thanks for the article and translation, girls! As usual, he sounds even more soft spoken in his translated interviews.

Steppy, I'll try to translate few of this words, that I think summarize best the whole interview:
"I play matches and tournament like before. Some places I win, some places I lose. Some places I play better, some places worse."

Nothing too dramatic. IMHO he still tries to win matches, still tries to do something well (hence the pressure that he denies), but mentality has always been of a trick to him. That's part of his whole brilliance, after all As Irochka pointed out, at some point he might get afraid he'll win
That's exactly what I meant by "chocking". And that's what annoys me. You know last year I got used to the idea he didn't have the game anymore. He was losing matches that I couldn't picture him winning anyway. But in the past weeks he did play well enough to go further in tournaments. Except he didn't because he lost matches he should have won. That's irritating.

Re: Dinara Part 2: NUMBER ONE ON 20th APRIL! 2 more days!!

A remark from my TV commentator about Dinara being Nr.1 next Monday:
«As Serena will lose the points from her victory in Charleston last year, Safina will pass her in the rankings and become the Nr.1, which will seem a bit strange as she hasn't done much lately...»

I know she hasn't won a GS and that is the crown jewel in every player's career, but this sentence «Hasn't done much lately?» just pissed me off! A ranking consists of the points collected over a 52 week period and in that period all she did was to win Berlin, Los Angeles, Montréal, Tokyo, reach the final at Roland Garros, 's-Hertogenbosch, the Olympics, Sydney and the Australian Open.

Will never happen. Dinara--> (The interview ended with her saying that she had to leave because she and Zeljko were going to the Bayern/Barcelona match... does his wife know about this? )

Re: Dinara Part 2: NUMBER ONE!!!!!!!

Yes, she is and it proved to me once more why her brother doesn't even read Russian press One sports' newspaper celebration for her becoming Nr. 1 is a huge article, where at length they say how cold, arrogant and bitchy she is. She being cute just for camera, her brother being a jerk too. I have read half of it, and was pissed beyond words

Dinara, stay on top and prove those idiots what you are made of

This "article" killed me. I could expect anything from russian media but not this. Today is a big day for russian tennis and today is a big happy day for Dinara and her family. And what does the leading russian sports newspaper do? Do they write about how hard she worked for this, or about her determination, about tough times and difficulties? No, they come out with an article bitching about Dinara not being nice to the press. It's so low, it's just an attempt to spoil this day for Safin family, attempt to revenge for every time Marat and Dinara refused to give interview to them. Incredible.

Re: Dinara Part 2: NUMBER ONE!!!!!!!

Couldn't agree more. I was shocked, when I saw it and thought at first it's some sick irony or humor. Usually SovSport write nice things, but this one is way beyond any journalism. they deserve not to even see any of the Safins for the rest of their lives, let leave have an interview Those idiots critisize Safin parents for how they brought up their kids...that;s just
