Wednesday Scores

Well, almost time!

Dunno who to root for, Fed or Nalby... and I can only stay for like the first half-hour of the match


And it is another BRUTAL day here in Houston... just like yesterday. Hopefully they'll be able to deal with it better than Coria and Schuettler did

Norm Christ just told them that they will have TV time-outs.

Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

Scoreboard hasn't started AGAIN, I see...

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 with an immediate break - but Nalbandian is going to start threatening his serve sooner or later, he's a good enough returner to break at will.

Re: Wednesday Scores

Eurosport commentators talking about a slope in the field... really of any significance?
Federer confirms the break, got confidence Roger?

Re: Re: Wednesday Scores

3-0 - let's just hope it lasts. If he's going to win, Federer has to adopt that Hewitt/Agassi mentality of making the opponent earn every game and trying to beat them as convincingly as possible. The one break per set Sampras philosophy that normally works for him isn't going to do so against Nalbandian since his serve is going to be under pressure all the time.
