The last point is amazing, I cannot believe Marat made it, he almost need to dive for the shot. Well done Marat. now surprise that there is only one former Grand Slam winner in the draw and it is marat Safin, that gonna be cool if he collect anothe one, but I expecdt strong resistance from Johansson and Haas and Rios
Yeah, those points were played extremely calmy, I was holding my breath. It was clear Marat didn't want to take any risks. He probably knew Pete was tired, so he just made sure he brought the ball back and hoped for Pete to make a mistake in the end. And it worked.
Yeah, Eggy. Amit is Marat's manager and coach when Mats is not there.
I agree one thing that impressed me is Marat's maturity.... Notice that he did not let those bad calls bother him too much . Seems that he has finally overcome his habit of racket -wrecking.... Way to go Marat!
That Norm Chryst incident has made him stronger mentally.
This ESPN coverage is annoying. Marat gets criticized for complaining but Pete is right when he complains and his shots are out by a mile. Patrick McEnroe is the worst, Pete does not complain as bad as Marat, blah, blah, blah! Thank God Marat won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We now don't have to hear any more about Pete, Pete, Pete!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Marat! Win it all!!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah, the commentary by PM and CD is ridiculous. They said that Safin should stop complaining (which I actually agree), but when Pity complained few points in a row with throwing his racket, going on all 4, etc. he did because he wanted to win this match so much.
Thank you Marat for winning!
Thank you also for giving us opportunity to see womens tennis and players from other countries.
