Shit :(
I started translating that but i closed the window :(
Anyway she doesn't really say anything new : She loves playing for her country, it helps her feeling 100% French. She's happy that when she's playing FedCup people consider her as a French and not as a Russian emigrated anymore.. So she feels like she has to win those matches, where pressure is by far more important than in a classic tourney. However the joy she feels if she wins is by far more intense too..

Tati's interview after her match against Sharapova:

I think a translation will be available soon but if you want to have a vague idea of what she says (thanks to google translation :)), here is the transcript of the interview:

- QUELLE ANALYSE portez-vous sur cette sévère défaite contre Maria Sharapova ?
– C’était un test, car ça faisait longtemps que je n’avais plus joué contre l’une des toutes meilleures. J’ai perdu le premier set 6-0, mais j’ai eu beaucoup de balles de jeu que je n’ai pas su convertir, et ça me donne quelques regrets. Cela mis à part, elle m’a vraiment paru très grande sur le court aujourd’hui ; je l’ai trouvée très difficile à déborder. Elle frappait très fort, et je n’arrivais pas à jouer mon jeu. Je ne sais pas si c’est à cause du manque de matches… Je ne sais pas si j’y croyais à fond, en fait…

– Vous revenez pourtant dans le deuxième de0-3à 3-3et la partie
semble s’équilibrer...
– Oui, mais il aurait fallu tenir un niveau de jeu très élevé tout le temps, et je ne sais pas si je me sentais vraiment prête à le faire. Je me dis que je vais tirer des enseignements de ce match. J’enchaîne maintenant sur Los Angeles. Je dois continuer à bosser pour retrouver mon vrai niveau de jeu. Dans l’ensemble, j’ai le sentiment d’avoir un peu mieux joué qu’à Stanford, ce qui est encourageant. De toute manière, quand vous sortez de blessure, ça prend du temps de retrouver ses repères et toute la confiance en ses coups.

– Avez-vous hâte d’entamer votre collaboration avec Mats Wilander, qui sera avec vous la semaine prochaine ?
– En fait, je ne veux pas avoir trop d’attentes quant à cette collaboration. Il faut d’abord commencer à travailler,qu’on essaye, et, si ça marche bien,tant mieux. S’il arrive à m’apporter les choses dont j’ai besoin, c’est super,mais, encore une fois, je n’ai pas tropd’attentes, parce que je sais que çapeut très bien marcher comme ça peutne pas marcher du tout.

Transcript:

C’est l’un des couples surprises de l’année. Alors que s’ébauchait,
il y a deux mois, la possibilité d’un tandem estival Mauresmo-Forget, c’est finalement le duo Golovin-Wilander qui fait ses débuts cette semaine au Canada.
L’ex-champion suédois porte un regard éclairé et bienveillant sur sa mission auprès de la championne française.


TORONTO –
de notre envoyé spécial

IL Y A QUELQUES MOIS, Mats Wilander et le tennis féminin, ce n’était pas le grand amour. Dans ces mêmes colonnes, l’ancien champion suédois (sept titres du Grand Chelem dans les années 80, dont trois Roland-Garros) se fendait régulièrement d’une chronique où il reprochait à la plupart des joueuses un manque de physique et de discernement sur le plan tactique.
Cette semaine, à Toronto, Wilander,quarante-trois ans dans une semaine, baigne dans le circuit WTA.
Il est depuis jeudi dernier devenu officiellement l’entraîneur de Tatiana Golovin, française, dixneuf ans, 19e mondiale. Réputée pour ses désirs d’indépendance et sa volonté de ne pas s’attacher un entraîneur à plein temps, la « Petite » va-t-elle filer droit ?

« Oh là, là, ce n’est pas du tout comme ça que je vois les choses, s’exclamait Wilander après la victoire aisée de sa nouvelle protégée au premier tour, lundi soir. Pour moi, il ne doit y avoir aucun rapport de domination dans les relations. Je vois trop de tandems composés d’un joueur qui a peur du coach ou du coach qui lui aussi a peur de son joueur. Le joueur sur le court a la trouille de mal faire et le coach, dans les gradins, craint de se faire virer en cas de mauvais résultats. Avec ça, on ne va pas loin. »


Visiblement heureux de tenter une première expérience de coaching féminin avec Golovin (il a été auparavant l’entraîneur de Marat Safin), Wilander veut la jouer cool : « Il doit y avoir un respect mutuel mais surtout, pour que ça marche, il faut que les deux parties soient heureuses. Moi, je marche au feeling. Je ne vais pas aller dîner tous les soirs avec Tati, je ne le fais d’ailleurs pas avec ma femme !Mais je ne vais pas non plus vivre systématiquement ma viede mon côté lorsque les entraînements sont terminés. Il faut à la fois de la complicité et une certaine indépendance, il faut avoir des choses à se raconter, que ce soit sur le tennis ou d’autres sujets. Peu importe la différence d’âge, l’expérience, les palmarès. On est embarqués dans une même aventure, à nous de la vivre pleinement avec le sourire et sans se mettre de pression."


Ce côté relax commun à Wilander et à Golovin n’empêche pas le Suédois de savoir ce qu’il veut : « Pour l’instant, sur le court, je me mets en face d’elle car j’ai besoin de “ sentir ”son jeu. Je vois déjà de petits changements concernant en premier lieu son revers mais, d’une manière générale, Tati possède des bases solides et il n’y aura pas beaucoup de modifications techniques à apporter. Sur le plan de la stratégie, je crois que mon expérience peut lui être utile. Moi, quand j’ai commencé à bien jouer sur le circuit, j’avais le jeu le plus emmerdant qui soit. Petit à petit, avec l’expérience, mon jeu a évolué et, à la fin de ma carrière, je crois que j’étais devenu un joueur beaucoup plus complet. Tati n’a pas un jeu “ chiant ” mais elle a encore pas mal de choses à apprendre. Mais c’est normal. À dix-neuf ans, sauf exception, tout athlète pro ne sait pas encore exactement ce qu’il doit faire. Pour l’instant, Tati joue avant tout sur son talent et il faut que petit à petit elle devienne plus professionnelle. »
Après avoir prononcé ce dernier mot, Wilander précisa tout de suite qu’il ne considérait pas Golovin comme une aimable joueuse
dépourvue de sérieux, au contraire :
« Il n’est pas possible à dix-neuf ans d’être professionnelle à cent pour cent, surtout lorsque, comme moi à son âge, on a aussi envie de se sortir du tennis. Moi, j’avais besoin de voir mes amis, de jouer de la guitare, de faire un parcours de golf, de m’amuser, quoi. Cela ne m’empêchait pas de me concentrer à cent pour cent sur mon tennis quand il le fallait. Tati est pareille. Quand je parle de devenir plus professionnelle, ce n’est pas pour qu’elle renonce à tout le reste. Ce n’est pas non plus s’entraîner cinq à six heures par jour. C’est apprendre à mieux se connaître elle-même, savoir se nourrir, savoir se préparer physiquement, etc. En tous les cas, je sens chez Tatiana un profond désir de travailler, une réceptivité de tous les instants. »
Une bonne écoute réciproque, mais pas de tous les instants : « Je ne veux surtout pas devenir coach à plein temps ! avoue Wilander. Je pense que j’en aurais vite assez si j’étais sur tous les tournois dix mois sur douze, sans compter les périodes d’entraînement. De toute façon, Tatiana est suffisamment bien entourée sur le circuit. À partir du moment où elle aura un programme bien précis à suivre, ça ira très bien. »
L’association entre le champion suédois et la joueuse française est prévue jusqu’à l’US Open. À ce jour, le duo est invaincu…

Here is a Tati article about her new relationship with Mats:

“Two for two,” said Mats Wilander. “Two for two.”

Okay, so it's early days yet, but the new coach-player team of Wilander and Tatiana Golovin are undefeated so far. And Wilander has a good feeling about the next match, too.

“She plays Dementieva or Schiavone next, I don’t know who won that match,” he said, walking back to the players’ lounge after Golovin had defeated Dominika Cibulkova 6-4, 6-3 in her second round match in Toronto.

When told that Schiavone had pulled off an upset over Dementieva, his reaction wasn’t quite as phlegmatic as you’d expect from a tour coach. “It’s Schiavone? Really?” He gave a little fist pump. “Yes!”

Still, outside Davis Cup, it’s been a while since Wilander was last in the coaching game. His most recent gigs have been as a commentator, where being reactionary is part of the job description. There he’s been successful to the point of – shall we say – euphemism.

Golovin probably also likes her chances against Schiavone, but she refrained from sounding quite as jubilant. The two last faced off in the Fed Cup semifinals in July, with Golovin holding a 5-2 lead in the third set and losing. Italy went on to clinch the tie 2-1.

“Really bad memory about that match... so definitely looking for revenge. But on the other side, it’s a new day, it’s a new match,” she said. “She won that tournament a couple of weeks ago [Bad Gastein] and she beat Dementieva, so she must be playing well... I think we both know each other’s game quite well, so it’s going to be quite tough mentally.”

Whatever happens in that match, both sound pleased with the early stages of the partnership. When asked what it’s been like so far, Golovin’s voice lifted enthusiastically. “He’s just been awesome, he’s been great. He’s been telling me stories about the way [he used to play]. Just a lot of fun.”

Wilander also gave it a thumbs up, and said the two had been acquainted for a while and talked a few times before. “But we have some very good friends in common, so I knew everything about her,” he grinned. “And everything so far is true.”

One of those things, he said, was that Golovin has a winner’s mentality. Whether the rest were quite as innocuous – who knows?

Where her game is concerned, Wilander wants to work on Golovin’s topspin backhand so she comes over the ball with more spin, “like Nadal,” rather than “shoving it.”

He also wants to concentrate on ‘approach set-ups’. That means being alert to which shot will draw weak replies, allowing her to get in position to hit a forceful approach and come in if necessary - rather than always trying to end points with a clean winner. “Federer is a master at this.”

Nadal and Federer – there’s certainly nothing wrong with the role models being used.

Golovin, meanwhile, hopes Wilander will help her with “how I play the big points.”

During her match against Cibulkova, Golovin did something she’s never done before – use the experimental WTA rule that allows coaching between matches. Though neither of them likes the rule, it was a good chance for the pair to get a sense of each other’s mid-match mindset. “We’re still in the process of getting to know each other, so I think it was kind of a practice and more to see how I felt on the court,” she said. “It wasn’t even coaching, it just to figure out how I feel out there.”

During the rest of the match, Wilander sat in the stands and shouted encouragement. “Let’s gh-o, Tat!”

The initial plan was for the two of them to work together through Los Angeles, Toronto and the US Open, though Golovin had to retire in her first match at Los Angeles with a hamstring problem.

Golovin has worked with high profile coaches before, including Brad Gilbert and Dean Goldfine, but those relationships have not lasted for long. It’s not yet clear whether this latest arrangement will continue after the summer, but Wilander is positive about Golovin’s long-term potential.

“She’s not going to win the US Open this year, I don’t think, but in the future, who knows what can happen?,” he said. “Some players are really good really young, some mature later. She was good at a young age and then kind of stagnated a little bit, but she can have a really good career for the next six, seven years.”

Thanks selyonik.

In the French one Tati acts like if she split with Wilander :rolls: What an actress..
"Mats ? he's gone for good, right to the airport.. After having spent 8 days with me, he couldn't bear me anymore. He needed to breathe !"
Golovin then tried to look sad and to cry.
"That's true, he really left, he let me all by myself before the end of the tournament, he won't see my QF.. In fact, he was meant to do that for a while before we started to work together. So yeah, he left, but we'll work together again next week !"

Finally I had time to translate it! :)
Better late than never ;)

I have only translated what Mats Wilander said about his collaboration with Tati...

When he was asked if Tati will do all he asks:
"Oh la la, I don't see things this way! There mustn't be any superiority rapport in relationships. I see a lot of players afraid of their coach and a lot of coaches afraid of their own player.
When he is on the court, the player is afraid of doing everything wrong and the coach is afraid of getting fired in case of bad results.
With a relationship like this, you don't go far..."


"There must be a mutual respect of course but if we really want it to work, both parts need to be happy.
I need to feel things. I won't go dinner everynight with Tati, I don't even do it with my wife! But I won't systematically live my life by my side when the training sessions are finished. We both need complicity and a certain independence. We need to talk to each other, about tennis or other things. Age difference, experience or prize lists don't matter: We are embarked in the same adventure now, we need to live that smiling and without pressure."

"For the moment, I need to "feel" her game. I already see small changes on her backhand... But Tati has solid bases and there won't be a lot of technical changes to bring. Concerning strategy, I think my experience can be useful to her. When I started to play well, I had the most boring game you can imagine! Little by little, with the experience, my game evolved and at the end of my career I think I had become a more complete player. Tati doesn't have a "blooding" game but she still has a lot of things to learn. But it's normal. At 19 years old, every pro athlete doesn't know yet what he has to do. For the moment, Tati plays on her talent and, little by little, she has to become more professional."

"It's impossible at 19 years old to be 100% professional. At her age, I wanted to go out of tennis: I needed to see my friends, to play the guitar, to practice golf, to enjoy myself. It didn't stop me from being 100% focused on my tennis when I had to. For Tati, it's the same. When I have said that she has to become more professional, I don't mean that she has to renounce to everything else. It's not either training 5 or 6 hours a day. She has to better know herself, know how to nourish herself, how to be physically prepared...
Anyway, I feel that Tati really wants to work and that she is really receptive."

"I don't want to become a full-time coach! I think I would quickly have enough of it if I were on every tournament, 10 monthes out of 12.
Tatiana is sufficiently well surrounded on the circuit. As soon as she will have a precise program to follow, everything will go well."

hello

Here is a Tati article about her relationship with Mats ( from http://www.sport24.com/sport24_article_actualite_sportive_tennis__wta__zo om_sur_tatiana_golovin_wilander_golovin__ca_colle_ __18362.html )


Wilander-Golovin, ça colle !

La collaboration entre Mats Wilander et Tatiana Golovin, débutée il y a un peu plus d’une semaine, semble déjà porter ses fruits. Le Suédois prend son rôle de coach très à cœur et voudrait presque devenir son confident. La Française apprécie.

Par Bastien Aubert

Wilander presque tactile
«Let’s go Tat’». A l’entendre, on aurait presque l’impression que Mats Wilander connaît Tatiana Golovin depuis toujours. En tout et pour tout, ils se côtoient pourtant depuis dix petits jours. Leur histoire est d’ailleurs partie sur des bases rocambolesques. Alors que le début de leur collaboration devait débuter à Los Angeles, Tati s’est donnée une élongation à la cuisse et leur rencontre officielle sur le court a dû être avortée. C’est donc au Canada, à Toronto, que les deux parties ont pu mettre en pratique la théorie. Avec un succès considérable. Elle qui ressentait le besoin d’être coachée, voire chaperonnée, est servie avec le Suédois. Plus qu’un simple intermittent dans la carrière de la Française, celui-ci veut presque devenir un confident et veut savoir tout ce qui lui passe par la tête.

C’est toute cette forme d’ingérence qui a accéléré la perte des travaux dirigés de la Française avec des coaches chevronnés comme Brad Gilbert et Dean Goldfine et plait dorénavant à Golovin. Celle-ci a mûri et sait ce qui est bon pour elle depuis son expérience réussie avec Loïc Courteau au printemps dernier. Wilander peut ainsi se permettre le luxe de venir la voir sur le banc pour le fameux coaching entre chaque manche, chose dont Tati a pourtant toujours eu horreur. La tactique a autant surpris par sa rareté que par son efficacité contre Dominika Cibulkova : «Nous essayons actuellement de nous connaître l’un l’autre. C’est une manière utile d’y parvenir car en même temps, cela m’aide sur le court. Mats est venu à mes côtés pour que ce soit moi qui lui parle et non l’inverse. J’ai trouvé que c’était une bonne idée», avouait-elle sans rougir.

Nadal en exemple
Deux jours après, cette relation de confiance mutuelle fonctionnait à merveille devant Francesca Schiavone, qui avait récemment dégoutée la Tricolore en Fed Cup : «J’avais un très mauvais souvenir de ce match en Italie. Ici c’était un autre contexte, une nouvelle confrontation mais j’avais une terrible envie de revanche. J’avais mis au point une tactique de jeu très agressive avant le match et ça a marché. Elle m’avait posé beaucoup de problèmes le mois dernier et cette fois, je savais comment gagner», lâchait-elle après sa décapitation en règle (6/2 6/0). L’effet Wilander ? Tout porte à le croire, les deux personnalités semblant tirer dans le même sens. «Il est juste incroyable, il est vraiment brillant. En plus, il me raconte des petites anecdotes sur sa carrière, la manière dont il jouait. C’est vraiment amusant». Les compliments de la jeune femme trouvent un relais chez le principal intéressé : Nous avons pas mal de connaissances en commun et je me suis basé sur ce que ces personnes m’avaient dit à son sujet. Je connais beaucoup de choses sur elle et pour l’instant tout est vrai !» Avec ces bases, l’anciennne gloire du tennis mondial a donc rapidement mis le doigt sur les qualités et les défauts de sa protégée et son travail a été ciblé d’emblée.

Ainsi, il insiste énormément sur son revers et veut lui donner plus d’effet pour qu’elle «attaque la balle à la manière de Rafael Nadal et non plus qu’elle ne fasse que la pousser». Wilander lui demande également de venir achever ses points au filet et de ne plus tenter le diable avec un coup gagnant derrière la ligne de fond de court. Sur ce point là, il prend Federer en exemple et s’appuie donc ni plus ni moins sur les deux meilleurs joueurs du monde pour dicter sa théorie. La comparaison ne fait pas peur à la Française, qui n’hésite pas à aller dans son sens tout en demandant des conseils sur la gestion des points clés d’un match. Un chantier qui a sauté aux yeux lors de son duel perdu contre Jelena Jankovic, avec une prestance très inégale à la volée. Son chaperon devrait donc insister sur ce paramètre car leur collaboration devrait s’arrêter très tôt, comme leur contrat passé avec la FFT en fait état. Partie couper deux jours chez elle dans sa superbe villa floridienne, Tati reprendra contact avec lui pour préparer Flushing Meadows avant de mettre un terme à leur aventure si elle l’estime nécessaire. En attendant le verdict de la jeune femme, Wilander préfère se concentrer sur son job du moment et ne doute pas un seul instant de son potentiel : «Bon, c’est sûr qu’elle ne gagnera pas l’US Open cette année. En revanche, dans le futur, qui sait ce qui peut arriver ? Tat’ est douée, encore très jeune et même si elle a un peu stagné ces derniers mois, je lui prédis une belle carrière pour les six, sept années qui arrivent».

Georges Goven: "La défaite de Tatiana Golovin est une véritable déception. Globalement, son match face à Ahsha Rolle a été une véritable souffrance. Même si elle a réussi à se relâcher quelque peu au cours de la deuxième manche, elle n'a jamais été capable de se libérer totalement. Je l'ai croisée après son match, elle était effectivement très déçue d'autant plus que tout le monde et notamment Mats Wilander disait qu'elle était en très grande forme. La jeune Rolle, que je ne connaissais pas, est véritablement une joueuse très talentueuse, qui sert fort, qui a un bon coup droit en décalage et qui volleye bien. Elle a pris Tatiana à la gorge, la mettant constamment sur la défensive."

Report about Tati from Stuttgart ;)

A breath of fresh air

Stuttgart. Tatiana Golovin is a breath of fresh air in a world of stereotype, identi-twin tennis players. While many players walk a straight line and show little of their real character either on or off the court, Tatiana lets her bubbly personality shine through.

Take fashion. She has often worn interesting outfits, which have included hipster shorts that have defied gravity as they looked in imminent danger of falling down. Clearly, she likes clothes. "My style is young, fun, a little bit sexy and a little bit sophisticated. I try to mix it up a little," she said. "I think fashion is whatever you're comfortable with. I think you decide what to wear based on what your mood is and what you feel like."

She drew a bit of attention from the tabloid press at Wimbledon this year when she wore red underwear. Some players might have been offended, but not Tatiana. While some players chant the mantra that although they may look glamorous they are only interested in their tennis, Golovin is happy to make the most of her assets as a woman. She’s young, she’s relatively famous and successful, and she enjoys both what she’s doing and the attention she receives. “I won my first tournament in April (she added a second recently in Portoroz), and I've been top 20 for a while, so I think I have already proved myself in tennis although obviously I want to do a lot better. But if they focus on our clothes I think it's fun, too, because it is me and it's part of my personality. It comes in a whole package.”

Sounds like a fine, well-adjusted young lady to me. Honest and with no silly hang-ups. She’s definitely a player who is on the up, and only a couple of injuries have prevented her rising faster than she has. Last year she reached the quarter-finals of the 2006 US Open, the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix final and then, in April this year, she won that first title. It was a big one too, at Amelia Island, as she beat Venus Williams and Ana Ivanovic before overcoming defending champion Nadia Petrova (who she had lost to in the Porsche final last year).

“It was a wonderful week. I’d been waiting for that for a really long time and it finally came. I definitely played some of my best tennis. I have played that well before but never that consistently for the whole week. I learned a lot from that week. I have good memories and feelings from that and it’s going to get me far. But I was surprised I won my first tournament on clay because I’m usually better on faster surfaces. I think it was just time for me to win my first tournament. I was ready mentally and physically and it all came together.”

Then, just when she thought she was set fair, her second ankle injury kept her off the Tour again. “I think it was a little too much use,” she said. “It’s frustrating because it’s always happened when I’ve played well and I want to continue but I have to stop. But there are worse things that could happen.” That balance again.

As well as being well-balanced about the attention she receives, Tatiana also balances her tennis with a vast range of off-court interests. She likes cooking. “Yes I do, of course. All kind of stuff, especially anything to do with deserts. Chocolate. I try to cook at home, because we’re always at restaurants and eating room service at hotels so when you do have a kitchen it’s kind of nice to be there and to be able to mix and match everything.” And she likes an intriguing variety of food. Mexican AND Japanese? That’s a pretty big contrast. “Yes, but I think we just travel so much and we taste so many different cuisines that you have to get used to and like lots of different things,” she said.

Family is very important to Tatiana. When I asked her what a perfect day would consist of, she said they’d be very much involved. And when I queried what the best thing she’d ever bought was, expecting it to be a diamond ring or some expensive designer outfit, I got a surprise. Family was involved again, with something very simple. “The best thing I got was this really, really nice bouquet of flowers for my mum for Mother’s Day. It wasn’t that much, but she was so touched because I had it sent because I wasn’t there. It was just that I remembered it and it really meant a lot to her. I think it’s one of the nicest gifts you can do, when the other person really appreciates it.”

With Tatiana’s closeness to her family, to her parents, her sisters, her nephews and niece, her answer comes as no surprise when I question her on what she’d most like to do that she hasn’t done yet. “Oh, having kids, absolutely. All my sisters have little kids and I saw them being pregnant and it makes you want to be having kids.”

Such a desire for babies kind of leads on to wondering what attributes her ideal guy would need to have. “He would definitely have to be big and strong, an athlete,” she said. “But you always say you have some kind of thing you look for in a guy, but then when you meet that guy he’s completely different. But I’m going to say a good set of teeth, taller and stronger than me. And he’s got to be fun and understanding, because we have such a difficult life. So he’s got to be in sports as well so he can understand what we do. And definitely very patient.”

Henin Maintains Mastery Over Jankovic; Golovin Up Next

STUTTGART, Germany - Tatiana Golovin thwarted a championship showdown between the world's Top 2 players in Stuttgart on Saturday, as the semifinals of the $650,000 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix took the indoor hardcourts of the Porsche-Arena.

World No.1 Justine Henin lived up to her part of the bargain in the first semi of the day, beating Jelena Jankovic for the eighth time in their eight meetings. The top-seeded Henin was up 5-2 in the first set and had set point at 5-4, but needed a tie-break to close out her feisty No.3-seeded opponent; she then rallied from a 4-1 second set deficit en route to closing out a tough 76(2) 75 victory, extending her win streak to 15 matches.

"We always seem to have great fights and today was another tough one," Henin said. "There were a lot of ups and downs today. I stepped it up in the tie-break - I've been playing great in tie-breaks all year. I still feel a bit rusty after my time off after the US Open, but the conditions here are really suiting my game."

"Justine was too good today," Jankovic stated. "She always plays her best against me and raises her level at the important times. I'm going to keep trying, and one of these days those important points will go my way."

"There was a famous quote by a man player, like nobody beats me 20 times in a row - well I'll say nobody beats me 10 times in a row," added Jankovic, referring to the late Vitas Gerulatis' famous quote "Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row," which he said after beating Jimmy Connors after 16 straight losses.

The win was Henin's 15th straight, just one away from equalling her season-best 16-match win streak that ran from Roland Garros to the Wimbledon semifinals. Even more impressive about this streak is that she hasn't dropped a single set.

In the second semifinal of the day it was Golovin's turn to shine, bouncing world No.2 Svetlana Kuznetsova, 62 64. The players put on a serving display, firing a combined total of 14 aces to one double fault, but it was Golovin whose return game excelled; she converted on three break point chances while Kuznetsova coverted none. In the end, Golovin won for the third time in their four meetings.

"It's very satsifying," said Golovin, who finished runner-up in her only previous appearance here last year. "My serve and forehand were really on today; when that happens I'm difficult to beat. I knew I had to step up first in the rally, or she would kill me. I had a similar feeling in Amelia Island this year, when I started getting better and better with every match."

"That wasn't me; I made a lot of mistakes and had no emotion left," Kuznetsova said. "I think the Serena match took a lot out of me as I played some of my best tennis last night, and it was difficult to come back so quickly the next day."

The win was Golovin's 11th over a Top 10 player, nine of which have come over Russians. She moves through to her third Sony Ericsson WTA Tour final of the year, having taken the title the first two times, at Amelia Island and Portoroz.

Henin is 2-0 lifetime against Golovin but neither win has come easily, with Henin battling back from a break down in the second set to win their first encounter at Charleston in 2005, 76(4) 75, and going to three to beat her earlier this year at Paris [Indoors], 62 36 63.

"Golovin has nothing to lose tomorrow," Henin said. "When you're No.1 you have to be careful because everyone wants to beat you. She's very talented."

"Justine is the No.1 player by far, and I have nothing to lose," Golovin said. "I'm going to go out there, fight for it and enjoy it."

Article in L'Equipe today :

Tatiana hopes to be in that shape until the end of season because her main goal is now to finish this year inside the Top15.
She said that she has 2 or 3 tournaments to play : Zurich, Quebec and maybe Linz if she is not tired.
The situation about Mats Wilander seems not really clear at the moment as Tati said she is divided between Miami where she has the sun, her friends and her apartment and France where lives her family (Strasbourg where lives her sister Oxana and Paris where lives her mother and her other sister Olga).
So the situation is kind of complicated.

Oh, she said that she didn't enter the court thinking about what happened next year .... but at a point of the match (6/3 2/1, 40/0), she saw those pictures of her lying down with that terrible pain and it kept in her mind till the end. She only managed to get her concentration back at 4/4.

No worries, she only feared of being injured again ;) this explains why she had little difficulties in the middle of the play.

She also said that she didn't play a lot between Stuttgart and Zürich as she needed more than everything to rest. It wasn't easy to find some good sensations as the balls are like flying there :lol:.

Golovin succeeds in her search for consistency
Semi win puts her in Top 15 for first time
By Abe Kuijl, Special to ********************


FROM THE ZURICH OPEN –When Tatiana Golovin stormed through the rankings in her breakthrough year in 2004, moving up from No. 354 at the start of the season, all the way to No. 27, the fun-loving 16-year-old was rapidly becoming the new it-girl of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Now, three years later, she is on the verge of breaking the Top 15 for the first time in her career, a feat long overdue.

Golovin reached the finals of a Tier I event for the first time in her career. She beat Maria Kirilenko, Ana Ivanovic and saw Marion Bartoli retire with a knee injury on Friday, before she convincingly routed Francesca Schiavone in the semifinals on Saturday 6-0, 6-4. “It feels great [to reach my first Tier I final], but I don’t think I’m realising it quite yet. The past weeks have been going so fast and I’ve been playing so many matches. I’m trying to stay focused and not really think about it. When the season is over I’ll probably realise that I’m going to have a lot of points to defend next year.”


Golovin has developed into one of the best movers on tour, and her ground strokes are solid. She likes to run around her backhand, to unleash her biggest weapon, the forehand. Her serve might not match the Williams sisters for pace, but it shouldn’t be underestimated, as she gets a lot of free points off it, especially going down the tee. The main obstacle holding her back has been her head, as she hasn’t been able to produce her best tennis yet in the big events, which is also why Tati had difficulties following up on her excellent breakthrough year.


“The first year you’re a rookie, you just go out there, nobody knows you and you think everything is great,” Golovin said. “But the next year you have to come back and defend everything, and the players start to know you and how they have to play against you, so it’s definitely tougher.”
It wasn’t until the beginning of this season, that Golovin won her first title. In Amelia Island, she consecutively beat Venus Williams, Ivanovic and Nadia Petrova to win the Tier II event. But to Golovin, winning her first tournament after having been expected to do so much earlier, did not make her achievement feel like a relief. “I think it was more of a relief to play three top players and beat them all in one week. Before, it was kind of that consistency that I was lacking. Being able to do that gave me more confidence, so I’m not sure it was a relief [to win my first tournament], but it definitely was a boost of confidence.”


Shortly after her maiden title, Golovin injured her right ankle and sat out the entire clay-court season. She returned at Wimbledon, but couldn’t impress on the lawns, as she fell in the second round to Austrian up-and-comer Tamira Paszek. Her results over the American summer were disappointing as well, apart from a semifinal showing in Toronto, where she was beaten by Jelena Jankovic. At the US Open, the Frenchwoman was upset by Ahsha Rolle in the first round.


It was during the American hard-court season that Golovin started working with Mats Wilander, a temporary agreement, which ended after the US Open in New York. “I think it was good,” Golovin says about the partnership, “but we didn’t really have enough time to work together. So I don’t think I can say too much about our time spent together because it was too short. It was supposed to be a month, but then I got injured and it got cut back to three weeks, and then I lost in the first round of the US Open, so it pretty much got cut down to two weeks.”


She hasn’t really spoken to Wilander anymore after the US Open, but believes they can team up again in the near future. “I know he cares about my tennis. I know he believes in me. When the time is right, I’m sure we’ll be able to get things together and maybe he’ll be able to come to some tournaments and we can practice together.”


Golovin entered a small Tier IV tournament in Slovenia the week after the season’s final Grand Slam event, where she captured the title and refound her confidence. She went on to reach the quarterfinals indoors in Luxembourg, and progressed to the final in Stuttgart, where she beat Anna Chakvetadze and Svetlana Kuznetsova, before falling to Justine Henin in three sets.


“I’m really happy [with my season],” Golovin said. “Especially with the way it’s ending, because I started off really well and then I got injured and it was really hard mentally, and physically too, to get back up there and play the top players. I’m lucky I was able to get back to my level, because I also could have had just a really bad season after my injuries. I’ve worked really hard to get back and it’s paying off right now.”


STUTTGART ALL OVER AGAIN
Golovin’s opponent in Sunday’s final will be a familiar face, as she will take on Henin, just like in Stuttgart two weeks ago. The Belgian came from a set down in her semifinal against Nicole Vaidisova, and had to fight hard to advance 3-6, 6-3, 7-5. She looked a little shaky at times, especially on her forehand. The No. 1 failed to capitulate on the first of two match points, leading 5-3 in the third, and dropped her own serve in the next game. She broke again at 5-all, hitting a forehand winner after successfully attacking Vaidisova’s second serve, and successfully closed out the match trying to serve it out a second time.


Golovin believes the experience of playing Henin in Stuttgart two weeks ago will help her in Sunday’s final. “I think it’s going to be pretty important, because I know how I played to beat her in the first set, and I know what I did to lose the next two sets.”


But when you’re playing the best player in the world, knowing what you have to do is hardly a guarantee for success. “I think everybody knows how to play her,” Golovin said, “but you still end up losing, because she’s so tough. It’s like she never feels bad. Doesn’t she have like these mornings when she just wakes up and feels awful? I mean, what’s wrong with her you, you know (laughs)? No matter how well you play against her, she still ends up winning." Golovin may have forgotten the months when cytomegalovirus forced Henin to miss much action in 2004 and 2005.


Golovin believes one of the keys to beat Henin is staying composed. “I think [in Stuttgart] I showed my emotions just a little bit too much. She saw I was getting frustrated in the second set, and that just really pumped her up, and then I kind of got down on myself. I need to stay very positive. In the first set I was controlling the points and I’ll have to do that again tomorrow. You can’t give her anything, because then she’ll just take control and stay on top of you.”


Whether or not Golovin will win the tournament in Zurich, she will crack the Top 15 for the first time when the new rankings come out on Monday. If she wins the event, she will be in an excellent spot to clinch a Top-10 position in Linz next week, as she has no points to defend.


Does Tati believe she’s ready to become one of the elite women? “I think so. I think I’ve still got to put in a lot of work, and be consistent, because top players play well in every tournament. They don’t lose to players that are lower ranked than them in early rounds, so that’s just what I need to work on. To be a hundred percent every week and be able to beat the players that are behind me. Even during days when you’re not playing well, you’ve still got to work, and not just say, ‘Well, I’ll be better tomorrow.’ ”

Tatiana blogs from Linz. You can read it at the WTA tour homepage every day. :bounce:

LINZ, Austria - Tatiana Golovin's star has been rising faster than ever before since the fall began - the 19-year-old Frenchwoman has won her second Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title at Portoroz, reached finals at Stuttgart and Zürich and this week cracked the Top 15. Now, fresh off the overnight train from Zürich, she adds blogging to the list, straight from the Generali Ladies Linz in Linz, Austria.

-----

Monday, October 22, 2007

Welcome to my blog!

I'm coming off a really tough week in Zürich. I'm really excited to have reached the final, obviously. Justine is so tough; she keeps you from playing your best, and so she's really tough to beat. The more experience I can get against players of her level the better. I'm just relieved it's over because I've been playing so much the last four or five weeks. Now I can rest a little before starting in Linz...

One thing I'm really happy about this fall is that I've been keeping very healthy. I missed quite a few tournaments this year because of my ankle (I've had a few accidents with it before), but I'm so much fitter than I was before and it's paying off. I'm preparing better, recovering better and playing better. I'm just really happy how things are going these days.

So after the final and all of my post-match press I got a massage on my shoulder and then we left the tournament pretty late last night. We went out for dinner and later on boarded the train...

I'm so tired of taking planes. For most of the year we need them to travel, but when I'm in Europe I like to have a bit of a change. I love the train. I'm travelling with some of my family and my physio, and we had a really nice time. From Zürich to Linz you go through the mountains, and you know it because your ears start popping :) I'm not sure what cities or countries the train passed through exactly, but sometimes I don't really pay too much attention to the things around me. At the trophy ceremony in Zürich I said I enjoyed being in Stuttgart...

Anyway, we got to Linz at like 7am today and had breakfast, then I took a nap. We all went into the city for a little bit and did some shopping this afternoon - it's very cold here so I got some hats, some furry ones, so those should work! I'm not doing a lot tonight - we'll probably just watch something here, maybe some Prison Break... I need to catch up on my sleep tonight. I usually sleep at least 10 hours a night, and I only got about six hours last night. I like my sleep!

I'm looking forward to playing here in Linz. I'm on a good path right now and I just want to keep going. I feel confident and I'm playing well. That doesn't mean I'll be winning all the time, but I would love to finish this season well.

I'm also looking forward to this, my first blog!

Talk to you all tomorrow...

Tatiana

Hello again everybody,
I'll start at the beginning... I had a run in the morning next to the river, which was really nice. It's a little chilly outside but I like that - I love that you go out and your cheeks go all pink! Living in Miami I obviously don't get that at all. I'm really trying to enjoy the change in climate while I'm here in Europe. Another thing I really like about winter here in Europe is that they roast and eat these nuts that fall off the trees - in French it's called Marron, but I'm not sure it's chestnuts - but it's the ones that you see a lot around Christmas time, and you can make jam out of it too... anyway, that's not something you see in Miami!

I went into the city afterwards and found this cute little store that sold things like crystals and beads. I also found this amazing Bob Marley CD - "Forever Loving Jah" - it has been in my head for a while now. I was so excited I found it. After my little trip into the city I got back and had a nap. Then I went to practice but I didn't serve, as I'm still trying to save the shoulder for when I play...

I wasn't feeling too great today - I woke up from my nap with a headache and I was thinking of not going to tonight's player party because of that, but I went anyway, and it was really nice. I only stayed for half an hour though because the headache was bothering me. When we came back my physio gave me a head massage then put some Tiger Balm on my face and now I'm feeling much better. I'm pretty sensitive to the weather actually, and I think the pressure was pretty high earlier in the day, but then it rained, so it's pretty much gone now, and now I'm writing to you with Tiger Balm all over my face.

Now I really like this Bob Marley song, but he's not really one of my favorites. I did fall in love with this song though, and when I saw the CD I felt I just had to get it. I actually love all kinds of music - my sister played the piano when I was little and we had a lot of classical music playing, but I was also raised around a lot of '80s music like Metallica, Guns N' Roses, other things... it was definitely a mixed environment. I just got a James Blunt CD and I've listened to that a lot.
Tomorrow I play my first match of the week against Eleni Daniilidou. I played her a few years ago and lost to her both times. Hopefully I've improved since then but she's tough - she has a very clean game, serves well, good groundstrokes and likes coming in. I think I know the kinds of things she'll do, so hopefully I will be ready tomorrow. I just have to play my best and we'll see what happens.

I'm sort of winding down right now as I'm going to be going to sleep soon, but you wouldn't think it if you saw me. I have the TV on, music on, phone on, I'm reading my book... I just can't focus when it's silent! Like when I was going to school, I had to have everything on. Right now, "Letters from Iwo Jima" - the Clint Eastwood movie - is on the TV, I've got 50 Cent playing on my iTunes and I'm reading a book called "The Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer. Normally I don't read sci-fi, but one of my friends recommended it. It's like a vampire love story. I can't really relate to it obviously, but it's nice. It's part of a trilogy I think.

Check out www.golovin-attitude.com (http://www.golovin-attitude.com/) - I don't have an official website but this guy has done an awesome job with the site. It's always up to date with the latest news and pictures, and I'm really impressed!!

Well unfortunately I won't be able to continue at the Generali Ladies Linz this week because I injured my knee in my match today. I'm really disappointed - it sucks that the season had to end this way for me. I guess it's just my body's way of telling me that's enough and I've played too much. It could have been worse though. I'm able to walk and it doesn't seem to be too long-term. And at least now I can look forward to some time off and some well-deserved rest, and get ready for 2008.

We're going to try to fly out to Paris in the morning. I've got some things I'd like to do out there, then I'll head back to Miami after that. I'm really looking forward to going back home - I haven't been back there since the US Open. I'll probably take a vacation to the Caribbean, see some friends... just try to enjoy myself!

I've gotten some really nice comments about the blog this week. Hopefully all of you enjoyed it. I try to do as much as I can to give back to the fans, and the blog is a great way to let people know who we are. We don't just think about tennis 24/7 - and this is a great way of showing that. And I'm so thankful for all of the support from all of you; I've had some tough times this year, and to have people out there caring and supporting you helps keep you positive in those times.

So another season ends... you know, despite what happened today I'm so happy with my season. I was injured in the middle of the year but I played some good tennis at the beginning and then came back strong at the end. So now I can take some time off to get myself fresh for Australia. I'll spend some time in Europe and am probably going to the mountains in November, so I have a few things planned... I'll share that with you next year as I look forward to blogging again!

Oh and I've attached a picture of me trying on the snow shoes I won on Tuesday night at the player party...

Take care, thanks for all your support and talk to you soon :)

Je pense rentrer en France dès que mon état le permet afin de récupérer auprès de ma famille et mes proches."

Sorry for mistakes, I come from a French speaking country.

Coming from Marseille to Bordeaux wednesday to help Yannick Noah for his charity association "Fête du mur" Tatiana Golovin, operated for a groin cyst and appendicitis March 12th, came back to training. "Since last Saturday" specifies the girlfriend of Samir Nasri, the Marseille footballer she has supported at the Velodrome Stadium. ("I was there for the match against Lyon!"). "I'm doing physical training and I play with Jerôme Bianchi (physio of the French Fed Cup team), but I'm still not allowed to run. Monday I will begin a real training at Roland Garros with the Fed cup girls, but of course I won't be ready for the match(April 26th and 27th in Japan). I should play the Cagnes-sur-mer tournament(ITF tournament) and in Berlin if everything is okay." For the moment the Frenchwoman does not call for help her "official" coach Glen Shaap, based in Switzerland. "Because of all what happened it's not a topical question anymore"

Extract from a Goven's interview :

Où en est Tatiana Golovin qui ne figure pas dans cette liste ?

Tatiana a rejoué avec nous pour la première fois hier (lundi 14 avril, NDLR). Elle a joué avec Léolia Jeanjean. On a fait en sorte que ce soit un entraînement de reprise doux. Elle a passé une heure et demie avec un peu de physique avec Paul Quétin, et des gammes au niveau du jeu. Je lui ai demandé de jouer en timing, tranquillement. Elle était contente parce que ça avait l’air d’aller. Maintenant, on va voir comment elle se sent ce matin. Après, elle a vraiment besoin de temps. A un moment donné, dans l’euphorie de l’après-opération où tout s’était bien passé, elle imaginait qu’elle pourrait peut-être être prête pour la Fed Cup. Mais c’est beaucoup trop juste. Il faut prendre son temps, ne pas aller trop vite.

Tatiana is feeling very good and started monday to hit the ball with Léolia Jeanjean, a very young promising french girl.

Young Love: Golovin spotted with Noah, Nasri

www.tennis.com

By Sarah Alvanipour
Photo by FRANCK FIFE/AFP/Getty Images

France had 16 women competing at Wimbledon, but one of their top-ranked players, Tatiana Golovin, was noticeably absent from the draw. While she also missed Roland Garros, the Frenchwoman turned Florida-transplant was on hand for Lacoste?s 75th year anniversary celebration (she is sponsored by the French icon) but was no where to be seen in London.

The 20-year-old has been nursing a back injury since May and while she was hailed as one of France?s next great hopes and an up-and-comer on the WTA Tour, lately her personal life has been making more headlines than her tennis career (she is 3-5 for the season).

A June 8th issue of Cover magazine in France ran ?exclusive? photographs of Golovin in Paris out and about with none other than Joakim Noah, the Chicago Bull forward and son of tennis legend Yannick Noah. The two were pictured walking together and sharing a kiss. Golovin, known for her flair for fashion, was pictured in a white tank top and an oversized red Lacoste crocodile necklace in one of the photos and was wearing the same necklace at the Lacoste celebration during the same timeframe, supporting the speculation that the photographs were recent.

Nothing wrong with scoring love when it?s not in a tennis match, but the Moscow-born blonde was photographed watching her boyfriend Samir Nasri, a French midfielder from Marseille, at the UEFA Euro 2008 in Switzerland apparently just days after photogs snapped her with Noah.

Does that count as a double fault or two aces?

The incidents may have gone unnoticed had Noah and Nasri not made news of their own recently. Nasri is sitting on the cusp of nabbing a transfer to British team Arsenal reportedly worth about £12 million ($24 million) while Noah also made headlines earlier this summer when he was arrested for possession of marijuana in Florida.

Golovin is hoping to be back on the circuit in time for the U.S. hard court swing and the Beijing Olympic Games.

Joakim Noah, Samir Nasri, Tatiana Golovin Love Triangle

http://ballhype.com/story/joakim_noah_samir_nasri_tatiana_golovin_love_trian gle/

Perhaps, the great time has had a lot to do with French tennis player Tatiana Golovin . Golovin, who withdrew from Wimbledon, and Noah were spotted as Page 6 likes to say "getting cozy" on June 8 (pictured above). Complicating matters though is European soccer star, Samir Nasri, commonly referred to as the "new Zidane". Golovin and Nasri were all over each other in May and on June 13 (5 days...


*(..my computer wouldn't let me read the rest)

On one article there were many replies, almost every one calling her a slut or whore. It was sad to see because she's so undeserving of that. Nobody even knows the whole story behind this and she's known as the slut of the WTA, and we're not helping this much.

a Tati article from yahoo sports (i was surprised to see it too):

MONTREAL (AP)—Tatiana Golovin (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/565/;_ylt=AlV8uaUq0iAACAmYviVgTbYgv7YF) has pulled out of next week’s Rogers Cup event in Montreal, Tennis Canada announced Wednesday.
Golovin, ranked 24th in the world, injured her back at a tournament in Germany in May and has been kept off the court.

“I regret that I will not be able to take part in the Rogers Cup next week in Montreal.,” the 20-year-old Frenchwoman said. “My rehabilitation is progressing and I am still hoping to compete in the Olympics next month.”

Also, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario had to cancel her plans to travel to Montreal for the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The two-time singles champion has been ill with acute gastroenteritis and will remain in Spain to receive treatment.

http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news;_ylt=Aq3W70Xfxsn_Cp1T4pIj81s4v7YF?slug=ap-golovininjured&prov=ap&type=lgns

i think the key words in Tati's quote is that she hopes to compete in the Olympics, it seems that she still doesn't know. but maybe i'm reading too much into that...

Short translation please?

Slutati
Jul 27th, 2008, 09:44 AM
I used an online translator :lol: and this is what i got. I'm sure GA will translate it later :bounce:

New more precise concerning the state of form of Tatiana are appeared aujourd’hui in THE Equipe. To two weeks of the JO, the young Frenchwoman is not not yet in measure to say if yes or not she will be on the part to Peking… but she loses nothing of his tenacity and of his craving to beat itself to return: "My back, this is a big thing. I did not play seriously since Australia, in fact. I recommenced four times, never with a positive impression. Then, big blows of blues. I was able to train fifteen days with Bollettieri before arriving in France this week. I have so envies of there to go that I would go well on a leg. I fight "engraves" against the watch… "

Tatiana trained this Friday to the Tennis Club of Paris and according to Georges Goven the three-colored one budged well and typed well the bullet: "Tatiana gets ready. We will help it. Will she be ready on time? We have until August 2 to put back it on foot. I will give him my opinion but this is she that will decide to the end. If she cannot go to Peking, the next one on the list, this is Aravane Rezaï. "

So basically she's not sure if she can play the Olympics yet and they will try to get ready on time if they can't Aravane Rezai will take her place :(...
Oh well

Surely better this way. There wouldn't have been any point to play the last events of this year since she needs more than a month to find her best tennis.
She shouldn't fall from top 100 I think, right :unsure:. Anyway she will surely have a SR. Tati will be fresh mentally and physically for 2009. She may like the challenge of rising again from very low to very high!

Sep 16th, 2008, 09:00 PM
Well, I told everyone she would skip the rest of the year and end up around 250 and gain a protected rankign after missing three slams and six months, but no one believed me. :lol:

It's really nice to see Tati being smart and making, IMO, the right decision. It's also very encouraging to see she will be working with Loic Courteau. I saw him practicing with Amelie in AI and he's very encouraging and seems like someone who would stick with you through the good and the bad (Ame was having a terrible session at the time).

It's too bad her ranking didn't fall this year as Tati is on the Gold list, meaning she can recieve an unlimited amount (or a high number) of WCs into events. if her ranking should fall. Maybe they will put her in the list like they did for other lower-ranked players this year who had been higher ranked, like Sugiyama, I think.

It's gonna be a tough road back, but I have faith in Tati. We all know how talented she is. We have been there through thick and thin and have never given up. This is just a bump in the road but Tati will rise to the top of women's tennis where she belongs. She's only twenty and has so much potential that, bar injuries, will lead her to bigger and better things. Hopefully she has a nice off-season and comes back ready and strong next year.

Allez, Tati. :)

Adieu Golovin?

I spotted the always-dashing Tatiana Golovin zipping around at an adidas promotion yesterday and caught up with the former top 15 player who has been MIA from the WTA circuit for more than a year. Golovin didn’t use the word retirement, but it sounded as if her career could be over before her 22nd birthday.


“I try not to think about it,” said the Russian-born Frenchwoman, who reached a ranking high of No. 12 in February 2008 before chronic back inflammation sidelined her career.


Golovin, who last played a singles match more than a year ago at Berlin (she lost in the first round to Caroline Wozniacki), is not hitting at all and trying a combination of rehab, treatment and rest to heal her back. It’s not an injury that surgery can cure and little has worked.


“It’s hard to handle, but we’re doing everything we can,” she said. “It’s such an important part of the body that you can’t come back unless you’re fully fit.”


The camera-loving player said she grew tired of setting deadlines for a return – deadlines she continually failed to meet. “Now, I’d just rather take my time and when the time is right I’ll come back,” she said. “It’s just that it’s been so long and the doctors aren’t telling me that there’s a certain time that it’s going to get better, so I have to keep my options open. If you’re body is giving up on you, you have to do your best and try to stay positive.”


Fittingly, Golovin is focusing her energies elsewhere. She’s dabbling in TV, taking classes and ramping up her charity work. She did some spots for Tennis Channel last week and is working for France 2 for Roland Garros, the official tournament broadcaster. She’s taking classes in international relations in London to be close to her boyfriend, the Arsenal soccer player Samir Nasri. And she wants to do more outreach work, which she has already started as an ambassador for the UNESCO-WTA joint program to promote gender equality.


Golovin, who reached the 2006 U.S. Open quarterfinals, owns two WTA titles, and has earned almost $2 million in prize money, still believes she can return. At 21, that's not unrealistic. “No, I haven’t given up,” she said.

http://www.hellocoton.fr/tatiana-golovin-une-infirmiere-de-charme-pour-son-amoureux-samir-nasri-559607

Alors que Samir Nasri, 22 ans, l'ancien attaquant de l'OM (Olympique de Marseille), manque le début du championnat anglais auquel il devait participer avec son équipe d'Arsenal ainsi que les matchs qualificatifs pour la Coupe du monde 2010, il peut compter sur le soutien de sa compagne, la charmante Tatiana Golovin.

Blessé lors d'un entraînement en Autriche, durant lequel il s'est fracturé le péroné, le joueur ne devrait pas regagner les terrains avant au moins huit semaines.

Cela "tombe bien", puisque sa fiancée, la sexy tenniswoman Tatiana Golovin, elle-même éloignée des cours de tennis par une affection inflammatoire à la colonne vertébrale, va pouvoir s'occuper de lui.

C'est ainsi que le couple a été surpris dans les rues de Paris, clopin-clopant, par l'Equipe Mag. Afin de faire un peu de shopping, Samir s'était muni de ses béquilles, tandis que Tatiana poussait un fauteuil roulant au cas où son amoureux se fatiguerait.

Tatiana, qui a commenté son premier Roland-Garros sur France Télévisions, et qui rêve à terme de devenir ministre des Sports (si, si, si), met vraiment un point d'honneur à s'occuper de son chéri, avec qui elle est en couple depuis avril 2008 et avec qui elle vit à Londres.

S'aimer pour le meilleur et pour le pire, n'est-ce pas ça le véritable amour ?!

While Samir Nasri, 22, former striker of the OM (Olympique de Marseille), missing the start of the French championship in which he was involved with his Arsenal team and the qualifying matches for World Cup 2010 he can count on the support of his companion, the lovely Tatiana Golovin.

Injured during training in Austria, during which he fractured his fibula, the player should not return to land until at least eight weeks.

It "falls", since his girlfriend, the sexy tenniswoman Tatiana Golovin, itself far from the tennis courts by a inflammatory disease of the spine, will take care of him.

Thus, the couple were caught in the streets of Paris, Clopin-Clopas by the Task Mag. In order to do a little shopping, Samir had brought his crutches, while Tatiana was pushing a wheelchair when her lover gets tired.

Tatiana, who said his first Roland Garros, France Televisions, and dreams of eventually becoming Minister for Sport (si, si, si), is truly an honor to care for her baby, with whom she will not stop since April 2008 and with whom she lives in London.

Love for better or for worse, is not it true love!
