Marcos will join the quality line-up at the AEGON Championships at Queen’s Club next week, after being awarded a wild card due to the withdrawal of Kei Nishikori with an elbow injury.

Go, Marcos!

Wasn't going to bother with Queens this year as Novak isn't playing - but with Marcos AND Janko - I may well be tempted to go once after work :D

:wavey: Hi Andrew, - you're the only person I know here I think :o I live quite near Queens and have tickets for Centre Court for tomorrow. I will do my best to cheer your man on, and try and write a report of the match here as soon as I can.

Good Job Marko!Now up next Youzhny! Tough match :(

I was quite impressed with Marcos today - and Youzhny is not in his best form at the moment, so - you never know :D

I think James Ward was a good opening opponent for Marcos - don't wish to be cruel, but James is not a star, top player, so playing him allowed Marcos to get used to the grass and the Centre Court without any pressure.

Marcos started rather nervously - he served a double fault in the first game of the match, and seemed to be having problems moving on the grass. However, as James made so many unforced errors, it gave Marcos the confidence to experiment more and try more variety in his game, and he came out an easy winner:)

:awww: Please don't feel terrible - we are all short of time. And there are loads of places on MTF (including here), that i would also like to spend more time in, if I had the time :shrug: You are always welcome in Serbia Forum whenever you have the time to stop by :D

OT:I saw someone here have a hate list in his/her signature and Marcos was there. Who hates Marcos? Marcos is so nice and it's not like he's a dickhead like Kendrick or something:shrug:

Apparently the initial diagnosis is a pulled tendon and he will be out for 2 weeks.

What a relief this would be.

So no Wimbledon?:mad:
Well now I guess I can tell me friends we can celebrate my birthday on either the 24th or 25th since it won't interfere with any Greeks at Wimbledon:tears:

:hug: awww

At least if it's only a pulled tendon,he will be back in less than a month!Let's focus at the bright sight now!
Let's wait to hear from an official source.

Marcos is in the draw for Wimby!!:confused::confused: Hasn't he already withdrawn??

MarcosBaghdatis
06-19-2009, 02:51 PM
Marcos is in - but this does not mean that he will play. Markos injury occurred after the start of the qualifying. So there was no meaning to withdraw. If he decides to withdraw, his place will be given to lucky looser. Same decission will be taken by Nadal and Monfils.

Monfils is not in the draw.
But i agree, chances he'll play are probably very slim. And he should only do it, if he's healthy, I don't want him to retire with a more severe injury.

He has just withdrawn according to the news here in UK :sad: I just heard it officially on the Sky Sports News. Sorry :hug:

Nope..a huge Fed fan!:p
but still how can someone be happy when a player gets injured?:sad::sad::sad:
I would love to see Nadal healthy,even if that meant that Fed lost to him in the final..:o
