Re: Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

At last, some first serves enabled him to hold for the set. Nalbandian winning those last three games from 0-5 shows we're in for a tough second set, though. Whatever happens, Federer's got to avoid a repeat of the US Open - remember when he won the first set 6-3 there, and then inexplicably went on a mental holiday for the next five games?

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: Wednesday Scores

I doubt that this racket is still usable.

Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

It's a perfectly common phrase - would "vacation" make more sense, out of interest?

Federer with a break at the start of the second - if he can hold five times he's home, but these are going to be five of the toughest service games he's ever played... still below 50% first serves!

Re: Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

All right, four of them will be - that was a love game. Please, one more break would be fantastic.

IMO, American loves to use 'vacation' while Brits 'holiday'. May be the same reason for 'pants' and 'trousers'.

Will be this Roger's time to finally get a win against David?

Ah, another break. David is spraying balls he normally wouldn't.
