Oaf

So, let's see: fined for tanking at the AO, fined for refusing interview at FO...again, said he'd "never play again" at Wimby. Only the USO remains unscathed.

Oh well. On to the grass season for the Hippo and the Hipponymous.

Re: Safin to be fined for refusing post match interview

I like Marat - he has a personality. It's not a cuddly one sometimes but he's certainly not an ATP clone.

It's peanuts to him so who cares - if he don't wanna talk he don't talk

Unfortunately, this comes a day after his coach said that Marat was really focused and that he had a good chance of beating Gonzo.

Frustrating? Why frustrating? Why I have to be frustrating? Why?- Marat Safin

i just love your quotes!

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: Safin to be fined for refusing post match interview

Frankly speaking post match interviews are dumb,the questions are idiotic like:"Are you sad that you lost?"or"What happened today?" and it must really be hard for the players who lost,but the rules are rules and he has to respect them.

That seams to be a pretty accurate description of the situation around here.

Re: Safin to be fined for refusing post match interview

Maybe only the winners should be made to attend those interviews? The losers are sometimes too frustrated.
Some of them break rackets, swear on court, swear on themselves...To the point when they down't care that they will lose the next point as penalty. They are THAT frustrated...
You really expect someone like that to attend a post-match interview?

Safin is a serious guy, who isn't always impressed by the press. I imagine how annoying it is for him to go answer all the same stupid questions over and over... Especally after a loss.

Have none of you ever felt like being left alone? You want to be alone, but instead you're forced to go and describe how you feel to the whole wide world.

Anastasia Myskina, Marat Safin thank you.
