  1. "Ranked 38th in the world to Nadal's second, the 22-year-old Muhammad Ali lookalike will play either two-time defending champion Roger Federer or Serbian third seed Novak Djokovic in Sunday night's final."

    ---I guess he does look a little like Ali.

  6. Intermittingly the entire match I was thinking "What a great scene these two would make" Then I realized he's beating up Rafa in tennis.
