t'as raison

Il est grand, il est beau, il est fort, c’est la superstar du circuit ATP, Marat SAFIN jouera cette année à l’Open de Moselle. ET OUI ! Marat SAFIN s’adjuge une des trois invitations dans le tableau final et enflammera les Arènes dans une semaine. N’hésitez à venir admirer ce qui se fait de mieux sur la planète ATP. L’ex numéro 2 mondial (en 2000) posera bien son sac sur le central des Arènes après un US open satisfaisant.

i live near metz but i couldn't go there i'm so

Re: The "Marat, please don't mess up in Metz!" thread

Well i hope he won't decide not to go in Metz saying he's too tired... Marat french people want to see you !

"When I talk to myself on court, I say, ‘I love you, you're a good guy, but don't miss next time, OK?’” Marat Safin, 2004.
MARAT SAFIN US Open 2006: No, when you're 26, it's difficult to change. You can't teach the old dog to sit, huh? "

When you win, when you lose, when you smile or when you're mad : Marat you're still the best to watch.

"Just give yourself the opportunity, give yourself the chance. You have to
be happy with what you have achieved and don't take any notice if somebody
tells you that you should have achieved much more. You have achieved what
you have achieved. Nobody can take that away and you have a clear
conscience." Marat

if he manages to get to the finals tomorrow I think he'll not play next week. It's crazy flying from Europe to Thailand and then back and play again, every week. Even if you need points.

I know, further proof that if normal people feel the need to glorify him at 72, our obssessions doesn't seem that extreme.

Re: The "Marat, please don't mess up in Metz!" thread

Yep i would have said too that he wasn't going to Metz but the issue is that in my opinion he had more or less taken the engagement so i don't know if he can escape... Maybe going to go just for a round or saying that the knee hurts...

He has been No 1 in 2000 and 2002, and even in 2005 after the AO briefly, not a year-end No 1 though.
He was year-end No 2 in 2000 just behind Guga.
