In the recent interview to the newspaper Sport-Express Boris Gelfand shared his thoughts on the upcoming World championship match:

"If there will be a real Vishy, he'll give a fight. He has a huge match experience. In addition, Carlsen also has weaknesses. We all saw how he got nervous at the Candidates' when not everything went smoothly... It will be really interesting to see their match. ... Vishy has played on his opponent's territory for a lot of times and that didn't change anything. We can't say some country is good and some other is bad. Although the climate and food there is somewhat unusual for the European. Nevertheless, if they comply with the conditions, one can adapt to them."

Gelfand has also noted what differs Carlsen from other famous challengers:

"Yet there wasn't a single World Champion who, on his way to his goal, wouldn't be absolutely focused on it. We all know how focused were Fischer, Karpov, Kasparov, Kramnik... And here when you're eager to do everything - it may hamper in reaching the goal. ... Magnus does well! I have no right to tell him anything. He is a great chess player and he does what he wants, for instance, he is quite active in social media platforms. He's just a representative of a different generation with different values and approaches..."
