Re: Back from vaccation.
I just hope in future you'll be ending this talk of Federer winning 15 Slams and doing the Grand Slam twice... did you really bet that much money on the match? Foolish, given how close Safin pushed him at the TMC at the end of last year. I seem to recall you saying that Safin's head was going to make him lose the AO match in straights, it didn't quite turn out that way.

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.
