Re: Mardy's not playing Rome - he's playing Tunica Challenger instead.
It was ridiculous what Massu was able to get away with in that final; it's not as though he doesn't take his time between points anyway even when he's 100%, but in that match he was sitting down on the line judge's chair after virtually every point and not being picked up on it by the umpire. There is no doubt, though, that Fish's brain became severely scrambled when faced with a fatigued opponent.

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.
