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.

I don't think pull out. It's different circumstances than last year. This year he's in the US, he's fresh (having not played a match in Europe this fall), and he's not concentrated on the #1 ranking.

On night matches, I think greater crowd atmosphere (due to involvement of Americans) + plus cooler, more tolerable playing conditions = better quality matches all round.
It's not the night matches that are an aberration, it's the day matches that are astonishingly bad. In every one of them, at least one player sucked like he's never sucked before, and in the case of Rainer and Coria, they both did. Unusually awful tennis for such a championship. I'm a huge fan of Rainer, and if it wasn't for that, I would have switched off that tv, because that match was unbearable.

True, but he's said himself that the reason why he finds the round-robin format tricky is that he feels that once he loses a match he should be out of the tournament, rather than coming back to play with a second chance to win - hence his reluctance to play meaningless matches and his determination in previous years to go undefeated in the group stage, which has cost him physically in the final (e.g. 1999 and 2000, where he lost in straight sets to players whom he'd beaten easily in the RR).

I think Federer would give it 100% for two reasons: 1) A win this week over Ferrero would certainly help the next time they play, when Federer might have more to gain, and 2) He wants in the hunt for the #2 ranking. Roger says that he doesn't care about the rankings, but I don't buy it.

Ferrero winning 88% of points on first serve and 67% on his second - not bad, really...

Ouch! Agassi broke the racquet against his led quite violently. I didn't see this coming. He only missed one shot in the middle of Ferrero's service game, not the time to be furious.

According to a poster on GM, David also sucked in his day match two days ago. Supposedly he had 19 ufes in that first set but still won it easily!

Don't make this complicated, Juan Carlos, please! I was a bundle of nerves in their last match at the US Open, even when Ferrero had the two set lead.

I also think Roger wants to be #2, but I guess we'll see... I would have loved him to be #1, just like Guga in 2000 when everyone thought he was out of it...

Interesting Layla, it shows that Agassi really is fired-up and intense for this match - and I'm not sure that's helping him, he had the same pumped-up, almost fanatical attitude in the match last year and his performance was so up and down because of it. Ferrero just has to weather the storm.
