The organiser of China Open recently announced in their official website that they are planning to throw a party for Marat Safin who is about to retire end of this season.
The party is supposed to involve some hardcore Safinator fans.
However things didn't work out between the fans and the organiser.
Now, probably there'll be no ceremony after all. Maybe a 'fake' one, according to fino7marat, one of the fan who's involved in the issue.
SORRY, We are cheated by China OpenSorry to fino7marat and the rest of the Safinator fans. It must be a huge disappointment for you guys after all the brainstorming.
I apologize for making a new thread, but there is something really important to tell you.
Weeks ago I posted a thread about asking for ideas of marat's retiring ceremony, but things changed now.
I bet you have read the interview after round 1, and obviously Marat did not know about the ceremony.
A few days before I posted the idea thread, the organizer of China Open contacted our forum and said we would design the ceremony and we spent a long time trying to make our design better. But things going on changed thoroughly.
They only wanted the ceremony to last for onlt 5~7 mins and we, yes, argued with the organizer and the ceremony might last for 15 mins. that could be OK.
Oh, and the organizer said that all our designs as well as our hard work had gone to dustbin. They will design the ceremony.
Today, they told us the ceremony will last for only a few minutes and my friends were angry about that because they are not informed about the decrease of time.
They were not ever offered tickets for today's match. how much did my Friends helped the organizers to make it better!
OK, my friends showed their objection, saying that they will not take part in the ceremony which they devoted themselves to.
And the Organizer refused their demand to increase the ceremony time at last.
so there won't be a ceremony. that's ok, because marat doesn't want to have one.
Oh, they did not even contact with Marat before but they said that Marat was happy to have one, on the official website.
there won't be a ceremony. perhaps there will be a faked one.
True safinholics will not give marat our wishes but some faked ones who work for China Open may appear at the party.
I am just soooo sad now.
