I'm not an iceberg. Goran Ivanisevic, the No 4 seed responding to criticism that he never smiles.

It's a nice thing that younger girls are cheering for me. It is better younger girls than younger guys. Ivanisevic.

I had 13,000 people supporting me today. That's what won me the match. Britain's Greg Rusedski after his memorable four-set victory over the No 16 seed Guy Forget, of France.

I don't want to talk about Greg Rusedski any more. Chris Wilkinson, who objects to Canadian Rusedski's conversion to the British cause.

He played well - I didn't. So that combination didn't provide a very good recipe for me. Miles Maclagan after being overwhelmed by British compatriot Wilkinson.

All of a sudden, he decided he wanted to be part of the match, which I wasn't too happy about. Pete Sampras on the umpiring of Carlos Ramos during the champion's Centre Court match with Britain's Tim Henman.

I've still got a lot to learn about playing on grass. Mary Pierce after the No 5 seed had lost to fellow Frenchwoman Nathalie Tauziat.

I'm sure Martina was disappointed but I'm sure she understands. Heinz Gunthardt the coach of the No 1 seed Steffi Graf on her withdrawal from the women's doubles which left the veteran Navratilova without a partner.

She's not a whiner and I wasn't going to twist her arm. I just took it on the chin. Steffi felt she needed to take care of her body. Navratilova.
