When the 20-year-old Safin [2] enjoyed the best period of his career, his peer Ferrero [13] had no chance regardless of the surface. In that period (April-November ’00) they met thrice and every time Safin’s ground-strokes were simply too fast for the Spaniard; Safin won…
– 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 in the Barcelona final on clay,
– then 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 at the US Open on hardcourt,
– and finally 6-2, 6-2 in the indoor event of the French capital
