You're right... I just googled the quote. She said "I think I can kick her ass off."

I personally find players' bitchy comments rather funny. And just about every top player has had moments of bitchiness. I hope I'm remembering these right:

Steffi Graf: 1) I can't believe [Gabriela Sabatini] doesn't speak better English after living in America for so long. 2) I think it will be hard for [Martina Navratilova] to get used to being number two. I think she should retire. 3) (in response to Gabriela saying that Steffi was feeling too much stress from being number one) She's never been number one, so how should she know?

Martina Navratilova: 1) (after Shaun Stafford dared to smile during their match) I wanted to tell her to cut it out and act like a professional. 2) (about Monica Seles during their Wimbledon match) She sounds like a pig out here. 3) (about Steffi's assorted injuries) Steffi always has an excuse ready for when she loses.

Chris Evert: 1) (about the whole Graf-Seles debate) If someone had stabbed Martina, I would have won a lot more Slams, too. 2) (about Aranxta Sanchez Vicario) She knows I was injured when she beat me at the French, but she crowed about it anyways. She had very little respect. 3) (about Monica) I was very upset about her grunting when I lost to her in Houston. I think someone told her, because when I played her at the U.S. Open, the grunting wasn't as loud.

Gabriela Sabatini: 1) (when asked if she ever considered asking Steffi out to dinner since they were partners in doubles) No. She'd probably just stare at me.

Aranxta Sanchez Vicario: 1) (about Serena) She has no respect for anybody. 2) (about Jana Novotna) She has no respect for anybody. 3) (about Mary Joe Fernandez before their impending French semi) I usually beat her easy, so I'm not worried. (Aranxta went on to lose 6-2,6-2!)

Zina Garrison: 1) (about Lori McNeil after Zina lost the match on a netcord) She's the luckiest player in tennis. Things like that happen to her all the time. 2) (about Monica after she offered flowers to Zina at the start at the match) It was just a cheap ploy to win applause. It was all I could do to not smash the flowers in her face.

I'll do more players later, if you guys are interested...

Q. What is your relationship with other Russian players? You help each other? What is your relationship?


MARIA SHARAPOVA: Help each other (laughing)?

Q. To lose (laughing).

MARIA SHARAPOVA: To lose, yeah (laughing).

The latest quotable quote from Marat the hippo.

"I'm not fighting with myself. Oh, my God. That's how I am. You know, the story of the hippo? The hippo comes to the monkey and said, listen, I'm not a hippo. So, he paint himself like a zebra. He said but he's still a hippo. He said but look at you, you're painted like a zebra but you are a hippo. So then he goes, you know, like I want be a little parrot. So, he put the colours on him and he comes to the monkey and said but, sorry, you are a hippo. So, in the end, you know, he comes and said I'm happy to be a hippo. This is who I am. So, I have to be who I am and he's happy being a hippo."
-- Marat Safin, happy to be a hippo.

I just found this quote at http://www.tennis-x.com/quotes.php

"I'm not fighting with myself. Oh, my God. That's how I am. You know, the story of the hippo? The hippo comes to the monkey and said, listen, I'm not a hippo. So, he paint himself like a zebra. He said but he's still a hippo. He said but look at you, you're painted like a zebra but you are a hippo. So then he goes, you know, like I want be a little parrot. So, he put the colours on him and he comes to the monkey and said but, sorry, you are a hippo. So, in the end, you know, he comes and said I'm happy to be a hippo. This is who I am. So, I have to be who I am and he's happy being a hippo."
-- Marat Safin,

Instead of shopping wherever she goes, she'd better buy a dictionnary, and a brain as well

This one is not from a player but from a journalist opening the press conference after Sesil Karatancheva lost to Maria Sharapova :

Quote:
Was her posterior a little too high to kick?

Serena "I don't know maybe it's a lack of formal education" speaking on the war of words between Hingis and Richard W.

Spirlea "She thinks she's the fucking Venus Williams"

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
