September 5, 2004: "Both Williams sisters, their forehands break down. And their parents--Oracene and Richard--are not real tennis players, but have been their coaches, basically their only coaches, for the last five or six years…. Not every person, or one person, knows everything about the game, and teaches every stroke perfectly. Why not go to a specialist if you have a little problem? Especially, to me, when Venus and Serena are being coached by parents that didn't play the game."
-- Tracy Austin, two-time U.S. Open champion and now an analyst for USA Network, with a constructive suggestion for Serena and Venus Williams.

"Pressure? Do you realize how many times I had my picture on the cover of Sports Illustrated at the age of twelve?"

-- Tracy Austin
