-- Amanda Anisimova on pre-match stress.

"I would just miss a ball long in the warmup and they would be like, 'Out'. And I'm like, Oh, my God, what is happening here. Like it really shook me. And I kind like was likes, Oh my God, like, they're all against me here and it was a zoo out there.

-- Felix Auger-Aliassime is tired of comparing generations.

"I don't know anything about whether my visa is going to be reinstated or whether I'm going to be allowed to come back to Australia. I would like to. I would like to go there and play Australian Open. I don't hold any grudges."
