Why couldn't MARAT SAFIN be bothered to support his little sister?

I really sometimes wonder if he is self-centered or jealous because he is struggling. Even Dinara said publicly that she wishes he had been there. I feel bad for her. She always supported him as the little sister. Why couldn't he do the same? Why go practice on grass immediately since he hates grass? A flight to paris is a short trip! Step it up, Marat and show your sister some support.

Yeah, it was clear Dinara wanted him to watch her.

He hates grass and he goes to London to prepare for grass. Something is wrong.

A commentator on the Belgian TV said that when Dinara was asked about Marat watching the final it would only make her more nervous.

who cares? she's doing fine without sexy marat. she don't need him to support her. she is strong enough to do it herself.

It would have been great for Marat to support Dinara in RG...But it is useless to discuss it now. There were probably reasons why he left for London so soon ...

Maybe he couldn't afford the air fare.

Re: Why couldn't MARAT SAFIN be bothered to support his little sister?

^ Good point.

It's not much cheaper though is it ?

Maybe he couldn't afford that either.

Re: Why couldn't MARAT SAFIN be bothered to support his little sister?

I doubt that.
When Safin won the Australian open in 2005, a month later he was after Safina to do the same or at least play up to her ability.

He had some choice words with her and although it didn't consistently light the fire under Safina, I feel it helped her.

He has his career going down the drain. I'm sure he would like one more good shot at a slam.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

I don't recall Safina sitting in his supporters box when he was playing finals, maybe she was but I don't recall it. Maybe they just don't choose to visibly support each other this way.

Marat's got the hots for Ana and wanted Ana to win. He didn't want Dinara to see him rooting for Ana.

Re: Why couldn't MARAT SAFIN be bothered to support his little sister?

I'm sure he's just trying to focus on his career just now and sent her all the support and good wishes he could.

Frankly, she's doing a lot better than he is right now so he needs to concentrate on getting his own game in order.

Maybe Marat can do something more this year than just complain about the pasta.
