Richard Krajicek did not need the signs of aging to conceal. So he refused the offer of his wife, Daphne Deckers in order to have grey hair to deal with.
“I’m sometimes asked whether it is a kleurspoeling would like to be. He asked me if I was going mad,” says the fifty-year-old Decker, in a dubbelinterview in the Day.
The 47-year-old Krajicek, attaches more importance to the maintenance of his physical condition, his body and his mind. About how to keep the mind tells it that the old tennis players: “I feel that I might forget something, or less of a hoofdreken, so I do this every day for a puzzeltje a memoriespel, or what rekensommetjes. I’m just too young to be old.”
‘If he’s up all night’
According to Decker, loses her husband during the opening of his brain and soon his own ambitions: “whatever he does must be good. A better than very good. If he’s playing a game with twenty levels, you must have all levels of play. If he stays up all night. Last month, I bought a jigsaw puzzle with a thousand pieces. In no time at all were in place.”
Also, his desire to be physically strong for Krajicek, hardly any boundaries. “If he’s not physically tired, it is restless in the head,” says Decker. “It happens at times that he was” in the night get up and go to the gym. (…) In two weeks at the beach, you can not do this. We have a house in Marbella, and, of course, with a gym, where he rolls every morning. And in the afternoon again. It seems to me to be very tiring for the Richard Krajicek-to-be.”
