Could someone please translate this for me? :help:

BUNTE-Autor Paul Sahner im Gespräch mit Tommy Haas

Tommy Haas zu Beginn des BUNTE-Interviews: "Angelina ist die attraktivste Frau, die ich je gesehen habe, und viele Frauen halten Brad für den attraktivsten Mann. Ganz klar, die beiden sind das heißeste Paar der Welt."

Tommy, viele Frauen finden auch Sie attraktiv.
Brad Pitt ist 1a. Aber ich hoffe, dass ich für ein paar Frauen attraktiver bin als er.

Besonders reizvoll fand Giulia Siegel Sie: Die turbulente Affäre mit ihr bescherte reichlich Schlagzeilen. Noch Kontakt mit dem schönen Fotomodell?
Nein.

Dafür sieht man Sie in letzter Zeit wieder oft mit Ihrer Ex-Freundin Sandy Meyer-Wölden, zuletzt sehr harmonisch bei den Australian Open in Sydney.
Sandy und ich kennen uns schon verdammt lange.

Verdammt lange?
Seit Sommer 1999, im Juni sind es sieben Jahre.

Und jetzt das Liebescomeback?
Wir hatten die letzten zwei, drei Jahre, in denen wir getrennt waren, nie den Kontakt abgebrochen, uns immer wieder mal gesehen, telefoniert oder gemailt.

Alte Liebe rostet nicht?
Ja, vielleicht. Aber wir überstürzen nichts, gehen sehr behutsam mit der Situation um und gucken, was die Zeit bringt. Wir lernen uns jetzt besser kennen, reden viel mehr und verbringen möglichst viel Zeit miteinander.

Wenn man sich die harmonische Ehe von Andre Agassi und Steffi Graf ansieht, muss das doch ansteckend auf Sie wirken.
Andre sehe ich als Freund, der mich oft genug nach Las Vegas einlädt. Als ich jetzt in Delray Beach das Turnier gewann, besuchte uns Steffi mit den Kindern im Players Room. Jaden und Jazz sind unheimlich süß, spielten mit einem kleinen Fußball und Tischtennisschlägern. Witzig ist, dass Steffi mit den Kindern Deutsch spricht, die aber auf Englisch antworten, damit auch ihr Vater sie versteht. Tolles Familienglück.

Da möchte man selbst gern Vater werden.
Ja sicherlich, wenn alles passt, denkt man automatisch über Kinder nach.

Sie haben ein neues Tennis-Outfit.
Meine eigene Kollektion, die demnächst von Limited Sports vertrieben wird. Früher spielte ich fast immer nackt unter den Tennisshorts, weil man da unten extrem schwitzt und der Slip immer schwerer wird. Jetzt habe ich eine Unterhose entwickelt, die so leicht und elastisch ist, dass man sie gar nicht spürt.

Der Pferdeschwanz, ihr langjähriges Markenzeichen, musste ebenfalls dran glauben.
Ich war froh, dass ich diese Länge endlich erreicht hatte, sehr pflegeleicht, so ein Pferdeschwanz! Einfach zusammenbinden – und zack bist du perfekt. Doch der Blick in den Spiegel signalisierte mir, dass es höchste Zeit wurde für einen neuen Tommy Haas. Der alte hatte ohnehin Ende letzten Jahres ein paar Problemchen. Zopf ab, sagte ich mir, meine beiden Schwestern bestätigten meinen Entschluss. Jetzt ist das Klasse. Duschen, mit dem Handtuch rubbeln, ein biss-chen Gel rein, schon stimmt der Look.

ok, I'll try. I read this Interview when it was published and it is really funny ;)

BUNTE-Author Paul Sahner speaks with Tommy Haas.

Tommy Haas at the beginning of the interview: "Angelina is the most attractive woman I have ever seen and many women think Brad is the most attractive man, so they surely are the hottest couple in the world."

Tommy, many women think you are attractive
Brad Pitt is 1a. But I hope for some women I'm more attractive than him.

Giulia Siegel seemed to find you very attractive. Your affair caused a lot of media attention. Do you still have contact with the beautiful model?
No

Therefore your ex-girlfriend Sandy Meyer-Wölden seems to spend a lot of time with you as we saw very harmonical at the AO in Sydney.
Sandy and I know each other for many years.

Many years?
Since Summer 1999, in June it will be 7 yeras.

And now there is a love-comeback?
In the last 2,3 years when we were seperated we never lost contact. We used to see each other, phone or mail.

Old love never dies?
Yes, maybe. But we aren't (rushing?) it, we take care of the situation and see what time will bring. We get to know each other better, talk a lot and try to spend most time as possible together.

If you see the harmonical marriage of Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, that must be contagious to you.
I see Andre as a friend, who invites me to Las Vegas often. When I won the Delray Beach tournament, Steffi visited us with the kids in the players room. Jaden and Jazz are unbelievabely cute, they were playing with a small football und table tennis raquets. Its funny, that Steffi talks to them in German and they answer in english, so that their father can understand them as well. Great family luck.

Then you wanna become a father too.
Yes, sure. If everything fits you automatically think about kids.

You have a new tennis-outfit.
My own collection, which will soon be distributed by Limited Sports. I used to play naked under my tennisshorts, cause I used to sweat a lot and the slip became heavier and heavier :lol: Now I developed a special underwear, that is so light and elastical, that you hardly feel it.

The ponytail, your brandmark over the last years is gone too.

I was happy, that I reached this length, cause its very easy to take care of. Simply do a ponytail and you're ready to go. But the look into the mirros signalized me that its time for a new Tommy Haas. The old Tommy had some problems at the end of last year. My sisters confirmed my decision and I cut it off. Now its awesome. Showering, draying it with a towel, putting some hair-wax into it and the look is ready.

I think Feli's body is hot, but I don't like his face... Yes, the underwear should be all he shows, although I once saw a picture from the session with sandy on the beach that showed a little bit more. But I don't remember where I found it... :mad:

Really for a guy that doesn't even like to change his shirt when he is playing tennis because of the reaction I'm surprised that Tommy even did the underwear pictures. I
guess maybe since there wasn't a crowd of people to react
to the pictures it didn't bother him :unsure:

Yes all year long I take pills. And I take two shots each week during the whole year. In fact today I'm going to have to go and get my shots.

They aren't bad. I just came back a little while ago from getting my two shots. And found out that Andy lost his Match--I know better than to bet on him yet sometimes I still do! And he has cost me more vCash than he has won for me :bigcry: So that is vCash down the drain :crying2:
I don't know why I still bet on him when I know better :shrug:

Yes I'm afraid whether you like Federer or not when he is playing it is a good idea to bet on him. Of course, with the odds you have to bet a lot of money to make much off one of his Matches. But a least your stake is normally quite safe. He cost me money that time against Nadal. I actually felt that Nadal was going to win that Match, but because the Match was being played on a hard court I went ahead and again went with Federer--bad idea that time :bigcry:

Oh I don't bet against Tommy either. When Federer is playing Tommy I just don't bet. It's sad, but when Federer is on the court against most any one I think he is going to win, but since I like Tommy so much I can't bet against him so all I can do is just not bet. And then I can think of how nice it would be if Tommy did beat Federer ;) :angel:

Nevertheless I would bet on Tommy against Federer :cool: The quotes for a Federer win are so low it does not make sense to bet at all

That's what I thought at first. I didn't bet on Federer at all because a bet is a gamble and Federer is normally such a sure winner the "risk" just isn't there usually. But I got off to such a poor vBetting start which I tried to help by using my blog. And that did help some, but finally I thought well if I can earn some vCash by betting on Federer some, why not? So that is what I have done made a little vCash by doing some betting on Federer.

When i have about 300 of vCash i always bet all money (except like 10 dollars) on Federer.. this way i reached the 600 dollars...!
now i want to get 1000+ :yeah:

Go for it Tommy Girl ;) It does take a big stake down on Federer to win much vCash, but when Federer keeps winning you get that stake back plus you do win at least some vCash. So it is a win-win deal as far as I'm concerned :cool: However, I must say (and I never thought I would say this) I have become somewhat concerned about
Federer :eek: I have been able to watch some of his Matches recently on ESPN2. And I must tell you there are times he looks like someone like me out there playing :ras:
He will swing at the tennis ball and just completely miss hitting it--now that is what I always did when I tried to play tennis--but this is Roger Federer :rolleyes: And, of course, when that happens the TV people show it in slow motion and it actually makes Federer look awful :p
But so far other than Nadal that one Tournament no one has been able to get a win off of Federer even if he has looked bad recently :shrug:

04-03-2006, 08:39 PM
exactly.. so i will just bet on him in the early rounds!! he will def. everyone for 99% sure i think!!
so it is espn2 which shows tennis..!! the tv companies in holland don't have the possibility to sell it to us i think.. (u know what i mean??) i think i can only get it when i have a sattelite-tv... :sad:

Yes ESPN2 does show tennis, but not as much as I would like for it to. And tennis seems to be almost an after thought. If a basketball game is on and it runs over into the time that tennis was supposed to start, you just miss that tennis :mad: They won't cut away from another sport to go to tennis even if it is time for tennis to start :ras:

I'm happy that there are some local programs, that will show Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Munich. Otherwise we also get to see only WTA on Eurosport. In the past DSF showed every Masters tournament...but thats over now

Has any one ever contacted Eurosport to find out why they only show the WTA?

yes; I have emailed them to ask why they only show WTA and no more Masters or ATP Tennis. They told me the masters series was extremly expensive or something like that and that they had some trouble managing the rights. Its a long time ago and I don't now it exactly. I wrote them a very accusing and pissed off letter, thats all I still know :lol:

That's what I kind of thought when I asked that question that it was a matter of money. Like I have been trying to get DirecTV to carry The Tennis Channel and they won't do it :mad: :sad: I think the problem there is also the money involved :(

<Eve>
04-06-2006, 07:32 PM
i really never thought of that!! :eek: :o :scratch:
i think it's a good possibility they don't show the atp-tour because of all the hot men!! it's more expensive!! :yeah:

:haha: :haha: :haha: I hadn't thought it was the hot men that was making the ATP Tour more expensive. :lol: Tommy Girl only you could have thought of that ;) I did think the Tour could cost TV more, but instead of "hot men" I was thinking along the lines of the fact that the men play longer Matches than the women. But I like your idea better Tommy Girl :p

Let me kind of add an off topic item here. I post in the Non-Tennis section you know the chat threads. And I have seen posts from others out of this Forum in chat threads.
Well every once in a while I would be posting in that section and I would look at my vCash total. And I would think it isn't going up, but then I would think I had just lost track of how much vCash I actually had. Well I found out today that when you post in the Non-Tennis section you don't get any vCash for those Posts :eek: I have been a member here since September of last year and I am just now finding that out :rolleyes: I didn't know if the rest of you knew or not, but I thought I would post it to make sure.
