AO R1: [28] Baghdatis def Ramos 6-7(0) 7-6(4) 6-4 3-6 6-3

Match point was really good. Good effort from both. It wasn't the prettiest at times but both men were battling out there fighting through fatigue issues producing some entertaining rallies. Baghdatis really can't make a run here if he's going to be gassed like that. You could sense he was feeling tired late in the 4th set but regrouped nicely for the 5th.

Yes, Marcos' fitness has slipped. A shame really, given all that talent. He'll have another 1 or 2 of these 5-setters and then give way.

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

How can anyone say Ramos is weaponless? His forehand is huge, it´s inconsistent, yeah, but deadly at times.

Great effort by Ramos, but I'm glad Marcos got the job done!

Not a great way to start the tournament, mugging it up with Ramug for 5 sets. I'm glad he won though

Fakervic played at 150% against Federer as usual.


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

Only watched 1st, 4th and final set, one of the best matches I've seen Ramos played.

The Aussie Open doesn't really begin until Baggy and Mugro have got stuck in 5 setters.

Albert deserved better. This will be the kick start that his season needs.

On to the clay where I sense chances for a maiden title are high.

this match hurt my eyes. Glad Marcos won it in the end. He really needs to play more agressively or he will exit the tournament prematurely

Baghdatis fitness is a joke. He's worse than Fat Dave.

Ramos is underrated on these boards, he can be a tough one to beat, not as nearly weaponless as most are saying.

This might be the best I've ever seen Ramos play on a hard court.

That said, Baggy is screwed.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.
