Good job marat

Nov 3rd, 2002, 04:55 PM
Yay!!! I hope Marat gets some majora confidence from this victory.
Also i hope Agassi does well in China and takes the number one spot from lay-ton.

Nov 3rd, 2002, 05:11 PM
Congrats Marat!
especially on your bagel :rolleyes:
And don't worry, Agassi won't take over the number one spot from Lleyton. :p even Marat said it.

Nov 3rd, 2002, 05:29 PM
Too bad for Lleyton, but Marat was just too good today.
But Go Lleyton, end the year on number 1!

Skinny butt beat him twice this year and is world #1! :rolleyes:

Marat is my co-favorite with Lleyton! Marat is one of the VERY FEW "power players" whom I adore. I don't consider him JUST a power player cuz he rallies and plays great angles and every shot imaginable. He won the first set against Moya with a drop shot and won match point incorporating a backhand topspin lob to regain control of the point and then hit an angled forehand winner off of the Moya's smash to win the match!!!! He plays with such control and doesn't try to bludgeon every ball. He is soooo sexy too because even with all his power he doesn't disrespect his opponents like some macho power players. He is a real champion just like LLEYTON is!!! Lleyton played some seriously good points too. OOH Marat just played a great point but Lleyton won it with a great lob which Marat answered with a high backhand overhead but then Lleyton hit a reflex dink lob up the line and Marat caressed a backhand volley short crosscourt to put Lleyton in a tough spot but Lleyton pulled a drop volley out of his ass!!! This is great stuff. No just wham, bamm, hit or miss power tennis a la Venus and Jennifer and Andy. :rolleyes: This is why I like SERENA so much more than VENUS! Serena has all the shots. Actually Venus does too but Serena embraces all aspects of the game and Venus is all about smacking the hell out of the ball. :rolleyes:

Skinnybutt swallows a bagel!!!!!! wooohooo!!!!!!!! :bounce:

Nov 3rd, 2002, 10:31 PM
That was such a great match and it was the 2000 Marat playing again :D:D

Congrats :kiss: :bounce: :bounce:

Nov 3rd, 2002, 10:32 PM
That was actually the second one for the year!! The first one being served by Roger Federer in Hopman Cup!! ;)

Yeah.. good to see Marat just served him a fresh one... HAHA!! :D

"Mr. "World #1", would you like some jam & butter on top of the bagels?" :p

Nov 4th, 2002, 05:11 AM
Congrats Marat! :D

Nov 4th, 2002, 05:45 AM
Congrats Marat! You are my fave! Please have confidence that you can take the title in Shanghai home!!!!

Thanks for that bagel! Tasted SWEET!!!!

Nov 4th, 2002, 06:24 AM
lol this is amazing, someone finds an excuse to diss Venus in an ATP thread about Safin and Hewitt!

Anyway this win is nice but I knew he could do it all along, so I'm not surprised at all! :D

Nov 4th, 2002, 06:29 AM
congrats Marat...hope you can continue playing like this.:angel:

Go Marat, you have to win in Shanghai.

The bagel was bliss :)

Like I said, when you're on fire, nobody even comes close :)

Let's see here -

Go Agassi take over number one (he won't though).

Marat, it's about damn time you won a title.

Hewitt, you just can't buy a title these days, huh? ;)

Nov 4th, 2002, 08:36 AM
Would Marat be no.1 in case he wins the Shanghai tourney????

***calculators expected*****

Nov 4th, 2002, 08:37 AM
I wanted Lleyton to win, but congratulations to Marat. I didn't see the match, but I've heard that the main problem for Lleyton (as always) was his crappy 1st serve. That combined with an in-form Marat = bagal

Marat can not become number one, even if he wins ALL his matches, and Hewitt wins none.

He is more than 150 points behind, which is what the undefeated winner gets.

No, but he can get #2 if Agassi goes out early and Marat wins...but Marat is expecting Lleyton to finish as #1

Nov 4th, 2002, 09:30 AM
thanks Becca & untitled2284.:)

ok, Marat just needs to win the Shanghai title then to end his season with a big bang and could serve a warning to his rivals next year.:D

It will be hard to pass Hewitt, anytime before the March hardcourt swing.

Hewitt defends next to nothing untill then, and Safin defends a slam final right off the bat.

Nov 4th, 2002, 09:45 AM
yeah right....but if Marat could win this Shanghai thing then he would be inspired enough to win the Australian Open.

With the current ATP Champs Race, I think ranking points would start from the scratch right?????

Nov 4th, 2002, 11:54 AM
When Marat is in form nobody can stop him ! I watched the match , Marat is irresistible . Vamos Marat !
