Re: The "King of Clay Back To Rule The Millionaire's Playground" Monte-Carlo Thread

If he can't beat Karlovic on clay there are serious problems, but Novak in the second round would be very tough - he has beaten Ferrero in his prime on clay, when he won Gstaad back in 2001. Novak is of course the man who managed to lose to Dent (??!!) in the first round here last year, but he should beat Mirnyi in his opener. Still, every extra win is gravy for Ferrero in the rankings after his barren spell last year.

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.
