ahah, every time I'm about to forget about the Safin-Agassi epic, a thread like this happens – then I remember how close Andre was from "being up four sets to love".
It certainly could have happened that way.
But all credit to Safin. It isn't like Agassi handed it to him or anything.
What I enjoy so much about this match (and I only just rewatched the first set a few nights ago, still 4 more to go) is how each will hit ridiculous shots and neither the guy that hit the shot or the other guy will have much if any reaction at all. Just two professionals going at it.
Hard to remember this about Safin because of his antics later in his career.
