See, this is why RG needs lights. Because, due to a lack of lights at Roland Garros, one of Kolya's matches got held over last week, which meant he missed his appointment at the British embassy to get a visa, which means maybe now he can't play Queen's.
Q. Maybe you need to play on grass. Are you looking forward to that?
NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Yes, because first I need to make visit to England. I don't know if I reach there, you know, coming to the Wimbledon (laughing.)
But should be, yes, next week Queen's. We'll see if I can get visa.
Q. Talk about your visa. What's the problem?
NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Problem what?
Q. The visa, were you serious about that, getting a visa for England?
NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO: Yeah, just ‑‑ no, it's no problem. I try and make last week. I should be have appointment, but I played three days in a row. If you remember, I didn't finish my match and should have been next day play and I have appointment.
Yeah, I pass my time, and now the holiday in England Monday, and then, you know, try to do tomorrow. I know some players say I wait already 10 days hear about visa. And for me now I be in trouble.
If I go tomorrow, I should be receive my visa end of next week. I don't know what I can do. I should be play already Monday Queen's.
And for us, like Russian, it's really, you know, important to try to do faster. I don't know if I can do this week to do something.
Tsk. Why you gotta be hatin' like that, France? Still holding a grudge for that whole "Napoleonic Wars" thing?
