Nalbandian Vs Baghdatis

Nalby will enter the court with AO's 5 setter semifinal written on his forehead... David wants revenge, Marcos wants to defend last year's points... they can both play on grass with their prominent bellies and they showed it before. What do the all-knowing forum predict for this match? (Besides the obvious showers)

Re: Nalbandian Vs Baghdatis

Baghdatis has owned David N mentally. David will need his best tennis to overcome that.

Baggy in 3 or 4

He has a great grass game and Dave is out of form for ages.

Re: Nalbandian Vs Baghdatis

Funny how two great all time classic AO 5 set semifinals materialize as third round matches here in Wimbledon this year.

Re: Nalbandian Vs Baghdatis

That will be one of these matches I don't want to see a player lose.
Regarding to the current form Marcos is the favourite, but on the other hand you can never underestimate David.

Lets hope for a great entertaining match and may the best player win

Re: Nalbandian Vs Baghdatis

Interesting fact:

Each of their four matches will have been played on a different tennis surface:

2007 Wimbledon Grass R32 ???
2006 Australian Open Hard S Baghdatis 3-6 5-7 6-3 6-4 6-4
2005 Basel Carpet S Baghdatis 6-2 7-6(3)
2005 Roland Garros Clay R128 Nalbandian 0-6 6-4 6-4 6-4

Re: Nalbandian Vs Baghdatis

The only upset this match can possible have is if it doesnt go to a 5th set.
