I honestly did not think it was possible for me to love him more than I already did... but, my Lord, he is just so awesome in these videos! funny and so freakin cute (loved the Rafa imitation), and oh, that grunting... I could listen to that all day... These vids are pure gold! Thanks for sharing!!!

Me too! (God bless the inventor of the wireless microphone) And I love a man who can grunt in 3 languages.

Apparently the players took the high speed rail to Kaohsiung this morning.

This man is the living proof that the ultimate thing to desire in life is charisma! Because there really isn't much that it can't solve!

I'm a grown up woman and still I watched the videos above giggling mesmerizedly like I was 13 or something

PS: Agassi: "I remember when you used to be good!"...that hurt, bitch! At least me...

What a coincidence!! Just a few minutes ago I came across this classic seasonal quotation (post no. 13) on Tennis Warehouse.

"Marat Charisma to all, and to all a good night." © slice_bh_compliment

A rather sensational video from today of the press conference in Kaohsiung. Please could someone try to grab it? If I had the technical wherewithal to do it myself, believe me, I would.

It sounds like Marat was asked why he doesn’t have a girlfriend, and @ 0:25 this is his reply:

“I've had no girlfriend for quite some time and it’s difficult. Difficult nowadays to (inaudible) because it’s a lot of work. We’re travelling all around the world and it’s very difficult to find somebody who will be able to understand tennis players. Because we belong to ourselves from the small kid. So we don’t belong to anybody, and for the women it’s a little bit tough to understand this. That from the age of maybe 10 years old, we're travelling by ourselves, we make our own money by ourselves, we live alone, we play alone and we travel alone. And this been for quite some time. To find somebody to live with, it’s very tough."

Andre throws him a staggering curve ball: “You’re trying to tell us you’re gay, right?”

Marat, momentarily nonplussed: “Are you? .... No no no I'm not gay”

Then Andre says something which Marat replies to, that I can’t quite catch, then Marat continues: “I saw some pictures today that (he nods and smiles). No, I’m not gay, sorry.”

^ I don't get it either. I think he was somehow trying to throw the attention back onto Andre for asking him such an appalling question.

Thanks for all the links!
I think Marat was saying that he saw pictures of women, which he liked, hence he is not gay.

^ I thought it might be that, but it was a bit of an awkward deflection by Marat. Then again, it was an extremely awkward comment by Andre.

Awww...he does porn, just like any other man!!! )))) That's a relief...

If even the most handsome man is forced to resort to porn nowadays (for reasons of not finding a suitable woman, bla, bla, whatever nonsense he keeps babbleing on this topic. The right women exist! They're looking at you, kid! Hundreds of them!)... then the world is doomed, mark my word!

Default Re: All the videos and audios of MaRaT!

From MSF, thank you peowen.

Here's a missing piece of the "I'm not gay" moment. @ 1:56, the audio cuts in with him saying "... somebody like me, or any other tennis player. So she has to do lot of sacrifices and not many girls are willing to do it." It's here that Andre comes in with "you're trying to tell us you're gay, right?"

@ 0:46 Marat is seen rubbing his knee and wincing after getting into the car, but apparently in the press conference he said he was OK.

@ 1:40 Andre gets his own back against Marat. I think things are OK between them now.


Press conference, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, 07 January 2011.

If this is true, we've found a flaw at last. That really is a relief.

I think the press on both videos is from today and Agassi's ego just can not endure that Marat got so much attention from the audience during the matches yesterday, maybe even more than him. This could be the explanation of Agassi's behaviour.

Somebody call in Steffi Graff already

It's definitely a possibility, although I was going to post at some point that I'm used to only Marat being the centre of public attention, whereas Andre is probably used to his being so. I can barely move in cyberspace for all the Agassi articles, videos and photos.

Probably in reality, as opposed to media coverage, Marat has once again effortlessly stolen the limelight from everyone within a 10,000 mile radius. Whosoever wishes to stew inwardly about it, may certainly do so.

If this is true, we've found a flaw at last. That really is a relief.
...at least it was his right knee....must have hit it on the door while he was being manhandled into the car.....

as for Andre's comments.....he has come across as a bit of a self-obsessed ass in his press so far on this tour, to my mind - although I don't really think Marat was all that phased or embarrassed by his comments - and his response was pretty much what you would expect - it's not the first time there have been "gay" rumours - there was yellow press trash way back - as were reports that there was porn on his phone - and I guess that can be interpreted as "normal" or a "flaw" according to your own opinion...

Even before Andre's ambush of sorts, he had demonstrated his tastelessness with that "I'll show you a photo of my wife - naked" - if I was Steffi I'd punch his lights out for that - anyways - even if he were gay, he's hardly likely to 'come out' in such circumstances - in fact, given the homophobia that is still rife he's hardly likely to 'come out' at all....(anyone interested there's a lot of discussion on the net about the fact that there are no 'out' tennis players - male ones, of course - somehow being a lesbian tennis player has some kudos these days...anyhow - I digress...)

What Marat was expressing in the rest of his comments about relationships is simply his independence, his "self-containedness" which is so characteristic of him - sure, his life experience has made him self-sufficient and totally independent - or rather, his fundamental personality, (being a free- thinking Aquarian with a Gemini moon) was particularly suited to the travelling lifestyle afforded by his pro tennis career - and he has never really conformed to the classic pro-athlete stereotype - with the smoking, the 'partying' (for which you could read 'womanising')all of which was typically over-exaggerated - but this reputation has stuck to him whether he likes it or not - there are still people who see him as nothing more than a lothario who 'wasted' his tennis talent - and it seems to me that those people fundamentally just don't 'get' Marat - at all.

Seems to me the press created his reputation because his non-conformity made him a 'colourful' character and his 'heart on the sleeve' behavior on court was merely enhanced by his off-court personality and charisma - his unpredictability made him perfect fodder and easy to write about - made all the more compelling by his physical beauty - lets fact it - he seems to 'have it all'..... and yet it seems to me that Marat himself is totally removed from the 'public' version of himself - for the most part he lets it ride and hides himself behind it - but if you listened carefully enough, there have been plenty of times when his irritation at the assumptions people make about him, at the implied trivializing of him as a professional came out - particularly in his final year....

Seems to me there is nothing about Marat that makes him suited to monogamy - in any aspect of his life, and therefore it's no surprise that even though he has tried 'settling' down in Moscow en-route to a life as one of the tennis establishment, he has re-discovered his travelling tennis life....modified to suit his own personal desires ...- and isn't it SO GOOD for all of us who love him to see him really having fun and being happy - single, gay, OR straight ???
