Welcome to the Marat Safin Forum.

Our primary focus is the tennis-player, Marat Safin - his contemporary exhibition tournaments and current activities - together with many older posts about his previous professional tennis-playing career.

However, if you want to talk tennis in general - ATP, WTA, Fed Cup, Davis Cup, Champions Series or just travel down memory lane, there is room for you here. We will meet up with you in "Other Tennis Topics".

In between tennis, you can have on-site conversations about other sports, music, poetry, books, films and much more in "Personal Discussions".

As far as we know, it's Marat's real twitter account. When he first went on Twitter, Dinara tweeted the news on her twitter page and let everyone know what his twitter account was.

She said:

"So let's all officially welcome my brother @safin_marat1 on twitter!!! So u see guys I finally convinced him to join twitter!!!"

Safin Nominated for Hall of Fame

NEWPORT, R.I., October 23, 2015 - Marat Safin, a two-time major champion and former world No. 1 on the ATP World Tour, Justine Henin, a former WTA Tour world No. 1 and seven-time major champion and Helena Sukova, who won 14 major titles in doubles and mixed doubles, have all been nominated for induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

All three are nominated in the Recent Player Category for induction in the Class of 2016. . . .

Marat Safin commented, "To be part of a Hall of Fame is every athlete's dream. It is a great honor to have my tennis career recognized in this way, and I am proud to represent Russian tennis with this nomination for such a prestigious honor in our sport."

Safin, 35, of Russia, is a two-time Grand Slam tournament champion. He was No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings for nine weeks, and was in the world Top 5 for 119 weeks. Safin was regarded as a power player with strong ground strokes and a particularly dangerous backhand.

Safin won his first major title at the 2000 US Open, when he defeated Pete Sampras. He is the first and only Russian man to have won the title. Safin went on to win the 2005 Australian Open with a victory over Lleyton Hewitt, defeating then world No. 1 Roger Federer in a five-set battle en route to the final.

Safin won 15 singles titles. In addition to his Grand Slam tournament titles, he won five ATP Masters 1000 tournaments. He compiled a career record of 422-267.

Safin was an integral member of the Russian Davis Cup team for 11 years. In 2002, he was instrumental in leading Russia to defeat France for their first Davis Cup victory. In 2006, he won the deciding rubber against Argentina to claim the title for Russia again.

Since retiring from the ATP World Tour, Safin has served on the Russian Olympic Committee and has worked with the Russian Tennis Federation. In 2011, he was elected to serve in the Russian Federal Parliament. . . .

Moscow - Former world number one and two-time Grand Slam winner Marat Safin announced Thursday that he was stepping down as a lawmaker in the Russian parliament after six years.

Safin, who retired from tennis in 2009 after winning the 2000 US Open and 2005 Australian Open titles, said that as a member of the sport's Hall of Fame, he would not have enough time to carry out his political duties.

"Yes, I sent a request to return my mandate (as an MP)," 37-year-old Safin told news agency TASS, confirming a story which had appeared on the Fontanka new site.

Safin represented ruling United Russia in the parliament after first being elected in 2011.http://m.sport24.co.za/sport24/Tennis/s ... t-20170525"

Marat Safin decided to lay down his deputy powers

According to the source, the motivated by his desire to relinquish the powers of the famous athlete is that he can not combine his social activities in international sports organizations with deputy work.

As the 37-year-old deputy states, he does not want to be torn between sports, public and representative activities. "Work in the seventh convocation of the State Duma, according to Safin, is different and requires more concentration on it," declared the deputy chairman of the United Russia faction Adalbi Shkhagoshev.

The deputy of the State Duma from United Russia, tennis player Marat Safin decided to surrender the mandate of the deputy. He said this to the Speaker of the Parliament, Vyacheslav Volodin. As transfers Championat.com, the Russian tennis player does not wish to be torn between sports, public and representative activity. According to Safin, he would prefer to do his job qualitatively and therefore surrenders the mandate.

Marat Safin is the 2-time winner of the Grand Slam series in the men's singles category: in 2000 he won the US Open, after 5 years - the Australian Open. In the previous 2016 Safin was reelected as part of the federal list of candidates nominated by the party "United Russia".

Thanks, vesna123456, for this news. It appears that Marat has no disagreement with the policies and practices of "United Russia", just wanting to spend more time on things related to sport.

МАРАТ САФИН ПОКА НЕ КОММЕНТИРУЕТ СВОЙ УХОД ИЗ ГОСДУМЫ РФ
MARAT SAFIN DOES NOT COMMENT HIS EXIT FROM THE STATE DUMA OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION


Помощница бывшего депутата от "Единой России" Марата Сафина сообщила "СЭ", что известный в прошлом теннисист пока не комментирует свой уход из Госдумы РФ. По ее словам, экс-первая ракетка мира сейчас находится во Франции на турнире "Большого шлема" Roland Garros. :) :wink:
Напомним, что бывший теннисист принял решение отказаться от депутатского мандата в связи с невозможностью совмещать работу в парламенте с общественной деятельностью в международных спортивных организациях.
Assistant former deputy from the "United Russia" Marat Safin told "SE" that the well-known tennis player in the past has not commented on his departure from the State Duma. As she said, the ex-first racket of the world now is in France at tournament "Grand Slam" Roland Garros.
Recall that the former tennis player decided to abandon the deputy mandate in connection with the inability to combine work in parliament with social activities in international sports organizations.
