Fed looked VERY rusty yesterday, although his post-match comments re Niemeyer were quite classy and appreciated by the local crowd.
Djokovic looked extremely tentative in his match. He really needs to get his heart back in the game.

The 26-year-old Clijsters is scheduled to meet sixth-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova in the next round, with a possible quarterfinal match looming against top-seeded Dinara Safina.

This will be fun.

Well, the ATP has now been likened to ER. Ferrer retires. Hass retires. I wonder what will happen tomorrow. At least the women will finally get their day in the sun (or is it on the silver screen).
