When one looks at polishprodigy’s resume, there is one result which captures that reader’s impression immediately, US OPEN Runner up 2003. Which polishprodigy, a 20 year old Canadian, born in Poland, worked hard for and thoroughly deserved. Now just sitting outside the top 20, polishprodigy has failed to make the best of starts to his 2004 campaign, but has been working on new game strategies that will and should pay dividends over time. Howevers factors which sway in polishprodigy’s favour in eventually becoming an elite PAW player lies in the fact that he always performs consistently well in the Grand Slams, the real pinnacle of PAW. Even somewhat out-of-sorts, the Canadian number one managed to finish a very promising 24th, fully living up to his seeding of 23. Performances like these prove there is indeed plenty of petrol left in the tank.
Q. Hello polishprodigy, you began PAW in Wimbledon last year, what catalyzed your debut?
oh (laughs) Well, i heard about the game and i thought it was interesting, and i like betting, so i wanted to play and i did well in my first tournie, so i wanted to continue.
Q. You play several games on the board, what do you find interesting about PAW?
the fact that it is in competitive.
Q. You are currently the top ranked Canadian but sometimes you have opted to play for Poland, can you tell us a bit about your frequent Nationality changes?
(laughs) Well, i live in Canada but my parents are from Poland, so I share my time equally between the two nations as they are both close to my heart. I speak both English and Polish.
Q. Both Poland and Canada have lots of highly ranked PAW players, who will you represent in the Olympics?
hmmm, how many for each nation?
Q. Not sure, maybe top 3...
I will have to consider this at a later time. I will speak to my coaches and make a final decision later.
Q. Last year you came 6th in Toronto after only 11 picks, this obviously displays your talent, has it been a bit of a slow start this year?
Yes, for sure. last year I did not play a full season so i have a great opportunity. And i have certainly been dismayed with my results. But I will continue to work hard and hopefully i will have a breakthrough soon.
Q. Do you think PAW is a complex game, but do you take it easy on yourself?
I think it can be complex, as women's tennis is becoming more competitive. But the concept is simple.
Q. Who are your best friends on tour?
umm, Wojtek and Jakub.
Q. Finally can you give us five words to describe PAW as a game?
Competitive. Challenging. Easy-to-play. Fun. Long.
Q. Cheers Paul.
