AO R3: Baghdatis eliminates Del Potro: 6-1 6-3 4-6 6-3

Quick end to Del Potro's comeback. Pity because it would have been nice to see him play in the latter stages.

Great match from Baggy for the most part, and too many Pony errors, particularly at the start. He fought to the end though, true warrior. Sad to see him go out, wanted more of him here.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

higher level than i expected from both. del potro still not quite match-fit, but clearly has the shots.

Baghdatis has been known to play well in Melbourne & with Del Potro probably not near his best, this result was expected.

I'm positive Del Potro will be back for real in six months or so. He needs alot more matches.
Baggy looked great today.

Re: Baghdatis eliminates Del Potro: 6-1 6-3 4-6 3-6

Del potro is playing alot better than i am expecting from him at this stage. Good signs, the french open could even be very competitive from juan.

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.

Re: Baghdatis eliminates Del Potro: 6-1 6-3 4-6 3-6

Baggy was too strong for Delpo today. Del Potro made some good shots, but also made a lot of errors. I think that it was a good start of the year for Delpo, with 2 wins and 2 losses. The plan for Australian Open(2nd round) was carried out.

But Del Potro needs more and more work and improvement.

Next up is San Jose! VAMOS!!!

Del Po started to get it back at the end there, looked like he might win in 5 if he broke Baggy at 2-4. Good sign for him, hopefully he can make some noise at Indian Wells/Miami.
