Quotable Quotes: Snails & Wisdom Teeth
Daniela Hantuchova

NEW YORK, NY, USA - What keeps Daniela Hantuchova's fire burning? Who's trying to scare Laura Robson? Who is Victoria Duval's favorite character in SpongeBob SquarePants? More quotes, here...

Ana Ivanovic on what she misses about being No.1...
"Is there anything not to miss? I mean, it's a great position to be in. Obviously when you're No.1, everyone is trying to beat you and everyone is playing their best tennis against you. It's like you have a bull's eye on your back. But as much as it's tough, it's also a nice position to be in, definitely."

Angelique Kerber on what separates the US Open from the other Grand Slams...
"It's one of my favorite Grand Slams because everything started for me here. It's always special when I come back here and I have such great memories. I just take the positive energy from here, and also from Manhattan. It's a great city, a great tournament, and I always really enjoy my stay here."

Alisa Kleybanova on how her life has changed since Hodgkin's lymphoma...
"Inside, of course I feel stronger. It was something negative but also something positive. I always take it as a lesson. I learn. I always try to look forward and never to look backwards, no matter how bad or how hard something was. And obviously, I think whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

Agnieszka Radwanska on describing her own game...
"Well, I heard from other people that it's very entertaining, so maybe I will say that!"

Daniela Hantuchova on what keeps her on the tour...
"Just the love for the game. I love doing what I'm doing so much that I wouldn't change it for anything else in the whole world. That's the reason why I'm here, and that's the reason why I'm playing."

Laura Robson on getting her wisdom teeth out after the US Open...
"All the girls in the locker room tell me their horror stories, like, 'I pulled my gauze out and it was just blood.' So that's not too nice. Jamie Hampton was trying to scare me. She was like, 'Oh, I couldn't do anything for three weeks.' I don't really listen to her. Hopefully it'll just be a couple of days."

Roberta Vinci on whether she feels her game is unique...
"I have a different kind of tennis, but it's my key. Sometimes it helps me; sometimes not. Depends on the opponent. But this is my tennis. I can't play a different style. And I'm happy that I'm different."

Samantha Stosur on her season, right after her first round loss...
"Well, I've had a couple of good moments during the year, but there have been some pretty average ones, too. First round of the US Open is definitely not a good feeling. But I'm probably going to be giving a much worse answer right now than maybe a more logical or less emotional one tomorrow."

Victoria Duval on her favorite SpongeBob SquarePants character, Gary...
"I just think Gary's cute. Gary doesn't get enough credit. It's all about SpongeBob."
