Zitat des Tages von Steffi Graf:
I still take it seriously, but once I go out there I think I've got more relaxed and I think it shows.
I had a lot of different thoughts and ideas and always to transform, but I'm trying certain things that I feel my heart is really going for and that was one of the things that I initiated a few months ago.
It shifted attention away from that and I've never been someone who liked the attention from the media anyway.
It's so difficult to find time besides the tennis.
I don't wake up every day and think about which tournaments I won and which titles I hold. It's something I don't care about.
I never look back, I look forward.
I appreciate very much being injury-free.
I think it takes people to get to know you and the recognition comes over time.
I knew that maybe I couldn't be playing again, but I just wanted to get in physical shape.
I've thrown away lots of my old diaries - you never know who might get their hands on them. But I have kept a few notes on the good old days.
Grass is a surface I have always loved, Wimbledon is a tournament I have always loved.
When you lose a couple of times, it makes you realize how difficult it is to win.
The tennis wasn't really very much on my mind, so it wasn't like I was thinking about it all the time.
You can have a certain arrogance, and I think that's fine, but what you should never lose is the respect for the others.
I suppose it's amazing how quick life goes by when you have children.
You cannot compare your athletic achievement to the importance of children and giving them a safe environment in which to grow up and enjoy life.
