Default Re: Florian Mayer Cheering Thread

extract from Netzeitung Interview with Kühnen when he was talking about Mayer:
Quote:
Netzeitung: Überrascht Sie nicht, mit welcher Nervenstärke und Abgebrühtheit Mayer inzwischen ans Werk geht, der erste deutsche Weltklassemann aus der Generation nach Schüttler, Kiefer und Haas?

Kühnen: Ich erinnere mich noch, wie er in Melbourne gegen Nalbandian das Nervenflattern bekam und von der neuen Situation überwältigt war. Und jetzt muss man sich mal anschauen, wie der mit seinen 20 Jahren hier Andre Agassi attackiert, im größten Stadion der Welt. Es ist beeindruckend, wie souverän er mit dem Druck umgeht, welche Sicherheit er ausstrahlt. Er hat keine Angst vor niemandem. Und wie Boris Becker schon in Wimbledon gesagt hat: Er hat keine Angst zu gewinnen.
Kühnen was asked if he isn't surprised how cool and unimpressed Mayer already plays his matches, especially the one against Agassi in what he was looking quite well until he had to retire.
Kühnen said that he remembers the match against Nalbandian in AO 2004 when he was too excited about this situation and now he was playing really well against Agassi and attacked him in front of the biggest tennis crowd of the world. He handles the pressure very well. He isn't afraid of anybody. And like Boris Becker already said at Wimbledon, he isn't afraid to win.
