Re: marat will play Hong Kong Tennis Classic in January!!

I'd be verrrrrrrrrrrry surprised if Marat actually made it to this ... if it looks likely that he will, I may just have to hop on a jet to HK

Hong Kong is two hours away from here, and it's the most cheap international flight ticket available.

If this perseveres, I'm in!

Thumbs up Re: marat will play Hong Kong Tennis Classic in January!!

Now that he is nearing/will be retired he is playing no stress tennis. I have a feeling we willl see the Old Marat, Slam Marat , tennis off his racquet. The best may be yet to come.

"FREE AT LAST ...... NO STRESS" DAVAI MAPAT!!!!!!!!!!!


Retiring just means "Now I can Play My Game"


Very exciting
