Who's saying what

"In a day or two I will be yesterday's news. There are more important things going on than hitting a tennis ball."
-- John Millman after his US Open fairytale was ended by Novak Djokovic

"I like sweating."
-- Naomi Osaka after beating Lesia Tsurenko

"I was freaking out inside, my whole body was shaking."
-- Osaka

"The only similarity is their big hair."
-- Osaka's coach Sascha Bajin on how the Japanese player and Serena Williams, who he used to work with match up.

"I thought she was a little bit more of a diva because she didn't talk much. You know, she doesn't really look at someone's eyes, but that's just because she was always so shy. She would just keep her head down a little bit, which is cute now. Back then I didn't know for what reason. I feel bad for prejudging."
-- Bajin on his first impressions of Osaka

"She looks matured and she looks older, but when we talk, she's a kid!"
-- Kei Nishikori on compatriot Osaka
