US Open quotes
Serena Williams
"One fell - I didn't put it on tight enough because I was rushing to go out (on court). It's a lot of bling to play with - you got to have the bling"
Serena Williams describes the demise of one of her 22,000 diamond chandelier earrings during her first-round victory.

"I guess I shouldn't expect anything less from Serena Williams"
Venus Williams on her sister's wardrobe malfunction.

"Obviously, they're more sexy, they show more skin and they talk more about that than actually their forehand and backhand. I get one question about fashion basically, but I think that's how it should be"
Roger Federer spends his day off commenting on the role of fashion in women's tennis.

"Of course I'm disappointed, I just didn't play my game. I will learn from it"
Svetlana Kuznetsova on giving up her US Open title in the first round.

"I didn't think during the match, just play and return balls. I just stay two metres behind the baseline and try to return balls"
Ekaterina Bychkova explains the tactical masterstroke that ended Kuznetsova's reign.

"I have one or two days off to improve, I hope in the next match I will play little bit better. And if I win, the next a little bit better"
Rafael Nadal is not happy at dropping 10 games in his opening win over Bobby Reynolds.

"I was pretty nervous, so it took me a while to settle in"
Andre Agassi still feeling the pressure in his 20th US Open.
