Re: MC '06: Federer v/s Ferrer - who will win?
This is going to be a really tough test, and that's where Federer's 46 and 55-minute workouts in the last two rounds won't necessarily be great preparation. By contrast Ferrer can seemingly never win matches if they're not epic battles, physically he'll be fine for tomorrow I predict. He defends incredibly well but can also outmaneouvre his opponent and then go on the attack, as shown today by him smashing 32 winners past Ferrero. I have a nasty feeling the errors will be flowing from Federer's racket before long.... serving well, and staying in control of the rallies will be critical.

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.
