Re: Interesting tidbits from Brad's book

Wait if it was Marat then why didn't Brad edit his book?? He had more than enough times to make the change since Peter went to work with Marat in April. Maybe its not Marat then.

Potential No1, wasting talent, traveling with his buddy, not wanting to work with Brad, capable of saying: i don't want to be No1.... Not Marat? It's marat alright. Alll the guys who can be No1 have coaches or atleast don't have all of the above criteria.

Re: Interesting tidbits from Brad's book

Yes, bunk and penny, the book is as poorly written as it sounds which make Brad's way of talking even more annoying; but it's a quick read and I'm especially interested in behind-the-scenes stories of him working with Andre and Andy. I'll type up some more good stuff when I get the chance.

Ok, let's say Brad wasn't talking about Marat: then who else would it be? A player who doesn't want to be No. 1, is talented but underachieving, travels with his buddy. Um, how about.....MARDY?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Interesting tidbits from Brad's book

maybe he's talking about Roger that damn under acheiver he'll never be number 1 now. That's right keep traveling with your buddy!!

Of course it's Marat, does Brad need to spell it out for you? "This guy has real talent and his name ryhmes with Sarat Mafin"...lol..c'mon everyone knows Brad talked with Marat. Brad only talked with marquee players, i.e. ones with the talent. So think talent above the rest in todays tennis then X out 3 guys (Andy, Andre, and Roger)...wow..the only one left is Safin...duh....lol

Re: Interesting tidbits from Brad's book

Marat was stupid to turn him down. I still think Marat's a lost cause but we will see.

Re: Interesting tidbits from Brad's book

Sounds a lot like Marat. He's always talking about how happy he is with life with/without tennis

I think Safin has had a much better year than 2003 and I feel he will only improve in 2005!
