Q. Who is your favourite female player from the WTA?
Marat Safin: I won't be original; Anna Kournikova. She is a very beautiful girl, or young lady, is that what I should call her? I also like the German player Jana Kandarr, she is more like a model. But I like both Anna and Jana just physically, from a distance. For example, I wouldn't marry Anna.


Focus: What do you think, how would end a match between Anna Kournikova and Nicolas Kiefer?

Marat Safin: 6:0, 6:0 - of course for Kiefer. Anna wouldn't win a point, unless, Kiefer would think: Goodness, she looks pretty - and because of that lose his concentration.



One silly reporter asked what the difference was between him and Anna Kournikova (I guess he was getting at the sex symbol aspect, dunno) ... Marat looked disgusted and said "She is woman ... I am man".

Vera Zvonareva, Anastacia Myskina

Ana Ivanovic, Tatiana Golovin, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina

LLeyton:
"Her presence make my big wins more meaningful. Having her close makes me even stronger and knowing I can share those moments with her, makes up for the sacrifices we make when our tournaments keep us far apart. That's why I like the Grand Slams. Because we are together then. We try to encourage each other and to help each other achieve our goals. Since we met each other, 3 years ago at the Australian Open, my vision on tennis or life hasn't changed much, but our relationship makes the experiences more meaningful. I believe Kim every day, makes me be a better tennis player and a human being. I can't really explain how she influences me, but I can feel that she does."

Pathetic, chauvenistic response by marat. Ofcourse anna would give Nicolas atleast a few tough games before probably getting double bagelled. Ofcourse there is no comparison between mens and womens tennis, which does not mean women's tennis is worth less (what he implies by referring to liking women ONLY for their looks, not game).

And an extra note....anna and jana only look great from the distance? he needs to get his eyes checked cos they both are way better than him!

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

He meant with "from the distance" that he is actually talking only about the looks and not the charakter/personality.

SM, anna almost got double bagelled by Justine Henin, who would get double bagelled by Nicolas Kiefer. So I don't see anna getting any tough games from a former men's #4.

What year was it when Rios called either Monica Seles or the entire women's tour a fat cow/fat cows? 1995? it was at wimbledon, he made some sort of cow on grass remark.

At the moment, I should think Kournikova would lose love and love to every male player out there; mind you, with the way Kiefer is playing, he would probably gift her a couple of games by having a little mini-choke and failing to close out the match at the first time of asking.

By the way, with regard to quotes, I present The Wit and Wisdom of Richard Krajicek:
"Women tennis players are fat like pigs"

don't remember exact wording, but didn't Richard Krajeick (sp) say something like "Venus Williams serves and she doesn't even know where it's going"

During the Hopman Cup, James Blake said Serena was "Really cool and laid back"

And of course all the nasty things that Brothers McEnroe said about the Williams sisters before they became #1 and #2 in the world

When you see Venus on a bad serving day, there is some validity in Krajicek's observation. And hey hey, don't diss the Brothers McEnroe... well, John is still OK even if Patrick has apparently become a US player-worshipping, praise-dribbling commentator of the lowest order.

Wow LLeyton's quote about Kim is amazing, I guess I didn't realize how much they care for each other. I love them both now more than ever, Go Kim and LLeyton!

Well, I suppose it makes for better reading than "Mate, she's a top-class piece of blonde eye candy for me and Jason", doesn't it?

I dont think Richar K said that...I think it was Pete Sampras...which must hurt Venus since she was such a fan of his...even naming her dog after him...

Pat Cash once said Lindsay Davenport was built like a "shot putter" . It was definately not mean't in any type of complimentary manner.
