ok, maybe..I really don't know as they never played against each other.
Safin with his head on?
The real question should be : Is Safin unbeatable with his head on? or is Safin an OAF when he loses?
As a Marat fan I have to admit that I fantasize he's unbeatable (with his head on).
But Safin with his head on almost lost in the first round of TMS Paris Bercy 2004 against Ljubicic...5 days later he was the winner of the tournament.
He almost lost in R32 of US Open 2000 against Grosjean (7/6 in the 5th set) before winning the tournament in such a big way....
