Marat Safin's last minute trip to Dubai was cut short today (no pun intended - I swear!).
The Russian giant, who took a wildcard into the tourney, was defeated by a still-injured Richard Gasquet 3-6, 7-5, 3-6 in the first round. The Frenchie headcase will face either Serb Viktor Troicki or Simone "The Beautiful" Bolelli in the next round.
Good win for the struggling Reeshard - blah, blah, blah - but can we talk about Marat's latest buzz cut? Do we like him better with his longer locks??
