From the Leander Paes/Lukas Dlouhy interview, we have some awkward moments:

Q. When did you have a daughter?
LEANDER PAES: Four years ago today.

Q. I didn't know you were married.
LEANDER PAES: I'm not.

Q. Oh, well that's okay.


Q. Where did you grow up in Poland?
LUKAS DLOUHY: In Poland?

Q. Yeah.
LEANDER PAES: Lukas is from the Czech Republic.


And then they take the opportunity to ask Dlouhy about Berdych.

Q. What do people in Czech Republic think about him?
LUKAS DLOUHY: He's a star and nice guy. Still working hard, so people love him.

Q. Does he play hockey with you?
LUKAS DLOUHY: No. He cannot play ice hockey.
LEANDER PAES: Can he skate?
LUKAS DLOUHY: No. Not much.
LEANDER PAES: No? No way!
LUKAS DLOUHY: Uh-uh.


And Paes starts teasing his partner.

Q. What position were you in hockey?
LUKAS DLOUHY: At the beginning I was a defender and then I was center.
LEANDER PAES: You know the guy who drops his gloves when the fight breaks out.
LUKAS DLOUHY: No, that was not me. Definitely it was not me. When there was fight I was going to the...

Q. You were running to the side?
LEANDER PAES: Don't believe that. Uh-uh. You should see him in the locker room. My god.

By and large, the stars behaved like stars. Serena Williams, playing as though her hair was on fire, waxed Julia Goerges, a pleasant 21-year-old from Bad Oldesloe, Germany, in 55 minutes. She won nine consecutive games at one point and made a total of four unforced errors.

It was such a compelling contest that only one question in her news conference was match-specific. At one point, she was asked what the key to a good manicure was.

"Proper cuticles," Serena said, without hesitation. "Not cutting them, but just pushing them back."

The next question, however, was about tennis.

"No," Serena said, "I'm not answering questions about tennis today."

Q. What happened out there tonight?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: I won the match in three.


Let's hope this streak of answering the question literally stops soon.

What does it take to get Clijsters to go off script?

Q. Doesn't seem that there are many young 18 year old girls playing at the top of the game these days. What would you attribute that to? Do you think that's also to do with the fact that...

KIM CLIJSTERS: Can you look at the script from my previous press conference, because I answered that already last...

Q. Can you just talk briefly about it?

Wow, even Kimmie gets irked at times.

Vera seems to cope well with the inane Qs:

Q. If you had to go out for dinner with a Russian tennis person, which one do you choose between the women and which one do you choose between the men?
VERA ZVONAREVA: That's a tough question. We go eat out with a lot of girls, you know, during the tournament, Russian girls. A lot. With guys more...

Q. Pick one.
VERA ZVONAREVA: Why? You need a story? (laughter.) You want a story?

Q. Yes.
VERA ZVONAREVA: I'll pick Matt Damon. He might be -- he might be Russian in his next movie. (Laughter.)
