Not really.

Umag is great, the beach, plenty of parties no matches starting before 4pm.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Which tournament is the 'fifth slam'?

Indian Wells is referred to as the 5th slam and when I Google "tennis 5th slam", Indian Wells is the first result.

I think we have a winner

The term is as legit as pro wrestling. Indian Wells and Miami used to be 128 draws under the joke that they were the 5th Slam.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Abu Dhabi of course. (But yes, seriously it's the world toast finals)

IW.

Probably the most exclusive "winner's club" of all of the 1000s.

Nadal - Blake - Dimitrov - Del Potro - Isner - Fish - Haase
