Losing hurts me. I was determined to be the best.
If you're a champion, you have to have it in your heart.
When I was younger, I was a robot. Wind her up and she plays tennis.
I'm not an overly ambitious person; I don't feel like I have to excel.
Every time, all the time, I'm a perfectionist. I feel I should never lose.
Ninety percent of my game is mental. It's my concentration that has gotten me this far.
If I win seven tournaments in a row, I get so confident I'm in a cloud. A loss gets me eager again.
I was very, very shy as a younger girl, just petrified of people. Tennis helped give me an identity and made me feel like somebody.
Find something that you're really interested in doing in your life. Pursue it, set goals, and commit yourself to excellence. Do the best you can.
