Happy New Year, everyone. Amazing that an entire year has passed since retirement! I know this is the 2011 thread and I'm posting an old photo, but the concept is new, at least.

I collected my favorite shots I've taken over a period of three years and combined them into one retrospective. There are lots of His Royal Hotness along with Fed, Rafa, etc.

Enjoy!

And another preview, per Heidi's request .



This one has been hiding in a long-forgotten folder on Flickr for all these years. Not too many people have seen it! That 2008 Cincy tournament was perfection. It was the year he stayed around for several days to practice even after losing. I'd show up to capture other players, and poof! There he was again. It was also exceptionally hot, so he never practiced with a shirt at all. Bless him.

Happy New Year, aj. What can one do but Thank you so much.

^^ And thanks for bumping the small pics. Nice caps, btw. In the last one, it looks like Marat's about to be swatted off the stage by Andre's enormous ego backhand.

EDIT: managed to find a slightly bigger version of this one.

Thank you, Steffi

So twice in the space of 1.5 months Marat has broken out into a profuse off-court sweat during a public appearance.
As he seems in otherwise excellent health, and is no shrinking violet in public, I wonder if he's gone cold turkey and
given up smoking. That can cause cold sweats for sure.

And HAppy NEw Year to all - just want to say ILOVE your photography - not just the great shots of Marat - and although it is hard to take a really 'bad' shot of him I think, your pics always seem to capture a moment when he is doing something particularly aesthetic with his face or body - usually, both! hehehe.... but I also admire your other work too - thanks for sharing!

The smiling pics in post #42 are great!
Marat giving Andre the bunny ears!
Thanks for posting, monkeytattoo.

I'll try to watch the videos in the other thread when I have more time.

There are a large number of things that can cause it, but I think it was probably just the bright lights. Same thing likely with the Russian Awards event. Some people are just sensitive to warm temperatures - like me. I break out in a full sweat at 60ºF/15ºC, and I don't even own a heavy coat even though I have cold winters.

Lucky you, I layer myself into oblivion when the temperature drops below 70ºF.

Re: heavy sweats, for sure there are many causes - him quitting nicotine cold turkey was just an armchair diagnosis, and probably a form of wishful thinking.
