IT'S ALL IN THE GAME
Bad boy Safin a hit with the girls
No matter how cynical he was and how many racquets he smashed, Russian Marat Safin was still the most popular tennis player among the female fans at last week's Thailand Open.
The Russian's bad boy image seemed to get him even more popularity with the female audience. Screams and cheers echoed around the Impact Arena when he arrived on court and during his matches. Even tennis super model James Blake, who has appeared in magazines like People and Esquire and been on the Oprah show, did not seem to have as much support in the semi-final against the Russian.
Safin also discovered he has a big fan who has just been crowned Miss Thailand World first runner-up, Panassarom Koomkij or "Nicky". He was spotted asking for her number during the opening ceremony and after that she was always there in the crowd supporting him. - The Nation.
