Happy birthday Marat! Celebrate in style. By becoming the 2002 Australian Open champion.
But I am not nearly as confident as most Safin fans. The heat is a big problem for Marat. We saw that the other day in his match against Tommy Haas. And Thomas Johansson knows how to beat Marat. And Johansson will have the Swedish crowd on his side. That could upset Marat and lead to his being upset.
