A love hold for 5-0. Moodie is up 7-6, 4-2*, but has fewer aces than Vanek - I thought he was supposed to be a big server? The Raccoon leads 2-1 on serve.

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.

You're right TBE, Kiefer has officially folded. Two matchpoints to Draper for a bagel final set... and he takes one.

S. Draper def. N. Kiefer 5-7, 7-6 (7), 6-0 - come to think of it, Kiefer actually had five matchpoints, as he had one more at 6-5 on Draper's serve in the second set. What a disastrous collapse... could have done with defending that result from last year. Still, Schalken is supposed to play a qualifier in the first round, and given his record against Kiefer I'm glad it won't be him...

W. Moodie def. J. Vanek 7-6 (2), 6-4. The final ace tally was 2-1 in Vanek's favour - weird. After all, this guy Moodie is 6'5" and has done absolutely nothing outside British challenger events and Wimbledon, so he must have a big grass-court game.

Noam 5-4* after he almost threw the game away

This score is too good to be true. I'm waiting for a small dwarf to turn it upside down.
