Your take on things makes more sense. He probably was misinformed , unfortunately.

MARAT SAFIN
2008 will be better.

I like players that are extremely talented, hard working, and mentally tough. Some of my favorites have all of these qualities. Some of them do not.

Also supporting: Davydenko, Federer, Gasquet, Berdych, Moya, Nadal, Ljubicic, Chela, Djokovic and a bunch of chokers

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

Tennis - Coupe Davis - Safin en finale ?
Alors qu'il avait annoncé avoir terminé sa saison après le Master Series de Madrid fin octobre, Marat Safin pourrait finalement reprendre du service à l'occasion de la finale de la Coupe Davis, qui opposera la Russie, tenante du titre, aux Etats-Unis. «Marat a repris les entraînements le 11 novembre, a présisé le coach russe Chamyl Tarpichtchev. S'il retrouve sa meilleure forme, il jouera, sinon, il sera remplaçant», a déclaré le sélectionneur à moins de deux semaines du début de cette finale, qui aura lieu à Portland du 30 novembre au 2 décembre.


Le discours a donc un peu changé du côté du clan russe, puisque jusqu'à maintenant Tarpichtchev affirmait que Safin n'était pas en état d'être intégré au groupe et que le joueur lui-même, qui se remet entre autres d'une blessure au poignet gauche, avait annoncé qu'il n'irait pas. Les joueurs pour l'instant appelés pour cette finale sont Nikolaï Davydenko, Mikhail Youzhny, Igor Andreev et Dmitry Tursunov.

Brief summary: Contrary to previuos announcements, Marat might play Davis Cup. He restarted practising on 11 November. Tarpishev is quoted saying: "When he finding his best form, he will play, if not, he will be a replacement."

From the 'OS'
Quote:
26 November 2007

"Marat has now finished his fitness training in the mountains and will start his tennis practice from today in Valencia. Hernan Gumy arrived yesterday in Valencia and brought with him a new hitting partner for Marat - Guillermo Coria's younger brother who is 17 and a promising junior player.

At this time Marat has not made any decisions with regards to his schedule for the first half of 2008 past the Kooyong Exhibition and the Australian Open. This will be discussed this week in Valencia and as soon as details are available will be posted in the Schedule section."

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

Don't you just like the news headlines. From Reuters. And to all the lurkers.

Tennis-No chance of late Davis Cup call for Safin - Tarpishchev
Wed Nov 28, 2007 12:26am GMT

By Mark Lamport-Stokes

LOS ANGELES, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Russia's Davis Cup captain Shamil Tarpishchev has ruled out any chance of Marat Safin being drafted in as a late replacement for this week's final against the United States in Portland, Oregon.

Former world number one Safin has struggled to find top form since coming back from a knee injury and was left out of the four-man squad announced this month.

"This is our strongest team," Tarpishchev told reporters at Memorial Coliseum on Tuesday.

"I think that these guys play better than Marat and he is not going to be here."

Holders Russia will be represented by world number four Nikolay Davydenko, Mikhail Youzhny (19), Igor Andreev (33) and Dmitry Tursunov (34) when the three-day tie starts on Friday.

Although the Russians will be seeking a third Davis Cup title in just six years, Tarpishchev rates the Americans as strong favourites because of home-court advantage.

"It's not by chance that when we played in Moscow on the clay courts we won, because the clay court diminishes the attacking power of the players," he said, speaking through an interpreter.

Russia, spearheaded by the charismatic Safin, edged the U.S. 3-2 in last year's World Group semi-final in Moscow before going on to beat Argentina at the same venue in the final.

"Here we'll be playing on a faster surface and, of course, the serve and volley will be very important factors," Tarpishchev added.

"This is why it's much harder to use tactical elements here. Obviously, the surface makes one team stronger and diminishes the capacities in some way of the other team.

"This is why I thought that back in Moscow we had a slight advantage over the American team. Here, however, I think the American team has this advantage."

The Americans, bidding for their first Davis Cup triumph in 12 years, will be represented in Portland by big-serving Andy Roddick, James Blake and the Bryan brothers, Bob and Mike. (Editing by Ed Osmond)

I hope this ends all the speculations in the media. I think it's more like them having to leave Denial

Zubin Hathi (Roanoke, Virginia): Hey Dmitry do you plan to play doubles as well as singles with Safin or someone? Anyways good luck!

SportsNation Dmitry Tursunov: (4:09 PM ET ) We have talked with Marat about it, and we agreed that he will go and get ready for the next doubles season in the Hymalayas. He is doing some conditioning there, and as soon as the Davis Cup is finished I will join him there to discuss our strategy.


Mitya news and articles!!!

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

"* Griffin, Dallas: What other sports do you play and/or watch besides tennis?

SportsNation Dmitry Tursunov: (4:16 PM ET ) For that info, you can log on to ATPtennis.com. There is more detailed information there. But I have always enjoyed watching curling, it is a very demanding sport both physically and mentally. And my favorite athlete is Brian Boitano. There is something so beautiful about his effortless style."
