Re: Koubek def Baghdatis 1-6 7-6(3) 6-2
Special K!!! Indoor points are keeping this man alive at the moment, what with his final in Zagreb earlier this year. When was the last time the crowd had two Austrians to cheer for in the quarters? Hopefully one can go a little further.
I do hope Baghdatis can bring it to the big tournaments, though.

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.
