Aussie Open quotes of the day

Kim Clijsters
Clijsters enjoyed getting her revenge on post-match interviewer Woodbridge

Kim Clijsters: "Rennae Stubbs showed me a text message you sent her while I was playing in Sydney about how you thought I was pregnant. You said: 'She looks really grumpy and her boobs are bigger.'"

Todd Woodbridge: "Thanks very much, there goes my TV career."

"What can I say different? What can I do different? Practice little bit tomorrow, rest in the hotel, maybe go to the aquarium. I didn't go this year. I go every year. So that's all."
Rafael Nadal does not plan to prepare any differently when he takes on Aussie Bernard Tomic in his next match.

"I'll go to the zoo or something, some bungee jumping or something like that. No, I'll definitely do something to take my mind off of it as much as I can, so it all sort of fades away a bit."
Tomic is learning from Nadal before they even step on the court.

"With Rafa, he's so fast and so strong that he gets there and he gets the ball back deep and you have to start all over again. You have to win the point two or three times just in order to get a 15 Love."
Ryan Sweeting gets a first taste of playing the world number one.

"I have some properties. I have some stocks, some different things. It's just a matter of saving it for maybe using it after your career."
Robin Soderling dispenses some sound financial advice. The Swede has won over £5.7m in prize money during his career.

"I'll definitely be watching Sam, if not live, at home. That's what I do every single night during the Australian Open is be a tennis tragic and sit on the couch for hours and hours and hours and watch tennis."
Alicia Molik looks to fellow Australian Sam Stosur's match later on Thursday.

"I think I can do it. It's just a matter of really believing in myself and keep working hard. Without work it's difficult to do it. But now I'm able to do it because I'm healthy."
Jelena Jankovic believes she can regain the form that made her world number one.

"With the state of Canadian tennis, I feel like there's a lot I can give to that. I hope to help the sport grow, so this isn't a big deal for us. We want this to be four times a year in each of the Grand Slams, we want to have this consistent level."
Milos Raonic, 20, plans to put Canadian tennis on the map.
