    [雙語新聞]阿加西:就目前而言 我會一直把網球打下去
      An Interview with Andre Agassi
        美國網壇老將、賽會7號種子阿加西最終沒能如願以償奪得冠軍。在北京時間9月12日淩晨結束的美國網球公開賽男子單打決賽中,阿加西以3-6,6-2,6-7,1-6輸給了賽會1號種子、瑞士“天王”費德勒。賽後阿加西在新聞發佈會上接受了記者們的採訪。

        記者:很顯然這並不是你所希望看到的結果。今天曾經有那麼一刻,當你的形象出現在賽場實況轉播大屏幕上時,觀眾們一度陷入了瘋狂的狀態。你當時頭纏毛巾,然後又把它摘了下來,好像要把整個頭都埋進去。觀眾們對你如癡如狂,這對你來說意味著什麼呢?

        阿加西:在過去的20年,我走過了一個輪迴。這是一段令人驚奇的發現之旅,期間我和大家由陌生到熟悉,而我也在這裡開始慢慢地成長起來。在我現在這個年齡,還能得到大家如此的厚愛,這種感覺是無與倫比的,讓我永生難忘。我是帶著成千上萬觀眾的歡呼和愛戴離開這裡的,這些美好的記憶將伴隨我一生。

        記者:今天你輸給了世界排名第1的網球選手費德勒,但能夠躋身今天的決賽本身以及在這之前兩個星期圍繞著你所發生的一切,是不是已經足以彌補輸球帶給你的遺憾呢?

        阿加西:的確如此。輸球固然很令人失望,但首先要明白的是為什麼會輸。我今天輸給了一個比我更棒的傢伙,我的意思是我很難找到理由來否認這一點。

        費德勒是我遇見過的最棒的網球選手。和他比賽,你沒有太多的選擇,只能踏踏實實地打好每一個球,就像打高爾夫一樣,你所要做的就是揮桿擊球,然後推球入洞。如果在和他的比賽中你能夠做到心想事成的話,那麼你就有機會獲勝,但這個要求也太高了。

        記者:你剛才是不是在說這是你所參加的最後一次公開賽,或者你的意思是:“我想謝謝你們在這20年媢鴽琲漱銕龤芋H是不是你還不清楚明年是否還會捲土重來?

        阿加西:就連1個月以後的事我都不清楚,更別提1年了。但就目前而言,我希望能夠繼續打下去。你知道,惟一能比前20年更好的就是第21年。

        記者:這是你打過的最棒的但是最後卻輸掉的比賽嗎?

        阿加西:我現在還不能自我評估現在的水平,這太早了。在比賽中我曾經在發球局堨H30-0領先,但對方一個反手歪打正著,球正好落在了底線上。之後我也有一個球打在了球網上,落在了對方場地,讓我得分。但這些對他沒有什麼影響。即使比分落後,他也能很快進入狀態並成功破發。要是對手換成別人,在這種情況下我一定會認為自己要贏了。

        記者:費德勒是惟一一個每球都給你很大壓力的選手嗎?

        阿加西:是的。這麼多年來,我也和很多其他選手交過手,你總能找到解決問題的辦法。但和費德勒比賽,無論你做哪些改變,他總是有辦法找到答案。他看上去隨時都能“扣動扳機”,置對手于死地。

        總的來說,他的打法很特別,我想這是一種我以前從沒見過的打法。

        記者:在今天比賽的第3盤,你一度以3-2領先。如果你當時能堅持下去,誰知道結果會怎樣呢。

        阿加西:我喜歡你思維的方式(笑)。當然,你必須努力去做才能實現你的假設。我現在談的是費德勒在所有他參加的大型比賽中所表現出來的高水平和天賦。這太讓人瘋狂了。他贏了多少? 24場決賽,是嗎?可能是23場。我要好好想想,除了他以外,還有誰做到過這一點。

        記者:你認為費德勒在他最輝煌的時候已經超過桑普拉斯了嗎?他是不是有一天能夠打破桑普拉斯所保持的記錄?

        阿加西:桑普拉斯是非常了不起的選手,這毫無問題。但比賽中他也有破綻可以被利用,但費德勒卻沒有明顯的破綻。

        我認為費德勒是我所遇到過的最棒的選手。但同時我也認為,要想贏得那麼多的大滿貫賽事冠軍頭銜,還需要很多很多因素,包括一點點的運氣,還有不受傷等等。

        記者:費德勒在進入決賽之前只輸了兩局,分別是在對陣休伊特和基弗時輸掉的。這兩局都進入了“搶7”。對陣這兩名選手,費德勒都打出了6-2的比分。但在決賽結束之後他說,這是他在本屆美網中打得最好的一場。我知道在比賽中你沒有什麼機會翻盤,但回首整場比賽,你也曾經打了對方一個6-2,並曾經一度將對手拖入“搶7”,考慮到對手的水平,可不可以說這也是一個了不起的成績呢?

        阿加西:和他比賽很富挑戰性。在我交過手的選手中,他是惟一一名能讓我在發球局媔僅1-0領先時就說“嗯,還不錯”的選手(大笑)。

        我可不是在開玩笑,我是在用另一種方式告訴你,他可以在任何情況下置你于死地。比方說,你發球,甚至你還以30-0領先,這時對手得了1分,比分變成30-15,這時你就有了和其他選手比賽所沒有的那種壓力。所以在比賽中,每一球都有緊迫感,這是一種令人難以置信的挑戰。

        在今天的比賽中,我做的還不夠好。雖然之前我曾經打了3場打滿5盤的比賽,但這並不能直接幫助我今天取得勝利。問題是,人們必須隨時隨地的努力去超越自己的水平。

        記者: 你是帶著怎樣的心情進入本屆美網決賽的?是不是同以往有些不同?

        阿加西:是的,有一種劫後余生的感覺。星期六我剛剛打滿了5盤進入決賽,接著在不到24小時奡N要做好再打5盤的準備。所以在內心深處我必須精打細算,做好迎接大賽的準備。但從內心而言,我是期待著這樣一場比賽的。今天第4盤的比賽證明了對手的實力,也告訴人們在和費德勒比賽的時候,你絕不能讓他取得領先。對付所有的高手,你都不能讓他們領先。

        記者:從感情上講,今年美網打到這個份上是不是讓你感到比94和99年兩屆美網奪冠還要更讓你滿意?

        阿加西:我現在正處在我生命和職業生涯的一個全新階段。在這一特別的時刻,我享受到了網球比賽以及觀眾的支持所能帶給我的所有快樂。現在我可以享受到的東西很多,還沒有時間為下一場比賽的輸贏而煩惱。

        為了今天,我一直兢兢業業,能享受到比賽帶來的快樂讓我感覺真好。為了能有今天這樣的感覺,我做了我所能做的一切,為此我的感覺好極了。

        記者:費德勒在今年的大滿貫賽事中曾經被打敗過。薩芬在澳網淘汰了他,後來還有納達爾在法網擊敗過他。你怎麼看待他的這兩場失利?

        阿加西:我看什麼?他贏了溫網。

        記者:他是可以被打敗的。這是時間的問題還是選手的問題?

        阿加西:其實任何人都是可以被打敗的。他今年贏了多少場比賽?他是不是輸了3次?

        記者:是的3次,兩次是在大滿貫賽事。

        阿加西:他輸了3次,但他或許能贏70次。是的,他當然是可以被打敗的(笑)。

        我的意思是,體育意味著你必須親自參與。你不可能在家堨揖晶q話,或者像有些人那樣在星期天弄個燒烤什麼的就會有結果。你必須親自露面,必須親身參與,而這就是費德勒所做的。

        所以,誰也不會因為他具有天賦、或者因為他為此付出了艱苦的努力就理所應當地向他致敬,他也不會因此在踏上賽場的那一刻就理所應當地認為自己是奪冠大熱門,希望事事順利。他只是一場比賽接一場比賽的去參加。

        所以費德勒的成功是多種因素的結合,他理應獲得這些。

        記者:有朝一日,當你決定挂拍離開球場的時候,不論這樣的決定是在半年以後還是在5年以後做出,你認為究竟是哪些因素會促使你做出這樣的決定呢?是覺得網球再也沒有意思,還是你的身體已經吃不消,抑或是相比起網球,你的家人更需要你?究竟是什麼呢?

        阿加西:如果你說的那些我都感覺到了,同時也覺得網球比賽不再好玩,那可真不是一件什麼好事。我感覺,如果做出那樣的選擇的話,家庭因素應該是很大的一塊,體能也是其中之一。這些因素我不能一一都說出來,我所知道的是,當我知道我的決定的時候,你們也會知道。我所能說的也就是這些。

        記者:賽後你和夫人說了些什麼?

        阿加西:我們還什麼也沒來得及說呢。

        Q. Obviously, this isn't the result you wanted. There was a moment out there when you were up on the Jumbotron, crowd was going crazy, you had your towel over your head, then you lifted it up as if to take it all in. Talk about the outpouring of emotion from the crowd out there, what that meant to you.

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, over the last 20 years I've come full circle, you know. It's been an amazing journey and discovery of each other as I've grown up out here. You know, to be here at an age where I can take in that sort of love and be at an age where I can embrace it is a tremendous feeling. I'll never forget this.

        It can't take away from me ever what I'm leaving here with, and that's the memory of thousands of people pulling for me and showing appreciation for something that I care dearly about.

        Q. Does the joy of being out there today and what's happened these past couple weeks outweigh the sting of losing to the world's best player today?

        ANDRE AGASSI: It does, yes. It does. It's disappointing to lose, but the first thing you have to assess is why did you lose and, you know, I just lot to a guy that's better. I mean, there's only so long you can deny it.

        But, you know, he's the best I've ever played against. There's nowhere to go. You know, there's nothing to do except hit fairways, hit greens and make putts. I mean, every shot has that sort of urgency on it. And if you do what you're supposed to do, you feel like it gives you a chance to win the point. That's just too good.

        Q. Andre, are you saying you're leaving, meaning this is your last Open, or do you just say ?? you took the microphone and said, "I just want to thank you guys for the last 20 years." Is that because you're unsure whether you'll be back here next year or not?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, I'm unsure about what I'm going to do in a month, let alone a year from now. But as of now, my intention is to keep working and keep doing what it is I do. You know, only thing better than the last 20 years will be the last 21 years.

        Q. Was that the best you've ever played and lost?

        ANDRE AGASSI: I don't know. I can't assess my standard right now, it's a little too soon. I had 4?2 ?? I had a set apiece, 4?2, 30?Love serving, he had an inside?out backhand miss?hit that found the line. Then I hit a net cord to set up. That's the thing, you know, it doesn't take much with him. He can break a match open, or he can get back into it right away.

        But I would say that normally if I play that way against anybody, I would be favoring myself.

        Q. Is he the only guy who puts that much pressure on you where every shot is at a premium?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yes. I mean, you know, there's other guys you play, I've played a lot of them, I mean, so many years, there's a safety zone, there's a place to get to, there's something to focus on, there's a way, you know. Anything you try to do, he potentially has an answer for and it's just a function of when he starts pulling the triggers necessary to get you to change to that decision.

        But, yeah, he plays the game in a very special way. I don't think ?? I haven't seen it before.

        Q. That being said, though, you were in control of this match when you had broken him at 3?2 in that third set. Had you been able to maybe hold, who knows what would have happened.

        ANDRE AGASSI: I like the way you think (laughter). Make sure you write that tomorrow. I was that close...

        Yeah, no, no listen, you still got to earn it, you still got to do it. I'm just speaking of the standard and the options and the talent and the execution that he shows in all the biggest matches. It's crazy. What has he won, 24 straight finals, something like that?

        Q. You said you thought he was the greatest you've ever played against. Did you think that before tonight or was there something about tonight specifically that pushed you over the edge of thinking that?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, that's a great question. This is playing him in the finals of a Slam, you know. I've seen a lot of people play special matches arbitrarily, you know, just out of nowhere, just played a great match. He certainly has done that a number of times against me.

        But when you play somebody in the finals of a Slam, you can assess it pretty effectively. And I've never seen that.

        Q. Do you think Roger is even better than Sampras at his best, and he could maybe break one day the record of Sampras?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Pete was great. I mean, no question. But there was a place to get to with Pete, you knew what you had to do. If you do it, it could be on your terms. There's no such place like that with Roger.

        I think he's the best I've played against. But I also think the accomplishment of winning that many Slams requires a number of things, including a little bit of luck to make sure you're healthy, nothing goes wrong.

        Q. He only lost two sets going into the match. Those two were both lost ? one to Lleyton, one to Kiefer ? in tiebreaks. He took them 6?2. He said he played better in this match than the whole tournament. I know you haven't had much of a chance to reflect on it, but can you look back and say that's a hell of an accomplishment, to take him 6?2 and take him to a tiebreak, considering the level he's playing at?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, it's a challenge to, you know ?? he's the only guy I've ever played against where you hold serve to go 1?0 and you're thinking, "All right, good" (laughter).

        And I'm not just making fun of it, I'm literally telling you the way it is. He can hurt you at any point. You're serving 30?Love, he wins the point. It's 30?15, the pressure you feel at 30?15 is different than anybody else.

        So there's a sense of urgency on every point, on every shot. You know, it's an incredible challenge.

        You know, I certainly didn't have enough today. I know, you know, three five?setters doesn't help. But it's still a standard out there that you got to exceed yourself all the time.

        Q. Did you feel he was a little bit erratic off the backhand at times during the match? You seemed to be exploiting that.

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, I mean, it was a bit breezy. When I got on top of him, I could get to that. I certainly like my backhand to his backhand, or I certainly like that as a better option than his forehand.

        But, you know, with that being said, he hit an inside?out winner at 30?Love, 4?2 in the third set that found the line. He hit a few up the line. He hits that short chip, moves you forward, moves you back. He uses your pace against you. If you take pace off, so that he can't use your pace, he can step around and hurt you with the forehand. Just the amount of options he has to get around any particular stage of the match where maybe something's out of sync is ?? seems to be endless.

        His success out there is just a mere reflection of all the things that he can do.

        Q. Did you ever think that you'd see a player like him who moves so well, whose mental game is so well, serves so well, it seems like he hits every ball clean, every ball seems to hit the line. You said with Sampras, there was a place where you could be safe. With Roger, it seems like he's off balance and still hitting crosscourt winners and shots with a lot of pace on them.

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, I mean, the only thing I could conceive more difficult than that is everything he does and make him 6'5".

        He's, you know ?? he does things that others just can't do.

        Q. It seemed like going to the tiebreaker you were getting into his backhand with the kick serve, especially into the ad court. Fourth point of it he finally hits the big backhand down the line. Return of serve winner. After that, two unforced for you. He flew to the title. Did it surprise you, and was that more or less the turnaround right there?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, he always elevates, you know, in tiebreakers. You'll always see that when he plays, he takes his chances.

        But I was using the kick serve effectively against the wind ?? I mean, sorry, with the wind. In that particular stage, I was serving once in the tiebreak I was against the wind, and it was a second serve.

        You know, that's my point, I was safe for a long time out there just hitting a dumpy second serve to the backhand and getting into the point. Then at any point he can decide, "Well, I want to make you worry about that." He had the breeze on his back. He just stayed through that ball and hit it up the line. It was pretty much by me.

        You know, and then the next couple points, because he has ?? you know he's going to step up, you have that little extra pressure to do a little bit more with the ball, to push it through the wind, and to get it deep because you don't want to leave anything hanging against him on either wing. And, you know, you make a couple errors because you're trying to play too good. And then just for good measure he did it at 6?1 in the tiebreaker.

        So anything that you're trying to execute out there only lasts for a period of time till he makes the adjustment. Then you have to change it. All the while, everything you're planning on doing, you have to do well and you have to do it start to finish. So that's, you know ?? you can only say it so many ways. You know, that's too good.

        Q. Is it hopeless, or do you believe he's a challenge that eventually can be figured out?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, something needs to be off one way or another. You need to play the craziest tennis you've ever played or he needs to be doing something off because, you know, you have to do it for such a long period of time. And while I believe I can do that, you always got to look at it for what it is and you say, "This guy's won that many finals for a reason." I mean, that stat alone is pretty crazy. I mean, you're talking about the best that are left in the tournament and he's winning that many times in a row, you know...

        It is what it is but you do step on the court feeling like you have to play a perfect match. He has to execute. I mean, he has to do what he does. But if he does, you have to play a perfect match.

        Q. Emotionally, is this run more satisfying than '94, '99 here?

        ANDRE AGASSI: I'm at such a different place in my life and career now, so at this particular time I can enjoy this as much as I've enjoyed anything on the tennis court with the support and the appreciation of the fans and the classic, you know, night match against James. There's a lot that I can enjoy now that before you're too busy worrying about winning, you know.

        You know, I've worked long and hard to be in a place where I can come out here and enjoy a sport that's been so good to me. And to be able to actually put that into a fact is a great feeling. I stepped out there and I looked forward to it and I did everything I could, and I do feel good about that.

        Q. He's been beaten in Grand Slams this year. Safin got him in Australia. Nadal. How do you see that in perspective?

        ANDRE AGASSI: How do I see what? He won Wimbledon.

        Q. He's beatable. Is it a matter of time, or is it a matter of player?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, everybody's beatable, I mean, on any given day. How many matches ?? what's his record this year? He's lost three times?

        Q. Three times, two Grand Slams.

        ANDRE AGASSI: He's lost three times. He's probably won 70? Yeah, he's definitely beatable (laughter). I just don't like those odds (laughter).

        But, I mean, in sports you have to execute, you know. You can't phone in the result or else everybody could have just stayed home and barbecued this Sunday, you know. You can't phone in the result. You have to show up and you have to do it and that's what he has to do.

        So you can't just say he's full of talent, you have to give him his respect for hard work and discipline and commitment and the mindset that it takes to step on the court being the favorite every time, to step in the finals hoping today's not the day that something goes wrong, like you're talking about. And he does it over and over again.

        So there are a lot of things coming together for him, and deservingly so.

        Q. I'm not saying I don't want you to continue to play. But can you imagine a better moment here at the US Open, you lost in the final against the No. 1 in the world?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, beating the No. 1 is better (laughter).

        Q. When you make that decision to put the racquet on the wall and walk away, whether it's six months from now, five years from now, whatever, what do you think will go into that for you? What will be the factors? If it's not fun anymore, that your body doesn't hold up, your family needs you more? What do you think will go into that decision?

        ANDRE AGASSI: Well, I mean, based on all those points would be a factor if I felt those things, if I felt like it wasn't fun, that's not good. If I felt like, you know, it was compromising my family too much, that would be a factor. If I felt like physically I just couldn't come out here with the hope of making the best play the best, that would be a factor.

        I don't know all the pieces that will be a part of it. I don't know what will be most sort of pronounced. But I do know that, you know, when I know, you'll know. That's, I mean, that's the most I can say.

        Q. Did you speak with your wife after the match? What do you say?

        ANDRE AGASSI: We didn't have time to chat yet.
