January 2, 2013: "They can't believe that things will ever get better. You have to make children, even children who have gone through something as horrible as this, believe that things will get better. It starts with giving them love."
— Former world No. 2 tennis player, Andrea Jaeger, who has been heavily involved in charity work since retiring from pro tennis in 1987, telling Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News about the schoolchildren who survived the tragic massacre that killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14.

1980: "I gotta admit I used to love it, but I got into trouble a lot, got into fights and stuff. Nothing real bad, like with cops or anything. I can't do stuff like that anymore, 'cause I'm fifteen. Now I'm in high school."

——Andrea Jaeger, then the youngest player to crack the world top 10, saying she used to get into "a few brawls" with boys infuriated that "a girl could do something better than them" in sports. From Tennis magazine (1980).
