Flunky Flo saves the day, def. Srichaphan 3-6, 7-6, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3

A remarkable effort considering that he failed to break serve until the start of the fourth set. Well done, unorthodox one!

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.

Paradorn just can't be trusted on clay. Nice way to cancel out his teammate's stupendous effort.

Nice going though. A doubles win + Udomchoke winning against Mayer (not impossible at all) may give the victory to Thailand.
By the way, it would make Germany the biggest joke of this weekend.

Tie's over now. The last two rubbers were gimmes for Germany and this one has wrapped it up.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Doubles win for Thailand?

Waske/Kohlmann are much better doubles players than Ratiwatanas and they are solid players. I don't think Germany will lose the doubles.

Neither do I, I'm not so sure about Tommy beating Srichapan. Tommy looked awful today, he started cramping after 2 sets! Something can't be right with him

I'm not 100% sure, but I counted three Paradorn Wins on clay in hes whole career. Mayer just had to win this one... and he did. Unlike wannabe star Haas he did handle the pressure in the end.

Go Flo

1st, Waske playing singles is not the same Waske playing doubles.

2nd, Waske playing DC is not the same Waske playing ATP tournaments.

The amazing thing is that Paradorn led 2 sets to 1 at one point. I mean, on clay, really regardless of opponent... .

Paradorn won eight more points total than Mayer in the entire match. That's kinda surprising, considering the score line wasn't like 0-6, 7-6, 0-6, 6-2, 6-3.
