What 2005 Slam are you most looking forward to

For me it would definitely be the French. Last years French was so wonderful and full of surprises. Who would have thought that Gaudio & Myskina would be the champions of this tournament. I also like how the French is rarely dominated by a particular player. Variety is the spice of life. Plus it doesn't hurt that the americans suck on clay. This way we get a grand slam that actually shows players from countries other than America. French Open is the time non fans of Federer and Roddick can sit back an enjoy seeing everything the ATP tour has to offer. Viva La France...

Definitely the French Open. Hopefully, Gaudio will amaze us with another wonderful championship match again.

Re: What 2005 Slam are you most looking forward to

Definitely the French Open.
Clay is just the best surface and I am so much looking forward to see Gaston defending his title (okay, maybe a bit too optimistic)

Tommy Robredo David Ferrer Pere Riba Fernando Verdasco

Pico Monaco ~ Edu Schwank ~ Stan Wawrinka ~ Dani Gimeno ~ David Marrero ~ Marc Lopez ~ Marco Chiudinelli ~ Marcel Granollers

I miss you on tour, Nors, Bjösse, Simon & Pim Pim

Re: What 2005 Slam are you most looking forward to

Wimbledon! Andy/Roger rematch please

and USO. Always one of the most fun to watch and I'm probably going this year too.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: What 2005 Slam are you most looking forward to

I always look forward to all of them, but especially the RG/Wimbledon combination because the middle of the year is a tennis feast on TV - of course, I could happily sacrifice a few weeks in the middle if it meant a longer gap between the two Slams which is necessary for the game, but from Rome onwards we get nine straight weeks of televised tennis that includes two TMS events, two Slams and a change of surface. All of which is not bad at all.

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.
