saw the match last night (of course i can't help but watch even though i know i'd just be disappointed) and my heart goes out to nastya :hug:
you can see while she's watching marat's match that she really wanted him to win (maybe because she knew that's their only chance, they don't really play doubles well...), my sister even commented that she looked like an anxious girlfriend (hehe why not? after this match i like nastya even more ;) )

goodluck to both of them in the AO... especially marat... maybe he just enjoyed the holidays too much... remember last time when he sacrificed his december to train so hard?? maybe he missed it so here's the result..
i really hope one week is enough to get him back in shape...

I heard that Marat wanted to date Nastya in monday or tuesday, but got denial. that's so funny. LOL. is Nastya the only girl could deny Marat? ;)

from a friend at Aussie. maybe she got it from the local newspaper or something. not to be too serious abt it. maybe just a rumor. LOL

I just realised I had live coverage of this all the time on satellite :banghead:


If this was anything but the hopman cup I'd be :rolleyes:ing all over the place but seriously this is an exho it's not remotely significative of his current form because 1. he's exhausted.The traveling and the heat would be just starting to take effect (the commentators were on about delayed jetlag, whatever that may be, marat had it lol) , plus he wasnt trying, he wasnt playing with half the intensity that he would normally play with, which is why he's so dismissive of his losses, it wasnt due to poor form, he played some brilliant shot intersperced with some lazy boneheaded shots, he just wasnt moving his legs, he was really tired and was sqautting between points and not bending his knees at all on the volleys, plus coria was being really bothersome and getting everything back. Nastya, watching Marat's singes fiasco looked like she was was going to explode into tears of rage.

The doubles was such a disaster, they started off well and were joking around,but things went downhill really fast, mostly thanks to Marat's lousy play he completely bailed on Anastasia. Nastya did well to hold them together, at the end they werent even looking at each other, there was absoloutely no communication between them. When Nastya did look at him she looked as if she wanted to eat his head :lol: Im sure she was hissing insults at him under her breath ;)

The argies complimented each other perfectly, Gisela especially was so confident she was hitting 125mph winners past Marat she even lobbed him a couple times :D

Nastya was returning from the deuce court and then half way through the first set after they got broken she switched to the ad court which was a good move for them bec her forehand returns were much better (the argies had a good whine about that ;) )and they broke back (only to get broken again :eyeroll:) The second set was a catastrophe. Both Marat and Nastya were probably wishing he hadnt come along ;) and they just deep sixed :(


.....even gisela was eating up his second serve :lol:

Kiara

I do hope the shirt he's wearing in doubles is going to be his AO outfit, it reminds me of the great shirts Adidas had in 2002 :hearts:

I can understand losing to Haas and Coria but if he loses 1-6 to Sanguinetti I might start putting :retard: signs next to his name again.

But I seriously do not think this should be taken as a sign of what to expect from him at the AO, this is just an exhibition, I doubt really cares, really.

Thanks for all the match reports. Marat needs some time to adjust to everything and I'm sure by the time AO starts he'll be fine. I don't mind how he plays in an exhibition tournament.

In unrelated news, Coria, Roger, Fat Dave, Tommy Ass and Juanca will come to Rotterdam!!!!!! There's one wc left and pray with me that Marat will ask for it!

Goddamn, am I really gonna have to be hoping my faves aren't gonna lose early instead of getting far in AO? [I like and concur with your sig, BelgianWaffle!]

:kiss:
I decided to keep it simple ;)
I really hope justine gets far in AO but I doubt it.. I'd just like to see a match, just to see her playing again and even that will probably not happen since I'll be in Gent to study and I don't have a tv there :sad: .


As for the OAF -> Try to predict the unpredictable :tape: Even thinking about it makes me tired ;)

I don't like Nastya ...but I feel "a little bit" sorry for her....just a little bit because last year she played badly too...no big deal...he was not angry against her...he just wanted to prepare AO.

BelgianWaffle
01-06-2005, 11:27 AM
Oaf doesn't really care about Hopman Cup ;)
He goes there because it's already in Australia, to get used to the heat, to make some money and because he's guaranteed three singles matches.
Hasn't he said that 'mixed doubles is not serious'? Playing with women, pffft ;)

Bibir
01-06-2005, 11:37 AM

But I like the excitement and anticipation running through my veines. I'm trying to speak to myself rationally and convince myself aiming for a 4th round would be great, but of course I'm hoping for waaaay more! I guess gaining confidence is the key.

Je kan proberen om in ÚÚn van de studentenhomes (bv in Stalhof bij Overpoort) naar de tvkamer te gaan, maar door de nachtuitzendingen zal het een probleem zijn om daar binnen te geraken. Ik deed dat 2-3 jaar geleden, dus da's geen recente info.

Marat is far from passing Pete's # of GS titles, Pete's record as #1, Federer's winning streak, maybe he wanted to set the record for ue, to be mentioned in the history books as well.

If that's the case he's stupid, cause he's already there since AO 2000 :o

Slow start for Marat this year.

hey guys, I went to the match last night and yes, he lost again. He fought hard in the first 2 sets, though he lost his temper a lot...but in the third set he was just soooo tired he couldn't do anything. And then in the mixed doubles he was joking around making everyone laugh. But I can't be angry with him cos he was so sweet haha. Hopefully he'll prepare well next week for the Aus Open in Melbourne. I have faith he'll do well there *crosses fingers*

I was positive yesterday but not today....after reading his words...he admitted he needs plenty of luck :ras:...he was lying when he said he was fine and I believed him :( ...now I think that one week is not enough!

if he's tired after two sets...I can imagine his physical state after 5 sets. :(

Hopefully he's not injuried like Poo and Tommy Hass. :)

a lil report from Jane from tgfr who was at the hopman cup

I have got a chance to talk to Peter and he didn't seem worried about Marat. I think maybe Peter knows that it's the way Marat is and he will be fine. I think Marat gets along very well with Peter. Peter told us that Marat really is a great guy. And then everybody asked him "Peter, what Walt is doing with u guys anyway?" and Peter was like "I dunno either. He just talks so much!"

But what really surprised me is that one guy working in the tournament told me that Marat said he quit drinking now ... how is that possible I dunno...

Good to know about Peter :)

Hi to everyone!

There is a saying in Russian, i don't know how to translate exactly, smth like

"It's no big deal to love me when I'm GOOD. You try to love me when I'm BAD"

Shadow

Yes thats a nice saying. I`m already trying/doing this since almost five years. ;)

nice impression of Peter. as most of us know by now, one has to be careful not reading too much in Marat's goofing around.
:lol: at the Walt comment. don't worry too much about his physical condition, Bea, Walt and Marat seem to have good memories of their work exactly a year ago. although it's always best to keep the amount of 5setters to a minimum, but try telling that to Marat :rolleyes: ;).

Hey, mer! :wavey: Welcome!
But we DO love Marat, no matter how he is....... good, bad, OAF, WAFFLE, Maratik......
Still, we reserve the right to make fun of him when he's too much of one thing.... ('waffle' this time..... ;) )

but in the third set he was just soooo tired he couldn't do anything. And then in the mixed doubles he was joking around making everyone laugh.
I'm a bit worried .why he look sooo tired?, I mean, he arrived to Perth some days ago already..is he sick or something?...And about his show in the mixed doubles, what kind of funny things he did??..tell us Emilita please :angel:

Marat arrived in Perth on Sunday afternoon, he played the Pro-am in the evening and then he had to play his first tie on Monday night. Sometimes jetlag takes a while to hit...I think this whole week he was just recovering from the travelling, New Year's eve etc so he couldn't play his best. If he had got here a few days earlier to aclimatise, it could have been better. Even Peter said Marat was had been tired the whole week but that he had confidence in him for Melbourne. I don't think he was sick or anything so there's no need to worry. He has a lot of preparation time before the Aus Open and I'm sure he'll be in good shape.

In the mixed doubles he was just basically fooling around...bouncing around, making funny faces, doing the eye formation really weirdly etc. And he said something to Nastya, I don't know what, but it made her laugh so much she couldn't even serve. It just looked like he was having a really great time even though he'd played badly in singles all week, which is great to see!

that's why they lost so? he was playing bad, and he was preventing her from serving :p
