Player Quotes from Wimbledon

Q. At the French Open you might have heard about Federer, Djokovic, Nadal doing some karaoke to promote the tournament. If Wimbledon asked you to do the same thing, one would you do it and two, what would your tune be?
A: I don't sing.

Q. Not at all?
A. No, not at all. I don't sing. It wouldn't be fun. It would start raining.

Q. What about your outfit here at Wimbledon this year? Anything special about it?
A. Yeah, it's Swan Lake inspired.

Q. I have no clue what that means.
A. When you see it, you'll see a swan. You'll be inspired. My coach saw it the other day and he said he started feeding bread to it, so he got it (smiling).

A. Did he say that or are you guys saying that?

Q. It's another year, isn't it? It's another French Open final, isn't it? Another defeat. Maybe he's thinking, Am I ever going to win this damn thing?
A. Know what that's like.

Q. That's just my impression.
