From ESPN - I liked this one:

Roger Federer: I will not serve wide to Novak Djokovic's forehand when I have match point. Not ever again.

Yup some of em were really good.

Federer should seriously resolve not to blow matchpoints. (break points are bad enough).

Nadal: "If seven in a row... I'll think of hiring a professional stabber."

Nadal's resolution should be to lose weight, what did he do all off season sit around and eat biscuits?

He is much thicker through the chest and shoulders, not the belly.

Then he must have amassed some more muscle in those areas

No you can tell it isn't muscle, he is clearly a little heavy and not in top shape.

Read the match thread and you will so others noticed it too.

Well biscuits dont store in shoulders you know. And match thread is not equal to an scale. So if you can measure his weight with ur eyes then fine but I did not notice anything

There is a picture in the match thread with him standing close to Federer it is obvious there too.

Andy Murray: I will get a suntan. Somewhere. Sometime.

Bodo clearly doesn't understand the skin pigmentation of Scots. It is so cold here that our default colour is blue. Once we've been in the sun for while we go a pasty white colour. We never, under any circumstances, get a suntan. There is no Gaelic word for 'suntan'.
