Prescient Marat

"He came and said, "Sorry." I don't know why he said sorry, because he apparently ‑‑ because it was so easy. But the guy tried everything. He tried his best tennis, but I played pretty good and just told him that he gonna be great player ‑ and he will be. I mean, he is young. He is 17 years old, turning 18 this year. He has great potential, and I wish him all the best because he is gonna have a very long career, I hope for him, if he continues this way and he continues to working hard. Just I wish him all the best. That's what I said to him."
-Safin after beating Djokovic 60 62 61, 1st rd, Austalian Open 2005.


Always neat to look back

will see Davis cup will show if he will destroy Safin i think Safin will get a set at minimum but i have a feeling he will actually win

Safin - Agassi - Kafelnikov - Kuerten -Soderling - Davydenko - Santoro -Edberg - Novak - Nalbandian - Ivanisevic
You dealin' with a few true villains
Federer - Wawrinka - Nishikori - Del Potro - Mayer - Rublev - Youzhny - Khachanov - Andrey Kuznetsov- Safiullin - Karatsev

Re: Prescient Marat

I remember watching this match...I knew at the time that Nole was gonna be a great player too.

Marat played awesome though.
