I love the feel of hitting the ball hard, the pleasure of a rally. It is these things that make tennis the delightful game that it is.
Helen Wills Moody
I loved being a redhead! I always wanted to try it. I was obsessed with Lucille Ball growing up. I really wanted to try it but I always thought that doing it would ruin my hair.
Tracee Ellis Ross
A lot of the moves I make originate from futsal. It's played in a very small space, and the ball control is different in futsal. And to this day my ball control is pretty similar to a futsal player's control.
I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it.
Don't bunt. Aim out of the ball park. Aim for the company of immortals.
A ball player has to be kept hungry to become a big leaguer. That's why no boy from a rich family has ever made the big leagues.
I don't want to play golf. When I hit a ball, I want someone else to go chase it.
Whether it be personal or musical, I just think I'm a walking art piece, just a ball of creativity.
I'm a playmaker, and I'm going to score. At the end of the day, my job is to put the ball in the basket.
A lot of people tell me a lot of things about my conduct, my game, my future... but I try to stay away from their words of wisdom. I don't let it distract me. On the field, you will be facing the ball alone. If you fail, you will the only one to blame. So, you should be the one deciding for yourself.
I will fall in love with any golf course that you have to drive the ball straight. You understand what I'm saying? That's my advantage. My advantage wasn't putting. In fact, I wasn't even a great putter or a good putter.
I spend the entire 90 minutes looking for space on the pitch. I'm always between the opposition's two holding midfielders and thinking, 'The defence is here, so I get the ball and I go there to where the space is.'
If you run the ball, you control the clock. If you control the clock, you usually control the game.
When I was 22, I was having a ball!
I love my job. I come every day having a ball.
You can never, ever worry about making mistakes or things like that. I'm going to go out and play ball, and that's what I do.
I give everything I have every time I take the ball. With that, I also know that there will always be a risk of injury when playing this game that I love.
With 'Love & Basketball,' I played ball my whole life and did track at UCLA. So, I'm an athlete. And it was very important for me to get it right. I started with casting: As an athlete, there's nothing worse for me than watching a sports movie and the woman that they hire can't run or can't shoot. It sets women's sports back years.
I also played with Jimi Hendrix. Jimi would come down and sit in with Retaliation and we would have a ball. He offered me the gig with him at 20 pounds a week, which at that point, was like 60 bucks.
I didn't learn how to swing a golf club until late in my career. And even though I won all those tournaments, I still struggled with consistency, and I relied on my strengths, which were hitting the ball long and high, and I could chip and putt with the best of 'em.
I probably prefer Spanish football to the others. It's very technical, the way they play; they keep the ball well, and whenever Spurs have played against Spanish teams in the past, they've always made it difficult for us.
It just wasn't right the way they were behind by 25 points and then they're told to hold the ball.
Base Ball, to be played thoroughly, requires the possession of muscular strength, great agility, quickness of eye, readiness of hand, and many other faculties of mind and body that mark the man of nerve.
It was not long before I was struck with the idea that base ball was just the game for a national sport for Americans.
I ain't afraid to tell the world that it didn't take school stuff to help a fella play ball.
Shoeless Joe Jackson
I think cricket is there in Usain Bolt's blood. Since I got to watch from close quarters, it was amazing to see him run up to bowl. The perfect delivery stride is understandable because he is a world champion athlete. But the manner - he loaded at the crease and then bowled the ball - left me zapped. He looked like a natural cricketer.
