02.10.05 There is good news and bad news - depending on how you look at it.

:rolleyes:

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.

No hopman cup? :confused: weird!

in the 3rd stage of that disease, which may resurface yeaaarrrsss after the initial infection, the dorsal root column (aka the stuff in your spine and brain) gets damaged. so you lose your proprioception (aka the ability of your brain to know where your legs are so it can control them) so you have to walk like...POPEYE!

Here's the link to the Sov Sport itw. Gotta get to work now so the proper translation will have to wait. Just one notice - he went to Kazan for the 1st time in his life and with his dad. Dad said MARAT drove all the way to Kazan - YES, they didn't fly there but drove by car (is it correct English?). :eek: :eek:
How about the bad knee pal? ;) :rolleyes:
They even showed a short clip about Marat's visit to Kazan on Russian TV sports news last night. He's a really really big celebrity. :) Coz that was all without big publicity of the trip beforehand, and it was a private visit, an invitation to Marat and his dad from the President of Tatarstan.
Oh, and of course he got presented a 5 litre bottle of VODKA before they left Kazan yesterday morning as you can maybe understand. :rolleyes: Do they REALLY think he's an alcoholic or what???? :rolleyes: That's Russia for you.
Have a nice day everyone! :wavey:

from Darry from safinator msgb

Marat with his father visited his historical land - Kazan. President of Tatarstan received Marat in his residence and rewarded him with medal "In remember of 1000 years of Kazan". I don`t remember how to post photos so inside is the link)))>> Also Marat said at the press conf that he attended hospital every day at 8 am so he hoped to start playing in the beginning of next season.

other news:
Sydney, Kooyong are courting Safin
Margie McDonald
October 07, 2005

A TUG-OF-WAR is developing between Sydney and Melbourne for one of the titans of the men's game - Australian Open champion Marat Safin.

The Kooyong classic and the Sydney International are chasing the Russian, who has always been popular with Australian crowds and beat Lleyton Hewitt to win his second Grand Slam in January.

"It is a hope and we have been talking to his management since before the French Open," Kooyong tournament director Colin Stubs said.

But like Sydney tournament director Craig Watson, Stubs knows Safin is a hard fish to land. Two weeks before this year's Kooyong classic Safin said he was coming, only to withdraw just days before the event.

At Wednesday's launch of the Sydney event, Watson also said he was eagerly seeking Safin to return. In his only Sydney appearance, the Russian reached the quarter-finals in 2003 before a wrist injury forced him to forfeit to eventual champion Hyung-Taik Lee of Korea.

Stubs has announced four of his certainties: world No.1 Roger Federer, No.4 Andy Roddick, No.8 Guillermo Coria and No.9 David Nalbandian. Andre Agassi, an eight-time veteran of Kooyong, is expected to confirm shortly.

Windows Media Recorder usually allows you to save videos that are blocked. Like all the videos on eurosport.com for instance. But it doesn't work with all (i tried on MTV.com and it really doesn't work :(). It didn't work with the ATP vignettes videos.

http://www.kp.ru/daily/23592/45356/

:wavey: everyone!

not really a full translation, but a summary:

- Marat went to his historical country, while recovering from injury
- he was driving the car all the way from Moscow
"Q: You have a bad knee, why you don't take care of it and hurt it driving?
A: Don't worry, I'm still young"
- he missed meeting his friend Ilya Kovalchyk (the hockey player), because Marat arrived there late, and Ilya has already flown to the USA, where his wife (?) gave birth to a girl. Marat congratulated him with SMS (couldn't reach him by phone).
- Marat can't stay longer in Kazan, because he needs to get back to Moscow for the treatment. He makes his own training program.
- "Q: Your long curls...is this an image change?
A: No. I'm just a boy. Sooner or later I will lose this hair. It will go down to the shoulders and the spine, then I'll get bald. You see the baldness of my dad?"
Q: It is a decease - to feel like a boy all the time...
A: But I am a boy. Biologically a person becomes a man at 40. And i"m still 25"


....and the famous lines about the vodka bottle :angel:

pretty much that's it...keep in mind that this is kp.ru ( the tabloid that really loves Marat). Anyone, feel free to correct/add me :)

have great week :hug:

It says that the girl, who Marat brought to the lingerie fashion review is Natasha. Nobody knows what's her job, but she's not a model. And according to the tabloid Marat asked the paparazzi not to make pics of them together. After the show they went to a disco with few other friends.

Irochka, I was watching PHM oaf on the online channel so I missed some stuff. :mad: :rolleyes: I try to come home for tomorrow's rerun. I saw the end bit about Marat but that's all BS. I mean all everyone knows is he is going to Paris to see how his knee will hold up. I think he himself hasn't decided if he's gonna play or not, it will depend on how his knee feels. We will know when he has made his mind up, our Mr Unpredictable. :wavey: I think it's very lucrative to try to defend the Paris title and get some nice cash in Shanghai and get some feel of the game if the knee's up to it. I am totally calm, wrong, I TRY to be calm about it. I don't expect anything (erm, that's what I tell myself) but I cannot help getting sooooooooooo nervous when Marat's on court. :rolleyes: OK, enough of my none-sense blabber for time being.

probably... but i remember that he said that he and yevgeny were sometimes practicing in rg during the BNP Paribas Masters in 2002 (probably because there are not enough courts in Bercy, I remember that last year players were coming back from there practice sessions very late :eek: )

I think Marat's probably seen enough "boobs & bums" during his *cough* rehab *cough* time in Moscow ...

hopefully his desire has been ingnited to get back on the court and create some magic ... he needs to start knuckling down now, test the knee, and depending on the outcome get the wheels in motion for a brilliant 2006 season ...

so Marat, enough 'pleasures of the flesh', put down the Vodka, tell the chickees to stop shakin' their wobbly bits in front of you, and let's get back down to business ... and Pete, it's time to get the whip out!

oh & if you don't come to Hopman I expect you to refund me for my tickets ... in person :aplot:

oh i know what pic you mean. They often publish the pic in Tennis Magazine, i like it :)
It's @ my bank too. I'm at the BNP yes, but no it wasn't because of tennis :p... although one could expect they would do some contests to win tennis tickets sometimes, for bercy, RG, DC or Fed Cup ties.... but no :( :sad: pffff

my best friend is doing in internship at Perrier headquarters, she couldn't get tickets but she got me loads of promotional stuff: tennis package invitation (just a lil racket and a ball, but that's nice :D), a hand towel that is the same color as RG official players towels :yippee:
too bad her internship ends in November.

From this week's edition of the Russian Hello magazine

The President's Special Guest

The famous tennis player Marat Safin came to Kazan by his own car having overcome hundreds of kilometres in one night. They say he was in a hurry for his friend's Ilya Kovalchuk's hockey match but due to an accident he came across on the road and hence a traffic jam he was late. Tatarstan President Mintimer Shaymiev invited Marat to Kazan. He was sorry Marat didn't make it to the 1000 years celebration but nonetheless he personally developed a visit plan for his guests. Motherland had a great impression on the tennis player but he didnt find enough words to describe it: "I don't like big loud words...more than that I hate them. I'll put it simply: I am very flattered to be here and all that" Marat told Hello that he came to Kazan with his Dad Mubin Safin "Dad tried to show me all the sightseeing places in Kazan, so I was inseparable with my photo camera". Safin was accompanied by tons of fans in the streets of Kazan and he gladly communicated with all of them. He even answered tricky questions, such as for example, why is he letting his hair grow? "I am a macho", Safin said, "I let it grow while I have this possibility. Who knows what's gonna happen next" Well here he obviously tries to play hard-to-get. He knows what's gonna happen next: he will get back on court after his knee treatment: "I go to the hospital at 8 am every day. I think I will slowly start playing next year"

here are the photos

20.10.05 Well as usual Marat has had a slight change of plan.
He visted Tver on the 19th together with Peter Lundgren to discuss ways of helping to further tennis in the Tverskoy region. Although Marat is the tennis player who has made it, he also wants to ensure that there will be a new tennis generation to continue the good work for Russia. This he is doing by helping the federations in various regions to progress.
Then although he is not playing in St. Petersburg, he is hoping to go there for an autograph session and at least be there for a short time for the local fans.
After that he goes to Paris early next week as he has certain promotion items to do for Adidas and also to practice. Whatever happens Marat is determined to try and play as he needs to get back on court. More than anything he wants to go to Shanghai and participate in the year end Masters Cup. It means a lot to him.
