  • If you think I’m unprofessional, but I guess I’m working, I’m learning. I think I’m failing, for sure, a lot, but I try to stand up.
  • It’s easy to punish me because I not win anything, you know. Such an easy thing. I do different stuff. I’m happy. I’m always with a smile.
  • I’m not playing well. I’m trying to win not playing well. Winning will help me to express myself. It comes from inside of me. I didn’t start the year well physically, mentally, and game-wise. I’ve had it up to here a bit with everyone’s reactions when I say I’m lacking the spark and that I’ll quit.
  • I need to clear my head. I also need to start physical training too. I’m fine, but I think I can be even stronger. I’m looking for confidence and consistency. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to play five or six tournaments in a row without getting injured. If I manage to play well and be consistent for five weeks, I think I’ll be able to last the two weeks of a Grand Slam.
  • The best match I ever played was in 2004 at Paris Bercy (the Masters Series event) against Lleyton Hewitt. I lost 6-3, 7-6 but for me it was the best match I ever played.
  • Playing against someone like Roger Federer is not easy. I had my chance today, but I guess I made a lot of errors. But I have no complaints.
  • Roger is such a great player and I can’t say how excited I am to be playing the final against him. Hopefully, I’ll be able to maintain my focus and not get overawed by the occasion.
  • I feel good. I had a strong first round and obviously I know I was a little bit worried, [in] my back a little bit. Today I just play tough and cruised. I’m satisfied. I just feel good and hopefully going to keep going.
  • I’d like to be like Yannick Noah (a former professional tennis player from France). He’s a good example – an idol. It’s a dream to be in the world top 10.
  • I don’t think I’m easy, but I think I’m quite a good worker.
  • People say I slide too much. To me, it’s a gift, it’s natural. It may be different, but I’m me. I’m more of an artist. I create new styles because I don’t want to lose.
  • If at the end I had the mic, I would say to the audience,’Stop saying that I’m unprofessional’,Gael Monfils quotes!
  • Quite honestly, I don’t have a place in the Davis Cup, there’s an impression that I can play well on grass, but it’s nothing but an impression.
  • I put good work with my team. What I try to do is keeping working with them, and then the result I see later.
  • I more look at myself, what I can achieve. When I’m in my top and with consistency I can beat quite a lot of players in the top. So the only thing is honestly you like to win with the best in the draw, no matter what.
  • I don’t always talk about how I do it, but I find a way to take care of my body, you know, take care of everything. So far it’s good.
  • I keep like simple thing in my head, so obviously is working. Then it’s luck. To be honest, look at set point. I hit one of the worst drop shots I ever hit and he hit a frame It’s pure luck, you know, to haven’t drop a set. So you need to have it sometime, and I hope I will have more.
  • I played a lot of sport when I was young and still play other sport now. Maybe I have different coordination from others, so that’s why sometimes it looks a little bit different.
  • Actually when I jump or when I dive or whatever, for me it’s natural. Right after if someone shows me, I say: “S***, it was good”.
  • I have many favorite songs. I love Lil Wayne, Kanye West and I love some French artists. My best movie is Remember the Titans.
  • I create music; I create painting; I create whatever I want to create. I create clothes. I create, I don’t know, dance move. I create anything.
  • End of training day #recovery #sunset #beautiful #fisherisland #oklm #lamonf15

  • I made friends very quickly. I discovered a country where I feel good. I’ve got my own favourite places, shops and restaurants and I’m proud to say that I love Switzerland. The people are very relaxed and open.
  • Before I became famous, it was different – much more spontaneous. These days I’m asked so many questions: why me and not another girl? How do I know you’re sincere? You travel a lot, how can I be sure you’ll be faithful? It’s a real headache.
  • I need someone who understands and accepts my lifestyle. I know it’s not easy. Because I’m always in the foreground, it’s difficult for the other person.
