YEEESSS!!! To anticipate Federer's paraphrasing of Gerulaitis in the interview, no-one beats Roger Federer 6 times in a row! And a bagel, what a brilliant way to do it... I suspect that Nalbandian was heavily off his game with the wrist injury, but still, it's worth updating Love's thread in GM just to let him/her (?) know that domination can't last forever.
Amazing, with Federer's attitude going into the Masters Cup and drawn with his two nemeses, I never would have thought he'd choose the perfect moment to beat them both for the first time. Now beat Ferrero tomorrow and you can keep your perfect group record from last year!

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.
