Re: Nalbandian def. Karlovic 6-4 7-6 (7-4)

See Julio, there was no need to panic about Karlo's serve-dominant game ruining tennis, was there? He'll always lose eventually against a quality returner who isn't called Hewitt.

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.

the way he read the serve and went the right way even when he missed the return was very impressive. Hope he can make the final.

Debstah supporting Nalbandian? Is the apocalypse upon us? I suppose it could have something to do with the other great bete noire for Roddick fans, whom Nalby is playing tomorrow

Actually, with those two plus Mr Personality in the other semifinal against Nadal, I guess you're running out of options a little bit.

Re: Nalbandian def. Karlovic 6-4 7-6 (7-4)

Well done David! In an odd way- matches like this can be frustrating for me as a fan of Nalby because I just have to wonder why he isn't like this all/more of the time. When he is on his game it just drives me bonkers that he only has three titles.
