What's Up With Marat Safin?

No offense to American Bobby Reynolds, but the journeyman qualifier had no business ousting Marat Safin in the first round of the Sony Ericsson Open in a third set breaker.

Marat is beloved by virtually everybody. But I think it's time he become a bona fide celebrity and give up tennis. If he wants to have a decent legacy, that is.

Some say he's the most naturally gifted tennis player in the game. But he hasn't won a title since.... um.... well.... hmmmmm.... the 2005 Australian Open.

He needs a new day job. Or another mountain adventure.
