Re: What do you prefer?
The AO or USO, as I think those are his best chances to win a Slam... mind you, the only opponent I would give him a slim chance of beating in those finals is Coria on clay. He's pushed both Hewitt and Roddick to the limit at their home Slams, and the record against Federer still stands, even though they've yet to play on grass (where I think Nalbandian would still fancy his chances).

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.
