    Yeah it was a hell of a good game. If I was still in Shanghai I could have been there!

    I was backing Safin all the way in that game, he had to exploit Federers weaknesses and only won after 5 sets.

    Does anyone remember Safin's through the legs shot he played when he was match point down? I mean seriously, that was incredible.

    Oh maybe my memory is lost. I do remember a crazy match point for Federer incident. I wish I taped that beauty.

    Not sure as to how many, but that's only the second time in his career he's lost a 5-set match having led 2-0 - the only other person to come back was Hewitt.

    Yeah that was a top match at the Davis Cup back in 2003. Hewitt was down a break in the 3rd set as well. Big fight back, but Federer wasn't the player he was then as he is now, he's said that a few times. Mentally mainly. He just looks so calm and cool on the court now compared to in the past.

    good performance for Ancic to win it, but in all honesty it would have been a major shock if he didnt beat Mertinak, it was kinda a shame that Beck didnt play the last match cause it would have been a lot more competitive...
    having said that though it was great for Croatia to win it and more particularly for Ljubicic whose been one of the best players all year to lead the team to victory, i guess it was kinda disapointing he lost to hrbaty and missed out on the 20-0 record for the season, but i guess he'll settle with 19-1

    Great news about the Crazy Croat. It seems everything old is new again - Ivanisevic, Hingis etc. I'll be very keen to see how she has developed after having so many years out. Oh, and the development of her tennis game too!

    yeh hingis coming back is great news, the return of Dokic to Australia too, i just hope no one (the media in particular) give her a hard time, if she plays to her potential she should get back into the top 10...
