I have to use other things to help my tennis, like my brain. But I believe that, even when your muscles are not so fast, with the brain and with concentration you can compensate.
I like to draw, produce paintings, do something with my fingers - but I am very normal, down-to-earth person.
I can't permit myself to do things halfway; I never was like that.
It can be boring to see the same players winning every time.
To cry on court during a Wimbledon final, you must feel so lonely.
Anna Kournikova will always be better paid than Lindsay Davenport. The first left the circuit without having won a single title while the second was world number one.
I will have won Wimbledon this year in 2013, and I will stop with that. It was magnificent. You will certainly see me at tournaments again, but not playing.
There is so many things to do in life rather than playing tennis, so I'm sure I will find something. I just need a bit of time to kind of settle down.
I do not look at myself every morning and think: 'Oh, my gosh, I am so perfect, so beautiful, so talented.' No, I like to make fun of myself.
I think if people ask, 'How is Marion Bartoli?', they will always respond, 'She's a nice person.' That's what I'm most proud of.
My family are not sporty - they are all doctors or lawyers.
Maybe something is wrong with me, but I just think I'm normal. I'm not super-skinny but I'm not super-fat. But I don't really care about what other people say.
The first time at age 5 and a half, when I took a racket in my hands and my father fed me some balls, I made 50 backhands in a row - didn't miss a single one.
