You tell them, Marat!

There was hillarious mini-interview with Safin on Russian TV today (well, it was taken on Sunday but they showed it today).
Marat was asked what he thought about Davydenko's words. (After his loss Davydenko said that it was very difficult for him to switch from Beijing hardcourts to clay and that clay court was chosen only because of Safin).
Safin said (well, it's not the exact quote but more or less close to what he said):

It's not a secret he [Davydenko] likes money so maybe it's part of the problem.
And choosing clay court was the whole team's decision, I was ready to play on any surface. Of course, he was frustrated after the loss and preferred to blame other person rather than himself... But you know what, if it's so important, ok, you can blame me. I'm ready to be blamed for everything as long as it helps our team win.

Well said, Marat.

Davy is a cretin and hopefully will be banned from tennis.

Re: You tell them, Marat!

Why does everyone want Davydenko to be banned from tennis?

Re: You tell them, Marat!

Davydenko is one of the best players in the world and again in Davis cup he loses. Pathetic. Why pick clay for Marat - he's not very good on it?

Seriously, he's not that good on clay anymore since he doesn't like the long rallies. Funny interview though

Oh Marat, how I miss your quotes.

Is he done with his mountain climbing adventure yet?

Re: You tell them, Marat!

Marat on clay has always been somewhat overrated. But pick it for Andreev if nothing else - he is a godsend to that team to give them depth on clay.

I'm surprised Davydenko still turns out for Russia - it doesn't seem like he's integrated into the team and there's all this talk of him trying to get into Austria. Appearance money perhaps?

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
