Re: Stepanek def. Henman 6-7,7-6,6-1
When he got broken a second time I had the feeling just from following the score that as a 31-year old he wanted to get some kip, I can't really blame him. Has there been another match in recent years that's finished this late? I know Nalbandian v Coria at this year's AO ended up finishing after 2am due to previous matches overrunning, but I can't imagine many people stayed around for this one as a few did in Australia.
Well done Tim, you're in serious trouble now that you can't even beat Sexy Radek.

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.
