Re: Marat Quotes / Quotes about Marat

That quote is quite common, I've heard it before from guys joking, and I've even heard it on a TV series - it has become a commonplace joke.

Re: Marat Quotes / Quotes about Marat

I found it moderately amusing - mainly because it was a contender for quote of the year, and if that's the best quote they could come up with...

Also because if those words ever did come out of his mouth, i'm sure it was tongue in cheek...

"My friend, there is nothing so sexy as a woman who is angry. Perhaps when she is even throwing things." MS

1. marat

When you can win a tennis grand slam without training, clubbing the night before, throwing a temper on court and smashing every single racket, then you will be granted the status of "marat".

In a condition of "marat", one is encouraged to give up when losing
In respect of the legendary russian tennis player Marat Safin
by Paul Bagguley Jan 29, 2004 share this

2. Marat

In tennis, when a player hits an excellent backhand down the line of the tennis court. One may shout, MAARRAAATT!! After hitting this stroke, similar to the shout of Russian tennis player Marat Safin.
Awesome Tennis Player
"Jim sucks at tennis, unlike the masterful Kevin."
Random Tennis Player
"Thats probably because he cant hit a marat, he should seriously consider quitting."

GOAT is also a good definition (same website)

Hey - it's just the same old sterotype Marat has had since pretty much day one , and which, lets face it - he never did much to dispel, so, please don't take it that seriously - it's a comedy take on Marat's more 'extreme' characteristics - I have to say I found it kind of funny....I was thinking the next time I am dealing with someone having a hissy fit over some trivial matter (something unfortunately for me I have to do more often that I think i should,) I might just shut them up by saying "Oh - for heaven's sake - STOP being such a MARAAAT!!!"

Re: Marat Quotes / Quotes about Marat

I always wondered how one (anyone, for that matter) is able to win a 5-set match (or few in a row), run for more than 3 hours without any training, no sleep and a drunken night, especially if the guy on the other side of the court is sleeping well, training all day etc.

It beats me

Indeed.

I agree... the writer tries to Marat... (it didn't come out quite right and he may not like it hehe as he wants to be remembered as a 'decent' and 'hardworking player ... -- hmmm -- yes, on top of the charm, look, smiles, quotes, ohh -- i can go on and on...)

Re: Marat Quotes / Quotes about Marat

Victoria Azarenka (vika7 on Twitter) posted a question about 20 hrs ago:

"ok the question...what is one extraordinary talent u wish to have?....... "

And she just answered with this:

"thanks guys for all ur answers! it was really fun! i like the one invisible so they could be around safin..i think its hilarious.."

too funny And it was the only answer, other than the one about her that she posted!

"My friend, there is nothing so sexy as a woman who is angry. Perhaps when she is even throwing things." MS
