I wasnt there so I wouldnt know.

but It has something to do with the Mercedes S Class right guys ? ;)
Im not one to spread rumours so lets just leave it at : allegedly Marat said something he probably shouldnt have. If anyone wants to elaborate on that be my guest, im trying to pretend that that whole incident didnt happen ;)

oh and I wouldnt believe the reports issued by the British press, we all know how credible they are :rolleyes: Im not sure if Worthless got his facts straight either.

you can say there was an argument between Marat and Mal`s wife and Marat was very pissed.
But nobody can know what they said and if they were more backgrounds.

thanks,you're very kind.

Can you wait 3-6 months lol, the article is very old it'll take me a while to dig it up, not that long but a few days.
I have no idea if that actually happened or not, but Marat was fined by the ATP so something went wrong, they dont just fine players for crashing their cars right?

From CNNSI.Com

Can you confirm what the British press have been reporting regarding a falling out between ATP sponsor Mercedes Benz and Marat Safin? Apparently, he totaled his loaner car in Miami, claimed someone else was driving it and then chewed out the tour organizers when they refused to replace the car. After that, Mercedes Benz allegedly said they want nothing further to do with Safin. Does the ATP fine players for this sort of behavior?
--Connie Nielsen, N.Y.

Just to set the record straight: Safin dinged up (hardly totaled) the C-Class Benz that he was given to drive during the tournament. He then had his coach ask for an S-Class. When the Mercedes reps saw the minor damage, they effectively said. "S-class? You'll get no class." Safin then allegedly suggested that the Mercedes rep perform a sex act on him. (To compound his boorishness, the Mercedes rep just so happened to be Mal Washington's pregnant wife. D-ohhhh.) The Tour fined Safin $5,000, which he'll be able to find behind the cushions in his couch.
