Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

Inez, sorry, but you are twisting it. He wants freedom in relationship and he's honest about it. And where does the "part-time parent" idea come from? He never implied it. He must be a terrible husband/partner but I'm pretty sure he will be responsible and good father.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

I wonder how his "I don't like being told what to do" attitude fits into his current career

Irochka, I guess you're right... it's better to keep silent sometimes....

И для него воскресли вновь
И божество, и вдохновенье,
И жизнь, и слезы, и любовь.

He probably makes himself believe that what he's being told to do is what he wants to do. I guess that's how it works for many of those so called decent people who at first think think that their good intentions justify the means and then after some time they totally lose perspective.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

As part of the Olympic Day celebrations in Russia today, Marat apparently took part in a football match between champions of summer and winter sports. Among the other participants was Alexander Zhukov, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia and Executive Director of the Russian Olympic Committee.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

This might be a bit on the trashy side, but according to KP.ru, Marat will feature in a TV programme about famous inveterate bachelors, called "Star Life: Doomed to Loneliness", airing on STB tomorrow (Thursday) at 8.00 pm.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

This may be in the wrong thread, but I suspect someone may have been editing Marat's wikipedia article...

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

Marat was in Kiev to take part in a "parliamentary tennis" tournament on 07 July. Via cskp.info.
He also played in one earlier this year in Moscow, on 20 May. Via sablin.ru.

Quote:

Ukrainian and Russian parliamentarians played tennis

On July 7 a friendly tennis tournament between Ukrainian and Russian politicians was held in Kiev. Co-organizer of an international sports competition was made by Center for Social and Conservative Policy (Ukraine).

Among the participants from the Russian side - State Duma deputy, first deputy chairman of the All-Russian public organization of veterans of the "Fighting brotherhood" Dmitry Sablin, Vice-Speaker of Russian State Duma Sergei Neverov, and Russian deputies Marat Safin, Daniel Volkov, Georgny Karlov, Sergei Krivonosov, Valery Solokha, Alexander Bryksin.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

Short itw via Trud.ru.



Quote:

There is life after tennis!

George Nastenko, № 095, 11 July 2012.

In 2000 Marat Safin defended the honor of the Russian flag at the Olympic Games in Sydney, but failed to win a medal. In an interview with "Trud", Marat, now vice-president of the Russian Tennis Federation, spoke about the chances of our tennis players in the upcoming Olympic Games in London, and also about his life after his retirement from tennis.


- Who's the favorite at the Games in the tennis tournament?

- Unlikely to be any surprises in store here. The contender is to be found among the Big Four: Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray. These tennis players should make up the semi-final pairs. They are so set apart in class, that each of the four is able to beat the rest of world's tennis players on hard, on clay, even on grass. And for women the situation is less predictable. Maria Sharapova, in the space of a month, on the same surface, can play at first very well, then poorly. Or in reverse order.

- Have the names already been approved of those who will make up the Russian team on the London courts?

- All of our strongest tennis players and tennis players are already known, but the team combinations in doubles and mixed doubles have yet to be decided for London.

- If Dinara played a full season, she would surely have received an invitation to the team. Will your sister be back in tennis?

- I don't think so. Although I've already said, women are less predictable than men. Including in tennis.

- Instead of Dinara, will her brother go to the Olympics?

- I'm staying in Moscow during the Games. Shamil Anvyarovich Tarpischev is flying with the team, and there is plenty for me to do here.

- After completion of the tennis career, what tools you use to maintain fitness?

- I play tennis very rarely. When possible, I play hockey. I accepted with great enthusiasm the invitation to play the charity match of team Sasha Ovechkin and Ilya Kovalchuk on my home ground Sokolniki. More often I play football. Minimum two or three times a week.

- What general relationship developed between you and football?

- From early childhood I loved two sports most of all - football and tennis. My parents gave me to tennis. Maybe it makes sense to say my life is undeveloped.

- But is there something about tennis that's better than football?

- The fact that the responsibility of no one else skinesh: most have to fight for the victory and fully responsible for the defeat. But it's easier in a football team.

- And among the tennis players, who is better at football?

- All the top Russian tennis players have some football experience, there was never a "no legs" in our team. But better than all of us is Igor Andreev. He's just a football genius.
