Sets 2 and 3 were an absolute beatdown. Awesome job by Baggy.

Best match Baghdatis has played in a while. His forehand turned into a consistent weapon once again and his serve started to come around. Good stuff with the AO around the corner. Hewitt's level dropped off after the first set a lot at the same time. Marcos didn't give him many chances though.

Best match Baghdatis has played in a very long time.

Sydney QF: Baghdatis d. Hewitt 4-6 6-2 6-3

Well that puts to rest the idea of a Gasquet versus Hewitt final. Well done Marcos, definitely one of the most dangerous unseeded players in the Australian Open.

It would be intense if they had a rematch at this year's AO

Pretty sick how bad Hewitt played. At least all the potential for the AO is there.

Baghdatis stepped up. Simple as that.

Yeah but Hewitt's countless unforced errors were even "stronger".

Agreed Baggy started to hit his forehand deeper into the corner and upped his serving game. Lleyton didn't really have an answer for it at all. He started to press a little leading to the increased UE's.

Lleyton

Baghdatis just stepped it up though in the last 2 sets. Lleyton tried but he always had an answer or Lleyton tried to do too much and ending up making an error. Good luck at Aus Open Lleyton!
