Zagreb SF : Lacko def. Baghdatis 7-5 7-6 (3)

Excellent week for Lacko, first ATP final he loves playing under a roof. Down a break in 2nd set as well, too good from Lukas.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

He was never down in the first, was he? I think he was up one.

That backhand down the line was just unbelievable. I knew he had a killer forehand, but in this match the backhand was so good. Safin and Nalbandian is applauding.

He wasn't down a break in the first set. He went *2-1 up and got broken right back.
A very good win, and he really has a very good backhand. His net-play sucks though.

Fantastic stuff from Lukas, first ATP final, wow!
That said, Baggy surely gave him a good helping hand in this victory during that 2nd set... shanking after being up a break and visibly frustrated in the TB.

Youzhny - Lacko will be a match worth looking out for.

Don't need good net play these days.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Drop shot him frequently and you'll get a lot of easy points.

Youzhny is 3-0 but Lacko is at his best indoors. No matter what happens tomorrow, still his best week.

Modern tennis = "How good is your backhand?".

Question answered.
