Ancic had was too tired in the second set but that isn't Baghdatis' fault

Baghdatis was too good from the beginning. Simply the better overall player. Credits to him.

he was mad on himself for the mistakes that he made in the 9the game of the first set (he has made 4 mistakes in that game and thatswhy he lost the match, a typical choker)

but i can't be mad on Ancic so win Mumbai:yeah:

Wah, the sound on my stream cut out right as they got the trophies. Blah.

Ancic looks about 14 yet towers over Marcos. That cracks me up.

Well- I only woke up in time to watch the last game from 30-15, but congrats to Marcos! :D Good luck to Mario in his doubles final.

I have to say that the trophy ceremony was a little awkward and Marcos looked a little confused at time, it was kind of cute. :)

The race for what will prolly be the 8th and final place in the Tennis Masters Cup is going to be very close now between Baghdatis and Blake.

Hopefully Baghdatis does well leading up to and including the Paris Masters so he can make the trip to Shanghai.

I'd much rather see Baghdatis there than Blake.

BTW, Baghdatis will now be #8 in the rankings and Blake down to #9 so will Baghdatis also bypass Blake in the race?

Thanks.

Well done on your 1st title and of course there are the same people calling him Ancichoke, yet love him when he wins. Can't when you are outplayed and of course it seems to be forgotten that his first tournament in a few months and he made the final, that alone is a good performance.

It's not like Ancic lost to Arthurs or Moodie out there.

It was pretty much standing still looking very :eek:. Then he looked confused through most of the ceremony. :D Very sweet, though. I wish I could have heard his speech...stupid streams.

It was kind of subdued. After Marcos' ball went out he looked towards his box, did a fist pump and then did his kissing necklace and crossing thing. But he looked a little in shock.

However, when he sat down in his chair and was aked to sign his camera, he let out one of his huge smiles, tugged on his ear (?) and grinned again.

Yes.Marcos has passed Blake in the race and is now #8. :bounce: :D I think though that he's only 5 points ahead of blake!!

Congrats to Baggy, but was Ancic really that bad, or did he just get outplayed???

Apemant

It's not like Ancic lost to Arthurs or Moodie out there.

Precisely. Baggy played very good, if Ancic wasn't in a bad shape it would have been a great match. Anyway, I'm sure we will see more of them in the future.

I personally don't think it had anything to do with choking; Baggy was rock solid even if the 1st set and Ancic must have felt he had no energy to raise his game enough to beat Baggy. It's understandable that he sort of mentally gave it up. Fighting with a spear against a battle tank is not heroism, it's stupidity. ;)

Clara Bow
09-17-2006, 12:51 PM
I wish I could have heard his speech...stupid streams.

He said that winning his first title was "cool," thanked his coach, the sponsors, etc.... even thanked the cover bands, and congratualted Mario on having a good tournament and his come back from injury.

Good job Marcos but Mario, what happened? It was so nice seeing you in the final but that wasn't such a great performance. But to be fair, this was your first tournament back so it's a good result. Good luck for the rest of the year!

Dimitra
09-17-2006, 12:53 PM
Thanx Kalliopeia and Clara bow for describing :yeah: !!:D ;)

Awww..isn't he sweet!! :smooch: lol..aahh..I am a sucker for his smiles lol :p

09-17-2006, 12:54 PM
Yes.Marcos has passed Blake in the race and is now #8. :bounce: :D I think though that he's only 5 points ahead of blake!!

blake has no chance over baggy because baggy`s five best countable results are almost empty(now 4 more) and blake`s only chance is excellent masters results.

That was adorable. Not to sound twee or anything but that guy defines lighting up a room with that smile.

So very true. And not to sound twee myself but he reminds me a lot of Guga in the sense that his smile really transforms his face.

Solid performance from Baghdatis, but Ancics fh didnt work today. 1st serve ratio could also have been better, but its his first tourney after the injury, so overall a very good performance this week.

mario :sad: looked tired out there today. baghdatis played well, but mario was no where near his best. playing so many matches (singles and doubles) in only 7 days after being off for 2 months was probably a bit overwhelming

Congrats Marcos on the first title, I am sure there will be others to follow. The last two winners of this event went on to win a slam the following year, I hope the trend continues :D Now Marcos has a good motivation to try for the TMC, it will be great if he makes it there.

Mario did well on his first tournament after his injury, he has chances for a top-10 year end ranking.

I'm really happy for Marcos - I always found it strange he made it to the finals of Australia and semis of Wimbledon before even winning a tour title.

He's undoubtedly one of the good guys on the tour who you can't help but appreciate having around so I'm happy he's getting some good results and that crucial first title.

too bad i couldnt see how he reacted when he won the open

Great for Marcos, hopefully he'll continue this form through the rest of the year. He kind of disappeared after that fantastic showing in Melbourne, re-emerged at Wimbledon and now this.
I hope he makes it to Shanghai, it will be nice to have young guys against the "new veterans", Federer, hopefully Andy, Ivan, etc.
