Re: What do you think "Super Saturday" or "Stupid Saturday"?
Grand Slam finals are possibly the 4 most important tennis matches of the year, it's ridiculous not to give both players the best possible opportunity to be prepared for them. Agassi most certainly did not handle having to play the whole weekend the last two times he was in the final, did he? It's absurd. One of the first things that should go under De Villiers' Reign of Retail, but that would be too sensible.

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.
