Default Test your Marat Safin knowledge!

1. Marat's season has taken a turn for the better. This can be attributed to:

a. the car accident in Cincinnati
b. Sasha
c. his love of NYC, Mother Russia, and roofs
d. all of the above


2. Marat's favorite phrase is:

a. "Bring on the grass season!"
b. "Does this shirt go with that tie?"
c. "A little bit of luck."
d. "Vamos!"


3. Marat's favorite animal is the:

a. pigeon
b. hippo
c. duck
d. none of the above


4. Marat's recent haircut shave was inspired by:

a. Kolya's and Misha's runs to the USO semis
b. Feli's repeated invitations to his hotel room to "check out my haircare products"
c. Agassi's retirement, a la Blake's tribute outfit
d. a trip to DENIAL, where the moptop never happened


5. Marat's plans for life after tennis:

a. joining Paradorn in celibate monkhood to practice mental disciplines of the East
b. studying to take over Bolletieri's job
c. a beer in one hand and a kid in the other
d. starting World Blog War I with Dima


6. Marat speaks:

I. Russian
II. Ancient Greek
III. English
IV. Swedish
V. Spanish
VI. Swiss German

a. II only
b. I, III, IV
c. I, IV, VI
d. I, III, V
e. all of I-VI
f. none of I-VI


7. Marat is to plastic surgery as:
a. fish is to bicycle
b. Spain is to more claycourters
c. Karlovic is to stilts
d. all of the above


8."Q. Are you aware of how much your fans live and die by your matches? If you go on to Internet, people see a breakpoint, they go, Oh, my God, Marat's going to lose it. Are you aware of the interest?
MARAT SAFIN: Well, I thank them for that, and I'm pretty happy that a lot of people like at 11 o'clock in the morning there was some people sitting there even with the terrible weather we have right now. They were sitting there clapping and applauding, they want you to win."

Or, in other words:
a. "Can we not talk about the fans on the internet? Dima goes there, and I'm scared."
b. "My fans are better than your fans."
c. "Am I in danger of being sued for psychological damages?"
d. "At 11 o'clock in the morning we should all have been sleeping still, so I appreciate the devotion."


9. "You know the story of the hippo? The hippo comes to the monkey and says, 'Listen, I'm not a hippo.' So, he paints himself like a zebra, but the monkey says, 'Look at you, you're painted like a zebra but you're still a hippo.' So then the hippo says, 'I want to be a little parrot,' and he paints himself like a parrot. He goes back to see the monkey who tells him, 'Sorry, you're still a hippo.'

"So in the end, you know, the hippo goes back to the monkey and says, 'I'm happy to be a hippo. This is who I am.' So, I have to be who I am and he's happy being a hippo!"

True or false? Marat's favorite holiday is Halloween.




WARNING! Risque and not for the faint of heart!

10. "There is nothing so sexy as a woman who is angry – perhaps when she is even throwing things."
About winning Davis Cup: "Better than sex!"
"2 years older and I am a little bit smarter so I can do it without the girls."

True or false? Marat is happy and fulfilled in all aspects of his life and would not be pleased if a bunch of Safinholics suddenly showed up at his door ready to go canoeing.

Congratulations! You are a true Safinholic, and Marat is proud to have you for his fan. A printout of these results can be redeemed for one (1) drink in his company at an establishment of your choice in Moscow or Monte Carlo--after that you're on your own.

It is unclear whether congratulations are called for or not. Your style matches Marat's in creativity and entertainment, but your results resembled his in ranging from brilliant to . This indicates that you would be compatible enough for a passionate and mutually enjoyable fling, but that both parties are too unstable for any lasting relationship. Good noodle with the fling.

Ding ding ding! I guess it's not a well-known English expression, so I should explain it (or at least give people a chance to revise their answers. ).

9/10
Congratulations! You know your Marat Safin. Since your response of "true" to number 10 indicates that you are more interested in having a platonic relationship than rushing his door, a printout of these results can be redeemed for one (1) racquet, mangled according to your specifications and delivered in person at Bercy.

Okay, this does need to be explained.

There's an expression in English that a person needs something "like a fish needs a bicycle", i.e. not at all. Therefore, since Marat needs plastic surgery like a fish needs a bicycle, Spain needs more claycourters, or Karlovic needs stilts, the best answer is (d), although the others are still correct.

Edit: Here's a funny usage of the expression.
