Another lovely day at the LA Tennis Open! Which of course means lots of new photos of Marat Safin.
Pete Sampras may have been Monday night’s Tournament Honoree (click here and here for more), but the LA tournament is turning out to be Marat’s party. Monday he played Pistol Pete in a hard-fought exhibition match, followed by doubles with his partner Igor Kunitsyn vs. Baghdatis/Sela, and Tuesday was his first round singles match against Indy-champ Robby Ginepri (followed by some pattycake with local kids.)
So far, Marat’s won every match. (He plays Ernests Gublis Wednesday.)
Dare to dream, Safin fans!
