It's what, 3.30 am over here? Late, but really the USO is nowhere near the killer that the AO is - that's just as tough in Europe as it is in America.

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.

Only Robredo. Perhaps too much sangria?

Gulbis is quite sober.

I support: Roger Federer; Richard Gasquet; Radek Stepanek; Mario Ancic; Robin Haase; because they are cool.

I also support: The Killers; Death Cab for Cutie; My Chemical Romance; The Smashing Pumpkins; Radiohead; because they are pretty cool, as well.

Re: Robredo and Gulbis must be pissed

The Australian is much worse, for me - the day session going on right through the night.

I don't mind missing the occasional night session at the US Open and I can get by.

The aussie is hideous, if you sleep all night you miss an absolute ton of action.

The AO is a lot better, cause I am at the event and not logged onto MTF and I can get to see the good matches instead of the shit the TV networks want to throw at me.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

What's worst about it is that the majority of the action with good early round contests takes place during the night for the first week, then all the big matches are the night sessions in the second week so you have to make a very quick adjustment.

But still, as Aussie posters would understandably reply regarding the rest of the year, "Welcome to our world", so I won't complain.

Okay, I was trying to be subtle Mr 'Someplace sandy'. I thought you were studying abroad lately...

I guess the AO is equally brutal for the UK as well, I never thought about that one (duh on me).

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.

Ah, I see. No, that's merely an allusion to my country flag here on MTF, that is to say if I were Djiboutian I would be somewhere fairly sandy. Actually, the beach here in my town is pebble, hence my preference in my Mister MTF profile for short walks along the beach.

Totally - the rest of the year is pretty good - or at least bearable - so I'm not complaining at all.

Hmmm, a pebbly beach. The clues are there... I'll figure it out eventually. mwa ha ha

Well I've mentioned it on here already, just go to the Gaudio forum and search for the thread about where everyone is from, I posted photos in there as well.

Yeah, the AO is the tough slam for me, schedule wise.

That's no fun, you ruined my guessing game (although you are less of an enigma since the Mr MTF thingie).
