Congratulations Marcos and now it's time to qualify for some more ATP main draws in 2005.

I hope he keeps playing with a smile on his face.

If he sticks with that coach he had at the US Open, I think he's going to keep that smile. That guy had to have been the coolest coach the comentators interviewed. He said stuff like "It is important for Marcos to have fun" and on the same tone as that. I know that most coaches say that, but it seemed like that was his whole philosophy on the game.

Marcos

Glad Hrbaty lost should never be playing in a challenger with his ranking

Great stuff Marcos. I hope he tries to qualify for the Aus Open, if he does he will get a lot of support from the Greek community in Melbourne.

Thanks for that piece of news Domino, it's good to hear and what I saw of Marcos I liked so far.

Hrbaty was playing at home and it's not like Bratislava is the epicentre of the tennis world.

Re: (Q) Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) def (WC)(1) Domonik Hrbaty (SVK) 7/6 7/6

btw, his ranking is going to shoot up to about 152, up more than 50 places after this result. Man, he went through Beck and then Hrbaty, two really good players, especially the latter.

Yes, the Greeks should support him, since he is from the Greek portion of Cyprus. I think any crowd could warm up to him, considering his personality.

He would be foolish not to play the qualies of the Aus Open, as he would have a very good chance on Rebound Ace and he did win the juniors there.

The Greeks will support him especially since Sampras has retired and Danilidou is very up and down.

I am travelling from the cold winter to the Aus Open, so I hope he shows up.

And since Mark is playing like shit.

Yeah, he should try to qualify. He should also try hard to maybe get his ranking high enough to enter directly, if he wins a couple more challengers before the cutoff next year.

The Poo really stinks at the moment and needs a WC for the Aus Open.

I mean if he qualifies and wins 2 rounds which he is very capable of that will help his ranking in a big way. Though injury free next season, there could be some big strides.

This is a very nice result for him. I would have preferred to have seen Dominik win it, but it doesn't really matter.. Karol lost in the semis

That's not a good enough excuse IMO
No top 50 player should be playing challengers let alone somebody ranked #14 in the world
And Hrbaty has been in great form it's not one of those situations where you are in a slump and it's a good idea to go to a challenger
