Hrbaty def. Vanek 6-7, 7-6, 6-1, 6-3

The long AO road has begun again for Domino. Well, jole suggested that this would be a good win in his current form, he has it now so let's see what exploits he gets up to in conditions that he alone seems to relish.

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 guess the TBs are supposed to make up for the lack of a 5th set.

A match with Spadea could take 2 days.

But go Dominik!

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron

LOL At the thread Is it just me who doesn't think this match deserves a thread of it's own Are there any fans of either player?


Please don't tell me every grand slam result gets a thread on this site?

I like starting result threads in the early rounds of Slams, at least it draws people's attention to players they might otherwise have overlooked. People have been good enough to start result threads for Schalken's matches in the past, I might as well repay the compliment.

Sjeng Schalken is a unique character and game I feel (who would deserve some attention), but these two players? Just two painfully boring players.

I guess I have a lot to learn, I might start a few similar ones if people are interested in them.
