  • Quotes

    • Laura Robson: (Brit Laura Robson on winning the junior title) You kind of dream about it, I'm still in a bit of shock. I think I lost the second set because I started getting annoyed with myself. So I sat down after the second set and I thought: 'Well, if I want to win this, then I've got to change my attitude.

    • Serena Williams: (Serena on her defeat to her Sister in the Final) She was a little better today. It didn't work out the way I planned, It's a great celebration for our family, we're really happy. I've been working really hard and I'm so happy at least one of us was able to win.

    • Venus Williams: (post match comments) She played so awesome - it really was a task to beat her. It's unbelievable, especially after some of the injuries I've had to go through.

    • Venus Williams: (On playing her Sister 'Serena' in the Final) think this is what we've been aiming for. We haven't reached this achievement in a few years now. This is what we're always aiming for, and it's great that it happened.

    • Serena Williams: (Serena Williams pre-match comments on the Final against her Sister Venus) I'm not sure if the experience of playing my sister has got any easier, but the opponent has not become any easier, that's for sure. It's going to be a battle again. That's just how it is. We're both going in there playing, for me, the other best player. I hope that she feels she is also facing the best player. It's going to be a tough match.

    • Elena Dementieva: (Elena Dementieva on the Final between the William Sisters) I do not think for one second that games between Serena and Venus Williams are family decisions. What I meant was it is a unique situation for a family to be in.
