Default Re: Favourite Marat Quotes / Quotes about Marat

From an old NB's press conference, I cant remeber if this has already been posted before but...oh well...

Q: Juan Carlos, you and Marat know each other from junior tennis. Did you live close to each other?

MARAT SAFIN: 100 kilometers. We have the same fitness coach. I know him since 12 years old, I think.

Q. Who used to win when you played?

MARAT SAFIN: This guy (referring to Juan Carlos Ferrero ).

Q. Every time?

MARAT SAFIN: Except for last time (laughter).

Q. When did it change?

MARAT SAFIN: When? Because he was great in Juniors and 14. He won. He was more experienced. At 14 years he played much better, played more tournaments. Also on the ratings, he was much better than me. Also he beat me in the Davis Cup against Spain.

Q. Was Marat always this big?

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Sure, he's big. He's now 6 in the world. He plays unbelievable.

MARAT SAFIN: But I was smaller.

Q. Marat, who is your coach now actually?

MARAT SAFIN: I have no coach. I'm looking for him. Alex is helping me, giving some advice to find the right guy. I don't want to rush also with the coach because I'm doing well without him. I can work alone.

Q. I've seen you practicing with Roger. Do you do that quite often? Was that just a coincidence? Do you often practice together?

MARAT SAFIN: Yeah. His coach, he came to me to practice. He came to me to ask for practice. I think is right guy to find good rhythm, to play some good points. Play very fast, very good serve. It's very good. He's very good for practice. If you want to play with him, you can come (laughter).

bwahaha Juanca


Q. You've known Marat a long time, go back to when you were juniors in Valencia. Today he leaves all of his clothes home, so he has to borrow clothes from Nicolas Kiefer after a rain delay. Has he always been like this, a little forgetful, not quite organized all the time?

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: No, you know, when was rain in the tiebreak and in the match, I think the tiebreak, no, because, you know, is difficult to begin to play against Federer because he serve so good. After I think is have a little bit luck, you know, with luck in the tiebreak. I think the tiebreak, it's a little bit luck. I think was so difficult match because he serve so good all the time, and it's difficult to break his serve, no, in the match. I'm really happy for this match.

Q. I didn't make this question clear. I was talking about Marat.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Oh, Marat.

Q. He left his extra socks and shorts at the hotel. During the rain delay, he wanted to change clothes.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: For Marat?

Q. He got them from Nicolas Kiefer. You've known him for many years.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Yes, I know.

Q. Was he always disorganized like this when he was young?

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: I think Marat, all his life, this type. I think Marat a little bit craziness. But he always play the same level, no, 5-4 in the tiebreak or 1-0 in the first set. He think he must concentrate in his tennis right now. I think more organized in his life.

Q. You said that you borrowed socks and shorts from Kiefer.

MARAT SAFIN: Yeah.

Q. Why did you need to do that?

MARAT SAFIN: Why I needed?

Q. Yes.

MARAT SAFIN: I mean, I don't think that the people, they will like, if somebody will smell on the court, smell bad, no?

Q. You didn't have any extra?

MARAT SAFIN: I like, you know, take shower, to have new clothes, new stuff. I just forgot my socks in the hotel. I came with one pair of socks, which was for practice. I came and I didn't have any socks left. I asked Kiefer to give me. No, first Jeff, he gave me. After another rain delay, I ask Kiefer for the socks and for this one (indicating shirt).

Q. He gave you something, Tarango?

MARAT SAFIN: Yes, socks (laughter). Everybody sponsor me today

Q. What did you do during the rain delays?

MARAT SAFIN: Nothing. Trying to find the socks and the shorts. Trying to find Kiefer, at least. He was there somewhere. I didn't want to take his bag, open his bag. I send Alex to look for him to give me some socks and shorts. Finally he gave me. I was lucky.

more pearls

"Of course I went crazy because I am telling the ball is out. The guy, the linesmen also, they are watching me with a face like I'm stupid.... Please respect me; I respect you. We are in the same business. With everybody on the court. So please answer the questions. What the **** I'm not gonna kill anybody. I'm just will tell him that, "Please, just little bit of attention more, hmm?" It's so easy, so simple. But when they look with me with the face like I'm stupid, it piss me off of course. Actually, when I'm right also. So is not right. I think so. "

Q. And that obviously has an effect on the way you play subsequent points then?

MARAT SAFIN: I was close, very close to break one racquet. And if I will break the racquet, of course who gonna say, "Violation, racquet abuse, Mr. Safin." Everybody knows this like, you know, they can be a genius.

Q. We haven't seen you smash a racquet yet. Little disappointed. Is this a new, more mature Marat Safin, or are you deciding to take pity on your racquets?

MARAT SAFIN: If you can pay all my fines, it's okay. I can broke many. You know how much I paid already this year?

Q. Tell us.

MARAT SAFIN: Close to probably was 250 in Australia, close to $7,000, or even 10. Guys, for $10,000, you know what I can do? You don't want to know what I can do with $10,000.

Q. How many have you broken this year so far? I know it was 48 last year.

MARAT SAFIN: You going to go out to Head to tell them, no? 35, 36.

Q. When was the last time?

MARAT SAFIN: Last time? Last week against Guardiola. I forgot about this already. I'm a new man

Default Re: Favourite Marat Quotes / Quotes about Marat

last one...i promise..

Q. Do you remember Elena (Dementieva)being there at the same time when you were there with your mother?

MARAT SAFIN: Yeah, of course. Play the same times.

Q. You played together?

MARAT SAFIN: Sometimes. She was bad (laughter).

Q. How does your mother feel when you throw racquets?

MARAT SAFIN: "Well done. Well done, kid. Do it again."

Q. So your parents smashed racquets on the court?

MARAT SAFIN: No, my father, he was like this. He was - how you say - when he play football, he get angry with all other players. Sometimes he hits Volkov on the head when they're playing together. I think it's coming from the father

"First there was Chesnokov, then Volkov was better than him, I was better than Volkov, Kafelnikov was better than me, and Safin is better than all of us."
A. Medvedev

------
some from '99-

Lipton Championships, Key Biscayne,Florida
Safin def Becker

"He has very raw power. I mean, you sometimes don't know how to use it yet properly. If he's able to use it in a proper way, he's a future No. 1. I haven't seen anybody hitting that hard from both wings for a long, long time." - B. Becker

M. Safin-

Q: No marriage in your plans there? (florida)

MARAT SAFIN: No. I bought a computer three days ago, so I'm playing with computer.

------

Q. Did you watch him? When Boris won Wimbledon the first time, you were four or five years old.

MARAT SAFIN: I was in a kids garden

-----

Q. Are there other sports you have a passion for as much as tennis?

MARAT SAFIN: Soccer. I like hockey, but it's too dangerous, I think, for my teeth (laughter).

-----

Davis cup SF- 1999 Brisbane, Australia

"I played like a real shit, I can't find any other word for my game today... In my whole life, I have never played like that... I just have no confidence at the moment. I feel so bad that I don't think I could beat anybody at the moment... It's going to be hard for me to come back on the court after this match.
Maybe I should quit tennis in a few days." - M. Safin

I found this on tgfr.com. thanks!
the quote is from september 2002. it was said by Marat (in spanish) to an argentine journalist in Moscow after Davis Cup semifinal against Argentina.

"Acá todos se creen especialistas de tenis. Me presionan para ganar y por eso rindo mejor afuera que en casa. ¿El aliento? Ustedes creen que me alientan, pero es porque no entienden lo que el público dice"

The translation: "Here everyone think they are tennis specialist. They urge me to win and that´s why I play better outside than at home. ¿If they encourage me? You think they encourage me, but that´s because you don´t undestand what the public says"
