He actually said 'bitch' word not f-ck (we use it like english-speakers use f-ck word in some cases)

The only case when I might swear (very quietly) is during tennis matches. If you know what I mean.

Once I almost sweared aloud in the office when I looked at the scoreboard but managed to half muffle myself. Not very successfully though, my colleagues were startled by the sound I made

That´s pretty bad sometimes too We always talk Swedish with some of my friends (it´s our mother language..), and sometimes talk pretty rudely about people, and it´s bad if they happen to understand Swedish

My colleague and I had a business meeting once with a guy from Europe who told us he doesn't know a single russian word. At one moment during the meeting we said a couple of words in russian to each other (not more, and we were not rude, just a little joke) and this guy suddenly answered in russian. We became speechless instantly. The worst thing was that it made us feel like laughing so much, we tried our best to restrain ourselves but without success , we couln't keep on serious conversation. Almost slipped down the chair.

I usually sent the hubby away when I'm watching Marat's matches, especially after an embarassing incident during the Haas match at the 2001 AO. He's been looking at me funny two days after that.

Marat about his defeat against Robredo:

"Safin described the outcome of the match as "pure luck".

He said: "There were some points which could have gone either way. Tonight they went his way.

"I have nothing to be angry about. I was just missing a little bit. I wasn't 100-percent when I needed to be."
"

more:

"I had so may points that I should have won, you get sick and tired of it," said the charismatic Russian after his 7-5 1-6 6-1 4-6 8-6 defeat.

"I destroyed the racket and the chair because I couldn't take it any more, to release my emotions, otherwise I was going crazy out there."

"The crowd love you and you're playing on a perfect court," he said. "But everything was a struggle today. I'm not taking any credit from him but I was missing something.

"If it's going to happen, it will. But this is painful because it's my favourite tournament. Hopefully, more opportunities will come."

"I fought until the last point and that's something I'm satisfied with," said Safin. "My game was not 100 percent when I needed it to be. It's tough but life goes on."

"Today it came down to luck, pure luck," added Safin when asked by reporters what had decided the match. "Nothing went the way I wanted it to go.

"But I've been lucky to be where I am. If somebody hadn't invested in me to play tennis for five years I might be picking up bottles in Moscow."

He was never going to complete the Grand Slam, not with the way he feels about Wimbledon grass, but he does have the game to have made another great run in Paris, where his best performance was reaching the semifinals in 2002.

Q. Did Marat say anything to you after the match?

TOMMY ROBREDO: No. He's a great player, you know, he's a great guy. Sometimes he breaks a racquet or so. But sometimes he's very expressive. But he's a really great person. He congratulated me.
