Perhaps one of the top tennis players with the best sense of humor is Andy Roddick. He has been quoted many times for saying something funny and sometimes off-color things.
Roddick is notoriously known for saying comical/rude things to umpires after a bad call while he is playing a match.
"You're on live TV, you know. You look like a real moron right now."
-Andy Roddick to a chair umpire
Or one of my favorites:
"You're an idiot! Stay in school kids, or you'll end up being an umpire."
Roddick was once interviewed on his amazingly fast serve:
Interviewer: “You have a very fast serve.”
Roddick: “It killed a small dog.”
A few seconds pass by and Andy Roddick notices that she is not laughing.
Roddick: “I’m joking, I am joking...The dog was huge.”
There’s nothing quite like Roddick at an interview or press conference. Here are some other funny quotes from the top tennis players.
"I would so like to be Lenny Kravitz."
This one from Novak Djokovic is pretty funny, all you have to do is picture it to understand what he’s talking about:
“Everybody makes fun of me because of that, but yesterday I was a bit embarrassed. I was bouncing the ball, and then I had a bad bounce, and the ball went away, and everybody smiled.”
