The great champions were always vicious competitors. You never lose respect for a man who is a vicious competitor, and you never hate a man you respect. I don't like Rod Laver because he's such a vicious competitor, but I don't dislike him.
Pancho Gonzales
I'm just glad Open tennis is here. It's great for the game. That's more important.
