Re: Back to Melbourne Park, AO 07

A video of Fabrice's press conference on the Eurosport website:
http://video.eurosport.com/2007/01/2..._3_320x240.wmv
He isn't sure to come back to Melbourne, but he doesn't want to think about it yet.
He looks a bit sad and melancholic though when he says that, he explains 5 of the 10 best moments of his career happened here in Australia (with the DC), it means a lot to him.

Re: Back to Melbourne Park, AO 07

In L'Équipe:
« C'est une défaite en trois manches, mais c'est mon meilleur match du tournoi. Davydenko, c'est une machine. C'est un joueur remarquable, il me pose beaucoup de problèmes, c'est le seul à pouvoir m'agresser comme ça. Il renvoie tout très vite et très bien. Quand vous avez l'impression de très bien jouer et que vous êtes quand même mené deux sets à zéro, vous vous dites : mais que faire pour gagner ? Contre lui, je ne sais pas comment m'y prendre. C'est à mourir des trucs comme ça ! C'est-à-dire que si ça durait encore une demi-heure, je finissais aux urgences. Franchement, je préfère encore jouer Nadal. »
He lost in 3 sets, but it was his best match of the tournament in his opinion. Davydenko is a machine, he's admirable. No other player is able to attack every ball like that. He returns everything and very fast. When you're playing very well and you're down 0-2 in the sets, you feel like: 'But what am I supposed to do to win this??' It 'kills' him. If they had played 30 more minutes, he would have landed in the hospital. He even prefers to play Nadal!

(In his audio interview on the FFT website, he also says he prefers to play Fed over Davydenko. He obviously won't beat Fed either, but at least he knows what to do, how to play against him. With Davydenko, he feels completely helpless.)

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
