    Saw Pete play Todd Martin in Jacksonville on the 8th. Looked like he was just getting the rust off to get ready for tonight's match. I know he had another match with Todd in C-Bus prior to tonight. Figure he was going for the 2 match warm-up prior to meeting "The Big Fed". Question: Pete played in Jax with a "blacked out" version of the nCode Tour 90 (Previous racket of Federer). Any guess out there as to why??? And is he using this "blacked out" racket tonight?....Oh, before I forget...Go Pete!!!

    Roger is the more well-rounded talent. He may not show it in these matches because he is still an active player unlike Pete, with alot to lose should he push himself to the max or injure himself. It wouldn't be worth it for him. They are both great. But Roger is more talented and more entertaining to watch - the likes of which we will likely never see again.

    Seriously do we really think that Fed is giving it his all i dont! Thats why its an exhibition match its for entertainment only, pete is no match for roger when its really on the line. and anyone who thinks that sampras has still got it is smokin some serious skunky weed!! you will see roger dominate once and for all tonight!
