Victoria Azarenka: (on reading the comments about whether women should or could play three out of five sets at the slams) Well, I read about it. I think there has been a lot of talk about it. It's been brought so much into the press, and I think we can stand by one opinion that all the women have: We're ready to play, whatever it is.

Sara Errani: (on what changed in that first set from 5 2) Yeah, the more important thing was that we changed balls. The ball after one game was like cats, so was a bit heavy and I was feeling more comfortable. Then on 5 2, we changed, and then she also started to play better, more aggressive. But of course, the very important thing was the change of balls.

Angelique Kerber: (on losing to Serena Williams) I think I served very good, but she was returning unbelievable. Actually, she didn't give me a small chance to breathe, and I had, in the whole match, I had actually the feeling that she was she gives me pressure all the time. And I was trying to, you know, to maybe change the rhythm also, but she played everything so good today, so there was no chance to change something.

Serena Williams: (on considering buying a house in Hong Kong so she can prepare better for championships in Singapore next year after China Open) I love Beijing. It turns out it's actually my favorite city.

Agnieszka Radwanska: (on losing to Petra Kvitova) I think, you know, she really uses her left, you know, served from the left hand really well today. I was really in trouble, and of course I had a couple of chances. Not much, but, you know, I definitely could win the last game even and maybe that would change the score.

Petra Kvitova: (on if she wanted to close the match in straight sets) Yeah, finally I play only two sets. Big surprise for you, right? Yeah, I think that to start with the two sets is great against Aga, too. For me it really doesn't matter if I win two or three. So I won. That's it.
