The poor run of results for Baghdatis continues. Congrats to Mirnyi though :yeah:

Baghdatis has just passed Monfils as the dumbest player in the circuit.

Put the ball into Mirnyi when he is at the net is suicide! :haha:

Passing shot? Anyone? How many net winners made Mirnyi? 50?

Pathetic performance from Marcos against a Mirnyi who was struggling on his serve :smash:. Wasted so many opportunities! Oh well, I hope he gets his ass to the practice courts right away :lol:.

Max came to the net 90 times :silly:. Classic claycourt encounter :lol:.

And Marcos is still that Marcos from Jan 2006. But the one that lost 6:2 6:2 to Nieminen in Auckland... :tape:

It's the revenge of the big servers. Karlovic wins Houston. Mirnyi wins Monte Carlo. Guccione wins Rome. Kendrick wins Hamburg and then Rusedski comes out of retirement to win Roland Garros!

I'm surprised Baghdatis is quite so useless on clay.

He only won 3 matches on the dirt last year and on a performance like that, you wonder if he'll manage to surpass that this year.

Baghdatis is really quite dreadful lately.

:hatoff: Max. Now I've got a reason to keep watching the MC scorelines.

Marcos has never been a claycourter and will never be. I'm sure he'll be all right when grass comes around.

Let's see now if Murray can eventually get some results on the red stuff.

Baghdatis is Mr. Inconsistency.

Quite the contrary, hes consistently shithouse this year.

Great job for Max to dig in and take this one. Bravo mate, good for you- hope to see another one! :)

Meh, not sure what to say about Baggy, but...not making progress, that's for sure. Very disappointing run of time in '07- not good.

Huge surprise there, and for those who are not aware of it Max can play on clay. It will never be Marcos's best surface but the important thing is to sort out the issues with his working ethic. That is, if he wants to do so.

Marcos please do something or say goodbye to top 20 :sad:

Marcos needs to get his shit together, he is starting to look like 2006 was a fluke.

I would still it blame it on The De Villier Recipe for Destruction.

Ok well I want the Marcos from Mid Jan to early Feb 2006.

You're not alone :sad:

I dont understand why Marcos is so bad on clay. Didn't he grow up training on clay? :confused:

Shocking win by Mirnyi :o

was a terrible match from Marcos...Mirnyi didn't have to do much--even the simplest passing shots were missed. It was painful to watch :(

Max was serving under 50 percent and still won in straight sets. The Beast has defeated Guga (when he was RG champ) and Moya when he was near his peak on clay, yet he loses to that claycourt clown Ginepri on the surface.

As for Baghdatis, well he looks almost as miserable on court as Gaudio and that's just not him.

Ever since Marcos lost to Monfils its been downhill from there. Not that Gael is currently doing any better.

I think the bagels given to him by Monfils and Del Potro has hurt him even more so then we can imagine..

Uhh? Immediately after losing to Monfils he won a tournament and reached a final in consecutive weeks.

Dubai was the start of his struggle.

Yeah, I agree. I've always thought that he has reasonable ground strokes, which shoul work well on clay. But it's parobably a mental thing now.
