Yeah, that depends on the perspective...We are focused on his gamesmanship and biased Safin fans in MTF...but what about the others who thought before AO Open that he was a joke, an underachiever, an entertainer, a clown..They were more annoying no?
There are lots of biased people there too.
Now that Marat won another slam, he's become suddenly the true rival, the savior...In fact, he's still the same.
How come Safin has never lost a match when he has been outplayed? He is just Oafing.
Maybe because he has never been outplayed.
No, seriously, Good point...But I didn't know we were that annoying for you.
That's why it was absolute shit that he pulled that stunt and the same in the AO final, then Hewitt did it as well and they were as bad as each other in this regard.
ok! He is in final again..and he is completly lost once again...He wants desperatly to win and uses this gamesmanship to regroup a little bit because he was not himself obviously...woow..TERRIBLE!
Nobody said he was perfect...And he was honest enough to admit that he had to do something to change the situation.
Not everything is black and white in sport or in life.
