U.S. Open--what they said

It was difficult to play your best tennis, and I had to find the right balance between being patient and being aggressive.
Vera Zvonareva

I've always been enthralled by the power of trends in the tennis world. Players have such a gift for copying each other at every level.
Patrick Mouratoglou

Pam Shriver, commenting on Caroline Wozniacki's flying hair

Most of the people didn't believe in me, but you're not always going to play your best tennis, and to me, it didn't matter.
Vera Zvonareva

What are you gonna take away from your successful tournament here? What do you think was the best part that you learned about yourself making it this far?
The fighting spirit.
Kaia Kanepi

There haven’t been too many (comedians) on the women’s tour.
David Rosenberg, in reference to Andrea Petkovic
(Oops...there went Martina Hingis, Amelie Mauresmo, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Dinara Safina, Bethanie Mattek-Sands, and Francesca Schiavone--just to name a few of the WTA's players who have repeatedly brought laugh-out-loud humor to the tour for years.)

It felt like playing in a hurricane or something.
Caroline Wozniacki

I would say it was the most difficult conditions I have ever played in.
Dominika Cibulkova

If you're emotional, doesn't mean you're not mentally tough.
Vera Zvonareva

Wind gusted up to 34 mph and played havoc with Wozniacki's shots--to say nothing of Trump's hair.
