Chela confirms his form coming from the title in Acapulco, good for him for making use of his opportunities to get to the semis. As for Michael, he will be totally forgotten, it is taken as a failure for the guy to lose against Chela without anybody thinking of where he was last year and what a success it was to come as far as he has until now.

Isn't that an 8-match winning streak now for Chela after the Acapulco title? It must be a career best.
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.
