Butter is back to weigh in on Marat’s current affairs

Where is my favorite Russian? Hmmm… His body is not into tennis (shoulder injury forced a withdrawal from Madrid, replaced by lucky loser Simone Bolelli), and, as everyone has found out recently, his head isn’t there either:

Instead, he’s been knockin back brewskies with some pretty ruskies, specifically pop singer Nastya Osipova.

What do you think? I almost fell off my chair when I watched this! haha… Is it just me, or do we all miss the Dasha-Marat era? I do! I know Tony Kornheiser does! What about the Silvia-Marat love story? Well, like Marat said before:

“If you date blondes for a long time, you would want a brunette. You have to have variety in life! (laughs). Besides, it really doesn’t matter, it needs to be interesting and not boring.” (Marie Claire Russia, 2007)

So don’t worry, Rich, we might not have to stare at Ms. Osipova’s dresses for too much longer. Who’ll be Marat’s next brunette? Ana Ivanovic?

Could he really do it?

Butter’s Bubble

Marat Safin won his 3rd round Wimbledon match against Andreas Seppi, 7-6, 3-6 ,6-7, 6-4. Is it still shocking that he won another match? It’s so hard to feel confident to watch him play these days.

If Safin could escape another match, he could face Marcos Baghdatis or Feliciano Lopez! The latter ousted Marat during their 3rd round match in Wimbledon back in 2005.

Remember this? lol….

Mario Ancic and Roger Federer are also in the same section of the draw as Marat, so he’ll need all the luck he can get. As much as I love to see Marat go deep into the tournament, I have to be realistic. His chances are kinda slim.
