AUSTIN, August 17, 2007 – SideSpin Productions announces the launch of its “Marat Safin Pro Shop Poster Promotion,” beginning this week. SideSpin will ship the posters to more than 600 pro shops in the U.S. to support the recent release of the company’s DVD, “Sharing a Laugh with Marat Safin.”

The DVD offers a personal and incisive view of one of the most enigmatic figures in professional tennis. “Sometimes all you hear is a quick sound bite from Marat,” says Tom Suhler, one of the co-hosts of the interview DVD. “But in this extended interview you see a bright and introspective Safin, who views his position as an international sports celebrity as just one portion of his life.”

The poster incorporates some of Marat’s more colorful quotes and lists some of his more remarkable tennis accomplishments, including:
- 15 professional titles;
- 2 Grand Slam championships
- 5 Masters event shields, and
- and impressive won/lost record against Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and James Blake.


The DVD contains the interview, which runs 22 minutes, plus two very nice extras. There is an extended “Fan Cut” that runs 33 minutes and includes comments from Marat’s former coach and Grand Slam Champion Mats Wilander. Viewers will also find “The Golden Bagel Award Story” featuring the inaugural award presentation to Roger Federer. SideSpin Productions, Inc. honors the top male tennis pro who delivers the most “bagels” (6-0 sets), to his opponents throughout the year. You can go to the Golden Bagel Award™ website www.goldenbagelaward.com to learn more about the irreverent award.
