WWW Cincy QF Nadal - Baghdatis?

I think this is a very cool match to watch.
Nadal is Nadal.
But Nadal in hardcourts is not so Nadal.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)

Nadal.

Baghdatis is not a top 10 player.

Re: WWW Cincy QF Nadal - Baghdatis?

Depends on where Rafa is at physically and how he feels with his game. He's the favorite, but he certainly is second best when it comes to present form.

Re: WWW Cincy QF Nadal - Baghdatis?

If Baggy plays the way he did today I can see him getting a set.

Rafa in 3.

Rafa is playing awful, but i still believe that he will improve tomorrow. It will be very very hard, but again the #1 will provide. Rafa in 3!

Re: WWW Cincy QF Nadal - Baghdatis?

I don't see why Marcos hasn't had more success against Nadal. He has an excellent Nalbandian-ish backhand, forehand is smooth, solid serve and great feel/hands. I know much of his issue is mental, but still, he doesn't really have anything Nadal can truly attack.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

The way the two are playing I think Baghdatis has a good shot.

Nadal will win. Baghdatis serves too many 2nd serves.

have seen you consistently bet against Rafa every time and more often than not he prevails. This time you are picking him and that makes me nervous

ROGER = GOAT*

*Assumes Rafael Nadal was never born

It's because he's not consistent enough on serve or with his FH when he gets the chance to attack. If he's hitting it well, he causes problems for anyone, but he'll invariably make a string of errors and get behind in the set. If he serves anything better than 50% in a match then it's a bonus, and serving at 50% is almost never enough to defeat Nadal. On top of all this, Nadal does a good job of moving Baghdatis around and tiring him out since Baggy will back away from an aggressive FH chance since he's missed some already. When Marcos is hitting it well and getting some serves in, he causes problems for Nadal, but there will inevitably come a time when he'll miss a bunch of serves and/or miss a bunch of FH's/BH's.
