French Open day three quotes

Nikolay Davydenko
Davydenko will expect the unexpected if he faces Safin

"If Marat plays well he can be very good. He hits the ball hard, always makes winners. But sometimes he isn't so good."
Nikolay Davydenko sums up Marat Safin's career pretty much perfectly ahead of a possible second-round meeting with his fellow Russian.

"He's retiring every tournament. But then I see him play and I'm like: 'You play so good. Just keep going.' When you see him play, it's just amazing."
Dinara Safina comes to the aid of her enigmatic brother Marat.

"I hit the ball big, but I also do hit heavy."
Svetlana Kuznetsova is similarly incisive when analysing her own game.

"If a guy like me was able to play indoors playing top spin, imagine what a guy like Andy, who is more talented than I was, can do on clay. It's just a matter of time."
Former finalist and now Andy Murray's clay coach Alex Corretja on the Scot's prospects.
