My favorite all-tinme tennis quote was made by Vitas Gueralitis .....

"And let that be a lesson to you all. Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row." -- post-match conference after beating Jimmy Connors after Connors had beaten him 16 times in a row.




I've heard that quote a few times, thats just a classic and one I love!  :)

Hail, Jster has posted that quote on this board at least like 5 times or something!  But you know what, that quote will never get old!   :rofl_2:

Actually for years I've used Borg in place of Connors so I learned something by looking it up. 
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

"I don't really care"

Sums him up pretty well that!!!!!!!!!!!!

After all "It's all about ME"...........

Why didn't he just say: "I hope he goes on and wins it"..............

I think I summed that up in....."It's all about me"................... :rofl_2:

Class act or a very sore loser??????????

When I  saw Fed's interview I was thinking of you and others and knew you would rip him for it!   ..-)     As usual, pulled out of context from you to prove something that isn't there!   ..-)

"Except for your voice, you're a great singer."

How about this one Alison:

"Challenge... CHALLENGE I said!!!

~ :king: Fed

From one of my favorite movies The Jerk:

"I'll have money to send you guys as I may have more work. My friend Patty promised me a blow job."

Navin: Can I ask you a personal question?

Bernadette: What is it?

-You do have a boyfriend don't you?

-Kind of.

-I know this is our first date, but do you think the next time you make love to your boyfriend, you could think of me?

-Well, I haven't made love with him yet.

-That's too bad. Well, do you think it's possible that someday you can make love to me and think of him?

-Who knows? Maybe you and he can make love and think of me.

-I'd just be happy to be in there somewhere.


There's just something so naive and hilarious about that movie that I love it so much. :rofl_2:

Here's another good 'un.

Lendl to Brad Gilbert:
Gilbert, 0-15 lifetime v Lendl, was an easy volley from going up 5-1 in the 3rd set of their 16th and final meeting. After chunking the volley, Gilbert goes on to finish his career a perfect 0-16. After the match, while Gilbert is icing his foot, Lendl sits next to him and says:

I could be on my deathbed with a 110-degree temperature and still beat you.[/b]Man, I miss these guys!!!!!!!!!!


I loved that from Lendl (he was my favorite when he played)!
