Well esther, it's precisely because Escude has won twice in a row in Rotterdam and is, I believe, on a 14-match winning streak here that I want to see a new winner here - Federer, either Dutchman, even Kafelnikov, would make an interesting change.

I like Escude a lot more than Grosjean, but when you consider what happened to Grosjean last year with him having three match points in the final set and not taking them, revenge would be very sweet indeed.

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 hoping for Ferrero-Grosjean and Schalken-Kafelnikov.

Normally I would go with Roger over Sjeng, but Roger won a title last week and should now spread the joy around a bit.. That and my friend who has decided to desert me all reading week to go to LA, has a big crush on Schalken. So I'm cheering on her behalf

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

In keeping with the last couple days, I imagine that it will sound something like "Just for today, Doris!"

I lack direction.

If I might ask Rebecca, how did your friend develop this crush on Sjeng? I'm not trying to suggest that he is anything less than a hearthrob, naturally, but I wonder where the attraction lies.

I suppose that "because he's such a fine hunk of man meat", wouldn't be the appropriate answer?

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure where it came from. She developed it this summer in Toronto I believe. She must have seen him in the book, or walked by him playing doubles on her way to the bathroom or something, because when he came on for his next singles match she got unusually excited. She whipped out her camera, and started saying things like "gee Becca, I hope that he changes shirts this match! Does he usually do that?" Trust me, I was as baffled as you are.

This fascination continued at the US Open, where she must have shot off about half a dozen photos of Sjeng changing his shirt during his match against Mark. This was one of the rare occasions that we weren't rooting for the same guy.

For some reason or another, she seems to find him incredibley hot. I've stopped bugging her about it, and just go with it. There are far worse things in life, than being dragged to Schalken matches.

I might add that this is vast improvement upon her last tennis crush: Andy Roddick.
