Marat was scheduled to start his match around 7 am my time, and I happily woke up at 7:15 (fortunately spontaneously--if I'd set an alarm I'd be quite put out), hoping to see an hour, maybe an hour and a half of his match. The women's match went to a third set tiebreak with these insanely long games, which would have been great if I cared about that match more than Marat, but I most definitely don't, and I left at 9 am, just in time to catch a glimpse of Marat's face as he was warming up.

Marat's whole attitude toward this blogging seems to be, "If you have so much time on your hands, you could be doing something useful, like my dishes. "

Re which, see my new location. I am a dishwasher, not a cook. If I were in charge of cooking for him, he would still end up eating cornflakes. I happily do cleaning, though.

Day 1:
"On my way back I wanted to stop at the Bania (Russian bath house) with Alexander Volkov who is helping me but then Gabashvili called because he was supposed to hit with (Dmitry) Tursunov but he had to cancel so he wanted Volkov to take his place. So I had to be the driver and drop Alexander back at the Olympic Stadium. Thanks to Gabashvili I did not get to go to the Bania, he took away Volkov and I was depressed until after the doubles today. I am actually more depressed now...

And we're guaranteed at least two entries, one for the first round doubles loss and one for the first round singles loss! Anything beyond that is gravy!

The Very Secret Diary of Marat Safin
How ironic would it be to plagiarize Cassie here? All due credit for this wonderful idea.
Day 1. Walt fell into the abyss last week. Too upset to play. Lost.
Suspect Dima may have a crush on me. Sasha will kill him if he tries anything.
Day 2. Feli still...
