Congrats, Marat.

Saved 4 bps in the 3rd set thanks to his serve. He got gifted the break in the following game due to 4 UEs by Berlocq. Some great volleys in the last game, especially at 15 all.

Muenchen: Safin def. Berlocq 6-3 3-6 6-4

Nothing to see here. Safin missed an absolute shocker at 3-3 30-30 final set and looked like he was about to implode but somehow managed to regain some composure and pull this one out of the bag.

Berlocq had 2 BP at 4:3 , Marat served that points very well.
From that point it was all Marat.
Berlocq is a solid clay courter so this is not easy win.
At times Safin's forhend ended up at Marienplatz :)

Some beautiful, great shots from Marat in the first set.
He managed to hold his nerves in the third and fight for this win. Happy for him! :)

It's not pretty, but he's starting to get the results lately. Good sign. He really needs to iron out his consistency issues though if he wants to climb back up the rankings.

Good win against a potential banana skin.

Hopefully he can take advantage of the weakened draw here. Next match is more than winnable.
