good start for Jarkko :yeah:

Marcos had a few too many double faults and his forehand was leaking errors.

More importantly, Marcos seemed to have problems with his knee. Hope it's not another injury plagued season for him.

Jarkko didn't start too good, but he soon picked up his game and was really dominating the last 2 sets :yeah:

Good start for Jarkko, he has a lot of points to defend. Hopefully this will boost his confidence!

Nieminen looked super fit and sexy, coming on to his forehands nicely.

Baghdatis on the other hand, seemed to be extremely fatigued and was carrying a knee injury of some sort. He was still able to start rallying midway through the third set. :confused:

Didn't seem like much of an injury. he didn't call a time-out anyway. just got a brief rub down off the trainer at the end of the 2nd set. seemed to be the thigh area just above the knee. Looked more like fatigue.
And the major yips on the 2nd serve showed how low his confidence is right now. He lost his serve with a df at least 3 times.

He got footfaulted a heap of times too, which wouldn't have helped. Jarkko did too which is something I've rarely if ever seen in a match before.

Baghdatis form will come with more matches and tournements he plays. Well done Jarko more positive and attacking play than last year, beat tsonga now in the next round hopefully

Good match, Jarrko was very motivated, Baghdatis saved double match point in the 9th game in a great style (half-volley and dropshot) but didn't manage again to win a match after saving MP.

Obviously not!!!!! If he has won a few ATP tourneys, wimbledon sf's and some junior grand slams obviously he's not a fluke. I can't stand it when people say stuff like that. Baggy has just had bad luck w/injuries, that's all:shrug:.

Turkish-Cypriots:wavey: And he has every right to, so obviously you need to look up the Cyprus issue, b/c you have no idea what you're talking about :o.

He's injured because he's fat.

Overweight = injuries.

Simple as that.

:yeah: He's too fat for a tennis player. If he reduces his weight, his injuries will go away.

Losing a set to Fatdatis... not good from Jarkko.

If You were watching match You could see that He lost a lot of his weight during break. Marcos really looks surprising slim.
