I would hope Bennet would be first choice to play with Mika, seeing as him and arnaud haven't had too great of a start, suppose I am too wishful...Can't wait for the Tsonga match, hope to see an upset

Default Re: Julien Benneteau

In l'Equipe today

Il est sorti vainqueur du duel franco-français de lundi à Miami. Lui, le 72e mondial, s'est qualifié pour les huitièmes de finale du deuxième Masters Series de la saison en dominant le 12e joueur mondial, finaliste de l'Open d'Australie, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6-3, 6-3). Julien Benneteau est heureux, bien sûr. Pourtant, à la sortie du court, on sent chez lui une certaine retenue. « Parce que j'ai envie d'aller plus haut, j'ai envie d'aller plus loin », explique-t-il. Entretien.

«Julien Benneteau, forcément, à la sortie du court, vous êtes content : vous avez battu Jo-Wilfried Tsonga et vous voici en huitièmes de finale du Masters Series de Miami.
Forcément, oui ! Battre « Jo », c'est une belle perf, il est 12e mondial. J'ai réussi à exploiter les conditions qui n'étaient pas faciles, tandis que lui a eu un peu de pression. Ce n'était pas un match facile à jouer pour lui, je pense. Moi, je savais que je n'avais rien à perdre. J'ai réussi à rester solide, à jouer bien tactiquement tout le match et ça c'était vraiment bien.

C'est dans ce domaine-là, la tactique, que vous êtes particulièrement heureux de votre performance ?
Oui, parce qu'au niveau du tennis, vu le vent, c'est très dur de jouer. Il faisait chaud, très humide, et en plus sur ce court, le Grandstand, c'est ouvert, donc il n'y a aucun abri et le vent s'engouffre et tourbillonne. C'est vraiment difficile de bien jouer. Mais j'ai réussi à rester dedans, dans ce que je voulais faire tactiquement pour l'embêter et tout a bien marché. « Jo » a commis quelques erreurs qu'il ne fait pas d'habitude, forcément, mais moi, j'ai réussi à être solide tout au long du match. À l'arrivée, cela fait deux sets assez secs, mais la manière d'y arriver n'était pas aussi facile que le score pourrait le laisser croire.

Rester solide dans votre tête, c'était votre maître-mot avant le match ?
C'est même le seul conseil que Patrice Hagelauer m'avait donné, parce qu'il avait un droit de réserve par rapport à la Coupe Davis. Il m'avait pris à part une heure avant et m'avait dit : il faut que tu y croies, il faut que tu restes solide dans ta tête, à partir de maintenant, et jusqu'à la fin de la rencontre. Et je suis heureux parce que j'ai réussi à le faire.

Compte tenu de son début de saison exceptionnel, une victoire sur Jo-Wilfried Tsonga revêt-elle une saveur particulière ?
Disons que je le bats quand il est 12e mondial... Je ne le bats pas quand il est 30e ou 40e et qu'il revient de blessure. À mon avis, cela ne devait pas être un match facile à jouer pour lui. Il vit des choses un peu différentes depuis fin janvier. J'ai réussi à l'emmener dans la bagarre, à le faire douter, à le faire jouer, à le faire louper par moments, en étant audacieux, en étant un peu plus courageux. De temps en temps, j'ai senti qu'il forçait sur quelques coups droits. Moi, en entrant sur le court, encore une fois vu les conditions, je savais qu'aujourd'hui (lundi), je n'allais pas bien jouer au tennis. Je ne cherchais pas ça. Je cherchais juste à être dans la tactique et à gagner le match.

Vous réalisez un bon début de saison, et pourtant, on vous sent tout en joie contenue. Pourquoi ?
Parce que j'ai envie d'aller plus haut, j'ai envie d'aller plus loin, j'ai envie de plein de choses. C'est un bon début de saison, c'est sûr, mais j'ai envie de plus.

Le plus, cela va être au prochain tour, face à Andy Roddick...
Oui, voilà ! Je l'ai déjà fait et j'adore jouer ces matches-là, donc j'espère être à la hauteur. C'est pour jouer des matches comme ça que l'on fait beaucoup de sacrifices. C'est pour jouer sur un central en night session. Ça, ce sont de matches qui font kiffer !»

Propos recueillis par Myrtille RAMBION, à Miami.
