Re: Volandri def. Massu 6-3 6-0
I was probably no. 1 Massu hater on the board last year when his entry to the Top 10 was imminent but forever being delayed for one reason or another. But I don't think I dislike him as much nowadays, if only because he's returned to the pack and has had to suffer through various injury problems. Hey, I was even rooting for him against Coria at the US Open - but then, the list of people I will support when playing Coria is growing ever longer with each tournament.

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.
