Agassi vs. Baghdatis

Baggy was being moved side to side to side by agassi in almost every point and he moved fine. At the very least, he was not hampered by the injury he sustained at the end. I'm worried that people will think the injury gave Andre the match, but it was his own will and the crowd that gave it to him. It seemed as though Baghdatis was perfectly fine to me in those last few games.

Well-DESERVED win from Andre!!!

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

ha i'm sorry bro but you are a fucking idiot... it was obvious he wasn't faking for a few serves all he could barely do was block the ball back if he could even reach for it... the fact that baghdatis even stayed alive in that game was the fact agassi couldn't get a damn first serve in... faked it, give me a fucking break!

Do you even know how cramps work? They come and go. He was most definitely cramping badly when he fell on the ground and then got up and started working them out. But his muscles eventually loosened and he started moving better again in the last few games. I just don't see how you can say his injury was fake.

If he was faking it then he definitely threw away some points

Cramp can come and go quite rapidy

It happened when he was stretching for a ball. He is hardly going to fake it when he cant take a medical timeout. He was struggling reaching the serves and whilst he was moving ok in some points I guess he was playing on through the pain when he got on top in the rally. There was one clear point where he could have made the ball if he didnt have cramp.

He would hardly then change his service action and throw in 2 double faults all in an attempt to put Agassi off.

if it was a cramp in his thigh those are ridiculously painful... i've had them in my legs after playing a 36 hole golf tournament in 105 degree heat (not enough fluids) and i'm telling you for him to be standing was a miracle!

Look at Baghdatis' face during the points he was cramping and see the tears in his eyes. He wasn't faking anything.

He was cramping. That doesn't mean Andre didn't deserve it. Fitness is part of tennis, and I guess Andre, who is 15 years older, was in better shape (or drank more fluids, etc.)

I agree, I get bad cramps in my legs from time to time and I couldn't imagine playing at a match that way.

As I was watching the match I was thinking, "some idiot is going to say baghdatis was faking it" even though he literally gave points away.

Sounds like Baghman needs to hit the gym and bananas.

shame Murray hasn't had the fortune of seeing cramp go away as quickly as Marcos' cramp did He wasn't faking though.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: I know this sounds shitty, but I think Baggy was NOT injured at all...

Actually, I rescind my statement. What I meant to say was that... his ability to win the match was not hampered by the "injury".

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.
