Koubek def. (3)Philippoussis 3-6, 6-1, 6-4

That's really disappointing to see Mark already out in the 1st round... Is he still injured or something?

Got to be, if you're Philippoussis you don't lose 5 service games in a row unless there's something seriously wrong.

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.

Well, Koubek is the defending champion of Doha, so maybe he is making it a habit of playing above his normal level at the beginning of the year!

He has a lot of points to defend there.

I'm sure Mark can still feel positively about Australia. But he probably would have liked more match play this week.

As I said in the scoring thread, I'm pulling for that Koubek-Henman final with Tim making it third time lucky in Doha finals... but that's a long way off.

NICE job, Koubec!

Sorry Flipper!

Tangerine, are you sure you're that happy that Koubek won, rather than Philippoussis lost? Spelling his name right would be a start...

Oh, I like Flipper (that's my pet name for him, btw; it's not meant as an insult!). I'm not rooting "against" anybody (unlike others), I just feel that there are bigger dangers lurking around the corner for my favorite.

And I'm not nearly as happy about him losing as the AR-bashers are angry about Andy winning (see the Qatar thread for examples).

Koubek was #1 in the Champions Race last year for

Guess Mark didn't get his sex game in first.

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
