nice title

congrats Rafa

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)

From 46 to 7 in the space of three months... I see a little of 2003 Coria in Nadal, only more so.

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.

Re: The Kid beats the King 6-1 7-6(4) 6-4 to win Barcelona

BTW, is Ferrero "back to his best"? Clearly he's at a higher level now than he was for the whole of last year, but would a peak 2003 Ferrero have been clocked on clay by Coria and Nadal in successive weeks? I'm speculating here, I don't have a definite opinion either way, but I have a nasty feeling that Ferrero against claycourt rivals he used to dominate could become like Hewitt against 2004/05 Federer; in other words, still playing at the same level, but the opposition has improved so much that the results begin to change.
