Thanks for the Eurosport link! I hadn't seen that one yet.

I saw the Oli/Xav one on the news. They were great!

Looks like Ollie really got Safin's respect...

Q. How do you feel about playing Olivier Rochus next?

MARAT SAFIN: Tough one. I really admire him. I know him since long time, since 14. And the way he plays, he is such a talented, it's really nice to watch. He's a difficult opponent. I lost to him one time. He had some great results. He beat Moya in the US Open. He can play great tennis. He beat here Kiefer in the first round. He made it to the fourth round. So he must be playing well.

He's really tough to beat. Even that he is not really, as everybody would say, he's not so tall but he's very dangerous. He's really dangerous and he has the all talent in the world.

Q. Because he's not so tall, does that make him more dangerous?

MARAT SAFIN: You ask me the same question, you know that. Come on.

Q. Does it make him more dangerous, the fact that he isn't tall, he has other weapons, no?

MARAT SAFIN: Of course. Of course. He moves incredibly well on the court. He has anticipation. He has a great eye, great hands. So basically he's very good.

Q. What's the most memorable match you played against him?

MARAT SAFIN: It's difficult. I never enjoy to play against him, actually. Monte-Carlo last year I think was a great match. He wasn't playing well before, he was struggling for a couple of weeks because we been talking before, right before Monte-Carlo, with him just about he complain he didn't win a match in five weeks. And we had to play the first round of Monte-Carlo. Three sets, tough sets.

One to watch

OLIVIER ROCHUS

Rochus has started the 2005 ATP season in the best possible way, reaching the semifinals in Adelaide and the finals in Auckland. Also being a force in doubles, the 24-year old Belgian collected his second ATP Doubles title together with countryman Xavier Malisse in Adelaide.

Ollie - Safin will be live on Sporza. Tomorrow morning at 5.30.

Great, it's been a long time since I got out of bed to watch a 'night' match of one of the Belgians!

It seemed like TBs were Ollie's enemy tonight . He was a break up in the 3rd but lost it and then they both held serve to the TB were Ollie just got rolled over

I can't say that I'm sad totally though because Ollie got to the round of 16 AND he's had an EXCELLENT start to his 2005!!!

Great effort by Ollie but at 1m65 you just can't have the same amount of cheap points that Safin has.
Ollie can't blame himself for anything. He played the best match possible against a strong opponent.
