Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti
Pretty sure there will be live streams of both the Moscow tournament and the RG Legends, plus the Beeb usually shows the latter on the red button.
OK I'm not usually one for empty cynicism, but I think Safin's occasional jaunts into exhibition tennis may have more to do with the fat fees than any abiding love of the game. Yes, it's nice to see him on the court again (if indeed he deigns to appear), but the fact remains he has sold his soul to the devil, politically, no matter how charming he is in a tennis context. I am no longer able to separate the two.
Also, he can put a thrifty spin on his spending habits as much as he likes, but if you're shopping on Bond Street, "designer discounts" or not, you're paying silly money.
He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
