Marat Safin started love affair with opera singer Aida Garifullina

The famous tennis player was spotted in the arms of the soloist of the Vienna State Opera during holiday in Kazan.


One of the most famous Russian athletets - 36-year-old Marat Safin - will soon cease being one of the most eligible bachelors. Tennis player is often seen in the arms of a popular opera star - 28-year-old soloist of the Vienna State Opera Aida Garifullina. Thus, recently a couple was noticed on the streets of Kazan, where they spent the weekend. Marat gently hugged Aida, who was holding a bouquet of flowers, and did not take his eyes off her. In a conversation with Garifullina admitted that she is in relationship with Safin already a year:

- We still want to keep us quiet. - shared with Aida Garifullina. With Marat I met a little more than a year ago at a party with common friends.



When she was asked whether they were planning to get married, the singer replied:

- Inshallah! (In Arabic, "If God willing.")

However, friends of the couple do not doubt that Garifullina and Safin will tie the knot soon.



Among those who did not manage to marry a tennis player: the current wife of Roman Abramovich, Dasha Zhukova, the actress Elena Korikova and soloist of "Blestyashie" Anastasia Osipova. Almost a year Safin had been in a relationship with some kind of a businesswoman, who gave birth to his daughter Eve ten years ago. Later she married the lawyer Dmitry Jakubowski.



Aida Garifullina, on the contrary, had no public love affairs, but made progress on the international opera scene. The girl had the opportunity to sing on stage with Placido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli and sang the part of Natasha Rostova in the opera "War and Peace" with the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra under the guidance of conductor Valery Gergiev. In 2014, Aida became a soloist of the Vienna Opera House.
