Kim Clijsters Quotes

Hey everyone! A little while back, I was asked what my favourite quote was. I thought about quotes from Kim, and all I knew of was "You don't have to hate your opponents to beat them." Does anyone know any other good quotes from Kim in English? If so, post them below.

Re: Kim Clijsters Quotes

Mine is:
"When it's raining, it's raining on both sides of the court" when asked if starting rain (I guess it was at Roland Garros) did not influence the outcome of the match.

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!

Re: Kim Clijsters Quotes

A lot of people are going to be disappointed to see technology take over a little bit in the sport. But we're in 2006. For me, it's time to change."
-- Kim Clijsters on the video replay challenge in Miami.

"Pushing off is a lot tougher and I prefer to have the firm ground when as soon as I slide I can push back off. That's one of the advantages I have, that I'm strong enough to do that on the hardcourt. On the claycourt, it's tougher. You push off but keep sliding."
-- Kim Clijsters on her affinity for sliding/doing the splits on hardcourt as opposed to sliding around on the clay.

"It's something that I really look forward to as well. I have a very young mom as well and I think that's something that I would like to be as well. I'm not going to say that I may quit (tennis) completely. Who knows?"
-- Kim Clijsters back in March on her want of children

"I think one of the reasons why I stay fresh in between tournaments and enjoy playing at this time of year is I try to take as much time off as possible in between. I will rest and chill out for 4-5 days then train for the last 2-3. I think some girls can overtrain in their time off and that doesn't make them as fresh then."
-- Kim Clijsters' recipe for tournament success during the year.

"You know, I know that in a lot of Grand Slams I think, you know, women's tennis, you know, I mean if you watch -- you know, I'm in the committee of the WTA and, you know, we get a lot of the results back from the Grand Slams and stuff. And, you know, women's tennis, at the moment, I think is a little bit more popular I think, if you compare them to, you know, whatever, TV ratings and stuff like that."
-- Kim Clijsters on the state of women's tennis, and, you know, stuff.

“It’s a feeling I can’t describe. Out there on court, I got butterflies in my stomach. It hasn’t really sunk in yet. This is a very special day I'll never forget. No matter what will happen the rest of my career, no one will ever take that away from me. It's something that I will always have on my resume, so I'll definitely celebrate a little.”
-- Kim Clijsters on being the new No. 1.

"I'm not a good actor or anything. I don't see myself doing anything in that direction. It creates more opportunities to expand yourself and your personality. You just have to be yourself. That's what Serena and Venus are doing."
-- Kim Clijsters, whose personality has expanded about as far as it's going to get.

"As long as the results are good then you take it and everything that comes with it, but after a while you definitely need the rest. I need some time off. There's the Fed Cup in about a month so I won't be doing anything until then. Maybe the week before I'll start hitting but I won't do anything for the next two or three weeks." -- 19-year-old Kim Clijsters, taking a month break after getting spanked by Serena in Miami.

"It's like all of my press conference at the moment are about Venus and Serena. I would really appreciate it if they were about my tennis or something." -- Kim Clijsters.

"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

Re: Kim Clijsters Quotes

I know that I'm going to have to work hard, keep working hard, and not because of this victory think, "I'm back." I don't think like that. I'll definitely work hard. Things are not going to be easy. I might lose first round next week. You never know.
Kim Clijsters

I think that's why I'm playing so well - I'm enjoying myself.
Kim Clijsters

When I marry my name will not change.
Kim Clijsters

You can wake me up now - these last four weeks in America have been incredible.
Kim Clijsters

You know, it doesn't happen that often that you have the crowd support behind you straightaway from the beginning of the match.
Kim Clijsters

Re: Kim Clijsters Quotes

Kim talks about how you don't have to hate your opponent to beat them (see quote above). This is an interview with US commentators at the 2005 US Open. She gives the example of Roger Federee, about how he is a really nice guy and we wins a ton.
