She could probably do at least as good a job as some who are fulfilling the role at present.

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.

*dies* I'm one minute into the first clip, and I just have to say that when she informs us that Agassi announced his impending retirement at Wimbledon and the picture cuts to a fan holding a sign that reads "Thanks Andre", it looks like they're thanking him for retiring at last.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

Re: Should this woman be providing detailed Grand Slam commentary for network TV?

Her wish to apply behaviour in tennis to how she approaches life is admirable, I suppose, but I must admit my attitude to life more resembles Novak's demeanour than Nadal's.
