Лошадь держит удар [Apr. 30th, 2008|01:29 am]
добро пожаловать!


Надо бы освежить сообщество. Понеслась.

Предыстория: Энди Роддик (предположительно, лошадь) был предпоследней (на данный момент) по времени 1-ой ракеткой мира. На этом посту его сменил Роджер Федерер (предположительно, эльф. В обоих практически уверен - Федерер явно эльф, а Энди или лошадь, или моторный оффтоп, но я двумя руками за лошадь.). На момент описываемого события, Энди Роддик обыгрывал Федерера лишь 1 раз, потерпел 12 поражений, в т.ч. 8 подряд. Энди сменил тренера, очень прибавил в игре, в последнем официальном матче с Федерером имел матчбол на своей подаче (подача Роддика - сильнейшая в Туре. 1 раз хорошо подбрось и махни рукой - и финита, наконец-то, ты его сделал.), но проиграл. После этого он обыграл Федерера в товарищеском матче и на момент встречи с Роджером на Australian Open 2007 имел все основания надеяться, наконец, победить злопастного эльфийца. В очном матче Федерер явил миру нечеловеческий уровень игры (даже он, лучший игрок современности, так играет очень редко, пару-тройку раз за год), Роддик попал под каток (или под волну:)) и был попросту уничтожен 6-4, 6-0, 6-2. Под катом текст его послематчевой пресс-конференция (проходила почти сразу после матча, Энди толком не отошёл от разгрома), ставшей очень широко известной, почти знаменитой.

Australian Open: Andy Roddick, Jan 25, 2007
Thursday, 25 January, 2007
R. FEDERER/A. Roddick 6-4, 6-0, 6-2

An interview with: ANDY RODDICK

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Have you ever played anybody so hot like that before?

ANDY RODDICK: I don't know. He played well. You know, I made more errors than I should have in the first. After that, there's no doubt he was coming up with some shots tonight.

Q. What was it like for you just being there at the end of that?

ANDY RODDICK: It was frustrating. You know, it was miserable. It sucked. It was terrible. Besides that, it was fine.

Q. What did Jimmy say to you straight after the game?

ANDY RODDICK: He gave me a beer.

Q. You seem really disappointed. Did you think you had a real crack tonight, a chance?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I was playing well coming in. There's no reason to think ‑‑ if you would have told me this beforehand, I probably ‑‑ I didn't foresee it.

Q. Is that the best you've seen him play for a while?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah. I mean, he played really well tonight. I mean, that's for sure.

Q. Can you just take us from 4‑All on. Up to 4‑4, you're in the match. Then you got broken.

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I got broken. Then I got broken three more times. Then I got broken two more times in the third set. Then it was over 26 minutes later. Is that what you saw, too?

Q. I saw that. On court, what changed from 4‑All till the end?

ANDY RODDICK: That first game, probably the second was pretty crucial. I said it before. I mean, when he gets a lead, you know, he's a great front‑runner, there's no doubt about it. He kind of ran it out at the Open, too.
Once he gets his lead, just gets that much more confidence, I mean, it's tough coming back. There aren't a lot of instances where people have forged a comeback on him.

Q. How do you go forward from here? How do you counter a game like that?

ANDY RODDICK: Well, you know, I just got to keep doing what I do. I wake up every morning. I put in as much as I can every day. I mean, I don't know if you'll find someone who questions that.
You do your best not to get discouraged. You try to take it like a man. I caught an absolute beating tonight. There's no doubt about it. There's no two ways about it. You deal with it and you go back to the drawing board. You act like a professional, and you try to keep working hard.

Q. How do you rate Haas or González' chances against him?


Q. Is he getting better? Is he getting progressively better?

ANDY RODDICK: I don't know. I mean, better than what? You've been around the last three years, haven't you?

Q. Yes.

ANDY RODDICK: So it's been about the same.

Q. You said this week that you thought the gap between you and Roger was closing, or at least wasn't getting any wider.

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, not tonight.

Q. The next time you feel that, will you keep it to yourself?

ANDY RODDICK: No. Have I ever not answered a question honestly? That's honestly the way I felt. I'm not going to keep it to myself. You ask me a question, I'm going to give you an honest answer.
What do you want me to say? Do you want me to come in here and kick my ass on a daily basis? It's not going to happen. I'm going to try to keep fighting. I'm going to try to keep working. That's what I could on a daily basis. I wake up and work my butt off on a daily basis. I'm going to continue to do that.
I'm going to try to take this like a man as much as I can. He outplayed me. He played a lot better than I did tonight. He deserves all the praise that he gets, not only for how he plays, but how he handles himself. Get up tomorrow, look forward.

Q. Beating Safin and Ancic, was this a good tournament?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I thought it was a good tournament. But I've proven to myself that I can get to the semifinals of Grand Slams. I'd love more than anything to get past that, to get over that hurdle for sure.

Q. Obviously he played great. Did you feel like you needed to play much better?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I think I left a lot out there on the table tonight. I don't feel like I played like I have for the rest of the tournament. You know, I've come in here at times and said I played pretty well. You know, he just beat me. I think it was a combination tonight.

Q. Did you think about trying to slow things down there in the second set when he started to get a run?


Q. How much would you have paid in order not to come too this press conference tonight?

ANDY RODDICK: That's about the best question that's been asked.
Well, I mean, I can't really say an amount because I would have gotten fined, what, 20 grand. Obviously, it would have to be less than that, right, if we're thinking logically? It really wouldn't be about the money; it would be about running away and not facing it.
I would pay a lot of money if everyone would just make up stuff that I said and pretend like I was actually here. That would be fine. My dad didn't raise me to run away from it, so here I am.

Q. What next? Davis Cup preparation?


Q. What does that involve? A bit of experience on clay?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, yeah. I'm not sure the exact schedule, but I'll probably maybe try to get down to Florida sometime next week and start preparing. I think the team, we all leave on Saturday of next week.

Q. What did Jimmy say? US Open final experience, you played him tough, got on a roll. Did you talk about that before the match, if Roger gets on a roll, try to do X, Y or Z, slow it down?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, there's a lot of strategy talk. It's not so much like, If you're down 6‑4, 6‑0, 2‑0. We didn't really talk about that. Oops.

Q. Will you try to maybe totally forget about this result and just put it aside?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, it would probably be a lot easier when I'm on that plane flight tomorrow not reading about it.
Yeah, I don't know. I don't know how much you forget it or how much you remember it. I don't know what's better in this situation, to be honest. But it's there. It happened. You deal with it. You try your best to move forward.
I mean, you can't ‑‑ I'm not going to sit here and try to be in denial about it. You know, so I'm just still trying to figure out the best way to move forward.

Q. Do you then study it and learn from it, force yourself to work out what to do next?

ANDY RODDICK: Well, one would think so, yeah. Yeah, you'd think so (smiling).

Q. Some people don't read the papers when they lose the next day. Will you read it, or you prefer not?

ANDY RODDICK: Probably not. Probably not. But it's kind of tough, though. I read the sports section every day of my life. I'm going to kind of have to like maneuver my way around it somehow (smiling). Like get an oversized coffee mug, kind of like smoke and mirrors or something.

Q. How would you write it if you had to write it?


Q. That match.

ANDY RODDICK: How would I rate it?

Q. Write it.

ANDY RODDICK: That was a 10. What a great question.

Q. How would you write it? I was talking fast.

ANDY RODDICK: I was thinking slow.
How would I write it? How could you write a match? How would I write an article?

Q. Yes.

ANDY RODDICK: Probably something similar to what you guys are going to do, I'm sure.

Q. Sort of two steps forward, one step back, but you're moving in the right direction?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, that's probably a good way to write it or rate it (laughter). That's probably what I would write.

Q. Your performance here is better than on court.

ANDY RODDICK: My performance here is better than on court?

Q. Right.

ANDY RODDICK: No shit (laughter). If there were rankings for press conferences, I wouldn't have to worry about dropping out of the top five, I hope.

Q. How do you see the Haas/González game going? What do you make of Fernando's performance at this tournament?

ANDY RODDICK: He's played great. There's no doubt about it. He's played consistently great, which is something maybe that hasn't been easy for him in the past. He's been real impressive. No, he's playing great, so we'll see.

Q. Do you rate him perhaps as a chance against Roger under the circumstances?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah. I mean, I think Roger's the overwhelming favorite, though.

Q. After a night like this, do you sleep well?

ANDY RODDICK: Do I sleep well?

Q. Yes.

ANDY RODDICK: It depends on how much I drink tonight.

Q. Where are you going after this?

ANDY RODDICK: No idea actually.

Да, кстати, недавно, после 11 поражений подряд, он таки одержал свою 2-ую победу над Федерером. Теперь счет их личных встреч 15-2.

В теннисе я совсем левый чайник и смотрю, потому что семья прётся.
Ну вот, не нравится мне Роддик, и все тут :) Надаль, который тоже вроде лошадь, при всей раздражаемости, нравится.
Хотя Федерер, как ни обидно, лучший :) Он не утомляет меня, как зрителя, совершенно неискушенного зрителя, вынужденного смотреть "за компанию".

Роддик мне нравится

своей непосредственностью и безмерным фанатизмом к тому, что он делает. Предельно ограниченный игрок старой американской школы (короткие розыгрыши, отличная подача и мощный удар справа, посредственный удар слева, минимум игрового разнообразия) выжимает из себя всё и даже больше. Ну и плюс у него отличные реакции вне корта. Один только эпизод с девушкой-фанаткой на прессухе чего стоил (найду - выложу):).

А лошадок в Турах много. Рафа, Роддик, Давид Феррер, Сафин, Турсунов, Серена Уильямс - это только навскидку. Плюс др. моторики - орки Ана Иванович (почти наверняка) и Новак Джокович (тут просто уверен). Если нравится игра эльфийца Федерера, могу посоветовать Гаске (тоже, видимо, эльф) и лиску Налбандяна. Тоже весьма творческие ребята, хотя и не так, как Роджер, конечно.

Re: Роддик мне нравится

Гаске не идентифицировала, с остальными соглашусь.

Налбандян очень упертый, если не путаю.

Налбандян очень ленивый

Толстый Дэйв (кроме шуток, он с лишним весом! Как ему удается тренироваться, играть и при этом поддерживать пузико - загадка) любитель адреналина, женщин, машин, гуляний, эээ, а, да, иногда можно и в теннис поиграть. Когда мотивирован, уперт, боевит, хорошо читает игру соперника, очень эстетно играет сам за счет просчета соперника, пауз, хорошего видения корта. На счастье соперников, мотивирован бывает раз-два в год:).

Много умеет на корте. Нечто среднее между Роджером, который вообще от балды играет (но гениально) и Надалем, который играет, "как по рельсам", шаг влево, шаг вправо - уже внештатная ситуация. Т.е. у Дэйва есть несколько вариантов, к которым он все пытается сводить (и если сводит, врагам абзац, даже Федерер далеко не всегда выкручивается), но он всё же далеко не такой схемный, как большинство игроков.

А вот и эпизод с девушкой



Q. Andy, what is going on, if you don't mind, in the love department? You know, you've got all these pretty little kitty girls in the tennis skirts and they're going to come and oogle and ogle you and give you the little winky.
Q. Is it any fun? It's like you got to respect the athlete.
ANDY RODDICK: God, you need to come around more often. This is fun! Jesus.
Q. The girls are here for something.
ANDY RODDICK: I finally have somebody more hyperactive than I am. Unbelievable. What did you eat for breakfast? (Laughter.)
Q. My mother cooked breakfast for me.
ANDY RODDICK: Did she wear one of those cutey little tennis skirts too when she was cooking those eggs this morning? I don't even know what you asked.
Q. I asked what's up in the love department? What's going on now with the career and the profession, you've got, as far as time zones are concerned
Q. Do you make time for love?
ANDY RODDICK: I'm all about the love. (Laughter.) I love everybody. I'm falling in love with you as we speak.
Q. You're wonderful. Thank you for being here.
ANDY RODDICK: You're awesome.
Q. Yeah, I know. On behalf of myself and all the young girls...
ANDY RODDICK: Thank you.
Q. We have a crush on you. We adore your performances here.
ANDY RODDICK: Thank you. I will never forget this moment. "

Правда, мне с трудом удалось перевести, но на экране это выглядело впечатляюще.

Было ощущение, что в него неожиданно кинули мяч, будто укусили, ему с трудом удалось отбить, но дальше он отлично сыграл :) Роддик, похоже тот, кому отлично подойдет определение "хороший парень" :)

Когда я с семьей смотрю теннис у меня на лбу светится и пульсирует надпись "оборотень". Уже два года не могу толком въехать. Но если я добью себя, они от моей памяти уже не смогут избавиться :)))

Вы о каком видео?

После разгрома или про любофф с девушкой?

Роддик, да, хороший такой непосредственный парень. Юморной при этом. Блог смешной вел, вот: http://www.atptour.ru/viewtopic.php?t=782 (там с переводами).

Да, совсем забыл Братьев Брайянов. Тоже лошади дикой моторности (или таки моторные оффтопы, но ничего, кроме моторности, этого не выдаёт - по поведению оборотни-оборотнями, простые такие.). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jb7RotVYoo

Эпизод Andy Roddick on Love.

Здорово. Спасибо за ссылки!!
Потрясающе интересно.

Линейка моторности хорошо для тенниса, конечно. Но я, как наблюдатель очень утомляюсь от них :)))
