Here are some interesting things that the top tennis players and coaches in the
world said:

“I would so like to be Lenny Kravitz.”
– Roger Federer.-

“Sometimes, actually, I see myself a little bit in him sometimes, you know,
talking to his coach, you know, yelling a couple of negative words towards the box,
which it’s good to see I’m not the only one.”
– Tommy Haas on Andy Murray.-

“I would honestly rather lose to the same guy twice than lose to two different guys.
I think if I lost to two different players I would think I wasn’t playing well, but with one
guy I can think ‘OK, this guy is on a roll’. It’s just easier to digest.”
-Roger Federer on his losses to Guillermo Canas this year at
Indian Wells and Miami.-

“For me it’s something that doesn’t quite fit into the schedule. It’s going to be
real tough to go from Houston all the way over to Monte Carlo, then come
back just for a week or two to train for Rome. For the Americans, that tournament
has never been exactly the easiest one in the schedule. I’m not going to be able
to make it to that one.”
– James Blake on skipping the Masters Series Monte Carlo.-

I wore that to a sixth-grade dance.”
-Robby Ginepri on Vince Spadea’s outfit in Miami.-

“I hope guys don’t go into it already beaten. That happened when Pete was around.
Guys definitely in the locker room felt like, a match against Pete Sampras,
it was time to book your flight for the next day.”
– James Blake on the intimidation factor against players facing Roger Federer.-

“The good thing about him is that he doesn’t do anything special but he wins
most of his matches easily. That means that he’s good.
– Carlos Moya on Andy Murray.-

“It’s like a book. It’s the first chapter. You don’t know what’s in the middle and
you don’t know what’s in the end. That’s what the coolest thing is. Andy has an
opportunity to make an incredible book.”
– Brad Gilbert on coaching Andy Murray after coaching Andre Agassi and
Andy Roddick.-

“The Argentineans practice on the court for two hours a day, then they must
practice in front of a mirror for two more hour saying ‘I’m not guilty.'”
– Vince Spadea on the Argentines on the men’s tour and drug testing.-

“A great coach can lead you to a place where you don’t need him any more.”
– Andre Agassi on Brad Gilbert.-
