To be a tennis champion, you have to be inflexible. You have to be stubborn. You have to be arrogant. You have to be selfish and self-absorbed. Kind of tunnel vision almost.
If you're a champion, you have to have it in your heart.
If I win seven tournaments in a row, I get so confident I'm in a cloud. A loss gets me eager again.
I always looked ahead.
Relationships are give-and-take, and when you're a tennis player, you're certainly not giving. You have to be self-absorbed. It has to be about you.
