Karpov Will Make The Opening Move for Anand-Kramnik Game 6 Tonight - A Psychologically move by the Russian !?

According to the official site, Former World Champion - Anatoly Karpov (photo right) will make the opening move for tonight game 6 Anand - Kramnik.

He was undisputed World Champion from 1975 to 1985, repeatedly challenged to regain the title from 1986 to 1990, then was FIDE World Champion from 1993 to 1999.

Interestingly, Karpov beat Anand in the 1998 FIDEWorld Championship Final in Lausanne, Switzerland , so i wonder if it is a psychologically move from the Russian camp ( everybody know that Kramnik and Karpov are Russian) to bring some bad memories to Anand !?
