Tennis Frontier Favorite Quotes
lets have some fun with this. list your most favorite quotes.

they can be inspirational and they can be pearls of wisdom.

I like them a lot. I am a bit of a master of quotes as I recite them when the opportunity presents itself.


you have the floor. who will fire up the first or the first set of quotes?


also do you know of any tennis related quotes?


enjoy.
