wow a half decent draw

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

If he can't beat Karlovic on clay there are serious problems, but Novak in the second round would be very tough - he has beaten Ferrero in his prime on clay, when he won Gstaad back in 2001. Novak is of course the man who managed to lose to Dent (??!!) in the first round here last year, but he should beat Mirnyi in his opener. Still, every extra win is gravy for Ferrero in the rankings after his barren spell last year.

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.

yeah, I mean if he wont beat Karlovic surely it's serious so I tend to think its not that serious and he'll make it....and if its Novak which is likely, its gonna be tougher, but if JC is up for it he shud be able to fight thru it, he really needs to get it going.

it won't be easy...though it might have come much worse...no rafa in the first round

why is it easier to hurt someone with words than with deeds?

yeah what he said.

This draw is good i think, not insanely hard but no stroll, but what AMS draw is right? Karlovic, i agree, on clay should be no problem to a player of JC's claycourt ability. Novak is dangerous and really unpredictable, who knows what this will throw up? And losing to Dent here last year is a testament to that.
But its good overall, i like the look of it

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

If he doesn't beat Karlovic I dunno what I'll do. Cry probably

Novak is going to be difficult.

Not a bad draw... but karlovic has a good serve and JC doesn't tend to do so well against the big servers. JC needs to improve on the form he had last week against Nadal to have any chance going through a couple of rounds. I just hope he betters his Miami performance b/c that would give him alot of confidence.

big serve on clay won't be fast as on hard,so i think JC has chance to beat the big guy.but Novak...that match will be difficult to JC.and 3rd round,safin?i don't know...
