A look at some of the quotes given by sports personalities that caught our attention in the year gone by...

Serena Williams

She begins every interview with ‘I’m so happy. I’m so lucky’ — it’s so boring. She’s still not going to be invited to the cool parties. And, hey, if she wants to be with the guy with a black heart, go for it
— Serena Williams hits out at Maria Sharapova’s romance with Bulgarian player Grigor Dimitrov

Maria Sharapova

If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend who was married and is getting a divorce and has kids
— Sharapova on Williams’ relationship with French coach Patrick Mouratoglou

Gennaro Gattuso

Never have I ever had the slightest thought about possibly fixing a game. If something was proven I would be willing to go out into the street and, I know this is a strong thing to say, I would kill myself
— Italian World Cup winner Gennaro Gattuso responds to allegations that he was involved in a match fixing scandal

Tiger Woods

One magazine wrote that I was moving to Pakistan because I didn’t want to have kids with Tiger. How do they come up with this stuff? Tiger and I had a lot of fun with that at breakfast: ‘Bye, honey, sorry, I’m leaving you. Pakistan awaits.’ And he’s like: ‘Good luck, say hi to the Pakistani ski team for me’
— Skiier Lindsey Vonn on her life with Tiger Woods

Sachin Tendulkar

In the last 29 years, sir (Ramakant Achrekar) has never ever said ‘well played’ to me because he thought I would get complacent and I would stop working hard. Maybe he can push his luck and wish me now well done on my career, because there are no more matches in my life

Ryan Harris

As I’ve heard many times before, don’t tweet when you’ve had a drink
— Ryan Harris after a tweet rant against a Perth casino which disallowed him from entering because he was drunk

Lewis Hamilton

I remember waking up to watch the start of the race then going to sleep and waking up when it ended because I knew what would happen (when Schumacher was dominating). I am pretty sure a lot of people are doing that today
— Lewis Hamilton says Four-time World Champ Sebastian Vettel's dominance could be boring for fans

Lance Armstrong

If we’re going to be honest, then just say, ‘We had to go after him. He tested positive for being the biggest a**h*** in the world.’ Fair. I can live with that
— Lance Armstrong believes he has been 'singled out' again

Rahul Dravid

I would not lie, it was a very tough phase for us (Rajasthan Royals). It was a blow to the team. It’s something I have never experienced anything like it. It’s like bereavement in some ways
— Rahul Dravid on the IPL spot fixing scandal
