Where do I find Player INterviews?

Lets say the site decides that the interview of a top ten player isn't as important as a player hardly in the top 100

How can I get around these xenophobic bastards and find the interviews?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I just sent the site an irritated email


as below -



Hello -

I wanted to point out a glaring flaw with the website for the cincinatti tournament.

Not everyone who watches tennis is American. It would be nice to read interviews from top ten player Juan Carlos Ferrero, or former number one player and 1998 Roland Garros winner Carlos Moya.

Yet for some reason these two, and many others who don't fly an American flag next to their names, don't have an interview posted on the official site.

What baffles me most is to see the day that Dent lost, his interview is posted, but not Ferrero's.

Some of us have interest in hearing what players not from the USA think, and it would be nice if your site could provide for on international audience.

Yours Truly -

*my name*




--------------------------------

It occurs to me that maybe I am over looking a special place of the site where their interviews are, in which case I look awfully silly

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Well done Rebecca

I had noticed that too, that many interviews were missing. If it happens one round and the player's press conference is posted the next round, I guess that can be OK but some players aren't featured at all in any round.
(for instance as much as I remember no Seb Fatjohn press conference either in Cinci nor Toronto. OK he lost early this week but made the quarters at the Canadian Open)
And that's the same for many others as you pointed out.


The only place is know for transcripts apart from the tourney sites is asap as well.

I find it almost laughable that at least 3 of the semi finalists don't have ONE interview up

I am not sure if Gonzalez does...

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

They wont, angele. Like they give a f**k.
Idiots are idiots, you know...

Its a lot more interesting to read an Agassi interview, where he says "you know" 1092074186412 times and the same stuff all over again. And what could they possibly ask Taylor Dent???
"Hi Taylor, what do you do after the serve?"

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

lol hitman

Excellent work, Becca! That e-mail is just perfect. I hope they take notice of it! How hard can it be to post interviews on the net.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

NO, I think that I was just impatient waiting for the interview

I'd still like to know why his win against Taylor doesn't have an interview though

Or the one against Blake.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

THis was no help


"Hello there, Rebecca, We post all of the transcripts provided by ASAP. The reason interviews of Ferrero or other players you may have been looking for were not posted early in the week is because the media here on site did not request them for press conferences. We receive transcripts only from those players who did official press conferences after their matches."

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
