Admittedly, Lisicki made her complaint against a lesser light of women’s tennis than Sharapova or Azarenka.She was playing her Wimbledon first-round match against Bojana Jovanovski, the world No 117 from Serbia, when she could take it no longer and spoke to the umpire, Mariana Alves.This post is a bit different than what I usually do, but I volunteered to translate a tabloid inteview with Svetlana Kuznetsova, and I guess some of you might find it interesting :) Just one precaution - while Russian is my first language, I'll probably mess it up where current colloquialisms are involved, so sorry in advance for that. Of course, anything can happen in life, but I think that only a Russian man can truly understand me. - Shamil Tarpischev once claimed that Svetlana Kuznetsova acted like a star. I didnt come to some ceremony in Moscow, where tennis players received prizes according to their year results. I strolled along the Neva, and took a boat ride on the river. Still, I hope you find it more useful than Google Translate (which I used to help me here from time to time). ********************************************************* The famous tennis player confessed that she doesn't live in Monaco anymore. The cooperation between a sportswoman and her coach is similar in a way to the relationship between a girl and a guy. (Smiles) I don't mix personal relationships with professional ones. - Name three major qualities in a man that's able to match Svetlana Kuznetsova. First of all, a man has to have a core, I love people that are true to their word. They tried to convince me, but I said from the start: I won't come. But Shamil Anvyarovich was hurt by me, decided that I was acting like a star. Do you feel any pull home to your mom and dad, even a little bit? Imagine that, it was my longtime dream, but I didn't have the time previously. Dahin war für ihn die Möglichkeit, sein bisher schwaches Abschneiden bei den Grand-Slam-Turnieren aufzuhübschen.Schon in Melbourne und Paris verlor der 32-Jährige seine Auftaktpartien.
„Es ist schwierig zu sagen, es hat mir heute Spaß gemacht“, sagte Kohlschreiber.
The second time happened in Shanghai in 2008, against Andy Murray in their final round robin. Even with an extended break, none of them came to Tokyo with any sort of mindset to win either. With a performance so awesome I had to do a shrieky rendition of “SEE YOU SOOOOON/ON THE MOOOOON” to celebrate.
Unsurprisingly, Federer lost both of those matches. Stung by her own fault-fest against Oudin at the US Open, Masha Fierce has reverted back to her old serve in Tokyo.
But will she make the same objection against Sharapova in the opening match on Court No 1 on Monday? “I’m going to focus on myself in that match,” she said. It did bother me in my last match and that’s why I complained. How would she handle a direct appeal to the umpire from her opponent?
“Well, I haven’t been in that situation,” said the tournament favourite.
