US Open quotes - day nine

Francesca Schiavone
Schiavone is not downhearted as her record against Venus slips to 0-8

"She doesn't like to play with me - I play different balls, I push her in defence, I don't give her the chance to play how she wants. This time is for her, but I will find the way to beat her."
Francesca Schiavone is determined that she will one day defeat arch enemy Venus Williams.

"You are just, you are with your sixth sense, in the ball, in the point, knowing how important it is, and, just trying to run, fight."

Fernando Verdasco explains how to come back from 4-2 down in the fifth set and 4-1 down in the tiebreaker before rallying for only his second win when trailing by two sets.

"They have a lot of courts. They have a lot of good facilities to practice well. I think it's not really expensive to practice in Spain for Spanish people. In Russia now it's much expensive to practice in Moscow. Not everybody can do this."

Russian Mikhail Youzhny on the Spanish show at the US Open.

"You think about it - you guys tell me that every day I'm in here. It's annoying that the Europeans are in the quarters every Slam but we're trying."
Sam Querrey on shouldering the burden of being the last American man in, and now out of, the US Open.

"It's always going to say, 'There's no Americans left in the tournament.' And then some guy way in the back will say, 'What about the Bryans?' We like that guy."
Mike Bryan on the perils of being a doubles star.

"I've got a lot of experience of rain breaks from Wimbledon."
Two years, no rain, no hurricanes, no gale force winds, Venus. That's all we're saying.

"I didn't play a good match but I was still able to win it. Even after the match I was 'how did I win this?'"
Kim Clijsters admits that 43 unforced errors was pushing it against Sam Stosur.

"Just salute for thanks for crowd, you know. Everybody, a lot of guys, kiss their hands and say thanks, put racquet up and say thanks. I do like this one."
Mikhail Youzhny explains his unusual victory salute.
