From Marat's post-match presser:
Q. Because after years when she wasn’t playing so well, are you enjoying it now?
MARAT SAFIN: I’m enjoying it, but she ?? she’s a hard worker. So for her, everything is like a battle. She wants it. She wants it badly. She spends so much time on court. I think she is more professional than all the players together.
So when she’s trying and she’s ?? nobody believed that she’s going to be No. 1 in the world. Nobody believed that she going to be top 10 even two, three years ago.
So look where she is right now. A lot of people they giving her trouble, okay, she’s No. 1 in the world but she never won a Grand Slam.
So it’s a little bit ?? it gets tough on her. But she’s there. She’s fighting. She’s trying. I’m really proud of her that she can stand, and I tell everybody to fuck off basically in every press conference. I would do this way, but unfortunately she’s very polite to you guys.
But I’m really proud that she’s holding up herself even though that’s somebody can be really rough on her. She’s there. I hope she can be No. 1 for a long time so she can prove to everybody that they can go fuck themselves.
Q. When she became No. 1 and joined you as the only brother/sister as No. 1, did you have a celebration together?
MARAT SAFIN: We will. I’m really proud. I’m not proud of myself so much as I’m proud of my sister because she’s ?? everybody spoke about me. I know she’s the younger one. I was No. 1 in the world, and everybody expected from her, well, we’ll see where she can get to. And she made it. She pulled through and became No. 1 in the world.
Well, she’s in ?? in every Grand Slam she’s in the semifinal. She’s getting to the finals. So it really makes me proud to have such a great sister, and I’m going to leave something, or our family will leave something in tennis.
Q. Now that you stopped, what about coaching her?
MARAT SAFIN: Oh, you want me to hang myself? (laughter.)
