The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
June 28, 2015: “It’s absolutely something that needed to happen. I think this change was a long time coming. I was one of the guys throwing a fit about it when I was playing. I think it’s a no-brainer, but I’m really glad that it’s here. It’s the way it should be.”
— Former world No. 1 and three-time Wimbledon finalist Andy Roddick, on the new scheduling change that adds a third week (instead of two formerly) between the French Open and Wimbledon to increase the grass-court season and to give players more time to rest and recuperate after Roland Garros, in USA Today.
June 28, 2015: “I was such a young girl. Looking back at the tape, I had such a baby face, and the emotions were really showing on that baby face. And I was a skinny girl, too. I still wasn't as tall as I am today. I kept on growing for another two or three years after that victory. So it's been 11 years now, and I look back on that and I relive that memory inside of myself. Your first grand slam title is very special. What would I say to my 17-year-old self, to that young girl who won Wimbledon? I would say, ‘Keep on doing what you're doing.’ In fact, no, I don't think I would want to say anything. Life is such an experience and you have to go through it and you have to learn. I don't think, even if it were possible, that I would want to be giving my younger self advice because you have to go through those moments when you have to pick yourself up or you have to take another road, or back up.”
— Maria Sharapova, recalled her stunning and only Wimbledon title as a 17-year-old ingénue that culminated with a shocking 6-1, 6-4 victory over Serena Williams in the final, on ESPN.com, before the 2015 Wimbledon.
June 28, 2015: “The most important thing you want for people is to be their authentic self. Whatever that is, whoever you are, you want that. And I'm really happy for Caitlyn because it seems like she's finally going to be who she wants to be. There's probably somebody gay in every family. There's a lot of kids who are transgender. . . . People have to have compassion and understanding. This is life, and you have to understand that it's okay.”
— Billie Jean King, talking to the Boston Herald Radio’s "Fargo Street" program about former track superstar Bruce Jenner's transgender transition to Caitlyn Jenner after her highly publicized and widely viewed sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC.
