Guga leads 3-0 in the fourth now! Well, after a Great Escape in the first round, he seems to be finding his range in this tournament and could be into the AO third round for the first time ver in a half hour.
lol Leo you're right.. after all these years, and even in 2001 when he was #1, he had a match point and still lost... but now he did it! He was more careful than usual, waited for his opportunities and he was patient... Ljubicic served a lot of bombs and attacked a lot today, but he made way too much UFES I guess...
and with Hrbaty winnning as well, it seems thats all the curses are being abandonned
Is nothing sacred???

A big surprise against a big server like Ljubicic, but then this is a week for firsts; Schalken made it to the third round for the first time too, so anything can happen.
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.
I agree they don't tell all. But they're an interesting complement and they help a lot. I'm also happy, but I would like to have a technical analisys of the match.
Anyway, if anybody knows more about it, please, let me know.
Cheers to everyone...
