There's an incredible amount of incompetence going on there.
I recently read an interview with Amit Noar about the gambling and I found his points moot and his arguments shallow. The webmaster is an hysterical fan of Marat, honour to her efforts, but she's not objective or reasonable.
Mrs Tommy Haas, you know what??? I think this is the first time I'm agreeing with you on something!

I think it calls for a celebration

Thanks

I'm not so bad after all. I think most of the time my comments are taken too serious, I'm just a bonker. I can't help it.

Since Cho Oyu the communication from the management was terrible. All those statements about Marat's state of mind made him look like a weakling in the end.
Emphasis on "how much he enjoyed his trip", his newly found energy, lost energy, re-appearing, healed maybe not healed wrist...
Such things make him the canvas for journalists imagination. I believe many of us have had some thoughts similar to those expressed on tennis.com
His webmaster reacts according to the OS forum, whose participants are mainly uninformed, young fans. It was their reaction to the tennis.com piece that caused this uncalled for reply under Marat's name which might backfire again.
People who do not love/support Marat have long found him a laughing matter so now it's going to fire them up and convince them even more.

Forgot: the piece on tennis. com is an open letter, not an article, in journalistic ideology that's something different. It is supposed to be provocative, not informative. It's asking for controversy. That's what an open letter is all about.

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

I said it long time ago when OS was launched and I stick to my opinion - Marat shoud have never agreed to have an official site. Marat and anything official don't go together.

LOL. I was so worked up I had to edit the previous message a hundred times. I made so many typos.

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

btw how stupid it was to announce on OS that he'll not play DC. First of all DC is too far away and a lot things can change. If he indeed doesn't play he could just discussed it with Tarpi and when the time comes Tarpi would announce the team without Marat and it would make perfect sense since Marat is the worst player out of the 5. But now, Marat is gonna be crucified in Russia I bet.

That summarized the whole problem with his OS administration. It almost seems that his team doesn't understand the concept of official statements, that once you say something, you can't just easily revert it the next day. You have to think and analyze the situation before you speak, not afterwards. So, if Marat decides to play eventually, you can expect another statement saying "Marat feels now that after a month of rest, he'd like to participate in his beloved nation's bid against the US.... This expresses his noble devotion to his team, his fans, and his country, etc. etc."...

That's actually part of his charm and one of the reasons I love him.
But we need at least some kind of more 'official' source of info from him.

In this particular case I don't see any problems if he decides to play. His reason for not playing is that there are 4 players better than him. If one of these 4 can't play for some reason then it would be perfect explanation for Marat changing his mind. But I don't understand what was the point of this announcement 1.5 monthes before DC. If they wanted to hurt Marat reputation they succesfully did it.

Masha, in most cases we have more reliable info from non-official sources

Our most reliable source is "поживем, увидем" (Wait and see). This seems like the best way with Marat.

I prefer BS coming from tabloids rather than BS coming from OS. The first case is usually almost harmless at least.
