Marat Safin says he plans to make the Paris Masters in November the final tournament of his career. “Paris, that’s where we’ll have to make it the last tournament, a tournament where I play the best tennis and where I won the Davis Cup. So I would love to say bye-bye there,” he said in Dubai, adding that it would be nice to finish with a title.
“Of course, I have to agree with all of the players and make it happen,” he joked. “A nice farewell, bye-bye, and well, just win the tournament and just a present for me. I will give away the prize money to everybody.”
Safin earlier indicated he would retire sometime this year but had not said whether he planned to finish the season.
Safin was for nine weeks world number one and won two Grand Slam titles ( Australian Open & US Open). He earned 13′922′490 US Dollar of prize money in his career.
