Re: Sydney QF: Baghdatis def. Del Potro 7-6(7), 6-4
I watched the match. Definitely Delpo lost his chances here as he was serving 5-4 in the first set and then in the tie break was 5-4 and two serves to close the match. No big expectations for him for the Australian Open with this poor mentality.
[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.
given the circumstances in which he found himself, Juan Martin's awkwardness/rudeness/boorishness is understandable.
he knows about Cyprus.
I think you are being biased. Rowdy crowd behavior that upsets players is endemic only at the US Open and nowhere else in the civilized world. That's what MTF says and they're the experts.
"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
