James: (on missing the Masters Series) For me it's something that doesn't quite fit into the schedule. It's going to be real tough to go from Houston all the way over to Monte Carlo, then come back just for a week or two to train for Rome. For the Americans, that tournament has never been exactly the easiest one in the schedule. I'm not going to be able to make it to that one.
James: (after losing to Thomas Johansson in the semifinals of the Davis Cup) Yeah, I'm disappointed in the way I played today. I didn't return well. I didn't serve well. I wish I could have done better. Any amount of crying or wingeing about it now isn't going to get me back out on the court now. The only thing I can do is go home, go back to Connecticut and practice, hit a bunch more serves, hit a bunch more returns, and then take this frustration out on whoever I play first round next week at the Pilot Pen.
James: (talking about the U.S Open) Hopefully not yet. Hopefully I'll do well at the Pilot Pen like last year and go in with that kind of confidence.
James: (talking about his backhand at the RCA Championships) Yeah, I definitely didn't feel like I was returning well. He put his serves in the right spots, mixed it up well. But still just feel like I could have returned better.
James: I don't have any specific advice for any other players how to beat Nadal. People have been saying how big I was hitting the ball, but when you think about it, you really have to go for your shots.
James: (About playing Nadal on hard courts) I've been lucky enough to play him all three times on hard courts, which is definitely my favor more so than if I were to play him at the French Open.
James: I'm never going to win a match against him playing really conservative. (Regarding his playing style against Rafael Nadal)
