Russian player Marat Safin has qualified for the season-ending Shanghai tournament by beating David Nalbandian at the Paris Masters. Safin strolled to a straight sets victory 6:3, 6:2.
Accordingly, this means that Safin has scored enough points to take him into the Shanghai tournament that will feature the world's top eight ranked players at the end of the year.
Safin is the third player after Australian Lleyton Hewiit and American Andre Agassi to book himself a place in the tournament. The Paris Masters will sort out who the other five players will be.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
