The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
May 17, 2015: “Djokovic is the machine. It’s the way he's hitting the ball from the baseline, how aggressively he plays and how he does it with so few unforced errors. His ability to turn defense into attack is second to none. He will be considered in the same class as [Roger] Federer and [Rafael] Nadal. Djokovic has won eight Slams, but in the future that number is going to climb to 11, 12, 13 and maybe more. When he does that he will go down as one of the greats.”
— Tim Henman, a former four-time Wimbledon semifinalist, telling the
Belfast Telegraph that No. 1 Novak Djokovic will end up as one of the greatest players ever.
May 17, 2015: “He basically walked straight into me for no reason. He walked into me and then ran down the other end of the court. He did it intentionally. I shouldn’t have said what I said [“Everyone hates you!”], but if someone does that to you and you don’t respond, you’re letting him dictate how the match goes. I was always taught by my Dad if someone pushes you or threatens you, that you stick up for yourself.”
— Andy Murray, talking about being bumped by Lukas Rosol during a changeover, after which reconciled their differences after talking it out in the locker room after the match.
May 17, 2015: “We thought about it. We could not not ask the question for a champion like him, who has embodied the tournament for 10 years and only once not won a match. But the circumstances are different. In 2013, he came in injured. Today, it is his sporting level, it seems, which has fallen. He is not hampered. So, we will not adjust the seedings in his favor.”
— Gilbert Ysern, director of the French Open, stating slump-ridden Rafael Nadal will not get a boost in the seedings—above his current No. 7 ranking—despite winning Roland Garros the last five years and nine times in his career.
