Oh come on, they're hardly showcasing the likes of Spadea and Gimelstob, are they? Dent is always entertaining to watch because, like Mirnyi, he is one of the pure hustlers left in tennis, always trying to find a way into the net with variable results. I reckon he could have a very interesting match-up with the likes of Grosjean, El Aynaoui, Federer... Nalbandian and Agassi would pick him off comfortably though. Ginepri's game does appear to be Roddick-lite at times, but after seeing him play at IW and Miami last year I would certainly watch him again.

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.
