Re: Who is the biggest tennis fanatic?
I'm pretty sure George isn't fanatical about anything, including tennis. Yashirobai is a Spanish tennis fanatic, nothing more. And as for tangerine and star, well, we know there's only one player who they're both completely fanatical over, but what did Nalbandian do to deserve their obsessive attentions?

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.
