Wow, Marat really surprised me by how well he played all through this tourney. Finally, he shows me why he deserves to be in the top 3....whereas the past several months I think he didn't even deserve to be in the top 20 with those sucky performances :eek:

Anyways, Congrats to Marat Safin on his first title of the year.

Notice how well he plays if he keeps his "emotions" in check.;)

From the interview:

" Q. Fabrice Santoro said before the match that this final was going to be the No. 1 player in the world against the best player in the world. What do you think about that?

MARAT SAFIN: Thanks, Fabrice. Thanks very much. I still love him too ‑ very much. He's even better, he beat me six times (laughter). "
