Roger Federer Quotes:

 "I guess it's mainly due to the fact that I didn't come here for many years. A few months ago, I didn't know what to expect with anything. Now I know where my level's at. I still don't know exactly where my absolute best is, but I feel like it could be there."

Rafael Nadal Quotes:

 "The first set-and-a-half was really fantastic, incredible. It's difficult to play so well. I did everything perfectly. Serving. Almost all the time I was attacking," said the defending champion.
"I was controlling the direction, the height of the ball, the width, the length of the ball. I was moving into the ball, and my opponent could not find any place to be."
