PRESS RELEASE:

Interview with Rtael Osomogovic

by Rtael

Q. How do you feel coming into this first tournament of the tennis year?

A. Well very nervous of course. But confident also. I trained very hard in the off-season and I'm ready to grab the #1 ranking. I know I can do it and so does every one else so they better watch out for me.

Q. How do you feel about not having won a title or last year?

A. Well I feel, really, it was just a fluke. I mean I did very well in many tournaments, I finished #14 in the rankings and I reached the finals of the French so you know, I mean, it's obvious that I should have won a title, but I can gurantee you that I will win one this year and probably a lot more than just one!


Q. You said your ambition this year is to capture the #1 spot, well the world's #1, #2, #4, #6, and #7 are all at this tournament, how do you think you will fare againt these world's top players?

A. Well I know I'm going to have to work very hard to beat them but I feel if I just play my game and stay patient and play smart then I will win and no one can stop me.

(Rtael):Alright, I have to go warm up for my first round match now! Cya!

(Interviewer): Thanks for the wonderful interview. Good luck!

I strongly suggest your commit in the PAW Commitment Thread - located in the PAW forum. You can commit to other events as well (January-February)...

Otherwise I can grant you a wildcard, but remember you are only permitted to two for the whole year. So I suggest, you commit

Just a note:

With the new PAW ranking system, the ranking system points for Gold Coast have changed slightly to distribute over the top 56 positions, rather than the top 30.
