Re: Marat news and articles

Fuck....

Marat, what the hell is up with you?! Climbing a freakin mountain in Nepal?! huh?! He seems lost. I guess he really needed it. But the timing is just bad...for now but hopefully, in the end, it works out to be a positive experience and it was indeed the right decision.

Just when I thought I've reached the height of frustration and disappointment....sigh...

Marat Safin

VAMOS RAFA!!!!!!!

Re: Marat news and articles

I don't know if you guys are aware of it but there is a climbing season, just like there is a tennis season - the best time to go hiking in Nepal and Tibet is mid-September to late October since the weather is the most predictable in this period (not that that means very much...). So unless you want him to get stuck on a frigging mountain, give him credit for sensible planning at least.

I think the whole climbing business is really cool - completely, utterly, totally unprofessional tennis-wise but really cool nevertheless. I hope he has a blast, extends his personal limits, finds some inner Zen and showers before he steps back into civilization

Re: Marat news and articles

I'm trying to be shocked or to be mad that he puts off his season...but all I can think is "GO BOY".... I mean for him the season is over....not much he could've do now...so why not trying to change smth or find smth... And is really cool to be a milionare tennis player you can take vacation whenever you want so why not doing it.....
So...all I can say is that I hope he comes back safely. and with pics from Himalaya...

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. (Albert Einstein)

I would love to see that!

Re: Marat news and articles

wouldn't two weeks hiking in Canada have been enough? Does he have to start on Cho Oyu?

It's much different in terms of cultural/historical significance. I don't know if Marat cares about that. But to me, the Himalayas are not just mountains, but it is a place of mythic proportion. I'm not saying that mountains in Canada are not nice or adventurous enough. But I guess the Himalayas are considered almost a sacred place, and going up there is equivalent to a pilgrimage. It's like going to on an expedition in a desert in Arizona and in the Sahara... not the same thing. Although both are deserts.

Of course Marat might just see it as the most challenging adventure. But I doubt that someone like him, with his extensive reading, wouldn't have on his mind at all the cultural significance of the Himalayas. That boy is probably a closeted romantic after all.

If you are good at something never do it for free....

I'm surprised Gab didn't point out yet again that he CANNOT GROW A BEARD

My today's google alert:

Marat Safin and Nikolay Davidenko wil be present at the Davis cup tie....


I cannot believe Marat is actually going to risk his limbs and live by going climbing this mountain. I mean you'd have to be totaly naieve to think you could survive a thing like that,being so unexperienced, he would endanger the whole expedition.
I bet this is "much ado about nothing"
Maybe he'll join the expedition for a bit but if he really will go all the way, I very much doubt it. He is not suicidel, is he?

I think there no doubt anymore that he's going there all the way.
