Could Marat Safin be reliving 2005 all over again? The men's field is hoping not.
In his most dominating display of tennis since his '05 Aussie Open run, including the classic match against Roger Federer in the semifinals, the giant-killing Russian overpowered the third seed Novak Djokovic winning 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 and will take on Andreas Seppi in the third round.
At least the two ballers got to share a tender moment after the match, giving their fans a lasting treat. I guess I wouldn't mind losing to Marat either if that's what I could look forward to afterwards, right Nole? *sigh*
UPDATE: Here's a video featuring post-match interviews with Marat + Nole:
