WWW Casablanca F: Wawrinka v Hanescu

I've never done one of these threads before, might as well break my duck with an event as auspicious as this. An interesting battle of the backhands with both men looking for their second career title.

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: WWW Casablanca F: Wawrinka v Hanescu

I have the feeling you like to make these strange random guesses about my favourite players, but yes I don't mind Hanescu. Quality run to the quarters at RG 2005, plus he'll always stick in my mind as Federer's very first opponent as world no. 1.

Re: WWW Casablanca F: Wawrinka v Hanescu

I hope Stan in this final, and then maybe Hanescu on clay.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo
