Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

I thought that interview was pretty harmless and true to fact except for a of wrong numbers and age that don;t matter, I loved the how he threw questions back at Ms. DFF and handled the interview in a polite non-controversial way.

Iana, thank you for the tip-off! Managed to find this pic in a slightly bigger size, plus a brief article: http://www.goserbia.com/Vesti/Vest/S...vo_u_Beograd_1

Once the first player of the world and winner of two Grand Slam titles, Marat Safin briefly visited Belgrade, that he liked the plan again to visit.

Safin yesterday arrived in the Serbian capital at the invitation of the family the best Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic and had numerous meetings. Just as soon as ten days, "hung on the peg racket" 29-year-old Russian began to deal with business, because it should be included in the organization of the second row ATP Croatia Open, which owns the license Djokovic family.

"Yesterday we had a series of interviews with Marat Safin in connection with the moće how to help our tournament. It is a great player, who only stepped in as the retirement of the water and wants to help establish real cooperation between the Serbian and Russian tennis. It is a good friend of our family and seek ways to engage more about Croatia Open, because I have Celje that organizes the tournament" was confirmed by Goran Djokovic, Novak's uncle and the director of the ATP tournament in Belgrade.

Marat Safin yesterday morning was the funeral of Serbian Patriarch Pavle, then had a business lunch with Serbian businessmen, to the evening in the club Frida. He did not want to give statements to the media and tried to avoid journalists in all ways.
So he was flicking the V at the Russian Cup awards.

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

Also from the same website, a pic of Marat from February 2008 on draw day for Russia's Davis Cup tie with Serbia. Marat didn't play this tie and I don't think he was particularly well at the time either, bless 'im.



Original pic with annoying watermark

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!
Rausa is a noted tennis coach as well as having been a good player herself in Russia. Among her students are Anna Kourokova, Elena Dementieva, , Nastasia Myskina to name a few. And here children of course. No doubt the awards wre for her,

Rausa didn't coach AnnaK as far as I know
Anyway she got one award last year and this year she just collected Dinara's award, so there is no sense talking about too many awards.

It was Larisa Preobrazhenskaya. Mea Culpa.
