Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

Sorry for my ignorance but....how do I post the photos??

By the way, I'm new here. I've introduced myself in the non-tennis forum...I wonder if I had to do the same here??

Thanks in advance for your patience

:O

Cute!!! His smile in the last picture is so meaning!!! I'd like to know what is behind that smile.
The secret behind Marat Safin's enigmatic smile.
Thank you for the pictures. Btw, hello to all. I think it's my first comment, but I read this forum (I really appreciate here)a long time,like 2 years. Haha IDK just now (with retirement) I decided to comment something... It's strange, but I didn't have time and I didn't have an acc, but better late than never!

Maratsmaiden: Yes, yes. "The Strut." Or, swagger. Or, amble. Whatever it's called, it's awesome. It's cocky, even.

The thing is, he doesn't seem cocky *at all* off the court. But on court, he uses it to his advantage. Players like Nadal and Del Potro intimidate their opponents by jumping/hopping/bouncing showing how energetic and ready for battle they are. Marat has enough presence to just stand there and intimidate people. Kind of like Russell Crowe in Gladiator. Other players have commented on it. Did you hear Verdasco in the "goodbye video"? He said, "So, big. So, strong. You have to be careful what you say about him."

I can tell you this much. If I showed up for a match and saw this as my opponent, I'd be scared, too!

Re: Tribute: Your favourite Pics of Marat!

I pretty much love every Marat photo ever taken, so, this is a difficult task for me... (as I'm sure for everyone else) But, there are two things (outside of him actually playing tennis, and his face) that really stood out for me about this man -

1. His strut. I couldn't believe the way this man walked around, both while practicing and behind the baseline - he had/has a swagger about him that no other player (or man for that matter) I've seen has. It's so masculine and confident... 2. His service motion. I absolutely am in love with it - the power, the acceleration, the definition of his body when he hits it, the little tummy sticking out of the shirt when he has one on.. I don't know - it drives me nuts.... here are a few pics that represent these two things from my collection of favorites... enjoy!

(thanks for this one justsafin - I'll treasure it always)
