Gael Monfils
Gael Monfils is a man of many talents

"Sveta is a great player. It's always tough to play against her. She's a big player but she's also human."
Victoria Azarenka looks forward to a big challenge when she faces fourth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova in round four.

"She's tough. She can play good. She has nothing to lose. She hits the ball really strong. I'm really looking forward to this duel."
Kuznetsova will be ready for anything against Azarenka.

"It was like my twin sister was here, and then Maria actually made her flight and made it for the second set."
Maria Sharapova has a novel explanation for her improved form in the second set against Karin Knapp.

"I can play good tennis on any surface. There aren't many players with my kind of style. I can play at the back, I serve and volley and mix up the game to my advantage and I feel great about that."
Expect Radek Stepanek to be picking up the trophy next Sunday then.

"I also speak Caribbean French. It depends on my mood."
Gael Monfils is asked why he sometimes shouts to himself in Slovakian on court. Show-off.

"I think there will be three players. You know, Nadal and Federer and Djokovic have shown this. They are well above the others. This is the way it is."
David Ferrer does little for the confidence of anyone who has had a bet on him for the title.
