Monday's Quotes of the Day
Andy Murray, Petra Kvitova and Rafael Nadal talk mid-match chatter, visiting surgeons and knees READ MORE

Highlights from the interview rooms on Day 1 of The Championships...

Andy Murray on his mid-match chat with Alexander Bublik during their third-set rain break:
"It's rare that you speak to someone during a match. Just asked him how he liked Centre Court, all that stuff. Just had a little chat."

Rafael Nadal jokingly remains cautious about his body after a long clay-court season:
"My knees are ready for the second round probably, that's all."

Petra Kvitova confirms she invited her surgeon to watch her first-round match against Johanna Larsson:
"It was very nice that he sat in the box for my match. It was a special one. I'm really glad that he took the invitation."

American Madison Keys admits Kvitova's comeback has touched her heart:
"Every time I watch her play now, I'm an emotional wreck. I try not to watch too many of her matches!"

Andy Murray's second round opponent, Dustin Brown, on the most significant element of their last meeting when the Scot won in straight sets:
"It wasn't grass."

Elina Svitolina is trying to forget blowing a set and 5-1 lead over Simona Halep at the French Open:
"I don't think about it. If I would all the time come back to that match, probably I would be in the crazy house."

Naomi Osaka says her next opponent, Barbora Strycova, has given her a nickname:
[She calls me] Shinkansen, which is like a Japanese bullet train. I don't know why. It sounds cool, so I'll take it.

Marin Cilic is in no doubt Mario Ancic is a good addition to Novak Djokovic and his team:
"He's a great guy. Definitely we were all sad seeing him finish his career so early, but I think extremely positive for Novak."

Dominika Cibulkova reveals the ruthless side to professional tennis:
"If you're not strong enough, then everybody else will eat you."

Nick Kyrgios on resorting to surgery to mend his hip:
"I would do everything possible to avoid it. But I don't know... I'm obviously a little bit scared."
