Glad you like the quotes girls
It's nothing really important though I just read the post matchs interviews when I had some time off and find what the other players had to say about Marat......I'll send it to Christine when she'll be back from her vacation and she might like to add it to her web site.....

Here's some good one for you girls:

I mean, obviously against a caliber like Safin, my concentration, everything has to be at a very high level. –Boris Becker 1999 Lipton Championships, Key Biscayne.

But we played really nice matches, and I like to play against him because the matches are always close and there are so many interesting rallies and so many nice rallies, so that's why I play tennis, because of these rallies and this kind of game. And when I going to play Marat, I already know it's gonna be fight and it's gonna be nice game. –Dominik Hrbaty, 2001 Australian Open.

Of course, you never know what's going to come next. I think we are very similar. Me, too, also a little bit. So we get cross on the court if we're not happy with our games. We are disappointed when it's not going well; we are happy when it works well. I think we can both hit shots, like, you don't expect. So I think we have something similar. Of course Marat is, ranking-wise and result-wise, in a different league, but I hope I can catch up with him. – Roger Federer, Tennis Masters Series Rome, 2001.


Love that one!

Yeah, he's a good friend. We have a same manager, you know. But hopefully I'm older. He has enough time to do well in Wimbledon. You know, he should give it to me this time. –Goran Ivanisevic, Wimbledon 2001.

That's another great one IMHO:

And I feel like, you know, playing these great players so early, emotionally, I looked at them like finals. And I was pumped up. I mean when I played Pat and Andre, now Marat, I was keyed up. This is what I play for, this is what I do all the training for, are for these moments. And that's where I'm at in my tennis. –Pete Sampras US Open 2001.

But in difficult moments, he served very well, he played very well. When he's in this state of mind, he's able to beat anybody. I remember his match against Hewitt in Bercy. He's very difficult to destabilize in those cases. –Sébastien Grosjean 2002 Davis Cup final.

Default Re: Re: Re: Favourite Marat Quotes

I don't know if u already post these quotes (and I'm to lazy to read all again lol) so sorry if that's not new


THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 2000 (usopen so)

"Sometimes is good, sometimes no. But normally, it doesn't work. You have to be afraid every time you go to the court. It gives you, you know, motivation, adrenaline is going to your body. Otherwise you go to the court like to the beach ... I think you have to be afraid, otherwise you going to the court, you think that you have to win. These other guys, they're playing great tennis, like Kiefer. If you go to the court and you are not araid, he can beat you very easy because he's playing great tennis. You're going there, you know, (saying) 'I'm going to beat this guy very easy.' I could be three sets to love very easy, so you have to be afraid -- a little bit, not too much. A little bit, yes, but before the match. It give you a little bit of concentration. You have to move a lot, otherwise if you are a hundred percent sure that you going to win, you don't move at all. Then the problems coming, like against Grosjean. I came, I win two sets. I don't know where I've been the other two. I was in the locker room, I think."
- Marat Safin
on confidence going into a match. Safin beat Nicolas Kiefer, 7-5, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3.


"Not yet, but I will do it."
- Marat Safin on whether or not he's broken any rackets during the Open.


"Not in the power (area)... In pure talent, yeah. There's a lot of talented kids out there... I can't of anyone who is more powerful than Safin off the groundstrokes."
- Pat Cash
on Marat Safin's ability and power vs. today's up-and-coming players.


"I think he can be the best player in the world. I think he's capable of being No. 1. I worry about his grass court play at this point, but certainly on hard courts or clay, or indoors, he can be extremely dangerous ... You look at him or Lleyton Hewitt. I mean, to me, it's one of those two fellas down the road, unless these middle-aged tennis players -- whether it's Gustavo Kuerten or (Magnus) Norman, or players of that nature -- can turn it on and reach the No. 1 ranking...It's (going to be) wide open."
- John McEnroe
on the potential of US Open semifinalist Marat Safin.


I'd like to walk off the court without holes in me ... he hits the ball so hard. I think he and Lleyton (Hewitt) are the guys we're going to watch in the 21st century."
- Todd Martin
on facing Marat Safin for the first time in the semifinals.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9


"I thought I was playing horrible today. Because I start, I was completely out of the court. I couldn't find my concentration. I plyed just without any pressure. Actually I couldn't find my concentration until the end of the second set tiebreak. I said (to myself) 'Listen, I'm going to lose, I can lose. I have a big chance to win this tiebreak and at least be in the match, be two sets to love, or I can be one set all, completely different game.' I just had to concentrate. I was concentrated in important moments. In the last two tiebreakers, I was one hundred percent concentrated, and that helped me."
- Marat Safin on his match against Todd Martin. Safin won, 6-3, 7-6, 7-6.



"I don't think so. He knows what I'm going to do; I know what he's going to do. I lost a tough match. I had two match points. You know, he believes he can beat me, so that's a big bonus for him. It is a final of a major. He hasn't played many of them. He's going to come out not intimidated by the situation. He's going to go out and he's going to play fine. It's going to be a close match. We'll see."
- Pete Sampras on whether or not having just played Marat Safin in Toronto will help him prepare for his US Open final match against him. Sampras defeated Lleyton Hewitt in the semifinal, 7-6, 6-4, 7-6.



"Hard to say. That's the best Pete's played against me ever. You know, I've only played him four times before this. That's easily the best he's ever hit the ball against me. I think he's really up for it, as well. The pressure is sort of off him. You know, this sounds stupid, but the pressure is off Pete in a Grand Slam final. The pressure is always on him a little bit, but going for that record-breaking Grand Slam final, I think it's off him now, he feels a little relaxed. Safin is a great player, beat him in Toronto a few weeks ago. I think it's going to be a very good final."
- Lleyton Hewitt on the upcoming Sampras-Marat final.
