Aussie Open quotes
Marcos Baghdatis and Roger Federer
Baghdatis can still smile, even in defeat

"I was getting to think I was emotionally ready for winning, which normally you shouldn't, but I can't block it out. I'm also just human."
Roger Federer explains his tearful response to winning his third straight Grand Slam title.

"Obviously, I know the importance of winning the French and what it would do to my career."
Federer only needs to win in Paris to complete a Grand Slam.

"That's a pretty good start and he's only 24." Australian tennis legend Rod Laver comments on Federer's seven Grand Slam wins and predicts that he will overhaul Pete Sampras' record of 14 triumphs.

"I did focus for two sets but then there were moments that I started thinking too much. Maybe I was a bit scared of him and didn't really believe in it." Marcos Baghdatis on why he lost in the men's final to Roger Federer.

"I'm a bit unhappy, I mean it's just after the match and I think it will take me two, three days to come back and smile again." Baghdatis knows he is still a winner, despite his loss.

"If anyone asks me why I came back, this is why - the dream of being back on court, of winning major titles."
Martina Hingis celebrates winning the mixed doubles with Mahesh Bhupathi.

"In winning in Melbourne, Amelie opens the road to Roland Garros."
France's Le Parisien newspaper gives Amelie Mauresmo 24 hours to enjoy her triumph before cranking up the pressure.
