    [双语新闻]非受迫性失误过多 大威廉姆斯无缘澳网第二轮
      An Interview with Venus Williams
        赛会10号种子、美国选手大威廉姆斯在澳网女子单打首轮比赛中爆冷以总比分1:2不敌保加利亚选手皮洛科娃,无缘澳网第二轮。在赛后举行的新闻发布会上,打出近几年大满贯赛事最差成绩的大威,面对首轮出局的现实,只能表示运气欠佳。

        记者:请谈谈你现在的感受。

        大威:很显然,我非常失望。在比赛中,好像有什么东西让我完全不能集中起精神,我甚至都不知道到底发生了什么。虽然我对比赛结果很失望,但总的来说,我感觉最近的状态还是不错的,只是在本场比赛中这种良好的状态突然消失了。好在这是一年的开始,是我今年的第一场大赛,来日方长。在今后的比赛中,我一定会取得很多胜利的。

        记者:在伊斯坦布尔时,你曾经和皮洛科娃交过手。你对她今天的球路感到吃惊吗?

        大威:她在伊斯坦布尔打得不错,今天她发挥得也很好。她打得确实不错,甚至发挥得比上次还要好一些。我在今天的比赛中非受迫性失误太多,球总是出界,这种失误怎么也纠正不过来。很显然,对手从我的“施舍”中受益不浅。你知道,如果我在比赛中的失误能够减少3到10次的话,那么本场比赛的结局将完全不同。皮洛科娃是一名非常不错的选手,她“笑到了最后”。

        记者:第一盘获胜后你到底是怎么了?

        大威:我说过了,我突然失去了状态,感觉当时我可以打得再积极一些。对手当时打得要更好一些,而我的回球总是出界。这种事在比赛中经常发生。

        记者:在你的印象中,你还有没有比这次成绩更差的大满贯参赛记录?

        大威:在我的记忆中,好像哪一次都打得比这次好,包括以前在澳网的比赛。今天我很失望,但正如我所说过的那样,总的来看,我在第一盘打得很好。来墨尔本参加澳网之前我也一直打得不错。可是体育就是体育,它的精髓就是在比赛还没有完全结束之前,你就不能说结局已定。可惜我今天并没有从这种精髓中受益,但在以往的比赛中我已经多次从中受益,我也盼望着能在今后的大赛中继续从中受益。

        记者:在第三盘5:3占先发球时,你当时心里怎么想的?结果又发生了什么?

        大威:我告诫自己不要再将球打出界。那时我总是犯同样的错误,改都改不过来。我不知道后来到底怎么了,反正是输了。

        记者:自去年9月份以来,你就没怎么打过球,这同你今天输球有关系吗?

        大威:嗯,不完全是这样的。即使我当时一直打比赛,中间我也要找时间休息,所以我不认为这是我今天输球的原因。

        记者:你是本届澳网女子单打的10号种子,而你的妹妹小威是13号种子。考虑到你们通常的排名都非常靠前,这次的排名,同以往相比是不是让你们感到有很大不同?

        大威:这表明我们还必须多参加一些比赛。我的意思是,去年我大概参加了12次大赛,而小威大概是10次。而排名在我们之前的那些选手他们都至少打了18到20场比赛。所以,我们必须尽可能地防止伤病,坚持下去,这就是我们今后的计划

        记者:如果你的妹妹在比赛中赢了,你是准备在这里多呆些日子为她加油呢,还是直接回家?

        大威:我当然希望她赢,而且还会尽力去为她助威。

        记者:你会一直呆下去吗?

        大威:这我可不知道。

        记者:今年他们在比赛中采用了一种新球,你感觉在适应这种新球方面有什么问题吗?

        大威:没有,这种球对我没有影响。对我来说,这些球都不错,都挺好打的。我觉得新球挺好的。

        记者:同你年轻时相比,你现在的训练和备战是不是感觉更苦一些?是这样吗?

        大威:不,不是这样的。备战澳网总是很困难,因为时间通常都很紧,我好像从来也没有在这里达到过自己状态的顶峰。我的状态一般来说在每年3月的时候比较好。所以我真希望澳网是在3月开打,那会对我更适合一些。

        记者:你怎么看对手在场上的能力?

        大威:她是一名非常好的选手。不过,在今天的比赛中我一共有大约70个非受迫性失误,我的意思是说,如果不是我自己“脚底下瓣蒜”的话,今天比赛的胜者很有可能就是我。

        记者:今天你父亲也到场看球了。以前他的到来对你总是有所帮助,而今天是不是他的到来反而让事情变得更糟了呢?

        大威:我喜欢父亲到场看我打球,我真的喜欢。但就平常而言,我一天到晚都在训练、然后接受指导,每天如此,而今天只是这些普通日子中的一天,所以输不输球同父亲和其他人没关系。

        记者:你又是上学、又是课外活动,你不觉负担太重了吗?

        大威:我也不想给自己增添太大的压力,但我的天性就是这样,除非我把自己要干的事情干完了,否则我就根本快活不起来。我所需要干的事情除了网球以外,还有场外的其他一些事情。今年这些场外的事情就全都可以结束了,感觉真好。

        记者:你的意思是?

        大威:今年我就完成学业了。

        记者:你的意思是说你还一直在上学?我以前真的没有意识到这一点。是时装学校的课程吗?

        大威:是的。

        记者:今天比赛的结果是不是意味着,在当今女子网球单打比赛中,特别是在大满贯赛事的头一个星期里,没有哪一个选手可以想当然地过关晋级?

        大威:我觉得它告诉人们,你不能在比赛中犯了70个非受迫性失误后还想着要赢比赛,道理就是这么简单。

        记者:我们凭什么相信你今后还会恢复到从前的水平呢?

        大威:你或者其他在这里的人相信与否,我并不在乎,因为我就是我。你愿意相信什么,随你好了。人们想说什么就说什么,我根本挡不住。我不知道你是不是其中的一个,但随你去猜、去想吧,我不在乎。

        Q. Can you talk about your feelings at the moment?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Well, I'm very disappointed, obviously. I just seemed to get to a point there, I just couldn't pull my game together. Just I don't know what happened. I don't know.

        So I'm really disappointed, but I feel like in general, I was in good form. I just somehow fell off my form. But it's the beginning of the year, and I feel like I still have a lot of success ahead of me. It's just my first event.

        Q. You played this kid in Istanbul, I believe. Were you surprised by the way she played today?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: She played well in Istanbul and she played very well today. She really did. Obviously, managed to play a little bit better. Actually, I mean, I had so many unforced errors, I just was struggling to keep the ball in today. Just couldn't get it right. Obviously, she benefitted from my largesse.

        You know, if I had just a third less errors or ten less errors, I think this match is a different story. Obviously she's a very good player and, you know, she stuck in there.

        Q. What happened after the first set?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Like I said, I lost my form and I just ?? I feel like I could have been a little more positive. But she played better. I just started hitting the ball out, out, out. I just I don't know. It just happens sometimes.

        Q. Is that as poorly as you've played in a Slam that you can remember?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Uhm, yeah, I remember playing better in different Slams. In this Slam, too. But obviously I'm disappointed for today. But just like I said, in general, I was playing well in the first set. I was playing well coming into this match. That's sport for you. You know, it's not just one set, it's not over till it's over. That's one of the best parts about sports. I didn't benefit from that today, but I've benefitted from that fact so many times. Looking forward to benefitting from that, too. But, obviously, I'll just get ready for my next event.

        Q. Serving for the win at 5?3, what did you tell yourself you had to do then, then what happened?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: I just tried to tell myself to stop missing. I could not keep it in. I just was struggling so bad at that point. Just I don't know. I just lost it. I just told myself to get it in, pretty much.

        Q. Have you got any idea how you've gone through dominating the game for so long to losing in the first round of a Slam?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Well, it happens to the best of us.

        Q. Do you think your inactivity, not having played since September, had something to do with this?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Uhm, not really because even if I had of played, I would have still had that little time off. No, I don't think so.

        Q. You came to Melbourne seeded 10th. Serena is seeded 13th. Did that feel a lot different given where you guys have been in terms of the top of the pecking order?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Yeah, we just have to try to play more. I mean, last year I played like 12 events, and I think Serena played 10. It's a little tough when the next girl ahead of you is playing like 18, 20.

        We'll just try to stay healthy and stick in there. That's the plan.

        Q. What happens if Serena wins, will you hang around for a while to watch her, or will you head home?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Obviously, I want her to win so I'll do my best to support her.

        Q. Are you going to stay around the rest of the tournament?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: I don't know.

        Q. They're using a different ball at the championship this year. Does the ball have any factor in getting used to?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: No, the ball didn't have any factor. I didn't ?? you know, to me, they all play well, so it was all good.

        Q. How much more difficult is it for you to practice and prepare now than when you were younger? Is it more hard?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: No, no. This tournament's always a little tricky to get ready for because there's less time usually, and it seems I never really hit my ?? unfortunately, I haven't got quite right on hitting my peak here. I usually do a lot better in March. I wish this tournament was in March. That would suit me really well.

        But I just feel really positive. I just feel like I just didn't get it right. I couldn't get it right today. But in general I am playing really well. It's just like, "Wow, it was the wrong time to hit wrong." So it is what it is.

        Q. Where do you read her court coverage in terms of her ability?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: I think she's really ?? like I said, I think she's a very good player. She's a very good player. But also I had close to 70 unforced errors. I mean, if I'm not shooting myself in the foot like that, then I'm going to be able to most likely be the victor.

        She is very good and stayed in there. That's what it takes to beat someone like me. But obviously it was not my best day. It's like, you know, we'll obviously play again. I just feel like I'll make a few less errors next time around.

        Q. Your presence of your father was helping your game other times. When your father was present, this help your game? You think his absence make it worse?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: I like it when my dad's at the tournaments. I do. But, you know, at the end of the day, I'm out there on the court. I've trained and been told what to do, so I have to get it right. So it's not really my dad or anyone else. It's just one of those days, and it's me so... That's it.

        Q. The studies and extracurricular activities, do you think you might have a bit too much on your plate?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Uhm, I try not to push myself too hard, but also my personality is a bit that I have to be. This is the way I am. I'm not happy unless I'm doing what I need to be doing. That's tennis and also includes other things off the court. This year I'll be finished with all that, too, so that will be nice.

        Q. What do you mean?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: I'll be finished with school this year.

        Q. You're still attending? I didn't realize that.

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Yeah, yeah, I'm on the down low.

        Q. This is fashion school?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Yes.

        Q. Is this result an indication that no one's safe in women's tennis now, particularly in the first week of a Slam?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: I think this result is an indication that you cannot make 70 unforced errors and expect to win a match. That's pretty much what it is.

        Q. Why should we believe that you'll be back to where you were?

        VENUS WILLIAMS: Well, I think that at the end of the day, I don't care if you believe or anyone else believes in here, because it's me. So believe what you want to. There's always going to be nay sayers. You may be one of them, I don't know. Guess what, I don't care.
