Raí's goal with the chest was against Barcelona actually. That team coached by Telê Santana was probably the last team that achieved success by playing purely offensive football. They were a joy to watch.
Sao Paulo are a multi sporting club aren't they, like those parasites Fluminese? Success does that and lots of fans happen, so they have a lot of support outside the SP province now?

I'd have to ask Gustavo, I imagine Gremio pretty much gets most of the support from the gaucho region and maybe Santa Catarina as well.

Tele Santana, he believed in the jogo bonito for sure.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
