03-13-2005, 03:34 PM
I've always thought Verdasco was a lucious looking man, but I figured he was one of those really good looking guys who were egotistical etc. You know the kind I'm talking about. :rolleyes:

But yesterday, I fell in love with his game, and I found out that he's a really nice guy too.

After this tough and bitter loss (a match he truly deserved to win if only he could have kept up his level of play under the severe pressure), Verdasco stopped and signed autographs..... not just a few autographs like the nice losers do, but he signed EVERY SINGLE one!! And there were lots there too because they were waiting for Andy to sign. I couldn't believe that he was actually doing that.

Also the crowd loved him. They gave him lots and lots of applause and cheers as he walked off the court. Not just polite clapping but real cheering. I could tell the crowd started loving him sometime around the end of the second set. They were cheering all of his great winners wildly. You could tell the crowd still wanted Andy to win, but they were loving what they were seeing from Verdasco.

Sometimes tennis is sucks! :sad: But as I read your report, he can be proud of himself! (as should we be!) And hopefully the draw in Miami is a little better for him!

Meanwhile, with Ferrero waiting out the suspension of a match he would quickly finish, flashy Fernando Verdasco, one of Los Galacticos (big stars) of Spanish tennis, had just beaten the rain and was in the clubhouse, celebrating his seventh victory of the season and talking excitedly about what could be a blockbuster rematch on Friday with Andy Roddick on the stadium court.

"Maybe he win. Maybe I win. But I know now I can win," said Verdasco, whose popularity in Madrid, buoyed by his romance with a famous TV personality, transcends his tennis.

He and Roddick, who possess two of the most powerful forehands in the game, went to a third-set tiebreak in a captivating slugging match a week ago in the second round at Indian Wells, Calif., and so it wasn't surprising that Dean Goldfine, Roddick's coach, was out on Court 7, scouting the Spaniard's 6-4, 7-5 victory over Peter Wessels.

Verdasco's face was lit up as if it was Christmas after this victory, and it had as much to do with getting another shot at Roddick as having reached the second round.

"I know it will be close," he said in his still-developing English.

"But for me, it's possible to win."

F. VERDASCO/A. Roddick
7-6, 4-3 (ret.)
An interview with:

FERNANDO VERDASCO

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Are you surprised the way it ended?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: Surprised, no, because the last match against him, it was so close, too, Indian Wells. There, after this match, I saw that I could win against him.

Q. When Andy came over to you to shake your hand and say, I guess, "I can't go on," do you remember almost exactly what he said?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: What he said, no. He said like in one ball on the first set, one forehand, he hit the ball, and then the wrist, he bent it.

And then after this point, he can't serve the kick, he only can serve with a slice and flat. And then he tell me like in the baseline, too, he have pain when he hit the ball with power.

Q. In the tiebreak, he had three set points. On the third one, I think it was at 9‑8, he had an opportunity to pass, backhand. Did you think it was a pretty easy shot, that he was going to make it?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: I don't know.

Q. He missed it, of course.
FERNANDO VERDASCO: Yeah, but in this points, there are no balls easy, you know. I think when you stay ‑‑ when you be 9‑8 in the tiebreak, then all the balls is difficult, no?

But I know that that is not so difficult. But when you stay in the court and you stay 9‑8 in the tiebreak, is more difficult that outside.

Q. Many of the players were in the locker room watching the match on television. People were saying, "This kid is fantastic, he's going to be Top 10, he doesn't make crazy mistakes on the court."
FERNANDO VERDASCO: I don't know (smiling). I didn't heard the players.

Q. Is it possible they meant your forehand is so fantastic that if you could play with more discipline that you will be Top 10 very soon?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: I don't know. I hope so. But I think to be Top 10 is really difficult and you need to win a lot of matches, no, and a lot of important matches, too.

Then today I won one of these ones. I play very good the first set, and the second set was a little more relaxed, like after the tiebreak. He and me too, we play good, but not in the same ‑‑ with the same feeling like the first set, no?

But I don't know. I think like I need to play all the matches like the first set against Andy today to be in Top 10, no? Is very difficult and I need to work a lot of things in the court to go to Top 10 player.

Q. Why do you think it is that in the last two matches you've given him so many problems? Is it something, do you think, especially in your game that upsets the way he wants to play?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: I don't know. I didn't ask to him this, no. But I think, like, I am left‑handed. For him is more difficult to play, no, because when he play the backhand cross to my forehand, then I have all the time, you know. I can play another time to his backhand or hit one, one forehand, to him, you know, his forehand, with more power, and then he goes running and I have always the time to dominate the point.

I think in the baseline, after the serve ‑‑ but if he serve good, it's not impossible but so, so difficult to return the serve. But when I play in the baseline, then I think like I have more chances to win the points like him.

Q. In the first set, when he broke back and he saved two overheads and the second one began to drift to the sideline and the one you hit into the net, was it a difficult overhead because the ball was drifting?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: It was difficult because the balls come very slowly, and with the wind, the balls move a lot. And then for me was very difficult, too, because all these points was very hard, very tough to all the time go in the baseline then go to the net. Then I didn't have ‑‑ I can't breathe, no, after all these points in the baseline. I was in the net the first match, then I hit the ball. I can't explain so well, no, but I was very tired in the end of this point. And when I missed the second, then I feel like I am dead. I know with 30‑40, there was a very important point. And then with nervous you have in this point to win the point, then it was a very tough point. I was so tired. I don't know, I was unbelievable tired.

Q. How difficult was it for you to have to come in and play in the Davis Cup tie this year in very, very difficult conditions for you?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: No, is easy (smiling).

Q. How hard was that?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: For me it was unbelievable experience, no, because it was my first time in Davis Cup in the team. There was, I feel ‑‑ after the Davis Cup, I feel so much better. This experience for me was very important. I know that it was very difficult to play in this court in Bratislava with the other team, but I play very good for me. Against Hrbaty, I play very good match, but I didn't see Hrbaty play like this match ‑ unbelievable. Like I play very, very good. But in important points, all the important points, or if he serve, then always the first serve in and then one forehand or backhand directly into the line, no? I said, like, "I can't believe this."

But all the time, all the after points like this, I feel better and I stay all the time with a lot of power to win all the points and win the match. But finally I can't, no, because he plays unbelievable.

Q. If you were to play Rafael in the second round, what sort of match do you think it will be?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: Spanish match (smiling).

I think there will be a great match with similar styles of games, yeah. The two players, lefties. I think it will be a very good match.

Q. Now for the most important question. As you probably know, David Beckham is threatening to leave Madrid because the photographers won't leave his family alone. Do you believe he is serious and will really leave?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: No, I don't think so. I will tell to him like it's impossible to go (laughing).

Q. Do you know him personally?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: Yeah, I know him.

Q. And you say, no, he's staying?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: He's staying, yeah, in my home. My team.

Q. Is there a rivalry between you few Real Madrid guys and the Barcelona guys?
FERNANDO VERDASCO: I think that always the people of Madrid and the people of Barcelona, always we have like friendly rivalries, but all with the football, no, all because football teams, soccer. Feliciano Lopez, Nadal and me are for Real Madrid. But like all the Barcelona people is from the football team Barcelona.

But it's great, it's okay.

THE MODERATOR: This year we have to be quiet because they're 11 points ahead.

I was at the Nando/Rafa match in Miami. Felt really bad for him - even though I like Rafa too, I like Nando better and really wanted to see him win. I missed the first three games, but asked people around me why he was broken on his first serve, and they said he appeared tight. From what I saw in the rest of the match, it seemed like he was coming close to breaking Rafa, but couldn't quite do it. And then when he broke Rafa early in the 2nd, but got broken right back, he just seemed to get really frustrated. Keep netting or overhitting some of the shots he had been making earlier (and definitely had made in the Andy match). He kept yelling towards where his coach was sitting and kind of waving his arms. I felt really bad for him.

Also saw his match with Andy - he played so well - definitely was outplaying Andy. Even if Andy hadn't retired, Fernando would have won.

BTW - does anyone know why he didn't play doubles with Feli????

Carlita
03-30-2005, 07:28 AM
:wavey: thanks for the report Nicofan! I love them both too!! But I wanted Fernando to win.....Rafael already won 2 trophies this year, and Fer deserves a break!

thanks for the report!! good to know he was playing well against Andy. Shame about the Rafa match though.

The question about the doubles is currently one of our unsolved mysteries!!! no one can seem to figure it out! and not only is he not playing with Feli but he's with this random Aussie dude! not even a latino! :eek:

NicoFan
03-30-2005, 03:25 PM
He does deserve a break! It really broke my heart watching him out there against Rafa. :-(

It is a mystery about Feli - they're usually attached at the hip...lol! :-) I was at the player hotel, and saw Feli with Rafa but no Nando. And the person I was with saw Feli another time, and again no Fernando with him.

And yes, what is up with not even a latino???? Never even heard of that guy.

loeliepoelie
03-30-2005, 04:08 PM
well the rumours about an argument aren't true, a friend of mine said Nando was watching Rafa and Feli play doubles. And that he was cheering for them. Maybe they are trying different double combo's for DC? And Nando then had to find someone else, but there weren't any latino's left.... Just a theory, lol!

NicoFan
03-30-2005, 04:19 PM
That's great to hear - I was kind of worried about them.

And think its great that they watch each other play. Feli was at Rafa's match against Schuettler too.

The singles draw's out and Nando is seeded 6. He gets a quali in the first round. He'll meet either another quali or Corretja in the second round, Koubek/Matos Gil/Costa/Davydenko in the quarters (Davydenko is the top seed). No, Rafa is not in his half of the draw. The only other seed in his part that he could meet in the semis is Ferrer. The doubles draw hasn't come out yet. Vamos Fer!!! :bounce:

Fernando verdasco tenista
“En dos años puedo ganar un Grand Slam”
El joven, que admira a Agassi, cree que los zurdos tienen más talento natural
A. RALLO/ VALENCIA

http://www.lasprovincias.es/valencia/pg050404/prensa/fotos/200504/04/4552563.jpg
Fernando Verdasco, ayer, minutos después de la entrevista en el Club de Tenis Valencia.

La ducha de Fernando Verdasco duró veinte minutos, tal y como prometió al terminar su entrenamiento en el Club de Tenis Valencia. No era LAS PROVINCIAS el único que aguardaba su salida. Su abuelo, Antonio Carmona, comentaba las hazañas de Alonso en la Fórmula 1, quizá soñando en que su Fernando se imponga a los rivales en la tierra batida igual que el asturiano lo hace sobre el asfalto.

–El chileno Fernando González, Nadal, Ferrero y el regreso de Kuerten. ¿Repetir el triunfo del año pasado parece misión imposible?

–Misión imposible, no. ¿Quién iba a decir que Nadal llegara a la final de Miami con los jugadores que había? Está claro que esta tercera edición es más dura, pero sigo pensando que puedo ganarlo igual que hice el año pasado.

–Además, también cuenta con la ayuda de su abuelo en la grada.

–Sí, el año pasado me acompañó y gané y esta edición espero que me dé la misma suerte.

–Con la victoria del año pasado comenzó a crecer como tenista. ¿Ha llegado ya a la mayoría de edad?

–Yo creo que no, todavía puedo mejorar muchas cosas. Estoy intentando conseguir más recursos en mi juego.

–Quizá un punto negro: la eliminación en la Davis contra Eslovaquia. ¿Qué ocurrió?
–Sabíamos que iba a ser muy complicado. Nunca habíamos jugado en una pista tan rápida, incluso ellos se mostraban extrañados los primeros días. Yo jugué muy bien mi partido, pero Hrbaty compitió como nunca. Yo estaba contento por mi encuentro, pero si el otro es mejor que tú...

–Usted reconoció que la clave está en la mentalidad y que cuando esta mejore haría cosas importantes. ¿Cómo funciona ahora su cabeza?
–Últimamente mucho mejor. Es una cosa que no puedes cambiar de un día para otro, pero cada vez estoy más asentado y tengo más experiencia en la pista.

–Ponga una fecha para ganar un Grand Slam.
–¿Para ganar un Grand Slam? –reflexiona unos segundos– Dos años.

–¿Wimbledon o Roland Garros?
–Me gustaría más ganar Wimbledon, pero soy realista y creo que debería mejorar en mi saque, en el revés cortado y una buena volea. Es mi torneo preferido. Aunque creo que es más asequible conseguir el triunfo en Roland Garros.

–Si pierde, ¿se enfadará como Mc Enroe? Dicen que lo imitaba cuando era pequeño.
–Sí, sí, de pequeño lo hacía. Cuando empezaba a jugar al tenis, con unos diez años, sí me cabreaba y rompía las raquetas. Pero ahora me he dado cuenta de que así lo único que haces es desconcentrarte y lo mejor es aguantarte, aunque las cosas salgan mal.

–Todos los zurdos tienen algo especial.
–Bueno, no sé. Se dice que los zurdos tienen más facilidad para el tenis y más ventajas, porque como hay menos, los diestros tienen que cambiar su esquema de juego cuando se enfrentan a nosotros. Todos los zurdos que he conocido –Ivanisevic, Ríos, Nadal y Feliciano– tienen mucho talento y más juego de nacimiento.

–Ya que habla de grandes jugadores, dígame a quién admira.
–De toda la vida a Agassi, me he fijado mucho en él y es uno de mis ídolos. Sampras también me gustaba, no por su juego, sino por los títulos que ha conseguido y que creo que lo han convertido en el mejor jugador de la Historia.

–Aparte de ídolos, también tendrá amigos.
–Amigos muchos. Con el que más relación tengo es con Feliciano López porque he entrenado con su padre y su hermano. El tenis ha estrechado lazos, pero nuestras familias han estado muy unidas desde siempre.

–¿Qué hace Fernando Verdasco cuando guarda las raquetas?
–Depende, en un torneo descansar. Fuera intento relajarme y hacer las cosas que me gustan. Por ejemplo, me apasiona esquiar, pero ya sé que es muy peligroso y siempre extremo las precauciones. Si hago el tonto me puedo romper una pierna y adiós a la temporada. También quedo con los amigos, voy al cine, practico el fútbol y el baloncesto...

–Lo de ver a la novia por la tele (su pareja es la actriz Dafne Fernández) parece que es una ventaja.
–(Sonríe) No la veo. Estoy casi siempre en el extranjero y la serie ( Un paso adelante ) allí no se ve. De los capítulos de la nueva temporada no he visto ninguno.

–En los ratos libres, se permite hasta posar con las últimas novedades de ropa. ¿Enganchado a la moda?
–Sí, es una cosa que me gusta mucho. La moda y todo lo que es ropa de vestir desde siempre me ha atraído. Intento fijarme en las nuevas tendencias y colecciones. Me gusta ir siempre bien vestido y no un poco dejado. Tengo amigos con tiendas de ropa que me aconsejan.

–¿Cómo lleva la legión de admiradoras que le sigue?
–No, tampoco es para tanto. Los futbolistas tienen más que los tenistas. Conozco jugadores del Madrid y cuando voy con ellos es una barbaridad ver cómo se les tiran encima. Yo siempre intento dedicar a mis fans todo el tiempo posible, porque son muy importantes para mí. Algunas me acompañan a los torneos y tienen páginas web con mis fotos. Me alegra muchísimo que haya gente que le guste cómo juego y que me sigan.

Fernando Verdasco tennis player
"In 2 years I'll be able to win a Grand Slam"
"The youngster, who looks up to Agassi, believes lefthanders have more natural talent"

Photo caption: Fernando Verdasco, yesterday, a few minutes after the interview in the Valencia Tennis Club

Fernando Verdasco's shower lasted 20 minutes, and just as he promised after finishing his practice at the Valencia Tennis Club. It wasn't just LAS PROVINCIAS (Spanish newspaper) that was waiting for him to come out. His grandfather, Antonio Carmona, was talking about the great achievements of Alonso in Formula 1, perhaps dreaming that his Fernando would beat his rivals on clay just like the man from Asturias is doing on the asphalt.

-The Chilian Fernando Gonzalez, Nadal, Ferrero and Kuerten's comeback. Repeating last year's win seems like a mission impossible?
Mission imnpossible, no. Who would have thought that Nadal would reach the final of Miami with the players that were there? Obviously this third Open is tougher, but I keep thinking that I can win it like I did last year.

- And you've also got the support of your grandfather in the stands.
Yes, last year he came with me and I won and this time I hope he'll bring me the same good luck.

- With last year's victory, you started to develop as a tennis player. Have you come of age?
I don't think so, I can still improve lots of things. I'm trying to get more resources into my game.

- Perhaps a black mark: being eliminated in the Davis Cup against the Slovak Republic. What happened?
We knew it was going to be very tough. We had never played on a court that fast, even they seemed a bit puzzled for the first few days. I played my match very well, but Hrbaty played like never before. I was happy with my match, but if the other is better than you...

- You recognised that the key is mentality and that when that improves, you would do big things. How is your head working now?
Lately, much better. It's something you can't change from day to day, but each time I'm more settled and I have more experience on the court.

- Tell me when you'll win a Grand Slam
Win a Grand Slam? -thinks for a few seconds- 2 years.

- Wimbledon or Roland Garros?
I'd prefer to win Wimbledon, but I'm realistic and I think I should improve on my serve, my short backhand and my volley. It's my favourite tournament. Although I think I'm more likely to win Roland Garros.

- If you lose, do you get angry like McEnroe? They say you used to imitate him when you were younger.
Yes, yes, I used to do that when I was younger. When I started playing tennis, when I was about 10, I definitely used to get very annoyed and break racquets. But now I've realised that doing that only makes you lose concentration and the best thing is to be patient, even if things turn out badly.

- All lefthanders have something special.
Well, I don't know. Apparently lefthanders find tennis easier and they have more advantages because, since there are fewer of them, the righthanders have to change their game plan when they play us. All the lefthanders that I've known - Ivanisevic, Rios, Nadal and Feliciano - have lots of talent and a more natural game from birth.

- Since we're talking about great players, tell me who you admire.
I admired Agassi my whole life, I've looked up to him a lot and he's one of my idols. I also liked Sampras, not because of his game, but because of the titles he won and I think that's made him the best player in history.

- Apart from idols, you must also have friends.
Lots of friends. My closest friend is Feliciano López because I've trained with his father and his brother. Tennis has brought us even closer, but our families have always been very close-knit.

- What does Fernando Verdasco do when he puts away his racquets?
Depends, during a tournament, rest. Away from tournaments, I try to relax and do things I like. For example, I'm a passionate skier, but I know it's dangerous and I always take extra precautions. If I behave stupidly, I could break a leg and then it's "goodbye season". I also meet up with friends, go to the movies, play football and basketball...

- Being able to watch your girlfriend on tv (his partner is actress, Dafne Fernandez) seems like an advantage.
(smiles) I don't watch her. I'm almost always abroad and the series (Un Paso Adelante) isn't shown there. I haven't seen any episodes of the new season.

- In your free time, you even allow yourself to pose in the new season clothes. Fashion addict?
Yes, it's something I really like. Fashion and all things to do with clothes and dressing up has always interested me. I try to pay attention to the latest trends and collections. :tape: I always like to be well dressed and not a bit scruffy. I have friends in clothes stores who advise me :tape:

- How do you cope with hordes of female admirers that follow you?
No, it's not all that many. Footballers have more than tennis players. I know Real Madrid players and when I go out with them, it's madness how they throw themselves at them. I always try to dedicate as much time as possible to my fans, because they're very important to me. Some come with me to tournaments and have webpages with photos of me. It makes me really happy that there are people who like how I play and follow me.
