Why are people afraid of getting older? You feel wiser. You feel more mature. You feel like you know yourself better. You would trade that for softer skin? Not me!
I think it's really important for me not to forget where I came from.
It's that I have a good personality and am a good tennis player.
I'm like a menu at an expensive restaurant; you can look at me, but you can't afford me.
I have a lot of boyfriends, I want you to write that. Every country I visit, I have a different boyfriend. And I kiss them all.
I grew up a little girl in the Soviet Union playing at a small sports club. Tennis gave me my life.
Do I consider myself sexy? It all depends on the way I'm feeling. When I'm happy inside, that's when I feel most sexy.
I'm like an expensive menu... you can look but you can't afford!
There are a lot of pretty girls. I am a tennis player first of all, that is why I am here, and if wasn't producing results no one would notice me.
A court is like a scene, people want to see attractive people.
The world believes all blondes are stupid and brunettes are smarter. Well, I disagree.
God gives all to those, who get up early.
I believe in commitment. I believe in being open and trusting each other and respecting each other completely.
My manager wants me to dress like a nun and I want to dress like a teenager.
The courts are as a stage, people love to see attractive players.
I am beautiful, famous and gorgeous.
At this year's Open, I'll have five boyfriends.
I think that tennis is a lady's sport, so we should look out there like ladies.
I don't know what better teenage life you could get than going around the world doing what you love to do.
You don't think people would go on about my looks if I was No. 500 in the world instead of No.12, do you? Anyway, as I keep telling everyone, you can't blame me for looking like this on purpose.
I've just done a commercial in the U.S. in which I talk about stocks, shares and bonds. Everyone is amazed. They ask me: 'You really know about that stuff or did you just learn it for the commercial?' I tell them I wouldn't do it unless I understood and had an interest.
Boyfriends have to understand me and my needs. They have to know what I want out of my life and about my strict regime. I go to bed at 10pm and not later. I separate my professional and private lives.
Like any young person, I do what I want.
It's true I always try to be as seductive as possible but I wouldn't be here if I couldn't play tennis.
