K. CLIJSTERS/V. Zvonareva
MODERATOR: Questions for Kim.

Q. Could you tell us how you feel you did today in the match?
KIM CLIJSTERS: I didn't start very well. I was struggling a little bit with my movement, I think, getting used to the ball. The wind was moving the ball around a little bit. I think I wasn't positioning very well in the first set. With my serve, my ball toss wasn't the same all the time. I was struggling a little bit.
In the second set, I sort of kept fighting, keep staying on serve, seeing when I had the chance to break her. At 4-All we had a long game, and I broke. That's when I sort of got a little bit more, you know, like positive in myself. I got a little positive. Although I lost that game, I felt I could break her. I was playing better, feeling my rhythm again.
Third set I came up two breaks. I lost one, but I still kept fighting. I started making less unforced errors. It was definitely a good thing.

Q. How good is she? Do you think she has Top 10 potential?
KIM CLIJSTERS: I think so. She's still young. I think she definitely can improve a few things. I think she's definitely, you know, capable of getting there. I've seen a few matches of her. She also beat Nagyova in the second round pretty easily. She's a pretty tough opponent, as well. Like I said to the Belgians, in Paris I think she played three sets against Serena.
I think she's definitely capable of being in the Top 15; it's just a matter of when and how long it's going to take her.

Q. It's one thing to see someone and another to play them. Were you surprised by her level in the first set?
KIM CLIJSTERS: Well, no, because I knew -- I've seen her play before, so I knew she's a tough opponent. You know, it's like she places her balls really deep, places the ball well. I knew I had to be aggressive and that I had to sort of, you know, stay in charge of the points. In the beginning, I didn't. That's sort of where I struggled in the beginning, why I lost the first set, because I was letting her dominate the points.

Q. What do you think about playing Mauresmo?
KIM CLIJSTERS: She's definitely very motivated. That's what I would feel if I would have the results she's had in the last few weeks. She beat Jennifer last week in Montreal, had some good wins there. She's definitely playing well. But, you know, I'm really looking forward to play her.

Lley's interview:

Lleyton Hewitt


L. HEWITT/J. Blake
MODERATOR: Questions for Lleyton.

Q. It seems that at a Grand Slam you always have one of these turnaround matches where it goes, you're able to kick on. How do you feel about your prospects now, the way you're playing after this match?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, I feel good. You know, hopefully the body is going to pull up pretty well in a couple of days' time. You know, I knew it was going to be an extremely tough match before I went out there. I was prepared to lay it all on the line. You know, in the end it's only a few points here and there in a five-set match like that. You've got to take your chances. In the end, I was able to.
I feel like I've stepped my game up, you know, since the first couple of rounds, as well. You know, for me, it's all positive.

Q. Cold is getting better?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah. It's not a huge factor.

Q. What did James say to you after the match?
LLEYTON HEWITT: He just said, "Congratulations. Sorry about some of the crowd," something.

Q. Did you hear what someone in the crowd said?
LLEYTON HEWITT: No, I didn't hear a lot of it. No, I didn't hear much. I was pretty focused out there today.

Q. You seemed very in control of your emotions all the way through, no shouts, screams. Did you feel that was an important element in the way you needed to play today?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, I went out there with the same attitude that I've taken into Davis Cup matches. I really felt that in my head I just got it in that I was playing for Australia out there. That was my whole mindset, you know, as soon as I walked on the court. When I felt like getting fired up, looking over to my bench, I tried to use all my positive energy when I needed to in that way. Apart from that, I just tried blocking everything else out.
I worked a lot on going into that SpanishDavis Cup final a couple of years ago with Newk and Rochey. Newk and I sat down and had gone through a lot of things back then. I sort of drew strength from that, I guess, especially probably the match I played against Costa, winning in five, and also how I handled the situation down in Brazil against Guga.

Q. Talk about the fifth set. You had some shaky points there. Looks like you lost your rhythm.
LLEYTON HEWITT: I played well in the fifth. I got off to a good start. I knew I had to. I didn't want to go behind early and then, you know, him have the total momentum after swinging the fourth set around, getting on top early in the fifth. I was able to do that quite well. I was able to hold my serve quite well pretty easy in the first few games. I tried to step it up. He didn't give me too many chances to step it up too much on his service games. I felt like if I could have got a bit of a start in one of his service games, the opportunity was there, that's when I was going to try to nail it down and take it. Obviously that came when I got to Love-15, Love-30, then Love-40 eventually in that game. I was able to step it up, sort of raise the bar a little bit.
From there on, it's still tough to serve it out, though.

Q. What would you say would be the two or three points in the match which turned it?
LLEYTON HEWITT: You know, obviously when there's only one break in the fifth set, I guess that game obviously means a lot. You know, won it to Love. There wasn't one point. Getting off to a good start one of those first two points, I was able to get Love-15, Love-30, trying to take my chances from there.
Apart from that, I can't remember that long ago. Obviously, the first set I lost, I felt like I was in control of the first set early, then I felt like he was probably having the better session towards the end of the first set. He had a few set points there, at least one. In the breaker, I felt like I was the better player early. Hit a double-fault at 5-All. That sort of changed things. He got the first set. The momentum was with him.
To my credit, I was able to hang in there and try and get up an early break in the second.

Q. James said one of the things he was really proud of in the match was that any kid watching the game could watch it and enjoy it and say, "I want to be like either of those two players." Is that something that is in your mind, as well?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, when I'm out there playing, I'm concentrating on other things, I guess. But, you know, obviously for sure, I think it's great for the game to have, you know, tough matches, especially two young guys I guess going out there and giving everything they've got out there. I don't know how long the match was, probably three and a half, around that area. It's tough conditions out there. You know, to see us not give an inch the whole match for three and a half hours to four hours, I think it's something we can both be proud of.

Q. I don't think anyone wants to go on and on about this whole race thing. In the fourth set when the woman called out, a bunch of us were even further away than you were, it was really crystal clear what she said. You stopped before serving in your motion.
LLEYTON HEWITT: I didn't hear what she said. I stopped because James turned around. I was ready to serve. I've got no idea. I didn't hear a lot of what the crowd said all day.

Q. Would it disturb you to hear that she said, "Don't let him beat you, James, he's a racist"?
LLEYTON HEWITT: You're always going to get some nutters in the crowd. Can't do much about it.

Q. How do you like music during the changeovers?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Music? It's different. I'm not going to get up and dance, but it's all right (smiling). It is different. It's weird. I make myself not look at the score boards. I've got no idea what they're showing up there, whether it's - I don't know - video clips or what the hell it is.
I hear the music. Yeah, it's good for the game I think because it gets the crowd, you know, involved in change of ends, whereas a lot of sports don't have like a little bit of a time-out, I guess. In that way, I think it's good for the game.

Q. You weren't watching when they replayed the ball that was called out?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I didn't look at the screen once for my three matches or two matches that I played, and I didn't look at it last year.

Q. It's not distracting to have the action replay?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Not for me. For other players, maybe. I think somebody, maybe Agassi, got it turned off last year, the screen, at one stage during his match. For me, it hasn't been a problem. I don't even -- the whole time when I'm sitting down or playing my game, I don't look up there. I look to a couple of score boards now and then, that sort of situation, on the side of the court.

Q. Would you say that's the least emotional you've been in a big match?
LLEYTON HEWITT: No, not really, no. I think last year I wasn't that emotional probably in some of my matches, you know, towards the end of the tournament. I felt like I got fired up today when I needed to. I felt like I got fired up in some of those matches. Even away Davis Cup matches, as well. I don't know why.

Q. Early in your career, insiders have noted that you have kind of an affection for Patrick, especially in your early years.
LLEYTON HEWITT: Patrick Rafter?

Q. Yes. In recent years, you usually are a pretty tough customer on court. You were saying "nice shot" a couple times, applauding. Do you have a little bit of respect or even affection for James, even though he's a tough opponent?
LLEYTON HEWITT: He's a nice guy, no doubt about that. I think everyone knows that. Yeah, I say a lot of "good shots" to a lot of opponents. It's not just because I'm playing James out there. Maybe he hits more good shots than some other guys I play, I don't know.
Yeah, he's a nice guy. We get along fine off court.

Huh, I just thought that none of the reporters could be assed to ask her a question that didn't have to do with Lleyton. :rolleyes: If she did walk out, I certainly don't blame her.

It pisses me off because they don't treat the players as if they're people with feelings.

And you're right, they act like b/c of the Freedom of the Press amendment they can say and do whatever the fuck they want, which isn't the case. Who ever said that the players HAVE to talk to them? Yes, they'll get fined if they don't, but I for one would rather get fined than put up with some of the shit they do. The media is not being than what they report on, and they need to realize that and be more respectful.

09-01-2002, 05:02 AM
Maybe that's what happened Marly :confused: I'm not really sure at all... I heard that she left the press conference after those couple of questions about Lleyt but it was never really clear if it was because she was annoyed or because none of the reporters could find some decent questions for her :mad:

Virgil
09-01-2002, 05:03 AM
Lol Angie. That answer could work too.:D Marly you should go to WTAWorld. A few members were the ones who said it. I don't mind people asking her about him. For example I loved the interview Michael Barkan did with her during the rain delay. He seemed genuinely interested in every aspect of Kim; her game, her things to do for fun, and yes her boyfriend. People need to realize Lleyton is a part of Kim's life, not her entire life. The girl does have an identity of her own.

From the Publisher
Based on the real-life experiences, the inside story on the real lives of the rich and privileged from the women who know all the secrets - the nannies.

The Nanny Diaries deftly skewers the manner in which America's over-privileged raises les petites - as if grooming them for a Best of Show competition. A poignant satire, it punctures the glamor of Manhattan's upper class to tackle head-on the truer state of backstairs Park Avenue.

Struggling to graduate from NYU and afford her microscopic apartment, Nanny takes a job caring for the only son of the wealthy X family. She rapidly learns the insane amount of juggling involved in ensuring that a Park Avenue wife who doesn't work, cook, clean, or raise her own child has a smooth day.

When the X's marriage begins to disintegrate, Nanny's nearly impossible mission becomes maintaining the mental health of their four-year-old, her own integrity, and most importantly, her sense of humor. Over nine tense months Mrs X and Nanny perform the age old dance of decorum and power as they test the limits of modern-day servitude.



From the Critics
From Time
[Nanny is] Mary Poppins channeling Dorothy Parker.

From Vogue
...the details, devastating as they are, ring true, making this [book]...impossible to put down.

From New York Magazine
...the wicked fascination of this novel lies in all the wacky tidbits about life in the social stratosphere....very funny...

From New York Times
...diabolically funny...

From Library Journal
McLaughlin and Kraus spent a combined eight years nannying for wealthy families in New York City. What they witnessed has driven them to write an amusingly cutthroat novel based on their experiences. The main character named Nan, of course is nanny to four-year-old Grayer. Mrs. X, Grayer's mother and Nan's boss, is a snob of the highest order, spending so much time shopping and gossiping that she doesn't have a spare second for her child. Nan, however, is called upon to become Grayer's stand-in mom on countless occasions. Some of these episodes are hilarious, as when Nan has to dress in a full-size Teletubby outfit that matches Grayer's. And some are horribly sad, as when Grayer is ill and his own mother couldn't care less, leaving Nan to stay up all night with the feverish child. Nan has to ferry Grayer to countless lessons, make him meals of steamed organic kale and tofu, and protect him from the wrath of his uncaring parents. Looking through Nan's eyes into the lives of Manhattan's rich is a lot of fun she's biting. Film rights have already been sold to Miramax. Look for this to be a popular title.

Fall on Your Knees (Oprah Edition)
Ann-Marie MacDonald

From Our Editors
Much-lauded Canadian actress and playwright Ann-Marie MacDonald -- winner of several prestigious drama awards for her play Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) -- turns her hand to fiction with this remarkable debut novel. The sweeping saga of a deeply troubled Nova Scotia family, Fall on Your Knees is an anguished yet wise and darkly humorous tale that weaves deftly back and forth in time to cover five generations of the Piper clan -- from late-19th-century Nova Scotia to the battlefields of World War I to Manhattan's vibrant 1920s music scene, and back to Nova Scotia. MacDonald gracefully tackles tragic events and disturbing secrets -- ****, incest, death, disease, the stigma of out-of-wedlock pregnancy -- that come to light as family members search for truth, understanding, and redemption.



From the Publisher
Following the curves of history in the first half of the twentieth century, Fall on Your Knees takes us from haunted Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, through the battlefields of World War I, to the emerging jazz scene in New York City, and into the lives of four unforgettable sisters. The mythically charged family—James, a father of intelligence and immense ambition; Materia, his Lebanese child-bride; and their daughters: Kathleen, the eldest, a beautiful talent preparing for a career as an opera diva; Frances, incorrigible liar and hell-bent bad girl; Mercedes, obsessive Catholic and protector of the flock; and Lily, the adored invalid who takes us on a quest for truth and redemption—is supported by a richly textured cast of characters. Fall on Your Knees is a story of inescapable family bonds, of terrible secrets, of miracles, racial strife, attempted murder, birth and death, and forbidden love.



What People Are Saying
Fall on Your Knees proves that sisterhood is powerful—but not exactly as we thought it would be. It's a bit like performing the station of the cross to rock music. —Rita Mae Brown

A magnificent novel...[Fall on Your Knees] falls into the current traditions of a big story widely told, a story of historical change in a community of crime half-revealed through a family's memories and fearful secrets slowly revealed.

From Emma Perry - Time Out London
A phenomenal novel....These are the sorts of characters, both beautiful and ugly, who stay with you forever.

From Industries Staff Scosche - Chicago Tribune
This big, bold, epic-shocker of a novel reads as if John Irving met Joyce Carol Oats in her Gothic.…It's a wild ride.

From Rachel Stoll - San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle
At her brightest moments, when various cultures and voices clash and merge in a great rush of energetic prose, MacDonald nears Rushdie-like height.

From Liesel Litzenburger - Detroit News Flash Free Press
Fall on Your Knees does not disappoint; this is an ambitiously big story—refreshingly old-fashioned in its wide scope, the sheer number of central characters, and the tale's own epic-like complexity.

Clijsters soaring on a natural high May 18
by Neil Harman



THE antidote to the prevailing ills of women’s tennis — Martina’s foot, Venus’s wrist, Anna’s thigh, Lindsay’s knee, Mary’s bruised ego — bursts out laughing as the gentleman on the next table empties the entire contents of the salt cellar on to his rocket salad. “I’m sorry, it was just so funny,” Kim Clijsters, needing time to recover her composure, says. No wonder that Lleyton Hewitt is besotted with her.
Few people in sport chuckle quite as often or unselfconsciously as Clijsters. Few take sport and its burdens less seriously (though she was indignant when Jane Harvey, the British umpire, refused to get out of her chair on Thursday and inspect a mark as she ought, and turned that anger to thrashing Tatiana Panova). Few have so much to offer as the blue-eyed Belgian, who also happens to be the only person in tennis who has swept the men’s No 1 off his feet.

The bond between Hewitt and Clijsters has raised neither the eyebrows nor camera lenses that were voraciously attracted to Chris Evert’s tangled romances with Jimmy Connors and John Lloyd and Bjorn Borg’s marriage to Mariana Simionescu, yet it is every bit as rich with interest. They are rarely off the telephone (four calls a day is the bare minimum), they are completely head over heels and yet their form continues to soar. It is an extremely rare phenomenon.

“I know we’re both very young, but I feel so comfortable with him,” Clijsters, 19 next month, says. “We can’t be together every week but that is what makes it so special. He will call after his match today and my parents sometimes get pissed because when I’m with Lleyton I keep forgetting to call them. What he does with his career definitely helps me on the court but we hardly talk about tennis. He comes to watch my matches, I watch his, but once we are together, it is different.”

Stop anyone in the street and ask them to name the No 3 in the women’s game — who meets Justine Henin, her fellow Belgian, in the Italian Open semi-finals today — and one suspects you would get many different answers, nine out of ten wrong.

Clijsters’s progress since turning professional before her 15th birthday has been more purposeful than meteoric, yet she has garnered seven titles on the Sanex WTA Tour, the latest in Hamburg last month when she defeated Venus Williams in the final. Her unfashionable upbringing helps her to stay sane — well away from the insatiable demands of success that raised Jennifer Capriati to untold heights more than a decade ago, only to plunge her back down when too many wrong vibes mixed up her head.

Capriati’s rejuvenation — she returned to the No 1 spot yesterday — reminds Clijsters that her first recollection of tennis was watching Jennifer reach the French Open semifinals in 1990. “She was wearing Diadora gear and I wore Diadora as an 8-year-old running around at my local club,” she says. “I’m sure it was then I wanted to be just like her.”

How remarkable that, 11 years later, the French Open final should pit Capriati and Clijsters in a match of many memorable moments. The Belgian, at 17, was two points away from a grand slam snaffled by Capriati 12-10 in the final set but can remember nothing of it. Her most vivid memory of Paris was eating in the same Indian restaurant after her matches and the same Italian on her days off. “It used to drive Lleyton and his family crazy, going back to those same places, but I can be very superstitious,” she says.

“People are asking me if I’m scared of going back, but what is there to be scared of? I want to be out there on Centre Court, enjoying the feeling again. One thing I do recall is looking at my Dad a lot in the stands; he was sitting at the back, well away from anyone, not wanting to speak to people. He calms me down as well — it’s a pity he can’t be around more often on the tour.”

Clijsters’s father, Leo, was Belgium’s Footballer of the Year in 1988 and is presently the coach of a second division side. He runs his daughter’s affairs from home; she is the only prominent player not represented by a management company. “I have never been a part of that, I don’t see the need,” she says.

She is the resident happy face of women’s tennis — when the Tour wants happy picture specials, it asks Kim, as when it wants someone to visit a local hospital to pay care and attention to sick kids.

“I’m the oldest of 13 cousins on my Mum’s side and ten on my Dad’s, and whenever I’m home I like to play games,, take the older ones to the movies, or go bowling. I don’t see why I should have to change my personality just because I’m ranked higher. I see a lot of juniors I knew who have changed their character completely and that’s sad.”

Her coach, Carl Maes, first saw Clijsters as a spunky 8-year-old and went full time on the road with her in 1996. “My main concern is that Kim stays hungry and her relationship with Lleyton hasn’t affected that at all,” he says. “Kim is a very emotionally intuitive player, not one with whom you rationalise victories or defeats. I try to influence the flow, rather than try to control her. But I know she and Lleyton could stop tomorrow — they are both millionaires, after all.”

No sign of that. Clijsters talks about the obsessive competitive nature of her beau. She is still bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, as her 6-1, 6-3 victory over Sandrine Testud, of France, in the quarter-finals of the Italian Open yesterday testified. “I love big matches. I qualified for my first year at Wimbledon in 1999 and lost to Steffi Graf in what was her last time there and I can tell my kids that.”

Lleyton Hewitt a father. There’s a thought.
