Zosse--I tried to find an article about it, but I couldn't So I'm just as clueless as the rest of you

Nacho, since he's second alternate, I think he chances of playing are slim to none.

Andy rejected the spot, This means that Tommy Haas, David Nalbandian, Guillermo Canas and Sebastian Grosjean also turned down the honor, before Gonzo accepted..so I think it is a smart move, people do have lifes..

I don't care why, how, when, anyway, what I care is about Fernando, if he plays I guess it'll be a good experience after all for him; although I don't think he'll have the chance to play at this Masters Cup.

Anyway, go Fernando!

it's quite an honor for him. and who knows, the Potato just might break a leg...

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
