Re: Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

Not a huge surprise though Layla, same thing happened at the US Open. It certainly is a surprise if Ferrero was playing as badly as you say he was against Nalbandian, but hey... either the rhythm of Agassi suits him (Andre not as fast or as good in defence as Dave), or else he's realised how much he wants the top spot. The fact that it's being played in cooler conditions at night might help him too...

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.

He was, believe me he was. He even said it himself in the post-match interview. He said he hadn't played like that all year. His assessment was the same as mine then.

Have you noticed that all the day matches were pretty awful, ranging from the excruciatingly boring to the mildly interesting, whereas the night matches have been great so far.

Re: Wednesday Scores

I'm afraid to follow scores. Could he repeat his miserable performance against Nalbandian? Even if he wins tonight, I doubt that he'll defeat a confident federer in the next RR match. Oh well, he screwed himself.

Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

Ah, come on Leo. As a Federer fan I'm getting worried that if Ferrero is suddenly beating Agassi this comfortably he could run straight through Federer, who doesn't have to beat him to make the semis so may not give 100%. Personally I hope he does since that would put him in the hunt for no. 2, but hey... we can agree to disagree on that.

On night matches, I think greater crowd atmosphere (due to involvement of Americans) + plus cooler, more tolerable playing conditions = better quality matches all round.
