PS: As regards Marat’s dressing up for the same event on the 16th….man...my man…Marat… remember that great combination you’ve sported in Kishinev some 2 months ago (dark grey suit + purple shirt)?…that was great, it made your green eyes pop. Brown and black on the other hand makes you look like a working class widower from Odessa at his mother in law’s funeral! May the working class, widowers, Odessa and mothers in law excuse me…
I sometimes think that Tursunov and his fancy pinkish shirts are the only piece of class in men’s tennis!
Rausa is a noted tennis coach as well as having been a good player herself in Russia. Among her students are Anna Kourokova, Elena Dementieva, , Nastasia Myskina to name a few. And here children of course. No doubt the awards wre for her,
