US Open quotes - day seven

Taylor Dent
Taylor Dent spent his evening watching Murray returns fly past him

"He made it look and feel like I served it underhanded out there sometimes. I tried to mix up my spins, mix up my paces and give him different looks. I think he's number one in the world at breaking guys, so that makes sense."
Taylor Dent is the latest to suffer at the hands of Andy Murray's returning game.

"Sometimes I'm such a perfectionist, I too much stress on myself. I was like, 'Serena, relax!"
Serena Williams takes a chill pill.

"When she's playing like this, I don't think there's anybody that can beat her."
Daniela Hantuchova goes some way to proving her own theory about Serena Williams.

"I have to take her side on this. I think that she was first on. She should've played at 7pm. They should have moved the men's match. Simple as that, that's how it should be done. If you're supposed to play a match, you're supposed to play it, and then you move the next match."
Serena comes to the defence of Dinara Safina, who was unhappy her match on Saturday was moved because the schedule was overrunning.

"No, I don't want to talk about injuries. Sorry. No, no, I am a little bit tired to talk about injuries. I am here to try my best every day."
Rafael Nadal talks about his inju.... something else.

"I think he played better than me and he won the match."
Nicolas Almagro gives his verdict on his match against Nadal.

"Very weird."
Kim Clijsters is asked to describe the first two sets of her match against Venus Williams, which went 6-0 0-6.

"Until I started practising for that exhibition at Wimbledon, I never thought that I was going to be back. Never, ever did I doubt it or did I think about it even."
Clijsters insists that when she retired two years ago, she meant it at the time.

"Sometimes, I don't know why, I just feel a big pain."
Gilles Simon is talking about his knee and not life in general, we think.

"It's difficult to play against Koellerer, because you never know what he's going to do after the point."
Juan Martin del Potro was not the only one bemused by Daniel Koellerer's antics.

"I didn't lose my temper. I was fighting the best I can. Physically I couldn't do it."
Vera Zvonareva explains why she smashed her racquet and got warned for an audible obscenity.
