On her displeasure over an early French Open starting time: "I'm not a very good morning person. I'm No. 1 in the world, so I should have the right to say what time I want to play on the Centre Court." :eek:

"I am playing good tennis, so it's normal I beat the other players."
Nice slogan for 1997 :D:D:D:D!

On frequent comparisons to Tiger Woods: "It's all the time, 'Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods.' I am better than he is. I've been on top longer and I am younger. I'm just better." TOO TRUE!!! :)

On beating Monica Seles for the fifth straight time: "I don't know actually how I won this match. Maybe because I always beat her." OMG :(

To Lindsay Davenport at the start of their Manhattan Beach, California, match in 1997: "Do you want to get broken first game?" lmao

"I'm glad you're doing this story on us and not on the WNBA. We're so much prettier than all the other women in sports."
hmmmmm......she mustve thought long and hard on this 1 :) , but its all true...

[email protected] the Hingisova quotes.
I should have come in this thread earlier.
Martina can be so irritatingly funny at times. ;)

Here are some more quotes!

"to live I need oxygenate, not the French open"

Asked about her cooking skills on the long gone Athletes Direct site she said:' I know how to boil an egg'

"If only we had the Heineken Beer in the cooler, maybe it helped me to make the final point..."

"It`s hard to find a horse " Martina commenting on the down side of indoor tournaments

From a tournament in Berlin a few years back it was at the hight of the Monica Lewinski affair in the US and martina had been removed from her hotel suite by President Clinton(who as US Presedents do had rented the whole top floor of the hotel)Martina said the following day "Maybe he needs the rooms for all of his women

"Playing one of the Williamses is like playing the three of them at the same time."

Well that Lindsayquote is the best thing i've ever heard.But what i wanted to know is did Martina really broke her than or did Marti served first!:rolleyes:
I wish that i'd could seen Lindsay face when Marti said it!;)

That Lindsay quote is great! I'm sure it was all in good humor - they've hung out off-court before.

Martina is probably the best player to quote! She has these great, funny oneliners :)

The Lindsay-one was the best, but I also wanna know what happened! It's probably the same tournament than what SM said (Manhattan Beach 1997), does anyone remember??

I can't wait for tennis season (high school), I'm going to say that to my opponents, just to see their reaction.

I think a lot of them are in good humour.

And I LOVE that Cliff one. Sounds cute.

Martina is the sweetest thing in the world.

She's so clever and witty and articulate.

And duh. She IS the best!
