I don't know how the hell Youzhny lost that. He dominated virtually the whole match. He just totally threw it away. I don't like using the "c" word. I feel it gets used way too much on here but I'm awfully tempted.

Indeed. Youzhny gave that match away and I'm a fan of Marcos...

wipe away your sorrow with no traces."


All the best to the members of the FedererExpress

Re: Baghdatis def Youzhny in Marseille, reaches semifinal

It wasn't a choke (except for that last shot, that was odd) he only had a one break lead! Baggy just pulled some shots off at the right moment.

It was a good, tight match and thank you betfair again!

Edit: Okay, maybe it was a bit of a choke.

Yea, he was up 4-2 I think, in the final set, with break chances. I really thought he had it in the bag.

YOUZHNY YOU F***ING CHOKER! Even Bilbo's granny in a wheelchair would win that match after having 2/4 30-40.

Re: Baghdatis def Youzhny in Marseille, reaches semifinal

OMG.

Youzhny played an amazing match, except that choke in the end. I really don't see how Baggy managed to snatch this after everything Youzhny threw at him.

Anyway, if Youzhny could just sort out this choking problem, he'd be a clear top 10 material. Awesome movement, awesome defense, powerful strokes off both wings, has a decent serve, good return, good volleys and is very good at picking up balls from the floor. Really, no weakness except that mental issue of closing out matches.

I was actually rooting for Baggy but couldn't help feeling a bit sad for Misha for losing like this...

You forgot to say he has "amazing choke ability".

Re: Baghdatis def Youzhny in Marseille, reaches semifinal

One has to say the mental demons are still there with Youzhny, his game is fragile and highly-strung in the same way his on-court demeanour is. What is that, the third time this year he's won an opening set 6-2 and somehow frittered the lead away to lose 7-6/7-5 in the third?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Misha blew his chances - no question about that. Baghdatis is a very lucky man.
