Could Marat Safin
be reliving 2005 all over again? The men's field is hoping not.
In his most dominating display since his classic match against Roger Federer
in the '05 Australian Open
semifinals, the giant-killing Russian overpowered
the third seed Novak Djokovic
winning 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 and will take on Andreas Seppi
in the third round.
At least the two ballers got to share a tender moment after the match, giving their fans a lasting treat. I guess I wouldn't mind losing to Marat
either if that's what I could look forward to afterwards, right Nole
