U.S. Open--what they said

"I've never met her before, so shaking her hand after the match was the first time I met her. It was crazy."
Melanie Oudin, on her match against Maria Sharapova

"...I just wanted to keep her mostly on her backhand side, but also make her run to her forehand."
Caroline Wozniacki, on her strategy against Melanie Oudin

"I missed a few opportunities. I was pretty mad at myself. I kept fighting and kept hanging in there and just came back."
Yanina Wickmayer

"I knew kind of what I was getting into with the crowd and everything. I talked to my dad, who is my coach, and he said, 'Go into your own bubble.'"
Caroline Wozniacki

Did you surprise yourself at all with how strong you were mentally here?
"I think I did sometimes, but I've always been strong mentally. That's been one of my like key strengths, and I think that I can still get stronger mentally. Today I was a little bit fragile, I think."
Melanie Oudin

"Even if I had a break point she didn't give me a chance to win it. She just played unbelievable. When she was break point down she kept hitting winners."
Kateryna Bondarenko, referring to Yanina Wickmayer

"Usually, I don't like to think about my matches ahead of time, but this time, it was impossible."
Caroline Wozniacki
