The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
Feb 26, 2015: “Look, I actually believe that we attract what we’re ready for. Yes, I haven’t won against her many times, but if I’m getting to the stage of competing against someone like Serena, I’m doing something well. I’m setting up a chance to try to beat her and it hasn’t happened. But I’m not just going to go home without giving it another chance. That’s just not who I am and not who I was raised to be. I’m a competitor. I love the competition. I love playing against the best. And, at the moment, she is.”
— Maria Sharapova, vowing to stalk Serena Williams until she beats her after losing to the No. 1 Williams for the 16th straight time at the Australian Open.
Feb 26, 2015: “Of course. I’ve had it and ended up losing the match. I don’t think I lost because I was nervous necessarily, but because of the circumstances. During a match, you have a very elevate pulse and you get the shakes sometimes, and you don’t know why that is. Sometimes your legs freeze, so you try to stay in the moment. That’s what I like about sports or tennis. When we get nervous, at least we’re moving and doing something, so we can distract our mind [with] physical effort.”
— Roger Federer, asked by Inside Tennis magazine if he has suffered from his hands shaking or other forms of high anxiety at match point.
Feb 26, 2015: “I think [we need] to have more relation with other people. Not to live in a bubble. We don’t talk with anyone. To be more open. But we can’t do this together so . . . It’s not like that on the men’s tour. I don’t understand why. I think girls are more like [imitates a cat’s claw-like gesture]. The men, they just sit there, they eat, they have dinner together and I’m like ‘what? are you crazy?’ With the Spanish players I kind of have more relation, but with the rest, no. It’s sad.”
— Garbine Muguruza, a 21-year-old rising Spanish star, when asked by Sport360 what she would change about her time on the circuit.
