Vorbe din tenis

tennis_quotes

Australian Open, primul turneu de Grand Slam al anului, s-a incheiat de curand, iar unii dintre colaboratorii de la firma de traducatori specializati din Craiova se dueleaza deja verbal in privinta jucatorilor pentru care vor chibita anul acesta, care se anunta a fi dominat de Djokovic (dupa cum afirma plini de mandrie colaboratorii de la traduceri limbi slave Craiova). Cei mai impaciuitori s-au limitat la a explica celorlalti ce inseamna termeni precum deuce (egalitate) sau backhand (rever), in timp ce altii, mai patimasi, au adunat o lista de citate amuzante sau profunde izvorate din lumea tenisului:

Tennis belongs to the individualistic past – a hero, or at most a pair of friends or lovers, against the world – Tenisul apartine unui trecut al individualitatii – un erou, sau cel mult o pereche de prieteni sau iubiti, impotriva lumii (Jacques Barzun).

I have always considered tennis as a combat in an arena between two gladiators who have their racquets and their courage as their weapons – Intotdeauna am considerat tenisul o lupta in arena intre doi gladiatori care au rachetele si curajul drept arme (Yannick Noah).

An otherwise happily married couple may turn a mixed doubles game into a scene from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf – Un cuplu casatorit altminteri fericit poate transforma un meci de dublu mixt intr-o scena din Cui i-e frica de Virginia Woolf (Rod Laver; piesa de teatru amintita e ilustrativa pentru ce se poate intampla intr-un mariaj, au precizat cativa dintre traducatorii autorizati din Craiova).

A perfect combination of violent action taking place in an atmosphere of total tranquility – O combinatie perfecta de actiune violenta care are loc intr-o atmosfera de tranchilitate totala (Billie  Jean King).

But that won’t give me a free hand to hold the beer – Dar asta nu-mi va lasa nicio mana sa tin berea (Billie Carter, atunci cand era invatat sa loveasca reverul cu doua maini).

Tennis has given me soul – Tenisul mi-a dat un suflet (Martina Navratilova).
