Let's Raise a Glass of Wine to Marcos in France - Roland Garros 2006

I hope Marcos is well and will be able to play. I got a shock today. Tommy Haas who was also sick in Hamburg had blood tests done and it was said the results weren't good. That is all I know right now about him. I hope it isn't as bad as it sounds because blood tests can show so many different kind of illnesses--some bad and others that can be taken care of easily.

The draw is tolerable for Marcos. It could be better or it could be worse. Clay is Albert Portas favorite surface and he won last month Monfils and Berdych among others.

Portas was playing at home then.And it's three sets now he 's not young anymore, Marcos should win this easily.I think the draw is not bad at all this time.It's all up to him really!!!
Anyway good luck and go Marcos!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Let's Raise a Glass of Wine to Marcos in France - Roland Garros 2006

Actually Iagree....I see this as a dream draw for Marcos and I am very hopeful untill....the quarters maybe only in the first round he will play a clay court specialist but from then on ....this is an easy draw for our champ and Ihope he makes the best out of it.....

Marcos Baghdatis

Yes and please Marcos don't get sick or injuried any more! Other players haven't hurt Marcos as much as his health has

Hope Marcos is prepared to run forward a lot as the big Portas is a huge fan of the drop shot and hits them well and hope he doesn't spray that many forehands like he did against the Duck, as there is a potential weakness that can be exploited on clay.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Marcos adapts quite easily when he is in good form and i think
this time he 'll find his form during the match.It's like home for him in Paris and last year he played quite well here even though he lost!!!
