Re: Alexandra Stevenson vs. Vincent Spadea
Yes, I'd go with Spadea - he made the AO QF in 99 by taking out Agassi in the 4th round, and was once ranked as high as 19 in the world; in fact, until Scottsdale this year he was the highest-ranked ATP player never to have won a title I think. Stevenson's been ranked higher, but her period of utter uselessness has surely now lasted as long as Spadea's did without even a trophy to show for it.

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.
