from the world of professional tennis

The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:


June 18, 2017: “I was around watching [Martina] Hingis come up and [Steffi] Graf come up and [Monica] Seles come up, and I just see something special in this young lady and the fact that she's so fearless. But what I like even more is her hunger, and you can see it on her face. She really wants this badly and is going to go to any length to win. I love that attitude, and it's the attitude with the power and the short angles—she has a game to back it up. I think she's very special.
Chris Evert, 18-time Grand Slam singles champion and now an ESPN analyst, saying 20-year-old Latvian Jelena Ostapenko, a 100-1 pre-tournament long shot who won the French Open, is “something special."
June 18, 2017: “For sure, he’s playing the best he’s ever played. But not only here. I think since the beginning of the year, you can see he’s playing more aggressive, staying more close from the line. But that’s clearly his best he’s ever played. That’s why he’s winning so much again..
Stan Wawrinka, with high praise for Rafael Nadal after the 31-year-old Spanish superstar trounced him 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 in the French Open final for Nadal's record 10th French title and 15th Grand Slam title.
June 18, 2017: “Tennis waited quite some time for a kid like this. Nadal dies for every point. I admire the extra excitement he brings to the game. He is the most passionate player. He's willing to leave his blood out there. I love that. In this game, we need someone like him to be the world No.1. Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic sure have the talent, and Rafa has that too, but he brings a whole lot more emotions together with that.
Jimmy Connors, eight-time Grand Slam singles champion, on what he admires most about Rafael Nadal.
