Re: Australian Open turning blue!
So in the space of less than three years, we've gone from three green Slams to just one - I suppose that'll do something to maintain Wimbledon's unique qualities. Interesting point about the difference in colour tone between court and the surrounding area, that probably is quite a good idea, although I don't like the look of that blue personally.

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.
