Quote For The Day

"We have the No. 1 player in the world, Rafael Nadal, and we haven't had that for the last three years since we had Roger Federer. So having Nadal, the Australian Open champion, which is the first time we've had the Australian Open champion since Federer was last here, is great for us. And both Nadal and Andy Murray will be playing singles and doubles so that gives fans more opportunity to see them, which is exciting."--Richard Krajicek, Rotterdam tournament director.

Rafa faces Simone Bolleli in the first round and could face Tomas Berdych in the second in a top-loaded draw.

I wonder if Murray is the favorite?

It's indoor carpet and Rafa has Tsonga on his half. Andy will most likely win the whole thing. He'll be wanting to get the AO out of his system, probably.

Hee. Richard Krajicek - NOT VERY GOOD WITH WORDS, no. But I still feel very sorry for him, because last year he went out of his way to make his top seeds happy and they all dropped like flies in early rounds. Poor guy. :(
