Dave Saffran/NYSD

CHICAGO – John Isner: “Tonight’s dinner should be on the rookies. We will try to keep it to $10000.”
 
John McEnroe team captain: “We try to save the best players for last. As far as tennis is concerned,not having a 5th set tiebreaker at any tournament is absurd.
 
Kevin Anderson: “I played in college at Illinois so it is fantastic coming back here. My wife’s family is from here.”
 
Bjorn Borg team captain: “I was happy retiring when I did (at age 26).”
 
Roger Federer: “I’m thirilled about playing doubles with Novak tomorrow night. I think I will play the deuce side. Michael Jordan was my hero growing up,so it is great to be in Chicago.”
 
Novak Djokovic: “I watched last year and it looked like a great event. I asked the players about it after and they agreed.”
