Re: Thomas Johansson out for four months with eye injury
Ouch, poor guy. The only bright side is that of those four months, two of them will be the claycourt season where he wouldn't have done well anyway. But still, this is a real momentum-stopper after a great 2005, I just hope the long break doesn't end up finishing his career because of the time he'll lose.

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.
