We had much the same thing here in the U.S. Bud Collins was always saying she should go to net more. It became a kind of recurring joke between Steffi and him.

Bud: Are you planning on going to the net a little more?
Steffi: No, but I'll go in a few times -- just for you. [And she smiles coquettishly at him.]

Bud: Was that *you* I saw going to the net so much?
Steffi: Yeah. Actually I was thinking about you during the match.

Bud: You played serve and volley!
Steffi: Yeah, but I made a few mistakes on it, too, I have to admit. So, uh, some good ones, some bad ones.
