It's true, his manager is Israeli (Amit Naor), and Marat came to Israel to train with an Israeli (ex pro) tennis player who's name is Noam Bar, as well as with an Israeli tennis player who's name is Eyal Ran.
A friend of mine who saw Marat said he was in a very good mood here... :)
I hope he had fun here... :);)
I'll translate his answers to the questions he was asked by Israelis when they will be published:) ;) .

hi nicolas!!!! NICE AVATAR! thanks spikeys! so are Noam and Eyal the two players in the photo with marat? amit's the one with the back to the camera right?

You're welcome:). well the guy holding the racket and wearing a white shirt and red pants is Eyal Ran. and the guy with the Red shirt sitting on a chair next to Marat is Noam Bar.
(on the second picture, the guy standing without a shirt is Amit Naor, Marat's manager, and the guy with the red shirt is Noam Bar).
I attached some more pictures i found on this Israeli website. (www.tapuz.co.i;)

a girl that met Safin and saw him practice said this thing:
Marat was practicing with Noam Bar, when he suddenly said to Bar: "I will Kill you Bar!". A second later Marat missed his shot, and screamed: "I will kill myself!"...


He got really tand here Marat.. coz the sun is really strong here and you can get your skin burned really fast.. I think Marat got a bit burned... OUCH, that really hurts, trust me..

You're welcome.:).

Here's some more information I found on the Israeli websites.

Marat's girlfriend is not Israeli, she's a jewish american, and she came with Marat to Israel. Their visit was a private one (came for vacation, to travel in the south and centre of Israel, and to get some trainning). The manager of the hotel in which Marat and his girlfriend were, is a fan of Marat's and was so excited to meet Marat, that he gave him a special room with the view to the sea. Marat also got a special bed, considering the fact that his hight is 2meters.
I attached a picture of Marat and the manager of the hotel.

is this his second one or are there even more that I don't know about? from what I've seen of this one, it looks gross...a bit too big and black for my liking...I never thought he'd be one for getting stuff like this done to himself...

merle
07-30-2004, 03:15 PM
Yep, he has tattoos on his both arms now. I don't like them either.
