Re: Re: Final: Roger v. Carlos
Selling Moya a little short, aren't you TBE? He was only a set away from winning the year-end Championships in Hannover five years ago, so he's obviously got ability indoors and he's been playing well this week. Admittedly Henman helped him by playing like shit at the crucial moments today, judging by the fact that he had huge chances to win both sets, but when you have the top two seeds facing off in a best of five final the chances are it'll be a great match. Which is not to say I hope it is, I would be quite happy if Federer rolled over him like he did in the semis last year, but I can't see that happening somehow...

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.
