I'm going with the flow. I feel when the time is right to stop, it will be flashing in neon lights for me, like this is it. It could be this year, it could be next year, I have no idea. Anyone in their profession seems to think it's fairly clear when it's the right time. I haven't had that moment of clarity.— Lindsay Davenport
The most massive Lindsay Davenport quotes that are new and everybody is talking about
I'm proud of myself. I'm a relieved, happy girl.
I don't think I should be underestimated.
Some times you lose more than you win.
It's about handling losses and trying to turn them into positives. You get out into the big leagues and there's a period of adjustment to be made. You've got to handle it.
I think I'm pretty down to earth.
I come from a family of working women, my mum went to work two weeks after I was born - my parents had no money, there was no choice.
I'm not that interesting!
I could never have gotten back into my career without the undying support of my husband, who works full time at a stressful job! We decided that we were going to do this as total partners and it is a 50/50 deal with us.
Nobody wants to go through divorce, especially when there's young children involved.
While I still have more good days than bad days, I'm going to keep playing.
While I was always successful... I never thought I'd be one in the world.
No. At the States we get no matches that are played in Europe on TV.
[On a strained relationship between a tennis champion and her mother:] There comes a time when it's probably not cool for your mom to be your best friend.
You work your whole life to try to be the best you can, even if it's for only one day or one week.
You always see people coming back to the sport, and I've always thought, 'Gosh, when you're done playing, wouldn't you just want to stay at home?'
I think when you start to do well and get your confidence back, everything becomes more fun. When you're playing with not your full capacity of confidence, I think things get a little tough. I knew I could be doing better than what I was doing. Even though I was ranked 5 or 4 or whatever it was, I wanted to get back to the level I thought I could play at.
Tennis is more commercial these days.
I wasn't a perfect thing at 17. I didn't have confidence. I was hunched over and real embarrassed, and I didn't want to be in the limelight. But it changed over time.
I did everything I could except win. I feel fine. I just played bad at a big time.
I TiVo 'CSI,' 'CSI: Miami,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Young and The Restless' - my husband hates that one - and that's pretty much it.
I never had tons of friends on tour. I was quiet and went about my business.
I don't enjoy being in Europe for weeks on end, so I just skip it.
If you go to Australia, the Australian Open is on all day long on network TV.
There's no way CBS, NBC and ABC would do that. They only show the finals. That's always been the case. They don't want to give the time to the biggest tournament we have in the United States. Any other country, it's everywhere -- front page of the main paper, front page of the sports section. We haven't had that here.
I was never a prodigy.
The return is one of the hardest shots to make when you come back from injury.
I always tried to hide the fact that I was an athlete. I just wanted to be normal.
I donate lots to charity. I don't necessarily tell everybody the number or what I do.
I couldn't imagine being from a country where all the pressure is on a particular player.
I did not grow up with people, you know, pounding in my head, 'This is what you've got to do, this is what you're going to do.'
With my child, I hardly watch TV now.
We get criticized for showing no personality, then we get penalized when we do.
I've played too many tennis hours.
In the history of women's tennis the great players have come back from long absences with no problems.
