We were actually joking about it in the locker room yesterday. She goes `Oh I'm so sick of all these questions'. I said `Well so am I, why don't we just boycott it all." -- Kim Clijsters, on her and Serena Williams tiring of media questions about their rivalry

thought that was a cute one!

Maybe he didn't mean top pro, but top pro.

"I think people like me for my tennis."-Anna Kournikova.

"I don't want her back there. I don't even want her looking in that direction of Manhattan."
-Andre Agassi, joking upon hearing that after Monica Seles visited the stock market, the Dow Jones went down by over 300 points.

"Hey, buddy, if you have something to say come down on court and say it to my face."
-Cory Ann Avants, during her US Open against Eva Birnerova, upon discovering Eva's coach mocking Cory's on court facial expressions.

"I couldn't believe it. I was saying to myself "THAT is a top 10 player?!" All she does is moonball. She is not very good. It was the worst match I've ever played...I beat myself.
-Nadia Petrova, after losing to Amanda Coetzer.

Reporter (to Kim Clijsters): Kim, Patrick Mcenroe said he didn't think you could win the US Open because you didn't want it enough. He said you weren't hungry enough.

Kim Clijsters: Oh, I'm hungry. I didn't have my breakfast this morning so I'm very hungry. (smiling)

Alexandra Stevenson
Four years after she had her five minutes of fame, Stevenson admits she still
dreams of living the Hollywood high life.

Even as she claws her way toward the tennis big time, the lovely daughter of
basketball legend Julius Erving is planning a career as a model or actress.

J.Lo, watch out. "I'm getting ready," Stevenson warns the world.

Still just 21, Stevenson hit the headlines when she made it from nowhere to the
semifinals at Wimbledon.

When reporters found out she was Dr. J's secret love child, she became
front-page news worldwide.

Her tennis game fell apart, but she has been working her way back to the top
ever since.

She never had to worry about her stunning looks - and muses about the day
she'll be so famous that designers will be lining up to let her wear their sexy
outfits.

"That would be really cool," she said.

"Not yet. It's my first day on the job. Give me some time."
Marat Safin on not breaking a racquet in his first match of the year -2002- against M.Chang in Auckland.

"Then there's the matter of that coaching vacancy. "I can't understand it," Safin says with mock earnestness. "You get to spend 24 hours a day around me. That should be hard to resist, shouldn't it?"

[during a web chat]
Girl: "Say something to me Marat!!"
Marat: " Something."

Marat Safin:"But normally when you talk to yourself [on court] you say; 'I love you, you're a good guy, but don't miss next time, okay.' "

[after a practise session with Marc Rossett at his Geneva tennis club]
Interviewer: "How did you find Marc [Rossett]?"
Marat: "Old."

One silly reporter asked what the difference was between him and Anna Kournikova (I guess he was getting at the sex symbol aspect, dunno) ... Marat looked disgusted and said "She is woman ... I am man".

Marat Safin:"I am not a singer or a rock star. Tennis is tennis. If you want to see a clown, go to a circus."

Marat Safin: "To be honest, sometimes I really don't feel like hitting the ball on the court - I am so lazy."

Marat Safin:"And how to say this one? The Russian one, doesn't have a bad one also. What is his name, the young one, the tall one? This guy, you know (laughter)? The one not playing too bad. He beat once Sampras in the finals of US Open. Do you know him (laughter)? Safin, maybe Safin? I mean, I don't know, I consider myself I don't have a bad backhand. Not super, but I'm working on it."


Marat Safin: "If the crowd is like this with me tomorrow, I have no chance to be somebody in the world. "Maybe I'll wear a sign on my head that says, 'I'm Marat Safin.'"

Safin: "I'm starting to take it personally, maybe nobody loves me." Safin on not finding a coach

Safin: "I have to play good tennis to show them I'm not the yo-yo from Moscow"


Safin: "We are just tennis players. Who cares about us?"


Q. But the argument was about what?
MARAT SAFIN: About I pull my pants down. Can you believe it (smiling)?
Q. Why did you pull your pants down? What was the argument?>
MARAT SAFIN: Because? I don't know why. Because, because. I did it. It just happened.


Q. Only cook?
MARAT SAFIN: Yeah. What else I need?
Q. I don't know.
MARAT SAFIN: You are hot temper, like hot Italian man. You always think about one thing.
Q. The Italian and Russian are not very different.
MARAT SAFIN: No, because we have already too much of this. So already we get to another stage where sometimes you need to rest even from this (smiling).
Q. You become older, but he is not.
MARAT SAFIN: Yeah, he becomes younger (laughter). Is good...



Q. Do you know him?
MARAT SAFIN: No, not personally. Friend of the friend of the friend of the concierge of the hotel where he is staying (laughing).



Q. You need the atmosphere? Some players couldn't care less.
MARAT SAFIN: Yeah, sure, whatever they can say. But I'm sure that they are not really happy to play in an empty court when even the courts doesn't want to watch this match.



Q. In your favor, yes. I mean, being a little different.
MARAT SAFIN: Yeah, but, darling, come on, I have quite decent career.



Q. I guess I would still argue...
MARAT SAFIN: Yeah, it's okay, you can argue. You don't have to tell me.

Vera Zvonareva, Anastacia Myskina

Ana Ivanovic, Tatiana Golovin, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina
