Anna Kournikova Quotes

1. At the same time, I've been in the public eye for so many years, there's been so much criticism, so much scrutiny, so much time in the spotlight, that I've developed a certain shield, a certain thick skin, if you will. But the most important thing is what you think of yourself and what you did, and what the people close to you think.

2. (what she said to Martina Hingis after losing a junior match to her) You won, but I'm prettier and more marketable than you.


3. Like any young person, I do what I want.





4. It's not really a shorter skirt, I just have longer legs...

5. Ten years from now it won't be enough that we, as ladies, only play tennis. The public wants to see more. We are the possession of the public. They make us stars and let us earn money. In about ten years every woman will play topless.


6. There's time for a boyfriend in my life. But he would have to be understanding. He would have to understand that often I will be travelling and playing.



7. I like to go to church. It's so nice and peaceful inside. You come out and you feel clean. Everything dirty is gone.


8. I know what I have achieved. I don't care or want to change anyone's perception or opinion of me. But do I sometimes wish it were different and that people gave me more credit? Yes. I've still got a heart. I'm not made of ice.

9. My manager wants me to dress like a nun and I want to dress like a teenager.


10. The courts are as a stage, people love to see attractive players.



11. When I play, I feel like I'm in a theatre, why should I look ugly then, because I'm a tennis-player?

12. Do I consider myself sexy? It all depends on the way I'm feeling. When I'm happy inside, that's when I feel most sexy.


13. I like myself so much better now. I've completely changed since quitting the tour. When I was playing, I was 21 years old and now I'm in my late twenties.



14. The world believes all blondes are stupid and brunettes are smarter. Well, I disagree.


15. I am beautiful, famous and gorgeous.





16. I just play for fun.

17. There are a lot of pretty girls. I am a tennis player first of all, that is why I am here, and if wasn't producing results no one would notice me.


18. I have a lot of boyfriends, I want you to write that. Every country I visit, I have a different boyfriend. And I kiss them all.

19. When I was 12, every little girl in Russia was trying to wear her hair like mine and playing tennis.


20. I think it's really important for me not to forget where I came from.




21. I'm like an expensive menu…you can look but you can't afford!

22. I think that tennis is a lady's sport, so we should look out there like ladies.


23. At this year's Open, I'll have five boyfriends.

24. (her thoughts after meeting Prince Andrew) He didn't set the world on fire.

25. It's that I have a good personality and am a good tennis player.

26. I don't know what better teenage life you could get than going around the world doing what you love to do.


27. I've just done a commercial in the U.S. in which I talk about stocks, shares and bonds. Everyone is amazed. They ask me: "You really know about that stuff or did you just learn it for the commercial?" I tell them I wouldn't do it unless I understood and had an interest.


28. I worked very hard and I earned all the attention I'm getting.

29. I'm like the most expensive, exotic item on a gourmet menu. People can wonder about the sensuous delights of the dish, but they can't afford such an expensive luxury.


30. A court is like a scene, people want to see attractive people.


31. People believe because I'm blonde, I must be stupid. But the blondes are the smart ones.

32. God gives all to those, who get up early.


33. I love Miami because it's so low-key. It's not a proper city like New York or Los Angeles, where if you go outside you have to be properly dressed and everything. In Miami, I could walk around naked. The good thing here is that there aren't too many photographers chasing you. If you're in LA, the photographers are everywhere.



34. It's true I always try to be as seductive as possible but I wouldn't be here if I couldn't play tennis.


35. Boyfriends have to understand me and my needs. They have to know what I want out of my life and about my strict regime. I go to bed at 10pm and not later. I separate my professional and private lives.






36. I'm not here to prove or to scream or to remind people. As long as I know that I achieved things in tennis, that's what matters to me. You cannot be good for everybody. There are always going to be some people who like you and some who don't. I don't even think about pleasing other people.


37. You don't think people would go on about my looks if I was No. 500 in the world instead of No.12, do you? Anyway, as I keep telling everyone, you can't blame me for looking like this on purpose.

38. Did it frustrate me that people always said I never won a singles title? No, not at all. It doesn't frustrate me now. And it didn't frustrate me then either. I have no life-changing regrets from tennis.


39. It would be strange if I hadn't grown up, if I hadn't changed. I like getting older. I wouldn't want to be 22 or 25 in my head again. I feel as though I'm getting smarter and wiser and learning a lot of things. Now that I'm older, I'm much more tolerant of myself, much kinder towards myself. Maybe it would be nice to have the skin of a 20 year-old, though.
