11. Vitas Gerulaitis’ lesson to us all

 “And let that be a lesson to you all. Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row.”

Lithuanian-American Vitas Gerulaitis had once lost a whopping 16 times in a row against the legendary Jimmy Connors. But at the 1980 Masters, Gerulaitis finally managed to beat Connors in his 17th attempt. In the post-match press conference, Gerulaitis said the above quote, which will probably be remembered more than his tennis.

Yes Vitas. Lesson learned.
