Judging by the way he won it last year, I don't think he needs any luck - he seems fated to win no matter who he plays.

He beat Robredo 1 and 2, but check out these scores from his other matches and see the similarity:

d. Ferrero 5/7 6/1 6/0
d. Federer 3/6 7/6 7/5
d. Grosjean 4/6 7/6 7/5 (was down 4/5 0-40 in the last set and saved three consecutive match points)
d. Henman (grrr) 3/6 7/6 6/4

I'm telling you, he is destined to keep up his winning streak there; and if he plays Federer and Henman again, both of whom he's beaten in the last two years there, I should say he's a surefire bet.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

I'm a bit worried about Nico's thigh injury in Marseille. Hopeefully he'll do well there despite it and then has a superb week in Rotterdam!

hmm...tantalising... I didn't know Escude won Rotterdam the previous 2 yrs.... well....it all depends on the draw.... who knows he might end up meeting some1 like Hrbaty or Ljubicic in the first round and get knocked out......who won't be seated I dun think...

Come on Paradorn. Pick up your game. You can play better. You know you can. You can do it!

Unhappy

poor Nico.... he had to retire again against Seb... he would have no doubt won this tourney if he had been 100% (he said that he had played 50-60% this week)

becos tennis is not just about hitting the ball...it's having the confidence to hit it well... as i have re-iterated so often... professional tennis is 20% physical 80% mental...

Come on Paradorn. Pick up your game. You can play better. You know you can. You can do it!
