What's with all of the football, by the way? I see it's a tournament but it seems like he plays in a small league or something considering the regularity of the football. Kafelnikov could do with playing a bit of football (or anything except poker and golf). Though actually, to his credit, he's not looking like he was a few years ago. I was really shocked!
Burrow!
I think the football tournaments are all part of Marat's pact with the devil post-retirement fitness maintenance plan. In exchange for his soul Instead of joining a Sunday league, he gets to play for the State Duma on a fairly regular basis. He also played a friends tennis tournament just before Christmas last year at the Agalarov Golf & Country Club, so golf might be on the cards at some point. I don't think he'll pork out like Kafelnikov, though.

Agree about the facial hair, makes him look prematurely middle-aged and rough around the edges. The transformation when he shaves is almost miraculous.

Hi monkey (where's the tattoo part these days?!)

I haven't been keeping too up to date with his life after tennis. I've heard he's made a few enemies, the last thing I can recall was something concerning him opposing homosexuality.

I see, I'm not sure when but within the last year or so I seen him wearing football boots from 2003 (I used to have them :P) and I was surprised because he seems to be playing all the time. Football boots typically don't last too long with use.

Oh no, not golf... Although Marat as a golfer would probably bring in some good entertainment (not for the poor groundsmen though).

Yes, he's kind of gone the opposite way, he must weigh around 82kg or something now, he's looking very thin. He looks well though.

By the way, where did he meet his current girlfriend? She looks quite a bit older than him. She looks like she could be one of those catwalk models.

Have a look at this Wikipedia article for a précis, particularly the sections "Local Laws" and "National Laws". Marat, and all other State Duma MPs, voted for the recent legislation, something which hasn't exactly endeared him to his gay fan base (if he still has one), or indeed anyone else.

Ten year-old football boots? Maybe he keeps buying the same style/design? Anyway, yes, for the past couple of years he's been playing in at least two annual Duma football events, the inter-party tournament which takes place in spring, and the Parliamentary Games which is in autumn. He also played a charity match earlier this year in February.

She's done fashion shows, as well as magazine shoots and catalogue stuff. She's actually almost four years younger than he is. But I've no idea where or when they met.

As much as I support gays in russia it's kinda annoying that it had to be homophobic law that made him enemies, but not the horrific anti-adoption law basically sentencing many disabled russian orphans to short life in misery and in many cases to death.

"On the flight Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod I encountered a tall man, his face seemed very familiar. It turned out that this is the best Russian tennis player of all time, the former first racquet of the world, and now a State Duma deputy from the Nizhny Novgorod region, Marat Safin! He also came to the opening of the Super Final and modestly sat in the back row, then gave way to an elderly man standing and listening. In general, he made a very good impression".
