beginning of 2006
How is she doing?
Enrique: "(quiet).. good."
How is she?
Enrique: "She is great, a fighter, she is proffesional, independent, she is the most amusing person that I know. I never get bored when I'm with her, she puts up with me which is very difficult to put up with me. This is more than..well I never expected to be with a person like this. With this human quality that she has, I never expected it."
Enrique: "The love exists."
Your father has an eye for woman.
Enrique: "My taste is a little bit different, I only had one girlfriend in my life up until now."
And is that her?
Enrique: "She is a girl that I consider my girlfriend."
Was there a time when you beat her in Tennis?
Impossible? (laughing) What are her qualities as a tennis player for you?
Enrique: "She was criticized a lot for not winning any big tourment (US Open...) but I believe that the people and the press have frogotten analyzing her story. We are talking about a girl that since the age of 3 grew up in Moscow, a very poor family. She showed me where she grew up, in a very small apartment and it impressed me. I'm not exaggerating, it was double this table size, and there she grew up with her grandparents. At the age of 4 she was given a tennis racket to play and at the age of 12 she was #1 in the juniors in the world, beating players in the age 15-26. At the age of 14 she became professional and was #67 which wasn't bad at all but the unfortunate thing is that she never won a tournment and if you ask me from games I saw through the years, not that I know much about tennis and analyzed the players, I think she is a great tennis player, and I'm not saying this because she is my girlfriend. I say it because I believe it and I know it and I think that she can be better."
