for those who do not know Russian try babelfish or rustran.com to get an idea (or get misled )about what the article says...of course we would be very grateful to anybody volunteering to translate this
Uhmm, I'm not sure what to make of this article and this guy 'kissing and telling' and if he's telling all as it was. But if you have some patience I can make a more or less decent translation. (As Annie or anyone else speaking Russian is not around.)

Most parts of the article seem to be not an actual interview but parts from Abramov's expedition "report" which he might be writing.

Here part 1. Enjoy.

31 October 2007, No 162 (17 372)

Mountain climbing
"If he didn't whimper, didn't whine...". Mountain climber Alexander Abramov who risked to take Marat Safin to the mountains tells for the first time about the Himalayan epic of the tennis player


Ruslan Karman

"Well-known tennis player Marat Safin, former ATP number one, left for Tibet to conquer Cho Oyu, 8201 meters above sea level". This news, after appearing on the site of the Russian expedition on 11 September, in an instant annealed the world wide web by its incredibility. "It cannot be true!" - the sports world was filled with guesses. Traffic on the website of the expedition increased 10 (!) times...

At the same time Marat Safin really clambered through the Himalayan apexes.


ABRAMOV'S "SURPRISES"

Another 'duck' (? - no idea how one calls those untrue news in English) - some media hurried to comment the news when even the all-knowing Russian team captain Shamil Tarpischev did not believe the story "about Safin the mountain climber". Especially on the eve of the Davis Cup semi-final Russia vs Germany.

No doubts here - when Alexander Abramov, the leader of the autumn expedition to Cho Oyu is talking.

The same legendary Alexander Abramov, leader and guide of 9 (!) Himalayan expeditions who twice climbed Everest and one hundred fifty times other apexes of different complexity. From Antarctica to South America, from Lhotse to Kilimanjaro... In 1997 Abramov with his mates dragged to Elbrus... an automobile -SUV Land Rover. One may laugh at that advertising eccentricity of Abramov but it's better to take off one's hat at the professional mountain climber who presented their own Everest to tens of dunces - amateurs in mountain climbing.

Himalayas are generous to Alexandr with "surprises". Or he himself catches them? In 2005 on the mountain road in 100 km from the Kathmandu the Maoists threw a grenade inside his machine, leaving tens of splinters in the feet as a "gift"...

Marat Safin as a participant of Abramov's expedition - a new surprise bigger than the grenade.
... We arranged the meeting with Abramov by e-mail mail on 12 September. I was in Moscow, he on a mountain in Tibet.

"Wait for me after ascending, on 20 October I will come to your office. Prepare some tea. Abramov ".

SEVEN MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS + MARAT

20 October. Old Petrovsky-Razumovsky Drive. "Soviet Sport" editorial office. 19.00. To the stuffy aquarium of the office No 321 from the frosty freshness of the Himalayas came as promised Alexandr Abramov himself. Sharp razor already reconciled Alexandr with the Moscow reality, trimming the large beard.

- I did not drag Marat to the mountains! - Abramov sits down in the armchair more comfortably. - They told me that he wants to go with us to Cho Oyu three days before the departure to Kathmandu. Yuri Beloyvan and Kostya Zhelezov called: "Sasha, let's take our friend with us to the expedition, he's a well-known tennis player". Of course I refused. I shout into the phone: You want me to take a dunce with us, and who will be responsible for his life in the mountains?! Guys then calmed me: come on, old man, when you hear his name, you'll change your mind in an instant...

- He can be the Pope for what I care...

But as a result I gave in. Safin is excellently prepared physically. We decided that the additional responsibility for Marat will be on his two friends. They will also pay the services one additional sherpa.

FUNNY SLEEPING BAG

- But before, in Moscow, we were puzzled to get all the special equipment for Marat. I have never in my life seen so tall mountain climber, it took a lot of effort to get all the equipment for the fellow. We spent five hours in order to find him 40 kg of individual equipment in the shop, from the sleeping bag to the warm underwear.

By the way, I was introduced to him in the store "Alpindustriya". I come in and guys are on the floor rolling themselves from laughter. Marat was in the largest sleeping bag and couldn't get out of it by himself.

- Hello, - I say, - Marat, I will lead your merry team.

- Understood, I am Safin, you are the coach, how do you do, - Safin in an instant became serious and quickly scrambled himself out of the sleeping bag.

Back then I thought that probably Marat didn't like something. But later, already in Nepal, he explained to me that he has respect for the coaches in his subconscious. But in "Alpindustriya" we could not find the necessary boots No 47 which preserve heat- at a temperature to - 60 degrees. But Marat proved to be lucky: the high-altitude boots he needed waited for him three years in the warehouse.

... Generally at our first meeting he appeared depressed, frowned. Newspapers then wrote that Marat as an athlete has lost motivation. And I, it seems, was introduced to him on the peak of his spleen...

Already in the mountains he told me that he was depleted by his time in tennis. That he was especially annoyed by the repetition of the things: daily trainings, life in the hotels, the same rivals, the attention of journalists to his personal life, obligations to the sponsors. Not a life but a run in the circle which cannot be broken. So he decided to go with us to the mountains.

Here part 2.

THE "YOUNG ONE" DEALT THE CARDS

Alexander Abramov spreads before me the photos from the expedition album and continues his story:
- Seven mountain climbers plus Marat left from Moscow to the expedition to the sixth highest peak of the world. In Kathmandu we were joined by four sherpas and a Nepalese cook.

Every participant was a mini-sponsor of the expedition: we gathered 12 500 US dollars, without considering the cost of visas, airline tickets...

We left on 11 September.
... When we arrived in Kathmandu, many members of the expedition didn't know how to be with Marat. He is a very well-known person, even in Tibet people recognised him on the streets. Everyone wanted to have a picture with Safin. Marat did not reject the Nepalese people: "And you want to have a photo for the memory, come here, dear friend".

He generally seemed to be a very open person, not being a star at all.

Possibly because Marat understood: his habits and achievements on court will not help to climb the mountains.

He walked in the same clothes than us, ate tender mutton from the common pot, borsch from the culinary specialist Yuri Beloyvan, slept in the rooms for four in cheap hotels of Dzhangmu, Nyalam and Old Tingri, after getting into the sleeping bag (we feared not the cold but to catch louse). How Marat was able to get into the sleeping bag with his height is a riddle. But with stoicism he continued to fight with the sleeping bag also in Tibet, after becoming a constant object of jokes.

Safin was not offended. He himself joked a lot too. But he didn't want to play poker with us in the evening: "Guys, let me as the youngest one better deal you the cards, but you play as much as you like ".

- Well and you, of course, didn't drink alcohol? - I pour tea into Abramov's mug.

- We took a little alcohol with us - a bottle of Australian wine for each participant of the expedition. Therefore we enjoyed life practically without any alcohol.

NIGHT OF TENNIS IN KATHMANDU

- In the mountains Safin, in my opinion, like thawed: he jested, he was the soul of the company, told anecdotes. But I didn't ask him about tennis, although I myself like to run on the court with the racket in my spare time. Well, about what to ask: how to serve? It is stupid. But there was one day in Kathmandu, the night, when Safin told to us about tennis for two hours.

We were gathered on the flat roof of a house, as guests of Katya and Igor, my friends who live in Nepal for ten years already. The sky was full of stars like candles on the chocolate cake, the table was set, Marat was relaxed like a cat in the hammock. My friend Sergey Kofanov took a guitar. We sang, laughed, thought, "how great that we are all here...".

And here Dima Moskalev asked Safin, how much does a real tennis racket cost. Simply asked, and as a result we listened to the lecture for two hours and were fascinated : who and why wins in big tennis. And due to what it's possible to beat the invincible Roger Federer on hard, and Nadal on clay. It's a pity that none of us surmised to switch on the dictophone. Marat talked, talked, like he tuned himself up for the future victories...

TO THE MOUNTAIN WITHOUT THE ICE-AXE

- Safin was the focus of attention. Didn't this cause any conflicts among the participants in the expedition?

- It's bad when differences in the team surface. I am not a bad psychologist, from the childhood I sense possible conflict situations. I foresee problems in the group for a couple of days ahead. So here, the presence of Marat joined us all together, everyone wanted to give him valuable advice: how to bind knots and laces on the boots, to cope with the tent, to climb on the cliffs and to get down ... The microclimate in the group was excellent.

- Marat really did subjugate the apexes of Nepal with the ice-axe?

- In Kathmandu we spent four days getting permission for the ascent. On 15 September on two jeeps we left for the mountains. Our route: Kathmandu - Dzangmu - Nyalam - Old Tingri - base camp - ascending - base camp - Old Tingri - Nyalam - Dzangmu - Kathmandu.

Marat reached with us only the base camp, it was at 5100 meters, this is almost the height of Elbrus.

As we moved to the base camp, we simultaneously completed two ascendings. On 16 September we rose to the mountain Murat (4100 meters), on 19 September we ascended Shigar (4700 meters). Marat went with us, only without the ice-axe, because ice-axe could prove useful only at the height of 6400 meters, not earlier. So Marat didn't change the tennis racket for the ice-axe, as they romantically wrote in some newspapers. He just didn't have the chance. To Murat and Shigar he ascended with the telescopic stick.

During the ascending I had to check on Marat. The spirit of competition in the mountains is unacceptable. "Calmer, Marat, calmer". I don't need dramatic episodes in the mountains, guys fighting with each other. He understood that.

But when we rose to the first apex Murat, outwardly calm Safin started to dance like a kid! And rose his arms proudly. Probably he didn't rejoice the Davis Cup victory that much. I of course congratulated him only after descent from the mountain: mountain climbing is not tennis. Victory here means the ascent to the apex and the successful descent.

MARAT IS NOT A DUNCE

- How did Safin explain his departure to Moscow?

- He made the decision to return in the base camp. I think he made the right decision. Because Safin is not a mountain climber, he is a tennis-player who has contractual obligations to the sponsors. When Marat climbed the mountains, he did not represent his country, he used his vacation in order to get new emotions and impressions.

Ascending to Cho Oyu, as to any other 8000-meter-peak is dangerous at any time of the year! No one can guarantee security at the heights higher than the base camp and especially higher than 7000 and 8000 meters. He left on the jeep back to Kathmandu. And on 23 September he was already in Moscow at the Davis Cup semi-final.

Abramov looks at the watch, his story is approaching the end.

- What I think of him now? He is an honest and a very good person. In the mountains I understood why this man will never cheat and get himself a point when the ball was out. And Marat is not a dunce by nature. I often lead well-off, successful people to the mountains, some of them think that they must be successful in everything, even in mountain climbing. And here frequently occurs the psychological breakage, people begin to panic, facing the external problems. Indeed we are only successful in a specific sector of life.

In contrast to the "successful dunces" Safin did not whimper in the mountains. Guys were upset after learning about his decision to return to Moscow. He had managed to become one of us in our team. Therefore I sincerely wish for him as the best mountain climber among the tennis players to conquer new apexes. But should Marat start feeling spleenful again I myself will invite him to the mountains. On 10 October Alexander Abramov's group completed a successful ascending to Cho Oyu. They ascended to the apex: Konstantin Zhelezov, Alexandr Abramov, Yevgeny Semenov, Yuri Beloyvan, Alexander Chesnokov, Dmitry Moskalev. On their way up Abramov managed to rescue a Taiwanese mountain climber who had broken his foot. Transporting the guy, Abramov clicked him to his protection rope and descended with him 25 meters on the vertical ice wall.

Anyway .... I think it's better this way, we can al use our own imagination about the fun in the sleepingbag

He's not such a good double player... moreover the double will be againt the Bryan's, so...
If he comes, he will have to play a single match or it won't be worthwhile
