US Open quotes - day three

Ivan Ljubicic
Even an ice pack under the shirt could not help Ljubicic avoid defeat

"I would be in favour of an indoor tour altogether if you ask me."
Ivan Ljubicic is no fan of the sweltering New York temperatures.

"It seemed like every time I had an opening she came up with a big serve, so I guess I know what it's like now playing myself."
Venus Williams pays opponent Rebecca Marino the ultimate compliment.

"I did notice at one point that she started to grunt pretty loudly. And it's like, 'Whoa, she's getting serious here.'"
Marino returns the compliment - sort of.

"That's something I will always remember and it was truly a pleasure to be on the court with Nicolas that day for a historic match. But I want to put it behind me. I want to do well in the big tournaments."
John Isner is asked about that match once again.

"Now I feel as I though I'm just coming up again and I really have nothing to lose. I've got that joy of competing again."
Ana Ivanovic is relishing being the underdog after struggling to come to terms with being number one two years ago.

"He beat me 6-1 6-3 and it was at Querbes Racquet Club in Shreveport, Louisiana. He really knew how to play, and has obviously taught me my game since I was really little. So he went out and put a good beating on me, and I took it well."
American teenager Ryan Harrison explains losing to his father in the local city championships when he was aged 11.

"I thought the one against Djokovic last year was better because Novak was at the net. It was a bit harder. Dabul was out of position when he hit the lob. They were both great shots."
Andy Murray gives his view of Roger Federer's through-the-legs winner against Brian Dabul on Monday night.

"That was an accident. I mean, he hit a drop shot and I ran up there and it was kind of better than I thought. I didn't mean to hit it there. I felt bad because he's my buddy."
Sam Querrey is asked about "the shot to the privates" of opponent Bradley Klahn.
