Re: Re: when are they making the draw for the AO
This draw is an absolute joke, it can't be a coincidence - and no, I don't mean it's rigged, but fate has definitely done its handiwork. Not only does Federer have his three nemeses in his quarter, but Roddick has the two third-round seeds who are least likely to do anything, El Aynaoui is a physical doubt and Schalken's AO record is terrible. I can just see it now, awaiting those 4th round matches in the hope of a Henman-Federer QF and getting a Nalbandian-Hewitt one instead...

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.
