Exclusive interview for russian website sports.ru.

This is my first translation into english, so I'm sorry if anything is not right.

http://www.sports.ru/tennis/73763106.html

Headliner star of Kremlin cup decided to talk to sports.ru journalist, and he told us why he lost to serb Victor Troicki, predicted who will win YEC in London and said about his favourite nickname.

-How long did it take to get used to to tournament's surface? Everybody says Moscow's surface is not usual and it take a lot of time to feel a rithm, to feel a court...

- I entered to it from very first game. I wanted to fight, wanted to show good tennis, and sometime I did. But right now I face some issues with phisical preparedness, that's why I lost to Troicki.

- You have negative H2H with Troicki, do you have some problems playing with him?

- You know, I don't feel it's so hard to play with him. He is good as anyone in Top-100, but nothing more than this. Yes, it was hard, because I didn't play about three months, Kremlin Cup is only third tourney after my comeback. I'm trying to find my tennis, I'm going forward step by step, I made another step on this tournament, and will do another on next tournament.

- Have you seen Marat Safin, who invited you to this tournament?

- No, I didn't see him yet. He asked me to come here but didn't come himself (laughter). But I hope I'll see him before I'll get away.

(Marat Safin said to Russian media, that Jo came to Moscow only because he, Marat, asked Jo to come).

- OK, let's change a topic. As I know all french tennis players love music. For example my favourite music channel is MCM...

- Oh yeah, I love french rap!

- Could you please rap us something?

- Hmmm, oh, I don't know, no, thank you, it is not good idea!(laughter)

- OK! Last year I was in Paris on Masters tournament, and one serb journalist asked you who will win YEC, and you said Nikolai Davydenko, and he won! Please, tell me, who will win this year? I'll bet on him!

- (laughter) I don't know, but I say you... Andy Murray.

- You have so many nicknames, what is your favourite one?

- What nicknames do I have? (smiling)

- For example Ali, JoJo, Black Barracuda....

- JoJo? Really? Oh, I like it, let it be JoJo.

- Now tennisplayers love X-Box and Playstation, what do you love?

- X-Box!

(ATP Representative says me my time is over)

- Thank you Jo-Wilfried very much....

- Hey, did you believe I love X-Box?

- Mmmmm... Yeah....

- No! Of course I like Playstation! It's cool!

So it seems Jo did a chat session for the Herald Sun


Quote:
Jo is here now!

[Comment From Johnny boy: ]
Hey Jo. Why do you do those dances when you win?

Hi Johnny Boy. Because people like that. I did it for the first time when I beat Lleyton Hewitt at Queens when I made the top 100 for the first time. People liked it!

[Comment From George: ]
Have you ever heard any of Henri Laconte's commentary? He's very funny when he's watching you or Gael.

Haha. I have heard about it. No comment!!

[Comment From Jenny: ]
What do you think of your next opponent, Alexandr Dolgopolov? Have you ever played him before?

I have played him before at Wimbledon. I beat him in five sets. 10-8 in the fifth last year. It was a tough match. He's a very good player. He plays like no body else, he does a lot of different strokes. He's very difficult to play

[Comment From aussie_boy04: ]
Who do you think will win the Australian Open?

Novak Djokovic. He's playing well

[Comment From Bobbo: ]
Is Muhammed Ali your favourite boxer?

I like him, of course I like him. I think my favourite was Mike Tyson.

[Comment From Rachael: ]
who was your idol growing up?

I liked Pat Rafter. Pete Sampras of course

[Comment From Beau: ]
Jo, what do you like to do when your not playing tennis?

I like to stay with my friends. I like to laugh. I like fishing. I like music. I like dancing!

[Comment From rosemary: ]
Hi Jo-Wilfred, just wanted to wish you luck and ask who do you rate as the best you've ever played?

Of course, Roger Federer at the moment. He's the best in the world

[Comment From clint e: ]
what was your impressions of australia when you where younger compared to now? seeing you have been here a few times now.

Before I thought there was lots of Kangaroos and nothing else. Now I know they love their tennis and there is lots of friendly people

[Comment From Paul Seb: ]
Hey Jo, how do you prepare mentally for such big games against the likes of Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal?

When I play against them I'm the outsider. There's no pressure and I just go out there to play my best and give my all. That's it!

[Comment From Guest: ]
What do you enjoy in Melbourne apart from the tennis?

I go to Crown for dinner. I like the small restaurants in the small streets

[Comment From clint e: ]
have you ever seen A.F.L? Do you like it? Who do You follow?

Yes I've seen it. I don't know a lot about it, I don't know the rules. I've never watched a full game, but I really like it. There are some great athletes that play.

[Comment From clint e: ]
Have you played againts tomic yet? Do you think he could be a star in the making?

No never. I think he can be a good player. He needs to maybe win outside of Australia and I think he'll be a really good player on the tour

[Comment From Matt: ]
whats the hardest thing about playing a night match?

Playing an overhead smash. Sometimes you lose the ball in the lights. For the rest it's really cool to play a night match because the temperature is OK, usually it's not too windy. So it's good

[Comment From Lynsey: ]
Hi Jo! Other than the other French guys, who are some of your friends on the tour?

All of my Davis Cup partners of course are my friends. Other than the French, I have a good relationship with everybody. It's always difficult to have more than small relationships

[Comment From Guest: ]
what are your aims for the season?

Of course to win a major. I think that will be the goal. If I can reach the top five that would be good and to stay healthy as well

[Comment From nas: ]
hi jo, how do you evaluate your participation on this year's australian open?

For the moment it's OK. I played a five set match in the first round. That was tough, but I got through. Yesterday I played well and I'm happy to be in the third round

[Comment From Lou: ]
How are you feeling? Are you completely injury free now?

I feel good. I changed a lot of things in my preparation. So I hope I will be better than the other years. That's always the goal for the new year

[Comment From Guest: ]
when did you start playing tennis?

I started playing at seven. I played soccer and tennis until 13. And then started tennis by itself.


[Comment From Emmah: ]
If you weren't a tennis player, what do you think you would be?

I'd be a soccer player. Eric Cantona is my favourite player

[Comment From Lou: ]
what would you most like to improve about your own game?

Maybe my returns. Novak has the best returns.

[Comment From Martin: ]
which is your best match and why?

My match against against Rafa here in the semi finals in 2008

[Comment From Emily: ]
Jo, what football teams do you follow? I hope to see you in CIncy this year!

I follow Le Mans and Manchester United. Also Marseilles

[Comment From sabrina: ]
hi! is roger as nice as he seen to be...I mean...is he friendly?

He is. He's a really lovely guy

[Comment From daniel: ]
What is your diet? what do you eat and how often? what is your training regieme?

My diet. I try to eat healthy. That's it.

[Comment From DC: ]
Hey Jo what are your favourite Slams?

They are all different. They are all really nice. I cannot say one is better than another. But I like this one because everyone is really relaxed. There is the sun as well. I like Roland Garros because it's in my country. Wimbledon is like my garden.

[Comment From Anon: ]
Do you find it hard to play in the Australian heat?

Of course. It's difficult. But I think for me it's good to play in the heat because other players find it hard.

[Comment From Darren: ]
You always seem to do well in Melbourne. What's your secret? Do you like playing here?

I stay relaxed and cool.

[Comment From john: ]
hi jo,what and where was ur best permanences?


My best performance was here in 2008 when I made the final. Maybe also when I won a Masters event in Paris. I played unbelievable

[Comment From DC: ]
What do you think of Rod Lava Arena? Do you enjoy it?

I love playing there all the time. It's a nice arena. And the fans get behind me all the time. They're really nice with me, even when I play on Margeret Court or court 17, they are always with me and I really like that


I have to go now. Goodbye, thanks for talking with me. And no worries mate! I like that saying

All his last interview are a bit worrying. I don't know what's the doctors said but when you decided to change your game because of your body that's serious. Well he still enough good for one shot . Jo No Limit Tsonga

Quote:
: «Où j'en suis de ma carrière ? Qu'est-ce que je cherche vraiment ? Avant je mettais toute ma vie au service d'une idée : la réussite sociale. J'avais les dents qui rayaient le parquet pour mettre ma famille et moi-même à l'abri du besoin. (...) Il fallait trouver un nouveau truc qui me fasse vibrer : je veux y aller à fond dans le tennis d'attaque, jouer pour moi et pour gagner des grands titres. (...) C'est ça le projet : plus de jeu au filet, plus de slice, plus de variations et, surtout, des "winners" direct. J'en ai marre de courir pour défendre. Je ne suis pas fait pour ça. (...) Je veux revenir à un jeu "no limit". Comme au début, sauf qu'aujourd'hui j'ai plus de métier et des bases en fond de court plus solides. Et tant pis si je suis 50e mondial.
Quote:
JO-WILFRIED TSONGA : «Je fais ce changement car je n'ai pas le choix pour la deuxième partie de ma carrière. Comme je ne tiens pas physiquement, je change les choses. C'est une nouvelle aventure qui commence et comme toujours quand on change, il y a des galères. Mais ça sourira plus tard. Le scénario a un peu dérapé. Je dois avaler quelques pilules avant que ça marche mais j'ai envie de changer d'optique de jeu. Ce n'est pas l'attaque à tout va, mais c'est être plus performant sur service/volée, prendre des balles plus tôt, changer de tempo.» (AFP)
