US Open day five quotes

Jelena Jankovic
Jankovic is making life hard for her mother in New York

"She told me she's under so much stress. It's tough for her to watch this. I wish I could finish two and two but it didn't work today. I will try my best to make it easier for her."
Jelena Jankovic puts her mother through the mill in another hard-fought win.

"I was so ****ed off that I didn't think about anything."
Lindsay Davenport on whether she considered her defeat to Marion Bartoli might be her US Open farewell.

"I've heard that this has been the main subject in the papers, and I've heard that they showed it on the TV. I even heard that she's here, so it's kind of strange, because I would be the first to know, probably."
Novak Djokovic is bemused by rumours that he is dating Paraguayan javelin thrower Leryn Franco after meeting her at the Olympics.

"It was a bit embarrassing. A few people sat where we usually sit, so I had to walk out while Claire went and asked them to move. I was too embarrassed to ask myself, but they were very nice about it... Obviously didn't work, though."
Anne Keothavong manages to eat the same meal at the same table at the same restaurant for the third time - but to no avail as she loses to Elena Dementieva.

"I schedule my life around my life, not his life. I was gone for dinner and he decided to do it quick. I was expecting five sets. I was there for four and five, but he wasn't there anymore, so that was the problem."
Roger Federer on why he didn't bother to watch Rafael Nadal's second-round win over Ryler De Heart.
