Impressive stuff, considering there was a doubt he would even be able to play - not a breakpoint faced in the second set, solid serving and good aggression off the second shot. Tojo did look down on himself as he so often is when he's losing, but still a quality performance. Nice to see such a good reception from the crowd at the end too, perhaps he's more appreciated here with so many other big names having pulled out.

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.
