latizada / Makanaki / mcatolico - Pune / Montpellier / Cordoba

Nelson Loser - 15/02/2020 08:20

latizada - Pune Open
Makanaki - Open Sud de France
mcatolico - Córdoba Open

MickaëLLTLlodra : Hi latizada, congratulations for your maiden Pune Open title ! Your second ATP250 title and your fifth career title overall for your 100th tournament (!!), that makes you once again the LLTL world number 1. I guess that it makes you proud, and makes you wish more title will be coming ?

latizada : Sure! I am very happy to be back on top. And I also like the fact of winning my first title in Asia. As in every win, I was a bit lucky (Vesely-Ivaskha)

MickaëLLTLlodra : Many consider you the LLTL GOAT, and it would he hard to contradict them. Two figure say it all : in 17 Grand Slams participations, you only failed once to reach the quarterfinals, and you reach the semifinals in 34 of the 100 tournaments you took part in ! How do you manage to be so regularly on top, whatever the level of the tournament is ?

latizada : I think I am doing very well in the GS but definitely I have to improve in lower-ranked tournaments. I am quite concerned with my performance in the M1000, although it is true that in M1000 you can face very strong opponents from the very first round, no time to warm up.
Regarding the last question, there is no other secret that effort+luck ;-)

Nelson : Congratulations Makanaki for your 1st title since your the biggest moment of your career: your titlte last year in Melbourne. You had quite a crazy season in 2019, and you could have ended world number#1. What happened for instance in Shanghai, the M1000 that you missed ? Was that some kind of a relapse of your injury against Cell ? (private joke about Mr Satan in Dragon Ball :))

Makanaki : thank you for the congratulations from everywhere. Its nice to start a year in that way, I wasnt able to defend my title in down under but I was happy with the AO generally.
Yes its a pity that I have almost played all possible tournaments in 2019 and then I missed Shanghai. I dont know why anymore but shit happens.

Nelson : Losing 2000pts in the AO last month kicked you off from the top10, but I guess that your goal is to be back in as fast as possible ?

Makanaki : I will hang on and my goal for 2020 is to land within the top 5 again, lets see whats possible.
I wish all the best success to all other LL-fighters and we are looking forward to a long hard season.
Game - Schett - Mak

Nelson : Congratulations mcatolico for your 9th title so far, and your first one in 2020! And you were the defending champion! It seems that you feel home in Cordoba since your draw was almost perfect, not exactly the same scenario as last year :)

mcatolico : Thank you it's always a delight to win a title no matter what size, although it's a shame I didn't get it right in Melbourne. I seem to do really well in 250s and 500s events and abysmal in the GS and Masters. Yea Córdoba seems to be a great hunting ground for me and its great I was able to defend my title! :)

Nelson : How do yo feel about the great performance of your favorite ennemy atoenupu ? Does your performance this week as any connection with the fact that he's now the leader of the LLTL Race ?

mcatolico : Yea I like to take this opportunity to congratulate my office rival (atoenupu) in winning his first (and hopefully last) singles grand slam title - hahaha. Nah it's good he's currently leading the LLTL race as it's making me motivated to also do well. I currently see that I have a healthy lead in Rotterdam (as I write this) so fingers crossed I'll be doing another winner's interview next week! ;)

CocoJumbo/anekfu - First LLTL Doubles + WTA tournament !

Nelson Loser - 10/02/2020 12:19

CocoJumbo/anekfu - WTA Australian Open

MickaëLLTLlodra: Hi anekfu and CocoJumbo, congrats on your WTA OA title! That makes you the first ever LLTL doubles number 1, a way for you to be remembered in the community's history. I guess you are proud of you, and have ambitions for this first LLTL WTA season?

CocoJumbo : It's really good to get a win, even though it is the new WTA tour. "Making history" sounds nice, I did not really think about it. The WTA season can be really interesting this year especially that LLTL will host only the big tournaments. Let's see if our team can handle the heat and stay together all season ;)

anekfu : such a great achievement ! And I'm quite proud to be the first (and only one so far) player to have reached the 1st spot both in singles and doubles. Of course our ambition is now to stay number 1 until the end of the season.

MickaëLLTLlodra: Your team has had quite peculiar statistics in this tournament, with CooJumbo being ? by far ? the best player in the tournament, with an impressive 67.7% ratio of bets, while anekfu barely reached 55% and ended as 31st best player. You were therefore the team with the biggest point difference; would you say that this difference was actually the key to your success?

CocoJumbo : We were joking about it a lot in the first week where anekfu had some horrible results but in the end the points we got from him in later rounds were crucial (as well as Kenin and Mugu making such an unpredictable final). We did not discuss our team before the start apart from stating who we picked for the final. Good thing about it is that we did not make the same mistakes in early rounds. It is a different tactic when all the results can count double (and we could've lose because of that if Halep won the title).
I think that for the next tournaments we will discuss who to play a bit more.

anekfu : the key in double is to choose the good partner right ? I think both kayoo83 and I were able to do it quite well! But you should not underestimate all the work that is not visible: mental preparation, team routines, strong support. And all the doubles specialists know that CocoJumbo's amazing performance wouldn't have been possible without the perfect alchemy of our team. Well I hope this is what the history will remember of my participation haha.

MickaëLLTLlodra: Thank you guys for the interview, and good luck for the upcoming tournaments! One last question, because Micka's interview wouldn't be complete without your opinion (biased or not) on actual or future tennis news: on the last 18 WTA GS, 11 have been won by a player for whom that was the first GS title. Do you think we'll see new winners again in the next 3 GS? If so, who could it be?

CocoJumbo : For sure, it will be Iga Swiatek (no bias at all :D). Actually I'd say it was Flavia Penetta in 2015 (aged 33) who broke the deadlock and Serena's domination to get her first (and only) single slam. Then Jelena Ostapenko gave new hope for all the young players and here we are now, women slams being more unpredictable than ever probably and so many new young champions. I still hope that one of the older players will manage to get a first grand slam title soon too (hoping for Julia Goerges at Wimbledon). It will not be easy for sure.

anekfu : Lucas Pouille ? My biggest challenge now is to try to follow what happens in WTA.
