China's Li Na waves goodbye to the Australian Open
China's Li Na waves goodbye to the Australian Open

"Very satisfied. Time to do shopping now."
Li Na doesn't seem too disappointed with her defeat to Martina Hingis.

"I think I had a pretty good draw, especially the first two rounds. I don't want to talk like some of the players 'I will win a Grand Slam'."
Anna Chakvetadze doesn't think much of her achievement in reaching the quarter-finals.

"I don't know what they were saying."
Kim Clijsters is bemused by a very noisy group of supporters, who chanted all the way through her win over Daniela Hantuchova.

"I haven't retired yet."
Clijsters gets a little tired of answering questions about her retirement at the end of the season... and it's only January.

"He played better. He served better and he returned better. I'm sure there's a million excuses I could come up with, but that's not my style. He won and he's going through to the quarter-finals. I'm not."
James Blake tells it like it is after his straight sets defeat at the hands of Fernando Gonzalez.

"Conventional wisdom says at 27 you can't add anything. But I haven't done my career extremely conventionally. Nothing about it has been by the book."
Blake insists there is still time for him to improve on his poor Grand Slam record.

"I do think that men's fashion is a little boring on the tennis court. I'd like to see them spice it up. You can't do white on white, that's just too boring."
Maria Sharapova, who has been sporting a primrose sarong-style skirt in Melbourne, tells the men to smarten up.
