David vs Russian Roulette: Nalbandian vs Safin

Nalbandian vs Safin going on. Set 5, 1-1, Safin serving
A Nalbandian victory is predicted. The despair of all tennis lovers world over, that moody Russian, Safin – why can’t he just play the sublime tennis he is capable of? He is a man who can beat Federer, and maybe even consistently or is that a wrong word to use in the same sentence as Safin? With him, every match is a game of chance, a game of Russian roulette.
A detailed post on Safin later.
Safin beats Nalbandian in a tie-breaker in set 5. That’s one more of my semi-final predictions out of the window. Big mistake overlooking Safin and also, didn’t realize Baghadtis would be playing Agassi this early. You never write these guys off. Ah well, now Agassi is out, beaten by Becker and Safin…well, hard to predict what he will do next, kind of like a random walk.
