Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

Listen, guys, I admit: I really am tennis ignorant!
.
But why do they give mama Rausa so many awards in Russia?! I mean, besides Marat (and, arguably, Dinara) what else did she do to for tennis so grandiose that it deserves yearly public recognition?!

PS: As regards Marat’s dressing up for the same event on the 16th….man...my man…Marat… remember that great combination you’ve sported in Kishinev some 2 months ago (dark grey suit + purple shirt)?…that was great, it made your green eyes pop. Brown and black on the other hand makes you look like a working class widower from Odessa at his mother in law’s funeral! May the working class, widowers, Odessa and mothers in law excuse me…

I sometimes think that Tursunov and his fancy pinkish shirts are the only piece of class in men’s tennis!

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

Rereading what I've written above, I feel ashamed: the handsome devil looks great in a suit!

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

I think Mama Rausa was just collecting the award for Dinara since she couldn't be there. Dina is receiving treatment for her back injury..

And also Mama Safin was the first coach for many of the successful Russian players (not just Marat and Dinara)so here award last year may have been for that..

As for the suit - I don't mind whatever he wears.. I just wish he would shave!

Rausa also coached Dementieva, Kournikova, and Myskina...I feel like I'm missing a few. She's a LEGEND

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

No comment:
Mawie: he kinda reminds me of me, he feels obligated to have every sentence be a joke
Maggie Tulliver: and he takes his clothes off when he sees a camera
Maggie Tulliver: it's a little pathetic
Maggie Tulliver: it's like his first reaction

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

Photos of these photos have already been posted by Papatya and I've managed to find the actual pics.
The girl Marat is posing with is called Dai Fei Fei and she's a model-slash-actress.

Video clip, advertising the magazine presumably. A rough translation from Mandarin would be very welcome!
This page is also showing a vid, most likely the same one, but I don't have the plug-in.

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

The girl was a player of Rhythmic Gymnastics and now a model/actress/teacher, I never heard of her before though... I think these pictures were taken on oct.4 after Marat finished his practice.

Actually there's not much to say about the video,it's just a commercial of the magazine which is attached to the biggest television network in China--CCTV.

Here's the article in the magazine: http://sports.sina.com.cn/t/2009-11-...94702238.shtml I'll make a rough translation.

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

I only translated the interview, the article is just a bunch of crap. Even the interview, I don't think it's 100% original...I didn't buy the magazine, I wanted to, but after reading the article, I decided I'd rather not. Anyway, here's the rough translation:

DFF: Why do you choose to retire in China Open? (Actually a large number people in China, even some journalists, thought Marat was to retire in China Open “thanks to” the joint effort of the organizers and Chinese media.)

MS: Not exactly, it’ll just be a ceremony, I still have a few tournaments to play, I’ll retire at the end of the year.

DFF: Do you consider yourself a fighter? If you feel like losing a match, have you thought of giving up?

MS: I used to be, and I’m still fighting for victories. I won’t give up until the last moment. However, many times things just don’t go the way as I want them to.

MS: You used to be an athlete, so do you think winning is the most important thing in competition?

DFF: The goal of taking part in a competition is to win. Of course, I won’t feel too sad to lose if I have tried my best. Failures help me to have the power to defeat the opponents.

DFF: If it weren’t your mother, what will you probably be doing?

MS: Thank God she pushed me to play tennis so that I become who I am today, although I preferred football and hockey. But it’s hard to say what I’ll do if I didn’t play tennis.

DFF: You were sent to Spain to learn tennis at the age of 13, what was the life like, all by yourself? What has the country changed you?

MS: Actually it was 14. Though all alone in a foreign country, those days helped me to become who I am. Spain is a great country, people there are enthusiastic and easy going, so I can focus on tennis and did not get distracted. I got the enthusiastic and casual side of me from the people there.

DFF: Winter is long and cold in Russia. Such severe weather toughens one’s character, are you?

MS: It’s cold and vast, so sometimes it’s rather difficult to focus. Tough? Maybe.

MS: How about your 13?

DFF: I trained in the regional team of Guangdong Province then, I could only go home once a year.

DFF: I was a rhythmic gymnas player, do you like rhythmic gymnas?

MS: It seems nice, but I haven’t watched much. It’s popular in Russia, but China is even better in competence.

DFF: You become an icon in tennis because of your look, your achievements and special character, who do you think will be the next one?

MS: It’s hard to say, there’re various definitions of “Icon”. Since I am special, the next one will be special, too.

DFF: You’re known for rackets-breaking, can you remember how many you have broken?

MS: Not really, too many.

DFF: You had a lot of girlfriends, so I can say you are an experienced man regarding woman?

MS: (Laughter) I’m a man, of course I like woman.

DFF: What’s your favorite type of woman?

MS: Beautiful faces can’t last forever, women are beautiful only when they are special.

MS: what are the qualities you value most in men?

DFF: Tolerance, confidence and dignity.

MS: What’s your standard of man?

DFF: It’s too high to reach.

DFF: It’s said that you have been invited to the party of Playboy, twice. Have they told you why?

MS: Actually only once.

DFF: Some people said you went twice.

MS: That’s bullshit.

DFF: Have they told you why?

MS: Nothing special, I was in LA at that time, so a friend of mine invited me.

DFF: There’re many cover girls in bikinis in the party, what do you feel at the moment you
opened the door?

MS: Well, it was nice, it was a rare experience, very impressive.

DFF: A lot of women are attracted to you, but sometimes women bring troubles, how do you deal?

MS:I never thought women would bring troubles, it depends on how you treat them. I respect women.

MS: Sometimes men bring troubles, too

DFF: When two people love each other, troubles would be nothing.

DFF:Do you like taking risks?

MS: Depends on whether worth it.

MS: How about you?

DFF:I don’t like risks. I don’t like to take chances or to take advantages, just let it be.

DFF: Is life and love an adventure for you?

MS: It’s more of a gift, not adventure, but pleasure.

DFF: How do you enjoy yourself?

MS: I have many plans. After retirement, I’ll travel around the world. Though it’s impossible to enjoy freedom, I have to practice and do other things, I try my best to find the joy in life, the more important thing is to live the moment.

Gennie, thanks so much for the translation! Either Dai Fei Fei got her gossip from the same place I did, or she read page 11 of the 2009 hardcourt thread!
