Baghdatis: Djokovic doesn't scare me



Watch out, Nole, Baghdatis means business!

Knowing Baghdatis, he's probably joking...or maybe not, maybe Nole upset him or something.


Baghdatis: Djokovic doesn't scare me

Marcos Baghdatis says that the presence of world No. 1 Novak Djokovic at the Dubai Duty Free Open does not scare him. "When I am in the tournament I don't see Novak winning," the former Australian Open finalist told Gulf News. "I am here to win and I don't care if he is there. I doubt he can win here this week, not when I am here at least."

Djokovic’s 20-year-old younger brother, Marko, received a wild card into the draw. Marko is ranked No. 867 this week and has yet to win an ATP main-draw match.

I admire self-confidence.

Self-parody, not so sure about...

He has the game to beat Djokovic but he also proved he is mentally weak to actually do it. Basel was a great example.

Re: Baghdatis: Djokovic doesn't scare me

Novak has yet to win a tournament when Baghdatis is playing


“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Baghdatis: Djokovic doesn't scare me

I'd like to share a sip of that ouzo he's drinking.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"


"The Storm Before The Calm"

Re: Baghdatis: Djokovic doesn't scare me

It is one thing if Del Potro says something like this. He already has a slam and is in many people's eyes the true #5 if not #4 in the world.

But Baghdatis After the past few years he has had

Still, I admire his gumption. I would rather him be overly confident than to bend over like Troicki for Djokovic.

I suppose that was his point; a player doesn't enter tournaments expecting to lose to anyone... or else why be there? You have to believe you can win. It's just the way he phrased it.

Re: Baghdatis: Djokovic doesn't scare me

Doesn't matter if Djokovic doesn't scare him. Each week someone else does.


A bit of a redundant comment really, especially as he isn't even in Djokovic's half of the draw. He should be thinking about how he is going to counter Tsonga up first.
