Hey Forum!

Prvyet forum!

This is my first post here. I've enjoyed reading posts for the last few weeks and all the interviews and photos you guys upload. Uber interessant! Unlike most of you, I'm a guy and I'm from Australia! Marat is my favourite player on the circuit atm and no doubt he is very attractive. Haha.

Anyway, I hope I can be right at home here. I'm going to upload video clips from Hopman Cup and Australian Open soon from Aussie TV coverage if anyone is interested?

Hope he wins the Aus. Open! Gooo Marat!

Gute Nacht :)

Vass you're the only guy who talks to us on a regular basis and it's cool that our drooling and girl talk doesn't scare you away ;)

hi Will! I'm Hanneke and I'm pretty new here too and I tell you, it's one of the best places to talk about Marat-all his aspects and mainly tennis and personality...

01-21-2004, 06:51 PM
Hi Will! Marat has a few male fans around the internet - Vass (obviously!) also Jim (french), Jojo (Thai) & Rivulet (Chinese) so you're not alone! :D

Hey everyone :)

I put some clips up on my site: The Safin Lounge (Hehe)


ATM, Hopman Cup clips are in the process of uploading, so they probably won't be available for another 2 hours I think. Enjoy.. (hope they work =S)

01-22-2004, 07:03 AM
OH MY GOD!!! I love you!!! I haven't seen everything yet, but you just made the day of a girl who doesn't get to see a whole lot of Marat!!! thank you for the highlights of his match!

01-22-2004, 08:09 AM
That's just great Will! Did you put it on Marat's site ring yet? http://pub32.bravenet.com/sitering/show.php?usernum=2740059598

By the way, how did you convert the video onto the computer?

01-22-2004, 11:51 AM
WOW! Thanks a LOT Will :D That is amazing. Love all the videos.

:lol: "no not yet" LOL!

01-22-2004, 12:34 PM
Thanks Will! :)

01-22-2004, 02:22 PM
Will why don't some vids work?

01-22-2004, 05:19 PM
Thank you so much Will ..your web site is soooooooo cool! Congrats! I had so much fun watching those videos thank you !

01-22-2004, 05:48 PM
yeah the following don't work:
an odd splat
breaking a racket
some odd arm action

just informing you, otherwise you've done a great job!

jeez, fantastic (well, not really) to see that AOfinal speech again... it's like a standup comedian routine!!

01-22-2004, 07:55 PM
i'm a bit late but...

Hello and welcome aboard Will! Very nice to have you here.
Terrific job on the site. Congrats! :D

01-23-2004, 03:57 AM
I think the videos on Safin Lounge were fixed. At least the racket breaking works. Thanks again there Will.
And Will, anychance you have highlights for the latest match? Certainly hope so.

01-23-2004, 04:03 AM
I love the "weird arm action"! :crazy: :p

01-23-2004, 07:37 AM
Thanks for the great reception. How encouraging :)

I fixed the clips this morning that didn't work. But I had to go out so I'm sorry I didn't post earlier! Australian TV only showed the last 10-15 minutes of the match! (What a cop out!!! Though its understandable because two Aussie women were playing at the same time.. I doubt the match will be replayed later too) so I only very little footage to select from. =/ They will be up in an hour.

01-23-2004, 08:34 AM
Just saw your site Will, great job! :yeah:

01-23-2004, 11:18 AM
Australian TV only showed the last 10-15 minutes of the match! (What a cop out!!! Though its understandable because two Aussie women were playing at the same time..

WILL! Finally, somebody who understands my predicament. I live in Australia and goddamn Channel 7 has been awful this week! They have showed at maximum 25 minutes of Marat's matches, at 12:05am-12:30am..lol. And today in the Martin match they showed the last two games! :(

But thankyou for the awesome clips & for your website :)

01-23-2004, 02:00 PM
