At the conclusion of New Haven, Anastasia Myskina could wait no longer for the lazy tournament director of the ATC tour. And held one after the Final today.
M: Hello, Anastasia, what is this immediate press conference about?
Anastasia: This is about my future with the ATC tour.
M: What specifically, retirement?
Anastasia: Basically. I am retiring the old me, my old habits. When I got to #1 I started slacking off and half-assing practices, not really fighting out there on the court and giving all that I can give. It needs to change.
M: What do you plan to do?
Anastasia: I am recommitting myself. I am not in good form right now. I want to have new game plans for each week. Long practice sessions each day. I want to be where I was. I have 2 slams and was one of the longest running and dominant #1's on the tour. I want my success back. I can barely win back-to-back matches anymore. I need to just focus. I don't expect great things immediately because the US Open and Indoor Season are on my worst surfaces. But for next season, I have big hopes and aspirations and want to achieve them. I am thinking ahead to next year already. I just want to find my game for the rest of this season.
M: What about the US Open?
Anastasia: I have great memories there. My incredible win there in Season 5. I remember fighting my ass off that entire event. I am not so good on those quick hardcourts, but I just fought for everything. I won all 4 of my matches 7-5 in the third. And then that Final where I saved 3 Championship Points against me. It was a phenomenal feeling to pull that match off and win my second Slam. It was just amazing. And I want that again. I want to fight for everything out there again. I want to feel that amazing feeling again, but the US Open will surely be too soon for it to happen again. I'd love to reclaim glory again there, but I most likely won't. The tour is a little weaker now than it was then, but still I am not in good shape with my game. I have a lot I need to work on. But in Season 8, expect to be seeing Myskina making deep runs into the events.
No more questions. Thank you.
Beware, bitches. Every week I am sending new points now. I am going to save this tour once again!
