Yes. I dont understand him,he goes where all the good clay courters and Federer are,and doesnt want to defend his title here.

Anyway King Oscar should win this.

No Mattress Mac, no Andy R. Hmm.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Yes, Roddick not playing here is surprising. So will we see him in Monte Carlo this year then?

Not a bad list actually.

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

Pete has to do well here, he could almost be seeded if he gets lucky from now and onwards.
