Re: US Open Round Two: Baghdatis (8) v Agassi

As much as I would love Andre to win... But I think, Marcos will win. Hopefully it will be a great match with best tennis from both!

supporting:
Federer * Nalbandian * Safin * Blake * Gasquet * Baghdatis

Re: US Open Round Two: Baghdatis (8) v Agassi

In the past era, I was a fan of Pete's and in this era, Bagdhatis is one of my favorites. Agassi was never one of my faves but I respect the guy A LOT....his sportsmanship, his character, his persona on and off-court are really admirable traits. So for this match, even though I want Baghdatis to win, I also want a fairy-tale ending for Andre, especially since this is his last tour. I want to see all the emotions on this match. So, I hope Agassi will win and will get a great, meaningful Open for him and for all his fans and for all tennis & sports viewers around the world.

If Marcos was in the same form as he was earlier in the season then Baggy all the way but Andre will fight him to the death and in the end the magician will find a way to win. It will be a great match with two great personalities and tennis players.

Marcos will win IF he snaps out of whatever was wrong with him on Monday . . . he was out to lunch . . . not moving well at all, his return was atrocious, not focused . . .

Re: US Open Round Two: Baghdatis (8) v Agassi

It would be better for Marcos not to win this match. At least if he wants to leave the stadium alive

Marcos will win this in three unless he goes into deep mental void!

I like that attitude. I dont dare to vote. Too superstitious.

Re: US Open Round Two: Baghdatis (8) v Agassi

When I saw the draw for the first time, I was pretty sure that Marcos will beat Agassi. This has changed a bit after the Pavel-match, but I still think Baghdatis will succeed.

Anyway, beating Agassi and the crowd can become a very important step in his career. It would give him tons of self confidence. I'm convinced that there's much more for Marcos to win than to lose.
