loooooooooooooooooooooooool kiara , no dinara doesn't fired her mom , since the moscow tournament last year(and maybe before) they were looking for a new coach because rausa is not healthy enough to take care of her daughter but it seems that's she's always staying around dina : she's actualy in australia with her

Hi Helena! :wavey:
hi cris' !
I think it's not a question of luck right now , it wasn't serena williams or justine henin.....dina has to work work and work again & again !

Cris
01-08-2004, 10:42 AM
Of course, good luck and hard work are important.
She lost to Petrova who is good player and a strong opponent.
Was good to see her beating Conchita Martinez on 2nd round. Maybe Conchita is not the same player, but Dinara did a great job.

maratski
01-08-2004, 11:01 AM
Reaching the quarters in her first tourney of the year is good so I'm satisfied. It's not easy to beat Petrova, but I guess her game is there to do well in AO.

yep!!! i agree , and look at mark philippoussis and his father : they prove too that a parent-children relation can be good in the tennis tour...
That's always better than all the gossip stories from damir & jelena or mr williams :rolleyes:

From Trixy (General message board) Thanks trixy!

``I didn't get to see the Safin/Blake match yesterday, i wish i had cause it sounds like a cracker. I was at the womens qualifying at the adidas international. I talked a bit to Dinara Safina, she's such a jem!. She was so nice and she took time out to take pictures and sign autographs but maybe the fact that she won had something to do with that though.``

Dinara and Shaughnessy playing doubles??this is news to me....I hope they do well...I wouldve never thought of putting those two 2gether but good luck to them both...seems Dinara is on a roll this year...kinda like the other Safin we know ;) Davai Dinara....maybe it's coz she fired her mom :lol:....and :lol: Ilhame, I like that funky orange thing she's wearing atm..why cant adidas' "mens" dept get a clue??

maratski
01-11-2004, 07:24 PM
how come I missed the funky orange? :confused:

Dinara is already making a name herself, but I wish they would stop mentioning Marat in articles on her ;)

I'm telling you we need to invade either elite management or Adidas headquarters ;)

Kiara
01-11-2004, 07:38 PM
this one Ilhame...that's her trademark colour...she seems to think she looks good in it ;)...j/k. i like that actually it's a change from the blues and whites....
yeah we should invade 'didas hq...somehow I missed seeing Henman in the acid green though ;) how come they stick their ugly clothes on Marat??..maybe it's his punishment for tumbling down the rankings?...

It could be that they think it is dinara's official site.
A lot of the players offical sites are www. theirname.com, so it could be they just assumed it was her offical site, not just a fan site.

Marat speaks about Dinara :

AO 2004
Q: Your sister's playing here. She won this morning. Do you go, do
you see any of her matches? Do you talk to her about your tennis at
all or is it a very different..

Marat: Yeah but she has the coach and she has the mother. I mean the
coach, the mother is the mother, and they take care of her, outside
of the court, but she has a coach .. it's his job to explain to her
and improve her game. I'm just I'm also playing and I don't want to
be involved in these kind of things.. it's not the right thing to
do. You have to give the respect to the guy who is working with her,
right now so she will have to.. she will have to understand, and
realize what she needs for her tennis, and she has to start thinking
a little bit her way. And what she likes and what she wants and who
she wants to become. Because she's in a difficult age, I mean she's
gonna be 18 and she's really still young, and she has a lot of
things to improve, but improve by herself. She has to realize that
because, you cannot explain to the kid how she has to be and how she
wants...how.. what she has to do. She has to.. day by day and week
by week and then she will learn.

Q: You're her big brother and I'm sure she looks up to you...

Marat: Thank you.

Q: Do you give her any advice away from the court?

Marat: No, it's .. I leave everything on her. You have to make some
mistakes by yourself. It's better to make your mistake by yourself
than uh.. learning somebody's mistakes because it's difficult to
learn somebody's mistakes, until you realize that by yourself um..
what you need and what mistakes you've done. Then you realize what
you have to do. So, it's ok, it's ok if she's making a couple of
mistkes, no problem. Everybody does.

Q: True

Marat: (laughs)

Safina stepping out of the shadow
by Luke Buttigieg
Saturday, January 24, 2004


Having been only 14 when her older brother Marat Safin won the US Open in 2000, Dinara Safina could have been forgiven for feeling under pressure to match his results when she made her WTA Tour debut less than six months later.

But having emerged in recent times as one of the most exciting young talents in the women's game, Safina has shown that Marat is not the only member of the family blessed when it comes to tennis.

The 17-year-old already has two titles to her name - at Sopot (2002) and Palermo (2003) - and having also broken into the top 50 for the first time last year, she says she is happy carving out her own name in the sport.

"I am in my third year on the tour now, so it's not really a problem for me," she said when asked if Marat's success had placed any extra pressure on her. "In my first year things were difficult, but I'm fine with things now, I have no worries."

Having enjoyed her best Grand Slam result at last year's US Open - when she reached the fourth-round - Safina was unable to match that effort at the Australian Open, going down 6-2 6-1 to Belgian No.2 seed Kim Clijsters at Vodafone Arena on Saturday.

With Marat choosing to stay away rather than be a possible jinx, Safina admitted after the defeat that silly errors had played a big part, as she held her serve just once from seven attempts.

"I just didn't play my best today, I made too many easy mistakes and they cost me," Safina said. "I played OK for the first five games, but lost concentration after that.

"I'm happy with how I have played this week, last year I lost in the first round but this year it was in the third round. I've learned to play a bit better and to fight more since last year.

"Marat didn't come and watch me play, he said he would be too nervous to sit there," she added of her sibling, who is through to the fourth round after winning a five-set thriller against American Todd Martin on Friday. "He just said to me 'go and play your best'."

One of the new breed of Russian women taking the tour by storm these days, Safina said she and her fellow players have a lot to thank compatriot Anna Kournikova for, even if she never won a singles title before a chronic back injury forced her off the tour.

"She was a top 10 player, and made the semi-finals at Wimbledon, so I think she did a lot for the women's game," Safina said. "People come to watch our game now, but that wasn't always the case before."

Kournikova inspired new crop of stars
24 January 2004
By Julian Linden

MELBOURNE - She might have been lamthingyed for her lack of success on court but Anna Kournikova was no joke according to one of the wave of Russian women who followed her into the professional tennis ranks.

Kournikova did not win a WTA singles tournament during her eight years on the tour but Dinara Safina, whose brother Marat Safin won a U.S. Open title, said 22-year-old was the reason there are so many Russian girls playing tennis.

"A lot of players want to be like her," said Safina, one of 13 Russian women who were in the draw at the Australian Open. "Women's tennis, in Russia and around the world, is popular because of Kournikova."

Safina bristled at suggestions Kournikova did not fulfil her potential even though she made most of her fortune away from the court courtesy of being one of the most recognisable faces in the sport.

"She was in the semi-finals of Wimbledon and in the top 10," Safina growled. "So I think she did a lot for women's tennis.

"Now when there is a tournament on, people come to see women's matches when before they didn't come. It wasn't so popular, women's tennis."

Despite the huge Russian presence at Melbourne Park, just two made it to the fourth round and the country is still waiting for its first female grand slam champion.

Safina, who crashed out 6-2 6-1 to world number two Kim Clijsters on Saturday, however said it will eventually happen.

"We have good coaches now and they are helping us," she said "Every Russian girl is working so if she wins she really deserves it."
