Putting Starace and Soderling on the second court over Gaudio and Acasuso is an absolute disgrace. I know that the crowd support from across the border does play a part for Italian players in Monte Carlo, the crowds are always vocal at their matches, but as much as I love Potato Starchy I don't think he or his opponent are illustrious enough to deserve Court des Princes.
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.
