Nadal and Gasquet's Post-Match Interviews

Very nice interviews. Both players were very gracious and positive. Nadal says that Richard was tired in the third set, but Richard says that Nadal deserved the victory and he might have won even if he had not been fatigued. Nadal also has some interesting comments on Monfils and the French media.

Re: Nadal and Gasquet's Post-Match Interviews

Great interviews from both of them. Nadal's English is the cutest! I love reading post match interviews to see what the thoughts of the players are after a match.

Thanks!

Thanks. Good stuff from both guys.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Nadal and Gasquet's Post-Match Interviews

Cute interviews from both guys. Both Richard and Rafael seem to have their heads screwed on right. (Although Rafa seems a little confused about Richard's ranking after Monte Carlo.)

Richard had a great attitude about the match and seems in good spirits (as he deserves to be.)

Liked Rafael's opinion that the coming of Gael may have lifted some of the pressure off of Richard. I think that could be true, it must help a player to have the pressure of an the expectations of an an entire county diffused a bit between more than one person. I also like how Rafael always shys away from saying that there will be a big rivalry in the future between he and player x, but instead likes to point out that there are a lot of talented players out there and not just two or three.

Both fellows seem to be good kids who don't just give lip service in their interviews. Glad that they will be around for a good while (hopefully).

I thought he was talking about his year end ranking, but I read those two hours ago and might have lost my way a bit since.

I lack direction.

You could be right, I could be reading it wrong. (And after having a 4-hour meal with lots of wine with friends tonight I would not be surprised.)

It is a little hard to pinpoint exactly what he means, but that is one reason why I like Rafael's interviews so much. His English conversations are about on par with my Spanish-language conversations with my grandparents and in-laws. Some confusion, but good intentions...

Re: Nadal and Gasquet's Post-Match Interviews

Q. You looked very happy to win that match. Was it because you see Gasquet a big rival for the future?

RAFAEL NADAL: No, I am happy because is my second final consecutive. And with this win, my ranking if I lost tomorrow is 12. That is very important for me.


I'm not sure the name of his adversary didn't count...

Re: Nadal and Gasquet's Post-Match Interviews

Just read through all of the interviews from qf onwards

Nadal's were great, as was Federer's in defeat

Gasquet likes the word 'fabulous'

Not that I disagree, but Nadal falling on the ground in victory isn't exactly a one-time thing. He's sort of making a habit of it Usually in big matches, but this was a pretty big match. He probably does have some mental Richard stuff going on, though, seeing as he did insist on continuing to play him on a broken foot last year.

I lack direction.
