Baghdatis played well, you very astute tennis observers.

I knew that 3.30 was too valuable not to bet.

strategic tank by the goat, he knew this was enough practice to win the ozzie open so there was no reason to finish the tournament and tire himself right before the start of his second slam.

DelPo apparently had some issues with the very pro-Baggy crowd making pro-Baggy noises. But didn't cite it as the reason for losing. In addition, he doesn't know why Baggy is so popular in Australia and doesn't know where Cyprus is. Shame on him.

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.

Talent does not equal results. As tennis gets more and more physical, less and less "old school" tennis talent is needed to win slams. (Also, Baggy HAS beaten top seeds.)

Well done, Bagman.

When unfit sumo wrestler wins a match against top 15 player you know he has choked.

...Delpo is unfit choking expert from Tandil.

No, he didnt. And why does he need to know that? Yeah, he doesnt.

But if he does need to know that, there is Google and voila.

In terms of talent:
Baghdatis >>>>>> Del Potro

In terms of results:
Del Potro >>> Baghdatis

Some poeple still think talent wins you matches.

given the circumstances in which he found himself, Juan Martin's awkwardness/rudeness/boorishness is understandable.

he knows about Cyprus.
