:) Great result for Baghdatis and his first ever AMS SF and it is likely he will play the guy he played in his only previous AMS QF (Nadal).

Robredo just got outmanoevred and outplayed by Baghdatis who played very well. Maybe a few too many dropshots there but no matter and defeating Robredo solidly isn't easy.

Good job, Baggy.:woohoo:

Relly pleased. Feel a bit bad for wishing failure on Robredo, but TMC will be a better place with Murray or Gasquet there.

Good year, Tommy. :hug:

Marcos can still qualify for Shanghai if he wins the title and the winner of Richie-Andy loses in the SF.

Also Nalbi has a chance to make it as an alternate if he goes all the way.

Great result. :yeah:

With all due respect to Robredo I'm sure most people wanted either Gasquet or Murray to make the TMC, not another Spaniard. And Baggy still has a shot at making the TMC although he needs the winner of Murray-Gasquet to lose in the SF.

That's for the assist, Marcos.

Robredo - you were there last year and didn't really impress or impose yourself on the event so I'm glad to see we'll get another new face this year - losing Robredo and Ljubicic is good news. Nalbandian 2.0 would have been good but it looks like he arrived too late at the party to make it unless Roddick quacks off.

I agree Tommy didn't make any noise last year, but as much as I like both Murray and Gasquet I honestly don't think they'll make much more of an impression on the other six.

Both of them can school Roddick, beat Gonzalez, beat Ferrer and Murray has dismissed the PMK twice.

last year and 100 points of his win against blake in the masters cup


i am sure he will be outside of the top ten at the end of the year.

Well, there are no certainties but Nadal is a horrible matchup for him, I had more hopes for the 1st round match in Madrid than here even though Marcos had an excellent run in Basel and in this tournament so far. I would love to be proven wrong though.

He just doesn't believe enough when it comes to the very top players. It would be great if this changes tomorrow but I don't think it will.

He just doesn't believe enough when it comes to the very top players. It would be great if this changes tomorrow but I don't think it will.

It is not only belief, this is a bad matchup for Marcos, he serves at a low 1st serve % so he gives Nadal looks for baseline rallies on his serve. Even more importantly, he doesn't handle high balls to his forehand very well, this is particularly bad against Nadal as he ends up far behind the baseline in rallies.

But belief is certainly important, for example the Madrid match.

It's a shame that Tommy won't get a chance to play in Shanghai, but to me whats worse is that Gasquet took Tommy's place. At least it wasn't Murray, but yeah I'd rather Tommy over Gasquet anyday.
