Re: Safin=cheater.

Yes, it's only fair that we run this topic into the ground.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Safin=cheater.

I love this new attitude towards Safin. Two days ago everyone loved him because of pants episode and now he is the most hated player, perhaps second to Cry Baby!

OK he cheated but it won't get him very far. He is a better player than Nalbandian, certainly on clay, but tomorrow the 4th round match is all about fitness, which is not on Safin's side. Nalbandian will probably comfortably account for him.

Care to create a vote to check who is the most liked right now? I bet he'll still win.

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.

Re: Safin=cheater.

Ok - I'll do a compromise. Let's do a poll of the most hated and the most loved...and see who wins. For fairness, i'll put Coria into the most-loved poll too and we'll see whether he gets a few votes...someone might actually love him!

Do the normal options. I'll vote for Coria, as Marat doesn't need me.

Of course he will. Marat could act like Coria on a consistent basis and people would think it was "charming", because we know, attractive people can not ever be wrong or have negative attributes.

I lack direction.

Re: Safin=cheater.

Well, I found the shorts incident annoying and petulant too, so at least I've been consistent on that basis. I was also probably the only person on MTF who found Marat's classic, typically genial interview after the Mantilla match to be one long whine against the world rather than a masterful exhibition of wit, but there you go.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Safin=cheater.

I found his interview pretty whiney too. It made a JCF interview look happy go lucky in comparison. That said, I didn't say anything about it because there aren't 600 threads/posts complaining when other players whine in their interviews

I lack direction.

I'll take that as a compliment.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
