Dent had back surgery a few months ago and hasn't recovered yet. There are articles in his forum if you are that interested.

If Dokic didn't win that match she's finished.

Yes, and if he qualifies, we're surely going to get coverage of his match and hear Vijay yak non-stop about his son throughout the day.

Does he ever wax lyrical about that classic cameo in Octopussy? "Cricket, golf, tennis.... I play a bit myself, James!" Genius.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

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.

What a match up. Dokic vs. Stevenson.

Poor Jelena. She used to be annoying, but now she's just so sad.

I was there. She was playing really well, up a set and a break. Served for the match at 5-4 in the 2nd set, and served 3 double faults to get broken. Then in the tie break she was 5-4 up, and served 2 double faults and went on to lose the tie break 7-5. To be fair, the wind was swirling but it was pretty horrendous. She pretty much tanked the third.
