“[Safin] is one of my favourite guys to play against, not because of our results, but from the human side. He's in the final and it's really nice to see. The whole tennis world is really happy to have him in the final, too.”
-- Roger Federer, pre-final 2004 Australian Open

"I have a lot respect for Marat, but that's not because of his tennis. It's because of his ways. The way that he is around the tennis court, the way that he says hello to all the players, the way that other players think he's conducted his life. There's an aura around him, too - a vibe that you get, that all the players get from him, that is very positive. In the locker room, he's a warm guy and people warm to him." -- Mats Wilander- 2004 Australian Open

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"Yet, he who is hailed as the game's great talent nominates his own candidate: Russian former No. 1 Marat Safin. So much power. So strong off both sides. An intimidating serve-and-groundstroke game that, compared with those of smaller stature, can seem so effortless. "He's got a lot of things in his game which can make him a great, great player, and this is for me talent." -Roger Federer 2004 Australian Open

Re: Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"He has certainly got enough game to be at the top for many years. It is up to him. Tennis is a tough sport and he has had some injury problems, but there is no question that he, with a handful of other young guys, is certainly going to be around the top for a long time."
"He is 6ft 5in (195.6cm) and moves like a guy who is 5ft 11 (180cm). He has got great coverage around the court. He is probably the fastest big guy in the game of tennis. He constructs points well and he has got the power to get himself back into a point when he is in a bad situation. Marat did all the right things at the right times. Andre had to climb a big hill and couldn't quite get there." -- Darren Cahill- 2004 Australian Open

Re: Re: Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"Fishing like was great. We were staying like eight hours a day on a boat, you know, just sitting with our beers. We had everything. Whatever you catch, we cook and we eat.
But the problem was I couldn't swim. Was great weather. But was okay. We had wine at the night, you know, with the dinner. So it was really, really good. Just make your mind a little bit relax. Just chill out. What else you can do?"

Re: Re: Re: Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

"Do something. I mean, spend a lot of hours sleeping, try to make a couple of massages tomorrow, I mean, one or two. Just try to recover, my legs, start to prepare myself for the final. Just do something. Go for a walk, for example. Enjoy the sight-seeing. I will find something. I went two days ago in the zoo. I had so much fun. I will find out something to do."
