Djokovic vs. Safin: who wins?

Great opportunity for Nole to take a revenge on Safin after bitter loss in their single meeting 3 years ago in Melbourne on Rod Laver Stadium: 0-6 2-6 1-6.
It was Djokovic's first match on a big court and Safin's last great tournament I didn't know Djokovic and didn't see that match
I think Djokovic will win this match in 4 sets (possible two tie-break sets).

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

I hope Safin wakes up in a good mood and gives a beat down in 3.

I cannot stand Djokovic

Re: Wimbledon R2 WWW: Djokovic vs. Safin

well if Berrer could take a set I don't see why Safin can't take one or two

Djokovic in 3 or 4 if Safin turns it up (way up).

Re: Wimbledon R2 WWW: Djokovic vs. Safin

It's sad to say, but these days it would already been an achievement for Safin to win a set.

Too bad he has to play against a top player so early again. It was the same last year when he had to play against Roger in the 3rd round.

Apparently Djokovic didn't played that good in the first two sets of his match against Berrer today, but he will probably step his level up with each round.

I think Djokovic will be much more focused playing Safin, like he'll want to prove something. Though, I think Safin could get one if he played a very good set but I don't think he's able to play very well over entire match anymore.

Is it even a question?
Marat couldn't play on grass during his best years, let alone nowadays.

Re: Wimbledon R2 WWW: Djokovic vs. Safin

I would love to see Marat win but I would stunned if he did.
Djokovic wins with something like a 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 triple bagel job.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Re: Wimbledon R2 WWW: Djokovic vs. Safin

It all depends on which Safin turns up.
So, if Safin plays well he could sneak away with a set .
