They tried to reach Marat in Moscow but couldn't b/c he had already left, so they got a hold of Marat's dad. Nothing groundbreaking, really. His dad said that, yes they were together at some point, but obviously aren't anymore. He said not to ask Marat about Dasha b/c Dasha doesn't exist as far as Marat is concerned. Whatever happened is in the past. He also said that he knew her and had "no comment" about her, but has no regrets about the fact that they aren't together anymore (he said the last part "as a father"). It really sounds more negative then it should, I don't have the best translation skills
, and the english connotations for the phrases that he uses are far more negative then what I think he intended. At the end, the article alleges that they broke up because Dasha was jealous of an Italian girl during a vacation in Tucsany. I don't know how reliable this source is though...but all those Italian references in the blog would make sense now
According to the other article, Marat said that Dasha doesn't concern him, they broke up and are grown up people, so they both can do whatever they want to do.
It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who.
~Marat Safin, summarizing his career
he kinda reminds me of me, he feels obligated to have every sentence be a joke
and he takes his clothes off when he sees a camera
it's a little pathetic
it's like his first reaction
