    [双语新闻]小威廉姆斯爆冷出局 新闻发布会泪流满面
      Serena Williams Interview

        在温网比赛的第6日,赛会女子单打4号种子、两届温网冠军得主的美国“黑珍珠”塞雷纳·威廉姆斯在第3轮的比赛中,以3-6、6-7(4-7)不敌来自美国罗德岛的30岁老将克雷巴斯。此前,小威的姐姐大威廉姆斯在先期进行的比赛中击败了斯洛伐克美少女汉图楚瓦,率先进入了女子单打的16强。然而小威的意外出局,让这场姐妹“德比”顿时化为乌有。在赛后的新闻发布会上,小威廉姆斯接受了记者的采访。

        记者:比赛结束了,你有什么感受?

        小威:糟透了。

        记者:你能不能再深入地讲一讲?

        小威:不能。

        记者:你是怎么看待今天这场比赛的?

        小威:这我没法说。

        记者:这好像不是你一贯的作风。你通常是出口成章的。

        小威:我的意思是,我现在能想到的词都是些令人恶心的脏话。这些话在这个场合显然并不合适。

        记者:可不可以说你今天并不在最佳状态?我的意思是你不仅身体有伤,同时比赛时的状态也不太好,好像身体都生了锈。

        小威:我猜我浑身上下都生了锈。我今天打得太糟糕了。我是说,以前我比赛的时候,如果第一局打得不好的话,那么在第二或者第三盘我肯定会有比较好的发挥。但是今天我简直就是一无是处。

        记者:今天你在场上的对手克雷巴斯,比起你前两轮的对手,绝对是一名“老手”。她懂得如何打多拍控制球。

        小威:是啊,今天我总是不停地犯错。

        记者:你不仅仅是今天犯错,你来温网的这一个星期或许就是一个错误,或者你觉得来温网是值得的?

        小威:说实话,我觉得还是呆在家里或许更好一些。真的。

        记者:你有没有觉得自己在温网不仅球打得有些退步,同时在比赛的细节方面也大不如从前了呢?

        小威:我没什么退步的。

        记者:既然你来温网之前有伤在身,而且也没参加什么比赛,那么你为什么还为今天的出局而这么痛苦呢?

        小威:因为今天这场比赛我本不应该输的。我只是打得不太好。

        记者:你觉得你的对手打得怎么样?

      小威:我觉得她只是把球一个一个打回来而已,别的她什么也没做,她也不需要做什么。今天她太露脸了,我甚至在第一盘的发球局里也赢不了球。这样,我也就一泻千里了。

        记者:你以前也有过惨痛的失败,但通常来讲你绝不会为此而热泪盈眶的。你是不是特别看重温网,或者你这么激动有什么别的原因?

        小威:嗯,现在我还不想回答你的这个问题。

        记者:比赛时是不是球场灯光暗淡,很难看清来球?

        小威:等一下,对不起……(抽泣)。确实很难,我的意思是,还不太坏,我还能看得见球。

        记者:比赛之前的长时间等待,以及此后,由于中央球场比赛没有结束而不得不更换场地到2号球场,所有这些是不是都更让你心烦?

        小威:请给我一张纸巾,我的眼睛有些湿。我想,谢谢,这好像是一块手帕。我想,你说的那些不是原因,因为对手和我一样在等待。我的意思是,我们两人都处在同一个环境中,所以那不是我输球的原因,它们之间毫无关系。

        记者:是网球之外的什么事情让你现在感到如此难受,还是你对输掉了比赛本身感到心烦意乱?

        小威:我本来是一个非常输得起的人,但现在不再是了。

        记者:你现在感到非常的沮丧,是不是因为在比赛中你确实拼得很凶,特别是在第二盘,靠着顽强的拚劲,你甚至一度将岌岌可危的比分拉回到平局决胜,当时看起来你完全有可能将比赛的形势逆转。

        小威:我讨厌浪费时间,上个星期我训练的非常刻苦,但可能我应该再多练一个星期才行。我已经习惯了在这种比赛中获胜。当我在比赛中不能像许多年前那样战胜对手的时候,感觉确实很不好。比赛就好像一场战斗。

        记者:现在世界排名前10名选手之间进行的比赛,争夺都异常激烈。在当今网坛有很多好手,比如俄罗斯军团、比利时选手等等。

        小威:我赞同你的观点。我的确认为我应该比从前更加刻苦地训练。我一直都不是特别注重训练,我考虑更多的是比赛。我喜欢少练习而多打比赛,但从现在起我必须要加强一下赛前练习了。

        记者:下一轮你的姐姐还将面对同一个对手。你觉得她在本届温网的机会有多大?

        小威:我觉得姐姐在本届温网打得不错。我认为她能够,我并不是要贬低我今天的对手或者什么,我是说大威应该能够赢得下一轮比赛,并一路前进。

        记者:大威的状态总是起伏不定。有时打得非常好,有时又完全不是那么回事。你觉得你姐姐现在达到夺冠的水平了吗?

        小威:我宁愿相信她有这个实力。我想她也应该是这样认为的。

        记者:这场比赛将在下周一进行。你会去看吗?人们本来是期待你能和你的姐姐在这场比赛中一争高下的。

        小威:我不看,我的意思是,如果我还在这里,我就去现场观看这场比赛,否则我是不会看电视转播的,因为那样我会很紧张的。

        记者:那么你会留下来看这场比赛吗?或者你自己也不知道?

        小威:是的,现在我也不知道我会不会留下来。

        记者:你的左腿,或者你的脚踝伤势影响你的行动吗?

        小威:不,一点也不。

        记者: 你会卷土重来吗?我们是不是会在美国网球公开赛上看见一个生龙活虎的小威廉姆斯?

        小威:对不起,我要打一个喷嚏。当然,我会的。我肯定……对不起,我还要打喷嚏,没完没了。我当然希望在美国公开赛时,我的状态要好得多。我一定会不断练习,直到美网开赛。到时我一定会做好充分准备的。

        记者:请你总结一下本届温网之行。没能进入温网第二周,你有多失望?

        小威:这是一种很奇怪的感觉。我还不太习惯于这么早就出局。这好像是我很长时间以来的第一次。我记得上一次我在第三轮出局好像是在1998年。

        记者:你指的是大满贯赛事?

        小威:对。

        记者:在温网开赛之初,你曾经说过,我的意思是,当时你因伤仅仅进行了很短时间的准备,但你说你对温网充满了信心。在遭受到今天失败的打击后,回过头来看看,是不是觉得当时自己的那种信心是一种误会呢?毕竟你有伤在身,准备的时间又这么短。

        小威:我完全不这么认为。我赛前的训练相当不错。只是我今天并没有打出平常的水平。通常而言,即使我打得不好的时候,也要比今天的表现要好。所以失利并不意味着我过于自信了,只是今天我不太走运罢了。

        Q. How are you feeling after that?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Horrible.

         Q. Could you elaborate for us?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: No.

        Q. Can you tell us what you thought about your game today?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I can't use those words.

        Q. It's not like you to not be able to ?? you're very articulate normally.

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Well, the words that I can only use are all foul. It wouldn't be proper for me to use those words.

        Q. Would it be fair to say that you were not in the highest fitness when you came here, not just in terms of injury, but in terms of match play, and came out and had three very rough outings with some rust on you that you never really got rid of?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I guess I had a lot of rust. I just didn't play well today. I mean, the other days I kind of played through it and the second and third set I got better. But today I just ?? I didn't do anything right.

        Q. This is a more veteran player today than the first two players you played. She knows how to keep the ball in play and make you hit one more shot.

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah, and I just kept making errors, so...

        Q. Overall, not just this match, but the week, did you make a mistake coming here, or do you think it's been worth it?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I think I was better off staying home, to be honest. For sure.

        Q. Are you concerned that you've set back, apart from not doing as well as you would want to do here, are you concerned you set back your cause here and aggravating niggles that you've had?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: No, I didn't set back anything physically.

        Q. Given that you did come in here without much match play and that you were hurt, why the extreme disappointment right now?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Because I shouldn't have lost this match. I didn't play a good match enough today.

        Q. What do you think your opponent did well?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I think she just got balls back. She didn't do anything ?? she didn't have to do anything exceptionally well today. She just pretty much had to show up and I just ?? I couldn't win a service game in the first set. Then it was just downhill.

        Q. You've had tough losses before and it's not that common for you to come in tearful. Were you putting a lot on this tournament or why so much emotion?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Oh, uhm... I don't want to answer that right now.

        Q. How difficult was it out there with the fading light and being able to see the ball?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Hold on. Give me a second (tearing up). It was... excuse me. It was pretty difficult. I mean, it wasn't that bad, though. I could kind of see the ball.

        Q. Did all the hanging around today and the late change of court, did that help at all? Did that add to the frustration of the day?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I need a tissue because my eyes are watering. I think that, uhm... thank you. It's a hankie. I think that didn't have a factor because she had to wait around as well. So, I mean, we kind of were both in the same situation, so it wasn't like that was why I lost or something. It had nothing to do with it.

        Q. Is there something going on outside of tennis that's upsetting you, or is it just that you're upset about losing the match?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Oh, no, not really. I just don't ?? I've never been one to lose well, I should say. But, not anymore, no.

        Q. Is part of being upset because you actually did fight hard, you fought real hard in that second set, you clawed yourself back into the tiebreak and it looked like you were on the verge of turning it back around?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Uhm, no. I think it's just ?? I hate to waste time, and I worked pretty hard the last week or so, but I guess you got to work more than a week, you know. But I just think that I'm just used to winning these kind of matches and I just ?? it's hard when you go out there and you can't make a shot and you've been making them for years. It's like, it's a battle.

        Q. The competition out there right now is so intense in the Top 10. Do you think that you need to go back...

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I didn't hear the first part of your question.

        Q. The competition is so intense. We're not talking about a Jill Craybas, we're talking about Russians, Belgians, a lot of good players.

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I definite think so. I definitely think it's important for me to practice harder than what I have been. I've never been big on practicing. I've kind of just been all about playing. I love getting out there and playing matches, so I think I'm going to have to do a little more practicing.

        Q. Do you think other players are outworking you right now in training sessions?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I don't know. I know that I work really hard, and I know I put in the time that's necessary. But I think there's some places that I can work harder at.

        Q. Obviously, your sister is going to play the same opponent. Just wondering what you think Venus' chances are in this tournament and also to really sort of make a statement again at a major?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I think Venus is playing well here. I think she's going to, obviously ?? I'm not trying to be negative on my opponent or anything, but I think Venus will pretty much win the next round and go from there.

        Q. Her form has been, you know, sort of up and down. She's played some great patches and then not?so?great patches. Do you think she's playing at a level to go far and win this title?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I'd like to believe that she is. I think maybe she's feeling her way through.

        Q. How hard will it be for you to watch? Will you watch her play on Monday? That was a match everyone was sort of gearing up for you two to play each other.

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah, I don't ?? I mean, if I'm here, I'll watch. If not, I don't watch her on TV. I get too nervous.

        Q. Do you plan to stay and watch? You don't know yet?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah, I don't know yet. I just ?? I don't know yet.

        Q. Did your left leg or ankle affect your mobility?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: No, it didn't at all. I just ?? no, not at all. No.

        Q. Do you think you'll fight back and by the time of the US Open we'll see a tiger out there?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Sorry... I thought I had to sneeze. But, yeah, for sure. I definitely... sorry. Okay. I feel I have to sneeze and it keeps going away and coming back. I definitely feel by US Open I'll be in hopefully a lot better shape. Obviously, I'll be practicing until then. I definitely think I'll be ready for that.  

        Q. Do you think you'll practice hard before Palo Alto or take a lot of time off and start regrouping at that point?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: No, I definitely will be practicing before then as well. I mean, as soon as tomorrow comes, I think I should be on the court. Not just on the court, but just working just out in general.

        Q. I know it's pretty recent after the loss today, but does this kind of loss make you reflect on your mix of both tennis and off?court things and how you balance all those?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: No, not yet.

        Q. Given how well you've played at this tournament in particular, how bizarre is it for you not to make the second week?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Hmm... it's really strange for me. I'm not used to going out so early in general. This is like a first for me in for ever... long time. Like, I don't know, last time I lost in the third round I think was 1998 so, that I can remember.

        Q. At a Slam, you mean?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: What?

        Q. Of a Slam, you mean?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah.

        Q. Do you think you needed this to just kind of ??

        SERENA WILLIAMS: No. No, no, no. Not at all.

        Q. At the start of the tournament you said, I mean, you went through your injuries that you had and the really short preparation, but you still expressed confidence that now that you're here, that you could compete and that you'd ?? that you had a shot. Do you think, looking back now, that was a misplaced confidence, to think you could come here and think you could win here after such interrupted preparation?

        SERENA WILLIAMS: I don't think so at all. I have been having great practices. It's just I was really off today and I didn't play the way I normally can play. Even if I'm playing bad, I normally play better than this. So that wasn't the case of being filled with aplomb or anything. I just think today was a bad day for me.
