Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

For me Marat is wonderful man (Gorgeous!) and a fantastic tennis player (the best!). But I'm a fan of Marat because of his strong personality. His intelligence, sense of humour and sincerity are remarkable. He's unique! As you said before, he's the whole package.

Omnia vincit amor

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

I choose the n° 5 !
Because if marat hadn't this personnality I don't think I will follow him as I'm doing now...But equality with tennis because without that I won't have know him and be his fan , then of course his look ( a great lil + for his female fans )
*sorry for the english !*

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

I also voted 5 > because of everything above - but his personality is the most important. I just love the man. Not only is Marat the most talented player in the game he is also the most intriguing personality. His interviews are becoming the stuff of legend.
Marat just has it ALL - talent, personality, looks, sense of humor, and charisma. He's just special and unique, period!

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

What if Marat had the personality of Roddick *shudder*, would you still want that booming serve and bh a la Rios? I think personality is very important.. i can't support someone who is a jerk no matter how good his game

Re: Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

Actually i agree with all of you He wouldnt be the same without his amazing talent and GAME, but he wouldnt be the same without his wonderful personality either. This all IS Marat and thats why we admire him!

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

I don't find andy a good player

I don't think I can love someone as much as Marat, but I do have the utmost respect for Sampras, and I kinda respect Andre a bit too . I still watched them sometimes

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

there you go.. you respect them but you're not a fan. Why? Because there is no emotional connection.. with Marat there is. We love the man as much as the player

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

There is some sort of emotional connection, but nobody's like Marat. Only JC comes close

I do love the man as much as the player

I quite like Andre, cause i like his game, but of course no one comes to Marat by far. The only 2 other players i had a more emotional connection to were Pat and Goran, but of course also not like Marat LOL. NO ONE!

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

JC is the complete opposite of Marat.. personality-wise. I find him really boring and uninteresting. HIs interviews are guaranteed to put one to sleep

JC? Please explain that emotional connection Personally i cant see any with him, cause he is not really a personality on the court imo.

Re: Why are you a fan of Marat?

I love his game and his determination. He was sweet and shy when I saw him for the first time, but now I see a spontanious and wonderful spaniard in him. He brings a smile on my face. He might not be as charismatic as Marat, but I love him too.
I was so nervous when he was two points away from winning RG!
