Cincy R3: Baghdatis crushes (7) Berdych 75 64

Great tennis from Marcos. Broke at 5-5 in the first and early in the 2nd. Faces Nadal/Benneteau in the quarterfinals.

Berdych's right knee/calve was apparently bothering him. He wasnt being the classiest guy with Marcos today, laughing at him while Marcos argued with the chair.

Cant wait to see Marcos in the USO. Hope he withdraws from New Haven next week.

That's probably the best I've seen Baghdatis play for years, he made Berdych's shots look like nothing.

Marcos

Hope he brings it to the Open this year.

Berdych went down by the same scoreline Cilic did, with Marcos putting up equally low first serve %s.

Baggy! Great performance today! He almost ended the match on another break, but then held on to win it after Birdman saved 2 mps.

Please skip New Haven, Baggy. Don't exhaust yourself as you did before the AO.

Marcos will likely beat Rafa.

bad performance by Berdych, hoping that his pains won't compromise his US Open

Some good tennis from Baggy at last

If he serves a bit more consistently (45% 1st serve is low) he is definitely in the top 10 soon.

If Baghdatis plays like this he should do well against Rafa, however to beat Rafa he'll need to increase that 1st serve % no doubt.

Certainly one of his best chances but Rafa leads the H2H 6-0 and has lost 3 sets

Re: Cincy R3: Baghdatis crushes (7) Berdych 75 64

What a scalp for Baggers! Shades of AO 2006 there. The real question is whether he can sustain it into the next round. I fear not if his first serve percentage does not improve.

It's an unfortunate loss for Berdych, he was outplayed today whether he had a slight calf injury or not. But I hope he can shake off whatever is bothering him physically in time for the US Open.

Baghdatis played well. Should win his next match if he can get a bit over 50% of his first serves in.
