Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

From the OS:

Quote:
23 March 2008
Marat News: Marat spent the last few days in Boca Raton practising with Yevgeny Kafelnikov and his trainer Miguel Maeso who has come across from Valencia to be with him in Miami. Marat arrived in Miami on Friday the 21st. Hernan Gumy who went home to be with his wife who is expecting a baby (still waiting) will fly back on Tuesday to Miami to be with Marat. Marat and Hernan Gumy get on very well together and they are a good team. That is why Hernan will be with Marat.
Marat has been working hard, he is feeling fit and hitting the ball well. He is still out there and still trying to do his best. If he didn't love his "job" he would not be there. All he needs is to find that magical link and win and he knows the desire will be there. He is taking it day by day but whatever the desire is still there to win.

FAN OF THE BEAUTY

The style of the OS news cracks me up...I wonder how many of us are really interested in reading the above motivational sentences about "magical links" in the NEWS section; on top of that, these also do not make too much sense, especially the last one...

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

Same ole bull, in the same ole poorly written package.

Yarina, I guess it is news that:
a) Marat and Gumy get along
b) Marat still has a desire to win
c) Marat is practicing hard

you know, even though OS has been running different variations of the above for the pass 5-6 months. I guess that's all there is to say.

Unless Kafelnikov is there to "slap the mess" out of Marat, then this is same old same old. (which would make laugh, but would also kind of make me feel worse for Marat than I already do).

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

Heh, I can probably quote every OS news post from memory. And that's because except for a few names and places, THEY'RE ALL THE SAME ARGHARGHARGH

Джиетка: why are you swiss?
Gabrielle: to show my support to federer you know, the slump, the career threatening illness..;

Re: News & Articles - Yeti Premonitions

I felt bold this morning and checked the new OS forum. I found this "gem" there - just cracked me up! I had to share it. It will teach me to NEVER go there again...

arvind13: "I was thinking: it may be false optimism, but maybe these first round losses to melzer and reynolds was just a case of Marat trying to remodel his style of tennis and experimenting with it, instead of desperately trying to win. maybe he's thinking long-term and by the end of 2008 hopes to be in his best form and actually might win the US Open or at least advance far in the draw. who knows?"

Now we know, he's losing on purpose!
