David's post-match interview: Motivation can be a problem.

Since we have a thread for Luby's post-match interview, I thought I could include one for David.

http://www.masters-cup.com/en/interv...albandian3.pdf

David is asked why he does not play more like he does today when he is, in the opinion of one of the reporters, form good enough to be in the top three.

David replies that it is hard to play well consistantly- and admits that motivation is a reason. No surprise there, Nalby.

Pretty cute section where he is talking about fishing. I like reading his sometimes goofy English.

At least he didn't trash anyone. I enjoyed reading about the fishing too.

Re: David's post-match interview: Motivation can be a problem.

There has already been a thread started about this with a link to his interview, but KBF's rather childish opening post may have misled some people who thought about opening it.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

From the looks of it, KBF is in love.

I suspect he may soon hold a torch for anyone who can beat Ljubicic with regularity in big events.

Re: David's post-match interview: Motivation can be a problem.

Q. You played 2003 Houston Masters Cup. Can you compare the hospitality and the fans between Houston and Shanghai?
DAVID NALBANDIAN: Much, much better here. Hundred percent sure. Much, much.


I was expecting a diplomatic answer.

At least he didn't say Mattress Mac is a tool or something along those lines.
