Thanks Liebig!!!! Uhmm, one is never satisfied with what one's got I guess.
I'm glad you liked Tallinn. I suppose you were here in summer when all the spring mess after snow was at least partly cleaned up.

And thanks my darlings Dora, Jiat.... At least you're not as old as me. Have a nice weekend everyone!!!!

Safin leads Russians
From correspondents in Moscow
February 22, 2005

AUSTRALIAN Open champion Marat Safin will lead Russia in next month's Davis Cup World Group opening round tie with Chile.

Russia, champion in 2002, has named an unchanged line-up from last year's relegation tie with Thailand to face the resilient South Americans.

In addition to an in-form Safin, Russia captain Shamil Tarpishchev has also called up Australian Open quarter-finalist Nikolay Davydenko, 2002 Davis Cup hero Mikhail Youzhny and Igor Andreev for the March 4-6 tie at Moscow's Olympic Sports Arena.

Youzhny, who clinched Russia's first Davis Cup title in 2002 by coming from two sets down to beat France's Paul-Henri Mathieu in the decisive fifth rubber, has been suffering from a nagging knee injury, but Tarpishchev said he will be fit.

"We only have four guys and Youzhny is one of them. I'm sure he'll play if we needed him," said the Russian captain.

Re: >>Davis Cup 2005<<

Peeps, OMG I got a good laugh!!!!!! In the news on NTV+Sport they showed the preparations for the DC!!! Dunno if anyone else saw this. First they showed the Chileans who already arrived and for the first time tried the courts at Olimpiisky/Olympic however you like to call the Sports Arena. They interviewed Fernando and Nando said the courts were really fast and they in Chile are more used to slower clay courts. Nando looked good. Long hair. Then the Russians came to train. And OMG OMG - Marat with hair like he hadn't combed it since he got out of bed. When he was hitting the hair looked a bit better. He sat on the floor courtside when Nando came and they shook hands for very long and exchanged some warm hellos. For all Zhenya fans - Zhenya was there hitting and, well, cannot say if he's over 105 kg but he looked prettttty big. I'm not the best person to judge, he had a "windbreaker" or jacket on or how you call it, but yeah, that was hilarious. He really seems to have problems keeping weight under control without playing tournament tennis every week. As for the Russian team they said the only problem was that Misha's knee was hurting again, then Misha said that he knew only Nando from the Chilean team, had only heard the names of the other players but they didn't show him saying anything about his knee. OK, that's all from the short news clip, the main thing - Marat & Co training already.
