“He’s the man who doesn’t grumble, who doesn’t sweat. While other’s plead for reassurance; he is his own helping hand. Experts have written him off. Five years have passed since he last won a grand slam. But he is the renaissance man. And we are privileged to be in his presence.” Channel 7 promo for the 2017 final (16.03 onwards)

 
"She won Rome and Madrid." -- Serena

“What I will say about sport, I think why people love sport so much, is because you see everything in a line. In that moment there is no do-over, there’s no retake, there is no voice-over. It’s triumph and disaster witnessed in real-time. This is why people live and die for sport, because you can’t fake it. You can’t. It’s either you do it or you don’t. People relate to the champion. They also relate to the person also who didn’t win because we all have those moments in our life. Is it an athlete’s job to inspire? Inherently what I think athletes do at a top level inspires people, but each person takes that responsibility differently.” -- Venus
 
Just watching the broadcast of Roddick and Fish during the USO final. So many good quotes, anecdotes and stories. They even get a few bigger donors of the broadcast on it. One of them asks i

Would Isner would be top 100 had he had Gasquet's serve?
Roddick - Absolutely not
Fish - I don't know man, there's some bad players in the top 100

Lol
 
I thought it was Safin but could be Agassi. I'm an extremely old man so my memory isn't what it once was.
Haha, i do recall Agassi saying something like this. Probably Safin too.

About ernests' office job for trillionaire papa. Hmmm. I just don't see him being happy and engaged into his forties in an office. Not sure if he will need papa's money. Maybe he can be a part of a foundation, or get into broadcasting.

Broadcasting would be good…he keeps it real like few others.
 
I'm the best ever. I'm the most brutal and vicious, and most ruthless champion there's ever been. There's no one can stop me. Nadal is a conqueror? No, I'm Alexander, he's no Alexander. I'm the best ever. There's never been anybody as ruthless. I'm Rod Laver,I'm Bjorn Borg. There's no one like me. I'm from their cloth. There's no one that can match me. My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah.

- Roger Federer

This quote had every tennis player/fan gushing over that phreak.
Well his talent got some truly humiliating losses to this Czech reject; esp. at the end after their 1985 USO Final match-up! McEnroe was so gifted that he gave up the first set, up a break at 5-2 and preceded to give it all back, losing the TB, and was then unceremoniously supplanted as #1 by that DOWER tennis hack from across the pond! Lendl would go on to own both McEnroe and Connors; matches big and small even though more noteworthy in the tennis history books! :rolleyes: :p ;)
