Just finished watching the match and the ceremony. Oh, my, I thought I could be cool, but I just couldn't control myself. Marat, such a nice guy off-court, a charismatic guy on court, a forever funny boy, an incredible character with hundreds of quotes, and a kind-hearted human being (had a 2 hour close encounter witnessing him in a car accident back in Cincy 2006).
I have always loved to watch tennis. Yet, Marat is the person that made me feel passionate about the sport. I still find his game and style unique and unforgettable, yesterday's match was such a great example.
Nice to see JMDP
sitting with his childhood idol and talked to Marat. Also, Novak, Gilles
, Tommy to say goodbye to him...
Thank you Marat for bringing us all the roller-coaster-ride excitements. MARAT SAFIN'S ERA finally officially ended..Who'd be able to replace you?
Oh, MARAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best of luck in your future projects and life!!! What can I do, tears keep falling down...
I will miss you so very much, BIG YIN! As a matter of fact, I have already missed you.
ps. This forum is not gonna close, right? I hope we can still chat about Marat!
