i agree. It changes from all those journalists that rarely see a mtch of his and use the same clichés again and again

You guys, i don't know why, but i got really emotional reading this article. (Might've even let a tear or two.) It's just so hard to be a safinholic...... But if WE worry and get down so much, can you imagine how HE must feel? I mean under so much pressure all the time.
Agh.... I love the sucker!

Nicki! One thousand s and s Posting the pics and articles was so thoughtful and time consuming. Thank you soooo much.

btw, Mr Curls just asked what I want for dinner ... well, one of the pics was one the screen, so I pointed to it and said "I'll have THAT thanks!!" ... he rolled his eyes ... Curls Jr laughed and said "hahaha Mum, you can't eat Safin!!!" ... little does he know !!!!
Pam, Pam, Pam! Stop it, woman! You are cracking me up!!

I hadn't opened this thread, yet, when I saw that one of our Safinholics has one of the GQ pics as an avatar. I let out one of my audible "Hmph"'s. Of course, my hubby asked what it was for. When I told him I got the too.

blamethebloom, I got emotional reading the article as well. I didn't quite cry. But, I felt the depth of the journalist's feelings. He eloquently described all the mesmerizing and maddening facets of the enigma known as MARAT SAFIN in the words of a true die-hard fan. This article was a really good read.

I found the sports psychology article to be very fascinating as well. It was good advice for Marat and anyone who wants to regain focus and composure.

I want to know what that Russian word means, too, please.
