No. 2 women's seed Kristi Miller, Georgia Tech
On coming back after yesterday's three-set win: "The conditions were a little bit different. It's tough the first couple of rounds. I have been fighting through for my first best tennis to come. You know you can play some dangerous people in the first couple of rounds when you're a high seed and they don't have a lot to lose and you just have to go out there and compete. You have to be confident that your best tennis will come out."

No. 1 women's seed Audra Cohen, Miami
"I came out here really slow and played an awful first set and didn't really get my heels into the match until halfway through the second set. I think early round nerves got to me, but by the time it was the third set, I started to play better tennis and out-competed her and played my game and stuck to it and got the `W'. At four-all in the second set, I went up 5-4, and after that I didn't lose another game the entire match."

No. 8 women's seed Amber Liu, Stanford
"I played all right. It's pretty windy out there today, so it's kind of tough, but overall, it was nice to get through the second round. I'm just going to take it one match at a time now."

No. 1 seeded women's doubles pair Alice Barnes and Anne Yelsey, Stanford
Barnes - On tonight's three-set match:
"It's a good job it's three sets. We were a little bit slow at the start. They did play well, and it's not that we underestimated them, we were just a little slow at the start. It took us, well, almost two sets to find our rhythm, but luckily we did. We've got a real feel-good factor going on here and we were able to get the intensity going and we got our good energy back."
Yelsey - On returning to the court tomorrow: "I think we ended the day on a really good note. It always feels good to come back like that and I think Alice and I are going to have a lot more confidence. There are a few things we have to change going onto the court tomorrow, but I think after tonight's match, we definitely have more confidence and we're looking forward to it."
