I don't think he is making the right decision, TF. This season is similar to 2001 for Marat. He keeps playing events while being injured, instead of giving his body the proper time to heal. Of course he did make a nice comeback in '01 at Flushing to reach the USO semis, but I doubt that that will happen this year. I think Marat should get surgery and come back fit and strong in 2004.
