The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
February 3, 2016: “I believe that all the guys that are out there fighting each week to get to No. 1 are very hungry to get to No. 1. I want to enjoy, and I will, but it's not going to go for more than a few days. After that, I'm already thinking about how can I continue playing well through the rest of the season at each tournament. There is a mind-set one needs to have if you want to stay up there. I think you need to work doubly hard when you’re actually up there. Very hungry. The wolf needs to eat a lot of different meals to get to Paris. Paris is a dessert.”
— Novak Djokovic, after he won his sixth Australian Open and 11th Grand Slam title, answering a question noting the widening gap between him and the leading contender with a metaphor—the wolf that is running up the hill is much hungrier than the wolf standing at the top of the hill.
February 3, 2016: “Every time I walk in this room, everyone expects me to win every single match, every single day of my life. As much as I would like to be a robot, I’m not … I do the best that I can. I try to win every single time I step out there, every single point, but realistically I can’t do it. . . . “I think it’s good to know that if I want to win some tournaments, I have to play better.”
— Serena Williams, sounding unusually humble and philosophical after being upset 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 by No. 7 Angelique Kerber, a 28-year-old German, in the Australian Open final.
February 3, 2016: “I talk about it every time, especially at the end of a tournament, how thankful I am for the crowd. It is an incredible run. It’s a big part of why I'm still playing today. I spent a lot of hours on the practice courts, you know, for exactly moments like these where you feel like you’re appreciated, you’re being pushed forward, they want to see you win, and all that. I wish I could have one more chance to play another match here this week, but I don’t. So of course I’m disappointed maybe for parts of my fans and also for myself. Definitely walk away from a place like this and say, I want to come back next year. I want to relive it again. No problem to hit the practice courts. Can’t wait for the next tournament. You know, everything’s easier when you have a crowd like that. I felt that again tonight.”
— Roger Federer, asked about the standing ovations he received at the start of the third set and for hitting a spectacular passing shot to win a super point in the fourth set, and how much that crowd support helped him turn the match around to win the third set of his otherwise decisive 6-1, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 Australian Open semifinal loss to Novak Djokovic.
February 3, 2016: “It’s been overwhelming. My phone’s run out of battery about three times since the final because everyone keeps sending me so many messages. It’s amazing to have all that support. The number of messages I’ve had from back home, including me alongside Jamie [Murray] and Andy [Murray], is kind of surreal.”
— Gordon Reid, a 24-year-old Scot, after winning his first Grand Slam wheelchair singles title at the Australian Open by beating Joachim Gérard, of Belgium, 7-6, 6-4, in the final, in The Times (UK).
