...LOL - you may be right - it could be just as simple as that!!

If even the most handsome man is forced to resort to porn nowadays (for reasons of not finding a suitable woman, bla, bla, whatever nonsense he keeps babbleing on this topic. The right women exist! They're looking at you, kid! Hundreds of them!)... then the world is doomed, mark my word!
...I am tempted to almost take this seriously - but I don't want to - so I'll assume you are joking....I think Marat has ably demonstrated over the last 4 - 5 years that for HIM, there is no such thing as 'the right woman'.... and maybe it's not that hard to understand why, when you think about it and get past the 'most handsome man in the world' tag....

Probably in reality, as opposed to media coverage, Marat has once again effortlessly stolen the limelight from everyone within a 10,000 mile radius. Whosoever wishes to stew inwardly about it, may certainly do so.
...LOL - or, in Andre's case, stew NOT so inwardly.....

as for Andre's comments.....he has come across as a bit of a self-obsessed ass in his press so far on this tour, to my mind - although I don't really think Marat was all that phased or embarrassed by his comments - and his response was pretty much what you would expect - it's not the first time there have been "gay" rumours - there was yellow press trash way back - as were reports that there was porn on his phone - and I guess that can be interpreted as "normal" or a "flaw" according to your own opinion...

Even before Andre's ambush of sorts, he had demonstrated his tastelessness with that "I'll show you a photo of my wife - naked" - if I was Steffi I'd punch his lights out for that - anyways - even if he were gay, he's hardly likely to 'come out' in such circumstances - in fact, given the homophobia that is still rife he's hardly likely to 'come out' at all....(anyone interested there's a lot of discussion on the net about the fact that there are no 'out' tennis players - male ones, of course - somehow being a lesbian tennis player has some kudos these days...anyhow - I digress...)

What Marat was expressing in the rest of his comments about relationships is simply his independence, his "self-containedness" which is so characteristic of him - sure, his life experience has made him self-sufficient and totally independent - or rather, his fundamental personality, (being a free- thinking Aquarian with a Gemini moon) was particularly suited to the travelling lifestyle afforded by his pro tennis career - and he has never really conformed to the classic pro-athlete stereotype - with the smoking, the 'partying' (for which you could read 'womanising')all of which was typically over-exaggerated - but this reputation has stuck to him whether he likes it or not - there are still people who see him as nothing more than a lothario who 'wasted' his tennis talent - and it seems to me that those people fundamentally just don't 'get' Marat - at all.

Seems to me the press created his reputation because his non-conformity made him a 'colourful' character and his 'heart on the sleeve' behavior on court was merely enhanced by his off-court personality and charisma - his unpredictability made him perfect fodder and easy to write about - made all the more compelling by his physical beauty - lets fact it - he seems to 'have it all'..... and yet it seems to me that Marat himself is totally removed from the 'public' version of himself - for the most part he lets it ride and hides himself behind it - but if you listened carefully enough, there have been plenty of times when his irritation at the assumptions people make about him, at the implied trivializing of him as a professional came out - particularly in his final year....

Seems to me there is nothing about Marat that makes him suited to monogamy - in any aspect of his life, and therefore it's no surprise that even though he has tried 'settling' down in Moscow en-route to a life as one of the tennis establishment, he has re-discovered his travelling tennis life....modified to suit his own personal desires ...- and isn't it SO GOOD for all of us who love him to see him really having fun and being happy - single, gay, OR straight ???

Re: All the videos and audios of MaRaT!

Andre was really on a roll yesterday...anyone would think he had the hots for Marat as he seems unable to be anywhere near him without talking about sex....

.... Marat may be 'on the market' but his price - sure is more than $5000 dollars......

Re: All the videos and audios of MaRaT!

Grrrrr....OK - Andre AgASShole is really starting to bug me with his 'sense of humor' failures - clearly, he is the only one who 'gets' his 'jokes'.... in the 'interview' on court after the match, Agassi was asked would he come back next year with Steffi Graff - the 'punchline' of his reply was "I'll bring my wife with me next year and she'll beat Safin easier than I did..." well, split your sides laughing, everyone.....

Marat completely ignored the actual 'question'asked of him which was - "all these female fans have been screaming "I love you' and "marry me' - do you have a message for your female fans?" to which he roughly replied something like.. "It's lucky he is already married... it's my only chance to get married....thanks for making the posters and the signs and thanks for coming....I have no wife to bring back with me - but maybe I'll bring Sharapova?...or Kournikova?" he wanted the crowd to shout out their favorite but someone must have shouted Dinara - because he said "oh - my sister...that's easy!" - he 'promised' that he would bring one of them back with him next year...in the meantime - the doubles is about to start - I must stop hating on Agassi and remember that Marat is now playing just for fun and really, who cares about the 'result'...
...I'm watching this stream...

I actually fled the room, shouting "I can't believe he just said that" after Andre's "For X amount you get to have sex with Marat Safin." I just couldn't bear to watch the rest in case he dropped any more clangers. This guy seriously needs to look within, and get over whatever he finds there.

And yes, I mentioned to someone yesterday that Andre secretly wants him. As do we all.

...guess that means he's human after all - and not the animated garden gnome he has come to resemble.....

(and I wish Marat would stop screaming like a girl in the doubles - people might think he's gay.....)

Re: All the videos and audios of MaRaT!

OMG - he really can't stop himself...."I played with 2 different partners and we won - that means I am better than Marat"....and "I never lose to Russians"...he's seriously making me sick...and LOL - Marat's reply "you were lucky..." jeeze - Marat really has so much class - and so much more grace in his sentiments....preferring to compliment people rather than be snide ....Marat may be happy to see Agassi during the year - but I sure won't miss him....

Marat's on-court speech was hilarious! Thanks for the link and information, ladies.
