Oh yes! Marat come back. It is so boring without you:rolleyes:

But ey...you know what?? Marat will probably play in Rotterdam next week again (its not absolutly sure, he is training in Moscow at the moment and he will make the decision few days before, if he can play or not ). Hope his wrist is fully ok till Monday !!
Marat, can`t wait to see you back :kiss:

i agree with you, Andy. The tour is so dull without Marat!

well, the good news is that Marat's wrist no longer bothers him and he's able to train again. He's in Moscow atm training with a well-known Russian trainer to get into top physcial condition. :) Can't wait to see him play again! :bounce:

GO MARAT!

Marat is scheduled to make his return in LA not RCA. He isn't looking to enter in any tournnaments earlier than LA.

Here is the latest from theguyfromrussia.com:

"Marat was in Monte carlo last week visiting his doctor, but things went well and he's back in Moscow now."

I would really love it when Marat would be back on tour. But I think we have to be patient, that he has time enough to recover well enough and that is back in top form. Then we can enjoy the best tennis of Marat.

XXL
09-11-2003, 10:55 AM
Absolutely fresh information (for some soothing): Marat probably will do without operation. Today a bandage from a wrist have removed and he on the sly started to train in Moscow. Is going to play somewhere (while not clear where) on the next week, but about terms of returning in ATR-round a little while speech does not go.
Can was and operation an ill hand better. Relapses are quite possible. However this my opinion.

Jessi

To me all the same, think that want. It is very a pity to me, but that that I write it really the truth. Itself Marat I do not know, but well I know the doctor which him examined recently. I shall be glad if Marat all can will play in SPBOpen, you see it is his favourite tournament. He any more will not play in Moscow it precisely, but on tournament will go, I am sure in it, so I hope him I shall see in the fast future.

Maybe its the angle of the pic but it looks like Maratski has put on some weight. :o

Shadow
09-18-2003, 05:05 PM
Well that pic is definetly not from Shanghai, or maybe i`m wrong and Shanghai has tourned into some grass tourney ;)

It is probably some old pic from Wimbledon.

And also, that pic was posted just a few hours after Marat arrived in Shanghai. I dont think he would practise that early ;)

maratgirl
09-18-2003, 06:20 PM
on TGFR they said that marat will arrive on saturday and that they made a mistake you can read it on her site of christine's messageboard so marat isn't in shanghai yet.

News from Marat's management:

20/9/03 Marat is pulling out of Shanghai and will return at Moscow instead.

I have no idea why he's pulled out but it was becoming clear Marat didn't really want to play Shanghai. I don't know if it's connected to his wrist or not.

:sad: Very sad news, but he maybe just wanted to stay directly in Moscow.

maratgirl
09-20-2003, 02:37 PM
