Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

Q. What was your first response when you heard the comment that you're like Russians: win one year and celebrate the next?

MARAT SAFIN: It's a lot of smart people in the world. It's good. It's good to have so many smart people. It's very good. I am happy for them.

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"The journalist asks me: "Do you drink?" Our conversation took place during the tournament, plus it was the tournament where I was playing for the first time. Was that serious to ask me that? So I answered, in a joke: - I do. - Do you smoke? - I don't. - Did you go some place here? - I did. - What did you drink? - Whisky... That was the funny conversation we had. And then I found out from the newspaper that I liquor up every day. What I just can't understand is how did I manage to have enough strength for seven matches, three of which, with Kuerten, Agassi and Pioline, were five sets matches..."

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"I'm satisfied with my life. I'm satisfied with my age. Maybe my brain is a little bit less than 21 years old, but I think that makes me feel good. I'm happy with this."

"I can't live in the United States - I'd kill myself. "It's not my style of life, it's not the country for me. They don't even let me drink a beer in this country. I was born in Moscow. Then I went to Spain and my life is like a festival everyday."

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"I think for me it's difficult because I'm also scared of flying, yes. I have this paranoia. No, it affects me. Not tennis, it affects myself. Every time I go in the plane, sometimes I'm too scared. is difficult. But I'm taking sleeping pills, so is okay."

"I don't understand this. So why we don't -- why we don't put any fines to the chair umpires when they make easiest mistakes? If I would lose, I would lose because of this guy. The machine doesn't work, but I think he has an ear, no?"

"I'm coming here to play tennis, not just to fight with the chair umpire."

"We were playing great tennis and the guy just, he wants to show off. I don't know what is his problem."

"I cannot talk to the person with sunglasses... he should talk to me with respect like I am talking to him."

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"That is a question without any answer. He says yes but, you know, Yevgeny has like seven Fridays in a week."

"I think Goran, he was like this since the beginning. He didn't just become crazy when he was on ATP. He was already like this when he was young, the same like me, yes. Yes, I was like this already. I think it's a question of parents. Normally the father, if he's a big fighter, normally you become crazy. You smash racquets, you know, you get crazy on the court like your parents."

"Everybody. Everybody's great. We all get along. We go out to dinner or the bars, I get along with everyone. That's the thing with men's tennis. We compete. Then we leave the court and we are friends. We go to eat, we go to bars. Just because I play you in a match, I have to hate you? No."

"He's (Santoro) the only person in this world who can beat me - no, I mean who beat me five times in a row without any problems. This is the only one who can drive me crazy on the court like he did already for two years.

"Being told I am having to play Santoro is like being told I am going to die."

"Today I break racquets, for tomorrow we die."

"Ya, i choked. But you know, shit happends"

"just...the problem is that you have to pay after you break the racket. (laughter) you have to pay a fine. no, no, they say thank you, you are doing well."

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

You`re welcome I have some more ones, but will post them maybe later, when i have more time.

Cant agree more. I was pissed when Agassi won the award for 2002 Marat is the only man who should win this award

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"I would not have a bet on myself"

"I can't understand it. "You get to spend 24 hours a day around me. That should be hard to resist, shouldn't it?"

"If the crowd is like this with me tomorrow, I have no chance to be somebody in the world. "Maybe I'll wear a sign on my head that says, 'I'm Marat Safin.'"
