Wimbledon Quotes By Roy Goode

walk away from its treaty obligations by invoking the doctrine of State sovereignty. This was settled by a decision of the Permanent Court of Justice (PCIJ)10 over 80 years ago. SS Wimbledon Case (Britain v Germany) (1923) PCIJ (Series A) No 1, 25 The court declines to see in the conclusion of any treaty by which a State undertakes to perform or refrain from performing a particular act an abandonment of sovereignty. No doubt any convention creating an obligation of this kind places a restriction upon the exercise of the sovereign rights of the State, in the sense that it requires them to be exercised in a certain way. But the right of entering into international engagements is an attribute of State sovereignty. Implementation — Roy Goode

I was playing in the juniors at Wimbledon I forgot to turn my mobile phone off.

Wimbledon Quotes By Martin Clunes

Wimbledon Quotes By Roger Federer

This year I guess I decided in the bigger matches to take it more to my opponent instead of waiting a bit more for the mistakes. Yeah, this is I guess how you want to win Wimbledon, is by going after your shots, believing you can do it, and that's what I was able to do today. — Roger Federer

Wimbledon Quotes By Alan Coren

During the week, the shore-lark works in the City and flies home every night with its mate in Wimbledon, where it is a model husband and father.

Wimbledon Quotes By Andy Murray

People think I am unemotional because my voice is flat and a bit boring. It is unfortunate but it is just the way it is. I've tried to change it but it doesn't seem to make a difference. The truth is, I have lots of emotions inside. I cried after the semi-final at Wimbledon [2012] because I was proud to reach the final and I knew how much it meant to the country. I cried after the [losing] final [to Federer], too, for different reasons. I felt I had let people down. I think people warmed to that. They could see how much it hurt. — Andy Murray

Wimbledon Quotes By Sue Barker

How fitting [it would be if Roger Federer played the first match under the roof] ... he has become known in recent years as the King of Wimbledon ... and this is the day after of the death of the King of Pop. — Sue Barker

Wimbledon Quotes By Roger Federer

When I won in 2003, never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would win Wimbledon and have my kids seeing me lift the trophy, so this is pretty surreal. And yeah, I was almost shocked in the moment that it all came together so nicely. — Roger Federer

Wimbledon Quotes By Robert Graves

Nor had I any illusions about Algernon Charles Swinburne, who often used to stop my perambulator when he met it on Nurses' Walk, at the edge of Wimbledon Common, and pat me on the head and kiss me: he was an inveterate pram-stopper and patter and kisser. — Robert Graves

Wimbledon Quotes By Sania Mirza

When I used to say I wanted to play at Wimbledon, they used to laugh in my face and say, 'What are you talking about, you're from Hyderabad, and you're supposed to ... cook.'

Wimbledon is the most prestigious tournament we have, and being able to win it with all the tradition, that's always been a dream of mine. — Daniel Nestor

Wimbledon Quotes By Petra Kvitova

It means everything, definitely. I mean, it's Wimbledon. Tennis here is tennis history. Centre Court is always great to play on. I really feel like I'm at home. I was really up and down after my title here in 2011, but I still worked hard and believed in myself, and my team believed in me as well. — Petra Kvitova

Wimbledon Quotes By Gary Neville

When I was a child, the FA Cup was one of the crown jewels of the sporting year, along with the Grand National, Wimbledon and The Open. But with every announcement it seems to lose another piece of its identity. First it was sponsors added to the name, followed by the semi-finals at Wembley. — Gary Neville

Wimbledon Quotes By Peter Bodo

The public never appears to tire of endless courses of strawberries and cream, and the theory that you run the risk of boring people with endless photo montages of the Chelsea Pensioners in their dress reds, or close-ups of a Pimm's Cup sprouting all kinda of flora, has yet to be proven. People like Wimbledon in the same way they like blue jeans or even their own spouses: for the pleasure yielded by their reliable sameness. — Peter Bodo

Wimbledon Quotes By Marion Bartoli

I am not blonde, yes. Have I dreamt about having a model contract? No. But have I dreamed about winning Wimbledon? Absolutely. — Marion Bartoli

Wimbledon Quotes By Andy Murray

There's two people I would say to try to go and watch who are probably the future of tennis. One girl called Taylor Townsend, she got a wildcard from the event into Wimbledon; she's an American girl.

Wimbledon Quotes By Fiona Hodgkin

Were you serious when you said I might win someday at Wimbledon?"
Claire answered, "There's so much that's pure luck, good or bad. The weather can be terrible. We always say we should re-schedule Wimbledon and hold it in the summer!"
I frowned. "Wimbledon is in the summer."
Claire sighed. "It's a joke, Fiona."
"Oh. — Fiona Hodgkin

Wimbledon Quotes By Jimmy Connors

Wimbledon Quotes By Evonne Goolagong Cawley

It's something I've always wanted - to be known as an Australian. When I was younger I was always referred to as an Aboriginal tennis player. Now I think the award means that I have been recognised as an entertainer and that makes me happy ... It's given me probably as big a kick as winning Wimbledon. — Evonne Goolagong Cawley

Wimbledon Quotes By John McEnroe

If you want to be a tennis player, then mould yourself on Roger Federer. I won three Wimbledon titles and I wish I could play like him. — John McEnroe

Wimbledon Quotes By Goran Ivanisevic

Wimbledon Quotes By Pat Cash

I had always dreamed of winning Wimbledon and when it happened it was very stressful. It was more of a relief! — Pat Cash

Wimbledon Quotes By Peter Chapman

I don't get what's happening to Jose Mourinho of late. He's lapsing into the kind of Portuguese moroseness you get from staring at the Atlantic horizon and imagining you're the last place in the world, while listening to endless renditions of the fado. His latest line about 'everyone hates us and we don't care' sounds like vintage Joe Kinnear in the great days of the Wimbledon Crazy Gang. — Peter Chapman

Wimbledon Quotes By Fred Perry

I was always a believer in stamping on my opponent if I got him down, at Wimbledon or anywhere else. I never wanted to give him the chance to get up. — Fred Perry

Wimbledon Quotes By Helen Wills Moody

The 1927 Wimbledon finals were almost put off because of the rain, which threatened every moment. — Helen Wills Moody

Wimbledon Quotes By Goran Ivanisevic

I think I owe it to myself and my fans in Britain to play one more Wimbledon. — Goran Ivanisevic

Wimbledon Quotes By Jimmy Connors

I think my greatest victory was every time I walked out there, I gave it everything I had. I left everything out there. That's what I'm most proud of. I can't go win Wimbledon anymore, so if what I've done in the past is not good enough, let it go. Because I'm certainly not sitting around thinking about it. — Jimmy Connors

Wimbledon Quotes By Lin-Manuel Miranda

The only other thing that's like video games for me is watching tennis on TV. I can have it on, and there's a rhythmic quality to it - I can be watching Wimbledon or the U.S. Open and still be working. — Lin-Manuel Miranda

Wimbledon Quotes By Rafael Nadal

The first point is always important, more so in a Wimbledon final — Rafael Nadal

Wimbledon Quotes By Timothy Gallwey

Both Arthur Ashe and Billie Jean King used these phrases ("playing out of one's mind," or "over one's head") to describe their performances while winning tghe finals at Wimbledon in 1975 ... The player loses himself in the action, continually breaki g the false limits placed on is potential. Awareness becomes acutely heightened, while analysis, anxiety and self-conscious thought are compoletly forgotten. Enjoyment is at a peak - pure and unspoiled. — Timothy Gallwey

Wimbledon Quotes By Marin Cilic

The most special Slam is Wimbledon, of course. But where I feel the best is Melbourne. And you're happy that you're playing. When you get to the middle of the season, everything is week after week, and it's all routine. But when it's Melbourne in January, you are fresh and you want to play. It's nice. — Marin Cilic

Wimbledon Quotes By John Newcombe

At Wimbledon, the ladies are simply the candles on the cake. — John Newcombe

Wimbledon Quotes By Andy Murray

I understand how much everyone wanted to see a British winner at Wimbledon and I hope everyone enjoyed it. I worked so hard in that last game. It's the hardest few points I've had to play in my life. I don't know how I came through the final three points ... that last game ... my head was kind of everywhere. That last game will be the toughest game I'll play in my career, ever. — Andy Murray

Wimbledon Quotes By Patrick Rafter

I don't know if Wimbledon's seen anything like it. I don't know if they will again. But it was just - it was electric. The Aussie crowd, I'm really proud of them, the way they conducted themselves. You know they're great losers, as well. — Patrick Rafter

Wimbledon Quotes By Justine Henin

It is another Justine Henin who will try and go out there and achieve her dream of finally winning Wimbledon, — Justine Henin

Wimbledon Quotes By Marat Safin

Wimbledon is not the tournament I love. I don't like how they treat the players. There are small things that don't cost them anything and they make such a big deal out of it. If they treat us this way, well, we have to treat them the same. We want to be respected, the way we respect Wimbledon, even if it is not the best Grand Slam on earth. — Marat Safin

Wimbledon Quotes By Claire Foy

I've worked in supermarkets, put tags in baseball caps and provided security during Wimbledon, but I never thought acting would be something I'd be any good at, or make a living from. — Claire Foy

Wimbledon Quotes By Evonne Goolagong Cawley

Wimbledon Quotes By Argus Hamilton

Wimbledon attracted Bill Clinton to the gallery at Centre Court Tuesday at the All England Club. NBC cameras showed his head turning back and forth with each volley. Even at a tennis match, it looks like he's denying everything. — Argus Hamilton

Wimbledon Quotes By Diana Nyad

You don't simply tell someone to get out there and win the tennis match. You say 'move your feet' or 'watch the fuzz on the ball' to really get into the Zen of it. You pull all that together, and then you just might hold up the Wimbledon Plate ... It's not about winning first place but bringing every element of effort to whatever you do. — Diana Nyad

Wimbledon Quotes By Andy Roddick

I got to play in a crowd, play in Wimbledon finals, be the guy on a Davis Cup team for a while. Those are opportunities not a lot of people get. — Andy Roddick

Wimbledon Quotes By Mahesh Bhupathi

Wimbledon 2014 will be my last slam. To be honest, I am already starting to miss professional tennis, having played at the highest level for two decades. It is what has given me my identity, and I will miss every bit of the action. The thought that I will not be playing anymore is daunting. — Mahesh Bhupathi

Wimbledon Quotes By Chris Evert

The great high of winning Wimbledon lasts for about a week. You go down in the record book, but you don't have anything tangible to hold on to. But having a baby
there isn't any comparison. — Chris Evert

Wimbledon Quotes By Andy Murray

Everybody always talks about the pressure of playing at Wimbledon, how tough it is, but the people watching make it so much easier to play. — Andy Murray

Wimbledon Quotes By John McEnroe

I didn't serve and volley until I got to Wimbledon in '77. — John McEnroe

Wimbledon Quotes By Althea Gibson

From 143rd Street in Harlem to the center court at Wimbledon is about as far as one can travel. — Althea Gibson

Wimbledon Quotes By Goran Ivanisevic

Wimbledon Quotes By Serena Williams

Will I have to explain to my daughter that her brother is gonna make more money doing the exact same job because he's a man? If they both played sports since they were three years old, they both worked just as hard, but because he's a boy, they're gonna give him more money? Like, how am I gonna explain that to her? In tennis we've had great pioneers that paved the way - including Venus [Williams], who fought so hard for Wimbledon to pay women the same prize money they pay men, and Billie Jean King, who is one of the main reasons Title IX exists. — Serena Williams

Wimbledon Quotes By Mahesh Bhupathi

I am glad that Wimbledon is my last slam. I love the atmosphere and courts of SW19, and it is an addiction, which I will find tough to give up. — Mahesh Bhupathi

Wimbledon Quotes By Venus Williams

There is nothing like playing at Wimbledon; you can feel the footprints of the legends of the game-men and women-that have graced those courts. — Venus Williams

Wimbledon Quotes By Roger Federer

I am now the Wimbledon champion, and I think that gives me even more confidence coming to the Olympics. And maybe in some ways, it maybe takes some pressure off the Olympics, because I already did win at Wimbledon this year. — Roger Federer
