Interview by Bartoli "I envy no-one"

http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...-personne.html


"I envy no-one"

[...]

There's been a lot of media coverage about Aravane Rezai lately. You've been asked about her after your match. Do you think people forget you are the french number 1 player?
I couldn't care less.


You were a semifinalist in Miami playing very well. Do you come here with a lot of ambition?

There is no ambition. The player with ambition, you already mentionned her, me, I don't need to have any ambition.


You did not have the same results as her on clay.
You do what you want, but sincerely, when I do a semi in Miami, I have the feeling it goes completely unnoticed. But you do as you want, that's not my problem. [...]

At the begining of the year, you put a lot of hope on the claycourt season, et mostly, on Roland Garros.
Each year is the same! I'm not going to arrive here and tell myself "i don't play that well on clay, so i'm gonna lose on the first round"! It's not logical. Of course I try, i have goals to reach when the year begins, being french, evenmore in a Grand Slam in Paris, i don't see why i should have no ambition in Roland Garros [...]

This year, the french women started pretty badly.
Oh, not again! So?

You have nothing to say on the topic?
No, but you are a bit hard on us globaly, because we all try to do our best. [...] But sometimes you get a draw like Alizée against Pavlyuchenkova, who is a really good player. It seems unlikely that all the french get to the fourth round or the quarters.



I tried to translate it the best i could, in the french version you can really feel the tension...

That said, I think she's right, the french medias are terrible with the local players (overexpectating, merciless when they lose, or overforgiving depending on which player we're talking about).

Really, ANOTHER thread on Marion's quotes?!

Shes right about the media being too hard on them though.

That's a weird thing to say. I know what the intention was, but to say she herself has "no ambition" in her home slam is just strange.

Seems like she just got pissed with the reporter and decided to clam up. Can't blame her--they can ask some really dumb questions.

Re: Interview by Bartoli "I envy no-one"

The second comment makes no sense.

Marion seems a little defensive, but I can understand: same old questions and some additional ones trying to get a rise out of players. It gets old for them, I'm sure.

So what? She should have said to that reporter, 'F.U.'

So what, she should start being BFFs with all the journalists who she hasnt gotten on with for years who are clearly trying to get a rise out of her with stupid questions?

Make up your mind Bartoli, you are contradicting yourself.
Do you have ambitions or not at Roland Garros?

Re: Interview by Bartoli "I envy no-one"

I don't think she's bitter. She's probably sick and tired of answering questions about Rezai's Clay results. Good for her she won a Clay tournament. Why do those stupid journalists have to keep shoving it down Marion's throat? I would be pissed, too.

Marion's answer to every question should be: STFU! Next question, please?
