Re: Marat news and articles

yes, thanks Nicki!

I agree 2004 should be very interesting and exciting. I would love to see Marat and Roger, the two most talented players in the game, dueling it out for the year end No.1 spot.

Re: Marat news and articles

and it'll settle once and for all the 'who is the most talented player in the game' debate

Re: Marat news and articles

i just think a lot of people have forgotten how talented Marat is or they just haven't seen him at his best. Hopefully, next year he'll play some great tennis and show the world his true talent.

Re: Marat news and articles

yeah most people have forgotten how brilliant Marat can be (even I admit it HAS been a while)....there's more to rave about in tennis than Andy Roddick and his serve (pass the sick-bucket please.....)
Hopefully Marat will comeback in fantastic form to refresh their memory....

Re: Marat news and articles

Interesting interview with Andrei Chesnokov from early 2002.

What would you say about our young players?
It seems to me that Denis Golovanov is not a bad doubles player. Though for a successful play in singles he needs to work a lot more and yet more… Michail Yuzhniy…

Will you come to see the match with the Swiss (Davis Cup)?
If they invite me – with pleasure! In general, you know, I really want the Davis Cup be ours. With such team – Kafelnikov, Safin… If the French have won it, why can’t Russia? It’s about time!
At the same time, unfortunately, I cannot call our present team united. Kafelnikov gives 100 % in every match. Because he really wants to win the Davis Cup, the same as he wanted to win RG, the Olympics, the same as he wants to win Wimbledon, US Open. But next to him in the team there is a person who , I think, does not support him in those aspirations. So- so, passes the time. The impression is that he does not need the Davis Cup. At least, one can see that “Kafel” plays, and some do not. I will not call the name, let all guess for themselves. Inside the team we talk about it, but it wasn’t said a single time in the press.

I think, everyone already understood who we talk about. What do you think prevails in Marat if not the desire to play, desire to win?
It’s better to ask himself about that and his managers.

Recently there has been talk going around that you don’t mind working again with him in the position of a coach?
To work with him was really interesting to me. And I think something came out of it then – in the beginning of summer 2000. But even if I again want to work with him, I absolutely don’t want to collaborate with his managers and agents.

Why?
I don’t know. It’s hard to explain. They do not understand what ordinary human relations are all about! I personally don’t like communicatig with them. When once I spoke to one of them he simply replied with a “uncensored phrase” addressed to me.

But what about Marat himself?
He believes his agent so much! He’s for Marat simply as air! He (Marat) thinks that there’s nothing else! Though he is mistaken, this is not so! By the way, Kafelnikov shares this opinion. Marat has gigantic talent! – and to bury it that way! It looks like they are not going to offer me a new colleagueship. Though the work of agents is contracts, sponsorship… But when they tell Marat that he needs to work with Piccard, Edberg, Wilander and he agrees to everything – I don’t understand. How can’t he see for himself who to work with and what to do?



PS:And here is what Anatoliy Glebov had to say in his interview to Tennis+ in 2002 –Excerpt:
..I wish him (Safin) to find his own coach, and would be better, I suppose, if this mentor is Russian. Would be great, if his managers truly helped him with that.

Question: Why didn’t he get along with Chesnokov?
Andrey (Chesnokov) is a great fellow, good coach, and their relationship clicked. But happened what happens often ….– wives get involved. All of a sudden they start ruling. But here is man’s business. …… It’s a pity that Marat and Andrei Chesnokov have split, this is my subjective opinion.
