two weeks ago he was in Kharkiv, Ukraine and spoke about founding his own tennis academy in Georgia.
I guess he is in Samarkand as a coach only
Safin commented on his photo on FB, "soon you won't fit in the screen"
I guess the chap will never play any tennis, even in Davis Cup
But hopefully he can teach some kids, like he did with Basilashvili, who was bought by Russia anyway (surprisingly not by Kazakhstan)
