View Full Version : Some interesting tennis player quotes.

I was just looking on some quotes site for a project for uni but I got a little side tracked and started to look up some tennis quotes. One I found interesting was spoken by Monica Seles in 1991:

"There was such anticipation before her matches. Everybody wondered about Suzanne, what she would wear, what she would look like. I would love to be like that. Everything is too simple in tennis now. Wouldn’t it be neat to be a mystery woman and bring high fashion back to the sport? To be like Suzanne ... out there but untouchable?... unreachable?" - As quoted in Sports Illustrated, p. 65 (May 27, 1991).

It seems as though Monica's thought back then has become a reality. For the last 5yrs or so, fashion has become a big part of Womens Tennis and two of the icons of tennis fashion are Venus and Serena who I guess at the moment you could deem as "untouchable" or "unreachable" (well these statements are more so for Serena I guess).

I might see what else I can dig up. I find it interesting in looking on things said in the past by people and then it comes to fruition!

Monica Seles on why she admired the controversial, rich, and flamboyantly independent rock star, Madonna:

"Madonna has total control over her life, and not many women have that."
-As quoted in Sports Illustrated, p. 63 (May 27, 1991).
