* The Super 9 series officially began in 1990, so here I present the two best records in Canada pre- and post-1990.

** Stockholm was a Super 9/Masters event from 1990-94, but a regular tournament before and since. Becker won in Stockholm in 1990, 91 and 94, but also won a fourth title in 88 when it was a normal ATP event.

*** To my mind this is the most impressive achievement on the whole list - not just because Taroczy won five singles titles in a row, not just because he won six times in seven years, but because for four years running, from 78-81, he also won the doubles event as well. Now THAT is domination.

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.

Taroczy was actually at his best in doubles with the Swiss player Gunthardt, but he loved Hilversum and this is clear to see.

Excelent work.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

I like Roger's chances of winning a 4th straight title in Dubai as well.
