Aussie Open quotes
Marcos Baghdatis' support camp
Baghdatis' supporters were in full voice again on Friday

"I have 21 cousins here from my father's side. I have some uncles here, and all the fans here make me feel like home."
Cyprus' Marcos Baghdatis on his large support camp.

"I told them to keep it down, don't say anything rude. Today they were much better. They were singing stuff about me. It's better I think."
Baghdatis on his supporters again. Baghdatis' second-round victim Radek Stepanek complained about their behaviour.

"I have a bunch of half-naked women. He has a bunch of men. I know who I'd rather have dinner with me."
Baghdatis' next opponent Andy Roddick believes his bikini-clad supporters will be more than a match for the Cypriot's fans.

"When I do that it means I'm not going to miss the ball."
Maria Sharapova explains why her screaming sometimes gets louder.

"At one point when I was younger, I didn't know if I was going to play lefty, righty or both hands. If I feel comfortable enough to hit a lefty and I'm in the right position to do it, I'm confident I can make it."
Sharapova on her habit of hitting forehands off her backhand side.

"It was very tough to play. It was very tough to move. Even with an ice bag during the changeover, even with the hat, all in white, it was very, very tough to play good tennis. It was way too hot to play."
Fabrice Santoro after a "very tough" five-set win over Gaston Gaudio in temperatures over 100F.

"I think it was the best decision for me to win the match. It's way too hot to play."
Santoro again, after admitting he lost the fourth set of his match 1-6 to save himself for the fifth set. He won it.

"Everything I was trying just wasn't working. It was just one of those days."
Defending champion Serena Williams is honest after her third round defeat by Daniela Hantuchova.
