Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

There was one hour interview with Marat on russian tennis channel. I saw only the end of it. They talked about kids and Marat said again that he doesn't want his kids to play tennis. He also said that small kids these days are too smart "4 years old kids they talk with you, ask you questions, they understand everything" In the end presenter said she hopes to see Marat again in the same studio as a tennis official and Marat answered yeah, I'll be sitting here all pretty and with a big belly

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

Yesterday I came across an old radio interview (April 2008) in Russian, which was very funny, and very Marat-ish. I'll try to translate some of the pearls:

Question from listeners: "Does it hurt, when the ball hits you in the head?"
Marat: "It hurts more on other places"

Asked about Misha's incident hitting his head with his racket, Marat says that he with his breaking rackets is old-fashioned now

Asked when he started playing tennis, Marat says that he was very little. He was driven in a stroller first, then given a tiny little racket and started playing

Discussing what's easier to play sports or to study, Marat is convinced that the sportsmen have the easier job. One of the radio hosts says "But the athletes somewhat study, too!", Marat:"Well, somewhat doesn't count" LOL

Talking about the eating regime etc., Marat: "I do not have a tendency to be obese. I am thankful to my parents that it turned out like this"

Host: Do you get up early easy?
Marat: Yesterday went to bed at 12, so that I could wake up at 8, but at 3 wake up scared, because the tap made noise. After that couldn't fall asleep and had to take a pill (laughs)

Talking about the sudden inspections by doping control, he said that once in Petersbourg four guys knocked on his door at 8 a.m. and scared him (laughs)

At the end of the interview a listener asks, whether he meets his sister. Marat -> stunned and laughing.
Next question: "Do you like spending time with her?". Marat: "Who asks those questions?!!!?????"

The whole thing is hilarious. Thanks for the laughter, Marat

Annoushka and Irochka, remember the guy at the stadium, who was shouting "Rossiya", well Marat knows him too

[COLOR=RoyalBlue]
И для него воскресли вновь
И божество, и вдохновенье,
И жизнь, и слезы, и любовь.

I think that anyone who's ever watched Kremlin Cup knows the guy.

that sounds very funny, old tennis veterans playing with young woman ............
great idea, should be do this in europe too, would love to watch it, and please with team-coaching .....

just one note: I have in my ears something like I need big holiday / break for some month.... and than maybe some Senior-Tour matches , but this sounds different.....

Safin fans. Marat will be on the cover of this month's Tennis magazine.




The Magical Misery Tour
After more than a decade on tour, Marat Safin pulls the plug on his career. We look back at his soaring highs and comical lows.

Also attaching the People magazine story on Marat when he won USO 2002.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
