Reister def. Rochus 6-2, 6-2, 7-6

He'll have the advantage of surprise against Federer in the third round, that's for sure.

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.

I guess he will be suprised by playing on Philippe Chatrier court, that's for sure.

Who knows, this one could be on Lenglen, bearing in mind there are other third-rounders like Murray v Baghdatis and Monfils v Wawrinka in the offing.

Re: Reister def. Rochus 6-2, 6-2, 7-6

Can someone describe how Reister looks and his style of play? Like most, I have never seen the guy.

Is there any way he could give Fed trouble (especially as Fed has probably never seen him before)? Could he take a set?

Well, he's already upset two 'decent' players (take that for what it's worth ), and Feds has this habit of struggling against players he doesn't know/hasn't played against before. Anyone remembers Tokyo 2007?

Thanks.

I see this is being discussed in the "Fed vs. Resister" thread.

Imagine how exciting it must be for this kid. Made it through qualies, gets 2 nice wins at a slam, and then gets to play Fed. He must be on top of the world right now. Great to see.

Oli didn't want to play Fed, obviously.

Even more exciting then. He has (probably) been laboring on the challenger circuit for a while and appreciates how sweet this is.

Re: Reister def. Rochus 6-2, 6-2, 7-6

Never won an ATP level match before this tournament (0-3).

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

More likely he's the only idiot who wants to be squashed by Fed on the center court. His playing activity is beyond pathetic even on a CH level. Reister is 0-3 on ATP level being 24 and played only 3 ATP matches and losing all of them

Then how come he managed to beat Flopez and Ollie in a row? Do you think both of them tanked?
Dunno why, but I don't think Fed will 'squash' him.
