The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:


Nov 29, 2014: “I showed them I’m not No. 4 I the world for nothing.
Stanislas Wawrinka, after whipping Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in four sets by playing aggressively in the opening rubber of Switzerland’s 3-1 victory over host France in the Davis Cup final.
Nov 29, 2014: “That helped me a lot. At the U.S. [Open], I changed my game plan, I was like very close. I was like dominating him most of the match. Then maybe I had little nerves at the end, was a bit of the same, but I played much better, I had a different game plan and I delivered a more aggressive tennis.

I was booed in my own country [for checking a ball mark], maybe not by the French spectators but by the Swiss spectators. It’s annoying.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, dejected that the 2,500 Swiss fans made more noise than the French fans among the record crowd of 27,432 spectators in the stands of the Pierre Mauroy stadium in Lille, France, for the opening day of the Davis Cup final.
