"He came and said, "Sorry." I don't know why he said sorry, because he apparently ‑‑ because it was so easy. But the guy tried everything. He tried his best tennis, but I played pretty good and just told him that he gonna be great player ‑ and he will be. I mean, he is young. He is 17 years old, turning 18 this year. He has great potential, and I wish him all the best because he is gonna have a very long career, I hope for him, if he continues this way and he continues to working hard. Just I wish him all the best. That's what I said to him."
-Safin after beating Djokovic 60 62 61, 1st rd, Austalian Open 2005.


Always neat to look back :cool:

Russia have better players than Safin, including two that are in the top 10.

Now I wonder if Marat said anything to Ernests after their 1st round match. Maybe Marat only gives predictions about people that he bagels, or rather, "crystal balls." :scratch:

Is there ANY reason people like Marat besides his good looks or something?

A lazy one-trick clown is who he is and should go into modeling and get off the tennis court. An embarrassment to the integrity of sport.

Safin played some exceptional tennis that match, really impressive. Djokovic never even played bad, he played great for a youngster.

Yes, two guys who don't even have one Grand slam final to their name and 1 Masters Series between them :o
