Re: Thursday order of play
Interesting that they're putting Roddick on first, I thought they'd hold him back for later even if they are both afternoon matches. I suppose they don't want to make them play night matches given that they have to come back on Friday without a day off.
Anyhoo, go Rainer! Go... yeah, Coria probably. I don't know really, given his bad health and Moya's close 3-setter, Moya should be favourite - after all, he does have the winning record and they're 1-1 in meetings this 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.
