The beginning of the interview from Tennis Mag' was translated there by Esther (post #24...):

I pity his poor mother too if she's so anxious and insists on following his results...Not good for the heart.
And i'd really like to know what's going on in Paulo's brain sometimes, that's true Silverwhite! As i said, i'd like to fix everything that goes wrong there...

Hi everyone! Here`s a little interview in spanish (and 1 photo) to Paulo in Canada this year. http://www.tennis7.net/Entrevistas-Sub.htm If you want I can translate it during the weekend (I`m not very good translating anyway )
I don´t think he says something new, but if you want me to do it, just let me know

I understand almost everything.
It's not very usual to read spanish article about Paulo so thank you very much Lau.

It's funny to see that for every journalists in the world (not only french ones), Paulo is the guy who lost a DC match in 2002 against Russia. As if it was the only one he played in his whole career... it was 3 years ago... He might be so fed up with all these questions...

A little parenthese for french fans...ehhh j'ai zappé 30 secondes sur le jt de tf1 ce soir c'était un reportage sur michel boujenah (il fait un nouveau spectacle si j'ai bien compris) enfin bref ça m'a fait sourire ils le filmaient en train de taper la balle à RG...et là, la voix off qui précise que c'est contre Paulo !! Effectivement on pouvait voir paulo en face en train de lui renvoyer gentiement la balle, un peu comme un coach deluxe. Il a fait un beau point à un moment et paulo l'a félicité en rigolant.
Voilà pour l'anecdote, rien d'exaltant mais c'était assez surprenant.

Oh i've just seen it. It's kinda weird to see Paulo playing with Michel Boujenah i mean, i didn't know Boujenah knew how to play tennis neither did i know he was mates with Paulo (or so it seems)

I knew Boujenah was a tennis fan but only about his love for women's tennis and Mauresmo etc...Didn't know he cared about men's tennis and knew some players...
You're right. Paulo makes his best to send him the slowest, easiest balls possible and he runs as if he was trying to defend a winner!
Too funny to see how proud of him he is too...He was in the stands for yesterday's Fed Cup matches as always (always there during RG, at any tie of anything taking in place in France, he was at the Rogers Cup in Montréal two years ago to watch Mauresmo's matches while he was directing a movie there etc...).

Thank you for tolding us about that, Marine!

In l'équipe yesterday:

Mathieu passe la première
de Vincent Cognet
Le Français, inconstant ces dernières semaines, a remporté hier le premier match de sa carrière au POPB.

Paul-Henri Mathieu disputait hier soir, face à Davide Sanguinetti, son cinquième match dans l'enceinte du Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy. Que ce soit en Coupe Davis (lors de la finale 2002 contre la Russie) ou en individuel, il avait toujours quitté le court la tête basse. Mais avec l'Alsacien, prévoir, c'est se tromper. Venu à Paris sur la lancée d'une fin de saison cahoteuse, PHM a pourtant exorcisé le mauvais sort en décrochant son premier succés au POPB (5-7 7-6 6-4). Même si son niveau de jeu ne fut pas étincelant, il y a des moments où il est interdit de cracher dans la soupe. "Ce soir, l'important c'était de gagner, résuma Mathieu.C'est un match que je suis allé cherché au fond de moi-même. Je trouve ça plus méritoire que d'avoir joué du grand tennis et d'avoir gagné 6-2 6-2. ( erm I would have rather a 6-2 6-2 win) Voilà, j'ai fait avec les moyens du bord...Le public m'a bien poussé à la fin du 2ème set".
Pour la première fois de sa carrière, Mathieu a traversé la saison sans essuyer la moindre blessure. Alors, pour rattraper le temps perdu en 2003 (abdominaux déchirés) et en 2004 (poignet gauche inutilisable pendant 6 mois), il a joué, beaucoup joué. Parfois bien joué, parfois surjoué, parfois déjoué. Des 331 joueurs ayant pris part au circuit cette saison, Mathieu apparaît dans le top 10 au nombre de tournois disputés (27, Bercy compris). Mais il reste loin du top 10 tout court. "J'ai mal géré mon calendrier et j'ai beaucoup trop joué, reconnut-il hier. Ca ne m'a pas du tout servi. Mais, j'attendais tellement la saison indoor...J'ai connu trois semaines difficiles, j'en ai bavé, mais ce soir il y la victoire. Maintenant, je vais donner tout ce qu'il me reste." Fernando Gonzalez l'attend au deuxième tour.

Le deuil de ses 20 ans
Il y a trois ans, PHM remportait le tournoi de Lyon, dans la foulée de son premier titre à Moscou. Il atteignait ainsi, à vingt ans, le 36è rang mondial. Il n'a jamais retrouvé pareil standing. Classé 56è cette semaine, le Français est loin d'avoir exploité tout son potentiel. Mathieu frappe fort, très fort, mais pas toujours là où il faut. Le bras et les jambes ne sont pas en cause. Le mal se situe plus haut, dans cette satanée boîte cranienne qui parasite l'action et instille le doute. En tennis, tout est affaire de confiance. Mathieu n'échappe pas à l'axiome.
"Ce qui entraîne la stabilité d'un joueur, c'est la confiance, explique Patrice Hagelauer, qui entraînait le Français pendant Roland Garros. " 'Paulo' manque encore de cette confiance en lui. Il a besoin, pour son jeu, basé sur la force de percussion, de ne pas se poser de questions. Paulo, c'est comme si tu appuyais sur un bouton. Parfois, tout peut être en place, fonctionner à la perfection, son niveau de jeu peut alors être extraordinaire. Mais, quand il y a doute, tout peut dérailler."
"En fait, Paul-Henri paye son manque de constance, précise son coach Thierry Tulasne. Il a voulu tout jouer mais n'a pas été assez costaud mentalement pour tout jouer à fond. L'objectif est que , l'an prochain, il joue tous ses matchs à 100%, même quand il sera fatigué. Je serai plus directif sur l'établissement de son programme". (that's a good thing! Was it really necessary to play some clay tournaments before the indoor season???)
Très tôt habitué aux lauriers et aux louanges qui vont de pair, Mathieu vit mal ces moments difficiles qui jalonnent une carrière."Sa frustration vient aussi du fait que sa carrière n'a pas pris la tournure de celle d'un Gasquet ou d'un Monfils, souligne Tulasne.Il faut qu'il fasse le deuil du Paul-Henri qui voulait être dans le top 10 à vingt ans. Qu'il se dise que c'est son histoire à lui, qu'il construit sa carrière à lui, et qu'il a simplement subi des blessures au mauvais moment. Il doit se servir de son passé pour se bâtir. La solution, c'est lui qui la trouvera." En déchiffrant l'énigme du POPB, Mathieu a déjà fait un petit pas an avant. Suite du rébus dans les jours, et surtout les mois, à venir.

I will try to translate it ASAP (if it's needed)... it's a really good article even if it's a bit harsh on him. If he reads it, may be it will motivate him...

Translation of the article from l'équipe:

Mathieu goes into first

The French player, inconstant these last weeks, won the first match of his career at Bercy.

Yesterday evening, PHM played against Davide Sanguinetti, his fifth match on the court of Paris-Bercy. Whether in Davis Cup (in the final of 2002 against Russia) or in the Master Serie, he had always left the court defeated. But with the Alsacian, foreseeing is getting wrong. In Paris, after a bumpy end of season, PHM has, however, warded off fate by succeeding for the 1st time in the POPB (Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy), 5-7 7-6 6-4. Even if his level of game wasn’t brilliant, there are moments when it’s forbidden to complain.
Tonight, the most important was to win, said Mathieu. This is a match that I went for deep inside of me. I think it’s more rewarding than having played great tennis and winning 6-2 6-2. I made due with what I had on hand. The crowd really helped me at the end of the 2nd set.”

For the first time in his career, Mathieu got through the whole season without a single injury. So, to make up for lost time in 2003 (torn abdominal muscles) and in 2004 (left wrist unusable during 6 months), he played; he played a lot. Sometimes well-played, sometimes overplayed, sometimes outplayed. Over 331 players committed in the main tour, Mathieu is in the top 10 of the numbers of tournaments played (27, Bercy included). But he is still far from the real top 10. “I badly organised my schedule, and I played too much, he said. It didn’t help me. But I was expecting so much from the indoor season… I had three really tough weeks, I had a rough time of it, but tonight there is the victory. Now, I am gonna give all that is left.” Fernando Gonzalez is waiting for him in the 2nd round.


The mourning of his 20 years old

Three years ago, PHM won the Open de Lyon, in the wake of his 1st title in Moscow. He reached, then, at the age of 20, the 36th rank. He has never reached it again since. Ranked 56th this week, the French player is still far from having exploited all his potential. Mathieu hits hard, really hard, but not always where he has to hit. The arm and the legs aren’t in cause. The harm is located higher, in this bloody cranium which parasites the action and instils the doubt. In tennis, everything is a matter of confidence. Mathieu isn’t an exception to the rule.

“What leads to the constancy of a player is confidence, explains Patrice Hagelauer, who coached the French player during Roland Garros. Paulo still lacks of this self-confidence. For his game based on percussion power, Paulo needs not to have any doubts. Paulo, it’s like you would press a button. Sometimes, everything can be in place, work to perfection, then his level of game can be extraordinary. But, when there is doubt, everything can be on the blink.”

“Actually, Paul-Henri pays for his lack of constancy, explains Thierry Tulasne. He wanted to play everything but hasn’t been mentally strong enough to play everything totally. The objective is that, next year, he will play all his matches at 100%, even when he will be tired. I’ll be more directing on his schedule.”
Very early, he had been used to praise and now, Mathieu has hard time with all these difficult moments which punctuate a career. “His frustration comes from the fact that his career didn’t take the same shape as Gasquet’s or Monfils’, underlines Tulasne. He has to come out of mourning for the Paul-Henri who wanted to be in the top 10 at 20 years old. He has to realise that it’s his own history, that he builds his own career and that he just had been unlucky to have struggled against injuries at the wrong time. He has to use his past to build himself up. He’s the only one able to find the answer".
By breaking this loosing streak in the POPB, it’s a little move forward for Mathieu. The course of the plot is to follow in the coming days and above all in the coming months.

Btw, GOOD LUCK PAULO for the 2nd round
