It's a pity that the tennis is really going down the drain. Every year it's getting worse and worse and worse. There has to be a radical change, and I hope it will be really soon.
I've had good times and bad times. That's me. That's how I am.
I give up on spending time on these courts; I give up on practicing before the tournament I hate. I hate this.
You cannot take all the chances you get.
If I was the type of person who had tennis, tennis, tennis all the time and I went to bed and ended up dreaming about tennis, I would go nuts.
One of the most important things, actually, when you're playing on grass, is to move.
I don't care about losses anymore.
I've had a lot of luck. If I didn't I'd be washing bottles in Russia.
I'm not a materialistic person.
You're playing or you're not playing. If you're playing, so just shut up and play.
It is very hard for me to switch from clay to grass.
I've lived my life the way I wanted to, whether scaling the mountains, partying long into the night or having fun playing soccer.

I could pose in fashion commercials as a high society star but politics is a new way of life.
I definitely want to get out of tennis and try something completely different.
I didn't change the world.
I think it's difficult to be No. 1. 'There's too much attention, too much expectation from other people.
I'm not fighting with myself.
I've realized I can't waste any moment being unhappy.
