    [双语新闻]阿加西:就目前而言 我会一直把网球打下去
      An Interview with Andre Agassi
        美国网坛老将、赛会7号种子阿加西最终没能如愿以偿夺得冠军。在北京时间9月12日凌晨结束的美国网球公开赛男子单打决赛中,阿加西以3-6,6-2,6-7,1-6输给了赛会1号种子、瑞士“天王”费德勒。赛后阿加西在新闻发布会上接受了记者们的采访。

        记者:很显然这并不是你所希望看到的结果。今天曾经有那么一刻,当你的形象出现在赛场实况转播大屏幕上时,观众们一度陷入了疯狂的状态。你当时头缠毛巾,然后又把它摘了下来,好像要把整个头都埋进去。观众们对你如痴如狂,这对你来说意味着什么呢?

        阿加西:在过去的20年,我走过了一个轮回。这是一段令人惊奇的发现之旅,期间我和大家由陌生到熟悉,而我也在这里开始慢慢地成长起来。在我现在这个年龄,还能得到大家如此的厚爱,这种感觉是无与伦比的,让我永生难忘。我是带着成千上万观众的欢呼和爱戴离开这里的,这些美好的记忆将伴随我一生。

        记者:今天你输给了世界排名第1的网球选手费德勒,但能够跻身今天的决赛本身以及在这之前两个星期围绕着你所发生的一切,是不是已经足以弥补输球带给你的遗憾呢?

        阿加西:的确如此。输球固然很令人失望,但首先要明白的是为什么会输。我今天输给了一个比我更棒的家伙,我的意思是我很难找到理由来否认这一点。

        费德勒是我遇见过的最棒的网球选手。和他比赛,你没有太多的选择,只能踏踏实实地打好每一个球,就像打高尔夫一样,你所要做的就是挥杆击球,然后推球入洞。如果在和他的比赛中你能够做到心想事成的话,那么你就有机会获胜,但这个要求也太高了。

        记者:你刚才是不是在说这是你所参加的最后一次公开赛,或者你的意思是:“我想谢谢你们在这20年里对我的支持”?是不是你还不清楚明年是否还会卷土重来?

        阿加西:就连1个月以后的事我都不清楚,更别提1年了。但就目前而言,我希望能够继续打下去。你知道,惟一能比前20年更好的就是第21年。

        记者:这是你打过的最棒的但是最后却输掉的比赛吗?

        阿加西:我现在还不能自我评估现在的水平,这太早了。在比赛中我曾经在发球局里以30-0领先,但对方一个反手歪打正着,球正好落在了底线上。之后我也有一个球打在了球网上,落在了对方场地,让我得分。但这些对他没有什么影响。即使比分落后,他也能很快进入状态并成功破发。要是对手换成别人,在这种情况下我一定会认为自己要赢了。

        记者:费德勒是惟一一个每球都给你很大压力的选手吗?

        阿加西:是的。这么多年来,我也和很多其他选手交过手,你总能找到解决问题的办法。但和费德勒比赛,无论你做哪些改变,他总是有办法找到答案。他看上去随时都能“扣动扳机”,置对手于死地。

        总的来说,他的打法很特别,我想这是一种我以前从没见过的打法。

        记者:在今天比赛的第3盘,你一度以3-2领先。如果你当时能坚持下去,谁知道结果会怎样呢。

        阿加西:我喜欢你思维的方式(笑)。当然,你必须努力去做才能实现你的假设。我现在谈的是费德勒在所有他参加的大型比赛中所表现出来的高水平和天赋。这太让人疯狂了。他赢了多少? 24场决赛,是吗?可能是23场。我要好好想想,除了他以外,还有谁做到过这一点。

        记者:你认为费德勒在他最辉煌的时候已经超过桑普拉斯了吗?他是不是有一天能够打破桑普拉斯所保持的记录?

        阿加西:桑普拉斯是非常了不起的选手,这毫无问题。但比赛中他也有破绽可以被利用,但费德勒却没有明显的破绽。

        我认为费德勒是我所遇到过的最棒的选手。但同时我也认为,要想赢得那么多的大满贯赛事冠军头衔,还需要很多很多因素,包括一点点的运气,还有不受伤等等。

        记者:费德勒在进入决赛之前只输了两局,分别是在对阵休伊特和基弗时输掉的。这两局都进入了“抢7”。对阵这两名选手,费德勒都打出了6-2的比分。但在决赛结束之后他说,这是他在本届美网中打得最好的一场。我知道在比赛中你没有什么机会翻盘,但回首整场比赛,你也曾经打了对方一个6-2,并曾经一度将对手拖入“抢7”,考虑到对手的水平,可不可以说这也是一个了不起的成绩呢?

        阿加西:和他比赛很富挑战性。在我交过手的选手中,他是惟一一名能让我在发球局里仅仅1-0领先时就说“嗯,还不错”的选手(大笑)。

        我可不是在开玩笑,我是在用另一种方式告诉你,他可以在任何情况下置你于死地。比方说,你发球,甚至你还以30-0领先,这时对手得了1分,比分变成30-15,这时你就有了和其他选手比赛所没有的那种压力。所以在比赛中,每一球都有紧迫感,这是一种令人难以置信的挑战。

        在今天的比赛中,我做的还不够好。虽然之前我曾经打了3场打满5盘的比赛,但这并不能直接帮助我今天取得胜利。问题是,人们必须随时随地的努力去超越自己的水平。

        记者: 你是带着怎样的心情进入本届美网决赛的?是不是同以往有些不同?

        阿加西:是的,有一种劫后余生的感觉。星期六我刚刚打满了5盘进入决赛,接着在不到24小时里就要做好再打5盘的准备。所以在内心深处我必须精打细算,做好迎接大赛的准备。但从内心而言,我是期待着这样一场比赛的。今天第4盘的比赛证明了对手的实力,也告诉人们在和费德勒比赛的时候,你绝不能让他取得领先。对付所有的高手,你都不能让他们领先。

        记者:从感情上讲,今年美网打到这个份上是不是让你感到比94和99年两届美网夺冠还要更让你满意?

        阿加西:我现在正处在我生命和职业生涯的一个全新阶段。在这一特别的时刻,我享受到了网球比赛以及观众的支持所能带给我的所有快乐。现在我可以享受到的东西很多,还没有时间为下一场比赛的输赢而烦恼。

        为了今天,我一直兢兢业业,能享受到比赛带来的快乐让我感觉真好。为了能有今天这样的感觉,我做了我所能做的一切,为此我的感觉好极了。

        记者:费德勒在今年的大满贯赛事中曾经被打败过。萨芬在澳网淘汰了他,后来还有纳达尔在法网击败过他。你怎么看待他的这两场失利?

        阿加西:我看什么?他赢了温网。

        记者:他是可以被打败的。这是时间的问题还是选手的问题?

        阿加西:其实任何人都是可以被打败的。他今年赢了多少场比赛?他是不是输了3次?

        记者:是的3次,两次是在大满贯赛事。

        阿加西:他输了3次,但他或许能赢70次。是的,他当然是可以被打败的(笑)。

        我的意思是,体育意味着你必须亲自参与。你不可能在家里打打电话,或者像有些人那样在星期天弄个烧烤什么的就会有结果。你必须亲自露面,必须亲身参与,而这就是费德勒所做的。

        所以,谁也不会因为他具有天赋、或者因为他为此付出了艰苦的努力就理所应当地向他致敬,他也不会因此在踏上赛场的那一刻就理所应当地认为自己是夺冠大热门,希望事事顺利。他只是一场比赛接一场比赛的去参加。

        所以费德勒的成功是多种因素的结合,他理应获得这些。

        记者:有朝一日,当你决定挂拍离开球场的时候,不论这样的决定是在半年以后还是在5年以后做出,你认为究竟是哪些因素会促使你做出这样的决定呢?是觉得网球再也没有意思,还是你的身体已经吃不消,抑或是相比起网球,你的家人更需要你?究竟是什么呢?

        阿加西:如果你说的那些我都感觉到了,同时也觉得网球比赛不再好玩,那可真不是一件什么好事。我感觉,如果做出那样的选择的话,家庭因素应该是很大的一块,体能也是其中之一。这些因素我不能一一都说出来,我所知道的是,当我知道我的决定的时候,你们也会知道。我所能说的也就是这些。

        记者:赛后你和夫人说了些什么?

        阿加西:我们还什么也没来得及说呢。

        Q. Obviously, this isn't the result you wanted. There was a moment out there when you were up on the Jumbotron, crowd was going crazy, you had your towel over your head, then you lifted it up as if to take it all in. Talk about the outpouring of emotion from the crowd out there, what that meant to you.

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, over the last 20 years I've come full circle, you know. It's been an amazing journey and discovery of each other as I've grown up out here. You know, to be here at an age where I can take in that sort of love and be at an age where I can embrace it is a tremendous feeling. I'll never forget this.

        It can't take away from me ever what I'm leaving here with, and that's the memory of thousands of people pulling for me and showing appreciation for something that I care dearly about.

        Q. Does the joy of being out there today and what's happened these past couple weeks outweigh the sting of losing to the world's best player today?

        ANDRE AGASSI: It does, yes. It does. It's disappointing to lose, but the first thing you have to assess is why did you lose and, you know, I just lot to a guy that's better. I mean, there's only so long you can deny it.

        But, you know, he's the best I've ever played against. There's nowhere to go. You know, there's nothing to do except hit fairways, hit greens and make putts. I mean, every shot has that sort of urgency on it. And if you do what you're supposed to do, you feel like it gives you a chance to win the point. That's just too good.

        Q. Andre, are you saying you're leaving, meaning this is your last Open, or do you just say ?? you took the microphone and said, "I just want to thank you guys for the last 20 years." Is that because you're unsure whether you'll be back here next year or not?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, I'm unsure about what I'm going to do in a month, let alone a year from now. But as of now, my intention is to keep working and keep doing what it is I do. You know, only thing better than the last 20 years will be the last 21 years.

        Q. Was that the best you've ever played and lost?

        ANDRE AGASSI: I don't know. I can't assess my standard right now, it's a little too soon. I had 4?2 ?? I had a set apiece, 4?2, 30?Love serving, he had an inside?out backhand miss?hit that found the line. Then I hit a net cord to set up. That's the thing, you know, it doesn't take much with him. He can break a match open, or he can get back into it right away.

        But I would say that normally if I play that way against anybody, I would be favoring myself.

        Q. Is he the only guy who puts that much pressure on you where every shot is at a premium?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yes. I mean, you know, there's other guys you play, I've played a lot of them, I mean, so many years, there's a safety zone, there's a place to get to, there's something to focus on, there's a way, you know. Anything you try to do, he potentially has an answer for and it's just a function of when he starts pulling the triggers necessary to get you to change to that decision.

        But, yeah, he plays the game in a very special way. I don't think ?? I haven't seen it before.

        Q. That being said, though, you were in control of this match when you had broken him at 3?2 in that third set. Had you been able to maybe hold, who knows what would have happened.

        ANDRE AGASSI: I like the way you think (laughter). Make sure you write that tomorrow. I was that close...

        Yeah, no, no listen, you still got to earn it, you still got to do it. I'm just speaking of the standard and the options and the talent and the execution that he shows in all the biggest matches. It's crazy. What has he won, 24 straight finals, something like that?

        Q. You said you thought he was the greatest you've ever played against. Did you think that before tonight or was there something about tonight specifically that pushed you over the edge of thinking that?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, that's a great question. This is playing him in the finals of a Slam, you know. I've seen a lot of people play special matches arbitrarily, you know, just out of nowhere, just played a great match. He certainly has done that a number of times against me.

        But when you play somebody in the finals of a Slam, you can assess it pretty effectively. And I've never seen that.

        Q. Do you think Roger is even better than Sampras at his best, and he could maybe break one day the record of Sampras?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Pete was great. I mean, no question. But there was a place to get to with Pete, you knew what you had to do. If you do it, it could be on your terms. There's no such place like that with Roger.

        I think he's the best I've played against. But I also think the accomplishment of winning that many Slams requires a number of things, including a little bit of luck to make sure you're healthy, nothing goes wrong.

        Q. He only lost two sets going into the match. Those two were both lost ? one to Lleyton, one to Kiefer ? in tiebreaks. He took them 6?2. He said he played better in this match than the whole tournament. I know you haven't had much of a chance to reflect on it, but can you look back and say that's a hell of an accomplishment, to take him 6?2 and take him to a tiebreak, considering the level he's playing at?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, it's a challenge to, you know ?? he's the only guy I've ever played against where you hold serve to go 1?0 and you're thinking, "All right, good" (laughter).

        And I'm not just making fun of it, I'm literally telling you the way it is. He can hurt you at any point. You're serving 30?Love, he wins the point. It's 30?15, the pressure you feel at 30?15 is different than anybody else.

        So there's a sense of urgency on every point, on every shot. You know, it's an incredible challenge.

        You know, I certainly didn't have enough today. I know, you know, three five?setters doesn't help. But it's still a standard out there that you got to exceed yourself all the time.

        Q. Did you feel he was a little bit erratic off the backhand at times during the match? You seemed to be exploiting that.

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, I mean, it was a bit breezy. When I got on top of him, I could get to that. I certainly like my backhand to his backhand, or I certainly like that as a better option than his forehand.

        But, you know, with that being said, he hit an inside?out winner at 30?Love, 4?2 in the third set that found the line. He hit a few up the line. He hits that short chip, moves you forward, moves you back. He uses your pace against you. If you take pace off, so that he can't use your pace, he can step around and hurt you with the forehand. Just the amount of options he has to get around any particular stage of the match where maybe something's out of sync is ?? seems to be endless.

        His success out there is just a mere reflection of all the things that he can do.

        Q. Did you ever think that you'd see a player like him who moves so well, whose mental game is so well, serves so well, it seems like he hits every ball clean, every ball seems to hit the line. You said with Sampras, there was a place where you could be safe. With Roger, it seems like he's off balance and still hitting crosscourt winners and shots with a lot of pace on them.

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, I mean, the only thing I could conceive more difficult than that is everything he does and make him 6'5".

        He's, you know ?? he does things that others just can't do.

        Q. It seemed like going to the tiebreaker you were getting into his backhand with the kick serve, especially into the ad court. Fourth point of it he finally hits the big backhand down the line. Return of serve winner. After that, two unforced for you. He flew to the title. Did it surprise you, and was that more or less the turnaround right there?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, he always elevates, you know, in tiebreakers. You'll always see that when he plays, he takes his chances.

        But I was using the kick serve effectively against the wind ?? I mean, sorry, with the wind. In that particular stage, I was serving once in the tiebreak I was against the wind, and it was a second serve.

        You know, that's my point, I was safe for a long time out there just hitting a dumpy second serve to the backhand and getting into the point. Then at any point he can decide, "Well, I want to make you worry about that." He had the breeze on his back. He just stayed through that ball and hit it up the line. It was pretty much by me.

        You know, and then the next couple points, because he has ?? you know he's going to step up, you have that little extra pressure to do a little bit more with the ball, to push it through the wind, and to get it deep because you don't want to leave anything hanging against him on either wing. And, you know, you make a couple errors because you're trying to play too good. And then just for good measure he did it at 6?1 in the tiebreaker.

        So anything that you're trying to execute out there only lasts for a period of time till he makes the adjustment. Then you have to change it. All the while, everything you're planning on doing, you have to do well and you have to do it start to finish. So that's, you know ?? you can only say it so many ways. You know, that's too good.

        Q. Is it hopeless, or do you believe he's a challenge that eventually can be figured out?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, something needs to be off one way or another. You need to play the craziest tennis you've ever played or he needs to be doing something off because, you know, you have to do it for such a long period of time. And while I believe I can do that, you always got to look at it for what it is and you say, "This guy's won that many finals for a reason." I mean, that stat alone is pretty crazy. I mean, you're talking about the best that are left in the tournament and he's winning that many times in a row, you know...

        It is what it is but you do step on the court feeling like you have to play a perfect match. He has to execute. I mean, he has to do what he does. But if he does, you have to play a perfect match.

        Q. Emotionally, is this run more satisfying than '94, '99 here?

        ANDRE AGASSI: I'm at such a different place in my life and career now, so at this particular time I can enjoy this as much as I've enjoyed anything on the tennis court with the support and the appreciation of the fans and the classic, you know, night match against James. There's a lot that I can enjoy now that before you're too busy worrying about winning, you know.

        You know, I've worked long and hard to be in a place where I can come out here and enjoy a sport that's been so good to me. And to be able to actually put that into a fact is a great feeling. I stepped out there and I looked forward to it and I did everything I could, and I do feel good about that.

        Q. He's been beaten in Grand Slams this year. Safin got him in Australia. Nadal. How do you see that in perspective?

        ANDRE AGASSI: How do I see what? He won Wimbledon.

        Q. He's beatable. Is it a matter of time, or is it a matter of player?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, everybody's beatable, I mean, on any given day. How many matches ?? what's his record this year? He's lost three times?

        Q. Three times, two Grand Slams.

        ANDRE AGASSI: He's lost three times. He's probably won 70? Yeah, he's definitely beatable (laughter). I just don't like those odds (laughter).

        But, I mean, in sports you have to execute, you know. You can't phone in the result or else everybody could have just stayed home and barbecued this Sunday, you know. You can't phone in the result. You have to show up and you have to do it and that's what he has to do.

        So you can't just say he's full of talent, you have to give him his respect for hard work and discipline and commitment and the mindset that it takes to step on the court being the favorite every time, to step in the finals hoping today's not the day that something goes wrong, like you're talking about. And he does it over and over again.

        So there are a lot of things coming together for him, and deservingly so.

        Q. I'm not saying I don't want you to continue to play. But can you imagine a better moment here at the US Open, you lost in the final against the No. 1 in the world?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, beating the No. 1 is better (laughter).

        Q. When you make that decision to put the racquet on the wall and walk away, whether it's six months from now, five years from now, whatever, what do you think will go into that for you? What will be the factors? If it's not fun anymore, that your body doesn't hold up, your family needs you more? What do you think will go into that decision?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, I mean, based on all those points would be a factor if I felt those things, if I felt like it wasn't fun, that's not good. If I felt like, you know, it was compromising my family too much, that would be a factor. If I felt like physically I just couldn't come out here with the hope of making the best play the best, that would be a factor.

        I don't know all the pieces that will be a part of it. I don't know what will be most sort of pronounced. But I do know that, you know, when I know, you'll know. That's, I mean, that's the most I can say.

        Q. Did you speak with your wife after the match? What do you say?

        ANDRE AGASSI: We didn't have time to chat yet.
