Players have to learn to think before they speak.
"Players have too much tennis," the 2000 U.S. Open champion said after beating Olivier Rochus 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 at the Monte Carlo Masters. "If you want the best players, you have to give them time to prepare."
Safin pointed out that Andy Roddick pulled out of the Monte Carlo event Monday, a day after losing in the final of the U.S. Clay Court Championships in Houston.
Roddick would have had to "fly overnight from Houston, then play on clay the next day?" Safin said. "He's lucky if he puts two balls in the court."
