You must play boldly to win.
Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.
Everyone I built a course for thinks they have the best golf course in the world and I’m very pleased and proud of that.
I remember every goal I’ve scored!
I’ve always wanted to become a professional soccer player.
Whenever people say “women’s soccer,” I want to correct them to say “soccer.” Every girl has had their sport diminished because they’re girls.
I never look at the goalkeeper’s eyes.
I could be a model for one night. But I’m also a professional soccer player, and I like to be taken seriously on the field.
One thing I’m proud to do like a girl is to represent my country in the Olympics and at the highest level, at the highest platform that I can.
Sportsmanship is definitely an important thing in all sports. In soccer, we all respect each other on such a high level, between Sweden and Brazil and Japan or whatever team it is.
Soccer is what I grew up doing – it’s my passion, and I’m way more comfortable on the field in my soccer cleats.
Music is so huge to soccer, to my life, to working out. I usually have headphones when I’m cleaning the house or making dinner.
I want to know I made women’s soccer better than it was when I came into it.
We’re going to be World Champions…forever.
I started off playing sports when I was five years old. I played three or four sports all throughout the year.
I really like my legs because I’ve worked hard for them. With soccer, that’s the one thing you’re working all the time.
I have done ‘Sports Illustrated,’ but I don’t regret it because it portrayed me in a positive way – as an athlete.
My favorite goals are the ones when there’s so much pressure. I focus more when the game is on the line.
I was the biggest tomboy growing up. Now I love playing with a full face of makeup.
When I leave the game, I want to go out on top.
