The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:

May 13, 2016: “I let my family down, I let my team down, I let my fans down with that kind of behavior, which I definitely apologize for.
— A contrite and apologetic Grigor Dimitrov, who lost his composure and smashed his racket three times, which ultimately led to a warning, a point penalty and then another point penalty, which came with Dimitrov down 5-0 and gave the game, set and match to Diego Schwartzman, who staged a stunning comeback—after trailing 5-2 in the second set—to upset second-seeded Dimitrov of Bulgaria 6-7 (5), 7-6 (4), 6-0 and claim his maiden ATP Tour title at the Istanbul Open.
May 13, 2016: “It would be incredible to reach the top of my sport. It’s something that you dream of when you’re younger. My brother has just topped the rankings in the doubles, so as brothers it would be incredible to say that we were both able to reach number one during our careers, but it’s not something that I’m going to solely focus on. To reach number one, you have to be incredibly consistent in tournaments, so I will just continue to focus on one tournament at a time, and make sure I keep working as hard as I can to win every tournament.
Andy Murray, the 2012 US Open and 2013 Wimbledon champion, says joining Jamie as a world No. 1 is his ultimate goal.
May 13, 2016: “While he appears the embodiment of calm, collected grace, a man at times humbled to tears, who enjoys nothing more than traveling the ATP circuit with his wife, Mirka, and their four children, there lies within Roger Federer a primordial need: the same ineffable hunger that possesses Tiger and Peyton. ‘When you do something best in life,’ Federer has said, ‘you don't really want to give it up. And for me that is tennis.
Tim Struby, in his new “The Natural” profile of Roger Federer in Maxim magazine's April issue.
