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 :smash:
I think Djokovic will win this match in 4 sets (possible two tie-break sets).

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

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.

Marat couldn't play on grass during his best years, let alone nowadays.

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.

I would love to see Safin get fired up and unleash some good tennis, but I just don't see that happening anymore....especially in a grass court tourny.

Ollie Rochus and Birdman gave Roger tough time at Halle, so what?
Just check out Marat's record on grass, even before his injury it was embarassing.

My only hope is Marat's serve will be Ok for a couple of sets so he can avoid a humilating loss.

Joker's parents said that he is the future GOAT and should be #1 after beating Marat.

It'd be good if Safin turns up in fine form and makes it a competitive match, however I tip Djok to prevail in three possibly four sets.

safin is an extremely gifted ball striker who has immense power from the baseline. BUT his best is far behind him now, and is now a half step slower then in his prime, his desire to win has decreased and JOKER is way too effective, brutal and accourate from the back court. JOKER IN 3 EASY SETS, MARK MY WORDS.....
