Safin 62 64 in 68 minutes - now that hasn't happened in a very long time. Next up is Golubev.

Davydenko withdrew today because of a wrist injury.

Safin May Quit After Paris Defeat - BBC Sports news

Former world tennis number one Marat Safin has said he is considering quitting the sport after his exit in the first round of the Paris Masters.

The 28-year-old Russian lost 6-0 7-6 to Argentine qualifier Juan Moncao in France and believes he may have achieved all he can.

"I need to enjoy life without tennis, I will see if I continue," he said.
"It was too intense these last three years. I have no pressure, nothing to show, nothing to prove."

Earlier this month, the world number 31 was beaten by his compatriot Igor Kunitsyn in the final of the Kremlin Cup, and he has not won a tournament since his victory at the Australian Open in 2005.

you'd think he'd look at his sister and not quit!
dinara felt like quitting but then fate stepped in, maybe the same will happen for marat..and wyna is right, no right decisions are made out of frustration.
Sad news... and anyway he had his period of no tennis and now when hes got goals, you know back in the top 30. Just because of one defeat...

"It was too intense these last three years. I have no pressure, nothing to show, nothing to prove." - hmmm well u can't MAKE someone enjoy tennis when they aren't, i wish she had the Federer mentality - hes won NEARLY (damn that rafa!) everything once but hes still wants the wins and knows that hes lucky he can still enjoy the tennis WITHOUT expectations.

Safin's participation is far from guaranteed after the two-time Grand Slam winner indicated he may take a break from the game following his 6-0, 7-6 (7-4) loss to Juan Monaco in the first round of the Paris Masters on Monday.

Hopman Cup tournament director Paul McNamee said Safin's manager told him the star Russian would announce his intentions in the first week of November.

I think we will know by next week if he truly meant what he said yesterday about retiring. :scared:

Highlights of Marat's interview to sovsport.ru ( St Petersburg tournament )

Even though Safin lost in a 2nd round, he seemed to be in a good mood at the press conference.



Marat: "Lately, level of players got much higher, so underestimating the opponents is in the past. Andrej was playing risky all match, played great from the right side, served great, and, what’s important, he had luck. It was his day today."

Marat, how do you feel about your sister Dinara being ranked higher on WTA tour than you on ATP?

Marat: "I’m happy for her. I am ready for everything for her! Even to “tolerate” the fact that she is more popular than me!" – laughing Marat

More news from Hopman Cup:

McNamee said he had spoken to Safin's manager and had taken the necessary steps to ensure the tournament would not be affected.

"Marat's going to make a decision in the first week of November, so far as we're concerned. That's what I've been told by his manager," said McNamee. "By then, Marat's plans will have been crystallised whether he's going to press on or perhaps pull the plug.

"He hasn't made up his mind yet. He's 'contemplating retirement', I guess is the best way to describe it. I spoke to Igor Andreev, who's a top-20 singles player.

"He's on standbye if Marat decides to retire."

But despite the announcement, McNamee said he was still hopeful Safin would come to Perth and said the star's on-court intensity would be missed if he decided to walk away from the game.

"It's a big thing, retiring - it's not a small decision. I know from experience with a lot of players that it's one thing to think about it but it's another thing to really do it. I'm still hopeful that he'll keep playing," said McNamee.

Im hopeful too :sad:

I think getting to number one spot and winning AO is what really on Dinara's list, not some exhibition even if it includes doubles with Marat ;)
If Marat really decides to retire Dinara will be supporting his decision.

Here is an interview from sovosport.ru where Peter Lundgren is talking about Marats possible retirement. He doesn´t think that Marat will retire!

Translated version:

Peter Lundgren: "I do not think Safin will retire from tennis - just needs to rest "

The ex-mentor Marat Safin Swede Peter Lundgren in an interview with Eurosport comment on the information that his former pupil can complete the career.

The last two years on ATP tour have been very difficult for Safin, one of the most talented players in world tennis. The results have shown, one can described as catastrophic, the only exception to this unfortunate trend was reaching the semifinal Wimbledon Championships 2008, where he succumbed to Swiss Roger Federer.

And yesterday Marat was ousted in the first round at the Masters Series tournament in Paris, losing in two sets to Argentine's Juan Monaco - 0:6, 6:7 (4:7). After that defeat Safin said that perhaps this match will be the last in his career.

But Lundgren, who coached the Russian when he won the Australian Open-2005, voiced his opinion.

" I spoke with Safin and realized that he is now very tired of tennis. After the match with Monaco, he was very upset, said that he was tired of playing. Nevertheless, do not think Marat will leave the tennis world - he simply needed a rest " - said Swedish specialist.

Q : You continue to communicate regularly with him?
Lundgren: Yes, we are continue to communicate with one another. Now Marat most need a vacation, after which he may again will find the motivation necessary to play at a high level. There is a mass of examples where high-level players do the same, and then came back and played even better than before.

Q: And do you think Marat will find motivation after the rest?
L: There is only one person who is able to answer that question - Marat himself. I am simply saying that he needs to recover, both physically and emotionally.

Q: How you consider, Safin's game peak already has passed ?
L : He is only 28 years old , but he has been on the tour for a long time.. From my point of view of his talent, qualities, to it still equal to no one in what personally I do not have any doubt. At the given stage the problem is covered in the field of psychology.

He should go out with a bang, put alot of effort and training for 2009 and THEN quit

I really think that he put effort into his practice. Maybe not every day of his career, but normally.
The point is just that when he feels that he doesn't have this strong desire what you need to be in this tennis world, then I don't think that all effort, all training will help. He had some good times this year (Wimbledon, Moscow) but still the season was overshadowed with horrible losses to players he should not lose to and especially not in the way he lost to them.
And as much as I love that guy and as much I would hate to not see him on the court anymore, I hate it even more to see him lose to these players.
I am sure that a lot of his problems are mental, but let's face it, he hasn't won a title since AO 05 and unless he finally knows what he has to change - I hate to say that - but maybe he should call it a day.

BBUT I still hope that he will stay another year and I won't give up hope that he'll win another tournament because he has so much talent :angel:

This is from Fernando Meligeni's blog. A poster from his official site just translated it but I thought u guys would like to read it as well http://maratsafin.freeforums.org/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
http://blogdofininho.blog.uol.com.br/ (original in portuguese)


No Safin, please don't. Tennis needs you

Stay Marat

When I read the statement that Safin was seriously considering leaving the sport I froze.

His decision would be the most normal in the world. After many years traveling, playing and in recent times, most of the time losing, you could not expect another reaction. I have been wondering what still motivated him. Former No. 1 in the world and a cutting-edge player, in recent years he was just one more in the circuit. But being him the most funny for you to see play, the most crazy, the most nervous, even when not playing well, NOOOOOO.

I had the chance to live a lot with him, to know that his "madness" in court was just inside it. Always in a good mood, super charismatic and playful out of the competition when they said "play" My God, the man turned into a beast.

He never was ashamed to break two or three rackets during training after having lost his serve. Telling his coach to go to that other place was another of his favorite attitudes. He was one of the few players who got the most crowds when he played and when he trained. Everyone expected his reactions. Two minutes after trainning was over he was back to being the same guy as ever, as if nothing had happened.

When he arrived at the tournament he came with a truckload full of rackets, if he was winning you would start to hear that he was hoping to have more Head rackets sent for him. He had already broken 10, 12, or whatever how many. He was the joy of the ballboys . He distributed broken rackets around the club.

For me he is now one of the most important guys in the circuit. In an era in which "robots" rule in tennis, few of them do anything besides play, win, lose and get their checks at the end of the tournament. To have Marat in a championship is a sure thrill. You realize that when top 10 players are moved from the central court to give way for him. I particularly and the vast majority of the directors of the tournaments prefer Marat and a top 100 in the central court than a top-10 without salt and a top 20 without vibration. A Söderling against a Robredo.

I remember an episode in this same tournament in Paris, in 1999.

Children do not use it as an example, okay. It is only an episode from the tour.

Guga and I had lost in the first round. I to the mega nice Hewitt and Guga to Safin. Since it was the last tournament of the year and we were on vacation we decided to go out that same night.

We were in the heart of Paris and we had been told of a VIP club that was a "bomb" and as we were children of God we decided to check it out. The place was really a show. At the entrance to the first person we meet is the singer Prince and an - (I have no idea what he means here - Brazilian slang). I looked and said to Guga, "this is awsome Guga!?"

Logically we had arrived in the middle of the night. What a show.

We were getting used to the sound when well into the night who comes in? He did. Marat Safin and several friends. Not a little worried about the hour, much less that he was still "alive" in the tournament, he sits at a table and begins to enjoy his night. Further into the night I see Guga talking to him, indignant, I get closer and I hear: "man, go to sleep, you have a match early. You took me out of the tournament and now you're here enjoying the sound?" And he, calm as a cucumber says, "relax, man, I'm staying till morning and I'll still win the tournament this week. You'll see."

And he almost did that, contradicting all facts, he went out every night and reached the final in the tournament. In the end lost to no one other than Agassi. Go figure it out!

It is true that in this day and age he does not play at 30% of what he used to play. His "strokes" of serve and two handed backhand were things that made any lover of tennis drool from the stands. Today, a little slower and more erratic than before he shows that he lost the hunger, the nerve and most importantly, the aggressiveness in court. I still hope that he is only going through a moment of doubt. That next year he will be on the circuit again.

Tennis would lose much, tennis lovers would be orphans of a great tennis player and foremost a great human being. For me one of those guys who make a difference.

You have players who when they stop no one else remembers, while others stay in your memory for forever.

Stay Safin, tennis needs you.

29th October 2008
THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE


After losing in the 1st round in the last tournament of the year, Marat mentioned that he was thinking about what was in his future regarding tennis and this was picked up by the media and has spread a lot of speculation around the world.
In order to try and get a better idea of what Marat is thinking, we spoke to him before he left for his vacation.
Q: How do you feel right now?
A: I'm very tired. I guess after so many years on the tour, when you finish the season, you feel very tired and can't wait to get away and also I need it in order to take the right decision.
Q: Where do you plan to go?
A: I'm going this week to Miami and in a couple of weeks when I am back in Moscow, I will be wiser and more concrete about my plans.

Q: Can you please clear a little bit the confusion that is around about what you were talking about in the press conference after losing your 1st round match?
A: I actually said nothing in particular, I was just talking generally and I don't really know where all these rumours came from. All I said was that I am tired and I need some time off in order to make some good decisions.

Q: You can understand how your many fans are feeling these days. Can you clarify more about the various options and your wishes?
A: I have been playing professional tennis for over a decade. Its hard for me to find new goals for my career however the love for the game and the passion inside me are still very strong and that is why it makes it more difficult. There are still places where I would like to play, to be able to meet my fans and say goodbye properly to the many people who have followed me through out these last years.
I'm considering to play for one more year. I am also considering maybe to stop completely and then another option is to particularly play mostly in the places and tournaments which I really like and that had a tremendous impact on my career. That's why I need some time off to think it through properly, to talk to my my long time partners and sponsors and then I'll be able to hopefully make a better decision.
Q: We wish you a great vacation and there is no need to mention how much all of us would like to see you on the court playing your great tennis.
A: Thank you so much. This is all part of my consideration.
I ask you all not to listen to the rumours flying around and I promise to all my fans that they will hear from me directly once I make up my mind.
I wish you all happy vacations.
Marat.

"Yesterday we made comments about Marat Safin and check out the power he has even in this blog: over 9.000 people visited the page, more than 70 comments were made, and for the first time the girls were frenetically expressing their opinions. That's called charism folks. The man is fire. The man is popular in the tournaments, in his country and even in my blog."

I hope Marat knows from the overwhelming response he got from his post-interview comments that people LOVE HIM AND DON'T WANT HIM TO QUIT!

He's bigger than the Pope i daresay, he is charisma personified.

Serena Out \ Marat Safin In
8 December 2008

PERTH. US Open winner and world number 2 Serena Williams has been forced to withdraw from the Hyundai Hopman Cup. She injured her hamstring in the year ending WTA Championships and has not been able to recover in time to prepare adequately for the Perth tournament. She still intends to play the Australian Open.

However, in a boost to the tournament, mercurial Russian star Marat Safin has shelved retirement plans and recommitted to the Hopman: “I’m pleased to confirm my participation in Hopman Cup. It will be special to play with my sister, and I hope we can challenge for the Trophy”.

Tournament Director Paul McNamee said, “Although we are disappointed about Serena not being able to make it, we are delighted Marat Safin will be here. What an outstanding combination he and his sister are”.

Two time Champion James Blake will now be partnered by Meghann Shaughnessy who last year played the first Hopman match for USA, where she defeated Sania Mirza of India. Meghann, winner of six singles and 15 doubles titles on the WTA Tour has had an injury plagued year but retains a special WTA singles ranking of 50.

USA will remain the top seeds for this year’s Hyundai Hopman Cup. Blake, a two time Hopman Champion has spent the last few years ensconced in the world’s top 10 with a career high ranking of 4. He finished the year as the world number 10. The Russian brother/sister combination of world number 3 Dinara Safina and dual Grand Slam Champion Marat Safin will fill the number 2 position and be seeded to meet the USA in the Final.

USA is the most successful nation in the 20-year history of the Hopman Cup having been victorious five times.

The French team of Gilles Simon and Alize Cornet (world ranking 16) could however be the form team after Simon’s sensational run at the ATP Masters in Shanghai where he reached the semi-finals and catapulted to a year end ranking of 7. They will open the tournament against Chinese Taipei who won the recent Asian Hopman Cup to take up the final spot in the field. France are the third seeds and Australia, with former world number 1 Lleyton Hewitt and Western Australia’s Casey Dellacqua, will retain the fourth position. There will be no change to the schedule.

The Hyundai Hopman Cup XXI Teams revised field and schedule is:

The Hyundai Hopman Cup is the Official Mixed Teams Championship of the International Tennis Federation, and has come to be regarded as the world’s most prestigious invitational tournament. It is a round robin tournament, consisting of two groups of four teams where all teams play each other once with the winners of each group progressing to the Final.

The 21st Hyundai Hopman Cup will be played at the Burswood Dome from 3 – 9 January 2009. It will be televised on ABC and Fox Sports.

Safin bruised after Moscow fight
Marat Safin
Safin has slipped to number 29 in the world rankings

Former world number one Marat Safin took to the court in Perth on Sunday sporting cuts and bruises on his face as the result of a fight in Moscow.

The Russian, playing at the Hopman Cup, admitted after his win over Simone Bolelli, "I got in trouble in Moscow."

He added: "It's OK, I can survive. Just some small problem that I wasn't in the right place at the right time. Yes, I won the fight. I'm good, I'm OK."

Safin, 28, arrived on Saturday night and asked for a tournament doctor.


http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/45344000/jpg/_45344111_safin_ap2_226.jpg
Tournament director, Paul McNamee, said: "I wasn't sure why he was arriving so late, why he was requesting to play a day later, but now I know why.

"I saw him in the lobby and he didn't look good. He said, 'I need two things, I need to see a doctor and I need to practice.'

"So I got the doctor and he gave him some treatment and then Safin went and practiced."

Despite the bruises, world number 29 Safin combined with his sister, Dinara Safina, to give Russia a win over Italy.

Safin hit 14 aces on his way to a 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 win over Bolelli, after Safina beat Flavia Pennetta 7-5 6-3.

"My serve saved my game today," said Safin. "I couldn't ask for a better start than that."
