Baghdatis and Monte Carlo

He's nowhere to be seen in the draw. He also missed the last ATP tournament, but he had played for Davis Cup (Cyprus vs Slovenia). I read somewhere that he withdrew for personal reasons, but the fact that he played for Cyprus suggests that at least his health and family must be ok.

Puzzled...

Re: Baghdatis and Monte Carlo

He should stop wasting his talent and get his fat ass to the gym. He is such a great shotmaker with zero work ethics.

This "fatigue" didn't force him to withdraw from Davis Cup and some exhibition tournaments. How can he be fatigued when he played 15 matches this year, what makes a great number of one match per week average. Unless it is something I don't know about he is just a lazy ass.

Re: Baghdatis and Monte Carlo

He probably just needs some time for himself and his family. Which is understandable.


Come back soon

Re: Baghdatis and Monte Carlo

Was the Davis Cup tie in Cyprus? Is there perhaps a personal reason that Marcos wants to stay close to home for a while? Charlie Bricker alluded to this with a brief mention in one of his blogs from Miami, so it seems that some of the players know what is going on and are being very protectively tight-lipped about it (good for them).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Yes it was in Cyprus and my thought exactly. He wouldn't withdraw so far in advance of Rome and Hamburg if he didn't have a reason. Maybe there's something serious going on with his family or something. So pathetic how quickly people negatively judge these guys on here.

Re: Baghdatis and Monte Carlo

He surely wouldn't miss Mandatory tournaments and turn up for Barcelona!

I really hope for the guy to do reasonably well.
