"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

NADAL: "ONE OF MY BEST MATCHES ON CLAY THIS YEAR"
No1 seed Rafael Nadal described himself as "very very happy" after dropping only one game on the way to defeating Robin Soderling 6-0,6-1 in the third round on Thursday.

"I think the match was really tough," said Nadal, who once again underlined his seeming invincibility on clay. "Not the result, but the match. At the beginning I was winning 4-1, but at the same time I could be losing 4-1. I think I played really well - one of my best matches on clay this year. I'm playing at the very good level today, so I'm very happy. Very happy about my level today, and very happy about this victory."

Friday will see Nadal face Fernando Verdasco in a re-match of this year's Australian Open semi-final, which the Majorcan won in five sets on the way to his first Grand Slam title on hard courts. "I think could be a really tough match," said Nadal of his quarter-final. "Sure going to be a really tough match. I was close to losing in Australia - it was really emotional match. I'm going to try to play my game tomorrow, try to play aggressive and play like today. He has a very good forehand, good serve, and here the ball has good topspin and that can help him. But if I am playing my best, I hope I'll have my chances for victory. I'm going try to play aggressive, and we will see."

Oh come on. In any case you could have changed your prediction before Rafa's first match.

I was probably laughing thinking about that Federer backhand fail video at that moment.
