Red face Hipponymous: A Refuge for OAF-addicted

Do you want to jet Marat as one of your favorites, but can't turn your eyes from that car-crash of a match because of the dim light in the back of your mind that was the 2000 US Open?

Well, then welcome to Hipponymous, where you can vent as you struggle with the phenomenon that is the Hippo.

No one will be denied the chance to speak, no matter your age, race, sex, poster rep or mental state.

and to all Marat addicts! I don't have a particular need to vent yet but it'll come soon when he loses to Kucera in the 2st rd at the Olympics! I hope he proves me wrong though!

Re: Hippononymous: A Sanctum for Angry Marat Fans

Which are the requirements to sign up into the “hipponymous” organization?.
I want to be there.

Re: Hippononymous: A Sanctum for Angry Marat Fans

Hello, fellow Hippononymites

I've been very Hippononymous this week. No Marat, no one to cheer for. I'm not happy the Hippo's reputation is growing so dark. You can't read about him without it being about his tanking matches or not wanting to play the Olympics. Tennis-X headlined his loss in Sopot: "Marat takes the appearance fee and runs". I wondered if he called Myskina up on the line...

I really hope he doesn't put in the same misguided "effort" into playing the Olympics, although he said the Russian players will get paid for being there. All things shouldn't revolve around money--especially when it begins to damage your soul. I think if he doesn't want to be there, he should concentrate on preparing for the US Open, like Lleyton and Agassi. Go to Washington. I'm sure Mrs. Guga would love for him to be there.

Tennis-X speculates that he will tank his first or second match. I didn't hear that he was practicing at all in Athens, and he didn't walk the ceremony, while I hear Igor and Mikhail were wildy excited.

I want Marat to put in the effort. We'll be watching, anyway.

Re: Hippononymous: A Sanctum for Angry Marat Fans

Also, maybe "angry" isn't the right term for the thread. Anyway, about Sopot, I wasn't really angry. More perturbed. I don't want to become apathetic.

exact...angry isn't the right term...I don't know...maybe more frustrated, worried or disturbed
anyway Hippononymous is the perfect term - you inspired my new signature

concerning Sopot I wasn't angry at all...But I saw yesterday the opening ceremony and I don't know why I was feeling uncomfortable.
They all were so happy to be there....But no Marat...and I don't think he was there
I have a bad feeling about Athens...(please Hippononymous help me)...as you said TF we didn't see him practising at all...it's hard to watch andy's or roger's training session pics....and no Marat
I have the feeling he wasn't even in Greece

Re: Hippononymous: A Sanctum for Angry Marat Fans

I saw Mikhail Youzhny and he was verrrrrrry excited
Basically was the only one in the russian delegation not to wear that white hat so maybe that's why they showed him a lot lol

btw I don't really care that marat was not at the opening ceremony (although it was nice to see Federer for example, he seemed so happy ) but if there are no reports of him training, well...
doesn't look very good

Re: Hippononymous: A Sanctum for Angry Marat Fans

Imagine Marat wanting to go to bed early to train the next day and be totally concentrated for his match(es)

I'm not so much an angry Marat fan, but I do get cynic at times

But venting? yessss lots of need for that. This thread is gonna be on top so much and all the newbies, passers by and lurkers will get very strange ideas about "so-called Maratfans" !
