Does anybody remember Fed reaching RG QF's in 2001 ?

It was his first GS QF, i think..and then it was Wimby's round 4 against Pete...old times...

Here are the scores:

Roland Garros, France
Grand Slam, 28-May-01, O, Clay , Draw: 128

R128 Galvani, Stefano (ITA) 6-3 6-3 6-3
R64 Sargsian, Sargis (ARM) 4-6 3-6 6-2 6-4 9-7
R32 Sanchez, David (ESP) 6-4 6-3 1-6 6-3
R16 Arthurs, Wayne (AUS) 3-6 6-3 6-4 6-2
Q Corretja, Alex (ESP) 5-7 4-6 5-7

I'd really love to see the match against Sargsian...anybody knows a source ?

He was 0-2 in sets against Sargisian and won this one, maybe with saving matchpoints. Talking about mental weakness of Federer...

cakewalk draw. Djokovic would be proud.

very easy draw, easier than Gulbis draw. and lost a set against Arthurs :tape: but against Corretja his performance was ok.

That was the tournament where Arthurs beat Rafter from two sets down in the first round, he wasn't that bad on clay as the surface gave his wristy groundstrokes a little more time.

absolutely! my fave Spaniard Corretja beat the young, goofy Rogi in the QF... I was happy for Alex but definitely took notice of Rogi ;)

:wavey: sjengst!
