Message on OS has been slightly changed with the added excitement of training in the mountains...woohoo!
"Marat has been enjoying his time at home in Moscow and has really rested his wrist by not picking up a racquet during this time. He is set to fly to Valencia on Sunday 11th November where he will meet up with his coach Hernan Gumy.
He starts with 2 weeks of fitness in the mountains with Miguel Maseo and then will start tennis practice on the 25th"
I would guess this means he won't be going to Portland for the DC...hope it doesn't mean he's training for the Andes trip instead!!
Thanks for the info, Helen. I never go on his official website so I'd miss all the updates without you guys.
Sounds good to me
A well rested Marat, keen on playing tennis, determined for a fresh start in 08
I don't really care about Portland. I hope the guys manage to come through without Marat but his career should be his main priority at the moment.
LOL about the mountains. I think it's a good way to combine his physical training with fun...why not
If he has more fun that way, I say go for it, plus the altitude will only impove his fitness even more.
Can't wait to see the result of his hard work next year
