I didn't get beat. I just ran out of time.
"The man who said "I'd rather be lucky than good" saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose."
These are jewels ones from a I got as a gift back when I was a teaching pro and coach. The book is entitled, The Tennis Lover's Book of Wisdom, compiled and edited by Criswell Freeman.
Tennis is a perfect combination of violent action taking place in an atmosphere of total tranquility.
Tennis is the sport for a lifetime.
The basic law of tennis: Learn to hit the same old boring winner.
Learn a lesson every time you lose.
We're playing a sport. A lot of times, guys forget it's a game. That's not how it should be, it should be fun.
Fortune favors the brave.
Pressure is the ultimate lie detector. That's when strokes speak the truth.
Sportsmanship is the essence of the game.
How about the funniest tennis quotes?
"80% of the women on the WTA Tour are fat, lazy pigs. I'm sorry, I was wrong in saying that---it's 85%." Richard Krajicek
"I still break racquets, but now in a positive way." Goran Ivanisevic
"Winning a tennis match is easy. All you have to do is win the last point."--Vitas Gerulaitis
when and against whom did these 2 happen ???
This is a classic
^Yeah...when was this one?^ I'm guessing it was against Sesil Karatancheva? Total guess, though. Or maybe against someone who speaks French, like Justine?
This one was in either the 4th rd or the qtrs of Roland Garos against Pete. Courier had won the first two sets and was probably feeling good..until Pete got tired and started serving bombs and shortening the points. If I recall correctly, Pete won the last 3 sets 5, 4 and 4....a bit like the Lendl over Mac 84 final.
'96 was the year Pete had his only great run there. He had beaten the great Sergi Bruguera earlier that week.
haha, i love that line: "got tired and started serving bombs."
But 90mph bullets? Surely they were'nt THAT slow.
Pete played well in the qtr final match. Remember pete's a spot server, his serve is very unique & you can never read 'em. The court did play a bit fast towards the end of the match. Courier was pretty much done, once pete got into a groove.
OMG THIS ****ENNN IDIOT,
WHat is wrong with you?
You can't even hit the ball!
You stupid pusher
GO PLAY SOME REAL TENNIS!
and one more
And then i hit the ball out of the court.
"Tennis is a mental game. In terms of playing ability there is nothing between number 1 and 100. Instead, it's a question of who believes and who wants it more? Which player is going to fight the hardest in the big points? These are the things that redetermine who is the champion."
i saw this on the adidas website
Guess this was said to an umpire.
Any more details ? What was the question and who did he say this to ?
