US Open quotes - day 15

Novak Djokovic
Try as he might, Djokovic just could not find a way past Nadal

"He has the capabilities already to become the best player ever. I think he's playing the best tennis that I ever seen him play on hard courts."
Novak Djokovic is in no doubt about where Rafael Nadal stands in the game after losing to the Spaniard in Monday's final.

"You just have to put a hat down for this guy, everything he does on and off the court. Great champion, great person, and great example of an athlete."
Djokovic confirms he is a fully paid-up member of the Rafa fan club.

"I want to congratulate you for a great attitude after losing a Grand Slam final, that's a great example for the kids."
Nadal on Djokovic. OK, enough now lads.

"It was like, OK - hit a winner, please hit a winner, please hit a winner, please hit a winner, please miss, please miss."
Doubles champion Vania King describes her ice-cool tactics at match point.

"I guess if you give somebody just candy to eat and that's all they're used to and now you've got to give them vegetables, or somebody only eats canned vegetables and now they don't even know what the fresh ones are like, that's how we grew up."
Doubles runner-up Liezel Huber on growing up in apartheid era South Africa.

"It's been a little bit too colourful and it didn't bring me luck in singles, so I decided not to continue playing the Open with it. I kind of wanted to match with Liezel. That's why I'm wearing black with a bit of peach."
Nadia Petrova answers the all-important question about her much-missed "stripey outfit".
