Safin should not coach anyone. His attitude history is hardly something to look up to, he openly said he wouldn't be able to travel all year round and i feel that is something players need these days and honestly? I don't think he would offer anything useful to the young players anyway.

Only interested in coaching male players? I kind of want him to coach Garbine, but that is very unlikely to happen.

But I think they have a similar athletic build, playstyle, and maybe similar attitude at times. Think he speaks Spanish also.

Really ?? He actually won majors. Beat Pete Sampras in his own backyard when he was 20 years old. He achieved something. The young players these days celebrate a great shot like as if they have won a major. Surely they can learn something from him.

A guy who beat Sampras, Federer and Djokovic and won 2 Grand Slams has nothing to offer?

Yeah, what a loser mentally. Explains how he lost all those 5 setters at AO............................

Please do not discuss tennis.



You would think that Safin was a mental midget looking at how people talk about him.

Safin coaching someone is like Kyrgipose giving Anger Management classes.

A frigging joke.

Safin will never succeed as a coach, if he ever starts that career and I doubt he has the patience for it, because he is lazy, stupid, and too in love with himself to help some other player.
didn't know that you know Safin in person.

otherwise an overly bold statement from a keyboard warrior.

You still upset about that other thread?

I can't help it if I beat your arguments down every time with impeccable logic.

Instead of guessing whether I know Safin, ask yourself if you know ANY pro you've been commenting here for the past year...

You don't, right?

I rest my case.

Again I refute your flawed logic.

as you are following me so close, please show me when I made similar statements about professional players.
something like player X is lazy, stupid.
if you can't then it just proves that you are a keyboard warrior.

I am not interested in what exactly you wrote, that isn't the issue. The point is that you've commented on players you've never met hence you are being hypocritical.

congrats keyboard warrior.
you're getting better at typing countless words in texts that shall look smart but in fact bear little to no sense.

P.S.
I'm still waiting for examples where my posts where disrespectful towards pro players.
Till then, I'll ignore your posts.

You ignoring my posts is actually good news. More time for me to reply to relevant posters...

PS Do you even know what a keyboard warrior is? Google it. Learn something.

Ignoring the nuance of commentary not being exclusively tied to character appraisal, is the supposed hypocrite wrong?

Hilarious.

Have you even bothered to read the whole conversation between me and blablabla user?

Clearly not.

Oh, the irony...
Erm, yes.

Perhaps some gratitude for your answering my question would suffice at illuminating some understanding of irony you've scoffed at the absence of.

NOW you replied, after you finally went back and read the whole thing...

And no, I am not at all pleased that you put so little of the usually flowery Dawson's Creek prose into your recent replies to me.

As a crook in Putin's Duma, a lot.

Being a great player does not always translate to great coaching. It's not just about skills and experience, it's about communication skills and dedication.

It was hardly War & Peace, so I don't know why you're so incredulous as to my digestion of your ineptitude in addressing a legitimate point against your judgement thus far.

Ah, finally you make the effort to decorate your posts in the usual needless word-salad dressings... That's more like it. I love to be amused.

War and Peace is what you're trying to emulate here...? Just know that all the great writers avoided glittery flowery word-salad prose, as that was always considered overkill, bad taste, insecurity, showing off, needless...

My bafflement at your general incompetence extends to your inference that I'm trying to emulate War & Peace in some capacity. Such a bizarre conclusion can only suggest a cerebral oblivion with respect to comprehension of the obviously applied concept of referencing a work significantly opposed to your own with regards to word count so as to illustrate the absurdity of questioning the timely reading of your excrement.

I am surprised that your mental defficiencies have not adequately returned to what I can only assume to have been remotely tolerable in light of your amusement of late. I suppose there's a lesser possibility of an overdose with mirth compared to the hallucinogens required to champion the trends of a nefarious timewaster with a straight face, so by all means continue the merriment. No doubt the 'hilarity' of your continued dismissing of points on the basis of your failure to understand them should suit the cause. I might even dabble in some passive intake myself since it's going gratis.

"Cerebral oblivion"?

Was that a typo? Random thesaurus glue-togethering?...

Try better flower-glue next time.

If Safin tells a young player to move closer to the baseline when returning a second serve and to attack it, that's probably good advice. Most young guys are camping 6 feet behind the baseline and trying to run everything down. I'm pretty sure if he could even make the slightest difference to help any player, that's a good coach.
