Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

I thought it would be a nice idea to put all your favourite pictures of Marat in this special threat, like a tribute to his career.
I have always followed his career from beginning till the end with great interest, and I know I am not the only one :-) I thought this maybe a nice last thing to do.
Hope you like the idea!

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

Great idea Daniel! I was going to open a rare pics thread, could we possibly combine the two in this one?

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

With Marat retiring, I'd been hoping to see some rare older pics to surface on the internet, and lo and behold Championat.ru have assembled some here. They're not especially rare but they're large, fairly hi-res and free of Reuters watermarks! Once the pics is in scroll view, click to enlarge.

Here's one of my absolute faves, 18 year old Marat at Roland Garros after beating Guga in the second round. According to this interview, at 6'4" Marat weighed only 178 at the time, which is a rather weedy BMI of 21.7. Bless him.




01 December 2002, Davis Cup champions, after Youzhny's win over PHM.

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

I took the two shirtless shots (God love those summers in Cincinnati). The others are my absolute favs from elsewhere. Thank you, Daniel, for starting this thread.

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

Marat weighed 180lbs when he won the US Open, the perfect weight for him.














(person kept telling him he was rushing his serve, then he hit an ace)

That's a nice idea, but I'll wait til 2010 to come and post here.

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

Is it bad that based on the haircut and the outfit, I can tell exactly what year and what tournament all of these pics are from?

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

No comment:
Mawie: he kinda reminds me of me, he feels obligated to have every sentence be a joke
Maggie Tulliver: and he takes his clothes off when he sees a camera
Maggie Tulliver: it's a little pathetic
Maggie Tulliver: it's like his first reaction

Thank you, Andrea! This is my new wallpaper now.

I will share other hot shirtless pics I took in Cincy some other time. Never get enough of them.

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

I'm sorry to be a little self absorbed here but I have to say this is my fav. Not only he is super happy, but he's next to me! and with a new haircut and the palm trees and the sun...now I'm not a big fan of the miami drug dealer look but with that smile, I will happily snort away!
