Mondays are no longer Mundane!
Hi and welcome to Eloquence- The public Speaking Club’s edition for the sports season
Here is when the Fuchchas/is are left with no choice but to whine as the rest of the world is very much connected to the happenings of the US Open and the Premier league. While many are busy mourning the early exits of the likes of Roger Federer and Andy Murray, we bring to you a few hilarious/witty comments of some Tennis players at the peak of their distress.
1. Having lost 16 times in a row to Jimmy Connors, Vitas Gerulaitis finally triumphed and offered his reason as to why he didn't lose:
"Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row."
2. Goran Ivanišević voiced his displeasure on being left of the ATP player's guide:
"They’ve lost my page. Somebody ripped it out. But I’m the main sponsor for the tour! I’m the guy who paid the most fines, so they should give me respect. There should be a page saying 'This is the guy who paid the most fines.'"
3. Pat Cash's train of thought disconnecting:
"Lleyton Hewitt. His two greatest strengths are his legs, his speed, his agility and his competitiveness."
4. Then-Chilean No.1 Nicolas Massu giving us a reason why he should care about his numbers:
"I'd rather be No. 2 in Chile and No. 1 in the world. I don't care about numbers right now."
5. Mel Purcell outlining how he would dethrone Ivan Lendl:
"Sure, on a given day I could beat him. But it would have to be a day he had food poisoning."
6. Goran Ivanišević explaining his inconsistency. This was on show during the 2000 Samsung Open where he ran out rackets because he smashed them all.
"The trouble with me is that every match I play against five opponents: umpire, crowd, ball boys, court, and myself."
Wish you an eventful week, Remember to just chill and have fun, most importantly during the worst of times.:-)
