Stunning MP as well :worship:

I'm not a fan or anywhere near a fan, but congrats Marcos and all his fans out there especially Thomas (Deck), well deserved. :yeah:

I enjoyed watching this match, and am thrilled for Marcos!!! He played some pretty smart tennis... except in the last 5 mins - but match point was great :)

X-man's running forehand is pretty sick.

Like 1 out of 6 times it goes in for a winner

That's the shot that pretty much won the match against Berdych yesterday, totally immense shot.

Agree with what others said, Malisse hit some great winners, but compensated for them with a load of errors. Good match, Marcos seemed so happy to have won at the end :)

looks like baghdatis is finally rounding back into form after that disastrous grass season and his bad showing last week

Told ya so! LOL. Nice to see Baggy win this, as he should. He was my favorite to win the match over Malisse so I'm glad.

almost choked there. Only turned the game on score 6-5,thought bags had it in the bag, atleast he kept it cool in the tie break. Nice last point

Congratulations for Marcos for this victory :yeah:. He played a smart strategy playing soft shots on the rallies and hitting winners when he needed them. On the contrary Malisse looked very unconfortable and made so many mistakes.

Things seemed to changed when Marcos had those troubles on his knee but fortunately he managed to keep on the set and close the match in two sets. Well done :yeah:

I like both very much but I slightly wanted to see X-Man winning. But good luck for Baggy in the final!

Love Baghdatis for his good attitude. Never pretentious.
Lots of good rallies in all.
Against Cilic or Nalby is out to see.

Nobody said anything on Baghdatis rolling his ankle? Not sure if he'll be fine tomorrow.

He will know waking up tomorrow, after treatment tonight, I presume.
He moved well after strapping though.

I wasn't expecting this after the recent wins from Malisse, was thinking he should have the upperhand.
But both is playing good tennis and Bagdatis was probably in better form on the day, good to see both players do well again.
