John McEnroe quotes

Jul 14 2017

That to me is like a no-brainer – it would be huge. A lot of the rap guys started wearing those clothes that seem to be four sizes too big for them. And they wear the hats without taking the tags off. They were laughing all the way to the bank. And I'm like: 'They're wearing these shorts that go down to their ankles. This is crazy that people think this makes sense. Let's get some regular underwear, three pairs for 15 bucks – we'll all go home happy. But then I think, what an.feedback

What's Paire complaining about now?feedback

Jul 14 2017

I put myself inside their head. But it's not me playing – my style's different and I don't want it to be like, Well, if I played, I'd do this.' It's not about me, it's about them.feedback

Jul 14 2017

Ninety-nine percent of the time I'm wearing Bjorn Borg underwear.feedback

Jul 14 2017

In essence, my story for the last 15 years has been the continual process of trying to figure it out for myself.feedback

Jul 11 2017

Golden opportunity to put Novak Djokovic the three-time champion on Centre Court. The crowd would love that obviously.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Sexism

If there's one thing I've always done it's speak my mind. It's got me into trouble in the past, as everyone knows, but at least people know what I'm thinking.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Sexism

Thanks to my daughters in large part, I now realize how important it is for young girls to have the same opportunities as boys to take part in physical activity. I am proud to be a feminist.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Sexism

Hopefully, over the past few years I've made some progress in grudgingly figuring out how to become a better person, and am now known for more than just hitting a tennis ball and getting upset and yelling at linesmen and umpires. But I'll leave that for you to judge.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Sexism

It's what they've achieved in terms of breaking into what remains a white, middle-class sport that is most impressive.feedback

Jul 04 2017

So we're starting to say: 'Wait a minute, is this possible with him [Djokovic]?feedback

Jul 04 2017

I think there's a big difference, one is the age, but two the health. I think this (Djokovic's form) isn't a physical thing, this is more a mental thing.feedback

Jul 04 2017

If you're distracted you're not the same player. When he [Woods] had the issues with his wife and then he seemed to go completely off the rails and has never been even close to being the same player.feedback

Jul 04 2017

It's no good for anyone if a player in a one-on-one sport can't compete on an equal level. I don't know who the first lucky loser was but he will have been looking out there and saying, I could have been playing on the Centre Court at Wimbledon.feedback

Jul 01 2017

It was very difficult for her. She felt like the four she had won in a row before that didn't count, because she had missed this one. That's why she's who she is. She's never looking back feeling content, she's always looking forward to the next thing.feedback

Jun 29 2017

She could overcome some situations where players would choke because she's been in it so many times, so many situations at Wimbledon, the US Open, etc.feedback

Jun 28 2017

It would have been better not to have said it. I didn't realize it would create something like this. It would have been easier to leave it. Look, she's a great player and it's apples and oranges. This is not something that has been earth shattering, that I feel there's a difference in the level of the women and the men.feedback

Jun 28 2017

Obviously if it wasn't for Serena, American tennis would even be in a lot deeper trouble.feedback

Jun 28 2017

I don't want anything to go wrong with Serena because she's pregnant. I don't want to upset her or whatever it was. She's – I think she was doing a tongue-in-cheek as well.feedback

Jun 28 2017

I mean, he's known as the Zen Master, like a master talker, and then he's not talking to anybody. So this whole thing seems to have gone completely off the rails.feedback

Jun 28 2017

I thought, this kid's got the right attitude.feedback

Jun 27 2017

No. Why don't you combine, just solve the problem – I'm sure the men would be all for this – the men and women play together and then we don't have to guess.feedback

Jun 27 2017

If she played the men's circuit she'd be like 700 in the world. That doesn't mean I don't think Serena is an incredible player. I do.feedback

Jun 26 2017

I just haven't seen that in any other sport, and I haven't seen it in tennis. If she had to just play the men's circuit, it would be an entirely different story.feedback

Jun 26 2017

If she played the men's circuit she'd be, like, 700 in the world. That doesn't mean I don't think Serena is an incredible player, and I suppose anything's possible; maybe at some point a women's tennis player can be better than anybody.feedback

Jun 26 2017

Well, because if she was in, if she played the men's circuit, she'd be like 700 in the world.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Twitter

You're watching, to me, the greatest player to ever play the game.feedback

Jun 26 2017

I can't see it lasting if he is only coming around for very brief moments. But if they got a window of a month, obviously it is a totally different situation entirely.feedback

Jun 26 2017

It looks great on paper when you bring in Andre Agassi, and it is great for tennis. He did have this career renaissance so there are reasons why it makes sense, but it is hard to think that it could make sense so fast. That does not necessarily translate to killer instinct. It does not automatically lose it. But you don't want to get into a situation where it is all peace and love, and then you have to go out and stomp on somebody's head in competition.feedback

Jun 26 2017

But if she had to just play the circuit -- the men's circuit -- that would be an entirely different story.feedback

Jun 25 2017

Just when it appeared that Murray and Djokovic had finally blown by those two guys, now those two guys have blown by them. I think Andy just had to put in so much effort [at the end of 2016]. While with Novak, I suppose we shouldn't be totally shocked that after being the first guy in 47 years to hold all four slams, there would be a letdown.feedback

Jun 25 2017

I mean my kids don't think I can beat her anymore. Maybe I should get her now because she's pregnant.feedback

Jun 25 2017

I am imagining it is a work in progress. But it is a combination of things – whatever is going on off the court. He had an injury [a year ago], a let-down, and all this stuff contributes to it. I kept thinking it was going to get better.feedback

Jun 25 2017

We will have to look at this in a couple of years. It is pretty quick to say: 'Whoa!' He's 30, but we were talking about him blowing past Federer [in terms of grand slam wins] only at Wimbledon last year. Or at the very least Nadal. Nobody is sure what is wrong really.feedback

Jun 25 2017

I think it's safe to say that it's tougher to stay there than get there. These guys have had phenomenal careers – Novak at 12 grand slams already. I suppose we shouldn't be totally shocked after being the first guy in 47 years to hold all four slams that there would be a let-down.feedback

Jun 23 2017

It's crazy to treat a guy that way. It seems like, even if it would be better for both guys if they weren't there -- the Knicks and him -- the whole thing just seems, I can't believe how bungled this has gotten.feedback

Jun 23 2017

So I didn't put 2 and 2 together and I didn't know what had happened or really what had transpired. So maybe Jim was already uncomfortable because of past history or whatever and then when Charles and the security guys started to go at it, even before they started to come up to him I was like, Uh oh, this is not going to go well, at all.feedback

Jun 23 2017

It's like a total train wreck. I mean, he's known as the Zen Master, like a master talker, and then he's not talking to anybody. So this whole thing seems to have gone completely off the rails.feedback

Jun 23 2017

I mean I've been a Knicks fan since I was a kid, so this is just getting beyond belief.feedback

Jun 23 2017

To see Charles Oakley have handcuffs put on him was horrible. Like, I was sick to my stomach, as well as almost every other fan that was in there watching this as it took place. I bet you Jim Dolan -- this is just my opinion -- had to feel terrible about what that was.feedback

Jun 23 2017

I didn't even realize at the time that Charles had said bad things about him. I hadn't been up on that, so it wasn't awkward for me when he sort of poked me in my back, Charles, right before the incident happened. I was like, Hey Charles, how are you? This is my son, Kevin.' He was with me.feedback

Jun 22 2017

For the sake of the game I prefer it when the prizes are spread out amongst more players rather than have the same people winning all the titles.feedback

Jun 22 2017

This was the class system gone mad, the opposite of a meritocracy where hard work is rewarded and people are respected because they've actually done something, not because they've been born on the right side of the tracks.feedback

Jun 22 2017

Those people in the royal box should think about bowing to them.feedback

Jun 22 2017

Who were the performers here? The players, right? So why were they bowing to someone else when they were about to provide the entertainment.feedback

Jun 22 2017

Ah, no way, he hired Lendl. It's not going to work. Then I realised: 'Oh my God, it is going to work'. That was even worse.feedback

Jun 09 2017

How deep are you willing to dig? How bad are you willing to feel?feedback

Jun 01 2017

How long has this been going on in our game? It brings a little drama, sure but, from the standpoint of a player who has worked on his fitness all year to try to get an edge, I can see how that could be absolutely infuriating. That's not fair.feedback

May 26 2017

It's now just a question of when not if he'll win his first Grand Slam. It seems like he is getting closer.feedback

May 25 2017

Andre had a renaissance later in his career, into his 30s where he had success late in his career.feedback

May 25 2017

Andre analyzed the game really well from the times I spoke to him. He had that resurgence when he reached his 30s and added a couple of grand slam titles.feedback

May 25 2017

As far as being a brilliant tennis mind, and I know him well enough to know that he is, he loves the game and will leave no stone unturned as far as preparing for matches goes. With Novak sort of hitting that peak by winning the French last year he has talked about some issues off court, some motivational issues, so perhaps Andre can give him an insight into an avenue, a way where to be more easily fired up. First of all, Andre can bring a great respect. He's one of the greatest players ever. To be around someone like that will be fun for Novak.feedback

May 25 2017

But if he won the French it would not shock me at all.feedback

May 25 2017

I don't know if he has some nagging injuries but perhaps he lost some motivation when he reached world number one.feedback

May 15 2017

Milos is incredibly impressive, both as a player and a person, and I'm very pleased he's committed to playing the Laver Cup in September. We know Team Europe is incredibly strong on paper, and that Roger and Rafa have both had an unbelievable start to the year.feedback

May 15 2017

But we are putting together a bunch of players who I have no doubt will be the next generation of Grand Slam winners, and Milos is definitely up there as a contender.feedback

Aug 29 2016

When the US Open starts on Monday, he's got his people. I'm pulling for him and want him to do well.feedback
