Joy to the scoreboard!

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.

He survived more than anything. I'll give him that shot towards the end of the match. That was just...

If Troicki could have just held his nerve...oh well.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Roddick played Meh but scraped though.

That point in the last game was friggin' awesome though.

Yes, that was a brilliant point by Roddick.

But he played a poor match overall.

Victor got a little bit tight at the end but he played very well. Great tennis. Congrats to Andy and his fans.

Re: R2 : Roddick - Troicki 5:7 6:2 6:4

Troicki was awful when I was watching. What a terrible choke on those break points in the third set, when Roddick hit defensive moonballs on the t-line and Troicki couldn't make the point.

Re: R2 : Roddick - Troicki 5:7 6:2 6:4

Yikes.. Roddick was all serve today, groundstrokes were so un-penetrative..

Great point in the final game though, it will take something amazing to pip that one to ATP POTW.

Unexpected result.

Well done Andy for avoiding yet another 2008 moment.

What a get from Andy at the end there.
He really played like shit the whole match long up until that moment. He was determined to win this match the hard way.
