Who said what at Wimbledon -- Day 7

London (AFP) –


Who said what at Wimbledon on Monday, the seventh day of the 2021 tournament at the All England Club:

"Hopefully it rains again tomorrow... I'm kidding, I'm kidding."

-- Roger Federer on seeing the last-16 match between Daniil Medvedev and Hubert Hurkacz suspended for the night due to rain. The eight-time champion will face the winner for a semi-final place.

"It's kind of like my butt area."

-- Sebastian Korda on the injury he picked up late in his five-set loss to Karen Khachanov.

"For him to say that, it's definitely harsh."

-- Ajla Tomljanovic responding to John McEenroe's comments that her last-16 rival Emma Raducanu was forced to quit their match due to anxiety caused by the pressure of playing at home.

"Allyson Felix and Usain Bolt were the biggest memories I remember from the Olympics, just because -- honestly, it's probably bad -- but tennis is one of the sports I didn't watch at the Olympics. I watched everything else except tennis."

-- Coco Gauff on her memories of watching the Olympic Games.

"I consider myself a student of the game, but I probably should do my homework on the history a bit more. I was not aware of the fact what you just brought up."

-- Novak Djokovic on being told that reaching 12 Wimbledon quarter-finals puts him level with Britain's Arthur Gore who first played the tournament in 1888.
