Martina quotes!

These are great!

"What rivalry? I win every time”
A pretty young Martina, asked about the competition between her and other young tennis girls

'When I throw my raquet it helps me concentrate. It's just the way I am. It's better than to keep it inside.'

"I've never had big problems about being long on the court. During the U.S. Open I played three events (singles, doubles, mixed doubles) and some people asked me if I want to stay overnight on the court."

After playing the pregnant Tami Jones at the 1997 U.S Open: " I'm going to face two opponents in one time "

" Sometimes when you face Steffi, especially like two years ago, I didn't even want to go to Wimbledon because I saw the draw, first round Steffi. That wasn't very lucky for me. I was like 19 in the world and I had to play her first round, especially you know that on Thursday already. It's like, "Why do I have to practice? I don't even want to go there.

During a coin toss once, Hingis tweaked Davenport by saying, " Do you want me to serve or break you? ''

" I'm not a machine " After loosing only her 3rd match of 1997

"I'm here, I'm ready, and I'm back."

At an on-court interview with Pam Shriver at '98 Indian Wells, with Cliff Drysdale up in the booth:
Shriver: "Okay, Martina, send it back up to Cliffy."
Martina: (Confused look) "What am I supposed to send to him?"
Shriver: "Just say Back to you, Cliffy."
Martina: "Oh." (Supersmile as she understands) "Back to you, Cliffy." (Another supersmile)
Cliff Drysdale: "Oh, my. (Pause) "Hold me back."

These are great! They're from hingis.org!

Wonder if she's biting her tongue now, especially about winning all the time.

LOL @ the 'Why do I have to practice, I don't even want to go there'

She put up a pretty good fight I seem to remember (and she had beaten Steffi the last time they played) - although Steffi ran away with it towards the end in emphatic style.

Mister. How many matches has she lost since she made that comment? A little humility can be learnt by biting tongues. Its been proven.

Ohhh they're great, i liked the Lindsay one too

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

This Hingis can be funny when she wants after all!

I found the Davenport's one mean but pretty hilarious actually!
