Australian Open--what they said

In tennis history, players typically do not improve at 32. Yet all signs are that you have. How does that happen?
I don't know. I feel like, you know, in life 32 is young, you know. In sports it's old. But for whatever reason, I feel like I just never was really able to reach my full potential, and I feel like recently I just have been able to do a little better. I just keep trying to improve on everything.
 Serena Williams

How do you actually feel physically after that match? 
Feeling good. At least I'm not cramping, okay?
Li Na

The last point where the rain started falling really hard, do you think the last point should have been replayed?
I don't know. I don't know if there's a rule that says once some raindrops fall on the court you should stop. Maybe whoever won or lost that point was not going to be happy about it. But, yeah, I don't know. I can't really comment.

Li Na's self-exhortation "Come on, Li Na" works great for her....less so for "Come on, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova."
 Jon Wertheim

I always go into matches thinking it'll be my day. She played very well on the important points; it made a difference.
 Daniela Hantuchova

Do you need to raise your level at this point now that you're in the fourth round?
Well, if I don't, I won't be in the tournament much longer.
 Serena Williams
