Roland Garros R1: Baghdatis def. Chela 6-3 6-3 6-1
Very strong performance from Marcos, he can trouble Mucho in the next round if he plays like this in R2. Completely dictated play throughout, played offensive tennis and took advantage of Chela's court positioning by moving him around a lot and using angles, hit several effective dropshots, returned very well. Didn't serve at a good percentage but it never mattered because Chela did nothing to hurt Baghdatis off returns. Marcos lost only three points off first serve in the match.
Chela is down to around 80 in the rankings with his QF points off. Didn't serve that great, didn't move that great, didn't really do anything particularly well. Didn't hit the ball that badly but just didn't have anything to impact the match.
