Who will hand out/receive first bagel?

federer was the last to give out bagel (not one but two) so who will follow him to hand out the first bagel of 2006? and who will receive?

i think safin, federer, n roddick will hand out some to some unexperienced players in the early rounds of AO...

Justine | Andy | Kim | Paul-Henri | Elena | Richard| Lindsay | Gilles| Tati |Joachim

My guess is that a certain player with a snout and hooves will hand out the first bagel of the year.

Nadal will hand out the first bagel of 2006 in Chennai. Take a look at the entry list and you'll see what I mean.

Since when did Roger Federer have a snout and hooves.

Ron, I must own up to something. You may remember some months ago there was a thread about Rafa’s nickname, where you said you were going to call him Piggy and many people, me including, said it was derogatory and mean. Well, I recently realised that I was being a hypocrite.
I have been a huge ski-jumping fan for years and one of my all-time favourites is Andi Goldberger (now retired). Now before Andi jumped, he used to adjust his crash helmet and make this very funny/cute face, which reminded me of a pig’s snout, so I started calling him Piggy, very affectionately, of course.
It slipped my mind completely at the time of the nickname thread. When the ski-jumping season started last week I remembered this and my first thought was “OMG, I’m no better than Ron!” But on second thought maybe I am slightly better because I love Goldi, so my intentions were pure, so to speak, whereas you have Rafa on your “least favourite players” list.
Anyway, just wanted to say that now I understand better what you meant when you said it was funny.
