Seems to me it's perfectly normal for a Safin fan! I can even tell what round he was in, by the length of his stubble and/or the colour of his wristbands/shorts/shirt. Again, perfectly normal behaviour ...

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

So, half of what makes the Russian so much fun to follow is that he has all these different personalities. The last collage was all about the "good for tennis, class act, sweet guy" Marat. This one showcases his rock star side. Enjoy!

P.S. MS, if you ever see this, heads up: we know you don't like the magazine-centerfold-celebrity stuff. Forgive us, but we just can't help ourselves. You're hot. Get over it.

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

This one is one of my favorites. Whenever I see this photo, I just feel like chuckling. Very, very, charming.

I'll give the guy who took this a very nice present.

Wow, great pics!
Does any of you have this picture with better resolution? I love it but I only have a small picture.

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

I pretty much love every Marat photo ever taken, so, this is a difficult task for me... (as I'm sure for everyone else) But, there are two things (outside of him actually playing tennis, and his face) that really stood out for me about this man -

1. His strut. I couldn't believe the way this man walked around, both while practicing and behind the baseline - he had/has a swagger about him that no other player (or man for that matter) I've seen has. It's so masculine and confident... 2. His service motion. I absolutely am in love with it - the power, the acceleration, the definition of his body when he hits it, the little tummy sticking out of the shirt when he has one on.. I don't know - it drives me nuts.... here are a few pics that represent these two things from my collection of favorites... enjoy!

Safin Strut:





Safin Serve:

(thanks for this one justsafin - I'll treasure it always)

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

Maratsmaiden: Yes, yes. "The Strut." Or, swagger. Or, amble. Whatever it's called, it's awesome. It's cocky, even.

The thing is, he doesn't seem cocky *at all* off the court. But on court, he uses it to his advantage. Players like Nadal and Del Potro intimidate their opponents by jumping/hopping/bouncing showing how energetic and ready for battle they are. Marat has enough presence to just stand there and intimidate people. Kind of like Russell Crowe in Gladiator. Other players have commented on it. Did you hear Verdasco in the "goodbye video"? He said, "So, big. So, strong. You have to be careful what you say about him."

I can tell you this much. If I showed up for a match and saw this as my opponent, I'd be scared, too!
