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.
I used to be your everyday average Joe. Then one day some guy told me I can do whatever I set my heart on. So I tried to fly, and failed. He then told me that there are limitations in life and that I should be more modest in my aspirations. So I robbed a convenience store and got arrested. He then told me not to take everything people say literally, and to use my own initiative. So I became a Trump supporter, and am politely asking you to leave my country.

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.
