Good, solid win. Didn't see the match, but his 2nd serve point win seems a bit worrying. Looks like he depends a lot on his serve.
Still a solid win over the overrated Nishikori. Wonder what he can do against a rusty Murray.
I watched the full match. To be honest both players played like shit - too many unforced errors!!! Baghdatis won only because Nishikori's serve didn't give any dividends to Japanese. Without first serve Marcos would lose this match for sure. Cypriot made maybe 2-3 winners on rallies, opponent - 10-12. it's really poor figures. I'm a big fun of Marcos, but without huge improvoment in his game he won't be able to compete with Murray/Muller.
Playing doubles helps get the rust off. Good job Baggy.
Kei is going to have to put in some hard miles. Hard hard miles.
So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
