    [双语新闻]小威回击“威廉姆斯姐妹没落”说(图)
      An Interview with Serena Williams
        澳网女子单打7号种子、美国选手塞莉娜·威廉姆斯(小威廉姆斯)以6-2,6-2轻松战胜了澳网2号种子、法国的毛瑞斯莫,进军女子单打半决赛。赛后澳网公开赛官方网站对小威进行了采访。

        问:现在人们都说威廉姆斯姐妹俩已经开始走下坡路了。大威在8进4的比赛中已经输了。你觉得是不是很有必要拿下今年的澳网女子单打冠军以回击这样的说法呢?

        小威:说句实话,我可不喜欢这样的评论。关于这样的议论,我已经厌倦了,不想再说什么了。但这实在是不公平。我们姐妹俩一直都在很努力的训练。我们都曾经受过很严重的伤病困扰,比如我就因伤动过手术。手术后,我杀进了温网的决赛。我知道能做到这一点的人可是不多。

        我的姐姐大威胃部曾经受过很严重的伤。我的胃也受过伤,但没有她那么严重。如果我的伤也和她那么严重的话,今天我就不会站在这里了,当然这是后话。昨天大威的对手(莫里克)让她大吃一惊,在比赛中大威犯了一些不该犯的错误。不过除此之外,我们拥有一个非常和睦的家庭。出于某种原因,今年我们的排名比去年有所降低,但当你发现还有许许多多其他很重要的事情在等着你的时候,你要想马上恢复到最佳状态那真的是很难。

        所以,其实我们并没有“没落”,我们不是来了吗?我根本不需要在澳网非要拿个冠军来证明什么。我知道我来了,也知道我是世界上最棒的女子网球选手之一,这就够了。

        问:你现在的表现要比两天前在场上的表现好得多。

        小威:是的,你说得很对,不过比赛都已经过去了。我现在所想的只有下一轮比赛。

        问:毛瑞斯莫在今天的比赛中有点伤。你发现她在步伐移动方面有什么问题吗?

        小威:这我可说不好。在比赛中,我关注的只有球。

        问:今天的比赛让人很难受吗?是不是你所经历过的天气最热的一场比赛?

        小威:今天天气的确非常热。是不是最热的一场比赛?或许是吧,至少是天气最热的比赛之一。

        问:如果因为赛场天气太热,赛会组织者将球场屋顶封闭,你会觉得更好些吗?或者你更喜欢在高温中比赛?

        小威:对我来说,这无所谓。如果他们真的将场地屋顶封闭,我也会觉得没什么的。可能这样我会感觉更凉爽些,但不封闭我也照样能打好球。

        问:在你和毛瑞斯莫的交锋史中,你总是处在上风。你是她的克星吗?

        小威:我想是这样的:如果你总是输给某一个人,那么下一次你和她交手之前,你就会说我没什么好输的了,就好比俗话说的“光脚的不怕穿鞋的”。在这种情况下,有良好获胜纪录的一方和总是输掉比赛的一方,在心理上各有优势。

        问:关于沙拉波娃你有什么看法?

        小威:她球打得真的很好,而且意志顽强。

        问:你有没有看到她今天比赛的后半段挥汗如雨的情景?

        小威:没有,我一直把注意力放在自己的比赛上。不过我可以想象。今天天气很热,她打满了3盘,这你知道,肯定是很不容易的。

        问:当你看见她在高温下挥汗如雨时,你是不是觉得在同等情况下你更有优势,因为你好像不怎么害怕这样的天气。

        小威:我觉得我的优势是一旦进入比赛,我就激情似火。正如我所说,如果我发挥得好的话,没有谁能打败我。有时我的失误是多了一点,因为在比赛中我总是很兴奋。

        问:现在有很多选手都有过在重大赛事中击败过你的纪录,而且这些选手通常年纪都比你小。进入澳网半决赛对阵沙拉波娃你有何感想?和她比赛你紧张吗?或者你特别有动力?谈谈你的想法。

        小威:说句实话,我觉得我没什么好怕输的。我想在温网决赛对阵沙拉波娃前我太紧张了。那时我睡不着觉,就连呼吸都很困难。有时你越想要什么就越办不到。所以,这一次我感觉还不错。我为自己感到骄傲,我觉得我准备得不错。

        问:同几个月前相比,你现在的击球感觉如何?

        小威:稍好一些。这两天妈妈在我训练的时候总是给我施加一些压力,应该说是鼓励和动力。我想她对我在训练中的一些击球方式不满意,所以她总是提醒我说:“塞莉娜,这样可不行啊!”我想妈妈的话对我帮助很大。

        问:毛瑞斯莫曾经说很难判断你在比赛中的表现好坏,因为你所做的就是把球回过网,很少失误。你同意她的说法吗?

        小威:的确如此,毛瑞斯莫在今天的比赛中确实失误要比平常多很多。在今天的比赛中,我基本上没怎么让她跑动起来。我知道她今天失误很多,她通常很少在前两盘有如此多的失误,一般来讲她在打到第3盘的时候失误才会增加。

        问:在最近两场你同毛瑞斯莫的比赛中,你们之间的比分差距十分接近。今天你有没有想到会如此轻松地获胜?

        小威:我在比赛中只是告诫自己这会是一场轻松的比赛,我会过关的,因为我是最好的选手。

        问:下一轮你将对阵沙拉波娃。这是一场复仇的比赛吗?

        小威:复仇?不,我只是把这场比赛看成我进军决赛的机会,不过我首先要过这一关。

        问:在顶多还剩两场比赛的情况下,你是不是觉得冠军触手可及了呢?

        小威:我和沙拉波娃要拿冠军的话都还剩两场比赛。我们一定会全力以赴去争取的。走着瞧吧。
        (张海山)

        Q. The prevailing talk is that the Williams are "declining." Venus has lost. Do you feel you need to win this tournament to counter that sort of talk?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I don't -- I don't appreciate that language, to be honest with you. I'm tired of not saying anything, but that's not fair. We've been practicing really hard. We've had some serious injuries. I mean, I've had surgery. And after surgery, I got to the finals of Wimbledon. I don't know too many people that have done that.

        Venus had a severe strain in her stomach. I actually had the same injury, but I didn't tear it the way she did. If I would have torn it, I wouldn't have been here. That's another understatement. She played a player yesterday that just played out of her mind and Venus made some errors that she probably shouldn't have made.

        And to top it off, we have a very, very, very, very, very close family. To be in some situation that we've been placed in in the past little over a year, it's not easy to come out and just perform at your best when you realize there are so many things that are so important.

        So, no, we're not declining. We're here. I don't have to win this tournament to prove anything. I know that I'm out here and I know that I'm one of the best players out here.

        Q. That was much better than two days ago on the court.

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Yes. I definitely think it was a lot better. But it's in the past now. I'm focused on the next round.

        Q. Mauresmo was injured a bit. Could you tell she wasn't moving as well?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I mean, I couldn't tell. I was just really looking at the ball and I was trying to be focused on the ball more or less.

        Q. How tough was that out there? Was it one of the hottest experiences?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: It was extremely hot out there. Geez, it was like taking -- it was really hot. Was that the hottest I've been? Maybe. Maybe. It was definitely one of the hottest. Because before I think they closed the roof, so that kind of chilled it out a little bit.

        Q. Would you have been happier if they closed it or do you think it gave you an advantage because you play in the heat all the time?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: To me, it doesn't matter. If they would have closed it, I would have been okay. Probably would have been a little cooler. But if they kept it open, I was fine, too.

        Q. You have such a good record against Amelie. Do you think you're in her head a little bit?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I think when you play a person like that and they have a good record against you, I think next time she plays me, she probably feels she has nothing to lose 'cause I have such a good record. It's like, "Okay, I have nothing to lose here." In a way, it's like I have a little bit of an advantage but at the same time she does, too.

        Q. What about Sharapova?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: She's playing really good. She's really -- I think she's a really mentally tough character out there. So, yeah...

        Q. Did you see any of the end of her match where she appeared to be laboring through the heat?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Not really. I tried to focus on my match. But I can only imagine. It was hot out there, for sure. She played three sets. So that was -- you know, wasn't very easy to do.

        Q. When you find out that she was laboring in the heat, do you feel like you have an advantage in that sort of a case, because you didn't seem to be?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I just feel as if my advantage is going to boil down to me playing, you know, my shots. Like I said, if I play well, then it's hard to beat me. Sometimes I make a few too many errors, get a little excited. But, yeah.

        Q. There are a lot of players that probably have a winning record against you in big tournaments, especially that are younger than you. What is your feeling going into this semifinal against Maria? Are you nervous going into the semifinal with Maria? Are you extra motivated? Where are you?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: To be honest, I feel like I don't have anything to lose. I think I was way too nervous at Wimbledon. I couldn't sleep, I couldn't breathe. Sometimes you want it too bad that you just freak yourself out. So now I feel fine. I feel like I just -- I'm really proud of myself, doing pretty well with my preparation here.

        Q. How are you striking the ball compared to the last few months?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: A little better. My mom got on me this morning in practice and yesterday. She put a lot of pressure -- not pressure, but she got behind me and really motivated me because I think she was a little upset at some of the way my strokes were going. So she was like, "Okay, Serena, you can't do this anymore." That really helped me a lot.

        Q. Amelie said it was tough to judge your performance because basically all you had to do was get the ball back over the net. She was only 50%. What do you say to that?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah, she did make a lot more errors than normal. I don't know if she ran -- I don't remember even running her that much. I know she made a ton of errors. She usually doesn't hit that many errors within two sets like that. Usually it's over three sets so...

        Q. Last two matches against Amelie were very close. Were you expecting such an easy match today?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I was actually expecting to play, not necessarily looking, saying, "Okay, this is going to be easy," I'm expecting to compete, be the best competitor I can out there.

        Q. You play Sharapova in the next round. Do you look at that as a revenge match?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: As a revenge match? No, I look at it as a chance to be in the finals here again. But I got to play that one first.

        Q. Can you start to feel the tournament in your grasp at this point, now that you're two matches away?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Well, there's a few -- I'm two matches away, Maria is two matches away. So we both kind of have it in our grasp and we're both going to be going out there and fighting. We'll see.
