Recently one time Safin won in very hard match Federer at AO. I met so many times in different posts the phrase like this " Federer is the best. But If Safin stabilizes his mind then..." Stop, boys, ha-a? Safin already has stabilized his mind and did it very long time ago. Yes, sometimes he plays very good and even won Sampras or Federer. But this is sometimes, boys. Stop ha ? It seems to you that he can't stabilize his mind because overall he can't play good tennis. Because to play against Fed or Pet you must be extremely concentrated. It is not possible for Safin every time, but possible in 1 of 100 cases. Stop ha-a , boys. He can't play good tennis, this is why his game and results are not stable enough, he may lose to a rookie, but can overplay somebody very strong. I'm wondering that some tennis " specialists" here even have impudence to compare Safin with Fed !!! Stop ha , boys. Go first to understand what tennis is and then discuss. When a player is a real master he doesn't need to fight against his mind and etc. , even awaken from the bed he must play good and without mistakes. It seems to you that something is incorrect with his mind, he makes mistakes simply because his techniques is not repetitevily good - this is the real reason why it seems so to you. Every REAL master IMHO must play stable. As Federer, Agassi, Pete, Hewitt. But not as Ferrero or Safin. Safin has to work as a horse to become at least 50% of what Fed is.
