The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
October 7, 2015: “I can’t say that’s what we’re going to do, but I can certainly say it’s something that’s got some favorable feedback and traction from some of the nations. It’s more likely they’d be in different cities because of the timing today, but if you look at it, the Davis Cup and Fed Cup Final Fours could be in the same city, with one held one week and the other the week after. That would make it easier for television, easier for fans to follow the format.”
— Dave Haggerty, former USTA president and the incoming ITF president succeeding Francesco Ricci Bitti, an Italian who served as ITF president for 16 years, telling The New York Times that he favored a Final Four format for both the Davis Cup and the Fed Cup that would preserve the Davis Cup’s traditional home-and-away format in the early rounds, with the four semifinalists then coming together in a host city chosen well in advance—a change, which would be one of the biggest in the Davis Cup’s 115-year history—and he would also push for an expansion of the Fed Cup’s top division from eight teams to 16.
October 7, 2015: “One difference is time on task. There are no shortcuts. We have longer school days—eight hours versus six. If you add that up, it’s 16 years of education versus 12 for district peers. There’s also an emphasis on accountability, which starts with the kids themselves. They know this is a privilege: There are 1,000 kids on the waiting list. So they take ownership. The teachers have annual contracts; there’s no business in the world that could succeed if employees who worked for three years got a job for life. The parents are accountable too. They need to acknowledge, accept, and embrace the objectives set for their children. They come in, they volunteer time, they sign off on homework assignments. You have to cover all the bases.”
— Andre Agassi, telling Harvard Business Review what sets his Las Vegas charter school apart from others.
October 7, 2015: “Will she contend for another clean sweep next year? I doubt it. Is the lure of an Olympic gold medal or two in Rio de Janeiro something that will keep her going? Well, it’s a possibility, but it will take some sacrifices, and I wonder whether Serena is sufficiently in love with the game.”
— Pat Cash, 1987 Wimbledon champion, wondering whether Serena Williams’s motivation will decrease next year after she came close but failed to win the Grand Slam in 2015, in The Times (UK).
