GAME 1 ANAND HOLDS WITH FIGHTING SPIRIT

Vishy Anand held pleasantly with black for game 1 of the FIDE WORLD CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP.It seems Vishy may have a strategy of attack and not to play passively.If so then we are in for a treat.Will we get the Vishy of 2008 it looks like it from game 1.However one can't read too much in ONLY one game but there is a sense of a relaxed Anand ready for a fight.
