oh and to stay on topic (), this is nice what he said about Dinara. And since she seems to learn from his mistakes I hope she'll indeed enjoy the moment as much as possible

So true. I think he just wants us to want to kick his ass till the end.

Guys, pwease, don't get too deep in this. As I said earlier it sounds too severe in English The journalist tried to give him a guilt trip, but Marat didn't fall in the trap. All is fine, things go as planned. He smiles

Btw Tarpi also said that Marat could play good tennis 2-3 years more, if he wants to

btw the english summary translation is a bit misleading. After this part "Though there are several moments, which could change my mind" the journalist asked Marat to specify what moments exactly can make him change his mind and Marat answered that it's personal and not related to tennis.

agreed with Tarpi

About the rest, you may be right but it doesn't change the fact that there had been a few close calls on recent matches and that he just didn't seem to believe in his chances enough, and lost them when he could really have won them. That's what annoys me. As I said in he previous post, and several times before, I totally understand that he wants to quit, but I'm thinking "if these are your last tournaments, don't you want to give your best?". He says he's no pressure this year. If so, then he shouldn't start thinking on court when he's leading on the scoreboard. What happened in recent matches looks a lot like choking and choking to me is related to pressure, and to the moment when you realize you can win and you suddenly add pressure on your shoulders...
If he's determined to quit and has no pressure, how can he blow up a double break advantage in the 3rd set?

See that's what i'm not too comfy with. He wants to quit? fine. And a farewell tour is a great thing to do. But if you're saying goodbye at least say it well.

Steppy, I'll try to translate few of this words, that I think summarize best the whole interview:
"I play matches and tournament like before. Some places I win, some places I lose. Some places I play better, some places worse."

Nothing too dramatic. IMHO he still tries to win matches, still tries to do something well (hence the pressure that he denies), but mentality has always been of a trick to him. That's part of his whole brilliance, after all As Irochka pointed out, at some point he might get afraid he'll win

50% on topic: In the Arena When Winning is All in the Family

I think I've seen this quote before, but I always love it...
Quote:
“They are good together,” Islanova said recently. “Their spirits are pretty much identical. They have the souls of a brother and sister and always felt that way, and as parents we put so much effort and time so that they would grow together.”


100% on topic: SD ekskluzivno Dinara Safina: Marat sad može u mirovinu, a Ljubičiću još dugujem večeru!

Uhhh... I don't speak Croatian, but from Google Translate it seems like she's been training in Munich and is in relatively good spirits. It also sounds like she might have fired her fitness coach, but it's Google Translate, so who knows?

Was the journalist trying to give him a guilt trip about retiring?


Ahh.. and so he did go to the aftermatch press conference. Has anyone seen a transcript of this?

It bugs me because he seems to be playing alright and still losing, when he really shouldn't be! You need confidence to win matches and you need to win matches to be confident. It's a tough situation.
