Re: Safin fans counted - census in Hippoland!
Thankyou to all for your kind welcome. Although I am unsure as to whether I like being called a 'lurker'.
In terms of this being a "difficult moment", I would have to disagree. If I remember correctly, Marat wasn't playing too well this time last year. He is coming back from a very long break and maybe just a little bit rusty. I realise that everyone, me included, is impatient for a win but it may be too soon for talk of retirement. Marat has too much talent to just throw it away!
