(UPDATED) HE SAID/SHE SAID: Roland Garros Day Four

Q. Sorry, the question is not too technical, but when you come out of the locker rooms and you have to come for a press conference ‑‑

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah. (laughter.)

Q. ‑‑ how easy it is? Because you come, you have to wear the hat which has to match the color with the jacket...

ROGER FEDERER: No, it doesn't need to.

Q. No? You don't pay attention to that?

ROGER FEDERER: No, that's all I have in my bag. It's pretty simple.

Q. You never get confused?

ROGER FEDERER: No. Because does this shirt match this jacket? I don't think so. (laughter.)

You know, that's all I had with me. Sometimes I feel like my hair is not the right way so I put the hat on. Like today. That's why I'm sitting here this way.

Q. You're among the players who tend to scream a little bit on court. Is there a meaning to that? I mean, does it give you energy, or is it more like a weapon against the opponent?

VENUS WILLIAMS: Yeah, I started because Monica Seles was my favorite player when I was 10. So I started grunting, and that was 20 years ago. I haven't stopped. I blame Monica.

Q. I have a recreational question to ask, if I can say. There are several players that are very active on Twitter, and from what I saw, it's not really your case. You have some messages, but what do you think about Twitter? A new communication tool.

JO WILFRIED TSONGA: Twitter, let me see. I don't really know Twitter. Well, I don't know Twitter at all. This is all I can say. I don't know. I don't know what you're talking about.

ARAVANE REZAI: Marion [Bartoli] is a difficult girl....She attacked me many times in the press. I don't have the same education as the one she has...I have respect for players. (via Doug Robson Twitter feed)

UPDATE: More on the Rezzie/Bart blow up. Grab your baguettes and pull up a chair.
