Re: What is said about Richard...

As there is not much tennis talk, here an interview of Sergi Bruguera who mentions Richard http://www.grandchelem.net/mon_weblo...-bruguera.html

Est-ce que c’est lié au fait que l’Espagne est un pays jeune qui a beaucoup à montrer, arrive dans l’Europe, qui a faim ? Est-ce que c’est une question de société ?

C’est difficile d’aller jusqu’à parler d’un problème de société. Ce que je sais, c’est qu’en Espagne, si tu arrives jusqu’en quart ou demi-finales, la presse ne te donnera pas beaucoup de notoriété. Alors que le Français qui fait deux tours à Roland-Garros, il est en première page de l’Equipe. En Espagne, tu fais deux tours, personne n’entendra parler de toi. Gasquet n’a encore rien fait d’important à Paris, mais il y a un moment où on va tout le temps parler de lui.


The journalist asks questions about spanish players' successes. And Bruguera replied that a spanish player has to reach the quarter or semi final to get attention from the medias while when french players gets through 2 rounds they are on l'équipe's frontpage. "Gasquet hasn't done anything in Paris yet but every time they talk about him in the medias.

I thought he was exagerating so I checked and here is what I found:
(Roland Garros had not even started yet )

"Gasquet hasn't done anything in Paris yet but every time they talk about him in the medias.
I am wondering if this is the correct translation?

Even if Richard has not won Roland Garros, there is good reason that people talk about him more than about your dull tennis, Senor Bruguera.

Well my english is not good enough to translate better.
Maybe... Gasquet hasn't done anything important in Paris but at a given moment, they always talk about him.


Btw, the interview took place in september before Paris MS.

I should shut up, because neither English nor French are my mother tongues, , but I give it a try:

Gasquet hasn't done anything important in Paris but there is a moment when one will talk about him all the time.

This is adds a totally different message, but I am probably wrong, the context does not indicate this twist.

I am not sure about this, but your french is certainly far beyond my level.

Well, you say: At a given moment, they talk about him all the time.

I say: At a given moment they WILL talk about him all the time (i.e after he has won Roland Garros, become nr 1, etc.....) implying that Bruguera thinks Richard can achieve this.

But as said: I am probably reading too much into this dull Spaniard's utterings.

What levels of discussion we can reach in these terrible times without tennis?

Re: What is said about Richard...

I understand it the same way as Julie. He means people always end up talking about Richie.

Hey Sergi, ever thought that it's cuz he's more fun to watch on the court than many (not all) of those boring/one dimensional Spanish players. Sometimes I'm sure Richie would prefer no press than the kind he gets.

Thanks for the ultimate judgement. I bow down to the native speakers. But you have to admit that my attempt for a more positive message was a worthy one.

Exactly, Bruguera was the most boring of all.

Re: What is said about Richard...

I think brugera is right and in the same time wrong in that commentary

right--> that'must be true that spanish medias are different and dont aprehend roland garros the same way as the french one.
They interest in players only if they go far there, not before,they put less pressure.Yes ok.Its perhaps the case.

wrong--> when he talk and compare this statement with richard cause I think its quite "logical" that french medias are interested and talk about him.Its been 24 years since a french player won roland garros,its been a long time and if you see its the same every year.They are expecting much from richard but its because he's the french n°1 and the biggest hope(with phm ) to win this home slam.
I think its a part of a tennisman job to deal with that.Try to protect from that,thing that richard didnt do this year with the sad issue that we all know in 2rd against vliegen.

Hopefully this wont happen again and that he will learn from that for the next years.But the fact is that "this media attention"" will last till anther french player win roland.In every "slam country",medias are usually expecting much from their home players.The French are hard but I think that the others are as exigent as them,especially the British.Ask Tim Henman, and now its Murray who has to deal with a whole Nation hopes on his only shoulders.
I find bruguera comment quite "easy" to make, this kind of comparaison,difference about the medias to explain richard "bad trip" this year.
For me,its more about how a player can do to prepare good enough for a home slam and to protect himself from medias,
there is only one solution in the richard case IMO: to gain much more experience,confidence by winning tough matches against more and more top players.Improve his game as much as he can and win big tournaments. Then he wont be affected by what the medias write about him and how big the expectations are before the tournament.If I have one advice for him:
Just forget and dont read what could be said about you. Try to do your best and be YOU.

PS: oh! thats true that Bruguera was boring to watch,never could finish one of his match cause I got

GASQUET

Tsonga - Simon - Monfils - Mathieu - Chardy - Baghdatis
Mannarino - Safin - Santoro - Gulbis- Nishikori

Re: What is said about Richard...

Some words about Richard from a Larri Passos interview(Guga's current coach):

Avez-vous déjà envisagé de collaborer avec un autre professionnel sur le circuit ?
Pour l’instant, c’est hors de question. Je ne peux pas travailler, ou envisager de travailler, avec quelqu’un d’autre que Guga. C’est seulement après Roland-Garros 2008 que je pourrais étudier la question. Ce que je peux vous dire, c’est que Gasquet me voulait en 2005. Il est revenu à la charge il y a quelques mois aussi, mais ce n’était pas possible. En tout cas, je l’aime bien ce garçon…

- Have you ever considered working with another pro on the tour?
For the moment, it's out of question. I can't work or consider working with anybody else than Guga. I will only consider it after Roland Garros 2008. What I can tell you is that Gasquet wanted to work with me back in 2005 (A huge surprise to me ) He asked me again some months ago but it was not possible. Anyway, I kind of like this kid...

This should make some people happy.

Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
