Re: Which thought is more ridiculous?
To be honest, I don't see any way in which Henman can beat Hewitt, and especially not on grass, which is somewhat ironic. Yes, he's the real danger, him and Nalbandian because of the quality of their returns. Federer, Roddick, Ferrero? All very beatable on grass. This is by no means saying he is guaranteed to beat them at Wimbledon, but he has the right game to play all of them on the surface.

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.
