Re: Marat news and articles

Marat

So sad to see him pulling out of a tournie he loves so much because he has zero confidence. But it was the right move.. who wants to see him suffer another agonizing first rnd loss, anyway? Not me! Marat is just in no shape physically or mentally to play and i'm glad he has decided to put an end to this nightmare season.

Have a good rest Marat and come back strong in 2004!

DEBATE OF THE WEEK

With Ferrero, Federer and Roddick battling tooth and nail for the world number one spot, onthe most talented player of his generation will not even be present to defend his Paris Masters title. So just what is Marat Safin's problem?


Is it mental weakness, a lack of commitment or simply injuries that have kept him from fulfilling his true potential? Have your say!


List of messages

27/10/2003 - Dalia

People are too hard for Marat. I think every person would feel miserable if playing in pain. Safin needs time to recover and then he'll show all his abilities.

27/10/2003 - Come on 'Me' - that's what sport is about!

That's the nature of being a sports fan!! Of course, none of us can actually know what exactly is wrong with him. I doubt even he does, but because we enjoy taking about sport it's fun for people to give their different theories on the issue. Maybe everybody here is wrong, maybe not, but if you take the debate and speculation out of sport, then you make it very boring!

27/10/2003 - Pasha

all of the ani safin fans, guys u are pathetic, HE WILL BE BACK and when he will he will be the dam best player on the court! and if not his temper he woldnt be so exited to watch

27/10/2003 - Luana

People are so quick to critise him... that's unfair... Tennis is a very demanding sport and just who plays can figure it out.... imagine for the proffis...Safin will be back for sure! But it takes a while... just have a look at 3 x RG champion and former number one Kuerten... he was on the top for such a long time, then had this injury, then surgery, and now, slowly he's finding his game... Of course it's hard to handle the "free falls" on the ranking, but takes some time. Many yonger players are showing up but not many of them have gifted us with so brillinat shots like Safin...

27/10/2003 - DEFT

I just don't see the interest, the rage in Marath Safin's eyes.. it seems to me, that he has to bring back "The Eyes Of Tiger" ....

27/10/2003 - Kendedes,Belgium

I think the guy should realize,that only talent is not enought to stay in the front of man tennis at this moment,With all the guy play very well and can beat each other,especially inside top 100, he have to work hard to be the best,not only depend on his tallent and come to any tournament to play and hope can win the match.I think ,this is the time for him to be more proff,take more serious coach to help him out,he need to be handle by Proff,and have to follow all the rule to come back to be the best

27/10/2003 - Me

People never cease to amaze me!!!! Come on! You haven't even seen the guy in real life and you pretend to know the roots of all his physical and mental problems! Hilarious. You aren't tennis experts or doctors... hell, most of you don't even play tennis but you ALL think it's "oh so obvious" that he is weak or lacks commitment or is too lazy or "the game just doesn't interest him anymore...". Please! I'm just so sick of hearing "Safin doesn't do that..." or "Safin should do this...". As soon as a player gets injured or if he isn't as consistent as concrete everybody starts "debating" and pointing fingers and it's all begining to sound a bit like a broken record, really!

27/10/2003 - Mad Max from Russia

Safiin,like a Kafelnikov-it is a real russian hero,but now he has any problems with own health,and 2-3 month later he will return to the first 10.

27/10/2003 - NYC

I don't think it is fair to criticise Safin of being lazy or mentally weak. He has one of the supreme talents in the game, and could beat all of the best players on the scene. However, he has had a very long injury, which has dented his confidence. If he starts of the new season injury free and wins a couple of matches to boost his confidence, we might well see the Safin we all expect to see

27/10/2003 - Puschkin

When he is inspired, it is tennis at its best: power, incredible acceleration and also subtelety, although he is hardly given credit for the latter. In addition, he shows his emotions on and off the court. You are either with him or against him, there is no middle ground. I belong to the first group and that's why I miss him on the tour. I can imagine that he experiences his darkest hours as a tennis player painfully doubting his capabilities and his future. If he manages to get through this - ideally with the help of a professional coach - he will be a better player than before and a real threat to those fighting for the number one spot right now. If he doesn't he will be remembered as the eternal talent. The choice is his and I wish him all the best in persiung the option which would bring him fully back to the tour.

27/10/2003 - From Holland

I don't think anybody here can say anything about what's wrong with safin. The one thing you can say.. is that it's very hard to come back after a long-time injury.

27/10/2003 - DesertRose

He has it all, the skills, etc...But the problem is in his head, ofcourse he's injured, but that's not it, at least not all of it. As a pro tennisplayer, the only thing or even the most important thing on your mind, should be tennis. That's just not the case with Marat. I'm not saying he's lost his ineterest, but it's close. Just give him time, you'll see...

27/10/2003 - Simply

It is simply connected with injures. Could you realize the level of competition and you can undrestand how important to get good fitness. Other suggestions seem extra sensible and it is strange sound from Safin's antifuns. Exactly.

27/10/2003 - just me

I think his problem is that he thinks too high of himself apparently which of course doesn't help him to improve his tennis. Also he is quite ignorant and foolish..... Shame really but then it's his choice. Full stop!

27/10/2003 - Pera Srbin

I think that he is week and laisy.He should train more and give more of him self when he plays.He`s plays are too pathetic!!But i hope that one of worlds best will be back!! Zivela Srbija!!

27/10/2003 - Russia

the man needs time to recover from injuries, when he got injured in australia he did not think it was serious so he played a couple of more games that aggravated the extend of the injuries hence now he needs more time to recover.

27/10/2003 - skachhy

the only problem that Safin is having is his temprament and also his unwillingness to fight. Look at Agassi, Andre Agassi had to play in challenger tournaments despite being a former Grand Slam champion but his will to fight got him back at the top and this will is missing in Safin.

27/10/2003 - Br@vo

He is one of the worlds best tennis players or at least on of the worlds greatest tallents.Give him more time, I think he`ll be back.Big time!!

27/10/2003 - Dogck

I think Safin needs is more time, and less pressure. Capriati took forever to come back, but when she did, wow

27/10/2003 - Safin is a fool

He's a baby. He's mentally weak, and quits as soon as he hits trouble. Every great champion has to overcome challenges and problems, but Safin can't be bothered. he wants instant success, and when he doesn't get it he pretends to be injured. Pathetic.

27/10/2003 - wilander

it's all about idealism

Marat Safin - always the one and only

Re: Marat news and articles

The majority supports Marat and this is really good. He is a gifted player and just need to recover his confidence and best game. It takes time. Patience is necessary. Soon (I hope!) or latter he will overcome this bad moment.
I just think he had an unlucky year. Let's wait for 2004. I'm sure it will be a great year for him and for us, of course. Vamos Marat!!!!!

Re: Re: Marat news and articles

i agree Lilly!

And there are always some fools, who dont have a clue what they are talking about but yes most are pro - Marat and want to see him back at the top of Tennis

here are more messages:

27/10/2003 - Srbenda

What does that mean, tzare?! se strinjam s tabo?! Ajde care pisi!!!Jebo vas ja sve u usta!! SRBENDA ZIVELA SRBIJA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

27/10/2003 - Lizuuu

Oh, one more thing! Whatching Marat against Vicente I can say that Marat was fighting till the last point. Everyone could see his will to play and win. However he was just desperate at the end. Everything was going wrong. That is his mental unstableness. But he was strong enough not to show his pain, great respect for this! Good luck next season!!!

27/10/2003 - eternal Koubi

Just give him some time to recover well, he needs also to be more persistent and hard worker

27/10/2003 - SPB_Open

I guess we've been the latest spectators of Marat playing on the court. What can I say...He trained just an hour per day and everytime something was wrong with his feet, hand, back...I believe that he felt pain. This means that he couldn't play prorerly. Sometimes I have a feeling that he does what he wants but not what he needs to. Thus he NEEDS a proper COACH! Marat! Find yourself a mature and professional coach! And you'll be back next season! C'mon! Dont' waste your time giggling with Denis! Do what you can do best! We believe in you! Piterburg s toboy!

27/10/2003 - from croatia

How can you say that he is pretending to be injured.That is saw stupid.Tennis is on high level and averyone can beat averyone.Safin was injured couple months and you can not expect him that he will come back and starting to win tournements like nothing happend.Next year in Melburn Safin will be wreal Safin

27/10/2003 - Fupi

The hardest person on Marat Safin is himself. I think if he finds someone who can make him see what a great player he is and to convert his anger at himself into a winning anger - he will be No.1 for sure. He needs to take some smiling lessons from Guga!!

27/10/2003 - just another Safin fan

Se strinjam s tabo, Srbenda!

27/10/2003 - just another Safin fan

I surely hope Marat's gonna come back soon, cuz I miss watching him play & win! Though I'm sure about one thing: When he comes back, he'll be better than ever!

27/10/2003 - Srbenda

Jebo vas ja sve pustite coveka da igra tenis!!Koji vam je kurac?A sad malo engleski: Marat is one of the best players in this game and live the guy alone! He will be back!!!!!!!!

27/10/2003 - marat safin

thank u all my fans. i appreciate what u have said and damn right pasha your right ill be back!!! better than ever and ill beat lleyton,federer,roddick and co. just wait and see

27/10/2003 - rudy

he got success a bit too early, then with no injuries he lost his position of one of the best in tennis, he needs discipline and a lot of hard work, the tour is very competitive and if you want to be in the top 10 you have to work hard, anybody can slip down the rankings and many did, but he wants to do this as a profession and above all likes it, which not everybody has, he has to work hard and to forget that he is so talented, many are.

27/10/2003 - Serik

neither of all: mental weakness, lack of com or injures. He was the best once: Ferrero was a boy he used to beat just for fun. With this kind of attitude after being injured, it is hard to motivate yourself and practice hard. To prove what? No 1? - he used to be one once. Finance needs? The humans by nature are lazy and if you don't have strong motivation you wont be No 1 again.

27/10/2003 - Kishinev-Klaipeda

Marat definitely is a huge talent, I would dare to say that he is the best from his generation. It is impossible not to remember his outstanding performance at US Open 2000, where in the final Pistol Pete himself had to say "Marat is da best!". I really hope that he will be back. However, all russian tennis players (males) have problems with stability, remember Kafelnikov, Youzhny, Chesnokov. I don't know what is the problem with them. Maybe something cultural? SOmetimes they waste their precious talents. Marat please don't waste it!! Next year you wil age 24, there is no time left to be wasted. You are the best!! Moldavija i Litva s toboi!!

27/10/2003 - tTen

Marat Safin is not particularly known for his mental fortitude, but to say that he is unmotivated or has no desire to play tennis is truly rubbish! Were he not appreciative of his talent and the sport, he would not be as consistent as he has been, barring injuries. Number 2/3 in the world is quite an accomplishment. It requires work and drive. Of course, if Lady Luck will finally show pity on Marat, I have no doubt he'll be at the top, where his talent and must inevitably lead him. Marat is not dumb, and hopefully this injury timeout will only serve to reiterate how significant it is to capitalize on talent and time.

27/10/2003 - kuba

Maybe it's that mental weakness helps him to feel injuiry stronger than it really is!!!!!!!!!! One of the biggest talents in tennis history could be now far away from coming back on court, but can be close as well. If it's a mental problem there must be someone who will get Marat 'back on feet', or maybe he'll will do it himself. I wish him that! GO MARAT WE"RE WAITING FOR YOU!!!

27/10/2003 - Matty

Marat will be back no matter what! His injury at the beginning of the year made it one of his least memorable years in tennis. He'll bounce back at the Aussie Open next January; no doubt; and rise into the top 10 again if he competes in ATP tournaments regularly. He's one of the best talents in the game which will not be wasted... he's still young, just like Ferrero, Roddick and Federer; so he'll get his chance again!

27/10/2003 - hampion/poland/

marat safin is surely one of the most talented guys on tour,the rest of the pack should only be scared of his anticipated comeback.but what he needs is more time. and what he gets is all the pressure being put,maybe he isn`t one of those who care too much about the opinions and expectations but it gets to him to some extent surely.so be patient all the true fans of the game of tennis,the game that misses safin so much now.i`m sure he`ll be back to tackle the top prizes again.

27/10/2003 - bouzou

marat is the best and he'll be back stronger than ever

27/10/2003 - Viva

Oh My god, I hope u ll be ok! I love u, I love ur tennis!!

We on the Marat Safin messageboard have never given, up on this guy, nor have we ever figured him out. That's part of his attraction, his charisma, and those who ciriticize him often do so out of frustration. I don't know what's in his head and it doesn't matter. All I wish is that he's injury free, gets himself back into great shape, and is able to once again play his brilliant tennis on a consisent basis. Davai Marat.

feel free to write a message everyone (i will maybe also)

28/10/2003 - ROVSHAN

IT REALLY PISSES ME OF SEEING ALL THIS GOOD COMMENTS ABOUT MARAT SAFIN. YOU PEOPLE SAY HE NEEDS MORE TIME? WHAT MORE TIME, HE IS ALREADY 23. LOOK AT THE OTHER PLAYERS LIKE FERREO, FEDERE, AND RODDICK. THEY ARE ALSO YOUNG LIKE MARAT AND EVEN YOUNGER BUT ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD NOW. ALSO I WOULD SUGGEST THAT ANYBODY WHO CALLS SAFIN OR ANY OTHER TENNIS PLAYER THE BEST IS SIMPLY STUPID, BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE BEST PLAYER AND HE IS THE GRATEST(PETE SAMPRAS). NO ONE CAN MATCH HIM AND WHEN SAFIN BEAT HIM IN THE US OPEN HE WAS JUST LUCKY. SO WHEN YOU PEOPLE SAY THAT HE IS THE BEST AND HE NEEDS MORE TIME PLEASE THINK TWICE. YOU CAN WRITE TO ME ON raul_madrid178@hotmail.com

28/10/2003 - molecule man

I am sure Marat will be back next year and when he fullfills his potential, nobody can touch him. Then only Federer at his top can be a threat to him. I can see that Marat and Roger being number 1 and 2. Good luck next year

28/10/2003 - Zhan

Marat simply needs more time. Be patient, he will be soon number one. I can bet he will win Australian Open 2004!!! Same time what's happening around with other guys (Roddick et al), proves that player's success also depends on the coach's talent! Maryann, thanks for nice words about Marat. I am the strongest fun of Marat. Marat ALGA!!!!!!!!
