It says but it's not part of his quote. Look:

“Bom dia a todos, é um prazer estar no Rio. Obrigado”, disse o tenista número um do mundo, Novak Djokovic, em bom português.

"Good morning everyone, it's a pleasure to be here in rio. Thank you", said the number 1 tennis player in the world, Novak Djoko, in good portuguese.

Nole didn't say it, it's the journalist.

Milos's deal.



Also Tursonov has a song in Russian on Sound Cloud -- which I didn't even know existed. It's about Tennis -- Or Teneees as it sounds in Russian.

I have heard, don't know if it's true, that planes and trains go between the cities.

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt2)

There are two types of trains in Russia: Express and Regular. Express trains are typical European high-speed inter-city trains. They run currently run between Moscow, St. Petersburg and Helsinki. The express trains that run from Moscow to St. Petersburg and from Nijniy Novogorod to Moscow are called "Sapsan" trains. There are from 5 to 10 daily departures of "Sapsan" train in each direction (depending on time of year; more in summer). "Sapsan" travel time from Moscow to St. Petersburg is about 4 hours. The express train from St. Petersburg to Helsinki is called "Alegro train. It takes about three hours to travel.

Express trains offer seating couches with a chose of 1st or 2nd class.

Second type of Russian trains is Regular trains. These are typical sleeping couches that service all other routes (and also overnight departures from Moscow to St. Petersburg). Sincere these trains are designed to travel longer distances they have beds instead of seats. There are three classes of beds. "SV", "KUPE", and "PLATKART", (1st, 2nd, and 3rd classes respectively).

I love trains. Trains are good. But Moscow is the real, chaotic Russia...

If I take the trans-siberian, do not watch the movie "Trans-Siberian" until after I am done, k?

I am being difficult.

I would choose St. Petersburg for the beauty. But, if you want more grit and more communist buildings Moscow is the place.

Cheaper = St. Pete

Friendlier more laid back = St. Pete

More of the Big City = Moscow

More 24 hr. life = Moscow.
