More awesome quotage from Dina:
"He can play one way the ball and I can't play this way. I would go for a winner and he would say 'Why did you do that? You have to push it from there'. But he plays one way and I play another way."
That extends off the court too. Safin is famous for loving the glamorous lifestyle afforded by success as a tennis player, surrounding himself with an entourage of beautiful women.
Safina seems puzzled when asked what she bought herself as a reward for her exceptional performance last year.
"If I want to buy something, I buy it. But I have a car, I have an apartment. What else do I need?" she asked.
"I changed my hair colour."
The only reward she craves from winning is "chocolate cake ... jewellery, I don't buy".
Heh. Cake. Makes me think of this.
Even Lena D weighs in on the Siblings Safin:
"She was always hard working. I have a lot of respect for her and it's nice to see her growing up and improving her game. I think it's never easy to be in the shadow of her big brother and they are two different people. Marat gets everything so easy but she worked really hard for all of her results."
So if I could have my way, I would really really really like to see Muzz and Dina won AO. That combination would just warm the sad cold cockles of my heart.
