Very overrated ,I agree

Plus, I don´t know why Verdasco is member of the Davis Cup Team

And thus concludes the mass exodus of the Spaniards today.

*sigh* Oh well...on to NY.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

I was just going to mention that - brilliant that Fat Irakli the legend has that achievement all to himself, more than once too (Memphis 03 and IW 04).

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

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.

Nice win for James after such a lacklustre start against Calleri earlier today.

Yet I wish he'd lose already and get some rest; everybody else is losing
