thought the Tatar were caucasians? I'm SE asian and the only ones who looks like Marat in here are the mestizos (ppl with asian and spanish or western blood).

its raining cats and dogs here.........

Tatar isn't a Caucasians! Tatar in Russia is the mix of the Mongolian and the Scythians DNK (it's happend before 7 c AD, as was wrote in the historical documents).
That's why all tatar looks like a european (wide eyes, brown, but not black hairs, and the colore of the eyes sometimes not black). Marat is natural Tatar! He has green-brown eyes, small ears, brown curl hairs. He has hair on his legs (becouse it's usuall for the most of men in the world) and have very small hair on the arms and has nothing on the chest. It's ok for the Mongolian or Chinese and Tatar. Marat may be has more Scythian blood, then Mongolian. And also he has a very dicolored hair on the arms and chest becouse spent a lot of time under the sun.

I thought tatars usually have straight hair. I'm not a specialist of course :o

There are 2 types of Tatar: when in DNK more Scythians and when more Mongolian.
When Tatar has Mongolian more he looks like a President of Tatarstan (Mintimer Shaymiev i guess). The narrow eyes (or almost narrow), black eyes, straight hair. Usually they aren't tall.
When Scythian DNK predominate the Tatar looks like a Marat.
Ahh, I remeber, Dinara is typical Mongolian Tatar.

Maybe he's trying to transform himself into one (he already has the hair) :pAccording to the t-shirt, i'd say his hair is something halfway between rasta dreadlocks and a lion's mane. No surprise his hair has become such a mop if he gets inspiration from his shirts :tape:

I think that pic was taken at Kremlin Cup when Dinara won against Sharapova! And the girl is named Dana she sent her pix to maratoss.narod.ru!

He is handsome without doubt but he definitly wants to hide that these days :sad: !

Maybe he allready had a drink (or two or three or...) when that pic was taken! :p I mean, Dinara won against Maria so he had reason (not that he needs one :o )!

:confused: How is that possible. Today's camera's are so tiny that the lense and flash are practically next to each other. To avoid it I'd have to really look away from the camera (which doesn't make for a nice picture) :o

I met some man in my life who get high from the single living after they have a lot of girls.
And also IMHO he do everything just what HE want. May be he want to cut the hair but won't becouse everyone want it. May be when all will cry "ohh, don't cut, your hair beautifull" he'll cut. He's a principal man. Mmmm, no, he principal like boy.

Yeah, he looks old and I've noticed that some time ago, and you know what one reason is - they train in the sun and their skin is exposed to sun too much (and knowing Marat he's not using enough sunscreen) and their skin gets older faster than normal. I've noticed that with other players too.
Of course here it's only ONE reason. ;)

Who can love this parties? He don't go to the usuall club to hear the music he like and don't go there to meet the people he want to meet. Leto, First, Billionere - it's just a "pafos" you understand me. And could you imagine that all people there just want him to fuck (someone really fuck like the blond on some photos, someone fuck his mind, like paparazzi). And no one don't want Marat. They want to see the superstar, the olymic champion, the millionere etc.
But I think Marat is very sincere and this all very hard for such people. And also he can not do what he love to do. Tennis is all for Marat's life. When he can not training he is in depression.
I hope when he'll be on the court he will feel better. There no one can not disturb him.

It is only in 2003 they started to sell Masters Series shirts. But none with the 'new balls' campaign :shrug:

yuk! you mean his face with the current hair? :tape:
last year it was so funny cuz all the ads i could see in the metro had Federer on them, but once you were in Bercy it was Marat's kingdom :lol: i bought the shirt with the poster for bercy 2004 on it (with Marat :o)
In 2003 the shirts were beautiful. No players, but just the Masters Series logo on the front, and 'ATP Masters Series' on the back. I bought one too. And there was another with the logo on the front, and the list of the 9 cities hosting a Masters Seris on the back. My friend bought it. And after that, everytime i saw her wearing it i thought it loked better than mine, so i wanted to buy it in 2004, but they had none this time...
I have to buy something everytime i go to a tournament. I should see a doctor maybe :rolleyes: :o :p

I kinda like that sort of languages. Latin has it too.. by changing the noun case (nominative, accusative etc) you can give a whole new meaning to a word. For me that's the beauty of Latin. I think it's a very subtle language.

I have a lot of foreign friends and a lot of them when they describe the way they hear the Russian language when I talk is very similar the way we Russians hear German...really strong and no offense to Germans sometimes it reminds me of barking....but that's just a sound impression :rolleyes:

hhehehe I need german/french/russian lessons too. :p
If some of you would like to give spanish and german lessons I can give romanian lessons.But let's face it who is so stupid to learn this f.....g language.
If I think better,Marat would have learned some romanian words if the croatian team would'nt have beat us in the quarterfinals and the russian team with marat recovered would have come in romania for the semis.To bed he lost the oportunity to see the romanian girls famous for their beuty.Maybe next year.
I like Marat's hair.I think the self confident rocker image fits his personality.He likes his style and he doesen't give a damn on what the others say.He feels good in his body.I admire him for that.
I wonder what music does he listen.I know he listens rock,but what bends?I also wonder if he reads books?

I might be wrong but I think that russians' impression about how German language sounds could be a subconscious legacy of WWII and Soviet movies about war.

Does every russian name have a short version then? Here we just call people by their name. If someone has a nickname it's probably a name totally unrelated with that person's full name. In highschool we had a guy in our class called Robin that was universally known as "Doeze" (don't ask me where they got it). Sven used to be 'stoker' (=instigator :lol: ) because he was always up to no good ;)
