Wimbledon--what they said

Do you think because of what you've been through over the last couple of years with injuries and form, things like that, do you think if you might have lost today, that could have possibly been your last time here?
...you know, it didn't really cross my mind about losing today's match. It was quite clear the standard of tennis wasn't super high, but I think that's because of what's on the line, the expectations. It was never going to be a pretty match.
Anne Keothavong

You had a strap on your back.
I'm pretty much taped up everywhere.
Serena Williams

You don't use the LTA money. Can you explain that?

We haven't done for a long time. I don't really want to get into it. It's very political. I'm just concentrating on my tennis, leave the politics to other people. I'm just working as hard as I can and let my tennis speak for itself.
Naomi Broady

...no, I don't change my tennis for to play Wozniacki. I try to be aggressive every time when I play on clay court or with more intelligence, tactic, because you don't play the same on clay court than on grass.
Virginie Razzano

After what you faced off the court, is there anything on the court that can faze you?
Well, I wouldn't necessarily want to face Nadal at the French Open.
Serena Williams

I really felt for her. It actually brought a tear to my eye. I thought, You've got to snap out of it because you've got a match.
Elena Baltacha, on Serena Williams

… If she wins the next two or three matches, I think she can win the tournament.
Aravane Rezai, after playing Serena Williams

I don't look ahead and think how amazing it would be to hold the trophy. Obviously I'm very fortunate to have had that feeling before and knowing how good that feeling is. That's what drives you deep down inside. But I also think on the other hand if you want something so bad that you can't sleep over it, where is that going to get you, as well?
Maria Sharapova

She seemed to run you back and forth a little bit.
Yeah, I know. I hate that, you know. I like it standing.
Li Na
