Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.
Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good.
I’m really exciting. I smile a lot, I win a lot, and I’m really sexy.
Everyone’s dream can come true if you just stick to it and work hard.
I’ve had to learn to fight all my life – got to learn to keep smiling. If you smile things will work out.
If you can keep playing tennis when somebody is shooting a gun down the street, that’s concentration.
