Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

This guy never got to 3d round at US after 7 (!) attempts. Only three victories here - 2004 (Mutis), 2006 (Waske) and this year (Bachinger).

Well, it`s not unique thing in Open era when strong guy sucks at some Slam (I guess a plenty of fans know about Muster`s record at Wimbledon), but unusual thing nowadays. Even more, if it were RG - well, ok. But hard is Baggy`s favourite surface, he got to final at Slam on it, played in Cincy semi few years ago, etc. And never couldn`t win two matches in a row at US Open? Can`t believe, something is wrong here.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

The only thing that can explain this is if in 2006, Simon Reed said that Baghdatis will win the USO

Re: Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

It is weird. JCF has been hopeless at RG since he won it and F.Lopez's record at RG has been 1-8 since 2004.

The early Christians cursed all male Cypriots, that's who.

Re: Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

Talented player but his physical condition to hang in grand slams is crap. So it's really no surprise.

Re: Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

No one cursed him he is just a really talented man who has been winging it for years but whenever he faces anyone professional with a plan a and plan b he goes down.

Total BS. Then why does he have 44-23 W-L in remaining slams and 3-7 at the USO? + F, 2 times R16 AO; SF, QF, R16 W; R16 RG. He has never been even remotely close to R16 at the USO.

Re: Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

I love Marcos. Great player, great personality. love to see him smiling, wining or losing. not sure about this 'curse thing' but I simply believe that he hasn't been fit enough to compete at the highest level. I expected great things from him after he reached the final of the AO back in 2006 but it didn't work out.

Re: Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

tactically, he's not as aggressive as he used to be. Also, he can't get enough first serves in consistently to really hold comfortably against a competent opponent. He just doesn't have that fire or power like he used to and that could be the physical condition you guys were talking about.
