Good match with hard-flat shots from both sides
Hrbaty and Safin have very interesting H2H. They have played 16 matches (8-8) since 1998. According to my stats Hrbaty has won in his long career only 3 matches after saving MP but two of them against Safin! What's more interesting Hrbaty has beaten Safin three times 7-6 in the third, I can't colligate any other H2H with the same outcome.
BTW, Safin has lost 6-7 in the final set the most times in tennis history.
