At the end of the 1990s, Flamengo and Vasco tried to be multi-sporting powerhouses but after a couple of years they couldn't pay their non-football athletes' salaries anymore.

Sao Paulo has lots of supporters in the countryside of the Paraná state. Though in the Northern states, support still goes mainly to the teams from Rio (Flamengo, Fluminense, Vasco...).
That makes sense the amount of cash isn't generated to run them profitably, well corrupt directors don't help either.

Flamengo fans seem to be everywhere.

One thing whenever I see riots on TV, there is usually someone with a Man U shirt, that has to be a coincidence.

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
