It was to raise a cheer any time they spied a player hurry across a catwalk between the locker room and the players' dining room. Huge cheers went up for Goran Ivanisevic, Andy Roddick and even for Roddick's coach, Brad Gilbert. After seven hours and several announcements of potential starting times, all play was abandoned due to rain.

Fast food."If you eat those McDonald's cheeseburgers you go to the hospital forever," Ivanisevic said.
