Aussie Open day one quotes
Serena Williams
Serena shows off her new bag and new bling

"I have honestly never been in a happier state than what I am now. I'm always happy and smiling. I think because I have made it all about me, I put Serena as A, and A is first."

"I like the colour. I think it's really pretty. I like how it's all blue."

"When I see pregnant women walking, I'm like, how do they walk?"
Serena again

"With my website, I'm really interactive. I've written a lot of things about me. I have a part that's a relationship blog where I go through some of my friends' problems, what to do in a relationship, what not to do. I always try to bare my soul so people can get a better feeling for Serena Williams."
Guess who?

"I was praying actually. Please, God, help me get out of the situation. And I didn't want to go home, that was what was driving me, what was pushing me to go forward."
Jelena Jankovic after scraping past Tamira Paszek 12-10 in the third

"I feel like the British - when they're high, they're really high, and when they're low, they're really low. I don't feel like there's a lot of middle ground as far as the media is concerned."
Who? Us? American Andy Roddick gives his view on the pressure Andy Murray is under

"I don't really care, half my family is colour-blind anyway, so it doesn't matter."

"All these places I felt like I would never play again. And just to play a Grand Slam again, I never thought I would be in this arena again in my career. It's been a lot of fun."
Lindsay Davenport after her first Grand Slam match in two-and-a-half years

"Maybe the sign of the day to come was when my son woke up crying at 5am with a nightmare. I should have read more into that than I did."
Davenport on her struggle to beat first-round opponent Sara Errani

"I try to. I try to. I think it's the way to go for me, you know, play on the baseline, go to the net. I just try to be - I don't know how say that - like complete, no?"
Andy Murray's conqueror Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on the quest to be more consistent
