Andy Roddick's fan club in Melbourne

"It's nice when you have 30-odd girls in bikinis cheering for you."
Andy Roddick welcomes the support he received during his win over Wesley Moodie.

"As I think I read Andy Murray said, Roger was not playing well when he was 19. It happens. You just have to give them time because these days it's not easy, everybody's playing great tennis."
Ivan Ljubicic comes to the defence of Andy Murray and the other beaten teenagers in Melbourne.

"More than anything, the girl finds a way to win and finds a way to get her opponent uncomfortable. I'm sure she has a way to negate power still."
Lindsay Davenport talks up the return of Martina Hingis.

"There was no rhythm in the match. I was doing the mistakes and the winners - that's not the kind of game I like."
Justine Henin-Hardenne is hard to please after another straight-sets win.

"There's no such thing as an open draw. At least for me - I mean, obviously for Roger Federer, I think every draw feels open for him - but for me there's no such thing as an open draw."
Roddick plays down talk of an easy route to the quarter-finals.

"It is not easy for players in Asia. Asia is not like the United States or Europe. The weather is not conducive and the facilities are not so good. They need to be improved."
Asia's number two Wang Yeu-tzuoo after his defeat to Jarkko Nieminen.
