Here are the top ten greatest quotes:
I’ll let the racket do the talking.
I was always taught that you needed to be intense and never lose your focus.
We all choke. Winners know how to handle choking better than losers.
I think it’s the mark of a great player to be confident in tough situations.
I’m sure a lot of players say it, but wining is almost so you don’t lose. The thrill of winning is not as great as the pain of losing.
Be happy. If you’re successful but unhappy, that’s emptiness.
Things slow down, the ball seems a lot bigger and you feel like you have more time. Everything computes- you have options, but you always take the right one.
My greatest strength is that I have no weaknesses.
The important thing is to learn a lesson every time you lose.
The older I get, the better I used to be.
Thank you John McEnroe!
