Finally, all 4 semifinalists are gone after 3 rounds playing a total of 6 matches among 4 of them.

LOL Lee

Though I must say I'd have rather Andy played Spadea in the 4th round so he could get revenge, I'm glad Escude won

Re: 3 out of 4 semifinalists last year are gone in IW

escude is probably a more dangerous opponent for Andy then Spadea, in terms of gamestyles anyway

I think last week was a bit of a fluke

I've never actually seen Escude play more than a couple points, but sure. If no other reason, the devil you know is better than the devil you don't. And Andy would've been out for a little blood against Vince too, which never hurts the chances of winning But whatever, no matter. I'm so thrilled with how Andy played against Safin that almost anything could happen in the match against Escude and I won't care lol

It should be a good one.

Nicholas better win so I can forgive him for all those missed opportunities in his Aussie Open match last year with Agassi.

Re: 3 out of 4 semifinalists last year are gone in IW

Sorry, Leo, but Escude could bring his "A" game to the court at AO and he'd still lose against Agassi.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Re: 3 out of 4 semifinalists last year are gone in IW

Ah, but have you seen that match tangerine? Escude was completely dictating the play, he was beating Agassi at his own game from the baseline and slamming incredible returns and winners from everywhere, and in the third set at one set all he had almost a dozen chances to go up a break but couldn't take any of them (including a stunning return that Agassi barely scraped into court, but Escude then missed a mid-court sitter). Not to mention that he led 3-1 in the fourth set and then 40-0 on his serve at 4-4 and ended up being broken... that's the Escude mind for you.

Of course, it'll be a very different style against Roddick and there'll be few opportunities to attack his serve, but Escude is always a difficult and unpredictable customer. My main concern is that he'll be tired, he hasn't played much tennis recently and he's won two 7-6 in the third marathons already. But hey, if he's going to thrash Schalken into the bargain, he might as well try and go deep in the draw...

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.

I'm not denying that Escude can beat Agassi, he's just not gonna do it at AO.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ...
