Re: Marat in Miami!

Marat time to beat everyone in the draw for one more time. It's time, it's been 1.5 years.

Hi I'm glad to be back.

Once again I hope all the best for Marat at this tournament.

Re: Marat in Miami!

I have a feeling that he'll meet someone big in the first 3 rounds. Hope I'm wrong. No I don't hope, I'm confident that the draw wouldn't matter as he'll pierce through it anyway. No kevlar*** saves from the bullet Marat is.


*** Kevlar- a material used in most bullet-proof vest manufactured around the world. Mostly used by the special forces in the armies, special counter-terrorism units of police, and in rare case on airplanes to protect varius aircraft components from flying debris. It can be used in conjunction with other durable materials, such as titaniumm which is often done to reduce weight. Those who carry a thicker layer of such attire (bomb experts, for example) for added protection usually carry less weapons and other gear with them, again to reduce weight. Those forces that need extra mobility usually wear light versions of Kevlar vest, as the material is very bulky- they rely on their professionalism and weaponry instead.

PS: Oops I forgot what I forgot that I was talking about Marat.

Re: Marat in Miami!

Well, it could've been better, but I'm sure Marat's not very angry at his fortune this time. Who do we see:
R2- Spadea or Blake-both strong opponents.
R3- Nalbandian (?) - very strong. but manageble
R4- Srichapham or Kuerten (unlikely?) - comparable to Nalbandian
Quarters- Agassi- does he need words?
I wouldn't predict further, but atleast there's no Federer in Marat's half.

Re: Marat in Miami!

So Nalbandian IS playing, good for him. But he's Marat's pigeon is he not? Then again thats not saying much since they havent played since 2002

Re: Marat in Miami!

Marat leads 4-0 in H2H, but yeah, David kinda improved since then. Plus those were on clay and carpet, not hard.
