Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

A Nalbandian double fault gifts Federer the double break - hopefully he can wrap this set up now.

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.

Re: Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

Federer has to raise his serve percentage though - only 42% won't get the job done.

Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

Thank goodness, an ace at last. But that game showed why Nalbandian is such a danger, Federer will have to remain strong on serve for the second set because the Great Dave will only start playing better.

Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

GoDom, at the moment I'm very happy that this particular match is sucking. I suspect Nalbandian may well raise his game from now on, though...

Re: Wednesday Scores

One break back as Roger can't get first serves in.

It's interesting: Once they are both hitting hard from the baseline David is guaranteed to win the point.

Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

Not a surprise, now you can see why Federer needed that double break. He can't win by just blasting the Band off the court, he has to slice and dice, mix up the pace, force Nalbandian to think about his tactics - he loves slamming winners off Federer's big shots.
