F. Serra makes chipolata out of Cipolla, 6-1, 6-1

Could be an interesting match against Davydenko, only 1 encounter on clay last year and Serra won by the same scoreline as he did here after losing the first set 6-4.

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.

Very impressive stats!
Did anyone see the match and can tell me how well Serra played?

Right now Denko is having more trouble with Ciquel than I expected... lost the second set.
This could indeed get interesting.

Kolya broke and leads 2:1 decisive set

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

Cipolla is complete shit though, his reaching the QF against injured donkeys was one of the biggest flukes in ATP history. I don't think Serra is a world-beater at the moment.

Yes, I know, I know.... it was a feeble gag made by a BBC commentator during Nadal's match with Cipolla at last year's RG, I resurrected it.
