Sony Ericsson Open: Novak Djokovic Interview March 24th 2010:
Q. You were so consistent in Masters events last year. Do you approach these tournaments differently than others, or do anything differently?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, after Grand Slams, these are most important tournaments for us, so we try to prioritize them and set up our shape for these events.
I’ve played quite well last year. I lost many finals, though, and managed to win the title in Paris Bercy. So this year I feel quite good still, but didn’t play my best tennis in Indian Wells.
But, hey, you know, I lost to the champion, so it’s good. Now I have a little more time for Miami to get ready, and hopefully I can pull up some good tennis.
Q. I read your interview after Indian Wells. You hoped to do some sightseeing. Maybe Los Angeles.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yes.
Q. Did that happen?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yeah, it happened.
Q. What did you get to see?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yeah, what the tourists usually see in LA, Universal Studios, beach, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, these kinds of things.
Just relaxing. We don’t have that much time to explore the sights of the different cities, because everything we see well, mostly what we see is tennis club and hotels.
This time I had a little bit more time to go without the practice, because I needed that after Dubai and Davis Cup. So I took some time off and relaxed, and now I’m back in business.
Sony Ericsson Open: Andy Murray Interview March 24th 2010:
An interview with: ANDY MURRAY
Q. What would your considered thought be after an elapsed period of time after Indian Wells? How do you feel that the intervening period has gone for you?
ANDY MURRAY: Well, I mean obviously I would have liked to have done a bit better at Indian Wells. But, you know, it was you know, I wasn’t going in I guess expecting to win the tournament.
I think, you know, I’ve got to kind of look forward to this week. Had a good chat with Miles and Alex after I finished there about what I wanted to do, you know, in the week that I had to get ready, you know, and what my goals and stuff were for this week.
I feel good.
Q. Do you feel like this is like a home court for you, considering what you did here last year?
ANDY MURRAY: Um, no, I mean, the whole feel of the tournament is nice for me, because I live like eight, ten minutes away. Don’t live here, but spend a lot of time here training and stuff, and I practiced here in December.
So, you know, I’ve played a lot on the courts, so it just, you know, feels it doesn’t take me that long to get used to the conditions and stuff because I spend so much time here.
But in terms of it being a home court, not necessarily. You know, I have not played here too many years, and last year was obviously the best I played. Hopefully I can do well again this year.
Q. Is the court worth a few points to you?
ANDY MURRAY: Yeah, I think so, yeah. I mean, I think you know, it does make a difference if you, you know, practice at the place where you’re gonna be playing.
It just you know, it’s a little bit, like I say, just I don’t know if you train in the same you know, if you train in the same gym and lift the same weights all the time, and then you if you go to a different gym, even though the weights say the same, they always feel a little bit heavier, a little bit different.
Always takes you a little bit to get used to it psychologically maybe.
Q. Has anybody asked you about your take on what happened in Parliament yesterday?
ANDY MURRAY: In what?
Q. The question of tennis in the UK was brought up in Parliament.
ANDY MURRAY: Oh, okay. No, I haven’t spoken to anyone about it. I heard it was gonna happen, but I didn’t hear what happened.
Sony Ericsson Open: Justine Henin Interview March 24th:
J. HENIN/J. Craybas 6 2, 6 2
Q. Are you still having fun?
JUSTINE HENIN: Yeah, hopefully. No, it’s been good to be back on the courts. It was disappointing in Indian Wells, of course, not being my best.
But I also realize it’s gonna take a little bit of time to really be in the good rhythm and find myself again on the court, and I have to get used to different kind of things.
I didn’t live this life for almost two years, so that takes a little bit of time. I’ve worked pretty good between Indian Wells and here.
Now I’m gonna have a tough round, tough match. That’s what I want. So it’s gonna be perfect to test myself.
Q. Speaking of Elena, the other day she said when she played you in Australia she didn’t know what to expect. Obviously the backhand has never gone away, but she was surprised by your forehand. Today you hit a big winner on a cross court point. Have you beefed up your forehand at all?
JUSTINE HENIN: My backhand has always been the most natural shot, but all the time in my career I had to work very hard on my forehand.
Even if, you know, it’s not maybe doesn’t look that beautiful, I know that pays, you know. It gives me a lot more winners, a lot more than on the backhand side.
But, no, generally I just have to play aggressive and play the game I played in Australia and just try to improve every day. The hardest part when you stop is to keep the concentration all the time and to keep the intensity.
You know, it’s ups and downs, and it’s quite normal at the beginning.
