JAMES, A MATCH TOO FAR

 

 I know, James never mentioned it, and was only praise for his opponent in his aftermatch interview, but to be honest, he didn’t have much left. In the first game in particular, no length, no width, and no height! 11/1 in 8m….

 

 The second was a bit better, with the “old bones” moving a bit better, getting warmer and the movement more fluid, James having more incidence on the game, 3/3, 4/4, but Greg just finding his target both at the front and at the back, 10/4. Another big push from James, that seems to relax and strings a few lovely rallies, but it’s still the Frenchman on top, 11/8 in 17m.

 

 The third is a bit more tense, with James feeling he was probably up and down decisions at the end, when he tries and gets back from 5/9 down and gets a few calls that he is truly and utterly not happy about.

 

 James extremely rarely discusses or argues with the Refs. For him to do so, he really must have felt “we was robbed!”. The booing from the crowd that accompanied those three in a row decisions probably made him feel he was not the only one that felt the way he did.

 

 But truly, I don’t think – what do I know – that Greg was going to be denied tonight.

 

 Very calm, sharp and accurate, the French was on a mission: “you will win your first ever World on your 5th attempt”.

 

 As my compatriots, say “Inshallah”

 

The first time I got into a Worlds final, I was 23, I had 5 match balls, I didn’t manage to win them. Overall, I have played 4 finals, and it would be easy to just think about it, but it’s important to move forward. I think I have improved on those important moments, I am more mature, I’m better at dealing with those crucial moments, I’m calmer – even if I appear still intense on the court, but that’s the fire you need to have burning inside to win the kind of matches we played today.

 

 

I think the match I played with Ali yesterday really helped me today. I hadn’t had that kind of test earlier in the tournament and I think it really help opening my lungs and made me more fluid with my movement. I knew from the morning that I felt much better - I was moving better in practice this morning.

 

I’m just happy with how I moved and played and my head is there as well. After all these tournaments and travelling my body is still there and I feel really fresh - I’ve been training really hard to peak this week. I felt relaxed today and I’m feeling happy 

 

I said to James when we came off court that I’m really happy for him. He’s had difficulties with his hip but it is good to see him coming back to near his best. He’s a genius player and it’s good to see him back. 

 

I am more than motivated. I came here and I was sick the first few days. I struggling and I had to deal with it. The motivation makes the difference at the end of the day - if you head is there you can deal with everything.

 

 

It’s going to be my 5th final tomorrow, I’m going to try and do it, for myself, my country, my team and for all the people that support me during those Worlds Champs.
