Seldom have truer words been spoken than these by Topalov in an interview with the Bulgarian Topsport newspaper. Originally posted here.
Do you expect any more whims from [Anand’s] team?
Topalov: I don’t think so. The organisation’s been at such a high level that there’s barely anything left to object to. But if someone’s looking to create a provocation they’ll always find something.
Also from the interview:
Apart from the location and the opponent what is different between this battle and the one with Kramnik?
Anand is a true champion, balanced and a machine for winning at all types of chess – blindfold, blitz, classical… He’s not a genius, but is naturally talented, born to play chess. This allows his play to be quick and error-free, while I play slowly and well.
Later a full translation of the interview was published at Chessdom.
