A quote about Dina by Dima, his old blog is so funny!
'By the way, fans don’t realize how much time tennis players spend online. Dinara [Safina] probably has every song on the planet into her laptop. Marat downloads so many movies it feels like he is planning to open Blockbuster Video in Moscow'
'Don’t spend time ripping music off the internet like Dinara Safina.'
Dina doesn't go out cos she's on her laptop all the time

"The worst piece of advice that Marat has ever given me? A few years ago, he only needed to train for half an hour per day, whereas I needed four hours. He said: ‘Just train for half an hour – that’s enough’, but that really didn’t work. I got nothing done in half an hour."Dinara Safina
"She was a funny girl. I remember her coming to the match with a two liter Pepsi. You would look at her and think, 'No way she can win a Grand Slam one day.' But then she moved to Spain and she changed completely. She became much more professional, and she did a huge job. She improved really a lot."
