Re: Favourite Marat Quotes
Marat talking about Dinara's match against Serena at the USO
"Come on, she's 16 years old. When I was 16, I was playing satellites in Spain. I was staying in a hotel for $15 a night. I had breakfast like, I don't know, like normal kids. Every 16-year-old guy is just starting to play satellites, not even close. They're playing national tournaments, which is -- it's the lowest thing in the world. Yeah... And she's playing 16 years old, playing Serena, No. 1 in the world, center court and the people are watching. You play satellites, the people, they don't even watch. They have no lines men even"
Did you tell her that?
"Yeah, of course. She was pissed because of, I don't know, she could have done much better and all this. Of course, she's really ambitious, but, you know, you have to calm down. You have to come back to reality. She start the year, she's 400. Now she's Top 100. She's complaining, it's not normal."
