  • Quotes

    • Serena Williams: (On her opponent and her own concentration) I definitely think she increased her game, but also I think my concentration on some key points, it wasn't where it should have been.

    • Maria Sharapova: (On her performance against Viktoriya Kutuzova) I was just trying to hold on there and told myself it wasn't over until it's over.

    • Novak Djokovic: (On his performance) I was really happy physically with the way I was handling things. And this is a big advantage in these big tournaments, in grand slams.

    • Roger Federer: (On his 1st round victory) I'm very happy with my first round, I thought it was a very solid performance.

  • Notes

    • Rafael Nadal is the Men's defending champion who won't be defending his title this year due to a knee injury
