Djokovic will get little sympathy from Roddick when the two meet on court
"Back and a hip? And a cramp? Bird flu? Anthrax? SARS? Common cough and cold? He's either quick to call a trainer or he's the most courageous guy of all time."
Andy Roddick continues to doubt Novak Djokovic's lengthy list of injury concerns - but stops short of suggesting the Serbian is faking it.
"I'm getting closer to reaching the same thing as my brother."
Presumably Dinara Safina plans to emulate her brother Marat Safin by becoming a US Open champion rather than one of the game's greatest enigmas.
"After being in China and playing twice against the Chinese?"
Safina, who won a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics, laughs off a suggestion she will be fazed by playing one of the Williams sisters in front of a partisan New York crowd.
"Every time I challenge I don't do it just because I think the ball is in. I just want to see how far out it is."
If Hawk-Eye is there, Andy Murray might as well use it as a training aid.
"We did good match. The people enjoy the match. He's more happy than me, but I'm not sad, you know."
Murray's beaten opponent Juan Martin Del Potro, moments before abandoning his press conference in tears.
"I thought for sure we'd be in three sets. I thought, I'm going to go change my dress because I'm really sweaty and put a new one on. And then I was like: 'Oh, maybe I won't have to do that'."
Serena Williams rubs it in as errors from sister Venus hand her a two-set victory.
"I don't think it'll ever be under-dramatised until we're housewives."
Venus dreams of a year when an all-Williams tie isn't the talk of the town.
"She's an actress. She's great for the tour because she's a great personality. She's had so many three setters because she wants to be in Hollywood."
Jelena Jankovic's former coach, Nick Bollettieri, on the Serbian's movie star potential.
"Thanks everyone for being here until two o'clock."
Rafael Nadal acknowledges the night owls watching his victory over Mardy Fish - the finish was 16 minutes short of the US Open record for the latest finish in New York.
