Q. What does it take for you to be happy about your game?

MARAT SAFIN: Well, it's good to know that you can move around the court without any pain and you can move pretty well and you can play good tennis without any doubts on yourself. So I think it's pretty good feeling.

But also, you know, you need some confidence, build up the confidence, because I didn't play any great tennis lately.

So for me to start the year this way, I think it's just to continue.

Well, Safin’s main focus should be on his next match against Marcos Baghdatis, who efeated Thomas Johansson to make it to the second round. Safin has two grand slam titles in his career including the 2005 Australian Open being the latest. So, for last few season he was not in great from. Now, let us hope to see an exciting match in the second round.
