Q. Federer came in the other day and he said he didn't think you should be favorite for the tournament because you hadn't previously won a Grand Slam event.
ANDY MURRAY: Yeah.
Q. What's your reaction to that?
ANDY MURRAY: Well, I mean, I don't have a problem whether I'm a favorite or not. You know, I guess Roger would prefer to be favorite himself. That's absolutely fine.
"Everybody can think what they want to think. Everybody has the right to think and believe that they are the best in the world. We are professional athletes."
-- Jelena Jankovic
"You're only as good as your last Grand Slam win."
-- Venus Williams
"Well, she's Serena Williams, so just that name means a lot. Hopefully if I'm on the other side of the net from her, hopefully my name will mean a little something, too."
-- Venus Williams, on the prospects of playing Serena in the semis
"Well, like I said, there is lots of girls playing very well at the moment. It's the first Grand Slam of the year so everyone is kind of trying to get their form and to feel good about their game. The Williams sisters, Jelena, Dinara, Dementieva, they're all playing well at the moment. It's going to be a very, very tough Grand Slam. I think it's what makes it interesting for us, as the players, also for spectators. They really can't pick a sure winner."
-- Ana Ivanovic, not surprisingly playing Switzerland in all this.
