British player Tara Moore on Elena Baltacha. Moore, who was raising money for Rally for Bally with £3 donated by her sponsor for every fist pump, was defeated by Vera Zvonareva 6-4 7-6 9-7
"She was probably one of the best British players out there, and she fought every single match. She fought off the court and on the court. I mean, that's what I aspire to be. I want to fight in every single point and every single match. I hope I did today.
Grigor Dimitrov who defeated Luke Saville 6-3 6-2 6-4
"I just want to say how honored I was to play on the Centre Court. I think it's every kid's dream."
And on his work ethic compared to Maria Sharapova’s
"All I can say is that I think Maria's one of the best workers that can be out there, one of the best students of the game. In the end of the day, you know, she's just the best at what she does. I'm just different towards my preparation and how I like things to be done. I mean, I'm also a workaholic. It's sort of a fair deal."
Andy Murray who brushed aside Slovenian Blaz Rola 6-1 6-1 6-0, when asked about Uruguyan footballer Luis Suarez’s bite of Italy’s Giorgi Chiellini

It's funny. I prefer just to have a two over there, but still.

David Ferrer asked how he feels after his second round defeat by Andrey Kuznetsov 6-7 6-0 6-3 6-2
"Well, now, of course I am sad. It is a disappointment for me. What can I do? I tried to do my best. I lost. This is a game. It's not the end of the world."
