Nice win, Baggy. Only saw the end but Verdasco was boring to watch as usual.

Terrible tennis. Dasco's forehand was and Baggy just pushed the whole match. 15 df's combined. You say this is good for tennis??

Happy for Marcos though

Worst match i've seen in a while.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

i fully expect xavier malisse to dispose of bags tomorrow. That was an atrocious performance from both players, and verdasco especially looked like a recreational usta player. The laughing from Fernando's coach and dad basically meant he will be tanking this match. He should be fined for this performance.

Not many people would have predicted a Malisse-Baggy QF. Great week for Marcos so far!

I'm a Fiasco hater and a Baghdatis fan. So it was a great result for me.

Verdasco has been really bad for a couple months now. Probably has to do with his ridiculous scheduling during the clay-court season.

It was a very poor match, but Marcos is through to the semis and is closer to the Top 20. If he wins against Malisse tomorrow, he will be back in it.
