hey! newbie here! :kiss: :crazy:

scenario:

you're at your local tennis club and you're hitting a few balls around. ''yes! that serve was perfect!'' you think to yourself :lol: when you go to pick up your ball, u notice a tall, handsome guy walk in with his friend -(who draws no attention to himself might i add :p), and who is it? duh! ..Marat Safin!

So..what do you do?



personally... :aplot: --> :hearts: --> :smooch: lol..nah..j/k..


(luv Safin n Ferrero!!)

I'm a shy person, and I would probably just go on with what I'm doing (haven't touched a tennis racket yet in my life so I wouldn't be doing that)
But no need to say where my eyes would be!

About what!? It's not like you have a lot of time to sit down and talk. I'm asking this seriusly, cooz I feel this or similar scenario happening sonn, like last year.

My aswer: I wouldn't call it a "duh", but I'll continue with tennis. Ofcourse I'll take a lot more longe breaks to look around, pretending to do something else.

after all...Ferrero met his gf at a tennis club..he jsut walked up to her cos he liked her.. erm!! wuld anyone just sit there and wait for Safin to walk over...? ...

Now this is scary, with the ball...

Kiara, I'm not a liar. There is a very big chance that it'll happen to me, and I wouldn't be surprized. I would be too shy to talk to him, I wouldn't be so inpolite as to just stare and I don't think I'll faint (never fainted in my life). The only thing left is continue playing.

Try to overcome your shyness Vass. Talk to him. You speak russian and I think that's an davantage.

:haha: Catsou

I also knew what you were planning to do to Marat, but wasn't around to post it ;)

Vass
02-19-2004, 11:11 AM
ok tournament security everywhere should be notified to keep one white (I assume it is white) woman in her 20s, named Cat, away from Mr. Safin. Or else a) Mrs. Zhukova wouldn't be happy b) this woman, Cat would be heart-broken c) Mrs. Zhukova (better know as Dasha and Darya in some circles) would not know anything, but something terrible is going to happen in the official player hotel, to be more precise: in the room of Mr. Safin.

Kiara
02-19-2004, 11:42 AM
lol Vass, there are other options apart from Staring and Fainting, I doubt anyone particularly if you're a fan would just keep on playing like nothings new...besides you might only get that one chance in your entire life time, TAKE IT!

LMAO :o

But don't call someone Mrs when she is a Miss, I hate it when people do that to me(well, the dutch equivalent of Mrs) when it's still totally clear I'm a girl (I hope). Just a little remark.

I though about that when I typed the post, but I think we can all agree that Marat wouldn't (knowingly) do that, right? (naughty girl!)

Here's a story for you - I met Safin at the Australian Open and I didn't recognise him until someone told me, two days later!

And JeLulia88 can vouch for me there!

Shadow
02-28-2004, 01:09 PM
LOL!

and how was the meeting?

Vass
02-28-2004, 01:42 PM
I would shout "Marat you've got a hundred footfoults alredy1" and them stop in the middle. That's what I did 40 minutes ago during his practice.

marat_
02-28-2004, 01:56 PM
I'd invite him over my place for a drink and then challenge him to a game of tennis. :p

I am still kicking myself! I was at one of Dinara's matches on the outside courts at this year's Aus Open, and me and my friend didn't really expect him to be there...

We looked at the sky and it looked like it was going to rain, so we decided to make a dash for Vodafone Arena. As we left our seats, this tall guy with a hat and huge sunnies (with another person) came to take them. Then I realised I had left my bottle under the seat so I started hitting the guy to get his attention. He turned around looking a bit stunned, and I asked him to get my bottle. And then he said something and I realised that he was foreign. I didn't think much of it at the time but as we were leaving, my friend (JeLulia88) started laughing and said, 'Er, what if that was Marat Safin?'

I didn't think she was serious - but then later, she spoke to one of her other friends and we found out that that guy WAS Marat Safin, and I almost KILLED MYSELF! LOL, it was the funniest thing and I can't believe I treated him like a commoner! Great memory, though.

Merle, the internet in the tennis club is realy expensive so I can't come everyday... My home internet is out only ones in a year but it OFCOURSE falls on the two weaks of live tennis I get. Anyway, I'll be writing a report now.

merle
03-01-2004, 03:36 PM

Oh he didn't say much - just like, 'Sorry, what was it you said....oh sure I'll get the bottle for you. There you go. No worries.' He just looked really stunned that I'd approached him - I didn't get it at first, but now I know!

The accent should have been a dead-giveaway. Geez, and I call myself a fan!

03-02-2004, 04:59 AM
