It would be desirable to win as much as possible


has not passed also day after Anastasia Myskina`s victory on Roland Garros as it, having returned to Moscow, has pleased on the interrogation made by the correspondent - Sports Afsati Dzhusojti.

In Paris I already have looked at all
- After such loud triumph you, probably, stay in an euphoria condition?
- yes is not present! I perfectly realise that in two weeks one more tournament of the Grand Slam will begin Wimbledon. It would be desirable to act too there well, therefore euphoria will soon end.
- earlier on Roland Garros you played four times and for all this time have won only one match. What happens this time?
- in the previous my unsuccessful arrivals to Paris I have looked there at all - Louvre, a cathedral of the Parisian Mother of god, on Ejfelevu a tower got. And in general, I do not know that there I yet did not see. Has bothered (laughs). This time it was necessary to concentrate only on tennis.
- you do not love soil courts?
- I too so thought earlier. It was found out that was mistaken.
- looking at how you played the first week of tournament, nobody could assume that you will pass so far. Than you explain so prompt improvement of game in process of approach of decisive matches?
- the first week was the extremely difficult. Psychologically first of all. When on the same tournament constantly you lose, already simply it you are afraid. I, of course, knew that basically I can play well, but here only not so trusted in it. This psychological barrier it was necessary to overcome, get used to that I win. And, of course, in the beginning of tournament I played at all so raskovanno, as then.
- What match was the most difficult?
- against Svety Kuznetsovoj. I even would name it almost that solving. Light after all soil coverings plays simply super, and to cope it very difficultly. And win it against me could - remember after all that at it was matchbol. But I as - that have extended it a match, and after it there was a surprising belief in the forces.
- Shamil Tarpischev said that you were a little helped by weather. The ground was crude enough and consequently it was more slowly that to you on a hand.
- Perhaps, and so. But to a final courts have dried out and were not more slowly, than usually. So Dementevoj I have won against Lena not at the expense of weather. Here, I can praise myself, business in other. I managed to be approached to game competently. I know its weak and strengths very well - the same as also it mine. But it could not consult with the nerves, I could. As a result I have managed to use its weaknesses, and at it it has not turned out. I think, only from - for it I have won.
- and what weaknesses at it?
- well, it not a secret. The first giving. And nerves still. When it is nervous, supposes many errors.
- and at you?
- too giving. Over this element I still should work much. But at the given stage I submitted, of course, much better, than Lena.
that else about itself to tell the bad? With psychological stability, ability to maintain pressure too problems. This time it was possible to master nerves, but it is necessary, that it turned out constantly. In general, here too is over what to work.
- truth cried before the ending?
- yes.
- Long?
- is not present. Time was not to cry long. It was short enough vyplesk emotions, but in time. Thank God, what not on court.
- ceremony of rewarding has seemed a little bit to the sad. You, at least, were not similar to a triumpher in any way.
- well, probably. But you know, I after all the first time have appeared in such situation and, fairly to tell, did not know what to do. I have been simply shocked and, to admit, the only thing about what thought, so it of that, as though to be washed off therefrom faster. And as I could rejoice roughly, if Lena - my close girlfriend. To me after all it was sad that it was necessary it here so to afflict. Though how many time it beat me, not to count at all (laughs).
- From outside it seemed that you with Elena even try not to look against each other.
- already I do not remember, but, probably, yes, and was. Though have departed quickly enough. After game have met and have gone together to have dinner.
- but at restaurant you have sat down for different tables.
- well so it has turned out, the restaurant very small was, and I also was late. Simply it has not turned out to sit down together. So no reefs here are present. And after restaurant we have together spent evening.
- on a meeting with Vladimir Putin too have together gone?
- certainly. It at the airport directly was. The president has told that is madly glad and happy that in Russia there are such sportsmen.
- From you long enough waited for the big victories, but all of them did not come in any way, and year one and a half you and at all played last below the possibilities. What happens now?
  - do not forget that in 2000 I had to transfer serious enough operation on a foot. And I have passed almost year, and then was long restored. Many thought that at me in general already it will turn out nothing, even advised with tennis to fasten. But I persistently trained. And thanks my trainer which has supported me during such difficult moment.
- that the most difficult in life of the professional tennis player?
- a season very long. You come on tournament, you are adjusted on it. And though you know that then there will be more many competitions, all the same think: here now I will play - and everything, it becomes easier. And it is then found out that is necessary again where - that to go and make a fresh start. This zatsiklennost simply exhausts. Sometimes, truth, is possible to catch a rhythm, and any more do not notice that competitions go a continuous stream. And then it bothers, and all!
- that all?
- you spit on all and you cease to play. And what it is necessary to do?

I Hope that did not become the bore
- you, by the way, as like free time to spend?
- I prefer to sit with friends at good restaurant - silently and easy.
- and what kitchen prefer?
- house. Very much I love pelmeni in any kind in any place.
- and prepare?
- very seldom and it is not enough, but it would be desirable to learn.
- never it was necessary to regret what became the tennis-player?
- - and who asked me? Tennis in general there was not my idea. In six years it is impossible to choose a way, parents for me and have solved all.
- instead of it would be desirable to tell to parents: Lag behind me with the foolish tennis ?
- very much it would be desirable. I after all in the group - still in spartakovskoj to school - never the leader was - so, serednjachok - and lost often. Here then also it would be desirable to throw all. Then as - that so, gradually our year, 1981 - j, began to dominate. But besides I became the fourth - the fifth, never was the first.
- remember the first children`s you children`s or youthful tournament?
- I remember perfectly. It was in Djakarta. In the ending of tournament for girls till 18 years I have won against Lena Dementevoj. To us with it was then on 16.
- In the ending of the first adult tournament you have besides beaten the girlfriend.
- yes. It too was in 1997 in Batumi. But these victories about what do not speak. We with Lena one million times already have with each other played, and the account of personal meetings approximately equal.
- well and now on you also cargo of responsibility of the winner lies. A lath so have highly lifted up, and anybody will already not forgive defeats. Will consult?
- know, I am not afraid of burden of leadership. I simply very accurately understand that it is much easier to climb up top, than to be kept on it. And I have a steady aspiration to prove to everything that I not a something ephemeral that has come for a long time.
- After a victory in Paris you have risen on the third position in rating WTA. It is a limit or can threaten on bolshee?
- I Can, certainly. At least, now it is much more real, than still one year ago. I will repeat, I am assured of myself, I would like to win as much as possible. And the purpose - absolutely concrete - at me is: the first racket of the world. To it I will go, that it costed.
- That is you believe, what leaders of female tennis - sisters Williams, the Belgian duet of Kim Klijsters and Zhjustin Enen - Ardenness - any more those?
- at all those.
- also what with them happens?
- the Reason of recession in their game that they considered themselves invincible. It to a lesser degree concerns Belgians, their problems are in many respects caused also by traumas. But here sisters Williams have precisely decided that can beat all one left, and, as consequence, simply rested on laurels. And in tennis such it is impossible to allow itself. Other girls train, torn forward and when it drops out to play against leaders, give all the best completely. And if you are not ready to a match where - that has faked all it will be shown on court. Williams it also occurs to sisters.
- how much you have changed since then how became a world scale star? All of you same Nastja who was five - six years ago, or already another?
- human qualities absolutely same remained - at least, so it seems to me. Though it is better to ask my friends. I hope that I did not become neither the bore, nor arrogant, any there star, I remain the normal person and in clouds I do not soar.
- probably, the circle of your interests is not limited to tennis.
- is not present, certainly. At me, truth, is not present any hobby to which I would be given with all the heart. Interests usual. Well, what interests at youth happen? With friends to communicate, dance, where - that to descend. Though wait. I also study!
- where?
- In physical culture Academy. There too it is necessary to appear.
- When last time there were? Tails are not present?
- Before Roland Garros. Session at us. And tails are not present, I watch it. And in general, if seriously often I catch myself on thought that a little bit I come off real life. The tennis world, it after all very small. We cook in the copper and we do not notice the huge world in which occur both ridiculous, and terrible things. Sooner or later it is necessary to face this world seriously, and very much it would be desirable to be ready to it.
- and when expect to join the world? In sense - how much you still will suffice in tennis?
- I do not know, nenamnogo. Such life strongly exhausts. Here remember leaving from tennis Martiny Hingis. Fans speak till now About this history bewildered. And I can tell that I understand to Martin, I understand, why it has left. I understand also Anju Kurnikova why it has finished. It is very heavy, it is mad psychological loading. The most important thing that you one. Always. That is if with a command sport you can be helped by your partners, here you only with themselves. It is very difficult.
- why with itself, and how the trainer? And the father with you like would go on tournaments.
- the father with me does not go any more. Simply it is not necessary any more, time has come. And the trainer is nevertheless not absolutely that.
- By the way, proceeding from what criteria tennis players usually choose to themselves the trainer?
- from different. But here I proceeded for human qualities of Jensa. The Most important thing that me understood that perceived what I am. I after all not so like to be arranged under people though sometimes it is necessary. It is very important also that with the trainer connected good human relations that you could tell how you feel as where is ill. And often happens that if the trainer at the tennis-player the man such will to yourself you will not give. To me has carried, with Jensom at me problems are not present.
- Never arose aspirations to test in other field?
- very much I want.
- in show - business or cinema, for example?
- Only not it! At me on chambers already an allergy see them I can not. If also at cinema to act in film, I will precisely become crazy. Has thought up! In journalists I will go (laughs), I will bother all too.
- come, we will accept you. And if it is serious, in show - business you have already worked - at least know that such to be model.
- in sense?
- well as?! And known shooting in magazine GQ?
- Oh, it is not necessary about it! To remember at all I do not want.
- and on - to mine, photos have turned out quite chaste.
- I too so thought. And here others thought differently.
- What do you think of money? There are no thoughts from a series Here now I will win and I will receive so much - that ?
- Is not present. I play for the sake of game, it is unequivocal. Money will be put, if win. Though absolutely not to think of them I cannot. Naturally, in life without them very hard, silly to say that I am ready to play for nutlets. But it is not necessary to think that money falls down me from the sky. I should earn them very hard. But I concern them easy enough. That is even if they suddenly will end, I can endure it.
- and remember, what have bought, when there was first money?
- a bag any.
- that so is modest? I thought, the car have run to get.
- is not present, I have then bought the car - Land Rover Freelander.

it is a lot of Us, we are rallied, and the others are afraid
- we Will return actually to game. In round besides you and Elena Dementevoj still it is a lot of Russians. From whom it is necessary to wait for the big successes?
- from Masha Sharapova. It is necessary to know simply how with it work as she gives all the best. It is more tremendous! If such approach does not give return at least it will be very insulting.
- and what about Svetlana Kuznetsovoj?
- Light all - taki is more senior Masha. Besides it already in ten and, on - to mine, has almost taken place. Hardly - hardly remains. So it, probably, should not be carried to future generation. And in general, all our girls good fellows - how they, anybody does not stick any more.
- in the tennis world already speak about Russian invasion. How tennis-players concern it?
- you know, when we sit together, we eat, pass by - and begins: oh, well Russian, well again you, well you will do. But anything, get used on the sly. On some tournaments even the attendants on - russki have started talking. It inspires all, whether that. It is a lot of us, we are rallied, and the others are afraid.
- there is any common feature at our tennis-players which distinguishes them from the foreign?
- we have passed such school which and did not dream them. We had the most severe selection, a mad competition. We have passed through those times when there was nothing - rackets, krossovok, clothes. It stories how parents sewed the form are not clear, got any terribly scarce things, got into debt to pay our trips. And here such school has tempered us. We simply more hardy.
- with whom from our tennis-players maintain the closest relations?
- from ours - with Lena Lihovtsevoj, from foreigners - with Kim Klijsters. In general, we, the Russians amicable. For a long time each other we know and we communicate. And the company at us cheerful, especially if Marat Safin with us. This will simply make die of laughing.
- and it is frequent with tennis players are crossed? Nobody offers a hand and heart?
- Well where in this life without men! Only tennis players come on tournaments with wives yes girlfriends. Swine, in general (laughs).
- to be difficult in general the well-known person? Not in respect of internal sensations, and household. After all on street once again you will not leave - admirers will not give to pass.
- where - nibud in France, there yes, can tear on slices. And in Moscow is not present. Girlfriends when we go for a walk,yvaet, swear, why bejsbolku has not put on - learn. And well also what? Learn, smile, can, someone will approach. But our people - the brought most up, delicate and the best in the world. And Moscow - the best city, such is not present another. And anywhere I from here will not leave. I will finish career and I will live here.
- it is fast Wimbledon. On what count there?
- I understand that all wait for miracle continuation. But what I can guarantee? I will prepare, I will try to play as it is possible is better.
- what tournaments were to be won most of all?
- it is possible to think, I so have much won them. There are three more tournaments of the Grand Slam, there are Olympic Games, there is a federation Cup. Last very much I want to win. As I will remember that last year have lost in Moscow to Frenchwomen, already distorts.
