Quote of the Day - Marat Safin on Novak Djokovic

"Djokovic has the breaking news, huh? (Laughter) I think he should stick to his tennis and keep his mind into tennis instead of giving up my private life. (laughter)"

-- Marat Safin responds to a reporter who said that Novak Djokovic revealed the Russian was off to climb a mountain in South America after he retires.

Former world number 1 and 2000 US Open champion, Marat Safin, played his very last US Open match today when he lost to Jurgen Melzer in the first round.

I am wondering who will we quote when this guy retires?!? He gives us endless material to talk about with his snarky comments, his on-court outbursts, his off-court romances and yes, a few years back, we loved to talk about his genius tennis too.

Marat, you will be missed!

Check here for the full transcript of the post-match presser and here if you prefer to watch it.
