Re: OMG I was wrong...marat is playing Sopot...

yeah read that too. don't know if I'm that happy with that but it's marats choose

"And how to say this one? The Russian one, doesn't have a bad one also. What is his name, the young one, the tall one? This guy, you know (laughter)? The one not playing too bad. He beat once Sampras in the finals of US Open. Do you know him (laughter)? Safin, maybe Safin? I mean, I don't know, I consider myself I don't have a bad backhand. Not super, but I'm working on it."

VAMOS

Marat&Rafa
* a little bit more 4 marat because he needs it *

Re: OMG I was wrong...marat is playing Sopot...

even it seems stupid that he plays Sopot (clay inmitten hardcourt season), but its Marat, that he plays there "to keep a promise".

Marat Safin - always the one and only

Re: OMG I was wrong...marat is playing Sopot...

yes marat is the top seed, this would probably a tier 3 event at wta standard for the quality of the field, apart from marat the rest are mostly top 50+ the cut off being 114

Re: OMG I was wrong...marat is playing Sopot...

i'd say he'll feel the pressure seeing as how everyone else will be in athens. but if he's playing to gain some confidence or build on his confidence...then...all the best for hiM!!!!!!!!

Re: OMG I was wrong...marat is playing Sopot...

The field in Sopot is so weak, that Marat normally couldn`t lose
On the other side we don`t know if he will lose by default to leave to the olympics in time.

Marat Safin - always the one and only
