If that match doesn't get you in the mood for the first Grand Slam of the year nothing will. Good battle from both.

Don't sleep on the man from Cyprus in the Aussie ladies n gents.

Great match by both but I hate that line call that Mardy had to challenge in the tiebreak because the linesman called a ball out that was barely in. Baggy was so going to miss the volley :( Still though, as always, Mardy is a truly classy guy and great sport. Fun match overall but allez RICHARD in the finals :D

If im not mistaken, the linesman didnt call it out but Mardy challenged it before Baggy missed the volley! The commentator said that if the ball was in, then it would be a great error Mardy challenging that.

are you idiot?? must be... :confused: fish has an ugly game ? effortless serve , beautiful backhand, and he is among the players who can still volley. there are not too much of this type.

Thought it was all over for Fish before I left in the second set, but obviously he came back!

His forehand is rather ugly though. Some of the balls he hits on that side wind up so out of play sometimes it is just baffling. Stay away from his backhand whenever you get into rallies and Mardy isn't anything special.

Some clownish play from both in the beginning of the 3rd set. But Mardy was great at net and played some really beautiful volleys in the 3rd set. He played like a real man and deserves some credit. Baghdatis was just very lucky at *4-3 in final TB. :worship: for Mardy for never giving up and saving about 3 or 4 MP :)
Good luck in Melbourne for both of them!

Wish Baghdatis would drop ugly habit of thanking God on court whenever he wins a match.

This, I wasn't home today so I had to record so I saw whatever Seven showed, that means the first 5 games of the match and the final set tiebreak, sounds like a great match.

Fishy :sad:

His game is fun to watch btw :rolleyes: Just about the only American I support. Net approaches much more clever than Roddick who charges at the net like a madman

this, well besides Fish's backhand.


Baghdatis :rocker2: but should have won this in 2 sets and hopefully he's not using up all his energy now :o he better have a good run at the AO with his draw :p
