Re: MC first round Gaudio vs Henman who will win?
What a dreadful draw (says me, the only Henman/Gaudio fan on the board, I should imagine). Well, I hope the winner can go far, although in Henman's case I see Acasuso or Volandri ending his challenge in the second round anyway. It will be interesting to see whether his rushing style still gives Gaudio fits so longer after their last encounter, and even longer after their claycourt meetings.

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.
