The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:

October 1, 2016: “By having a full year or two to plan we can do more for sponsors and fans with a stadium that's an appropriate size. It's a balancing act, making sure we get bids from a number of different cities so we can make comparisons. But it's not all about money. It's about eyeballs and awareness. Our mission really is to develop, grow and promote tennis around the world. So we will take great caution.
— International Tennis Federation President David Haggerty, telling the Associated Press that cities will bid to stage the finals of the Davis and Fed Cups as part of a revamp of the international team tennis competitions, and the ITF will launch a bidding process in December, although the governing body is yet to determine whether the same city will host the men’s and women’s competitions.
October 1, 2016: “I know Flix likes Jo and Gal, and I see some similarities with them in his game when Felix is playing. But I think Felix at 16 is better than Jo or Gael was at that age.
Louis Borfiga, vice-president of high performance athlete development at Tennis Canada, who had held a similar role in France and helped bring along French stars such as Gal Monfils (world No. 8) and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (No. 12), with high praise for Flix Auger-Aliassime, the 2016 US Open junior champion and world No. 2 junior player, in The Globe and Mail newspaper in Canada.
October 1, 2016: “I’m so tired. I’ve got cramps everywhere. It was my longest match of my career and I won it against Andy playing here. It’s very special for me and also the way of my tennis. It could be the revenge [for the Olympics]. But in that match I was exhausted before the final. We made a good choice with the captain [Daniel Orsanic] to play Andy on the first day.
Juan Martin del Potro, after revealing he suffered from cramps during his “revenge” victory—6-4, 5-7, 6-7, 6-3, 6-4 lasting five hours and seven minutes—over Andy Murray in the opening rubber of the Davis Cup semifinal in which Argentina edged Britain 3-2 at Glasgow.
