Quotes: 1. I want my tennis to speak for everything.
2. I'm always on the go. I love doing things until I hit rock bottom. Then I need my 12 hours of sleep, and I'm on the go again. 3. If you're able to help some people and make them smile and make them realize that life is good.
4. I don't follow other players or the tournaments they play. I have my own schedule and do my own thing. I never really think, 'Oh, I want to be or play like so-and-so.' I just like being myself. 5. I always listened to my own voice, and it always told me that for some reason I'm meant to be better. I'm meant to succeed again. And I did. 6. Music is a part of my life all the time - on the plane, before matches, driving out to the court. 7. I'm an athlete. I go out there and fight my heart out.Video
