i can't remember where i read it but i think that the Fool is right. a tad exaggerated for effect of course
i don't there was any confrontation between bro and sis but Marat did hint at his frustration at her performance in one of his post-match interviews -- and only bec he was directly asked. the media have always asked him about Dinara and he has always been honest. i remember when she first came on the tour and faced Serena in one of her earliest matches and lost 0-6 1-6 -- Marat then said (when asked) that he was impressed that she had won a game off Serena. i also remember agreeing with him at the time. i don't remember him saying that she "wasn't keeping up with the Russian Revolution" specifically (perhaps the Fool can provide proof
) but i do remember him hinting at frustration at her lack of results.
i'm sure tonite he's proud...
