Question now that the Potato's woman just won the year end tourny in LA...

...will he be inspired to do the same thing in Shanghai?

will they celebrate by holding their trophies aloft, together, in some kind of romantic side-by-side gesture as they lock lips and gaze into each other's eyes?

or will Marat, Moya, and hopefully Agassi succeed in spoiling the party?

i don't mind it that Kim won in LA. in fact i'm quite happy for her. but if she inspires the Potato to do likewise, i will be most unhappy. any decent boyfriend would allow the woman her space and glory and not try to crowd it with an honor of his own...

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)

Hewitt and Moya Show Mettle in Shanghai

Reuters
Tuesday, November 12, 2002; 9:07 AM

By Ossian Shine

SHANGHAI, China (Reuters) - A little cranky, a little out of sorts and a little slow out of the blocks, Lleyton Hewitt again fell back on his incandescent desire to win to beat Albert Costa at the Tennis Masters Cup and tighten his grip on the world number one ranking Tuesday.

It is a will to win which enabled him to become the youngest year-end world number one this time last year. It is a will to win which has already bagged him U.S. Open and Wimbledon crowns at the age of 21 and it is a will to win which is keeping him hovering above a sea of tennis talent.

Tuesday Hewitt scrapped, gouged and clawed his way past the French Open champion 6-2 4-6 6-3 to earn 20 ranking points.

The Australian knows only too well how precious those points could prove to be -- he himself overhauled a world number one, Gustavo Kuerten, to steal the year-end honor in the final week of the season last year.

This time round he is the hunted. Andre Agassi now trails him by 108 points and with a maximum 150 points available to the winner here, the seasoned American has Hewitt locked in his sights.

But nobody on the Tour fights harder than Hewitt and his will was on full display for the appreciative Chinese fans at the New Shanghai International Expo Center.

DOGGED FIGHTBACK

A straightforward opening set put Hewitt on his way but a dogged fightback by wily baseliner Costa tested the Australian's mettle.

It was not found wanting as he motored round the court looping forehands for winners and shovelling double-handed backhands in to the corners.

Hewitt was a blur on the distinctive blue Masters Cup court as he forced Costa on to the back foot and clinched a hard-fought victory.

Earlier Spain's Carlos Moya picked up a cool $120,000 for 98 minutes work, beating a tired Marat Safin 6-4 7-5 in the opening match of the $3.7 million extravaganza.

The Spanish former world number one withstood an early barrage of Russian power to secure victory.

Fatigue, both mental and physical, got the better of Safin who still has a Davis Cup final ahead of him later this month when Russia take on France.

"It is a long season. A really long season for me and it is tough," he said. "You know it could go either way and this time he won. What can I say? That is life."

Early in the match the Russian's immense power and sheer size left the contest resembling one of China's great sporting passions -- table tennis -- as he flicked balls away for winner after winner.

But Moya held on, his green shirt slowly darkening under the strain of his exertions as he chased down Safin's pummelled groundstrokes and in the end did enough to win.

"I was able to return his serve and I put him under a lot of pressure. I think that was the difference," Moya said.

A third Spaniard, Juan Carlos Ferrero completes the action on the opening day when he meets Swiss Roger Federer in the night match.

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.

God save us from that
I hope that anyone could spoil all that to those 2 that I hate!
Of course, I specially wanna see Marat spoiling everything to Hewitt and his piggy girlfriend.

Yes, I compare her with a pig. Can't you see her face? Her face in general(look her nose) looks like the one of a pig. And did anybody notice that she has terrible acne problems?
