Of all the remaining tournaments Marat has yet to play, PTT Thailand Open and the Kremlin Cup are the ones he haven't won yet in his lifetime. Safin once won China Open back in 2004, St. Petersburg twice in 2000 and 2001, Paris thrice in 2000, 2002 and 2004 (And he was a runner-up in 1999). Overall Marat chose to play the tournaments he holds dear to his heart. But let us not forget he was the runner-up twice in Moscow (2007 and 2008), and it is his hometown. Hopefully, his mates will allow him to clinch the victory this time.
Let's all be patient and don't forget to watch him on his final days of tennis!
Please tell if me I have overlooked anything of importance. Meanwhile, let us enjoy Marat's farewell tour to the highest extent.
