Hoffman: In front of 8,000 people at the Mercedes-Benz Cup in L.A., I returned a 127-mph serve from Mark Philippoussis. And I won the point. You can ask him. I lie in life a lot but never about tennis.
SI: What's the best tennis gift you have received?
Hoffman: My wife once gave me Jimmy Connors. It was a birthday gift for him to come over and play with me.
SI: Any player remind you of you?
Hoffman: Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario. She's a great hustler. A short retriever.
SI: Have you ever told her this?
Hoffman: I've never met her. If I met her, though, I would probably leave my wife for her.
