Question What can we expect from Marat in the rest of 2005?

Well with his confidence back and the monkey of having won the US Open like 4 years ago off his back, I think we'll see him pick up another slam or two in the rest of the year.

I can see him winning the French Open. Afterall, that was the slam he first made his big impact.

He's always had the game and now he has the patience and calm of a multiple slam winner.

Also, he's trained on the red clay as a youngster in Spain.

I can see him winning the French.

What do you think?

Expect the unexpected

That's the only logic that goes well with Marat

I also think he can win the French Open....and I would be so happy for him 'cause he has said many times that his dream is to win Roland Garros

true, the dudes a madman but one heck of a tennis player.

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!

A good run at the French and US Open, maybe winning one.

Anything could happen at Wimbledon for a guy in form, with a massive serve, all the shots and no expectations. If Andy and Lleyton can take Roger to 4 sets there last year, who knows what Marat could do? Or he could go out in the 1st round.

No reason why Marat cannot win RG... Wimby -- he doesn't believe he can win it, but USO, of course, why not?

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

"Pero para mí el mejor es Roger Federer. / For me, the best is Roger Federer." - D. Nalbandian

"He's so charismatic." - Marcos Baghdatis

Expect the unexpected.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
