Gratulerer Jonas.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I could see this one coming after the results yesterday, it's a perfect match-up for Bjorkman given the strength of his returns. This will keep him playing in singles for a while longer and get the ranking up again, but Radek... when will the silverware come?

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.

Well done, Jonas! Just when people thought he was done in singles.

It's a good "Fuck you" to the ATP guys for a "doubles specialist"

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

I thought I was going to add Stepanek to my 1st title club this year, but the way it's going, it doesn't seem likely at all.

I think Jonas will be surprised in a way that he won, it was the battle of the ordinary forehands and volleys.

They're very similar players, but Stepanek is perhaps the only player around with a forehand even worse than Bjorkman's. He likes to place the ball and then attack the net, which isn't going to work against a good returner/counterpuncher like Bjorkman.
