Fred Perry
Tactics, fitness, stroke ability, adaptability, experience, and sportsmanship are all necessary for winning.
Perry quotes
Whenever an opponent would make an especially good shot, Perry would cry out "Very clevah." I never played Fred competitively, but I heard enough from other guys that "Very clevah" drove a lot of opponents crazy.
I didn't aspire to be a good sport; "champion" was good enough for me.
