Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

John McEnroe (USO 02, after Marat’s 1st rnd victory over Kiefer): “And now you know why the men’s game wants a Safin. What he’s got… what he brings to the table, he brings a lot. If they market him properly, you’d see some big things for the men’s game.”

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

From: Australian Tennis Magazine, 2000 (Here Come the Gladiators – Marat voted #1 Hottest Male Tennis Player!


1. Marat Safin
Simply the best-looking male player on the planet, possibly the best-looking male as well. A true gladiator, a perfectly proportioned being and a tennis equivalent to Leo Tolstoy if only he could get that temper under control. Still, great champions should possess a healthy dose of madness and Marat needs to smash racquets the way some people need to crack their knuckles.
He is also extremely dry-witted and gives entertaining interviews. At the Tennis Masters Series in Toronto (which he won), he explained his addiction to racquet smashing. “Sometimes, you need this. And I think the people, they understand this. Because we are human beings and we need to try to break it because it’s only a racquet, it’s nothing else. But I know it’s not very nice on the court. It doesn’t look very, I would say, very educated.”
Some of Safin’s shots look like they might make holes in the court. In a few years time, when he has collected a number of Grand Slam titles, he will be shattering many women’s hearts as well.

Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

Lleyton Hewitt: “The game needs a guy like him. He's a great personality for our game…”

"He's one of the best players around when he's on," Hewitt said. "He has the perfect physique for tennis. He's got every shot in the book and has a great personality for the game of tennis. It's disappointing that he's hardly been able to play, basically since the Aussie Open [in January]."

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

Is it uncommon to enjoy having parties in tennis world?

"No. There is a night life on the tour. We are not in bed at 9 h 30 watching a late nignt show on TV5! But Marat is able to sleep late before the day of his match as long as he can get up late. He can move forward his day like that. It's another philosophy and I like it. It's very rare that he loose a match because he is tired from a late night out. The risk is more about his mental fatigue... to blow fuses. When he's irritated, he really is."-Marc Rosset
