baghdatis' apparently psycho supporters

"Marco Baghdatis’s raucous band of Greek and Cypriot supporters have already set their sights on Andy Roddick ahead of their fourth round clash on Sunday. “Credit to them. They even came and tried to heckle me a little bit today at the end of my match. I said to them ‘Man, you guys can’t show your hand before the end of it’. You know they are going to do everything they can to help their guy,” Roddick said…"

LOL, sounds funny!!

About these Greek/Cypriotic group of supporters, I also thought that they went a bit overboard, especially in the match against Stepanek of which I saw the fifth set, when they cheered and applauded every single serve fault of Stepanek. Doing this so consistently, that's a bit shabby in my opionion, but okay, I've seen worse things a already... :shrug:

I don't dislike Baghdatis, but I want Andy to win this and to progress far in the tournament, so I hope he slams down a ton of 140mph aces to make them shut up at the right time when they become too annoying! :) ;)

It's (maybe?) an americanism--you can't show your hand of cards when you are playing poker or another card game to your competitors because it handicaps your own game.

I wondered the same, but I think by this expression he wanted to tell them they (the Baghdatis fans) shouldn't show him their 'strategy' before the end of this match

lol... I like this kind of behaviour because it certainly adds to the atmosphere of the match. It's not like they are going to invade the court and stab Roddick's back, like certain German did a while ago (no offense to Germans, it is just a particular example).

And apart from rare Davis Cup ties, top players like Roddick, Hewitt, Federer and Safin never face the wilder crowds. They don't play in South-America or Morocco at the tour. So it's fun to see how they can handle this different kind of pressure, this football match atmosphere. :p

People in england were booing his double faults and errors when I saw him at queens. That asshole brings it all on himself, he pisses the fans off, the players, and the umpires. You could tell greg rusedski wanted to knock him out during the match against step. Booing double faults for that guy is preety tame compared to his antics on court.

I agree with Rosie. Cheering for your favourite is one thing and lack of respect to the opponent is another. That's why I really admire the Australian public behaviour in general, even when Hewitt is plyaing.

Jan. 20, 2006
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

MELBOURNE, Australia -- A boisterous group of students from a small Minnesota college has been making Andy Roddick feel right at home at the Australian Open.

Along with the Greek, Swedish and other national contingents that make annual sojourns to Melbourne Park, the patriotic undergrads from Gustavus Adolphus College have quickly earned a reputation for their fervent support that includes a variety of cheerleader-like chants during changeovers.

Roddick embraced their support during his 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 rout Friday of France's Julien Benneteau.

The fans had something of a running conversation with Roddick. After he broke Benneteau in the opening game of the third set, Roddick told them: "I got something for you real soon."

As promised, he whacked the ball up to them after finishing off the match with his 17th ace.

They drew the attention of TV commentator Jim Courier, who asked Roddick which he'd rather have backing him: this tanned group with a number of women who "seem like they spent more on tickets than clothes" or the loud backers of Greek Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, Roddick's next opponent.

"I have a bunch of half-naked women," a smiling Roddick pointed out as Baghdatis fans could be heard cheering out in the concourse. "He has a bunch of men. I know who I'd rather have dinner with me."

Sitting together with three U.S. flags under a broiling sun about halfway up the stands, Roddick's included a row of women in red, blue and silver spangled hats who had "WE (heart) ANDY" spelled out, letter by letter, on their bare stomachs. The men's bare chests read "R-O-D-D-I-C-K."

The students were here as part of a sports ethics class.

While frequently loud and unabashedly supporting Roddick, the group said they're trying to set an example by only cheering for their man and not against his opponent, unlike some fans who have annoyed players by shouting during their service motions.

"We are working on some of the decorum and etiquette, though," said Jaime Gaard, a third-year student at the 2,500-student liberal arts school in St. Peter.

"We're just a rowdy crowd."

Gaard, who said she has been to the U.S. Open and Wimbledon, said she "loved the laid-back etiquette here."

Her older brother played against Roddick when they were juniors, she said.

"We have some home video," she said. "He was so different then. He didn't have the big serve yet."

Brian Laumeyer, 21, said the group ran into Roddick at Sydney airport and wished him luck, "But I don't know if he's put it together that we're the same group."

The students were wrapping up their five days at the Open and lamented that they won't be around to try to outdo Baghdatis' fans.

"It'll be a little quieter here the second week," Gaard sighed.

Exactly! He holds play up like hell! He deliberately throws the ball up and catches it again (many times). He will complain about linecalls, all day long. He will cheer for an opponents error/double fault. He takes as long as he can between points, often over the amount of time allowed.

He is much worse than a player like coria, who people think is bad for that kind of thing

Yes glad you noticed rosie! I forgot to put it myself, he trudges around in a manor that tries to annoy his opponents. But I would have said it differently :devil: he makes these really strange nasty glares/faces at his opponents also (after an opponents error or he wins a point), which considering his good looks is not exactly pleasing for a player.

I really didnt know about his antics until I went to queens. I just always knew him as the facially challenged guy, so I felt sorry for him :eek: :D It was a shock though when seeing him start acting like that! I wanted greg rusedski to hammer him, I have never seen a player act as disruptive as he did on that day. You have to see him live to believe it, alot goes un noticed on TV.

True, that was really scary... but I don't think these guys (or anyone with common sense) will go further than being f**king annoying, but on the other hand the environment they create is way too negative... cheering for your player doesn't mean booing/pissing his rival. I guess some have a problem with understanding that :confused:

Here’s a snippet about that-

The chanting Cypriots clearly got under the skin of Baghdatis' second-round opponent Czech Radek Stepanek, leading to calls from the world No. 54 to tone it down yesterday.

"I spoke to them and I told them to keep it down, don't say anything rude," Baghdatis said smiling.

"Today they were much better. They're just saying, 'Marcos, you're crazy with the white T-shirt. I will never stop singing for you'. Stuff like this."

Should be a fan match tomorrow between two rowdy camps.

Those fans are not really Cypriots, they are Greeks, but they dont have many Greek players, so they also support Cypriots who are of Greek origin. They have a lot of national pride so thats why they wear the Greek colours mainly.

The good thing you can say about this in general terms is, the AO seem to give everyone a fair go! I mean players who usually arent on the big showcourts are getting chance to play on laver, and no one is hogging all the matches on laver :D Players are switched between night and day matches too, so the same players arent taking up those spots.

You're right, those fans are Greek. Its really not strange that they are supporting him as if he were Greek. They probably consider him to be Greek, even though Cyprus is no longer a part of Greece, because he is of Greek descent.

Because both Turkey and Greece believe (fiercely) that Cyprus belongs to each of them. Marcos, as a Greek-Cypriot, is regarded by his Greek fans, and probably regards himself as a Greek and that Cyprus is a part of Greece.
Just as the Turkish citizens of Cyprus regard the island as part of Turkey. It is not like Belgium which simply has two different cultures living in one country, the Flemish and the Walloons (French-speakers) - rather the same as English/French-speaking Canada. UN peacekeepers have been stationed on Cyprus for years to keep peace between the two factions.

Itis weird re roddick. maybe the timing of roddick-marcos is better for cyprus/greece? I wouldn't be surprised if the whole region watches the match live.Wouldn't it be easier for them if it were a night match? Then it'd be at a decent morning hour in Greece/Cyprus. This way, it's right during ESPN's coverage during the US, and in the middle of the night in Europe...

Anyway :D This one is worth staying up for! I havent bothered staying up till 4am to watch any matches so far! Hopefully this second week, we will get alot more worth staying up to see!

I am guessing we should see roddick at about 3.30-4am uk time, providing the bryan clowns make quick work, and davenport doesnt go long like her last match!

I will be on centre court watching this match and as for the subject title, it's true that the cream rises to the top in the Slams and that goes for MTF as well.

As for the Cyprus thing, there is a large Turkish community in Australia and there are differences as the Turkish Cypriots that lived there before 1974 are usually fine with the Greeks, the problem came when they imported people from the mainland to populate the north who were different in mentality from the Turkish Cypriots themselves.

There are a few idiots in that fan group, but what fan group and as for being psycho, thanks for the laugh.

Ah, so, GWH - you are in Australia ? I'd wondered why you hadn't been around, GM has been abandoned of sensibility in your absence, return soon. ;)

I have been doing a lot of things and been at the AO, the good thing is that the matches I want to see are in the afternoon. I mean Baghdatis won't be on to at least 2pm, unless there is a retirement in the other matches and the other match I want to see is last on Vodafone.

GM never had sensibility before I was here and never will. That is just like night follows day.

I have been there before and btw, the 2nd round reports are up and I am just trying to write one up about the 3rd round.

Marcos needs the support and fortunately I was able to get into this match, but I am more interested in the Vodafone matches and the doubles.

that's what i thought at first too, but it did not strike me as a huge revelation for andy that there a some wild cypriot/greek guys cheering for his next opponent.
but it's propaly what he meant

It was just a quip... no deep meaning there. He was just joking with them.

Is anyone watching the match? I don't have cable access at the moment. If you are could you keep us posted online. I really want to hear how Baggy's playing. I presume AR will win, but that aside...Great they're playing in air conditioned arena, as that will offset some of the conditioning gap :)
