Thank you kataana - the baby is mine.... and that moment was just too cute... right Corina??????? ;)

I agree - Men with babies are adorable... and I also have to confess that my knees turned to jelly 4 separate times during Stuttgart and Kitzbuhel.

Mariano is also fantastic with children...

There is an even cuter picture - taken 30 seconds before that one on Page 2 of Kitzbuhel Memories...

It was like this... We were sitting at Prieto/Arnold match and Mariano came and sat just below Kasia. Kasia was 'muttering' a song - "La Tortura" or something like this. Then Mariano, who was just after his practise (wet and stuff), took out his shoe and started to scratch his foot and started to sing (quite loudly!) a song. I thought I'd fall out of my seat. That guy is brilliant.

Greetings everyone :D

hey guys. i've noriced, mariano's got tatoos. does anyone know what they meen or any close ups?

katica
10-02-2005, 09:20 AM
he has a green clover on his left shoulder , a poppy on his right arm and something on his left wrist that i didn't figure out in the week when he was at open romania what it is...and in pictures the tatoo is too little to see what it is...

basil333
10-02-2005, 10:42 AM
The cloverleaf was first - about 2 years ago now, I first noticed the black sign similar to sun of may sign but it isnt - in Madrid, the "poppy" first saw in Indian Wells 2005 - the cloverleaf is definitely a cloverleaf, but the other two are not exactly what they look like. Yes... I have seen them very close up :)

But I didn't exactly want to say during our conversations, btw what's that?

There are pictures somewhere...

I think its great they are completely different from anyone else... - just hope he doesnt go too crazy...

http://marianosboard.proboards29.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=1126819876&page=2

This link is to a page on my message board... it contains 2 pictures containing close-ups....

He told me he got the four leaf clover because of his favourite band U2.

i didn't ask him about the tattoo ..but i thought that the reason he tattooed a four leaf clover is U2 :cool:

He told me he got the four leaf clover because of his favourite band U2.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is the relation between U2 and the four leaf clover?

katica
10-16-2005, 11:59 AM
U2 is an irish band and the four leaf clover is the symbol of Ireland :)

Corina2605
10-16-2005, 12:27 PM
Of course. Thanks for the info, sometimes I am really stupid :)

I remember Mariano walking around in a green Ireland jacket one night in Kitzbuhel. And of course it is obvious that his favourite colour is green - he really is a huge Ireland fan :)

MARIANO ZABALETA
INTIMIDADES DE UN TIPO NORMAL


A pesar de los altibajos en su carrera -muchos de ellos obligados- es uno de los jugadores mas carismaticos y queirdos del tenis argentino. En una entrevista especial e inedita, le presentamos a Mariano Zabaleta como nunca antes se lo vio.


No bien uno entra al departamendo de Mariano Zabaleta, puese pensar , con tranquilidad, que ahi vive un artista o un roquero, un simplemente un chico normal. Cualquier cosa, menos un tenista. Solo despues de algunos pasos se llegara a ver algunas cuerdas y los primeros indicios de verdadea actividad de nuestro entrevistado. Un pas de guitarras -tres, para ser preciso-, cuadros de artistas como Manu Chao, U2 Y Bob Marley delatan el fanatismo de mariano por la musica. "Empece a tocar la guitarra hace un año, mas o menos, con Gaston (Gaudio) y un profesor", nos cueta, casi con verguenza. Primero, es el turno de la charla, despues de las fotos. Lo vamos a paseando por todo el departamento, y se lo ve tan relajadao y a gusto, que parece un tipo acostumbrado a los flashes y a la produccion si le gustan estas cosas, asegura "En realidad, no. Me llaman seguido de varias revistas para hacer notas, pero siempre les digo que no", lo que a pesar de ser una revista especializada, nos hace sentir como verdaderos privilegiados.
No siempre uno tiene la posibilidad de acceder a la intimidad de una figura de nuestro tenis. Pero el temor logico se sobrepasar la confianza en un terrenodesconocido rapidamente se ve aplacado por una agradable sensacion de bienestar. Es que Mariano nos hace sentir como si esta fuese nuestra casa. "Agarren lo que quieran, usen lo que necesiten, todo bien. ¿Quieren algo para tomar? ¿Queres que hagamos unas fotos adentro de la pileta?". Con Sergio, el fotorgrafo, nos vemos gratamente sorprendidos por la buena prediposicion. Es Mariano, Zabala, el Negro, como prefieran, un tipo sencillo, humilde y con la mejor de las ondas. En resumen, un tipo normal.



¿Como fue este 2007 para vos?

La verdad es que feu bastante positivo. Estoy contento por como termene el año. Si lo mido por el ranking, empece cerca del puesto Nº 400por todas las lesiones q tuve, me costo un poco arrancar y ya los cuatro meses estaba alrededor del puesto Nº 80 gracias a un par de buenos resultados. Segui bein hasta el US Open, donde me di cuenta de que estaba un poco cansado y decidi para un par de meses. Pero igual estoy contento: me agarraron muchas ganas de volver a entrenar y ante la posibilidad de entrar directamente al Abierto de Australia, mas aun.


¿Con que prespectivas y objetivos encaras el 2008?

Estoy con muchas ganas, entrenando fuerte. Ya a esta edad, para sali a jugar tengo que tener muchas ganas y las cosas claras, obejtivos a corto plazo. La didea es disfrutar: ir a los torneos que quiera y no jugar por jugar.


Hablabas de la edad. Estas cerca de cumplir 30 años -el 28 de febrero-. ¿Como vez esta ultima etapa de tu carrera?.
Despues del US Open, no tenis mas ganas de jugar- Y me dije "Bueno, sera que no tengo que jugar mas", no sabia como iba a reaccionar- Pero ahora me agarraron unas ganas barbaras y estoy entrenando como si tuviera 18 años- Se que me quedan dos o tres años de carrera y la idea es disfrutar y pasarla bien. y si no tengo mas ganas, no seguir jugando. Porque ya tengo 13 años como profesional, viajando por obligacion y ya no quiero mas eso.


La consigna, entonces, es esa: disfrutar estos dos o tres años...

(Interrumpe.)No se, Ojala sean dos o tres años. Quizas sean dos meses. Estoy fisica y mentalmente para jugar ese tiempo, pero uno nunca sabe....


Durante toda tu carrera tuviste muchas lesiones que, icluso, cortaron grandes momentos que estabas pasando. ¿Cual de ellas fue la que mas te marco?.

La peor fue la que tuve en el pie. Fue hace un par de años, en los octavos de final de Monte Carlo. Estaba en el puesto Nº 25 del mundo y jugando un tenis increible. La verdad es que no me lo esperaba. Venia entrenando bien pero yo tengo un problema en el pie, que tengo mucho arco y nada... Se me rompio un musucol. Y creo que eso fue lo que me dejo afuera estos ultimo dos años junto con otras lesiones que le siguieron.


¿Afecta en lo psicologico tener tantas lesiones y tan seguido?.

Y, si... Te mata. Te corta todo un año. Te cambia los objetivos que tenias. A mi me cuesta mucho el tema de las lesiones y tener que ir al kinesiologo todos los dias, la recuperacion... todo eso se me hace muy denso. Pero bueno me toco convivir con eso en mi carrera, y estoy feliz de la carrera que tuve.
Todos los jugadores se lesionan. Las veces que me toco a mi le puse huevo, me recupere y nada... Diso quiera quq no tenga que retirarme por una lesion, sino cuando yo elija retirarme.


Sin Importar tu ranking, simepre fuiste uno de los tipos mas queridos por el publico argnetino y por los jugadores tambien. ¿Por que crees que se da eso?

Yo creo que la gente, por mas que solo te vea jugar, sabe si sos buena persona o no.
Yo me considero un buen tipo, siempre lo fui, bastante derecho y creo que la gente se da cuenta de eso a traves de los años. Y con los jugadores es lo mismo. La verdad es que soy asi: soy unpibe que no me hago muchos problemas ni me peleo con nadie. Para mi la vida es muy simple, es blanco o negro y aunque tengo mi grupo de amigos, trato de llevarme bien con todos.



¿Que es lo que mas disfrutas del tenis del deporte?

Hoy, me cuesta encontrar algo que disfrutar de manera increible. La sensacion de ganar y competi, de romperte el lomo entrenando, ir a un torneo y poder ganarlo, para mi, esa es una sencacion unica. Para todos, creo. Eso es lo que hoy mas disfruto del tenis. Poruqe despues esta todo el tema de los viajes.


¿Puede que sea eso lo que menos disfrutas?

Si es lo que mas me cansa. La gente escucha que uno dice que esta agotado de viajar y piensa "Uh, este bol... encima que viaja se queja" No es asi. Es como todo, como caulquier laburo:
despues de muchso años llega un punto en que te satura. Y no es que viajamos por vacaiones. Lo hacemos todas las semanas, durante años. Me pone fastidioso estar en un aeropuerto. Creo que si me fuese a Brasil, de vacaciones, lo haria feliz.
Eso es lo unico que me cansa. Jugar aca en el pais seria genial (sonrie)


Desde chicho se pusieron sobre vos muchas espectativas. Recientemente, hicimos una nota con franco squillari, que saldra en el proximo numero de GRIP, en la cual le comentaba que el era el precursor de toda esta camada actual, lo mismo que vos, y que todas las miradas en ese momento se centraban sobre ustedes. ¿Puede ser que eso te haya prejudicado en cierto punto?

No, no creo q eso me alla prejudicado. Hay veces que se tiene siertas espectavidas sobre un jugador que luego no se cumplen... Pero yo estoy orgulloso y feliz de mi carrera. Eso es lo que siento ahora, no me puedo acordar de lo que sentia a los 20 años... Lo que siempre digo es que hubiese estado bueno salir hoy, con 18 años, como lo hicieron Monaco o Del Potro, con seis o siete jugadores que ya fueron top-ten y ganaron torneos importantes. De cierta manera, ellos ya conocen los pasos.
Yo me acuerdo de que fui el primero de mi camada en jugar la gira indoor. Habia varios que me decian: "¿Para que vas a jugar eso?" Y lo hice, obedeciendo a mi entrenador y no me fue mal. Hoy en dia es imposible estar arriba sin jugar en canchas rapidas, e incluso, los argentinos juegan mas ahi que sobre polvo de ladrillo.
Aveces pienso que, con Franco, tuvimos que experimentar muchas cosas. Y eso, en ciertas ocasiones, hizo que el calendario elegido no sea el correcto o que comentamos algun que otro error. Pero no me arrepiento de nada y estoy muy tranquilo.


¿Que opinas del tenis argentino actual?

Creo que el tenis argentino hace 5 años esta viviendo un momento espectacular. Hoy en dia, escucho gente que dice que es un desastre y te da lastima escuchar esas cosas. O no entienden por que no hay un Nº 1 argentino. No es tan facil. Este deporte e smuy duro, fisica y mentalmente, y muy profesional. Creo que el que encabeza todo esto es Nalbandian. Por los torneos que tiene, los jugadores a los que les gana y como les gana... Y despues estamos un poco atras de David, tenisticamente hablando. Pero somo siete, ocho jugadores que podemos ganar en cualquier torneo en el año y a cualquier jugador.


Profundiza un poco sobre como es David.

David es un genio. Yo lo dije siempre. A mi me aburre mucho ver tenis por television, pero cuando Federer o David -o cuando lo hacia Agassi- miro todo el partido. Porque todo aquel que entienda tenis un poco mas de lo normal se da cuenta de que son capaces de hacer cosas que son fisicamente imposibles. Es por eso que lo disfruto mucho, y uno de los pocos jugadores por los que me pongo contento cuando gana. Lo conozco desde que eramos chicos, y tanto el como Coria ya jugaban un huevo. Coria era un poco mas estructurado y el derrochaba talento sin moverse. Es increible.


Y aque comentas, ¿Cual es tu vision sobre el caso Coria?.

Y, no se... La gente tiene que entender -aunque en realidad me da lo mismo si lo hace o no- que este es un deprote muy duro mentalmente. Se requiere un sacrificio muy grande para estar entre los mejores. Yo creo que lo de el fue un tema de saturacion mental. Es mi humilde opinion. Se canso de competir de la presion y la cabeza le pidio un parate indeterminado hasta arrancar de vuelta. O por ahi ya no vuelve.
Ya gano muchos partidos, torneos, plata, lo disfruto y listo. Yo hablo con el, lo veo entrenar y se que quiere volver. Y me parece perfecto. Pero lo importante es que no la pase mal en una cancha.


¿Que sentias cuando jugabas por la davis?

Antes de eta entrevista casualmente hablaba con Mariano Hood, mi entrenador, de eso. Me decia que yo habia tenido mala suerte en la Copa Davis. Y es verdad. Me hubiera gustado tener la posiblidad de jugar un par de partidos faciles como la tuvo Gaston, por ejemplo, para agarrar confianza. Si hubiera ganado auqel partido contra Massu, que lo tenia ganado (N. del R: debio suspender por incidentes), quizas hubiese sido distinto. Despues me toco contra Lapenti, Moya, todos muy complicados. L averdad es que me dejo un sabor amargo. Pero tambienme aucerdo de cuando le gane a Youzhy en Buenos Aires y la sensacion de haber integrado un equipo no me la olvido mas.


Vamos a un gran momento en tu carrera: la final de Hamburgo 1999 contra el Chino Rios.
¿Que recordas de ese partido?.

Ese fue un buen momento. Yo siempre digo que no soy un jugador regular, sino que tengo momentod en el año animicos y tenisticos. Por eso, mi carrera fue siempre de pegar picos en torneos asi. En ese momento venia jugando bien sobre polvo de ladrillo, era un torneo grande y estaba motivado. Yo soy un jugador que se mueve mucho a la base de motivaciones: si no estoy motivado no le puedo ganar a nadie. Y ese torneo fue muy bueno. Estuve match point en la final de un certamen importante, contra el Chino Rios -al que despues derrite varias veces- cerca de ganar... No me olvido mas. Pero el tenis es asi, se gana y se pierde. Estoy muy feliz de haber llegado a la final de un Masters.


¿Se puede decir que una de tus jugadas mas lindas de tu carrera fue con Federer?
(N.del.R: en Roma 2003, el suizo le jugo un globo y mariano respondio con un passing shot paralelo de espaldas)

SIII! (Exclama) Fue la mejor de mi carrera y la eligieron la mejor de la historia en un canal de television compitiendo con jugadas de Vilas, de Mc Enroe y otros. Fue increible, es la verdad (Sonrie). Son cosas que uno tira en el entrenamiento y algunas veces van adentro y muchas otras, a al tribuna. Que me haya salido ese dia contra Federer, en cancha central y por como venia el punto, fue increible. Me lo voy a acordar siempre.


¿Que opinas de federer como jugador?

Y... El es un tocado. Tecnicamente es perfecto, mentalmente es perfecto, ni se despeina jugando. Hay pocos en la historia del deporte que salen asi. Creo que hasta es mucho mejor que Sampras, por eso, supera todos los records. Y estoy feliz de haber compartido años de circuito con el. Yo creo que es un privilegio para toda esta camada de jugadores.
Contra el tuve buenos partidos, incluso, le gane cuando era mas chico. Siempre me motivaba jugar contra Federer.


¿Como fueron tus comienzos en taldil?
Fue algo espectacular. Tuve la suerte de tener a Guillermo Perez Roldan. que era profesional en esa epoca. Ellos me vieron, me entrenaron y asi logre meterme bastante rapidamente y de forma organizada. Yo la pase muy bien aquellos años. Jugaba con amigos.


¿Como se llevan los tandilences en el circuito? En el buen sentido de la frase, ¿son un grupo dentro de otro grupo?

No, no, para nada. Mi mejor amigo en el tenis es Gaston y siempre estoy con el, lo mismo que con Chela. Pero cuando nos juntamos afuera, la pasamos muy bien. Piquito es como un hermano para mi, desde muy chico. Siempre lo ayude y lo llevaba de un lado a otro conmigo. Y a Juan Martin no lo conozco tanto, porque es mas chico. Y muchas veces estamos juntos otras no, y esta nos juntamos como seis de tandil en, no se... Alemania, por ejemplo, y siempre hay alguno que nos putea porque nos la pasamos hablando de gente Tandil de la que no tiene ni idea, ¿entendes? Eso me divierte mucho. (Sonrie)



¿Con que extrajeros tenes buena onda, que la gente por ahi no sabe?

Bueno, con Tin Henman tenia muy buena onda. Un fenomeno como persona. Un tipo muy divertido, a pesar de lo amargo que parecia en la cancha.


¿Me dijieron que imitaba tu saque, puede ser.?

Si, todo el tiempo me imitaba (risas). Y una vez me enoje con el. En un partido durisimo que estabamos jugando empezo a imitarme como jadeaba. M re calente, lo llame a la red lo putee. Despues, en el vestuario, me pidio perdon y todo bien. Lo que pasa es que es dificl para nosotros juntarnos como un aleman. Es mas normal juntarnos con los españoles o los brasileros. Lo mismo que para ellos hacerlos con los suizos o los austriacos. No es de mala onda, es asi...


¿Extrañas Tenis Pro?

No, la verdad que no. Pero es bueno aclararlo. Durante dos años hicimos el programa y nos divertimos muchos, pero los ultimos 6 meses ya se parecia mas a un trabajo que a una diversion. Y nos empezo a costar cada vez mas filmar, mandar las cosas. Gracias al exito que tuvo, se hizo cada vez mas profesional. Y no quisimos empezar un terce añoasi, poruqe no iba. Se dio la casualidad de que los dos cambiamos de entrenador, nos fue bien y mucha gente, periodistas incluidos, dijieron cualquier cosa de por que habiamos dejado de hacerlo, no se...
Pero la verdad es que no nos sacaba nada de tiempo. Fue increible como la gente, en toda Amerida, se engancho con el progrma Frasheee mucho con eso.


Bueno, te iba a preguntar si habia una chance de que volviera, pero....

(Interrumpe) El otro dia hablabamos con Juan Ignacio y dijismo: "Bueno, un año antes de retirarnos tenemos que volver a hacerlo." Asi que, por ahi en 2009 hacemos un año de cierre. Sobre todo por la gente que lo siguio y que aun hoy te pregutna que paso con el programa.


La ultima. Hace unos meses hicimos una nota con Juan Monaco, y le pedimos que hiciera un TOP-FIVE de los jugadores de Play Station. Primero, te puso en la lista y despues te dejo afuera. ¿Que tenes para decirle?.

(Risas) Lo que pasa es que yo no juego mas. Antes era un enfermo. Nos llevabamos todo y jugabamos con Gaston, con Horna, por plata... Pico ni existia todavia. ¿Queres que te arme mi ranking?. Primero, Moya. Pero Moya se compra revistas del Winning Elven, lee como hacer jugadas, practica, todo, es obvio que es el Nº1, poruqe esta loco. Segundo, Ferrer; Tercero, Nalbandian; Cuarto, Pico; y quinto, lo pongo a Nadal.
Hace 3 años que ya no toco nada, ya se nos paso...

Then you can understand what I said?

I've only seen Mariano play live once so far, I'll have to make a point of attending more of his matches. And maybe talking to him one day? From what I've heard, he's a really nice and genuine guy.

VolandriFan He is... and he makes time for the fans who have watched his practice and matches too. If you want a goal for 2008 - make talking to him your goal - then you will have a nice objective to aim for :)

I saw the match on livefeed too... he had an instant injury timeout at around 4-4 15-30 in the Second set; the trainer came out with cream and massaged his thigh (the camera was VERY close!!) and lets just say.... I think the the Trainer "found" the exact spot... judging by the painful "OW!" reaction!! - but the trainer seemed to work magic - I also thought that he looked uncomfortable again at the end of the 4th set -

He played some really really incredible shots and rallies in the match - ok he was also rusty in a few other places. - the rallies where he saved 2 matchpoints were some of the best too...
