    Julien played very well throughout. He did blink, twice, in getting broken back, but then went after it again.

    Rog was definitely in Shankerer form, which helped.

    He has 7 titles, including a Masters, so I think he's above that status.

    Fed loses to Benneteau and Serena re-ascends to number one. This must may be the worst day in tennis history.

    Funny, it's one of the best for me

    *not the best since Rafa made me suffer with his tentative play.

    Canas beat Fed in consecutive tournaments (Indian Wells and Miami 2007), but also in Toronto back in 2002. Canas actually won that tournament (very impressively, defeating, in order, 10th seed Federer, Srichaphan, 5th seed Kafelnikov,
    2nd seed Safin, 3rd seed Haas and 12th seed Roddick, losing only one set).

    Canas's career record was 252-195. Does being over .500 lift him above journeyman-ness? (Benneteau is below .500.)

    And Benneteau hasn't won a single title in his career.
