Default Re: Chucho News and Articles

ok, another interview
This one is from PARA TI magazine (October issue). As this mag is like the Arg. Cosmopolitan, they get a little too personal , but the guy replies the questions
There are some new little pieces of information too I think it´s a nice interview
And there are some typos and mistakes for sure, some "s" missing somewhere, and some words that are not exactly the correct ones, but I hope it´s understandable.
The pics are in the photos thread http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...&postcount=312

“When a woman attracts me, I must take the lead”

José Acasuso

The Davis Cup hero opened the doors of his apartment, introduced us to his parents and told us how is it to be part of the “Legión”, at 23. Here we tell you everything about “Chucho”: loves fast cars, he would like to retire and open a restaurant, likes inaccessible women and, moreover, he doesn´t have a girlfriend…

You are going to receive a present that doesn´t enter by the door. That´s what Selva Olmo was told to distract her from the real present she would receive in her last birthday: the number 55. What happends is that his younger son, the tennis player José Acasuso has to, inevitably, incline his head to walk through the door of his childhood house in Posadas, Misiones. And it´s not the result of a big ego for having defeated the australian Lleyton Hewitt with a decisive result that let our country reach the Davis Cup final. This guy is 1.90 meters height. The family anecdote is recreated by Selva, while she takes the mate that Juan Andrés just made in the apartment where he lives with José (31, lawyer). There, in Palermo neighbourhood lives her 2 older sons (she has got a daughter too, Gabriela, 32, lawyer too).
There´s a big window from wall to wall in the place and in one of the corners, a telescope that – as it´s announced by the hosts- “has to be calibrated because it gives back the image upside down”. In front, a bar full of liquor bottles and on the other side black and white leather couches strategically placed in front of a plasma tv and music and DVD players.
In the centre of the room, a coffe table, where sports magazines accumulate and the missionary newspaper El Territorio, stands out. Selva says to Para Ti: “Do you have an idea of what we struggled to make this kids study?”, while her husband José Andrés (57) excuses himself to go to have a nap before taking the bus to Posadas.
There, she is an adviser in a wine store and he manages El Mensú, a family restaurant. “I tried every job, except being a stripper”, the father of the new promise of tennis will joke later. It was in 1998 when the family economy was complicated and the priority was making the older siblings finish their law careers. José could continue playing tennis thanks to the economic help of an uncle, the lawyer Julio Ruso. “Luckily I started playing well immediately and he only had to help me for a couple of months. I played tennis and basket and did bad in school. So my “viejos” (parents) told me I had to choose one of the three things and do it well" remembers José. He didn´t like to study (finally quited in 3rd high school grade) and in his home tennis was always present: the father of his mother had a tennis club in Posadas and all the Acasuso family played weekly.

-What was the first thing you bought with the money you earned in the first tournaments?
- This apartment and later my car: an Audi A3, I wanted it for a long time and I indulged myself. In the rest, I only buy what I need, I´m not the kind of person crazy for shopping centers.
-Why do you think tennis players are back in the centre of the scene?
-Yes, There´s a lot of people that was “hooked” by tennis and now watches the matches. It seems to me that has to do with a generation having good results and that creates enthusiasm. But the people trick themselves with us.
-What are you refering to?
We don´t have a super idyllic life. People sees you are well physically and doing well and imagines that we have a perfect life, we travel and know the best places of the world,
-And isn´t it that way?
-yes, but we never get to enjoy anything. We are in a club or in the hotel all day, not everything as is seen through a pink glass: we spend a lot of time alone and away from our families.
-The tennis player career is a short career, what will you do when you retire?
-I would love to have a restaurant, like my dad, or do something related with cousine/food. I would like a lot to drive in Formula 1, I love cars. (ok, this sounds as if he were 5 and was asked what would he like to do as a grown up )

A “bombón” (could be translated as “hottie” ) in the court
Posadas is the place of the map where José escapes when he can and according to his mother, “every time he goes, sleeps till midday and goes out with friends at night. We encourage him. We don´t want him to burn stages and then regret about it, he is still a kid "(maybe the best translation is “very young” or something like that).
-Why did your mother told us that she is anxiously waiting for you to cut your hair?
-(Laughs) I promised I´ll shave my head if we win the DC final
-What other rituals do you have before going out to play?
- In every tournament I take the shower in the same shower, if I´m winning I never change. If it´s occupied, I don´t care about anything and wait all the time necessary till it´s free. Moreover, I never shave before a tournament. (that explains a lot of things )
-This are to go to court. And outside the court, how do you do? Let agree that we like tennis players…
- I´m not doing bad, but the truth is that “no me la creo” (this is like saying you don´t believe everything that is said about you, you don´t believe you´re more than what you really are). It´s inevitable that as more well known you are, the better you do and women give you more attention. But now I do my life and nothing more.
-But I suppose unusual (bizarre) things happened to you…
-During DC some girls sent me letter saying they admired me and loved me, but it´s a situation that makes me feel quite weird. I don´t understand… why me?! I don´t even mention when they confess me they follow me by Internet or admit having photos of me stored. (duh! )
-The Russian Maria Sharapova and Andy Roddick, Gisela Dulko and Chilean Fernando Gonzalez and the list continues. Why are they so many couples in tennis?
-The same happends between actors, as you are all day together it´s quite feasible that you end up having a relationship with a soap opera actress. In adittion to that, it´s very difficult to understand a tennis player, accept the long trips, for example. Someone who lives it from inside understands it better.
-How´s your love life?
-It has been a long time since I had a girlfriend and the truth is that I´m fine like this. My priority is my career and I prefer traveling without missing someone. But if I liked someone a lot, a lot, a lot, I would think about it.
-It has to be something very strong..
-Yes, because I´m great like this. Moreover, I´m still young: I´ll have time for that. But hey! I don´t have a bad time, I go out a lot, generally Saturdays night to Opera Bay or Crobar, as I don´t train Sundays.
-What a moment for your friends!
-There´s always someone who says: “I´m battling for an hour and it´s easy for you”
-Your have a “smooth way”. Are you one of those you fall in love with the girl that doesn´t look at you?
-Well,…as any man I like a woman that says no, that makes things a little difficult. Generally, when someone attracts me I must take the lead.
-Sharapova is a feminine icon between the tennis players?
-If I have to choose I prefer Kournikova (Anna), I find her prettier and sexier.

Pure calm
Without stop pressing the TV remote control buttons, José confesses to Para Ti that he is excited (maybe not such a strong word) reading Digital Fortress, by Dan Brown, an author he usually reads in his free time when he travels. He maintains a monocord tone and softly mixes inner serenity and shyness.
-How do you handle the pressure?
- I work a lot in the mental aspect to be able to regulate and have more strength. I´ve had a sports psychologist for two years, and every time I need it I go to him.
-Did the doping sanctions to Guillermo Cañas and Mariano Puerta surprise you? Do you think controls are too strict?
-I think that in the last cases the Argentine tennis players were very negligent. But this is a little like “every man for himself” (or I think that “devil take the hindmost” is the compound form for this too… Means that no one will defend or take care for you, you have to do it on your own)
-Why?
If you´re in a tournament, your throat aches and the ATP doctor gives you something to take and you´re positive, you´re guilty. That is what happened to Cañas. You can certify that the doctor gave it to you and you´re still guilty. Sometimes we are very unprotected.
-And how do you handle it?
-I take my medicine kit en every trip, everything I can take if my head, stomach or throat aches.
-How do you get along with the rest of the tennis players?
-With Cañas and Chela very well, because they are calmed like me: we have friends in common and we go out a lot to eat.
-And who is the opposite if of calm are we speaking?
-Mariano Zabaleta, for example, he is an “electric” guy, he doesn´t slow down for a second, he can´t stay seated more than 10 minutes.
-And David Nalbandian?
-He is super calmed: he makes his life
-And who in the Legión is the one that receives all the jokes?
-When we train no one is free of them…
-And what are you teased for?
-I was teased for the missionary accent when I arrived to Buenos Aires, but luckily, that´s in the past.

He was the one who introduced Chucho to tennis I think and that is a sad loss for Chucho, but I just hope he remembers the good times.

you´re welcome. I just corrected a couple of little things in the interview.
BTW, Massú defeated Chucho 7-5 7-6(8-6) yesterday in his first match in the Indoors Master Tennis in Cordoba.
Today he´ll play for the third place against Piquito (aka Monaco).

oh, Choupi, i think he had no fun...he was itred, and he needs really a vacation! and so he failed a lot and he felt no well. He even didn't smail after the match when he received a littl present from the organization just for being there (a small iron racket). He jsut wanted to go home, i think...Anyway, now he can rest and enjoy his vacations before 2007 season.

thanks for the tranlsation, lau!!
Para Ti is a very superficial magazine in Buenos Aires, just jet-set and top models and stars of the moments! i was surprised that these women paid attention on Chucho...maybe it prooved his sex-appeal with women!
he is very calm and shy, i am sure he doesn't like so much such kind of interviews but he did it quite well

Chucho defeated Massu in straight sets in the 3rd place match and now will rest up for a few days and then begin his training again.
