"Serena went over to the linesperson and voiced her displeasure."

Sexism award of the day (perhaps of the tournament):
"There were no histrionics and no hormonal outbreaks, just two proud and gifted jocks going about their business."
Bonnie D. Ford, writing for ESPN
"I just wanted to get back in the rhythm of playing tennis, so I have to thank the USTA for giving me the wild card to come back here."
“Last night everyone could truly see the passion I have for my job. Now that I have had time to gain my composure, I can see that while I don’t agree with the unfair line call, in the heat of battle I let my passion and emotion get the better of me and as a result handled the situation poorly. I would like to thank my fans and supporters for understanding that I am human and I look forward to continuing the journey, both professionally and personally, with you all as I move forward and grow from this experience.”
"I think it's important not to look back too much and say, If I would have won this point, maybe it would be different. I think it's important just to say, Okay, Kim was better than me in this and this, and I need to improve this to be better for next time. Hopefully I can hold up that trophy one day."
How's it feel to win a Grand Slam championship?
"Well, actually when I won, I hadn't realized I'd won. I thought, oh, I won the match. And then I put my racquet down, and it finally began to sink in."
"I don't have words for this."
Kim Clijsters, upon winning the tournament
