The Dude Sela def. Lapentti 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, 6-3

Quite a crushing performance in the last three sets, it would seem.

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.

Dudi finally found his form
He's got a good chance in the 2nd round too, hope he won't miss it.

I hope to catch highlights, I was following the game online....

Some of his qualifying games as well...

First year in the US Open (I think he tried to qualify before but didn't make it).

Good luck, I hope he gets more wins

Yes, it was this year, he was two points from victory in the fourth set when a rain delay ruined his chances.

DUDI!!!!!!!!!!!

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Such a great performance from him. Go Dudi! It's about time, you have talent.

Yes, the Safin match was painful, I don't want to think about it.
