This is Baggy's Grand Slam breakthrough. He can beat Roddick, plus his greek/cypriot/australian supporters will give the Duck pretty crap during the whole match. :p

I am sure Baghdatis will make a nice match, but the chance of seeing an upset is small. Now Marcos is a sort of "miniFed" gamewise, so... :D

PS: This one could be fun to bump is Roddick loses... but yeah it won't happen unless he injures himself! ;)

Not sure how he will handle Andy's serve, may be the key to this, but when he is hot he is quite a shotmaker!

Andy is breezing through this. He has shown with the last three matches that he can compete with Federer, which scares me. I should add that none of these players are ANY where close to Federers calibre. But you can tell that Andy has worked hard during the off season.

He has a huge challenge ahead no doubt, but I'm definetly not counting him out like others have done. I think Andy has the determination to win, something I felt he lacked at Wimbledon. He's been amazing the past three matches. Regardless of the outcome, if there is a final between Roger and Andy, its garaunteed to be a good one.

I don't think it is a lack of determination that prevented Andy from winning Wimbledon. I believe he did want to win Wimbledon; however, Roger played an unbelieveably fantastic match in that final. Andy at his very best would not have been good enough to beat Roger on that day.

Roddick should win, but with the way Baghdatis has been playing, he easily could take the 'upset' if Andy is off his game even a little (mentally or physically).

Baggy has more talent than AR, but he just got his first coach of his own. Has to put together his game, build his confidence, and develop his body some more. Then beating him should be very much on the table.

It is interesting how both won their matches so easily. Andy won with scoreline of 1-2-2 and Marcos with a scoreline of 2-1-2.

I hope that this match will live up to (my) expectations. One thing that I think could be a lot of fun is both should have their more boisterous fans.

I doubt it, Roddick's been playing well. This really isn't a breakthrough, he made the fourth round last year as well. I'm going with Roddick in straight sets, his serve was overwhelming and he was playing well in rallies, plus Baghdatis goes on a lot of cold streaks.

Unless Federer is off Roddick is flush. The only one who can possibly beat Federer is Nalbandian or Haas. If Nalbandian loses before final then Federer can celebrate his 2nd AO.

For me, the most interesting matchup of the 4th round. I would have liked to see blake/nalbandian, but I feel nalbandian/robredo (if david is playing well, he should win). I had a few doubts about if he would beat blake, its a shame we wont see this matchup.

I think it will be a tough match, I would like to see marcos win, but I feel andy is probably the favourite for sure, but I do think marcos has a great chance.

I really cant wait for this, I am hoping its the night match on laver?

Andy will try to blitz his way through but if Marcos finds his groove this will get very interesting. By the way, i think that Marcos is a more difficult opponent for Andy than Ginepri would be.

I think it will be an incredibly tight match which Roddick will win in five. Here's a set by set prediction

Set 1: Baghdatis comes out on fire and outplays Roddick to win 6-3

Set 2: Roddick ups his game a little and Baghdatis gest tired late in the set allowing Roddick to take the set 7-5

Set 3: Baghdatis manages to pull through a tight set 7-6

Set 4: Roddick comes back into the match and takes the fourth set 6-4

Set 5: Everyone is geared up for the final set but Baghdatis can't hold himself together mentally and tanks the set allowing Roddick to win 6-0

So. Roddick to win 3-6 7-5 6-7 6-4 6-0

andi has been playing well, but so has marcos. I think though, that andi will bring his big match experience to this
I don't expect andi to lose but I expect that this will be at least 4 sets maybe even 5. i also think that if goes 5, it raises chances that marcos wins (underdog with nothing to lose, and pressure will get to andi if it goes to 5)

This is Baggy's Grand Slam breakthrough. He can beat Roddick, plus his greek/cypriot/australian supporters will give the Duck pretty crap during the whole match. :p

I doubt it, Roddick's been playing well. This really isn't a breakthrough, he made the fourth round last year as well. I'm going with Roddick in straight sets, his serve was overwhelming and he was playing well in rallies, plus Baghdatis goes on a lot of cold streaks.

I didn't think it was a breakthrough at that point, because he had made the fourth round this year. Listen, I didn't think he had much of a chance of beating Roddick, I was rooting for Andy, but I'm not all that disappointed because Baghdatis completely outplayed him and Roddick didn't play all that bad.

I hope Baghdatis can make the semi's and heck...the final.

Roddick got outplayed, pure and simlple. He kept drifting behind the baseline letting Baghdatis hit winners all over the court. Mr. Aggressive looks more like Mr. Passive-Aggressive now. This was a pathetic performance by Roddick and an outstanding performance by Baghdatis.

I love Baghdatis, but yikes, this was an unbelievable surprise. So disappointed Roddick couldn't bring it all out. As much as the commentators bug, they were absolutely right on about him - bad court positioning, the defensive posture, the lack of 'zip' on his forehands - it's just like last year only this time a younger, lesser known player exposed those flaws. And I don't remember the Roddick of 2003 ever going into the final game of a loss with a defeatist attitude.

One thing I didn't understand about the commentating was the comparison to Nalbandian. Last year all I heard was "poor man's Federer" which was what Marcos proved to be today in beating Roddick.

It's gonna suck waiting for the slam after next for Roddick to really get a good major result again... assuming that happens.

This was a poor performance by Andy, plain and simple. Yes, he got outplayed, and I'm not saying he wouldn't have lost anyway, but he could have done a hell of a lot more out there. What happened to the aggression? The power? The goddamn effort there at the end? He badly needs a large dose of confidence. Oh well, back to the drawing board. I feel bad for him.

His domination ended as soon as the players learned how to play against this kind of tennis, especially when you play like Marcos... Andy was sooo lost out there... But I've lost my hopes of him learning something from such loses a long time ago.

Its not them playing the match of their life, its just there are alot of players who are better from andy at the back of the court. If they are able to return the serve, there are so many players who can beat andy. The trouble is, his service and power usually pull him through.

Marcos even has the ability to bash winners past roddick at will, which makes the job even easier. He is quite a fast player too, and those shots on the run are amazing! He has some of the brilliance of a federer too!

Its quite interesting to see how marcos returned against the duck, quite often he just dropped the ball in and made the duck come to net! Because of marcos's superb speed, he was confident in running down roddicks approaches and slapping winners past the duck, embarassing the duck scrambling at the net looking at the ball fly past :yeah: The trouble is, not everyone has the ability to run balls down like marcos, and by dropping the ball in they are giving roddick the advantage, and very few players can produce those shots like marcos.

Nevertheless Andy won 1 point more overall (117-116). That's it.

That's poor consolation. It means, then, that he'll never change anything because he thought he was so great out there. He wasn't; he failed to make adjustments and he does so often when playing someone who refuses to bend over and take it in the ass from him.

Come on, Andy, even this is the wrong attitude. You've got to think that you could have done so much better or you'll stay in the same position and not improve.

Baghdatis gave Federer grief at the USO two years ago but Federer made the necessary adjustments on order to counteract his great play. Unfortunately Andy does not the alternative game plans so he ends up looking like a fish out of water. Really it is quite embarrassing to see him looking so clueless out there when he's he supposed to be one of the best players in the world, and tragically, this is happening too often.

01-22-2006, 04:17 PM
I'm happy for Baghdatis, but the fact is, anyone capable of returning Roddick's serve can, and probably will, beat him. I have know idea why P-Mac kept insisting Baghdatis was covering more ground than Roddick. Heck, much of the match he'd only have to take one or two steps during a rally while dumbass was way behind the baseline running to-and-fro and up for the occasional dropshot. Further, Roddick is brain-dead on his serve. He hit about 4 slice aces, and one unreturnable jammer. Other than that, it was, "Let's see if you can handle my heat?"

Roddick is such a dumbass.

the Bikini Brigade was definitely not as vociferous last night, that's for sure.

i think that at some point in the 3rd set when Bagman defended 2 break points, and then hit his 9th ace, Andy realized that he was not the pushover he had pretended to be in the second set while he was playing possum and just resting. after this Andy became increasingly tentative and defensive.

01-22-2006, 06:42 PM
Judging from the last couple of posts, Roddick is getting tons of flak for this one.

I don't think Roddick was that bad. He's a bit of a one trick pony, lacking aggressiveness off the baseline, but this time it was just that Baghdatis was too good for him. Some of Baghdatis' passing shots were jaw-droppingly good, plain and simple. His footwork is astonishing - as was the way he managed to return quite a few of Roddick's first serves. Once Baghdatis got more consistent and made virtually no more UEs, Roddick was done for - as almost any other player on the tour would be, save perhaps more versatile players like Federer or Agassi.

If Baghdatis keeps playing like this, we're talking finals for sure, and once he gets there, who knows.

Andy might have hurt himself from the beginning of the match by being overconfident. I remember in the early first set PMac (I think) made a comment about Roddick indicating that Baghdatis was weak on his back hand side and that Roddick would be attacking it. I didn't see what Roddick did myself but the first thought that came to my mind was Fish versus Massu at the Olympics. It pissed me off mightily when Fish moutherd to his camp "He's tired. He's tired". That was so assholish, as if he presumed he had it in the bag. Oh, well. We all know how that went and I wondered if the same would happen to Andy at that point but didn't think it would.

PMac also noted that Baghdatis was tired in the 2nd set and was clearly hopeful that Roddick would take advantage of that. He even insinuated that Baghdatis might slacken off after the third set because of it and Roddick would then be able to take advantage of the situation. That didn't happen either.

They are just too presumptuous for my liking. I suppose that's an indication of their lack of respect for other players or the blind love they have for Roddick. And Agassi, in many cases.

And of course when Baghdatis served for it, he had to, absolutely had to mention that he was going to have to earn the match because Roddick wouldn't give it to him. Too late, PMAC.

You know, I'm not a fan of Roddick's by any stretch of the imagination and I don't like seeing him win because he can be very haughty at times, but when he's losing, especially to Federer, he looks so small and pitiful that I can't help feeling sorry for him.

You don't like him but you don't like seeing him lose (to someone playing better) either? :confused:

I like Roddick but Baghdatis played a high quality entertaining match, so I'm totally fine with it.

Someone upthread made a good point. Everyone everywhere is talking about Andy this and Andy that. Baggy is a Far More Talented Player than Andy, and played a vey good match. Andy recognized that he was in the presence of a superior player, and got paralyzed by self-doubt.

But we should be Praising Baghdatis & Welcome Him to the Top 50. In 2-3 yrs. when he's developed his body & put together his game more, he should be awesome. In the meantime let's hope espn shows lots of his matches so we can enjoy his growth. He has so much game to grow into. He won serving under 50%!!

Hopefully this website will join the Celebration by at least giving Baggy his own forum :)

Marcos was too good and played very intelligently and when he got into the rallies was dominant and as for Roddick, initially he seemed like he would just coast through this one and he got what he deserved and was outplayed, though he didn't play that badly in an overall context.

Baghdatis returned well and was getting some great acceleration through his forehand side and opened up Roddick on court and exposed his limited game, and as for the Duck, he was outplayed and knew that.

Andy might have hurt himself from the beginning of the match by being overconfident. I remember in the early first set PMac (I think) made a comment about Roddick indicating that Baghdatis was weak on his back hand side and that Roddick would be attacking it. ...
actually Pat said that Baggy was weak on the FOREHAND but conceded that he had an awesome BACKHAND, especially down the line.

PMac also noted that Baghdatis was tired in the 2nd set and was clearly hopeful that Roddick would take advantage of that. He even insinuated that Baghdatis might slacken off after the third set because of it and Roddick would then be able to take advantage of the situation. That didn't happen either.
i agree. but that was Pat wishing out loud for his boy, not expressing an opinion.

They are just too presumptuous for my liking. I suppose that's an indication of their lack of respect for other players or the blind love they have for Roddick. And Agassi, in many cases.
point taken. i think that Andy was supposed to be the next great thing. it's starting to look like he's not.

And of course when Baghdatis served for it, he had to, absolutely had to mention that he was going to have to earn the match because Roddick wouldn't give it to him. Too late, PMAC.
yes because it's not over til it's over and no-one expected Andy to just fold like a wet napkin. not even his detractors.

You know, I'm not a fan of Roddick's by any stretch of the imagination and I don't like seeing him win because he can be very haughty at times, but when he's losing, especially to Federer, he looks so small and pitiful that I can't help feeling sorry for him.
yes it is sad to see him lose. but not to Federer bec EVERYONE (just about) loses to Federer so this doesn't sadden me at all.

he was meltdown Andy who let bitch fans in the stands dictate how the match was going to go.i think you'll find Baghdatis's FH dictated how the match was going to go..
andy can always console himself by going to dinner with his bikini girls whilst Marcos and the 'sweaty gang' can enjoy a QF match ;)

Good job Marcos! Had I been there, I would have been hanging out with the Greek contingent and going out of my head crazy, too. Gotta support my people, you know. :)
