Words matter. These are the best Patrick Mouratoglou Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
It’s time to realise that tradition is fantastic but if because of tradition and only tradition you lose everyone it’s less fantastic so you have to keep some tradition to this sport of course but you also have to live in your century.
My goal is to help make tennis transition to what’s coming next and to be able to continue to grow rather than falling down, because no new fans come to our sport.
The way we score is complicated. The rules are strict. The goal on the court is to show nothing, and then when you show something you are a bad person. Getting angry is not allowed. The show that you see on TV is not exciting, like the NFL or NBA, because you are seeing robots.
So I don’t see any stress from players or coaches with coaching during the matches, to be honest.
The whole idea is to propose an immersive experience. When you watch tennis, you watch from the outside, you’re far from the court, the camera is far away and the whole story is about two persons hitting a tennis ball and trying to win.
But I think there is a space for a second league, which is UTS, that is more modern, and is targeting a difference audience.
A very good leader is someone who has a great team, it’s all about the team. You only have 12 hours or 14 hours a day, if the people that are with you are doing a great job, you can have a great business. If not, it’s not going to work.
I think coaches sometimes think it’s always their way.
The only thing I want is tennis to be the biggest sport on the planet.
The reason why people watch sport is to feel something. They want to feel emotions. So if the players don’t give emotions, it’s more difficult to get into it.
I think tennis needs to be reinvented. I think there is a space for two different tours. This exists in many other sports.
Tennis is failing to renew its fanbase. And that’s very worrying, because the future doesn’t look bright.
Winning a Grand Slam was something I was chasing the first day I became a coach.
If we don’t know who is who because everyone is behaving the same then it’s boring. We don’t think it’s boring because we love tennis. But bring someone who doesn’t love tennis and they will think it’s incredibly boring.
Life is bigger than tennis.
After a certain point I know my players so well, I can anticipate their reactions.
I think I had a lot of impact on every player. Maybe it sounds cocky, but if I don’t feel I have an impact or a big impact, I wouldn’t be able to be excited about my work every day.
Tennis is fake. We have real characters, but they don’t dare to be themselves, and the code of conduct has a lot to do with that.
You can have the nicest academy in the world, it doesn’t make any difference, it’s all about the people. Our job is all about the people.
When you watch the top guys, you know there will be no drama all match. They’re gonna wipe their face between points, they’re gonna ask for balls, they’re gonna choose the ball, they’re gonna bounce the ball 200 times, they’re gonna hit the ball, and that’s it. That’s the whole story.
A game is a game. I don’t think we will change… should have shorter sets. No, do simple things to let people enter through a door that makes them be excited. If you let all the players express themselves, show who they are.
Every time the ATP or WTA speak about changing something, you see the reaction. So I think they’re doing a good job because those people are still watching tennis 40 years later and they are still fans so I’m not sure they should change because I don’t know how the fans would feel.
My brother is a musician and I’m in tennis.
People are watching sports to feel emotions. They watch movies for the same purpose.
Some sports give a lot of emotions because you know the people well, not personally but they express their passion and their emotion on the field so you have an attraction. In tennis, because of this code of conduct that is extremely strict, players do not show their personality.
