I'd like to think that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis.
Venus Williams

Tennis is not a gentle game. Psychologically, it is vicious. That people are only just beginning to come to terms with this fact illustrates just how big a con trick has been perpetrated on the non-playing tennis public - and even a few players, usually losing players - for decades.
Richard Evans

What a polite game tennis is. The chief word in it seems to be "sorry" and admiration of each other's play crosses the net as frequently as the ball.
James Matthew Barrie

Good shot, bad luck, and hell are the five basic words to be used in a game of tennis, though these, of course, can be slightly amplified.
Virginia Graham

The depressing thing about tennis is that no matter how good I get, I'll never be as good as a wall.
Mitch Hedberg

An otherwise happily married couple may turn a mixed doubles game into a scene from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.
Rod Laver

When the Williams sisters play tennis, it gets pretty hot. When they start grunting, I'm in.
Robin Williams

Ever since that day when I was 11 years old, and I wasn't allowed in a photo because I wasn't wearing a tennis skirt, I knew that I wanted to change the sport.
Billie Jean King

Tennis belongs to the individualistic past - a hero, or at most a pair of friends or lovers, against the world.
Jacques Barzun

When I play, I feel like in a theatre, why should I look ugly then, because I'm a tennis player?
Anna Kournikova

I have always considered tennis as a combat in an arena between two gladiators who have their racquets and their courage as their weapons.
Yannick Noah

Love is nothing in tennis, but in life it's everything.
Author Unknown

The moment of victory is much too short to live for that and nothing else.
Martina Navratilova

Tennis is an addiction that once it has truly hooked a man will not let him go.
Russell Lynes

Ladies, here's a hint. If you're up against a girl with big boobs, bring her to the net and make her hit backhand volleys. That's the hardest shot for the well-endowed.
Billie Jean King

When I was 40, my doctor advised me that a man in his 40s shouldn't play tennis. I heeded his advice carefully and could hardly wait until I reached 50 to start again.
Hugo L. Black

The serve was invented so that the net could play.
Bill Cosby

Though your game is hardly the best
You can fray your opponent's nerves
By methodically bouncing the ball
At least ten times before your serves.
Arnold J. Zarett

Tennis was never work for me, tennis was fun. And the tougher the battle and the longer the match, the more fun I had.
Jimmy Connors

Why has slamming a ball with a racquet become so obsessive a pleasure for so many of us? It seems clear to me that a primary attraction of the sport is the opportunity it gives to release aggression physically without being arrested for felonious assault.
Nat Hentoff

I hate to lose more than I love to win.
Jimmy Connors

But that won't give me a free hand to hold the beer.
Billy Carter
While being taught a two-handed backhand shot.

Tennis begins with love.
Author Unknown

The primary conception of tennis is to get the ball over the net and at the same time to keep it within bounds of the court; failing this, within the borders of the neighborhood.
Elliot Chaze

The cunning competitor plays on the other party's guilt. Continuously praise your opponent's shots, and you'll notice how he begins to press. Self-beratement also serves to balance a guilty conscience for being successful and makes your opponent disturbed for upsetting you so. If on occasion you call one of your opponent's "out" shots "in," then later on you can innocently call an "in" shot "out" on a crucial play. Practice saying "Good try," sincerely; then you can call a lot of close shots "out" and get away with it.
Theodor Saretsky

Speed in tennis is a strange mixture of intuition, guesswork, footwork and hair-trigger reflexes. Many of the players famed for quickness on court would finish dead last in a field of schoolgirls in a race over any distance more than ten yards.
Eugene Scott

The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed.
Martina Navratilova

In tennis the addict moves about a hard rectangle and seeks to ambush a fuzzy ball with a modified snow-shoe.
Elliot Chaze

It's difficult for most people to imagine the creative process in tennis. Seemingly it's just an athletic matter of hitting the ball consistently well within the boundaries of the court. That analysis is just as specious as thinking that the difficulty in portraying King Lear on stage is learning all the lines.
Virginia Wade

He's the most gifted player that I've ever seen in my life. I've seen a lot of people play. I've seen the Lavers, I played against some of the great players-the Samprases, Beckers, Connors, Borgs, you name it. This guy could be the greatest of all time. That, to me, says it all. He's probably the greatest player that ever lived. He can beat half the guys with his eyes closed!
John McEnroe
On Roger Federer.
