according to wilanders, we should rescue marat

on wilander's blog:

Rescue Marat.

Tuesday night over dinner, the conversation turned to Marat Safin who lost yesterday. Being the only non-tennis pro at the table, I sat back and listened. There was a lot of concern expressed about Marat's performances of late, and Olivier came up with the idea of opening a new website called rescuemarat.com. I asked what would be posted on the site, and the answer was "a site for people to send love, support, money, encouragement, whatever, to make Marat feel better and encourage him to play better". Well, we are not going to start a new site, but the feeling was that he has much talent and skill that is being wasted. He could easily be competing with Nadal and Federer for the top spot. He probably only has 5 realistic years left in his career and for him it is now or never to end his career without any regrets. As Olivier says, "the energy he could get from the next 5 years would last him the rest of his life." Profound, eh?

Diego: Marat make a move..............now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Life is short....make a move!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Olivier: Rescue Marat is a main goal. He is the real spirit of this sport we all love. Like all the genius, he will be understood the day he quits... Understood in which way????

Mats: Save Marat, he completes the trio, Federer, Nadal and Safin!!

Marat can rescue himself.

But I wish he would - he's such an awesome player and personality and I thought he'd get back up the rankings much faster than this - he's been back since Dubai.

Re: according to wilanders, we should rescue marat

I can send to Marat love but after Roland Garros, i keep it for rafa for the moment

I'm really upset by the situation of Marat, as Mats said it's a real waste of talent, and i wish he'll recover his level of 2005 very soon !!! keep holding on Marat

If someone isn't trying to save himself, I doubt that anyone else can do it.

Besides, no one loses in such exciting and creative ways as Marat. He's practically turned it into an art form.

Poor Marat. He's nowhere near where he belongs. He played well on the grass last season ...well apart from that loss to Fidgiano at Wimbers , so hopefully he can turn it around. I can see him having a strong finish to the season

I'm not sure either he would be very happy with a website rescuemarat.com
Sure, he knows he has to do it himself.
Good luck marat, hope you turn things around pretty soon
