9. Goran the Ghost
“They’ve lost my page. Somebody ripped it out! But I’m the main sponsor for the tour! I’m the guy who paid the most fines, so they should give me respect. There should be a page saying ‘This is the guy who paid the most fines.’ I don’t exist now. I’m a ghost, so I can do whatever I want.”
Goran Ivanisevic was a real character. We could write a Top 20 Funniest Tennis Quotes piece with just his quotes. But we’ve selected one of his best.
In 2004, a 32-year old Ivanisevic decides to come back into the ATP tour although most people expected him to retire the previous year. The ATP themselves didn’t expect him to play that year and they duly omitted him from the Players Guide book of stats and facts.
Ivanisevic retorted in the best way possible – Sarcasm.
