Mary Pierce has beautiful ambitions for 2006
" To win a Slam "


Mary Pierce had left us on one finale of anthology in last November with Masters of Los Angeles. In this beginning of year, the Frenchwoman carries the most optimist glance on the new season.


Mary, you realized an exceptional year in 2005, marked by your victories to San Diego and Moscow and your finales to Roland Garros, the US OPEN, Masters Cup and Fed Cup. What do you think about it?

Mary Pierce:
It was an exceptional year. Since RG, everything was very well linked. I lived very strong moments with many victories and very few defeats. I even caught myself by taking away match which I would have never thought of winning.

We feel you more serene on courts. Did you modify your method of approach important rendez-vous?

Mary Pierce:
Let's say that I do not put on myself any more useless pressure, I'm above that now, I understood that work pays whatever it arrives and whatever results do not come alone. My watchwords are henceforth discipline and determination.

Having beaten the better players of the tour, do you think of having qualities required to be able to, one day, to become number one in the world?

Mary Pierce:
I always dream to be the best player of the world. The last season, I effectively beat girls who were seedeed better than me (NDLR: Mary Pierce is 5-th in the WTA). To become number one is completely possible. I am not afraid of anybody.

We already evoked it, the year 2005 will have been for you a big vineyard, but you very often failed in finale. In the future, could it destabilize you in the approach of big tournaments, notably for the Slam?

Mary Pierce:
I am going to surprise you but I keep only good memories of my finales. There is no bitterness or psychological impact. On the contrary, it motivates me even more for 2006.

About the new season, did you settle precise objectives?

Mary Pierce:
I am going at first to try to make as well as in 2005 while knowing that my main ambition is to win a Slam. Then, if I can improve my ranking and become french number one, well it will be great. But sincerely I do not think of it really.

And about Fed Cup?

Mary Pierce:
I gave a lot of myself this last 3 years because I like this competition. It is a special moment when the french team is together. If I am selected in the group, I will be very motivated to win.

Which is going to be your comeback tournament?

Mary Pierce:
As in 1995 and in last January, I shall make my return for the competition at the AO. I am in phase of preparation and I already feel good sensations. I already look forward to being in Melbourne because I appreciate enormously this tournament.

You will maybe cross the road of Martina Hingis...

Mary Pierce:
Personally, I am very happy to see her again at the highest level, she is champ. I do not know her current level but I think that she chose the good moment to return because the circuit looks very opened, for everybody

Mary Pierce nourrit de belles ambitions pour 2006
«Gagner un Grand Chelem»



Mary Pierce nous avait laissés sur une finale d’anthologie en novembre dernier au Masters de Los Angeles. En ce début d'année, la Française porte un regard des plus optimistes sur la nouvelle saison. Interview


Mary, vous avez réalisé un parcours exceptionnel en 2005 marqué par vos victoires à San Diego et Moscou et vos finales à Roland Garros, l’US Open, la Masters Cup et la Fed Cup. Quel bilan en tirez-vous ?

Mary Pierce :
C'était une année exceptionnelle. Depuis les Internationaux de France, tout s’est très bien enchaîné. J’ai vécu des moments très forts avec beaucoup de victoires et très peu de défaites. Je me suis même surprise moi-même en remportant des matches que je n’aurais jamais pensé gagner.

On vous sent justement plus sereine sur les courts. Avez-vous modifié votre manière d’aborder les grands rendez-vous ?

Mary Pierce :
Disons que je ne me mets plus de pression inutile, j’ai dépassé tout ça. J’ai surtout compris que le travail paye quoi qu’il arrive et que les résultats ne viennent pas tous seuls. Mes mots d’ordre sont désormais discipline et détermination.

Après avoir battu les plus grandes joueuses du circuit, pensez-vous avoir les qualités requises pour pouvoir, un jour, devenir numéro un mondiale ?

Mary Pierce :
Je rêve toujours d’être la meilleure joueuse du monde. La saison dernière, j’ai effectivement battu des filles qui étaient classées devant moi au classement (NDLR : Mary Pierce est 5e à la WTA). Devenir numéro un est tout à fait possible. Je ne crains personne.

On l’a déjà évoqué, l’année 2005 aura été pour vous un grand cru, mais vous avez très souvent échoué en finale. A l’avenir, Cela pourrait-il vous déstabiliser à l’approche des grands tournois, notamment ceux du Grand Chelem ?

Mary Pierce :
Je vais vous surprendre mais je ne garde que de bons souvenirs de mes finales. Il n’y a aucune amertume ni impact psychologique. Au contraire, cela me motive encore plus pour 2006.

A propos de la nouvelle saison, vous êtes-vous fixé des objectifs précis ?

Mary Pierce :
Je vais d’abord tenter de faire aussi bien qu'en 2005 tout en sachant que mon ambition principale est de gagner un tournoi du Grand Chelem. Ensuite, si je peux améliorer mon classement et devenir numéro un française, tant mieux. Mais sincèrement, je n’y pense pas vraiment.

Et en ce qui concerne la Fed Cup ?

Mary Pierce :
Je m’y suis beaucoup investie cette année car j’adore cette compétition. C’est un moment spécial où l’équipe de France se retrouve ensemble. Si je suis retenue dans le groupe, je serai à nouveau très motivée pour la gagner.

Quel va être votre tournoi de rentrée ?

Mary Pierce :
Comme en 1995 et en janvier dernier, je ferai mon retour à la compétition à l’Open d’Australie. Je suis en phase de préparation et je ressens déjà de bonnes sensations.J’ai déjà hâte d’être à Melbourne car j’apprécie énormément ce tournoi.

Vous serez peut-être amenée à croiser la route de Martina Hingis…

Mary Pierce :
Personnellement, je suis très heureuse de la revoir au plus haut niveau, c’est une grande championne. Je ne connais pas son niveau actuel mais je pense qu’elle a choisi le bon moment pour revenir car le circuit s’annonce très ouvert, pour tout le monde.

Mary Pierce VS Nicole Pratt

MP - 2004 - 6.1 6.1 - Montréal
MP - 2003 - 6.3 6.3 - Charleston
MP - 2000 - 6.1 6.3 - Wimbledon

Mary is up to 3.0 against Nicole with barely same score, even during the time that Mary was out of shape she won so I hope she will continu.

Will it be easy to play an australian at the OZ?! ...but apparently Mary is one of the most popular players in australia...I guess we will know very soon

There is an article in today newspaper :

Mary has been sick during 4 or 5 days and she did move in her new appartement some streets aways from RG, bought everything she needed....

This article completely secure me on how Mary is feeling, guys Xavier Moreau is so damm crazy, you can't imagine what he did to Mary.

He trainned her so hard that she can now push 200kg on one leg, one year ago Mary could push only 150kg :eek: David said I don't know a lot of girls who is able to do that, since last year physicaly Mary progressed hugely !!

They did a really hard work on the way Mary was running, she modified angles and she is now quicker, her stamina is much better and she can use her power at her maximim, Mary did have same training that Xavier did to Amélie. Mary is feeling very good and she is ready

Q. A 6‑1, 6‑1 win is a nice way to start. Can you take anything out of it for the rest of the tournament?MARY PIERCE: Definitely, it's a good feeling. It's a good start. My first match in a couple months competitively. It's always good to just kind of get going, get used to the environment, get used to competing again. I was very, very happy with my play today. I was able to be focused. I felt like I moved well and I played well. So very happy.

Q. Been a while since you performed well. Obviously, you won a few years ago. How long has it actually been since you felt you could win the tournament coming to Australia?

MARY PIERCE: I don't know. I don't really come to a tournament thinking I can't win. You know, I think I've just been getting fitter and fitter as the time is going over the last two years, working very hard for the last two years. It started to pay off last year. I'm feeling really good still. Hopefully I'll continue and be even better this year.

Q. Do you feel in your bones this might be one of your best chances in the last few years?

MARY PIERCE: No, I don't think about that.

Q. After last year's successes.

MARY PIERCE: No, you know, I don't know. I just really take it day to day. I just enjoy every day and what I do. I just do my best. Just really leave the rest to God and His plan for me.

You know, I just have a lot of peace in what will happen. Not really concerned about winning or losing really. That's not why I'm playing. Just enjoy to be out here, you know, to serve the Lord with the gift He's given me to play tennis. After that, whatever happens is the best for me in the end anyways.

Q. Your comeback has been cited as an inspiration by Hingis, Seles and Dokic. How does that make you feel?

MARY PIERCE: I mean, I guess in a way surprised and pleased. Different emotions, I guess, to have your peers be inspired by yourself. I mean, I know I've been inspired by others. It's a very powerful thing. You know, I think it's great also in a way because I've been through difficult times and I've worked really hard. I persevered. I never gave up. You know, I guess it's a great thing that if that can help others.

Q. Have you spoken to any of those players about your comeback, about their own comebacks?

MARY PIERCE: Well, you know, Martina and I, we talk once in a while. Monica, as well. We keep in touch. With Jelena, I haven't seen her in a while. I've just seen her since I've been here in Melbourne, but we haven't really talked about that.

Q. When things are going along, a Grand Slam champion like you, making a lot of money, then you go down, the money doesn't come in, people don't talk with players of your caliber. Making $2.5 million, does that make you appreciate it more?

MARY PIERCE: Does it make me appreciate?

Q. Is it nice? Is it helpful, sort of give you a greater appreciation that it just doesn't always flow in because it didn't flow in for a few years?

MARY PIERCE: You know, I'm not sure I really understand what your question is.

Q. Most players, the superstars, make a lot of money, then they stop. Then they realize maybe what it's like not having it come in. You've kept on, went down, all of a sudden it came in big time last year.

MARY PIERCE: Okay. Yeah, you know, I've never played for money. That's not what motivates me. You know, I mean, I don't even know how much I made last year. It's not really an issue for me.

Of course, we all need it to live. I think I'm very blessed, overly blessed, with what I do and how much money I guess I make. You know, I just want to actually use those finances in the best way possible, and also be able to bless other people, as well.

Q. She said something after the match that seemed to make you laugh. Can you share that with us?

MARY PIERCE: Nicole?

Q. Yes.

MARY PIERCE: You'll have to ask her that (laughter).

Q. Has anything changed in the past 12 months as far as just being more relaxed out there? Is that something that comes with having been around, perhaps getting to the latter stages of your career? Do you feel sort of like, I don't know, more relaxed? You talked about being more peaceful, et cetera.

MARY PIERCE: Well, you know, the peace in my life and just the happiness and joy and all that kind of stuff, not worrying about anything, that just comes with my relationship with the Lord more than ‑‑ that's pretty much it. Being at peace on the court, it all comes together. Being off the court or on the court, personally and professionally, that's the most important thing for me in my life. It's really made a difference, changed me as well over the last few years.

Tennis - Open d'Australie (F)
PIERCE DÉJÀ AFFÛTÉE (http://sport.aliceadsl.fr/HTML/Tennis/170106_AUSTRALIE_F.html)
Cinquante deux minutes de jeu ont suffi à Mary Pierce pour se défaire de
Nicole Pratt (6-1, 6-1).

http://www.lequipe.fr/Xml/Tennis/Titres/Media/170106_Pierce_Reuters.jpg (http://sport.aliceadsl.fr/HTML/Tennis/170106_AUSTRALIE_F.html)

MARY PIERCE EST BIEN LÀ
Mary Pierce est apparue en grande forme lors de son premier tour contre Nicole Pratt.

http://www.lequipe.fr/Xml/Tennis/Dossiers/Media/170116_AUS_pierce1.jpg

Mary Pierce (FRA/N°5, vainqueur de l'Australienne Nicole Pratt) : «C'était mon premier match en compétition depuis deux mois. Je suis très, très contente de mon jeu. J'ai été bien concentrée et je me suis bien déplacée. (en cas de match contre Hingis au 3e tour) Ca peut être un match très difficile car on ne sait pas trop où elle en est. Je suis beaucoup mieux que l'année dernière (elle avait perdu au premier tour). Physiquement, je suis plus affûtée et au niveau du tennis, je suis beaucoup plus forte. Il y a une grande différence.»

Placée dans le bas de tableau avec Mauresmo, Mary Pierce (n°5) n'a pas caché ses ambitions dans un tournoi qu'elle affectionne particulièrement au point d'y débarquer habituellement sans préparation. Battue au premier tour en 2005, la Française n'a pas de points à défendre et entend se rapprocher de la première place mondiale. Elle a fait un pas en promenant Nicole Pratt (6-1, 6-1), qui a constaté l'efficacité du travail physique effectué par Pierce cet hiver. La Française, qui a fêté ses 31 ans dimanche, a totalement débordé l'Australienne (119e) par la lourdeur de ses frappes et a bouclé son premier match de la saison en 52 minutes.

Pierce Draws on Inner Peaceby Luke Buttigieg
Tuesday, 17 January, 2006

After cruising through to the second-round of Australian Open 2006, French veteran Mary Pierce revealed that her love for the game and an inner contentment are the driving forces behind her return to the upper echelons of women's tennis.

Pierce's Grand Slam breakthrough came at Melbourne Park way back in 1995 and, after adding the French Open to her collection five years later, she ended the 2000 season ranked No.7 in the world.

But injuries ruined Pierce's 2001 campaign and she slumped to No.130 by season's end before making the quarter-finals at Roland Garros in 2002 as a wildcard when ranked at No.132, with her run to the last eight ended by eventual champion Serena Williams.

Pierce jumped back to the brink of the top 50 by the end of that year and steady climbs into the top 35 and then the top 30 in the following years gave an indication of the spectacular return the 31-year-old was to make to the world's top 10 in 2005.

After a slow start to the year, Pierce claimed impressive wins over Vera Douchevina, Jelena Kostanic, Vera Zvonareva, Patty Schnyder, Lindsay Davenport and Elena Likhovtseva before falling to Justine Henin-Hardenne in the French Open final.

A quarter-final berth at Wimbledon - where she went down to eventual champion Venus Williams - was followed by another Grand Slam final appearance, this time at the US Open at Flushing Meadows.

Having ousted Mara Santangelo, Katarina Srebotnik, Jelena Jankovic, Henin-Hardenne, Amelie Mauresmo and Elena Dementieva, Pierce's fairytale run was again ended at the final hurdle by a Belgian, this time by Kim Clijsters.

But having taken just 52 minutes to see off the challenge of local Nicole Pratt on Vodafone Arena on Tuesday, racing to 5-0 and 4-0 leads in the two sets as she triumphed 6-1 6-1, Pierce spoke of the peaceful attitude that has been paying dividends.

"I just really take it day to day," Pierce said. "I just enjoy every day and what I do. I just do my best. Just really leave the rest to God and His plan for me. You know, I just have a lot of peace in what will happen.

"I'm not really concerned about winning or losing really. That's not why I'm playing. Just enjoy to be out here, you know, to serve the Lord with the gift He's given me to play tennis. After that, whatever happens is the best for me in the end anyways.

"Well, you know, the peace in my life and just the happiness and joy and all that kind of stuff, not worrying about anything, that just comes with my relationship with the Lord more than, that's pretty much it.

"Being at peace on the court, it all comes together. Being off the court or on the court, personally and professionally, that's the most important thing for me in my life. It's really made a difference, changed me as well over the last few years."

'Honoured, surprised and pleased' that fellow players Martina Hingis, Monica Seles and Jelena Dokic have all admitted being inspired by her form resurgence, Pierce added that she was delighted by her form against Pratt.

"It's a good feeling, it's a good start," she said. "It's always good to just kind of get going, get used to the environment, get used to competing again. I was very, very happy with my play today. I was able to be focused. I felt like I moved well and I played well.

"I think I've just been getting fitter and fitter as the time is going over the last two years, working very hard for the last two years. It started to pay off last year. I'm feeling really good still. Hopefully I'll continue and be even better this year."
