Often used phrases by players

Just a random thread, because it's always amused me how some players have certain catchphrases or particular phrases that they use. For example, Ivanovic who seems to say 'Try and be aggressive'. She says that SO much, even in a Monica Seles tribute video she snuck it in

There was Justine with 'for sure' too. Anymore you can think of?

Re: Often used phrases by players

Is "you know" a phrase?

I was gonna say.

One thing I've noticed with Serena over the years is that when she's sometimes asked a question by a reporter, she answers it with exactly the same content as the question before adding more to her answer.

Example: - Do you feel that you can play better?
- I definitely feel like I can play better...

(from a recent interview)
- Have you ever had a quirky streak like that?
- I've never had a quirky streak like that...

Random. Some may find it insignificant and stupid, but I just found it interesting.

Re: Often used phrases by players

Ana is more EXCITING in her interviews than she TRY AND BE AGGRESSIVE.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
