Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

Hi, I started a new thread like Marat is starting a new season

To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything from Marat at Wimbledon. However, I do expect a lot on his best surface. Still holding onto the faith, and as Yogi says, "It ain't ovah till it's ovah"

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

I won't be able to follow most of the hardcourt season as I'll be away on vacation. I wonder whether that's a good thing

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

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

I'm definitely hoping along with you guys. For some reason, I found his press interview very hopeful for the rest of the season! And very important, I'm probably gonna have excellent coverage this year (thanks to Belgian national tv!)

DAVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAI

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

I'll be spending six weeks in sunny Morocco

I have a satellite there and might catch some tennis on german tv or something, but again that means kicking my mom away from the tv, which isn't always easy.

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

I'm not leaving till July 10, but I'll miss the big TMS tournaments. I think I'll be in time for USO for sure, but perhaps miss the start of the Olympics.

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

Forgive my stupidity for the following, but in the post-match interview he gave, he mentions the Super 9's. What tournament(s) is that and when is it?

I take it that he prefers hard courts better. Will the Super 9's involve hard courts? I know the US Open does.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

super 9s = masters series

the old name for the TMS.

marat's odd... he sometimes uses super9s then in other interviews kinda remembers to be politically correct and says masters... ah well... some terms just stick. like that rubish about "partially permeable", "semi-permeable", "selectively permeable" membranes. (don't mind that piece of useless info)

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

Most players still talk about the S9 events. I've heard so many players use the term.

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

this thread cheers me up a bit... at least i'll be looking forward to something from marat. Go marat! who said anything about giving up?!

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: Marat's Revenge: 2004 Summer Hardcourt Season

HOHO, drf716, it's just he himself that said "give up", but now he has apologized for that saying.
I have to do some other things to spend this three-week holiday. and then to look forward to the great result of marat on his hardcourt season!

NOVAK-DJOKOVIC

MARAT-SAFIN FOREVER

HIPPO, BLESS URSELF PLS
Good luck to GUGA MISHA CARLOS & FER

They showed Halle and Queens, so they're probably gonna continue on that path,no? At least the TMS and perhaps some other? And a decent coverage of US Open -meaning more than belgians- for sure!
I don't know... I'll already be happy with an hour here and there!
Yeah, viva Sporza - especially for us bums without Eurosport...
