Re: Articles & Interviews

I forgot an important paragraph:

Concerning his image after the "affair":

I could play again, this is key: The image, I dont think about it so much. Honestly, I am not mad about communication. This was never a priority, the important for me ist to play tennis, and then, honestly, I don't think that it harmed me. Whereever I play, it is fine. I think that the people even showed me a bit of compassion, having said that, I deserved it.

Re: Articles & Interviews

Thank you Puschkin.

Sounds like he has his head together and is at peace with who he is.

Re: Articles & Interviews

Once Mauresmo said that difference between her and Richard was that she was ready to "die oncourt, while Richard just want to play tennis."

Re: Articles & Interviews

Anyway, the point is that she found success not because she fought especially hard but because she found a way to control her nerves

Re: Articles & Interviews

Gasquet plus agressif face aux micros

Richard Gasquet a toujours autant de mal à assumer les défaites. Sèchement battu par Rafael Nadal (6-3, 6-0, 6-1), le Biterrois a évoqué en conférence de presse le deuxième jeu du deuxième set comme le tournant du match, un jeu acharné que Gasquet a perdu. Dans les séances de questions-réponses qui ont suivi, Richard Gasquet a montré son agacement. A un journaliste lui demandant s'il avait lâché mentalement à l'issue de ce jeu perdu, Gasquet a répondu : « Je vais t'envoyer sur le terrain contre Nadal et on va voir ce qui va t'arriver ». Dommage que le Français n'ait pas montré autant de répondant et d'agressivité sur le court.

Richie lashing out at journalistes. Asked about a mental lapse after the 2nd game/2nd set when he was broken, he is quoted saying: "I will send you on the court against Nadal and we'll see what will happen to you."

It is certainly not what you learn in media courses, but I like it.

Re: Articles & Interviews

Also agressive and bad-humored on this interview, some questions were not very clever. But I prefer him when not consensual

http://www.republicain-lorrain.fr/sp...ichard-gasquet

Chaque jour, un champion du Moselle Open se découvre avec lequel des trois…

Une partie de tennis pour le plaisir avec Borg, McEnroe ou Noah ? « Noah. »

Un match de foot à Barcelone, Manchester ou Milan ? « PSG ou Montpellier. Oui, Montpellier. »

Entre Tony Parker, Bolt ou Phelps ? « Tony Parker que par ailleurs je connais peu. »

Une rencontre avec Karl Marx, Gandhi ou Kennedy ? « Vous n’avez pas quelqu’un qui est français ? »

Une danse avec Lady Gaga, Madonna ou Beyonce ? « Aucune de trois. En plus, je ne sais pas danser ? Pas question donc… »

Un dîner en amoureux avec Jennifer Lopez, Marylin Monroe, Megan Fox ? « Je ne suis pas amoureux de l’une ou de l’autre. Cela ne peut pas être le cas. Pour l’instant, le dîner se passera avec ma mère. »

Vous voulez discuter politique : Sarkozy, Obama ou Andrea Merkel ? « Sarkozy. »

Vous préférez avoir un compte en banque aux Etats-Unis, en Suisse ou en France ? « Ah, non, pas ça. Pas de réponse. »

Une fête à Miami, Berlin ou Ibiza ? « Paris. »

Voiture : Bentley Continental, Lamborghini Gallardo ou Audi R8 ? « Ce n’est pas un truc énorme pour moi, d’accord j’ai une Aston (Martin)… »

Foie gras, pizza ou glace ? « Les trois. »

Une partie de carte avec Federer, Djokovic ou Nadal ? « Une belote à quatre. »

Un match de tennis féminin avec Mauresmo, Graf ou Sabatini ? « Mauresmo. »
