It is part of the charm of any sport that a contest apparently heading in only one direction can suddenly be transformed, often with no obvious explanation.

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer both won their first competitive matches of the year at the Qatar Open in Doha yesterday but the game's two best players progressed in contrasting fashions. While Nadal swept aside Slovakia's Karol Beck 6-3, 6-0, Federer was made to work for his 7-6, 6-3 victory over the Dutchman Thomas Schoorel.

There seems only one way to beat Andy Roddick here, and that is deep in the fifth set.
