Default Re: David Goffin Cheering Thread

here's an interview with david:

Il sera l’un des premiers joueurs à lancer l’année 2013 du tennis. Et pour cause. David Goffin (ATP 46) a choisi le tournoi ATP 250 de Brisbane, sur la côte Est de l’Australie, qui commence dimanche, pour démarrer sa saison. Révélation de l’année écoulée au même titre que le Slovaque Martin Klizan (ATP 30), le Liégeois, 22 ans, sait qu’il devra confirmer, mais il est prêt à relever le défi.

David, pourquoi avoir choisi Brisbane comme premier tournoi ?

J’ai opté pour Brisbane, car j’entre directement dans le tableau, et comme cela, je serai déjà en Australie. Je pourrai plus facilement m’habituer à la surface et je ne devrai plus digérer un décalage horaire avant l’Australian Open, qui est mon principal objectif.

C’est la première fois que vous disputerez l’Australian Open…

Oui. Je suis déjà allé deux fois en Australie, mais j’avais chaque fois échoué en qualifications. En plus, il ne faisait ni beau, ni chaud. Je n’ai pas eu de chance (sourire) Je suis parti avec mon frère, Simon. On se prenait pour Sampras et Agassi quand on était des gamins. Je suis content de l’avoir à mes côtés pour entamer l’année. Réginald (NdlR : Willems, son coach) nous rejoindra à Auckland en vue de l’Australian Open.

Comment vous êtes-vous préparé ?

Après être allé décompresser à Tenerife, j’ai commencé par environ trois semaines de physique pur, où j’ai fait de tout, même du ski de fond. Ensuite, j’ai sorti ma raquette et je suis passé au tennis.

Quels aspects avez-vous principalement travaillés ?

J’ai cherché à me renforcer musculairement, sachant que je ne serai jamais un body-builder (sourire) J’ai souvent lu dans les journaux que j’avais les bras tout fins, mais ma balle part vite, c’est ce qui compte. Et ce ne serait pas le cas si j’avais les biceps de Nadal. J’ai aussi travaillé mon service, pour gagner en pourcentage et en vitesse. J’aimerais dépasser les 200 km/h. Et je souhaite que mon coup droit devienne encore plus agressif. Un jeu vers l’avant performant permet d’économiser de l’énergie face à des joueurs toujours plus solides du fond.

Quels sont vos objectifs pour l’année 2013 ?

J’aimerais en premier lieu me stabiliser dans le Top 50, mais je ne veux pas me fixer d’objectif en termes de classement. C’est le meilleur moyen de se mettre une pression inutile. Ce que j’espère, c’est d’aller le plus loin possible dans les Grands Chelems pour revivre des moments comme à Roland-Garros. Mais à choisir, j’opterais pour un huitième de finale à Wimbledon (sourire)

Vous serez attendu au tournant. Cela vous fait-il peur ?

Confirmer fait partie du métier. J’aurais signé des deux mains pour vivre une année pareille. J’ai reçu beaucoup de félicitations. Cela fait plaisir, cela signifie que je suis sur la bonne voie. Je me sens prêt pour ces nouveaux défis. J’ai connu de grandes expériences ces derniers mois, je veux en revivre d’autres

I can translate if you need

i'm not going to do word for word, i'll give you the basic points:

Q1: asks him why he's playing in brisbane. He says that he wanted to get used to the conditions before the australian open

Q2: he just talks about how this is the first time he'll play the australian.mentions he's been there as a spectator before and that hos coach will join him in aukland

Q3 and Q4: talks about things he's done to prepare during the off season, going into more detail in question 4. He's tried to build muscle. also worked on his serve and his forehand

Q5: talks about his goals for the season.wants to solidify his place in the top 50 but there's nothing specific other than that. doesnt want to put alot of pressure on himself. wants to do well at the grand slams. Not sure on the last part but i think he says he'd like to make the quarterfinal at wimbledon

Q6: reporter just mentions how there will be more pressure and more eyes on him this season. David is aware of that . he's ready for it. he had a great year last season and he wants to have another one like it

Well he lost to Melzer in straights. It really seemed winnable on paper and the stats were pretty close.

Kinda sad but its just the start of the year.

Lost to Bellucci 6-7 2-6 first round in Auckland. Didn't watch the match.

What do you guys think he needs to work on to help him stay consistent on tour level? He has to add equipment in his arsenal to back up his amazing talent. I really wouldn't like to see our man to become a journeyman player and I certainly don't want another crash out at the first round of AO. Hope Goff knows his fans care.

AO draw is out!

Goffin got Verdasco in the first round. I hope he plays his heart out and leaves it all there whatever the result may be. Good luck, Goff!

Lost in five. Was two sets and a break up.

Like the rest of you who've stopped posting here, I think I too will step out for a bit and wait till he knows he's got to take his game seriously. He's twenty two now, no more goofing around. Three early losses in the beginning of the year. Losing matches he should be winning. Enough whining from me.

I'm out of here till he begins to perform.
