The philosophy of FIFA is to expand world soccer space, to spread out the world football space.

Russia will not soon become, if it ever becomes, a second copy of the United States or England – where liberal value have deep historic roots.
What is a uni-polar world? No matter how we beautify this term, it means one single centre of power, one single centre of force and one single master.
Russia does not want confrontation of any kind. And we will not take part in any kind of ‘holy alliance.’
We must stop using the language of force and return to the path of civilized diplomatic and political settlement.

I am afraid of a lot of things. A dog. I could be afraid of a dog that’s upset, for example. And on the tennis courts, maybe on the outside I look fearless, but on the inside, I’m scared. There’s not one player in the world who isn’t nervous before matches. Especially important matches.
When one player is better than you, at this moment, the only thing you can do is work, try to find solutions and try to wait a little bit for your time. I’m going to wait and I’m going to try a sixth time. And if the sixth doesn’t happen, a seventh. It’s going to be like this. That’s the spirit of sport.
You fight, you try your best, but if you lose, you dont have to break five racquets and smash up the locker room. You can do those things, but when youve finished, nothings changed. Youve still lost. If something positive came from that, I probably would do it. But I see only negativity.
I have the same bedroom I’ve always had. It’s clean and tidy when I get home, and after two or three days it gets messy and my mother nags me.
Its silly to say it about a tennis player, but Im an unbelievable hero in Germany. And Germany needs heroes more than any place.
Two weeks ago, I was in a fantastic situation, winning at Roland Garros. Now, losing in the first round, it’s tough. The tour continues. Life continues. This is a sport of victories, not a sport of losses. Nobody remembers the losses. I don’t want to remember the loss.
