The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:


April 21, 2014:  "Unless I’m eating really healthy, I feel that way almost every other week. I feel as if I can do better and be smaller, which I think is just a natural thing for women to feel. We’re taught that we have to look a certain way. . . . I learned to be proud of my curves and to embrace my large boobs and my butt. It’s all about loving who you are and realizing that you’re beautiful.”
Serena Williams, telling Fitness magazine how she grapples with her body image issues.
April 21, 2014: “I can see that when mentally I’m there and I’m fighting, I can play tennis, I can beat all the players. I did an amazing job. I’m really happy after winning my first Grand Slam to win a Masters 1000 so quick. I didn’t expect to. When I came here, for me it was more like a test. I knew I was playing good tennis, but I didn’t expect to win because the draw was so strong.”
Stanislas Wawrinka, after he snapped an 11-match losing streak against Swiss compatriot and good friend Roger Federer by winning 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the Monte Carlo final for his first Masters 1000 title.
April 21, 2014: “It would leave the sport with no serve-volley, no opportunity for variation, and a lot more biff from the back. If you like attritional tennis, this is a cast-iron way to get more of it. No player is going to risk going for an ace if the penalty is dropping a point.”
Kevin Mitchell, tennis correspondent for The Guardian (UK), rightly explaining why the idea of abolishing the second serve would hurt the sport.
