Thumbs up Post the classiest interview you've ever seen. Exhibit A: JMDP

Quote:
Wednesday 20 January 2010

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Apart from the win, what did you like most about your game tonight?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Well, I really showed the crowd, the people was so exciting all the time. We played very good match.

I think I have many good things right for the next match.

Q. With the exception of the US Open which you won in five sets, how does this compare with the other five‑setters you played?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: I don't know. The time was similar, I think. I play different player. Blake is too fast. He play very strong with his forehand. He never miss easy points, easy forehand.

It's very difficult to keep trying, keep going. You have to be focused every point, every time, and try to take your chance. I had my chance in the last set.

Q. How were you feeling at the end of the third set? What were you thinking?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Well, just keep trying, you know. It's a long match. Here playing five sets, you can lose last two sets and you still have with chance. That's what happen tonight. I was trying every game with my serve. Then when I had the opportunity to broke his serve, sometimes I did, sometimes not.

But I think I have very good things to keep with me for the next match.

Q. You had the trainer out in the fifth set. Are you okay?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Yes. Well, we play a very hard match. Obviously we both needed the trainer many times. But I'm okay.

Q. James did say that he wasn't really happy playing two matches in two days. He would have preferred to play Monday night late. What were your thoughts?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Yeah, was tough for him play two days in a row, five‑set matches. Of course, is difficult. Maybe I had a little lucky because I play on Monday not too long the match.

But he did a very good job today. I don't know. The match goes with me. But he play very good tennis.

Q. James said the second‑serve ace you had at 2‑1 was possibly the turning point. Did you feel that as well?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Yeah, I was thinking to do my best serve, and I did. I had a chance to close the match in 6‑5 serving. He play a great game. I miss all my first serves, so I was a little nervous.

But in the end I was so focused trying to break his serve, and I did in the last game, so...

Q. What do you think about your next opponent, Florian Mayer?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: Well, I play with him last year. He's a good player, of course. He beat Troicki. Maybe he's playing very good tennis. I hopefully be ready for next fight. I don't know, maybe I can play three hours better for my physical.

Q. How is your wrist?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: I'm okay. Thank you.

Q. No pain?

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: A little bit. But I can play.

Nice interview. Classiest is an exaggeration but JMDP is a well trained humbalito.

Nice interview but hardly extraordinary?

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Always when Delpo wins. You should post an interview when he loses...

I'd only post it if it was humblicious, because this thread is only for class-ical interviews [see Exhibit A above] ^

Re: Post the classiest interview you've ever seen. Exhibit A: JMDP

nah pissed off interviews are much more entertaining. One of my personal faves

Quote:
David Nalbandian

KEY BISCAYNE, FLORIDA

Q. What would you say about the match?
DAVID NALBANDIAN: Well, I win and I lose a point. He didn't do much. It was so windy it was difficult.
When I was solid and I played a good point I'd win it, and when I miss it, I miss it. So he didn't do much.

Q. Is it difficult to play against Nieminen because he's changing the tempo all the time? He's hitting really slow and then suddenly he hits much harder? Is it difficult to get into the game against him?
DAVID NALBANDIAN: I've beat him many, many times, so I don't. It's no problem at all.

Talking about Nieminen, DelPo said once when he won to him in a challenger for the first time at 16 years:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Del Potro
"Me dijeron que era bueno pero me pareció medio choto"
Translation: "They told me he was good but for me it seemed kind of bad"

And when he lost versus Murray in RG Junior he said:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Del Potro
"Si me ganó un par de veces, ya le voy a romper el orto"
Translation: "Yes he beat me a couple of times, soon I'm going to break his ass"

Re: Post the classiest interview you've ever seen. Exhibit A: JMDP

typical.

Bullshit media-savvy interviews where the player says absolutely nothing get lauded. As soon as a player says something remotely honest or controversial people are lining up to stone them.

No wonder people think there are no chracters in the game.

And ANYONE can be classy in victory so it means even less. OP must be a fanboy dumbass.
