Title? What title? (kremlin Cup)

Just wanted to say "bon chance" already.

And I also wanted to express my concern over Marat's strenght. Will he be able to play so mych tennis in one month. I mean he's been playing an unusual lot of matches lately and he might "run out of gas" again. Don't you think?

I know we should focus on Bangkokj now, but still...

Re: Allez à Moscou

maybe you are right, vass. but if he has played well, he will not want to stop also. the man who is excited might have enough strength. anyway, thanks for your reminding. it makes me think of AO this year. also VS roger... hope if he reaches final, we will not watch a easy loss cos his fatigue again.

Re: Allez à Moscou

He will be tired for sure...But we know that "motivation" and "confidence" are the key of his game...
and he really wants to win in Moscow...Hopefully he won all his matches in Two sets...We'll see

Re: Allez à Moscou

He's won all his matches in straight sets so fatigue shouldn't be a factor. Vass, you can't have it both ways. Do you want Marat to win or have another one of his "vacations" We've been waiting ALL YEAR for him to get his shit together and when he finally does and in the thick of things again you want him to take it easy? NO one has played more unusual lot of matches than Roger and it doesn't seem to be hurting him. Don't worry about Marat running out of gas, his got plenty in reserve from losing all those first rounds. Its TIME to play!


Besides, he'll get a week off to rest before Moscow.

Re: Allez à Moscou

I'm with Jessi on this one, but I understand that you're afraid he'll peak too early.

Re: Allez à Moscou

Even if he gets out of Bangkok monday (which everybody hopes of course), I presume he'll have at least 5 whole days to be filled any way he wants to. It isn't thàt much, but he's at home, hungry for more succes, had easy matches and indoor is his most comfortable underground.
I'm not gonna worry about that just now. When Paris and St-Petersburg come along, that's when I'll start if he keeps going this strong. But that's way too far in the future.

Re: Allez à Moscou

Marat in No 1 seed in Moscow. No other Top 10 players there, a pretty weak field really. I hope he won't just hang out in night clubs with his friends the whole week before the Kremlin Cup. That's what I'm a bit worried about! "Bad influence" and euphoria after his last sucesses! I hope the guys (maybe dad) will make him to hit the training courts too!

Re: Allez à Moscou

To reiterate what Jess said, physically Marat should have an advantage considering he's played very few matches this year compared to a Roger or Andy, who should be physically and mentally spent by now....If he blows it, it wont be a case of him being fatigued (which he shouldnt be ..) With Marat... if he's playing well he will continue to play well, if he's sucking he will continue to suck....to use a worn-out phrase, it's all about confidence.
