Re: If only Marat had a brain :sad:

To begin with, he'd stop crashing that racket of his, as though it were responsible for his bad run.

Alternatively, he'd buy a brand that doesn't break.

Re: If only Marat had a brain :sad:

Life would be boring. I've said this many time, I don't think he'll ever be a threat on clay again. He just doesn't have the speed or accuracy that he use to have. He was never a patient player but, if anything, I think his patience has become even worse than before.

Re: If only Marat had a brain :sad:

I don't think the problem is that Marat doesn't have a brain. On the contrary, I think his problem is that his brain works too much. He gets up in the score, he's playing really well, and then he starts to think too much and he chokes.

Re: If only Marat had a brain :sad:

Marat was lucky to get away with that first set. That overhead on his first SP was

Massu: 6 winners, 25 UEs
Says it all. He fought back to level it but then got a bit too nervous at the business end of the set.
