Here is the Google interpretation.
Several years ago, retired from sports, the famous tennis player and not less famous ladies' man Marat Safin is not retired to spend his millions on the southern resorts or to engage in collecting rare butterflies. Name Safin does not cease to appear in the pages of the tabloids: For some time he served as vice president of Tennis Federation and Olympic Committee, Advisor to the President, continuing as before, the haunt the hearts of millions vozdyhatelnits.
The list of his achievements the most beautiful romantic bride in Moscow, but the "ringed" 31-year-old 193-centimeter-long Marat did not anyone else. Press cemented his image amateur riotous partying and bizarre antics. But Safin has long been indifferent to the rumor, whether it's time to win Grand Slam tournaments or working life in the Olympic Committee. Now the former "first racket of the world," added tennis hockey, moved from T-shirts to suits and went to a win the new arena. In an interview with Marat MainPeople told about the line "marital status" pink "Porsche" with rhinestones and future plans, once again proving that there is life after tennis.
Marat, in an interview, your mentor, the famous Shamil Tarpishchev, said, "Marat Safin is not revealed until the end." Do not you think it's too early retired?
Life is long, you can manage to open up in other things. Maybe in tennis did not work, get in the other. Although I did not open until the end, the results were good. I'm not offended. Shamil Tarpishchev good specialist and disassembled in tennis, his assessment is, of course, important.
You just decided it was time to leave?
Yes. Because sports injuries received, I realized that I could no longer play at that level where it should. In addition, there are new players who are faster, stronger, and fight them in 70% of the forces is impossible. So you start to rebuild in a different direction, preparing for a new life.
What wins out of your athletic career do you consider yourself to the most significant?
Each victory, starting with children's tennis, is important because it is a step toward a new stage. This is sort of a step on which you climb higher and higher. Of course, I can point out the victory, which everyone knows - a victory over Roger Federer Pete Sampras or, for example. They are important, but this is the final stage, which I was all those years I played tennis and won in small tournaments. There were unimportant matches, but not such a high level. They were less noticeable, but in my life were very important because it helped to achieve what I achieved in the long run.
Do not miss your sports career and the endless training? Still, most of his life in such a rhythm.
No. When doing this 25 years old, still a bit tired. It's hard work, but you're not that fresh. The fact is that when you're young, you have several different vision of life you aspire to something specific and do not know how difficult it will be this way. You just go through it. Then you begin to understand, understand, and it appears that you have already got used to it. But over the years is getting harder and harder to motivate yourself to spend the same hours as a child to be in excellent shape, ready for each new season. Over the years, a day job begins to weigh.
Often on the court you very violently expressing their emotions. Racket broke, for example. It was a PR
element or pure emotion?
Everyone throws in their own emotions. You just do not see how other athletes get nervous! For example, McEnroe once in the room yelled at the judge had called dirty words, smashed all the bottles at his table, packed up and left the court. So compared to them, I - a child.
In mid-June in Moscow with the support of EBV tournament was held with the participation of world stars of tennis, "Legends of Tennis 2011". How can you evaluate this event?
I believe that everything was swell, except for some nuances. Still, this is the first event of this level and scale. Without them, no way. Finalized. The whole idea is excellent, everyone enjoyed it, no one complained. We tried our best to be good, so the guys have paid the right money. In addition, they came and supported by respected people of our country, and most importantly, that everyone was happy.
Marat, unfortunately, recently Russian athletes do not show the best results. It's not about tennis and the sport in general. Why is this happening? What is missing Russian sport to be at a high level?
The question is rhetorical. All of his set, everyone knows what must be the answer, but nobody is ready to make such sacrifices. Look what happened: in the 90's the Soviet Union collapsed, there was no new infrastructure, training centers for young children was not, and all the coaches and professional athletes have gone abroad. That is, we lost everything that you need to educate the next generation in sports. Hence arose a failure in 7-10 years. Did nothing to save sports, no one can stop this collapse, unable to create the conditions to raise a young athlete.
Now the country is changing, building new facilities, sports events held to raise children. For example, in Sochi, Kazan, Moscow. I'm not talking about Siberians, and they build as they can. So little by little it should get better, but this takes time. We'll have to wait, unfortunately, another 5 - 10 years to reach the same positions in which we were before the recession.
Do you believe that we have a chance again in the future to take the lead?
If we focus on the children's sports, for young people, then, of course. Children who are 10-12 years, 10 years later would be just at that age, to represent our country in various sports. That's why now is a very important period for our country, which is important not to lose again and do not push the development for several years, so long as we live, we can see how Russia will win.
You're not thinking about coaching?
To do this, I would have burst. I do not have as much opportunity and time to do it. But I am fully in control of the process of training the guys who go out of junior tennis professional. I find the money, I watch them, send in fees, competitions, gear engaged, it is assumed the functions of managers.
Which of the current tennis players can you name your favorites?
I have respect for those people who have proven themselves, who went to school 90's, when there was nothing - no money, no infrastructure, no opportunities to go when there was complete hopelessness. For example, Elena Dementieva, Anastasia Myskina, Eugene Kafelnikov, Alexander Volkov, and many others. I can not mention our girls - Masha Sharapova, Anna Kournikova - athletes who represented or represent Russia and win. From the guys who? Kolya Davydenko and Igor Andreev graduate career, Misha South has almost thirty ... I'm afraid of not remembering and not want to offend anyone. I respect those people who took the serious school. But this generation is already leaving, and the young leave much to be desired. Only when Dima Tursunov.
Who on the world stage in the coming years will take steps pedestals?
Of our young sportsmen and Don Kuznetsov. But in general the next year or two or three new names to appear. Because of my age generation - born 1980-1982 - also is leaving.
We can not ask how things have Dinara after retiring from the sport?
Normal. She has a serious spinal injury, so she took a timeout. Hopefully, next year she again tries his hand, will try to come back. But most importantly - this, of course, health.
In Russia, the now fashionable to right living, do not eat meat, do yoga. Do you have any special "rules" of life?
It's not trendy, it's - right! But everything in moderation. After stringent diet, for example, is like a time bomb in any case when a burst. Why? You just need the right attitude toward food, drinks. Need to know when to stop and not go for too many sacrifices.
How to keep fit outside of a professional career?
I run, play hockey, soccer, tennis sometimes.
And in the gym?
No. I lived there for 15 years, I was out there hard, depression begins.
At a press conference after the end of athletic career, you said that you expect - you will not wait, when the time comes a life after sports. Here it came. Now you've served as vice president of Tennis Federation and Olympic Committee, Advisor to the President. This is what you wanted?
Not yet. Simply, there are life stages. My first career was over, and it was important not to lose themselves after her, so she moved smoothly into another. In 30 years you can not do nothing. It is necessary to do something, to grow and learn. Should be interesting, meaningful and, most importantly, desire. If it is, you need to plan not only for a career and for life.
Some of our athletes, for example, Alina Kabaeva, Svetlana Khorkina went into politics. I have not thought about a career in politics?
If necessary, I am always ready.
A socially useful activities do you do? Charity, for example.
Here, we have so much charity! We all have charities ... Our country is a very delicate subject, it must be treated carefully.
Often, more PR
than the desire to do good deeds ...
You yourself answered this question.
Marat, you are the editor of tennis. It's a hobby or something more serious?
At first a hobby, because I do not know, go or not. I used to have the magazine "Tennis +", which, unfortunately, almost "dead." Now we come to the idea of making a new journal in another format. If the reader will like it, will naturally develop.
This completes the works, and move on to more interesting matters. Tell me, when did you know that are using popular with the female?
When he started something of a present to the court - in Spain, 18 years.
I do not think that in 14-15 years you did not like girls ...
And I was not allowed to communicate with them. I had to concentrate on tennis. "Up to no good would bring,'ll go astray with these women," and so delee (laughs). So men, by the way, die earlier than women.
It's good that there are a number of someone to whom you can blame everything! Like any star, you are surrounded by a lot of rumors, attributed to countless novels - Dasha Zhukova, Elena Korikovoy, Anastasia Osipova, attributed to illegitimate children, etc. Which of these rumors - is not it?
Children I had and still do not. Relationship - yes, there were - with someone longer with someone shorter. By the way, "Porsche" with rhinestones, I do not. And then there was also a rumor.
And the myth that only likes blondes Safin - also a lie?
Of course! Love all (laughs)!
By the way, half the girls Russia is concerned about why this eligible bachelor is still without a bride?
The bride is.
What are your plans for the next five years? Are you going to promote tennis and you want to do with family life?
One does not interfere. I am a multi-specialist (laughs). Doing everything that I like and try to do as little as possible of unnecessary movements, and to allow time for good, and for pleasure. A must-do in tennis. He gave me a lot, I have to pay him handsomely.
You occasionally see at social events, although not as often as other stars. Do you like fun?
Who does not love? Only it should be no extreme, it is hard on the next day.
And much prefer to walk?
Wherever there are friends. You can sit anywhere, the most important thing - that was a good company.
