U.S. Open--what they said

Let's get over it a little bit and let her have a normal life and progress in her tennis.
Chris Evert, on CiCi Bellis

And the wigs, I really need a Tina Turner wig.
I don't know about that one. I don't do that.
You can do that.
No, I don't.
Serena Williams

It was windy. Our court start with the shade and it was slowly to cover all the court. Sometimes I couldn't really see the serve. You know, sometimes when it's going from the sun to shade, it's not really visible.
Petra Kvitova

The final set was a tense affair, with neither dropping serve until the ninth game. Kanepi served for the match only to serve to stay in it two games later, but the pro-Stosur crowd was begging for a final-set tiebreak.
David Kane

My job was to be kind of a wall today. I think I managed to do it very well.
Aleksandra Krunic

She's almost afraid to make that commitment to win--kind of like a Sloane Stephens.
Chris Evert, referring to Sorana Cirstea

I could not believe how incredibly inane ESPN's commentary was last night during the Bouchard/Cristea match. You would think the tennis gods gifted Genie to us straight from heaven.
