“Tennis players are generous. Smart? Mmm, not so sure.” Jim Courier while chair-umpiring  ‘rally for relief’. Note: The very same Jim Courier who jumped in to Melbourne’s (rather brown) Yarra River after each of his two Australian Open triumphs.
“Kim, you’ve been married a while. You should know you need to tell us guys where to go…” That man Courier again, reminding Kim Clijsters of the power balance after she and Rafael Nadal chase the same ball during Sunday’s ‘rally for relief.’
“Let me take on the old man.” Lleyton Hewitt, before facing off with his 38-year-old Davis Cup captain Pat Rafter.
“I can see much more than you think.” Novak Djokovic to Caroline Wozniacki while the Dane poses for the camera.
“I don’t know how you guys ever miss a call from here.” Andy Roddick, after taking the baseline judge’s place and donning a super-stylish sun hat and shades.
