Re: so, i mario ancic the biggest chocker of 2005?
Moodie has made a habit of this all week, and I just read the quotes on the ATP site - Ancic said he played brilliantly to get the break back and save the matchpoints, one with an amazingly angled forehand pass. It was always going to be tight with the way that both of them play, I'm just surprised that Moodie made such a poor start on his serve. There's no doubt, however, that Ancic is starting to compete with Nalbandian for the title of Pioline of this generation.

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.
