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..
