Couple of tennis related quotes:

"Hate is a very strong word - I just despise her to the maximum level
just below hate."

Former player and senior ATP official Justin Gimelstob turns on the
charm while talking about Anna Kournikova in a radio interview.

"I was in the laundry and I realised I was standing right next to
Rafael Nadal. I didn't bother him but he was shoving all his colours
and whites in together. I really wanted to say, 'Dude, you're going to
have a nightmare with that'. But what can you do?"

British cyclist Jamie Staff, who won gold in the team sprint, revealed
Nadal might have to buy new whites for Wimbledon next year.

I know I should remember but I don't - who said that about whom?

I guess my post was too unclear, but it was there:

Oh, duh. For some reason I thought it was like those trivia quizzes...

Pity. I could have guessed Patty Schnyder. :)

Or, in reverse chronological order, Chakvetadze, Hingis, Pierce, Capriati . . . ?

(Gimelstob needs put to sleep.)

It just means that he put all his white laundry and all his coloured
laundry in the machine at the same time.
