Re: Is Federer playign Monte Carlo

Touch wood, I believe he is, as the report yesterday was subsequently identified as a translation error. He did say in his speech today after the match that it had given him confidence for "Monaco and the rest of the clay season", so he seems intent on playing it.

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.

Re: Is Federer playign Monte Carlo



There was huge thread yesterday about a hoax (a translation error by the Italian Eurosport website that said Federer would be out). If you looked further down the page you will find it.

So the answer is that he is playing unless something new comes up.

Of course he is. Being 'out for the title', doesn't means he's OUT. Quite the contrary, really.

I looked before I posted this. I really didn't know. I wasn't doing it to be a pest.
