Hey guys,
just wanted to share with you my thoughts regarding Russia DC tie against France. I may not be Russian, but hopefully I’m posting in the right thread… And congratulation for your great team! (sorry for those who will be bored by the long text)

How I fell in love with Team Russia

I’ve almost always liked Russian players. For different reasons, but it is the first time, that in my little life as a tennis fan, I get to say I am fan of a team. It’s not the same as when it is your country. You’re not a fan of the players but you want them to win because they are from you’re country, even if in regular situation you wouldn’t care much about their results. Or when you are a fan of a player, and consequently support all his team, because you want him to win or just be happy.
That is the big difference I am feeling right now.
I want them to win, because I think they truly represent what tennis is: an athletic and smart GAME. I think tennis lost its popularity because it lost touch with the people. It is harder for this sport today to gain new fans, not just because of bad coverage, but also because people have a hard time relating to the players. That’s what I think anyway. And that’s where Team Russia comes in the picture.
They may not be the most entertaining guys when you take them individually, but as a Team, they combine everything that is attractive in sports: performance, character, game, fitness, speed, and FUN (you can call it entertainment if you prefer). I may get carried away, but it felt like watching Brasil in soccer. All the good vibes were pouring out of my TV, the French did put up a great fight, no match was an easy win, and yet, the Russians players seemed so happy to be there. And almost all of them expressed gratitude, at one point or another to have been selected and given the opportunity to play and show what they were capable of!
I have never seen any tennis team have as much fun(not silly fun, they knew when to be serious ) as I saw the Russians have last weekend. When you combine it with the quality of the tennis, it makes up for a great and FUN weekend. I do not think it is due to the fact that they don’t take the French seriously, I highly doubt that.
Safin was asked what he liked in the Davis cup and how he felt about it. He said it was great because you get to be with your friends, train and rest , have fun, and play soccer!
During Davydenko’s singles on Friday, Safin and Tursunov were fighting on the courtside with bottles. The rest of the time, all the team just had a big smile on their faces, cracking jokes. Do not misunderstand, they were following the match, just no nail-biting.
Nicolas Escudé mentioned speaking through signs with Marat, during that match.
On Saturday, during the doubles, I think the jokes were flying very high, they almost did not stop. It was very discreet, but french commentators were kind of surprised to see the Russian team so relaxed. They thought maybe it was to take some pressure off, or because they didn’t care for the doubles. But Tursunov and Youzhny were sweating their asses off on the court, even though they lost. It looked like the guys in the stands were making fun of Tursunov, especially when they won the 3rd set, it felt like: You did it!How do you feel? In a mocking way. At some point, Tursunov, who describes himself as “the least serious” of Safin’s squad (he must be crazy then, lol) (according to L'Equipe) even threw a ball at them! And all this in a great atmosphere. Even at the draw ceremony, I think it was on Thursday, Davydenko and Safin were laughing.
I am amazed and pleased at the same time, to see high level tennis players get along that well, without feeling jealousy or rivalries as in some teams (cough..Germany…cough).
Russia is not the only team like this I agree. Others like France, USA, also have a lot of friendship and support among them.
But I like the combination with the depth of players and the amazing tennis. I think it sets them apart.
Seeing them have so much fun on and beside the court was a blast all weekend. I didn’t know Davydenko’s sense of humor, but considering how much he made Marat laugh this weekend, I guess it is more than ok. It was a pleasure to see him relaxed and with emotions on his face.
Last but not least, their captain, who is maybe the coach who speaks and expresses the least, said himself that the reason of his team success is the sense of humor. That every single member of the team was very funny, including doctors and trainers, and that it was very important to keep good relationships among the players, that they have fun together.
My little cousin who was home with me this weekend, who usually doesn’t like watching tennis because he thinks it is boring told me: “it actually looks fun”.
That is what it is, a game. And when it is played brilliantly, that’s where the magic starts.
Whether Russia is going to win, is not really my point here, I just think, once again, they found a positive way to make themselves different from any other team. I just wait for Safin and Tursunov to get better results on grass, and they will be the most complete team.
Let’s the fun continue throughout the year!
