Roger Federer will go for his 14th Grand Slam title on Sunday
"At the US Open we have no days off, so let's be happy we have a day off here, to be quite honest."
Roger Federer is not about to admit that he has an advantage over Rafael Nadal with an extra day's rest ahead of the final.
"I was trying to think of who would beat me worse, either Roger or Rafa, and how long, like a five-minute set. They'd probably take me out in five minutes, so..."
Newly-crowned Australian Open champion Serena Williams turns her attention to taking on men's finalists Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

"I think she's much younger than me, like three years or something. I think she's OK. But I was better today, so what can I say?"
