3
Marion Bartoli
To cry on court during a Wimbledon final, you must feel so lonely.
4
Mahesh Bhupathi
Wimbledon 2014 will be my last slam. To be honest, I am already starting to miss professional tennis, having played at the highest level for two decades. It is what has given me my identity, and I will miss every bit of the action. The thought that I will not be playing anymore is daunting.
5
Mahesh Bhupathi
I am glad that Wimbledon is my last slam. I love the atmosphere and courts of SW19, and it is an addiction, which I will find tough to give up.

Pat Cash
I had always dreamed of winning Wimbledon and when it happened it was very stressful. It was more of a relief!
7
Marin Cilic
The most special Slam is Wimbledon, of course. But where I feel the best is Melbourne. And you're happy that you're playing. When you get to the middle of the season, everything is week after week, and it's all routine. But when it's Melbourne in January, you are fresh and you want to play. It's nice.

Kim Clijsters
I would love to do well one last time in Melbourne and my dream would be to win Wimbledon and play in the London Olympics.

Jimmy Connors
I think my greatest victory was every time I walked out there, I gave it everything I had. I left everything out there. That's what I'm most proud of. I can't go win Wimbledon anymore, so if what I've done in the past is not good enough, let it go. Because I'm certainly not sitting around thinking about it.
10
Jimmy Connors
New Yorkers love it when you spill your guts out there. Spill your guts at Wimbledon and they make you stop and clean it up.
