Very good performance from a very calm Safin. Paradorn played awfully though with zero confidence in about 90% of the games. His grounstrokes were extraordinarily weak, his serves were pretty weak and not well placed, his volleys were alright. I don't know how many times Paradorn put the ball right in front of Safin to smack. It's sad to see Paradorn lose all confidence like this. Good win for Safin though. He hit the ball very cleanly.

I wouldn't say destroyed. Srichaphan played as well as I've seen him play this year. The scoreline doesn't really tell the whole story. However Marat was playing some scintillating tennis in the first set. Some of his shots and volleys. At one point John (McEnroe) said something like all he has to do is get the racket to the ball and it's a winner. I wonder if Marat truly believes now he can win it, with all the news about his ligament rupture and needing surgery. Maybe getting to Halle and pushing Roger all the way has convinced him finally.

You know after seeing his tight match against rog in halle (i knew if he can put his mind to playing on the surface he could do well). I also felt he had a chance at wimbledon, and a chance of beating roger (if he can make it that far). The first set he played amazing tennis, serving well, and most of all (superb play at the net). Looking at the way he played in that set and from his previous performances (i dont think he has a real weakness apart from his mind). He will be a difficult player to beat for anyone if he has his mind on gear because he has the groundstrokes, the serve and the volleys He does seem to have some nice touch sometimes around the net, playing good drop volleys as well as knocking off a volley for a winner too.

I am really looking forward to seeing how he does this tournament though!

Nice win for Marat. And I hope his troublesome left knee is feeling better.

Marat could potentially meet Roger in the semi-finals.
