Marat comments on the state of (Russian) men's tennis, and on the upcoming French Open, via Itar-Tass (Google translation).

Quote:
Marat Safin: A lack of new prominent names associated with reduced levels of male junior tennis

MOSCOW, May 23. / Correspondent. ITAR-TASS Albert Starodubsev /

Former tennis world number one Russian Marat Safin believes that the level of male junior tennis has fallen seriously in recent years, and there are no bright new names in the sport.

"Why in tennis there is no fresh blood? This is a very complex issue," Safin told a correspondent for ITAR-TASS. "When I was in big sports, in those years was very much competition. Together with Roger Federer is the young were a serious threat to the the same Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. I think the whole reason that the level of junior tennis now fallen. At the time of my promising players aged 18-19 years were already in the hundreds of the best tennis players of the world, won at major tournaments. And now tennis players in this age group are at best in the third hundred and benefit only the "challengers". Here I see some moments of crisis in men's tennis."

Safin also made his prediction for the upcoming French Open, which starts on May 26: "I think that there are no new names coming tournament we will not open", said the former tennis player. "For the victory it will fight all those who were among the favorites a year or two ago. Will beat Maria Sharapova? I think she has a good chance for that."

With regard had fallen on hard times in the national tennis, I can only speak for men", continued Safin. "Yes, we had good times, when Russia won the Davis Cup, the domestic tennis players have won Grand Slam tournaments, the Olympics. Now it's all in the past, and our place is not in the World Group of the Davis Cup. The Russian Tennis Federation is headed by a very respected by me, Shamil Tarpischev Anvyarovich, who has his own point of view, how to bring our tennis of the protracted crisis. Whether he's correct, it's difficult for me to judge, because now I'm retired from tennis, I don't know how the federation ... Now I have a lot of other things. But I hope that in our tennis better times. Do I have the desire to become the president of the federation, and most take for that lots of problems? me so far no proposals have been received."

Dmitry Tursunov mentions Marat in a recent interview with R-Sport.ru. I've tidied up the Google translation a bit.

Quote:

What are Marat Safin's responsibilities now, do you know?

To be honest, I have no idea if he's in tennis or not. At one time he was vice-president. I wouldn't say I'm very advanced in this respect, I don't really understand the title, what's behind it. If a person is vice-president, that doesn't explain to me exactly what the person's involved in. The same goes for being a deputy. What he does, I don't know. Something like voting, but his specific task, I don't know. I know that he's now in politics. I think he likes doing it, he really gets into it. When we communicate with him, he speaks, and sometimes I'm ashamed to admit it, but I just don't understand what he's saying. Like everything sounds tricky, and somehow you even start to feel like a fish out of water. Or even just a bit like a fool. In tennis, as I understand it, he didn't put down roots as deep as it initially seemed. It looked like he was getting started, and then maybe he changed his mind, maybe not, I don't know. But I know that he's helping Zhenya Donskoy. It's a complicated process, it's difficult to do everything at the same time. You have to decide what you want to do and do it 100%, not just a little here, a little there, and break into ten parts, neither there nor there, making no progress and botching up all your efforts. Marat is a smart man, he understands this, and it will certainly be his choice what he wants to do. It'll be either tennis or something else.
