    That speech by Safin was top class. Classic stuff.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Yeah, Safin seems to be underrated as a speaker. But, man, does he some talent! His groundstrokes are just so fast and so deep, that is what gets the others, I think.

    YES! Marat takes Hewitt down. Hewitt was always an idiot, we all knew that (even his fans ) but his actions regarding the foot fault linesman was beyond disgraceful. Yes Hewitt played a tremendous and gutsy tournament, no denying that, but his behaviour continues to ruin any chance of me supporting him.

    He can propose to Cartright or what not and get all the media attention he wants, its Marat who is the real champion. As people have said, the top 4 should be seen many times in the Quarters onwards at grand slams for many years.

    But that's not him coming here and accepting he was making a stab in the dark!

    There was also some one who thought Safin would lose to Haas. Ofcourse Haas was unfit and lost in an earlier round

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    2 of the 4 majors for Safin. He has already said he has some thing like a no chance at Wimbledon!

    I am not expecting much more from Safin this year before the US Open. Its a big Federer Show I am expecting and hoping for.

    But I will look at Haas' performances closely and wish he shows good results this year.

    www.atptennis.com is good, cause they have links to the particular tournaments that are on that week. not all those sites have live scores, but some do, the masters series ones do for sure and really they are most important...

    Sania Mirza How Good is She???

    She was the firts indian women tennis player to reac third round of a Grandslam and lost to eventual winner S.williams

    the she went on to win the Indian open to be the first indian women player to win a WTA event

    she was the given a wild card entry to the Duabi open.

    where the two matches that she played so the biggest crowd their for any 1st round and 2nd round game

    she beat 36 ranked player in first round and now she has just beaten kuznetsova the 7 ranked player and current us open champion in second round
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
    RIP Craigos
