Re: Wednesday OOP & Scores
Amazing how many people are treating this as a day off. I'm looking forward to the all-Argentine affair in particular - sometimes you think people are exaggerating when they say all claycourters rally endlessly from the baseline, but this could be one match where that theory is proved correct. LOL, I wonder what the French public will make of it all... there's a superb grunting contest in prospect as well.

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.
