Re: Nico News and Articles
Here's the article that go with the "biker" pictures! LOL!
"With these sure photos that we are going to break it. Already it was bored middle with those typical that take me in the court, al side of the network", comments Nicolas Massú while runs between its piece and the mirror that communicates the dining room, provided of eccentric t-shirts for the unscripted photographic session. And the vedette of this interview is not the tennis player viñamarino dressed of rock artist but a small silver motorcycle that adorns the living room of his department.
The joyita in question, a production Harley-Davidson style machine limited that can run to 50 kilometers for hour, has dazzled al tennis player, that thinks to buy it to give him an ambientación different to its new home. "Me change to a larger department in December and I am going to decorate it in my style, with metallic furniture and outlandish colors. And the one that have, it lease or seeing. I take advantage of your newspaper to pass the avisito, jaja. And this motorcycle comes me very well to place it near a bar. It would remain impeque, not?", plans Massú, while drinks a Coca-Cola frost and does zapping with the remote control, tuning in quickly the contorneos of the girls of Mekano.
The good spirit of the double Olympic medalist contrasts with the summary of its sports year. It was a somber season in the court that assumes as a result of the wounds and does not dramatize more. It knows that with a normal preparation goes to be again up fighting the important things.
"After a year as good as the 2004 I would be able to have me relaxed with the Olympic achievements. But not, I am a maverick and always I want more. Everything that it passed me already is history and in that sense I hit me a matured hardly. I will be again that of before. The good thing is that now I dominate a lot better the crisis. Before me would have gone crazy with a so bad gust of wind. I achieved that the things did not affect me so much. Gabriel (Markus, his coach) presented me even to finish the year in Madrid so that aired me the head, but I did not want. Equal tin plating gave me that me was not better in Spain because I felt that did not I respond to the people that voted me so that played the tournament. Yourself figure you that Manuel Santana, the director of the tournament, approached itself me the day that closed the votings to tell me that was impressive like the people wanted me, that had devastated. Him could not believe", the player of 26 years says.
The door of the department of opens and Sonia Fried, its mother, enters for the walkway pushing a car of full supermarket of merchandise. "For the boy, that had peeled the refrigerator", comments the aunt Sonia with its habitual maternal tone. It is hooked with the conversation and quickly seeks a camera to portray to its regalón, that enjoys with the clicks of the photographer while embraces the famous motorcycle. Its brother Jorge Andrés, is killed of the laughter with the scene. The interview continues.
-Should be complicated to add six weeks in a row in the first return. How did you manage to survive to that frustration?
-To remain idle and to have that to expect several days to enter again to the court is not simple, but depends a lot of the place where you are. Internet enough accompanies me and a lot more now than I travel with a personal computer to drink wine in the nights before sleep. During the day, after the training I go to some mall to buy me clothes. Is my obsession.
-¿The relation of the tour is only of companions or you cultivate friendships?
-Good, friends like the Feña (González) there are few. He puts me al day with the things in Chile if we coincide in the tournaments. But equal there is people burglarizes. For example David Ferrer and Rafael Nadal. The other day we were with a grupito to see the party of the Real Madrid with the Rosenborg, by the Champions League, and later we went us to eat. The Rafa (Nadal) is a seven of person.
-¿Some book in the trips accompanies you?
-Not, not, almost do not I read. Is that me not the novels they entertain and as I am restless costs me to concentrate me a lot of while. They give me dream. I prefer the real histories, like those of other sportsmen. There was read the history of Maradona and on holiday I think to read me that of the cyclist Armstrong and that of Michael Jordan.
Nicolas asks pause to attend his cell one and continues: "to the extent that I have gone growing I interest me more with other things. Now I give me the time to travel through the cities in which I play, thinking that I am a privileged one in having the profession that have. There are incredible tournaments and fantastic places that do not want wasted".
-¿You feel that are in the half of your career?
-I am in the results consolidation phase and I have to put all my experience al service of my career. It is a pleasing sensation, as that of a young veteran that already passed various spools but that still conserves the energy to continue battling.
-¿And what place occupies the love in this period? Is very far away in your priorities?
-For now I am well single and alone. I do not deny that i would like to be accompanied, but the things have not been given so that I be with someone. Being tennis player the love is complicated and for the moment my priorities are the tennis and my family. To my people always the strange one when I am outside, but this hits is thus not more. I feel tranquil with the life that I carry and, good, so so alone I am not neither. Always something falls over there.
