“He was older than me, I looked at him as a champion and studied everything. He was fair. He always shared a grandmother for the tournaments smoothly, although he could do differently, standing taller. In this respect he is a decent person. And other people a lot, which for a penny hang himself. If he asked for something, he never turned away. Conceptual uncle,” said Safin live in Instagram the General producer of TV channel “Match TV” Tina Kandelaki.

Kafelnikov is the most titled Russian tennis player and Olympic champion of 2000.
