The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
August 25, 2015: “It’s all up to me. If I decide to be Baby Rena, then . . . I saw someone write that on Instagram. I kind of liked that, though. They were calling me out, but I was like, ‘They’re right, so . . .’ Yeah, hopefully Baby Rena won’t come out.”
— Serena Williams, who hopes to complete the Grand Slam at the US Open, asked what she thought the last Grand Slam event of the season would be like, and referring to the self-destructive “Baby Rena” personality that exploded and imploded at the 2009 and 2011 US Opens.
August 25, 2015: “I think he’s playing well, he’s fit, he hits the ball great, he’s doing everything that he’s been doing for years. It is tougher as you get older and now Novak [Djokovic] and [Andy] Murray, they’re in their prime now. I think for Roger to win, things need to fall into place. I think if he has to play Murray, Djokovic, then Rafael Nadal in one week or back-to-back, it gets more difficult. Wimbledon, I think, is his best chance, but the US Open he’s won there five times, he knows what he’s doing. I think he’s got a good shot, but I think obviously Novak is the man to beat.”
— Former Superstar Pete Sampras, on “The Tennis Podcast,” saying he thinks 34-year-old Roger Federer has a real chance to win the US Open.
August 25, 2015: “I think it is a very important ingredient. I think what we saw in the late ’80s with [Jim] Courier, Sampras, Agassi, [Michael] Chang, and a lot of other guys that were very good — some not quite that good — was the result of those guys really beating up on each other, making each other better. So when you have one player in a peer group that has a really good result, then all of a sudden the other guys in the group think, ‘Well, hey, I can beat that guy. I’ve been playing him for three years. I can do that.’ And then somebody else pops up. And I think that is what we are going to get with this group of boys if we keep them on track.”
— Martin Blackman, newly appointed General Manager of USTA Player Development, believes what he calls “healthy peer pressure’’ and the “demonstration effect” within the pack will help drive highly promising American teenagers Reilly Opelka and Noah Rubin, the last two Wimbledon junior champions, French Open junior winner Taylor Fritz, Taylor Paul, Frances Tiafoe, Stefan Kozlov, and Michael Mmoe to success, in The Boston Globe.
