She would be better if she didn't waste so much energy on histrionics.
Elise Bergin, commenting on Barbora Zahlavova Strycova
Her analysis of Henin-Kuznetsova should be preserved and sent to all colleagues. Real insight. Some candid opinions. Anecdotes. And when the tennis got good, she shuts up. She also realizes that anyone watching tennis at this hour is a FAN and thus doesn't need to be told that "It's 5-3, just a game from the set." Such a pleasure.

Serena's a regular Houdini at the Australian Open.
Can you tell us a few words about Kim Clijsters.
Yeah, but why Kim?
Just in general, what can you tell us about her comeback?
You know who is Kim. I think I don't have to tell you who is.
Then the nerves game. Then started to do a little bit of show time, you know, it's like comedy.
I think overall I couldn't just hit the ball into her strike zone. I think everyone saw how well she hit the ball.
Sam Stosur, commenting on Petra Kvito
Just a question on behalf of New Zealand. I know there were a few dramas earlier in the week or funny things. I just wanted you to confirm that there was no problems in New Zealand, that you had a good time there, because it's very important for our tourism. Did you have a good time?
You couldn't even say that with a straight face....
So New Zealand was a great experience?
Does it go back to the tourism? What are we trying to prove here? Do I get a free boat ride next year if I say the right answer?
I don't know. That's a little shady.
