Federer vs Safin was an awesome match. Probably my favorite match of the year. All year I have been hoping to see what an in form Safin could really do against an in form Federer and finally we got to see it. There were close calls for both players and both players handled it relatively well. Safin threw at Federer all the power that roddick did at wimbledon but with a more complete game and was able keep pace with Federer's genius. The match had everything - touch, power, control, emotion and drama. Hopefully Safin will come away from this match with boat loads of confidence to compete with Federer next year.
