Immortal words from Kim Clijsters: "It's raining on both sides of the court"

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!

"If you saw me with my clothes off you'd see that my body is in great shape and ready to take on the world."
-- Anna Kournikova in March on her impending tour comeback. If we saw you with your clothes off we'd...probably be looking at an issue of Playboy five years from now.


"People seem to forget that Anna (Kournikova) isn't in the picture anymore. It's Maria-time now."
-- Maria Sharapova in Sports Illustrated. Maria-time, is that like Hammer-time?

"She's not real any more. She doesn't really like tennis. You can tell. She's not playing from the heart. It's all contrived. She just wants to look good."
-- Mats Wilander, getting his kick-her-when-she's-down licks in on Serena.

"Honestly, I could get in a car accident today and never play tennis again, and then I wouldn't have anything to fall back on. But fortunately enough, I do."
-- Serena Williams on maintaining her outside interests. Yes, it's important to have something to fall back on in case you're suddenly not a billionaire any more.



"I'll give you the dramatic version, as I am an actress. I stretched and I dove for the ball. Well, I didn't quite dive. I was extremely stoked, but unfortunately during that point, I hurt my knee."
-- Serena Williams the actress on how she reinjured her knee in San Diego. That explanation was about as good as the acting.
"I'm an actress, model and athlete, and I'd put athlete third on the list."
-- Serena Williams flashback quote.



"No, I don't read the papers. I just look at the pictures."
-- Serena Williams.

"My goal in a couple of years is to try to build a successful fashion house like Armani or Versace. I want that more than anything."
-- Serena Williams on fashion trumping tennis.

OMG, most of these are hilarious. Anna's, Martina's (hingis) and Serena's have to be the best.

On the mens side, Roddick and Safin crack me up


There are too many to quote. great stuff though.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

MARAT SAFIN:

"First, the hormones are stirred. Second, the superfluous excitement before a start of a match goes. And I read somewhere, that when a person is very sexual then he's also very ingenious."

"I am a man and I do not always look in the mirror, and frankly I don't really care how I look."

"Come on, I'm 24, man, a little bit too old to take care of."

"I'm enjoying my sport and I'm happy to be here in Paris instead of cleaning the streets in Moscow."

"I don't understand this. So why we don't -- why we don't put any fines to the chair umpires when they make easiest mistakes? If I would lose, I would lose because of this guy. The machine doesn't work, but I think he has an ear, no?"

"Everybody. Everybody's great. We all get along. We go out to dinner or the bars, I get along with everyone. That's the thing with men's tennis. We compete. Then we leave the court and we are friends. We go to eat, we go to bars. Just because I play you in a match, I have to hate you? No."

"just...the problem is that you have to pay after you break the racket. (laughter) you have to pay a fine. no, no, they say thank you, you are doing well."

Vera Zvonareva, Anastacia Myskina

Ana Ivanovic, Tatiana Golovin, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina

"Anything which draws attention to me because I am so attractive."
-- Venus Williams on what works in her fashion world


"I talked with Tom Hanks. I saw that movie 'Turner and Hooch' at least 50 times. It took all my guts to go up to him. I went up to him, I was like, 'Can I have a picture?' We talked acting; he wanted to know what I was doing. We talked a little tennis. I mean, he knew all about myself and my sister."
-- The name-dropping Serena Williams, the undereducated ambassador of tennis.

"Tennis whites are boring, unless it's Wimbledon, where it's classy."
-- From the wisdom of fashion designer Serena Williams.


"Hey -- you guys with the ladder. If you come here I'll buy you pizza."
-- Andy Roddick, calling out to firefighters in the process of rescuing Roddick and other hotel guests from a fire in Rome.

"I think I said I would put on a skirt if I dropped serve again."
-- Tim Henman after his third-round win over Nicolas Massu in Monte Carlo. That should get the WTA supporters fired up.

"If you saw me with my clothes off you'd see that my body is in great shape and ready to take on the world...I could snap my fingers and have any man I wanted but I have too much respect for myself for that...People can look then wonder about the taste and the sensuous delights of the dish, but when it comes down to it they simply can't afford such an expensive luxury."
-- Anna Kournikova, looking for some media attention while down in Australia in March. Concerning the clothes thing, we don't believe it -- prove it.


"(It's) a corset design making me look very, very slim and trim. I call it a corset dress. Very Hollywood glamour with the silk."
-- Serena Williams on her new Greecian serving girl tennis dress, which makes her look "very, very slim" when she looks in that funhouse mirror that is her reality. We hear stripes are slimming, next time try stripes.


"I've been getting my reel together. I think they are looking at me more as an actress because I have a lot of potential and a lot of skills."
-- The removed-from-reality Serena Williams, who as an actress has skills. Just ask her

"I'd like to get married and have children sometime, but sometimes I feel I'm a child myself so it's a little early yet."
-- Former No. 1 and broadcast announcer Martina Hingis.


"They've lost my page -- somebody ripped it out. But I'm the main sponsor for the tour, I'm the guy who paid the most fines. So they should give me respect. There should be a page saying 'This is the guy who paid the most fines.' I don't exist now, I'm a ghost, so I can do whatever I want."
-- Goran Ivanisevic on being left out of the 2004 ATP Player Guide.
