US Open quotes - day five

Ryan Harrison
Harrison missed three match points against Stakhovsky

"I double faulted at six-all and it just wasn't smart."
Teenager Ryan Harrison feels the anguish after his five-set defeat by Sergiy Stakhovsky.

"It was a nice atmosphere. Except that 99.9 per cent of the people were against me."
Meanwhile Stakhovsky fails to feel the love despite his win.

"A match like this today probably gives me more satisfaction, because I beat a good player without even playing my best tennis."
Defending champion Kim Clijsters sets an intimidating marker following her victory over Petra Kvitova.

"It was so strange, because like since last evening we all were talking about how bad it's going be today. You know, coming to the stadium, I was like looking at the window, expecting where is the rain? Where is the wind?"
Elena Dementieva is left unimpressed by Hurricane Earl.

"Is nothing programmed. Is just instinct. Is art."
Francesca Schiavone on her "hot-dog" winner against Alona Bondarenko.

"I don't want that to be the lasting image of my career."
John Isner hopes to give the fans something else to remember him by other than his marathon match at Wimbledon.

"It's true also when I was struggling, she was messaging me. She was very supportive. That's really rare and really nice to see. In those times, you know who your friends are."
Ana Ivanovic confirms the long-held suspicions that Kim Clijsters is one of the sport's good apples.
