Re: Losing streaks vs Federer
Nothing lasts forever. Moreover, Federer's obituary has been written twice in the last couple of years, and both times it was premature, so I'm not ready to leap off the cliff just yet. Those players you mention are too good not to get another win over Federer eventually, if Benneteau and Montanes are also capable of doing it.

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.
