Marat wont play at the USOpen!!!!!

"I am sorry everyone but Marat is withdrawing from the US Open.
Please read the news on the Home Page.
Despite his best efforts, he has had to admit that his knee is not ready.
So we will just have to keep supporting him and hoping he will be fully fit very soon.
The Us Open will not feel the same.
webby"

28.08.05
Regrettably we have to announce that Marat is withdrawing from the US Open. Although Marat wanted more than anything to play and has tried whatever he could to be ready, as a professional tennis player he has had to admit that his body is saying it is too soon. So he has made the decision after discussions with all those around him. He is not depressed because he realises this is the right thing to do. He will return to Italy to continue treatment at the Isokinetic and ensure that his knee is fully recovered. His one regret is that he is disappointing his fans who wanted to see him play. It is not known how long he will be out but we will keep you informed. This time he will make sure he does not rush into returning. Marat still wants to play his tennis and he will be back. As his fans he needs your support more than ever.
Peace

For all those who might feel that we were giving the wrong impression, please note this was because Marat himself was saying he was fine. Marat has to make his own decisions and we have to abide by them. As with if anyone is ill, the medical people always tell you "He'll be fine!" We were always hopeful but in the end one's body is the one that makes the final decision

Dmitrieva said at the start of the live coverage that they have to bring the sad news first hand that Marat withdrew and WILL BE OUT FOR AT LEAST 6 WEEKS which means no DC semi and.... :bigcry: :crying2: Everything else she said we know - that he will go back to Italy to continue the rehab.

Mashenka, I didn't hear it. In fact I can't stand even the view of tennis court now :o I hope I'll get over it soon and will be able to enjoy tennis.
6 weeks is not that bad after all :sad: As for DC...well I can't say I'm too much heartbroken about it.

I'm getting nostalgic guys... :sad:

I re-read an old interview, but it could be a recent one :(



St Petersburg Times (October 2003)
Marina Skibina translated by Igor Oulianov

Interview by Marina Skibina for the St Petersburg Times



J : Hi Mr Safin! It's been quite a while since we've last seen you on a tennis court. You had to stop playing for a few months... because of an injured wrist, now that you're back, how do you feel ?

MS : I feel better... I hope that i'll find my game very soon. My wrist is still a bit sore, but I'm much better now! But when you come back its always difficult.. the other guys, they are playing so fast... They haven't been granted a six month break! (laughing)

J: Do you have any explanation about the cause of this injury ?

MS : In my opinion, it is because of the end of last season, I had to play too many matches : I won in Paris twice : Bercy and the Davis Cup.. had too little time to rest before the beginning of this season.. before the Australian tournaments... you know, that's really hard to keep the pace up.... When you see players like Ferrero thinking of skipping the Australian Open because of the Davis Cup....


J: Do you find it hard to come back like that ? Is it the first time for you to come back after a so long and serious injury ?

MS: Of course it is difficult! I couldn't use my left wrist for a few months... I couldn't play tennis at all, tried new sports… I wanted to try roller-skating or go ice-skating but I was told that it wasn't really careful for my wrist!! (laughing)

J : It looks as if you had fun though!!! What else have you done during all this "free time" ?

MS : I travelled a bit, went fishing, went to the movies, watched my Simpsons DVDs, spent time with my family and my friends. And I'm really proud of my little sis' who has won a tourney this year... and as we have a kind of tradition between the two of us, I gave her a little present : a little black and white cat called Tolstoi... but as she travels a lot now... he is to stay in Moscow with our Dad...

J: Are you still coached by Denis Golovanov ?

MS : "coach" isn’t the proper word, he is more a friend who travels and practises with me, and he doesn’t help me only for tennis, he sometimes helped me cooking!!! I'm sure he'd be an excellent cook !!!! (laughing)

J : You'll soon have to defend your title in Bercy, are you worried about that ?

MS : Worried? Why would I be worried ? you know, I'm 23.... I'm living on my passion, I'm happy in life.. I'm happy to play again! and what a pleasure to go to Paris! I love the atmosphere, I love Bercy, I have always been lucky there and the fans are great!!

J: Let me wish you good luck for Bercy and the rest of the season!
MS : Thank you!

Australian Open champion Safin to spearhead Japan Open

TOKYO: Australian Open champion Marat Safin will make his debut appearance here next month to spearhead the $860,000 Japan Open tennis tournament, organisers said on Thursday. Safin’s main rivals will be an Argentinian trio of Gaston Gaudio, Mariano Puerta and David Nalbandian. Britain’s Tim Henman will also take part for the first time since 1998 in the hard-court event from October 3 to 9. Other prominent players include last year’s champion and finalist, Jiri Novak of the Czech Republic and American Taylor Dent, and Asia’s number one Paradorn Srichaphan of Thailand. Former Japan Open winners Nicolas Kiefer of Germany and Kenneth Carlsen of Denmark will also come back, vying for the top prize of $118,000. Vera Zvonareva of Russia will lead the women’s field with Japan’s Shinobu Asagoe and Ai Sugiyama, Tatiana Golovin of France, Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic and India’s rising star Sania Mirza. afp

For info, tournament start on October 3rd

04.09.05 Marat Update
To quote a certain PC Advert " Change of Plan".
Marat did not go back to Bologna - instead he consulted with Dr. Feder in New York whose opinion he respects and on his recommendation Marat is now in Frankfurt Germany where tomorrow Monday he has an appointment with Dr. Heinz Lohrer at the Sports Medicine Institute. Dr. Lohrer has presented papers on Radial Shockwave Therapy for the treatment of "Jumpers Knee" and achilles tendonitis. After his consultation we will know more about what has to be done for Marat's knee but it is anticipated Marat will spend at least 2 weeks in Frankfurt. Marat is determined to do everything possible to get his knee back in good working order.

09.09.05 Marat Update
Marat had his consultation with Dr Lohrer on Monday in Frankfurt and his first session of treatment. He then went to Moscow to attend the funeral on Wednesday 07/09 of his friend Leonid Nureshenko who died tragically on Saturday in a motorbike accident. Understandably Marat was very upset by the death of his friend and as he has been away from home so much lately, felt he wanted to stay near to family and friends. It has been established that the same treatment is available in Moscow so Marat is happy that he can stay at home and continue his treatment. The course covers 5 hours a day of Physio, shockwave treatment, gym and massage and will last 5 weeks.
Therefore it is anticipated that all being well, Marat will be fit for the Japan Open in Tokyo on 3rd October.
We will keep you informed of developments. This is a very hard time for Marat dealing with the death of a close friend and his injury and knowing he has so many points to defend. So keep him in your thoughts - he needs all the love and support of his fans to help him through this difficult time.

Marat is so determined to get his knee better and play again - he is working on it everyday from 8am to 12noon. Now for those who know Marat well - that is quite something! Marat does not like getting up early and even his management are amazed at his dedication!


There is no news about the daviscup ... I don't get it why the austrian site (www.sport1.at) knows that he retired ... :confused:

Russia in Safin Davis Cup loss

Russia will be without injured Australian Open champion Marat Safin for this month's Davis Cup semi-final against Croatia, the country's tennis chief said on Tuesday. "Safin is still not fully recovered from his knee injury and he is not on the team," Shamil Tarpishchev told Reuters.

"It'll be at least another month and a half before he can resume playing."

Safin has been troubled with a ligament tear in his left knee since losing in the third round of Wimbledon.

The injury forced him out of Russia's 3-2 Davis Cup quarter-final win over France in July, as well as the U.S. Open.

"Even with Safin on the team, we would have problems overcoming a formidable Croatian side on their home turf, but without him it makes our task twice as tough," Tarpishchev said.

"But we won't go out without a fight."

In Safin's absence, Tarpishchev has called up Davis Cup newcomer Dmitry Tursunov along with world number seven Nikolay Davydenko, 2002 Davis Cup hero Mikhail Youzhny and Igor Andreev.

Davydenko was Russia's hero in July when he led the Davis Cup team to a come-from-behind victory over France to reach the last four for the first time since 2002.

Despite nursing a painful wrist injury, the Ukraine-born and Germany-based Davydenko won both his singles matches to save the day for his adopted country.

The semi-final will be played at an indoor arena in Split from September 23 to 25.

18.09.05 Marat is progressing well with his treatment - still working early every day but it is too soon to say when he will be ready.
With regards to the Japan Open - officially Marat has not withdrawn but as there is no guarantee that he will be able to play, it was felt that the tournament director should be allowed to negotiate for another player in case of Marat not being ready to play.So this is what his management team have told the director of the tournament. Should Marat be ready then he will play. Unfortunately with the injury it is not possible to give any definite answers at this time.
He definitely is not playing the Thai Open and a press release was made this weekend about this.
With regards to the Thai Airways advert, he will travel to Bangkok at some stage for a weekend to complete the advert/video.
At this stage it is not anticipated that Marat will travel to Split to support the DC team but with Marat anything could change.

OK, it's not really news, but :shrug: :lol: ... today was the launch of the 2006 Australian Open in Melbourne, amongst other things they said that they are revamping the complex and building the Australian Open Champions Walk ... and yes, here's our man :yeah: ...

Also, Hewitt won't be playing at 2006 Hopman Cup, so organisers are trying even harder to secure the likes of Safin etc ... so Marat, http://bestsmileys.com/beging/1.gifhttp://bestsmileys.com/beging/1.gifhttp://bestsmileys.com/beging/1.gif ... OK, enough begging!

Im sooo clueless about tennis these days :o

you guys are right! Nole has his own forum!!!

Seeing as they're letting anyone and everyone with a fan or two have a forum i wonder if they'll let us have a KIMI forum ? ;)

he even has his own official site :p (and no, I wont say it looks better than Marat's :angel: :devil: )

He's my new #2 in sports. Beat Mika and Beckham on my list.

I shall go check it out, the only time ive seen nole play is against Marat, but I hear he's quite good. I need a new bandwagon to jump on....maybe nole will get lucky and i'll jump on his :devil:

Saumon
09-28-2005, 09:27 PM
I've havent really seen him play but I heard his game is quite similar to Marat's :D

Good kiara!

I've only seen nole play against Marat and it wasn't bad. Last bandwagon I jumped on was Gasquet I think. I'm getting old ;)

09-28-2005, 09:31 PM

Ilhame there is room on Verdasco's bandwagon :lick:

maratski
09-28-2005, 09:37 PM
The short hair version bandwagon then ;)

I saw him with Feli in Rotterdam and against Soderling at RG. Was nice...in doubles as well.

Kiara
09-28-2005, 09:42 PM
btw have you seen/heard of Heikki Kovalainen?

maratski
09-28-2005, 09:45 PM
I saw those races at the Stade de France a while ago. Don't remember his looks anymore, but he's another race talent.

Kiara
09-28-2005, 09:52 PM
Yeah he's a punk...he's not good looking but has enough attitude to make up for it. He's the current GP2 leader and test driving for Renault, and he mouthed off on finnish tv that he'll be replacing Fisi in 2006 :ras: :(

maratski
09-28-2005, 09:55 PM
I like Fisi!!! Finland sure has some great drivers. Mika is doing alright in DTM this year. He was in Rotterdam for some racing demonstrations last month, but I was in Morocco.

Kiara
09-28-2005, 10:22 PM
Gab, Nole's official website kicks ass! There are loads of pics of him with Ivanovic? Are they dating? He should date her, she's a babe. The facial hair makes him look better and he has a rather nice smile.

NEWS!!!!!!

www.maratsafin.com


02.10.05 There is good news and bad news - depending on how you look at it.
The good news is the knee injury is progressing well - the bad news is that it has been decided that Marat will not play until the St. Petersburg Open followed by Bercy and then Shanghai Masters Cup. This will give him some practice before the end of the season to test out the knee and then he will start the new season of 2006 fully fit. At this stage it has not been confirmed which tournament he will start with in 2006 but it is anticipated he will start with a regular tournament rather than an exhibition match.
