Is Marat Safin gay?

Come on people, it's obvious that his party-going, woman-chasing lifestyle is just a cover on his part to try and hide his true sexuality, fearful of the intolerance that he could receive on the ATP Tour... don't you think?

Absolutely.

All his posing with his shirt off..... all of that is just to draw in his gay fans. No actual heterosexual man would be caught dead with that line up of women who appeared to be found on the escort services pages. ;)

I buy mine pre-packaged myself, Fee. And just between you and me, I doubt this thread is going to develop into a serious discussion with which to while away the off-season. It is, however, a suitable companion piece to the "Who has the biggest dick?" and "Which player would you want to see naked and have sex with?" threads in terms of relevance and validity, wouldn't you say?

This has actually been discussed on another forum once and it was hilarious. It seems that Russians have these "strange" kisses ( I think they kiss on the mouth, whether you're male or female), and Marat got one from Shamil if I remember correctly ;)
Some fans will freak out if they see him with someone, no matter if that person should be male or female ;) and I'm not one of them :angel:

Yeah right - Schalken has almost twice as many titles as Novak despite being younger (and that includes titles on all surfaces and in all continents, BTW), and has been more consistently successful throughout his career whereas Novak's success only began last year. They've both made a Slam semifinal, but Schalken had to beat much tougher opposition to get there and has had better Slam results overall in reaching three other quarterfinals (has Novak ever made the quarters of any other Slam outside last year's AO?).

Did I take that a bit too seriously? Anyway you're right, Novak and Bjorkman is a much better discussion - Schalken clearly wins out against Novak.

Novak also used to be an elite doubles player, he was a top ten player last year, he made it to the masters.

He has a winning record over Schalken 4-1, and Jiri is better against top players.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup ground pecans
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups Milk Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions:


PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, ground pecans, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter and vegetable shortening in large mixer bowl on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract; beat until well combined. Gradually beat in as much flour mixture as possible. Stir in remaining flour mixture, morsels and nuts. (Recipe may be made ahead up to this point. If desired, cover and refrigerate dough for 4 hours or up to 3 days.) Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

I'm not denying that Novak's had greater peaks in his career than Schalken or that he is the more talented of the two, but I would suggest that Schalken has been consistently better over the same period since 1995 or thereabouts. He's pretty good in the doubles department as well, although he hasn't had the same success.

As for head to heads, they don't necessarily prove who is the better overall player - Santoro leads Safin 6-1, but consider them on their own and who has had the better career? There's an interesting "Nobody Triangle" going on at the moment with regard to the records between Novak, Schalken and Schuettler: Novak owns Schalken 4-1, but then Schalken owns Schuettler 4-1, and Schuettler is in the process of owning Novak 2-1 (both this year, and he bagelled Novak in the last set they played). Interesting, no?

This is the old Sabatini-Conchita Martinez discussion, Sabatini could beat Steffi and Monica, Conchita couldnt, but Conchita probably had the better career.


Ive never seen a Schalken Schuettler match, this owning really intrigues me.

Too late TF, the explanation is done. You're just intent on raking up bygone issues...

Sjengster
12-07-2003, 12:15 AM
Schalken's owning of Schuettler is very simple, really - he doesn't attack and give Schuettler a target, nor does he try to hit winners and thus make mistakes, but instead just keeps the ball in play and essentially rallies Schuettler into the ground. Schuettler gets sick of the endless baseline exchanges and instead tries to go for winners himself and ends up making the errors. On matchpoint at the US Open this year, he actually chip-charged Schalken's serve and came into the net, where he was easily passed - how often does Schuettler employ those tactics in matches? Novak has problems with Schuettler for exactly the same reason, he keeps trying to force the issue and ends up giving away tons of unforced errors.

Big difference between twat and twit. Not one that I'd care to explain on a public board though. My advice is to pick "twit."

Did Jiri not reach number 4 in the world before the Masters last year? I could be confused with the race standings, but I could have sworn that he broke the top 5. The more that I think about this, the more that I think I must be remembering the race standings...
