Re: Miami R4: Fedmug chokes again, this time against Berdych 4-6 7-6 6-7
Words can't convey how wonderful it is to stay up till 5am for the second time in as many weeks, to watch Federer waste a matchpoint for the second time in as many weeks, and lose another tight match he should have won for the second time in as many weeks.
At least this time he saved his choking for the two Berdych service games at 5-4 and 6-5 where he was two points from victory, rather than the matchpoint itself.

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.
