The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:
November 27, 2015: “Yes, well, unbelievable. A few weeks ago I didn’t even know I’d have a chance to be here, and there you go. I didn’t really expect this at all, especially the beginning of the year it was not great. I think the good sentence is to do it here: Doesn’t matter how you start, matters how you end. It means everything. It couldn’t be any better. I think that was the biggest day in my life.”
— A surprised Agnieszka Radwanska, who slipped to No. 15 earlier in the year, on winning the WTA Finals and being an ‘underdog’ after the 26-year-old Pole, who lost her opening two round-robin matches but won the biggest title of her career with big wins over top-5 players Simona Halep, Garbiņe Muguruza, and Petra Kvitova 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, committing only five unforced errors, in the final.
November 27, 2015: “It’s been kind of relentless perfection. Since he lost in the first week of the year, he’s made the finals in every event he’s played. Four years ago, he was much more volatile and a little more susceptible to the emotional ebbs and flows. Now he does have the emotions still, but he flushes it out pretty quickly. He’s been able to make regrouping look easy, and it’s not. To me, it’s been kind of an emotionally led process. Novak is just comfortable out there, and when you are that good and you are comfortable and composed, it’s pretty tough to derail someone with those talents. He’s just in the zone right now. As a tennis fan, it’s quite a treat to watch, though it’s not much fun to play against.”
— Tennis Channel analyst Paul Annacone, former coach of Pete Sampras and Roger Federer, telling The New York Times at the start of the ATP Finals why Novak Djokovic has dominated men’s tennis this year, even more so than in 2011 when he also won three Grand Slam titles.
November 27, 2015: “It’s a great thing to be Top 10 now with the level of the game, but I’m still very hungry. I’m ready for more. I’ve had so many experiences in tennis that I still expect a lot from myself. So I’m very happy to be moving forward, but I also want to continue and not stop here.”
— Venus Williams, 35, and a 19-year veteran on the pro tour, after she climbed back into the Top Ten—ranking No. 7—for the first time in four years by winning her third tournament of the year, edging Karolina Pliskova 7-5, 7-6 (6) in the final of the Huajin Securities WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai.
