Manic Monday's Quotes of the Day
Roger Federer, Venus Williams and Johanna Konta share their thoughts after a memorable day in SW19 READ MORE

Highlights from the interview rooms on Day 7 of The Championships...

Roger Federer gets into the spirit of Manic Monday:
"I like good matches for the crowd. Personally I get very excited just watching it, when Muller has match points, to see what Rafa is going to come up with, what is Raonic going to do at the end of the fourth, is he able to push it to the fifth? I think that's super exciting."

Benoit Paire says he's looking forward to a full pay packet:
"Didn't take any warning. First time in Wimbledon, maybe in a Grand Slam! So the good thing is I don't have any fine. Normally when I see my prize money, it's a little bit less than I saw on the paper. Now I'm really happy. I can have a drink tonight."

Victoria Azarenka puts her fourth round defeat into perspective:
"I don't go to empty house after my loss and just cry there. I go home and spend time with my son. Regardless if I won or lose, he's still gonna smile when he sees me."

Johanna Konta gives us an update on her baking:
"White chocolate and raspberry muffins, so far they're the biggest hit. Previous to that it was a chocolate chip muffin. But I had two of those: I had the 1.0 and the 2.0. The 1.0 I forgot the vanilla essence. The second one was better. I'm thinking that maybe tomorrow, if I've got time tonight, it will be a chocolate chip and banana muffin, though I'm getting a lot of pressure to make a banana nut muffin from a certain member of my team."

Svetlana Kuznetsova on the role of pet dog, Dolce:
"He's my emotional support animal. My dog let me relax. For me, it's something which brings me an amazing amount of support. I would travel with him more. If I would be Roger Federer, I would get private jet everywhere and travel with my dog."

He's my emotional support animal. My dog let me relax

Venus Williams explains why she won't be Skyping her dog, Harold, during her stay in London:
"It's too upsetting for him. He hears me, but he doesn't understand where I am."

Jelena Ostapenko says bring on the quarter-finals:
"I like to play with a lot of people watching me, with a crowd. I really enjoy that. I don't like when I play and nobody's watching the match, like very few people. I mean, it's not fun."

Magdalena Rybarikova feels success at Wimbledon has been a long time coming:
"I think eight years in a row I lost in the first round. Right now in the quarter-finals. So I guess it really fits my game!"

Caroline Garcia is under no illusions as to whether Johanna Konta can shoulder expectations this week:
She can definitely handle the pressure... I think she's doing good. She's a very tough player, very good player."
