Some snippets from Wimbledon day 1 interviews:

On being asked whether she and her sister have a few years left to compete at Wimbledon:
"No, I mean, we have decades left at Wimbledon. We definitely plan on capitalizing."
Serena Williams

On being told that Alize Cornet was disturbed by her long medical break:
"So I was thinking about this only because it was a problem. I didn't want to disturb her."
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova

" family's background is very sporty."
Elena Baltacha

Explaining that, because of her religion, she does not get involved in politics:
"We don't get a part of those worldly things."
Serena Williams

Great quotes and great blog Diane.

I don't know if you heard the ESPN2 coverage of the Mauresmo-Harkleroad match yesterday, but Mary Carillo was going on and on about Harkleroad's appearance in a recent Playboy magazine. After another lengthy tirade, Mary Jo Fernandez just said, really slowly, "Haven't really seen that issue." or something like that.

It was hilarious.

Can't wait to hear your comments about the ESPN commentators. :)

I heard that and it was funny. "See what she's wearing?" Carillo asked, then something to the effect of "You won't see it for long!"
