I know Safin got injured more often, but was his endurance every bit as good?

He recovered well from their long semi in 2005 AO to beat Hewitt comfortably in the final.

I didnt watch tennis at the time Safin was at his peak, was his fitness his greatest asset?

I don't know.. I figured if he was more fit and focused he should definitely have more slams to his resume then just two
