Doesnít that bother you?
Marat: In general, no. True, it is unpleasant, when youíre sitting with your friends, and a complete stranger approaches you and starts lecturing, ďyou didnít do that right, the serve has weakened, couldnít collect yourself in the last set...Ē
And what do you do? Get up and slack íem on the neck?
Marat: No, I say, ďThanks a lot; Iíll try to play better next time.Ē
You have a stiff self-control.
Marat: They teach us that. And also, often, someone approaches me in the street and starts, ďYouíre Safin? No, are you really Safin? No, youíre probably kidding, you just look like Safin...Ē Thatís why when they ask me who I am, I usually say that Iím Safinís cousin.
Thatís because youíre modest?
Marat: Thatís because itís stupid to try to prove that youíre you. And life is too short for spending it on every trifle thing.
Marat Safin - always the one and only
