I don't know if I can face a Marat-less Melbourne this January. The AO is my fave slam after Wimbles, but without Marat, the thrill is gone.
I know what you mean. I'm still watching AO because I like tennis and I have some other favorite players, but it's just less thrilling for me without Marat there.
But I don't think I will miss him when Wimbledon comes around.
