    tennis will be a sad sad sport, without the ever emotion's of marat. there is no one with that glare, passion, fire, or sex appeal. thank you for making tennis my favourite sport. the australian open will have a quietness about it. of a hero, that once graiced our shores. mwa

    tennis will be a sadder place with the departure of Marat. Always played with a wicked glint in his eyes, full of talent, full of passion.
    His huge charecter/personality will bo sooo missed.
    As for his sex appeal, thats for a different place!!!
    A truly truly gorgeous dude...

    Marat Safin is a great tennis player. He's got the talent and everything. But he has one major weakness, his temprament.. I think he should really pressed his anger and his frustration to the lowest level when he's on the match..

    Well, udachi Marat..
    sometimes tennis is just tennis..
