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.
