I do wonder what the hell is up with Henman if he's falling early to the likes of Zib (who gave him a tight match at Wimbledon last year, but that was mostly Henman's doing), but for once I'm not too disappointed. Chances are he'd have had to beat Nalbandian and make the final to gain any more optional points anyway, so he can rest and prepare for IW thoroughly. And Pavel will most likely make the quarters! But Federer had better take advantage of this opening now...

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.
