Re: David On TV!!!

Transcript and pics from Tennis 2005 (Part I)
-What happens to you in the big tournaments?-In the bigger tournaments there are twice more points than in any other, I mean, to win 5 ATP tours and playing badly at the GS and super 9 is the same as not doing anything at all. You will never be in the top 15 doing that. Playing well 3 GS, 4 super 9 and not winning an ATP Tour, you're much higher. I think it's evident where you must aim. The motivation is different, I mean, you're in a mega tournament and they give you 1000 times more points than in an ATP tour. What else do you need?

-What is missing for you to win a Grand Slam?
-I was very close 3 or 4 times and I think that in the last rounds I was always with a physical problem, except the Wimbledon final.
When I was playing SF with Roddick I started the match with an abdominal injury and then while I was playing I injured my wrist. Then in Roland Garros when I was playing Gastón, I had an intercosta injury that I got while I was playing Guga in the round before. And that plays against you, when you're in a decisive round is when you have to play at your best. And in fact, Gastón played a great tournament and won it. And Roddick won it too, even when I has him at match point, with all that, it was hard.

Re: David On TV!!!

Part II
-Has your tennis changed after Wimbledon 2002?
-After the Wimbledon final there was a change, a good one, cause after that I never dropped in the ranking and I'm always among the first spots. I realised that I could make it there, that I could play against the best players in any surface and fight for the first spots.

-Is Federer much better than the rest of the players?
-No, I don't think he's much better than us. I think he's a step ahead of us, but he's not unbeatable. I think he improved a lot his movility and his backhand. For me, that's what he improved the most.

-Tell me about your passion for rally
-When I was little I only went out to see rallies. I started liking it before tennis, all my life.

-Why didn't you dedicate to rally then?
-Because it was too expensive (laughs)

-Do you see yourself driving a rally car in a few years?
-Yes, maybe. I'll do something.

-Have you planned it already?
-No! I still have 8 years of career with tennis ahead of me, even more I hope, but well...Once I retire, yes...

Re: David On TV!!!

I like the Federer comment from David; Not many guys no more about Roger's game than Nalbandian.

Re: David On TV!!!

I guess so Coria said that nowadays only two guys can beat him: Marat and David. I hope he's right!

It might be safe to add Nadal to that list as well; he certainly has proved so, no?

Re: David On TV!!!

Nadal just needs to improve that serve, which David could also use some work on.

Re: David On TV!!!

Yes, the David serve the one that gives fans nightmares around the world.

Fedex, check the oldies thread I did a write up on Pernfors. I might do one on Jaite as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
