Kiki Bertens: RULES OF LIFE – Tennismood

Kiki Bertens’ Quotes

  • It is a really good record (she’s never lost a Fed Cup singles match: 8-0 record in singles and 14-1 overall), I couldn’t do better, and I hope I can keep this for the next few matches.
  • Every day was different so you have to make the best out of every day, and that was a lesson. In Nuremburg we had sun, we had rain, we had six degrees, we had 20 degrees. I’m just taking that lesson here with me. Every day is a new day.
  • I’m playing well, without getting tense (she describes her excitement about reaching the quarter final)
  • I can learn a lot from that (from her match with Serena Williams at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon; Jun., 2015) because I’m trying to play aggressive.
  • For me it’s always nice to have a whole team around me. We always have a lot of fun together in the week of the Fed Cup and I think that’s very important. Especially the last time when we played at home (May, 2014), it was really nice to have such a great crowd.
  • It’s nice to be so close with the other players and the staff of the team. Then you are with a whole group and on the tour it’s just me and my coach.
  • The last two years (2014-2016) were pretty hard for me. First I had my ankle surgery and afterwards I had some issues with my health. But since this season we worked really hard to be healthy again, to be fit again. I feel really good now.
  • Now I can start again at zero. Stress does so much with your body (after a long struggle with a series of diseases and injuries).
  • I kept missing. Just misfiring. Honestly, at one point I didn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I guess I was not the most positive mentally, but obviously I didn’t want to stop. (about her participation in the French Open quarterfinal; Jun., 2016)
  • The most important thing in doubles is having fun on court.
  • It was a hell really, but I’m really glad we did it. Like with my whole team we were working really hard every day. (about her preparation for French Open semi-final, 06/02/2016).
  • It would be something great. We (her team) will go for every match to win it.
  • I was in pain, much pain (after her match against Williams). It did not feel good. But I also enjoyed it. I gave it my best and am very proud.
  • I’m really happy that I went on court (after a calf problem). I played a really good match, played really aggressive tennis, so I can be proud of myself.
  • Just trying to go out there (to court) every day and just give everything and then just do my own thing. I think that’s the most important thing.
  • Every day was different so you have to make the best out of every day, and that was a lesson. In Nuremburg we had sun, we had rain, we had six degrees, we had 20 degrees. I’m just taking that lesson here with me. Every day is a new day.
  • My family came with me, so if you suddenly saw three madmen on tribunes, these were my mother, father and sister.
