E.g. Nalbandian the Andean, who I believe has Armenian ancestry - that's why it was interesting to see him getting thrashed by Sargsian in the first round of the US Open back in 2002. The equivalent of, I don't know, Simon Larose hammering Rusedski off the court in New York... not very likely, that one.

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.
Maxima, the stepdaughter of our queen, is from Argentina?! Weird question, if you ask me...
I don't like Argentine players, because of their nationality. I like Nalbandian for instance, but I highly dislike Coria. It depends on the player.. not on the nation!
I don't like them because they're doped, and because of their game.
But I like much better the football players
