French Open...comeback comes up short

Marat Safin angered the French Open crowd with his antics, made them ooh and aah with his shot-making, and finally coaxed them into warm applause when he walked off center court at Roland Garros for the last time of his tumultuous career.

The former No. 1 went through it all Wednesday, but he couldn’t pull off another win, losing to French wild-card entry Josselin Ouanna 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4), 4-6, 3-6, 10-8.

I heart Safin.
