One of the most tactically inept displays of tennis you'll ever see

Baghdatis

Re: Monfils defeats Baghdatis 7-6 6-2 2-6 6-LOVE

The 3rd and 4th sets were just awful.

Monfils wasn't injured he just gave up on the set and by pretending to be injured was the only way he wouldn't get into trouble and then Marcos fell apart in the 4th.

Watching eurosport just now and they are asking why its hard to play against an injured opponent. He wasn't injured!!!

If Tursunov beats Mirnyi tomorrow, Baghdatis will be out of Top20...

Monfils is kinda stupid. He plays so well, but his style gets him injured all the time. Tone your style a little down and you'll be in Top15. Ah and get a coach, please.

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!

Congratties Gael Baghdatis forgot to take a valid forehand with him. As it has been predicted, he may be that kind of a Guga Kuerten who makes a wonderful slam performance, and comes back to top form in few years.

(I hope he'll lose his doubles match as well, by the way )

Hmm, what to add more, it was a good match for the gamblers Good luck against Richie to Gael (you'll need it )

Re: Monfils defeats Baghdatis 7-6 6-2 2-6 6-LOVE

No problem with tactics for Baggy IMO, just that his groundstrokes were as erratic as they come. OK, he should have come to the net a few times he didn't

Props to Monfils for serving good and keeping the ball in play. Some nice shots and defense, but also a few brainfarts there.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

he made life too easy for Monfils injured or not

INDEED.

That long rally at 0-3 15-30 in the 4th set was the best example, he had like 10 chances to come to the net.

Baghdatis was shocking all night, especially his fh which was completely off

But props to Monfils, good job
