The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
April 10, 2015: “It’s all so different. I mean, I’m glad I came up in the ‘70s. So glad. In the beginning, it was more fun. Look at all the people we had: we had Billie Jean [King] and Martina [Navratilova] and myself and Arthur Ashe and Jimmy [Connors] and John [McEnroe]. We started it, we started the tennis craze, and there wasn’t as much pressure and there wasn’t as much focus on us and we could have private lives. Nowadays players can’t have any privacy, with social media and everything. The women in my time were closer; we used to practise with each other and have dinner with each other that night. It’s just so different now. It’s big business.”
— Tennis Legend Chris Evert, telling Telegraph Sport (UK) how dramatically pro tennis has changed since her debut.
April 10, 2015: “It’s not the question of tennis, it’s the question of being relaxed enough to play well on court. I was anxious on court. I wanted to be there. I tried in every point, but I was not able to relax myself, to calm myself, to say I’m going to play my best tennis now. I’m playing with too many nerves for a lot of moments, important moments. . . . You have to know that you have a problem and know that you have to improve, but nobody is going to improve the situation for you.”
— Rafael Nadal, in the throes of a prolonged slump, after the 28-year-old superstar suffered a 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 Miami Open third-round defeat to Fernando Verdasco, a player he once defeated 13 straight times.
April 10, 2015: “I love watching her play. I’m actually a fan of hers. I like her attitude. I like how she gets pumped up. I like how she fights. I like how she plays. I think it’s fun to watch and different. It’s a refreshing type of game.”
— Serena Williams, praising Simona Halep after edging the 23-year-old Romanian 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 in the Miami Open semifinals to give her a 10-0 record in semifinal matches at that tournament.
