Interview with Truls after his win in opposition to Lim. Incl. feedback on his psychological recreation.

An interview carried out in Swedish which I’ve translated and transcribed to the very best of my capacity. See beneath. As typically occurs with written translations, many sayings do not 100% translate and are topic to be misinterpreded.

Since he’s speaking about his mantal recreation which I’ve seen many having a robust response about, I actually do not need to wrongfully convey his which means.

If we’ve got any extra swedes right here please remark if you happen to assume i translated one thing incorrect. I can even test and reply if I discover that you simply may misunderstood one thing resulting from my translation. Ofcourse it is all the time arduous to know somebody’s true which means, particularly in a brief interview like this.

I’d additionally like so as to add that the tone of the reporter is that of a pal who’s nicely accustomed to to ‘the speak’, however on the identical time doing an official interview.


Reporter(R): Truls Möregårdh, one of many sickest(craziest) matches to this point this world championship and in addition within the historical past of world championships. You flip the match round from a seamingly hopless state of affairs 0-3 to 4-3, and the way in which you do it.. What do you say in regards to the match, do we’ve got an hour obtainable

Truls(T): Sure that’s wanted , I do not know what to say truly. It was a really particular/peculiar match. I had no probability at first after which I attempted to search out stuff which he does not like. I win the 4th set though I play “regular” desk tennis. Then the final three units I simply freestyled and performed many various spins, and “no look” photographs. Loads of freestyling and that’s the approach I need to play and what I believe is enjoyable.

R: Sure and it’s extremly interesting to the viewers. You will have a nimble wrist and might do most issues with the ball. And while you on prime of that discover the creativity and succeed, you supply a really totally different play. However you additionally had a physique language which received into the pinnacle of your opponent. What are your ideas relating to the psychological warfare you performed very efficiently, like no different?

T: You possibly can win video games in numerous methods. I den här matchen ser jag “boastful” ut, and does not seem like I care in any respect and freestyle and stuff. That is how I win video games. Some could struggle their approach again and play higher, however I selected this tactic which has labored beforehand, and i am very proud of it. To have the ability to do that in a world championship 1/16 is implausible!

R: You say it your self, you are within the mens singels quarterfinals. What do you say about that?

T: It is sick(loopy), actually sick. I’m dwelling the dream proper now, however I am not happy but. I’ll let this match sink in, will take a few hours. Then it is simply to maintain going!

R: You had been out of the match, outclassed. Not one however to ft out the door. Stellan Bengtsson (the coach, wttc champ -71) had already packed the baggage. You had been out, however you flip it round! How goes your ideas while you see your opponent begin to hesitate?

T: Properly, I regarded him straight within the eyes after every level, and tried to win the metallic recreation 100%. He was the higher participant till tha final three units the place I completely crushed him, with this ‘enjoyable playstyle’. When he will get nervous and I play like that it is no enjoyable for him(pointing extra in the direction of ‘good for him’ than the enjoyable half). Properly it is implausible (for me).

R: We noticed beforehand within the match the place he (Lim Jong-hoon) have performed an unbelivable speedy, fast and fashionable gameplay, which have blown the opponents off the courtroom(swedish saying). And right here comes a inventive wrist which he hasn’t tasted earlier than fairly often I presume. The place do you rank this win in your profession?

T: The largest, i believe. Definately close to the way it performed out. Additionally essentially the most insane. I do not perceive how I received it and with these numbers in opposition to such a superb participant. Completely Insane!

R: You mentioned it your self earlier than we began the interview: ‘What simply occurred?’ And that is what everyone seems to be questioning,

T: mhm

R: maybe Lim(Lim Jong-hoon) essentially the most.

T: mhm ainst Lim. Incl.

R: How do you refocus on the quarterfinals after such a recreation? What’s going to you do now after this interview?

T: I’ll name my household, and shout and perhaps even cry a bit. It is going to be enjoyable to speak to them. I needed all of them might be right here. They imply alot to me. I’ll name them, after which take a look at Kristian vs Aruna, my future opponent within the quarter finals. It is going to be plenty of enjoyable. I am totally prepared for my subsequent match!

R: I want you good luck, and thanks for the present!
