The Pro Tennis Player Quotes of the Week:


November 22, 2017: “I’m still trying to think about what I just did. This is a great, unbelievable achievement for me, but I still have a lot to give. One of my main goals is to win a Grand Slam tournament. This has always been a dream of mine. Now, slowly, I think [I’m] getting there.
Grigor Dimitrov, who follows in the footsteps of Spain's Alex Corretja, who won the season-ending ATP Finals title on his debut in 1998. The 26-year-old Bulgarian beat David Goffin 7-5 4-6 6-3 before 18,000 mostly pro-Dimitrov spectators at London's O2 Arena to go undefeated.
November 22, 2017: “We need to think, take seriously all these rule changes if ever you’re going to do it, because once you do it, you don’t want to bounce back and forth with changing something, and then you don’t like it later on. I don’t see that much wrong with our Tour right now that it needs that much fixing, especially the shorter sets. I know it can be somewhat intriguing, but at the same time the longer sets allow you to stretch a lead, it’s more comfortable at times. … There are positives and negatives to it, but I don’t want to see anything change on the Tour that much, to be honest.
Roger Federer, opposing the rule reforms tested at the Next Gen ATP Finals.
November 22, 2017: “One year ago, for sure I never dreamed about being No.1 again at the end of the season. It was impossible for me to think about (being No.1) coming back from a tough period without playing, and with so many injuries in the last couple of years. It means a lot. After almost 10 years since the first time.
Rafael Nadal, at 31, became the oldest ATP world No.1 in history by beating Hyeon Chung 7-5 6-3 in the second round of the Paris Masters. The 16-time grand slam winner had not finished the year at the top since 2013, with Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray doing so after that.
November 22, 2017: “My whole life I didn’t even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love.
— What Alexis Ohanian, said during his vows to Serena Williams during their November wedding in New Orleans. Among the celebs, singers, and athletes attending were her sister Venus, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian West, Anna Wintour, and Caroline Wozniacki.
