Why I find it easy to root for Baghdatis?

1st set of Beijing final, Ancic serves at *4:5, 0:40.
After a solid volley by Ancic, Baggy hits a great diagonal passing shot and wins the set, but Ancic falls on the ground trying to catch that hit. They showed a slow motion of Baggy later: now he just won the set, but there is not even a hint of celebration or smile, as he rushes to the net to see what happened to Ancic.
Hats down, Baggy.
Oh and BTW, congrats on your 1st title.

Took Ancic a long time to get up, I was a little worried there for a second too.

I love Baghdatis, but honestly I think most other players would have reacted the same way.

Marcos is a real sportsman, that's why he is so important for today's tennis.

Re: Why I find it easy to root for Baghdatis?

most players would have done the same (except for roddick, he'd probably scream "too good", stare down his opponent and run to his chair)

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Re: Why I find it easy to root for Baghdatis?

Baggy isn't exceptional in this regard...although a certain Scotsman would probably walk by if it were Stepanek

...but wouldn't most players?

Re: Why I find it easy to root for Baghdatis?

yea, Marcos is very likable and so is Mario. I feared Mario would injury himself in that point, but he should be ok because he still will still play doubles, hope he get this one.

Kiefer would have thrown his racquet to give him the finishing blow.

whoa hater.

Marcos has shown lots of great sportsmanship, I think Jon Weirtheim also noted this. Nice to see someone as young as that be able to hold himself maturely and professionally.

I assume you are joking.
I agree that many players will do that like Marcos, but it's still very nice, no?

Guys. don't try to ruin the sweet moments.
