“If I Win, Better.”

Posted by gauloises1 on August 16, 2009

From Elf’s presser after beating Roddick:

Q.  In recent times you’ve really –  you just talked about your serve.  You’ve improved your serve and your mental game.  What do you think are the reasons for that, causes for that?
 JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO:  Well, I just was thinking about – I don’t look to the other side.  I just play my game, and I always keep fighting.
 If I win, better.  If I lose, anyway, you just fighting until the final, and that’s what I do today and the other matches, also.

 Q.  What’s your feeling about facing Murray who has also played very well this week?
 JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO:  Yes, he’s playing much better than anyone and will be good for me.  I like to play with players better than me, and I think he has the pressure for tomorrow, but I will try to do my best in my first final, and I want to enjoy it.

And a brief but adorable on-court interview:

    Sigh. I’ll try not to go too gushy gushy over here, but … love how calm and composed he is. Especially in the on court interview, where he said something about “he’ll still want to smile” after the final, even if he loses.

    Sigh + 90000000000000000000000000.

    i hope the tower of tandil wins leap frog and gets the crystal trophy.
