Ilie Nastase Quotes and Quotations about Ilie Nastase

After being fined $70,000- Team Tennis wanted a circus, so I gave them a circus.
Ilie Nastase
I can't believe how hard Agassi hits the ball. It's like he's got a gun. No one hit the ball like that in my day. Ion Tiriac didn't drive that fast.
Ilie Nastase (1988)
Nastase is a Hamlet who wants to play a clown. He is no good at it... Nastase rarely grins and bears it. More commonly he grins, groans, shrugs, slumps, spins around, shakes his head, puffs out his cheeks, rolls on the ground and bears it. Even more common, he does all that and doesn't bear it.
Clive James The Observer
Not since Betty Grable has so much been written about a pair of legs as John Lloyd's. Nastase's agent told me, in a fit of jealousy, that he hopes Lloyd gets varicose veins.
Taki (1978)
On being Nastase's coach - I feel like dog trainer who teach dog manners and graces and just when you think dog knows how should act with nice qualities, dog make big puddle and all is wasted.
Ion Tiriac (1972)
On being told to address Hie Nastase as Mister- Look, Nastase, we used to have a famous cricket match in this country called Gentlemen versus Players. The Gentlemen were put down on the scorecard as 'Mister' because they were gentlemen. By no stretch of the imagination can anybody call you a gentleman.
Trader Horn, Wimbledon umpire
When Hie Nastase's winning he's objectionable. When he's losing, he's highly objectionable.
Adrian Clark
