-- Rafa, on home sweet Paris home.
"I'm not even listening to what people are saying. I'm just focusing on myself, just taking one day at a time. I don't think about what I want to happen in 14, 15 or 16 days' time. I live for today. Today I had a practice. That's all. Tomorrow is another day."

"I prefer shouting"
-- Muzz, on racquet thowing. Thanks, Captain Obvs.
