It helps me to believe that if I just had a little bit more I might have done it again. Andre Agassi after his five-set defeat to Pete Sampras.

It's always nice to have a close friend here to share in a victory or a defeat. Agassi on Barbra Streisand's Centre Court appearance.

Jim competes better than anyone out there. He gets himself out of some jams and plays well when he needs to. Todd Martin, Courier's latest victim.
