Welcome back Maratski .

Well fought Kolya but, and I hate to say this, Russia's #1 is back.

Congrats Marat and welcome back to the tour.

Luckily for him his favourite guy Santoro lost and now he plays Oli Rochus.

Hmm I watched the game on tv and I think Marat still has a long way to get to his prime again. Safin won because Davydenko was pure crap today...

Safin's serve is gold right now. That was what saved him today. The serve and Kolya's UE...

Yes. When I saw the draw I thought: not Kolya in the first round and Fabrice in the second .

Well the misfortune of some makes the fortune of others.

He played great for a first match in the season.
Welcome back Safin.
Davydenko played well in the first set. I guess he got exhausted by time.
Looks Like we 're gonna enjoy some good tennis INShALLAH.

fftopic: were those Safin's Coach children sitting beside him? they look
Lovely

Kolya was pretty good in the first set. Marat's UE were double Kolya's.

Sure Marat has still work to do before he returns into shape but for a guy that's been away for 6 month with an injury and lack of match practice to come back and beat a top 5 player, he surely deserves a thumb up. Yes, his serve was gold, but isn't it supposed to be?

*Edit: I meant top 5 player not top % player. Sorry .

I think it's normal, you can't expect to be at your best right in your first match after 7 months without playing... So it's a very good win for Marat, well done man

But the hair
