Almagro leads their head to head 3-2 :unsure: But Igor won the last time they played. Igor's playing so well right now and he plays better on hardcourt compared to Almagro.

01-17-2006, 09:40 AM
i am kind of scared of Sluiter. he is a dangerous opponent

"No. 23 Igor Andreyev is Russia's only other men's seed, but has the wind in his sails after making the Sydney International final, where he lost 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 to American James Blake on Saturday.
Both Andreyev and Davydenko are in Federer's half of the draw, and either Russian could play the Swiss in the quarterfinals."

is Igor's name spelled correctly? i know it is spelled like that in speech but in writing 2?

{Annie}
01-17-2006, 10:03 AM
Igor spells it Andreev when writing in English but when you want people to know how to pronouce it, you're better off with Andreyev :lol:

Wow what a close 5 setter for Igor today. I'm soooo glad he made it through. Igor finished it off in style with a 6-2 final set, very nice. I hope it wasen't too hot for him today.

01-20-2006, 08:39 AM
Dunno abt mixed doubles ;) But... :)

Today I saw an fresh new interview of Igor on TV. I wasn’t at home and couldn’t record it, but tried to write down as much as possible. Though I didn’t see the interview from the beginning. BTW, after Igor Don Jose was asked several questions. So here it is. Hope it’s close to the original ;)


IGOR

– When did you start feeling that people meet you and want to communicate with you not as a person, but as a famous tennis player?
– I don’t think if I go into the street I’ll be recognised. Russia’s huge, Moscow’s huge also… Maybe there are some people interested in tennis who know me, but not many… (many, dear, believe me! – Dream)
– A girlfriend means a lot for a player, she’s always there at tournaments to support, her every emotion is shown on TV… What does a girlfriend mean for you? What should she be like?
– Erm… Well… Huh… (lol-Dream) She should love me, understand…
– Go to the tournaments with you?
– Well, if she can, if she has time – yeah… But she should have her own life, do something – study for example…
– Will you help Nikita with tennis?
– He hasn’t decided yet what to do – hockey or tennis, but whatever he chooses – I will help with pleasure of course. Now he likes hockey more, there’s a team, little bandits (lol again, sweetie – Dream)
– Was it hard for your mother when you left for Spain?
– It was hard both for her and me. But she understands it’s a part of my life, of my job… She sees I’m happy – and she’s happy too. That’s the most important thing for parents when their kids are OK. Now I try to call her as often as possinle. It’s hard here in Australian because of the difference in time, but when I’m somewhere in Europe – I call home almost every day.
– When you have time, where do you rush?
– When I’m in Moscow – skating, playing hockey, when at tournaments – computers, Internet… Killing time.
– What about your relationship with other tennis players?
– I have good relations with Mitya Tursunov. We did carting twice (carting, computers – such kids! lol – Dream), first he won, the next day – me. Today will be the final round… Actually I have good relationship with all guys, maybe our interests with some of them don’t match, with Dima we have close interests.
– And the last question… What would you wish to yourself this year?
– Erm… Hard to wish something for myself… Play this year without injuries and make my fans pleased and happy (so sweeeet! – Dream)

Dream
01-20-2006, 08:46 AM
And now

DON JOSE

– How long have you been training Igor?
– About 8 years, 7 for sure.
– What does Igor lack? No offence, but sometimes his game seems boring, monotonous…
– No, I don’t think so. Igor has one of the strongest hits in world tennis, that’s quite a lot. He’s strong phychologically. Sometimes he makes tactical mistakes, but he’s making proggress.
– During his second round match we saw the same hit. Weren’t there any variants?
– It wasn’t monotonous. There’s a system, there’s success. He shouldn’t do what he hasn’t a tendence to, in what he’s not sure, playing at the net, for example. We’re developing his style.
– Do you plan his achievements?
– We don’t pay attention to ranking. We deal with every match, every set. We don’t say “Igor will be in top 15 in July” – no. When Igor’s in top for sure, maybe we’ll change sth.
– Who’s Igor for you? For some coaches players are like children.
– We have friendly relationship. We’re a tutor and a pupil. But friends. That’s quite a problem, cuz the border dissapeares, respect may be lost.
I think Igor should have sth negative in his character, he’s too good, ideal. (lol - Dream)

omg,i read it in info class and i was smiling and teacher told me"u're too happy,u deserve a hit to recover"!such a joker!
omg,igor is so sweet!and don jose is right,igor is ideal;)*dreaming*!

thanks for that, it was cool!!

{Annie}
01-20-2006, 10:00 AM
:yeah: excellent stuff Lenochka, thanks :worship:

I saw one, too after his match with Almagro and they asked him about his physical state.

He said he was feeling fine, post-surgery recovering went well and he is well and fit right now :yeah: :bounce:

They also asked him about his draw and he said it didn't scare him or anything. It's a normal draw and he takes each day as it comes without looking forward. Each match at a time because when you start thinking forward you cannot 200% concentrate on the current game.

Despite the above, they asked him what would happen if him and Kolya will have to meet. Igor said it would be just another tennis match. It will be hard because they are friends but it's their job and they have a chance of meeting every time they enter the same tournament, so this is nothing major, it will be a pity that one of them will have to step down, but it's a game and you can't do anything about it. They asked Igor what he thought about Kolya's performance last year and he was very sweet and praised Kolya a lot. He said when they play doubles, he actually learns things from Kolya and vice versa

:yeah:

I don't know if it was choking. I saw the last part of the match and Igor was sooooo tired and very hot. He was even sitting down during the points. I just felt bad for him. He just looked like he needed to get off the court badly. Hopefully he's ok and gets some fluids. I just wish Igor could have held on and closed it out before he broke down.

Don't worry, just some lil problems with his abs... Maybe he stretched the muscle.

Abt the match - damn!!! :( Yesterday he was so concenrtated, ready to fight... And he was so close again! But he wasn't even moving in the end... Though I don't blame him - such a heat... I would start melting in 5 mins just staying there, not playing like poor guys.

Wanna hear what Igor'll say today. BTW, Annie, thanks for the info :) I always try to see all that if possible :)

Miru, sure! Tell me :) And btw, some exchange :) They're showing some programme abt Jenya today (one of the programmes abt our guys from the Olympic team) :) I'll try to record it and tell you what it's abt.

P.S. Did you see that holes in Hrbaty's shirt, in the back? :D I couldn't help laughing! Our commentator said it looked like he had taken it from a girl! :) And the colours were nice - black and... pink! :angel:

What match of Kirilenko did he came to watch? And is there an link of that interview where he was asked? I think they can make a good couple but that's only a wishful thinking ;) . Maria seems simple to me... ;)

He watched her first round match. It wasn't an interview actually, I was just watching the match with him, and we walked around all the courts. I just gave him a pat, saying I was curious about that Maria's questions. He told me his feelings that time, I said "come on, be serious" lol. Then he said no, really, just she's playing for russia.

I think Maria is pretty, just feel like she isn't very friendly. As I saw her playing the match quite seriously, even during the practice or doubles whatever. But I told Igor that she's pretty good, let me know if he has some feelings towards her. :angel: ;)

Hello r_alynutza_86, nice to meet you. Don't overthink it. I am just a fan of Igor's. I like his playing style so much. I've just been supporting him for a long time and he and Jose treats me as a friend. Igor gave me a competitor pass this year, allowing me to be with him in player's lounge and watch his matches in player's box. I had a lot of fun. I planned to go to Moscow last year, but the russian visa was so hard to get. Igor knew that and was like "oh yes that's true" because of the safety rules.

Hello r_alynutza_86, nice to meet you. Don't overthink it. I am just a fan of Igor's. I like his playing style so much. I've just been supporting him for a long time and he and Jose treats me as a friend. Igor gave me a competitor pass this year, allowing me to be with him in player's lounge and watch his matches in player's box. I had a lot of fun. I planned to go to Moscow last year, but the russian visa was so hard to get. Igor knew that and was like "oh yes that's true" because of the safety rules.

Nice meeting you Alina. You from Romania right. This is William! Eduard is Nikolay's brother. He is a very funny man, like when Niko is playing bad points, he would just laugh out and say to Niko that "how could you have a shot like that" something like that :wavey:

And "normal" words are much more boring :)

As for PM, Annie, thanks anyway :)

:lol:will,it means bye!kak dela is "how are u";)!
i wish i had the neard to go and talk to igor!he usually stays alone with don jose at the romanian open...maybe he is closer to u because u're a guy and ui can communicate better:angel:!
so igor likes maria...apreciates her,better siad!what abt lena,u're other fav?is igor still in melbourne?

William
01-24-2006, 01:35 PM
Hello Mara. :wavey: You're right, he doesn't spend much time with Jose. Everytime he walks around the courts, Jose was like having lunches or in the player's lounge. They always lost each other. I remember one day the time for Igor to practise, Jose came over and said "Have you seen Igor? It's time for his practice" I couldn't help laughing.
Igor has left already, back to Valencia and will join an indoor tournament next week. Jose left the day before him.

Mara_M
01-24-2006, 01:40 PM
will,my name is miruna,but u can call me whatever do u like!
strange,igor will play zagreb next week,why to go to valencia!

well,in rom open he usually stays with don jose,and if theya re not togheter theya re eighte searching one for each other eighter don jose is smoking and igor is in the locker room!maybe there he has who to spent the time with,cuz in romania he didn't have any other russian this year,and in teh previous years kolya had lost or got injury pretty early(even igor had pull him out in first roun in 2003;) )

William
01-24-2006, 01:54 PM
Miruna, nice to meet you!! He went back to Valencia to practise with Jose, cos you know, still one more week to go. Plus, Jose said Igor has still rooms to improve on his physical state(although you see Igor's very strong)
:(

Mara_M
01-24-2006, 02:04 PM
yeah,i can see he is very strong!
those abdominal pink thing are for an injury or for improoving?i know they ahve tehnical skills!
i wouldn't mind if they would stoped to buchares,is closer to zagreb than valencia:angel:!

William
01-24-2006, 02:19 PM
HAHA, of course you wish. But Jose was back in Valencia the day before he left already. Those pink stuff wasn't for improvement, sadly. They just help to tighten the muscles. Look terrible, huh.

Mara_M
01-24-2006, 02:34 PM
:lol:they weren't only pink,they were green too!i ahte green:o!but i guess he wanted to match hrbaty in a way or another:lol:!
so igor was a day alone in melbourne:aplot:?

William
01-24-2006, 02:41 PM
No he wasn't alone at all. He has another russian guy to be with. I can't remember his name. Plus he had a mixed double match to play, so he spent the day practising. But you know, they lost in the match, so Igor left that day.

Mara_M
01-24-2006, 02:42 PM
another russian guy?dima?dimitry tursunov ,i mean!?he said he usually plays videogames with him:p!friends;)!

I really don't know who he is. Maybe you are right, who is dima? sounds familiar. :confused:

i said that before,dima or mitya is dimitry tursunov!a blond curly guy!

William
01-24-2006, 03:19 PM
Oh I do know him, just don't know his shorter name is Dima. Igor told Dimitry that I am his fan during their doubles in Sydney. From that on, he remembered me and you know...I had to support him somehow. :rolleyes:

Mara_M
01-24-2006, 03:33 PM
support:lol:?
he is a nice guy,or he didn't seemed so to u?
they played doubles in sydney?i was so busy with my exams taht i focused onlty on singles:lol:!

William
01-24-2006, 03:56 PM
He is very Good, that's true. And his english is excellent too.
Yes they played doubles in Sydney, Jose said Nikolay wanted to focus on singles more, so they won't be paired for doubles in smaller tournaments.

Dream
01-24-2006, 04:31 PM
Dima's cuuuuutie! :) Though I didn't like him at first sight...
But I met him this year at KC and SPb Open and he charmed me! I really enjoyed talking to him and... looking at him ;) And I'm even an admin of his site now, though I would have laughed if I had heared about it a year ago.
And his English's good cuz he's lived in USA for half of his life.

It's always good to talk about Dima even in here. ;) Dima is practically an all Ameican boy. I just wish he played for the U.S. but I still love him. I know he's applying for citizenship tho I'm not sure if he has it yet. But if he's married to an American then he has it already. I'm just confused! :confused:

well...don't know what 2 say. I was looking at pic of Igor and me last night and i tried to imagine Igor as beeing romanian, but i don't think u can categorize his looks - at least i couldn't -. and, in the end, he is the russian living in Spain type ;)

:mad: He's RUSSIAN! Though he says he doesn't care much about his citizenship :( I don't appreciate this. And that was one of the reasons why I didn't like him at first.

Some people say his marriage was just the way to get US citizenship :rolleyes: Dunno... But sounds quite possible - I wonder when he saw his wife for the last time... OK, I'm shutting up, cuz I promised not to discuss such subjects. That's his private life after all.

But again - he's RUSSIAN! :rolleyes: I wish you could hear him using "bad language"... :p LOL

He's always friendly with his fans, likes to speak Russian with them and with journalists, reads russian books (He says "I had to read some shit like Shakespear etc, now I wanna read sth normal" LOL) etc

I wish he lived here, but now it's too late to change sth. He left for US long ago, cuz it was easier to play tennis there, he had more opportunities for it. Now too many things in his life are connected with US...

P.S. Agree that it would be better to talk about Dima in his thread :rolleyes:
