    [双语新闻]沙拉波娃:我不改变打法,我只是适应环境
      Maria Sharapova Interview
    摘要:
        在法国网球公开赛女子单打比赛首轮的第2天,俄罗斯美少女沙拉波娃在经过了2小时26分的激烈拼搏后,最终以6:7,6:2和6:4艰难地战胜了同胞内斯卡娅。赛后沙拉波娃接受了法网官方网站记者的专访。

        记者:在“旷日持久”的法网一开始,你就碰上了一场硬仗。你喜欢这样的比赛吗?对阵俄罗斯同胞,对你而言有什么特殊意义吗?在当今网坛,现在谁也不敢小看俄罗斯红粉军团。

        沙拉波娃:当你觉得就要输掉整场比赛时,你却扭转战局,反败为胜。带着胜利来之不易的感觉走下赛场时,你会想,我的刻苦训练都得到了回报。能取得今天比赛的胜利,感觉真是很幸运。当然,你知道,对阵俄罗斯姑娘从来都不会很轻松的。她是你的同胞。不过当你踏上赛场的一刹那,你就会努力忘却你的对手是谁,或者她来自何方。

        记者:根据今年的抽签结果,你有信心超越去年你在法网打入四分之一比赛的成绩吗?或许你认为今年有望登顶冠军?

        沙拉波娃:我只是一次打一场比赛。我根本不关心我去年干了什么,以及我今年将要干什么。我只关心我下一个对手是谁。

        记者:在第3盘你的对手3:领先,并且还差一分就要4:1领先时,那时你在想什么?

        沙拉波娃:比赛绝对艰苦。当你在第3盘落后时,你想的可能就是祈求可怜吧(大笑)。实际上,当时我只是努力去拼,去博出一条路来。随着第3盘比赛的进行,光线也变得明亮了一些,球速也开始加快。这样我就能打出有力的击球,让内斯卡娅望球兴叹。在第1和第2盘,我感觉我每一次的回球,不管好坏,她都能接回来。在第3盘我感到球速开始加快,从中我也受益匪浅。

        记者:你的父亲对你意味着什么?他给你提什么建议了吗?

        沙拉波娃:我的父亲,首先他就是我的父亲。关于建议吗,他告诉我在比赛当中应该如何去做。我的父亲和母亲,为了我的网球职业都付出了很大的牺牲。我们一起共同分担了许许多多的快乐和痛苦。特别是快乐,对我的家人来说更是有着不同寻常的意义。

        记者:有一些球员,他们在气温较高的环境下打得非常出色。你对今年的红土场地比赛感觉如何?今年柏林网球赛时的天气就不好。阿加西很喜欢炎热的天气。

        沙拉波娃:当然,我更喜欢阳光灿烂的日子,那样的天气很适合比赛。但当天气变得阴暗,而球又好像凝固在空气中飞行得很慢的时候,我想我的对手回球的成功率要更高一些,这时为了争夺一分,双方要打上好几个来回。在这方面我还有很多需要改进的。对于多次出现的来回球,我有时会失去耐心。但现在我知道,只要耐心,我总会比对手多打出一记球。

        记者:在网球历史上,有些球员在红土场地比赛时也并没有太多地去改变自己的打法和风格,比如莫尼卡,然而他们却最终赢得了比赛。你觉得在法网,你需要加强防守吗?或者你认为你只需要按照自己的风格去打,但在击球方面更准确一些,在进攻上,更主动一些?

        沙拉波娃:说实话,不论是什么样的比赛场地,我都很难改变自己的打法。我可以去适应场地,做一些个调整,但我决不会改变风格,并且突然之间就变成一个典型的红土选手的。这不是我的风格,我不会那样做的。我知道,在红土场地的优势并不像在那种速度很快的场地那么明显。但年复一年,我感觉承受冗长比赛的能力越来越强。我现在在多回合较量中也能拿分,也能打出漂亮的球来,而去年我感觉累得快死了。

        记者:你的对手内斯卡娅,看起来她的能力要远远超过她的排名。她才18岁,速度快,有秘密武器。和她比赛,你有没有想过,即使比赛很艰难,也应该承认自己打得不错?

        沙拉波娃:我可不认为我在第1盘打得好。我当时完全跟着对手的节奏打。当时我没有意识到,我自己根本没有进行相应的调整。在第2盘,我的步伐灵活了一些。每当打出一记势大力沉、角度很深的球时,你的信心就会得到恢复,你觉得你可以不停地这样打下去。总的来说,能过关我很高兴。但这绝对不是我打过的最漂亮的一场比赛。当你打得不好但也过关时,其意义也很多。

        记者:2005年对于女子网坛来说不同于2004年,因为今年两名比利时姊妹花相继强势复出。你觉得今年女子网坛的竞争要更加激烈吗?

        沙拉波娃:当然,这就是体育的真谛。我之所以打球,就是因为竞争。我愿意同高手交手,无论输还是赢。我从失败中学到了很多。

        记者:很显然,在你的职业生涯中,你有过辉煌的胜利。你刚才说你从失败中学习。那么,在哪一两场失败的比赛中,你学到的东西最多,还有你学到了什么?

        沙拉波娃:我想其中的一场比赛应该是今年年初在澳网半决赛上对阵小威廉姆斯的那场比赛吧。当时还差一分就可以进入决赛,但却输了,这是一个巨大的失望。这是令人痛心的失败,但我精神上还是很顽强的。在之后的一周里,我在东京公开赛决赛上就击败了达文波特。我觉得我可以很快将失败的阴影抛在身后。以前我也输过比赛,输球后我耿耿于怀。我想我那样做是错的,应该加以改正。我认为,你越快改正错误、越快忘记失败,你就越能从中受益。在澳网公开赛上的失利,对我帮助很大。我认识到,我并不是常胜将军,但在输掉如此艰巨的比赛之后,我还会坚强地回到赛场。

        记者:你认为在澳网,你当时是因为一时的疏忽还是因为小威的气势最终让你输掉比赛的?

        沙拉波娃:我当时觉得我控制了整场比赛,但胜利的果实突然从我手中溜走了。这是很久以前的事情了,没有必要回过头来再来谈论它。

        记者:你认为自己现在的状态如何?有什么需要改进的吗?

        沙拉波娃:发球肯定需要改进。我想明天我会更多的练习发球。今天在比赛打到两个半小时的时候,我感觉我在比赛中的节奏感越来越好。你知道,打完第一轮后,我们只有一天的休息时间,然后你就要参加第二轮的比赛。这跟你们一天工作6小时然后下班回家的感觉完全不一样。第1轮永远都不会很轻松。在第2盘,你还必须再接再厉。

        记者:现在我们谈谈1号种子。达文波特最近几年在红土场地成绩不太好。你觉得她在法网的威胁有多大?你把她看作夺冠途上的一个威胁吗?

        沙拉波娃:我认为达文波特对于其他选手而言,永远都是一个威胁。她的击球又狠又准。在比赛中,谁都希望能发出一记Ace球直接得分,免得在场上再跑来跑去的。但达文波特打起球来,几乎无人能够抵挡。

        记者:你说过希望有朝一日能成为世界1号选手。而达文波特最近表示,她根本不关心什么1号不1号的问题。你觉得她的态度奇怪吗?

        沙拉波娃:她有一个辉煌的网球生涯,所以在此刻,或许她只是在享受成就。我的意思是,她一直是女单1号,也赢得了很多大满贯桂冠,所以在下一次新闻发布会上,你可以告诉她可以把女单1号的位置让给我。(笑)这当然不可能。

        记者:阿加西一直是你心目中的英雄,是吗?

        沙拉波娃:是。他今天输球了吗?

        记者:是的。他受了伤,在后两盘全输了,他在比赛结束时甚至已经走不动路了。你认为,总体来讲,运动员的运动生命有多长?你认为运动员退役的最佳年龄是多少?

        沙拉波娃:这要因人而异,这真的很难说,因为这取决于你的身体条件。此外还有你参加比赛的欲望也是考虑的因素之一。我想我不会打那么长时间吧,总之这样的事,看个人的情况吧。

        Q. This was a tough match at the beginning of a very long tournament. Do you enjoy tough matches at the beginning? Is it a special game for you or does it have a special meaning playing a fellow Russian girl, one of the many Russian girls which are so dominant now?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, when I came off the court, you know, I really thought these are the sort of matches I play for because, you know, I would have loved to win 1-0. That would have been great. But, you know, when you come off the court and you feel like you were losing the whole match, and all of a sudden you pulled it out, you know, it's those moments that you feel you've trained for and you work hard for. Just lucky to get through.

        Of course, you know, playing other Russians is never easy. She's your compatriot. When you go on court, you just try to forget about my opponent, where she's from or who she is.

        Q. With the way the draw is this year, are you confident you can get past the quarters as last year and maybe even win it this year?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: I always just play it one match at a time. I don't worry about how I did last year or what I have to do this year. I just worry about my next opponent.

        Q. She was 3-1 up in the third with one point for 4-1. What did you think at that time? She kept running and running and running.

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: No, it was definitely tough. I mean, you know, when you're down a break in the third, you're just begging for mercy (laughter). But I just tried to fight it out and tried to find a way, just an opening. As the third set went on, I thought the conditions were a little lighter and the ball flew faster. I was able to hit shots that she wasn't able to run down. In the first and second set, I felt like she was running down every single ball. No matter how good my ball was, it was coming back. In the third, I felt like everything seemed lighter and I could hit the ball and I got a good advantage from it.

        Q. What does your father mean to you? Did he give you advice to win?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, my father is first and foremost my father. About advice, of course, he tells me what I need to do during the match or whatever. But, obviously, both my parents have sacrificed a lot for my career, my life. A lot of these great and bad moments, you know, we share together. Especially the good ones, they mean a lot to my family.

        Q. There are certain players which play much better in hotter temperatures. How happy are you so far with the clay court season? In Berlin the weather was not very good. Andre likes hot weather.

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, of course, I prefer when the weather is sunny and nice, nice to play in. But when the conditions are heavy and the ball doesn't go through the air as much, I think my opponents have a bigger advantage of getting the balls back, you know, bringing them back and having the points go longer and longer. That's one of the things that I need to work on. I can be impatient and I have to hit ball after ball after ball. No matter how long it takes, I have to know that I can hit an extra ball than my opponent.

        Q. With all that said, there have been players who haven't radically changed their styles for the clay, like Monica, for example, would pretty much hit out and did win this tournament. Do you think you need to play more defensively or do you think you could pretty much play your style, be more accurate and a little more offensive?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: To tell you the truth, I can't really change my game when I go on any surface. I can adjust, you know, to do little different things, but I'm not going to change my game and all of a sudden become a typical clay court player that's going to get everything back. It's not in the nature of my game. There is no point in doing it.

        I mean, of course, I realize that I have a game that's pretty powerful and pretty big. So on the clay, I don't get as much advantage as I would on faster surfaces. But I also, you know, know that as the years have been progressing, I feel that I can withstand longer matches and I can play longer points and come back and play a better point rather than last year where I felt like I was going to die.

        Q. Given that Linetskaya is probably better than her ranking, she's 18, fast, has weapons, just talk about the quality of your own game and whether or not you thought, even though you were pushed, you did play a good match?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: I don't think I played a good first set. I was letting her play her game. There's nothing on my balls. One, the conditions were heavy, yes. Another one, I didn't realize and I didn't change anything. When my balls were landing on the service line, I didn't improve anything.

        In the second set, I think I had a little more pace on my shots and whenever you feel like you're hitting a heavier ball and deeper ball, you get more confidence and you feel like you can hit it over and over again.

        Overall, I mean, I'm happy to get through the match, but I don't think -- I mean, it definitely wasn't the best match I played. When you don't play well and you get through these matches, that also means a lot.

        Q. 2005 is very different in women's tennis than 2004 because the two strong Belgian girls returned strong. Do you enjoy that this year will be much more competitive?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Of course. That's what the sport is all about. That's why I play it, is because of the competition. I love competing against top players, win or lose. I learn from my losses. And wins, you know, they're great because you know whoever you're playing is the top. That's why, you know, the championships meant so much to me because, first of all, you're playing against the best eight that are in the year, they've done amazingly, done the best in the year and you're able to beat them.

        Of course, it's going to be more difficult already in the quarterfinal you're going to play against a very tough opponent, but it's normal. That's the way the game goes. I mean, nothing's going to be easy.

        Q. Strong finish for you. Two double-faults from deuce didn't help very much.

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: No.

        Q. What happens? Does your toss get low? Are you tired at that point? Going for too much on the second serve?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, I just didn't have the timing on my serve today. I've been serving prettygood in practice. You know, whether the heavier balls today, I think in my practices the balls have been flying a little more. Today maybe in the first set I felt like I needed to go for more. Then the third set when I wanted to go for more, it was either going long or my toss was somewhere else.

        You know, it's just one of those days where you just go up to the line and you feel that you're not serving your best.

        Q. Obviously you've had some fabulous wins in your career. You mentioned you learn from your losses. If there were one or two losses that you learned the most from, what would that be and what did you learn?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: I think one of them was against Serena in Australia because it's a big disappointment to lose a match where you're one point away from being in the final of a Grand Slam. It's very disappointing. I think I just realized that, you know, it's a bad loss, but I was mentally really tough. The next week I came out and beat Lindsay in the final of Tokyo. I feel like I put that behind me really quick.

        In the past I've had matches where, you know, I lose them and I think about them too much. I think what I did wrong and what I need to improve. I think as fast as you correct your mistakes and forget about the match, you know, it helps you.

        I think in Australia, you know, it helped me a lot. I realize I'm not going to be able to win every single match, but I also can come back strong after losing such a tough match.

        Q. Do you see Australia as more of a matter of your focus going off a bit or Serena stepping up?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: I felt like I was just in control of the whole match and all of a sudden it just slipped away. I mean, it was too long ago. Really, there's no point in going back and talking about it.

        Q. Overall how happy are you with your form at the moment? Do you think there's anything you should be improving on or could improve on?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Oh, the serve for sure. I think tomorrow I'll be working on the serve a lot more, you know. Playing for two and a half hours, I was getting a better rhythm as the match went on. You know, there's not too much you can do with one day off in between your next second round. It's not like you're going to go and work six hours a day on something. First round is never easy. You just have to try to improve things in the second.

        Q. Top seed here. Lindsay hasn't really done that well in recent years on clay. Not a lot of talk about her. How dangerous do you see her? Do you see her as a threat to win the tournament?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: I think Lindsay can always be a threat. I mean, who needs to run around the court if you can hit aces all the time and hit big returns? If she's on, she's on. It's basically unstoppable just because of her power and the accuracy of her shots.

        Q. You talked about being No. 1 at one of your goals. She said recently she's not concerned about No. 1; she's sort of detached from it. If she was concerned about it, she would have come over and played the European clay court season. Do you find that attitude strange or what do you think about it?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Just great, don't play and I'll become No. 1. Thanks, Lindsay (laughter). She's had an amazing career, so I think at this point she's just enjoying herself. I mean, she's been No. 1 before and she's won Grand Slams. I think, I mean, just tell her in the next press conference to step back and give me the place (laughter). No.

        Q. Andre has been one of your heroes, correct, someone you looked up to?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yes.

        Q. He was a legend around Bollettieri. He's going through some tough physical times. A little bit of perspective on whether or not?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: Did he lose today?

        Q. He did. He got hurt and lost the last two sets. Could barely walk through it. Do you think athletes in general can stay around too long? As good as he's been, do you think there's a proper time for people to walk away from the sport?

        MARIA SHARAPOVA: It really depends on the individual. It's so hard to say. It depends on your physical condition. That has a lot to do with it. And also your desire to be out there and still compete and enjoy it at the same time, and wanting to improve every single day.

        But when you wake up and you feel like you just don't want to do it -- I mean, there's a difference between waking up and saying, "I'm really tired, I don't feel like going and playing today." There's another difference where you just wake up and you feel like you've had enough. You've had a long career, you've had a great career. At this point I can't really say that about myself (laughter). It's not that long. But it's hard. It really depends on the individual.
