Any Uruguayans here?

Some dude named Pablo Cuevas made the MD. I've never heard of him. Is his the first Uraguayan to enter the US Open?

No, before Cuevas there were Filippini, Perez and Damiani.

Congrats to Pablo, it's good to see the Uruguayans have a top 100 prospect again after all this time.

Re: Any Uruguayans here?

Funny, I was just watching Battle of the River Plate on TV this evening.

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.
