Re: Possible rematch btw Ginepri and Roddick in US Open 2nd round.
Ginepri needs the draw gods of 2003 back, when he drew Frog Ferrer in the opening round. Other than that, this is how his record with draws in New York goes:
2001 - 2nd round loss to Federer
2002 - 1st round loss to Agassi
2004 - 1st round loss to Agassi
2005 - 2nd round loss to Roddick (I'm guessing)

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.
