You're right Leo, if he turns up to the AO wearing that monstrosity I may have to reconsider supporting him... actually I wouldn't go that far, but making yourself look a bit of an idiot isn't a good idea when you're challenging for the no. 1 spot. Also, I'm not that surprised that Federer and Navratilova lost - from the sounds of it Dementieva sensibly drilled her shots at Federer when he was at the net and he couldn't handle it, and I wonder whether the two of them match up temperament-wise; Martina N would seem to be a fairly bossy and overbearing character whereas I'm not sure Federer is.

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.
