Federer doesn't normally win early round matches 0 and 1 at the best of times. Have to say good OOP tomorrow and players I like, too bad it will be delayed here cause of a stupid cricket match.
I will be writing reports on the blog, easier that way. This field has a distinct lack of claycourt clowns apart from the Srich, Bracciali and Rusedski which is a good thing, though Ivo would like to play at altitude.
