Excellent week for Lacko, first ATP final he loves playing under a roof. Down a break in 2nd set as well, too good from Lukas.

He was never down in the first, was he? I think he was up one.

That backhand down the line was just unbelievable. I knew he had a killer forehand, but in this match the backhand was so good. Safin and Nalbandian is applauding.

well done Lukas!
Too many BH shanks from Baghy though :(

He wasn't down a break in the first set. He went *2-1 up and got broken right back.
A very good win, and he really has a very good backhand. His net-play sucks though.

Fantastic stuff from Lukas, first ATP final, wow! :cheerleader:
That said, Baggy surely gave him a good helping hand in this victory during that 2nd set... shanking after being up a break and visibly frustrated in the TB.

Youzhny - Lacko will be a match worth looking out for. :yeah:

Don't need good net play these days.

Drop shot him frequently and you'll get a lot of easy points.

Youzhny is 3-0 but Lacko is at his best indoors. No matter what happens tomorrow, still his best week.

Modern tennis = "How good is your backhand?".

I like lacko but obviously i'd prefer misha winning.

Fish has a very good backhand.

Fish has a very good backhand.

You didn't get hit, tennis becames a battle of forehands against Fish because of his superior backhand.

Ljubicic, Stepanek and Murray in this case too :D

Actually he didn't get it in that case.

I was talking about how having a good backhand can separate the good from the ok. Not necessarily how the shot is becoming the decisive one in tennis right now, which it will never be btw. Might be the case if the margins are very slim elsewhere (Nadal/Djoko) or in match-ups (Fed/Nad).

Lacko has immense potential really.

:woohoo: :rocker2: Super Lacko
I don't know what, but there is something on Lacko that attracts me so much :drool: :angel: And I'm not alone here.

Lacko:drool: :worship:
You too??? :lol:

Tennis-wise, I have to say that I don't like his occational very flat hitting and loads of errors. Needs to work on consistency, play with a little more spin. But I think he's been doing it lately. :)

Pretty sure you aren't. :p
Rather attractive guy, yes. That lovely hair! :hearts:

Well his consistency has already gone up mucho mucho the past couple of weeks. :)
I spotted him a couple of years ago in Halle for the first time, liked the guy, and it's bloody good seeing him do so well right now! :bounce:

Perfect, perfect match from Lacko ! Great tie-break, i was worried but he did it.

Tomorrow against Youzhny, hopefully a good match with even better result ! :)

This is a great great result for Lukas. Beating a rival of the caliber of Marcos in his first ATP SF means a big big step for him. Whatever happens tomorrow hopefully will mean that Lukas is ready to play in this level. Well done :yeah:
