The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:

March 24, 2015: “I put myself in the position to win the match, to serve it out. I got a little bit nervous, a little bit tentative, and that was my big mistake. The nerves—I got the nerves. My arm was super heavy. I could not even lift it. I mean, I don’t know if you guys know, if you play sports and if you sometimes get nervous, but this is what happens. I don’t know. The arm wouldn’t go up. It’s just I couldn’t hit through the shot. That’s what happened. I’m saying it honestly. I’m not going to lie. I’m not going to say excuses. It’s just the way it is, and that’s it.
Jelena Jankovic, who was ahead by a set and a service break twice and served at 5-4 for the Indian Wells title, confiding that nerves did her in as she succumbed 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 to Simona Halep.
March 24, 2015: “Rafa has been the Mount Everest of Roland Garros and climbing him is like climbing Mount Everest without the sherpas and the oxygen. Djokovic has nearly reached the summit of that mountain a couple of times and is no doubt playing at a level above everybody else right now. He believes he should win. I think he can and deserves to but he doesn’t deserve it if Rafa gets himself right and shows up again like he has. I will be as excited as anybody to see if Rafa really is going to be vulnerable. It seems that way now but it’s seemed like that before.
Andre Agassi, telling Reuters TV, at the launch of his BILT by Agassi & Reyes range of fitness machines at a sports club just north of London, that world No. 1 Novak Djokovic may never have a better chance to complete his career Grand Slam than at the French Open in June, but the challenge of dethroning nine-time champion Rafa Nadal remains daunting.
March 24, 2015: “Given that institutional empathy, one would think there would be a tacit understanding from the tennis media that Serena not only did the right thing by returning to Indian Wells this week, but that she also—along with Venus—did the right thing by boycotting the tournament in the first place. Instead, questions and criticisms about whether the racial abuse even occurred, like from LA Times columnist Bill Dwyre, or the sentiment that the Willliamses were holding an unnecessary and mean “grudge” over the tournament, like from Inside Tennis Magazine’s Bill Simons, were breathtakingly inappropriate.
Andrew Jerell Jones, sports columnist for The Guardian (UK), lambasting the predominantly white tennis media for their position on Serena Williams’ 14-year boycott of Indian Well, despite conceding, “In the years since, both Venus and Richard have alleged they received racial abuse throughout the match, although there have been no corroborating accounts from any of the 15,940 fans in attendance.
