At last, Henman has a winnable first round against Savolt... although I see Ljubicic potentially waits in the wings in the next round.
The Sjengster will have his work cut out against Youzhny, that's for sure, it'll be a fine exhibition of stylish single-handed backhands. Good luck to Schuettler, making his comeback after several weeks out, and I'm going to support Koubek in his first round against the defending champion, even though I reckon Santoro is going to get tons of unforced errors out of him simply by the way he plays...
And Goran - welcome back, it's been too long!

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.
