Re: ¡¡¡ Fernando González TOP 10 !!!

Congratulations Fernando

Here’s a very good piece written by Fernando himself about it. I'm posting the original in Spanish and the translation below.

Ser top ten es un sueño que siempre tuve desde niño. Si hasta soñé con esa palabra. Y ayer, después de ganarle a Ivan Ljubicic, alcancé ese objetivo que todo tenista espera alcanzar algún día. En teoría estar 11 ó 10 es casi lo mismo. Es una cuestión matemática más que otra cosa. Pero de todas formas es un logro anhelado y que buscaba hace tiempo. El año pasado estuve a un puesto de ubicarme entre los 10 mejores del mundo. Jugué el Masters de Shanghai y por un partido no me metí. Un par de veces otros jugadores me preguntaron cuánto me faltaba para ser top ten. Y claramente para todos los que estamos en el Tour es algo muy importante alcanzar este logro.

Esta temporada no la empecé de la mejor forma. Los resultados no me acompañaron y he tenido algunos problemas físicos, como la dolencia al hombro derecho que ha afectado mi rendimiento. Soy sincero al decir que me ha costado más de lo esperado y de ahí que el top ten me llega en el momento menos esperado. Sin embargo, lo importante es que lo logré en Montecarlo, un torneo grande, de los más tradicionales que existen en el circuito y donde por tercera vez en mi carrera alcanzo las semifinales de un Masters Series.

Sé que para Chile también es un logro importante. Sólo tres tenistas nacionales, además de Luis Ayala cuando no existía el ranking computacional, se han metido dentro de los 10 mejores. A Marcelo Ríos lo seguí por televisión cuando consiguió sus logros, y a Nicolás Massú lo he visto muy de cerca porque hemos crecido juntos. Ellos también fueron top ten y es un gran honor ahora estar en este selecto grupo.

Cumplí una meta importante, pero mi idea es seguir creciendo. Uno siempre aspira a más y ojalá pueda meterme entre los cinco primeros. Pero por ahora puedo decir que me quité un peso de encima, porque este logro siempre estuvo rondando en mi cabeza.

Quiero tomarlo, también, como un impulso extra dentro de la mejoría que estoy viviendo. Hace ya unas semanas que me estoy sintiendo mejor. El triunfo contra James Blake por la Copa Davis, donde di vuelta dos sets en contra, fue un impulso muy importante para poder llegar a donde estoy ahora. Lo mismo que vencer a Carlos Moyá en primera ronda y sacarme tres puntos de partido ante el español Feliciano López. Le gané a Robin Soderling, a quien nunca había vencido. Y ahora estoy en semifinales, donde tengo una prueba muy importante ante Roger Federer. Está claro que el suizo está bastante peldaños más arriba que el resto, pero yo no tengo nada que perder. Creo que tengo los tiros, la potencia y la fuerza para vencerlo. A mi favor está el hecho de que he vencido a otros números uno en actividad. Le gané a Lleyton Hewitt en 2002 para avanzar a las semifinales en Cincinnati y después derroté a Andre Agassi el 2003, en Washington. Ganarle a Federer ahora sería increíble, porque está claro que es el jugador llamado a cambiar la historia del tenis mundial. No tengo otra que jugármela y buscar como sea quedarme con un triunfo.


Translation:

To be top ten is a dream that I always had since I was a boy. Until now I dreamed about that word. And yesterday, after winning against Ivan Ljubicic, I reached that goal that all tennis player hope to reach someday. Theoretically to be 11 or 10 it is almost the same. It is a mathematical question more than any other thing. But in any case it is a success that I was looking for since a long time. Last year I was in a position to locate me between the 10 best ones of the world. I played the Masters de Shanghai but missed it by one match. A couple of times other players asked me how much it lacks to me to be top 10 and for all those that we are on the tour it is clearly something very important to reach.

This season I did not begin in the best form. The results did not come and I have had some physical problems, like the pain in the right shoulder that had affected my game. I am honest when I say that this was more difficult for me than expected and for that reason the top ten arrives at a less awaited moment. Nevertheless, the important thing is that I obtained it in Monte Carlo, a great tournament; one of most traditional in the circuit and it was the third time in my career that I reached the semifinals of a Masters Series.

I know that for Chile it is also an important success. Only three national tennis players, in addition to Luis Ayala when the computer ranking did not exist, have been within the 10 best ones. Marcelo Rios who I followed by television when he obtained his profits, and Nicolas Massú who I have seen very close because we have grown together. They also were top ten and it is a great honour now to be in this selected group.

I fulfilled an important goal, but my idea is to continue growing. One always aspires to more and hopefully I can reach the top 5. But so far I can say that this took a load off my mind, because this goal was always circling in my head.

I want to take it also as an extra impulse within the improvement that I am making. Already for weeks I have been feeling better. The triumph against James Blake in Davis Cup where I came back from 2 sets down, was an very important impulse to be able to arrive at where I am now. Just like to overcome Carlos Moyá in first round and to save three match points in the match against the Spaniard Feliciano Lopez. I won against Robin Soderling who I never had beaten before. And now I am in semifinals, where I have a very important test against Roger Federer. It is clear that the Swiss is enough steps above the rest, but I do not have anything to lose. I believe that I have the shots, the power and the force to overcome him. To my favor there's the fact that I have won to other numbers one in activity. I won against Lleyton Hewitt in 2002 to advance to the semifinals in Cincinnati and later I defeated Andre Agassi the 2003, in Washington. To beat Federer now would be incredible, because it is clear that he is the called player to change the history of world-wide tennis. I cannot do more than to play and hoping for a triumph.
