Think again Balding Grey!

luna, I'm pretty sure I have it. I just haven't taken the time to rewind and watch it. I played yesterday's ESPN2 morning coverage and NBCs coverage on tape AFTER I watched the ESPN2 afternoon coverage. I fell asleep with the tape going. So.many.tapes...

As for Marat's statement on oldness. It was obvious that the reporter was asking how the guy played tennis. So, Marat's answer was very clever in his usual charismatic way. I don't know why the girl from that doubles interview would be about to burst into tears. Yesterday I played a really good male racquetball player who was playing left handed while his right wrist healed. I talked smack the whole time and we both had a good laugh. I would have told Marat to keep playing like crap and this girl would keep kicking his butt. hehe

Saumon, I know I'm supposed to know Rosset's name and why I'm supposed to know it. I just can't come up with anything. So, tell us his nationality, why he's supposed to be a known name, and why he was hitting with Marat on that occassion.

Jamie, Rosset is from Switzerland, he's the captain of the Swiss DC team (but sometimes also play with the team).
And he's a very good friend of Marat, which explains why they're training together sometimes.

The comment about oldness... i'm no too sure but i think he said something like that about Pioline last year too. Before the final of Bercy Marat was looking for a training partner and couldn't find any (last tournament of the season, all players were on holidays, or had left to prepare for the Masters Cup... no one in Bercy except for Stepanek, and the dubs teams).
For some reason Marat wanted to train with a French player. But they had all left Paris already. So Cedric Pioline trained with him. And i think Marat then did say something similar to what he had said about Rosset. But i might be wrong.

Luna>> Pioline is a former player too, and now a co-director of the TMS Bercy... but see, he still trains with active players when they ask politely

Yeah, that's what I thought, too. That's why I said he answered it cleverly when that was not the reporter's aim. That's also why I put the 'lol' smiley after I typed that he was cruel. Marat has a great sense of humor. Even the quote in the title of this thread was made tongue in cheek.

So, hopefully I have it on tape and can watch it later. A big CONGRATS to Feli. As nice as his lefty grass game looked in the glimpses I saw this morning, I don't think he has all the elements necessary to make it to the final and prevail. I KNOW Marat can test the top three seeds. At any rate, I would like to see Feli go deeper and show more of his grass skills. Good luck, Feli.

Take care of your mind and body, dear Marat, so you can come back strong and make us SHAKE.

I love Marat's KILLER look. Raw anger. I hope he can channel that force in a positive way against his opponents.

I totally blame JJ for wishing Feli luck and ESPN2 for not featuring Marat's match and the Wimbledon schedulers for not putting Marat on CC for his loss today. There is absolutely no way that Marat had anything to do with his own loss today.

Thank you for the pics, Sol. I can't wait to see yours, JJ. I can only imagine how VERY VERY nice he looks irl!!

you're a great, loving, resilient bunch, Safinholics. Hang tough!
very sorry
