Q. Should the No. 1 rivalry in men's tennis become you and Roger , do you think the American people would accept that and embrace it, because there wouldn't be an American involved? What do you think about that? ...(once)
MARAT SAFIN: Why? Roddick is there.
Q. But he wouldn't be involved in it. It would be you and Roger . You'd be the two big guys.... (twice)
MARAT SAFIN: Well, thank you very much for the compliment. But still, you know, is like another top players that they won't let me do this. And also Roger , being in the top of the game, because they want to be also there, because it's the real sweet spot. Everybody wants to get there.
And I think Roddick , he has the potential to be there. That's why he changed the coach. I think he's doing pretty well. He's really, really dangerous at any surfaces. So won't be so easy, unfortunately.
Q. But he wouldn't be involved in this scenario that I just created. It would be you and Roger . ...(Three times)
MARAT SAFIN: I'm satisfied with that. For me, it's fine.
Q. Do you think the American people would be satisfied with it, to have a leading rivalry without an American ? ... (Four times!!!)
MARAT SAFIN: I have a lot of Russians behind me.
...Can journalist ask four times followed the same stupidity?...well, yes!!! he can...
