Who says Tennis is "All Play and No Fun"?

"Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row"

– after finally beating Jimmy Connors at the 1979 Masters following sixteen straight losses.

Grass is for cows
--- Ivan Lendl said about Wimbledon grass court ( won 8 Grand Slams but not the Wimbledon)

Here is Novak Djokovic imitating Maria Sharapova

And, finally this is the opening scene from the movie Match Point by Woody Allen

"Christopher "Chris" Wilton: The man who said "I'd rather be lucky than good" saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose."
