Roddick v Safin - Who will win?

The 2 of them are due to meet in 3rd round and this is a nasty draw for Roddick. They are set at 3 wins each but all have been on long, close encounters. What I saw of Roddick's first match, he didn't play well.
How do u think this will turn out?

Re: Possible third Round between Roddick and Safin..

Safin is still getting back to his best but he has always produced awesome tennis in Melbourne so who knows. Safin also hates tie breaks and most likely they will be Tie breaking so a little upperhand to Roddick. This is a 50-50 match imo.

There an only be One Nadal

Re: Possible third Round between Roddick and Safin..

Interesting to see if Roddick tries revving himself up by swearing at Safin

Marat will either stroke his face, or refuse to shake his hand. Probably nothing in between.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog
