  • Quotes

    • Andy Roddick: Sorry Pete, I tried to hold him off for you.

    • Andy Roddick: (On losing out in the Final to Roger Federer) I'm one of the lucky few who gets cheered for, so thank you for that. I just want to say congratulations to Roger, he deserves everything he gets, so well done Roger.

    • Roger Federer: (On beating Andy Roddick to win yet another Wimbledon title) Andy played unbelievable. It feels great. It was a crazy match with an unbelievable end and my head's still spinning, but it's an unbelievable moment in my career. It's not one of those goals you set as a little boy but it's been quite a career and quite a month. This is not why I'm playing tennis, to break records, and this doesn't mean I'm going to stop playing tennis. I hope to come back for many years.

    • Roger Federer: (Pre-match comments) Tension always comes back for any Grand Slam final. Knowing you only have one match to go definitely changes your mindset. Records are part of this great match so it's obviously an incentive to try really hard.

    • Andy Roddick: (On getting to a Wimbledon final) I didn't know if I was going to get to play a final of Wimbledon again. I'm certainly thankful to have that opportunity .
