"A little wine tones up the system just right. One cannot always be serious. There must be some sparkle too"
"A great many persons have thought that my confidence reflected egotism in its worst form"
"Under these absurd and antiquated amateur rulings, only a wealthy person can compete"
"In the twelve years I have been champion I have earned literally millions of francs for tennis and have paid thousands of francs in entrance fees to be allowed to do so"
