Re: Anastasia Myskina-Blake
It wouldn't surprise me if this were concocted to try and distract Blake just days before the tie begins - I mean, surely this important question is going to be put to him in a press conference now that he's in Moscow with the rest of the team? Just think, there he'll be on Friday battling hard to try and win his first singles, and Myskina will probably be planted right in his eyeline beside the court visibly pining for him with every gesture and expression....

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.
