i'll try :

"I think that she's playing well, but not yet her best tennis ... She has again better in her"

Q - How do u feel Mary ?
As trong as she was in 2000 or 1995 ... She's moving better, she has more velocity, more experience, more mental abilities, she hits very hard, i think she's well.

Q - What have changed Mary, who's now on fire ?
D - A lot of very hard work, her all-life experience and her faith in God.

- something not interesting at all, then :

Q - Tell us about Nick Bollitierri ...
D - He gives us boys to hit the ball with Mary, a place to train. He comes sometimes to tell us advice, he's a tennis coach since 30 years, he sees evrything, he knows everything.

Q - Your work with Mary is a 'coach-coach" one or a "brother-coach" one ?
D - It's coach coach and brother coach ... We speak as coach coach before the match, and as brother and sister. There are the two sides which make her be calmier, and happier. She knows i'm there only for her, i'm not here because she pays me.

Q - What have u done with her, what are your responsabilities in her comeback ?
D - I helped her to find her "voice", her way ... how to say ? ...
For her mental, I said her to stay calm, to be more confident ... sometimes when she felt the pressure, she broke down ... she so i helped her to stay strong.
About her tennis, nothing to really change, we just worked so much.

Q - Another Question, during the changeovers, Mary usually uses ice all over her body, it's quite strange, it's unusual ... Why ?
D - It's just to avoid a "???" (he says the word in American but i don't understand it) ! It's to avoid to be "too hot" ^^

Q - Mary is on fire, is she happier now ?
D - No, she's happier since a while, it's not to win matches that have changed her spirit and made her to be happy. it's something since one year which has evoluated and, that's all.


Gosh sorry, it was very difficult, hope Saby or somebody better than i'm will be able to make a better translation ! I gave everything i can

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."

Thank You Wizzy...that is good!

Mary is the most graceful and charming tennis player of the universal, and anyone who love Mary or understand Mary is also a kind gentle one!

Sometimes David was "Hmm, i don't understand ..." ! It's clearly because the other was inventing words, and no one could have understood him !

I believe too, but 2 times on tv they said Mary was younger, anyways some journalists said stupid stuffs before ...LOL

This interview was kind of funny, a spanish journalist trying to speak french and David trying to answer to some questions which he didn't understand.
I amaze by David, he doesn't have any accent, he just has a problem with feminin and masculin words (like Mary) LOL

I know -- isn't his French just amazing?? Although, yes, he does tend to get a little confused when it comes to masculine and feminine words... much more so than Mary I would say. Still it's a pleasure to hear them both speak...
