Billie Jean King

When you lose a couple of times, it makes you realize how difficult it is to win.
Steffi Graf

Tennis: a racquet sport in which two players compete to see who has the shortest temper, the worst memory, the poorest eyesight, and the slowest watch.
Author Unknown

Tennis is more than just a sport. It's an art, like the ballet. Or like a performance in the theater. When I step on the court I feel like Anna Pavlova. Or like Adelina Patti. Or even like Sarah Bernhardt. I see the footlights in front of me. I hear the whisperings of the audience. I feel an icy shudder. Win or die! Now or never! It's the crisis of my life.
Bill Tilden

I let my racket do the talking. That's what I am all about, really. I just go out and win tennis matches.

Victory is fleeting. Losing is forever.
Billie Jean King

You cannot be serious!
John McEnroe
His famous catchphrase directed towards an umpire during a match at Wimbledon in 1981.

New Yorkers love it when you spill your guts out there. Spill your guts at Wimbledon and they make you stop and clean it up.
Jimmy Connors

One day you can be a kid, but another day you have to be like this is your job, you play tennis. You have to work for that.
Martina Hingis

Tennis can be a grind and there's always the danger of going stale if you think about it too much. You can get embittered if you train too hard and have nothing else on your mind. You have to be able to relax between matches and between tournaments.
Maureen Connolly

What is the single most important quality in a tennis champion? I would have to say desire, staying in there and winning matches when you are not playing that well.
John McEnroe

If you can react the same way to winning and losing, that's a big accomplishment. That quality is important because it stays with you the rest of your life, and there's going to be a life after tennis that's a lot longer than your tennis life.
Chris Evert

The fifth set is not about tennis, it's about nerves.
Boris Becker

What makes something special is not just what you have to gain, but what you feel there is to lose.
Andre Agassi

I play each point like my life depends on it.
Rafael Nadal

My motto is: I'm alive, so that means I can do anything.
Venus Williams
July 4 2005 after overcoming Lindsey Davenport 4-6, 7-6, 9-7.

My game is a lot about footwork. If I move well - I play well.
Roger Federer

Sampras, Sampras, Sampras, Sampras and Sampras.

She's as mean as a snake. She reminds me of me.

We get criticized for showing no personality, and then we get penalized when we do.

World number 1.

The mark of great sportsmen is not how good they are at their best, but how good they are at their worst.
Martina Navratilova

Whoever said, "It's not whether you win or lose that counts," probably lost.
Martina Navratilova

Tennis just a game, family is forever.
Serena Williams

If you can keep playing tennis when somebody is shooting a gun down the street, that's concentration. I didn't grow up playing at the country club.
Serena Williams
Quoted in The Sunday Times, June 2002.

A champion is afraid of losing. Everyone else is afraid of winning.
Billie Jean King

The sport of choice for the urban poor is basketball. The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is bowling. The sport of choice for front-line workers is football. The sport of choice for supervisors is baseball. The sport of choice for middle management is tennis. The sport of choice for corporate officers is golf. Conclusion: The higher you are in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.
