This is what the draw looks like.

BULGARIA - CYPRUS

Enev - Kallias
Kanev - Baghdatis
Kushev/Traykov - Baghdatis/Koutrouzas
Enev - Baghdatis
Kanev - Kallias

Baghdatis would be Marcos.Petros is not playing.

Go Cyprus, this time we have a very good chance!!!

Petros Baghdatis may play doubles.

It all depends on the first two singles matches....if Cyprus win both then the coach will risk the doubles....

Petros is a nice guy and a fairly good player....

Well, we are off to Plovdiv on Thursday (all 3 of us) ...hopefully. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone else going as no Cypriots want to risk travelling HELIOS after last summer's accident, so maybe the charter flight will be cancelled after all. The Federation has arranged team transport with Olympic which costs 50% more and takes 12 hours to get there and 12 to get back (due to Athens stop-overs) instead of the normal 2 hour flight. Apparently Plovdiv is nice, if you can pronounce it correctly...
Can we do the Mexican wave with 3 people?

The Marcos-Kanev match started,it was on Cuprus TV.Marcos was 2-1 but they had to stop playing because it was raining.The court looked very heavy,slippery and dangerous.On TV it says play will resume when rain stops.Personally i think Bulgarians shouldn't have chosen outdoor clay
this time of the year.I'm very worried for Marcos getting injured playing
in these conditions.

followed by the Kallias-Kushef match and after two hours rest, the doubles match starts.All this weather permitting.I looked up the DC rules and regulations and i think
this is against the rules.Personally i was looking forward to this tie but now all I want is for this to finish quickly.

04-11-2006, 11:28 AM
Ανάμικτα συναισθήματα άφησε στην αποστολή της Εθνικής μας η εμπειρία της Βουλγαρίας. Από τη μια η απογοήτευση για την ήττα με 3-2 και την ευκαιρία που χάθηκε για να διεκδικήσουμε την άνοδο στην Α' κατηγορία του Davis Cup, από την άλλη η ικανοποίηση για την προσπάθεια που κατέβαλαν οι διεθνείς μας, αλλά και η αγανάκτηση για την προκλητική συμπεριφορά των Βούλγαρων και την πλήρη έλλειψη σεβασμού, δημιουργούν ένα παράξενο μίγμα συναισθημάτων.

Ο ομοσπονδιακός προπονητής Γιάννος Χατζηγεωργίου έκανε σοβαρές καταγγελίες και όχι άδικα, αφού κάποια πράγματα ήταν εξόφθαλμα και έγιναν με τις... ευλογίες των διοργανωτών και των -αν είναι δυνατό- Βούλγαρων διαιτητών! "Είμαι πολύ ευχαριστημένος από τους παίκτες μου. Αυτά τα παιδιά τα έδωσαν όλα, είχαν πάθος και έπεισαν τους πάντες ότι το Davis Cup είναι για κάποιους υπεράνω και της προσωπικής καριέρας. Η αναβολή της Παρασκευής (σ.σ. λόγω βροχής) μας έβλαψε, αφού αγωνιστήκαμε με δύο παίκτες σε διάστημα δύο ημερών, αντίθετα με τους Βούλγαρους. Είναι ενδεικτικό ότι ο Φώτος Καλλίας έπαιξε συνολικά 8.5 ώρες, ενώ προερχόταν από τραυματισμό και στο τέλος έπαιζε με κράμπες. Παρ' όλα αυτά, φτάσαμε κοντά, ειδικά στο διπλό, καταφέραμε να το "γυρίσουμε", όμως έγινε ό,τι έγινε για να μην κερδίσουμε...".
"Δε χάσαμε δίκαια"
Στη συνέχεια, αναφέρθηκε σε πράγματα που μόνο στα ευγενές άθλημα του τένις δε συναντά κανείς. "Ξέρω πως είναι να αγωνίζεσαι εκτός έδρας και είναι δεκτό να υπάρχει κερκίδα. Το παιγνίδι όμως δεν ήταν τίμιο. Οι Βούλγαροι χρησιμοποίησαν όλα τα μέσα για να μας κερδίσουν. Παρενοχλούσαν τόσο τους παίκτες, όσο και εμένα, ρίχνοντάς μας αντικείμενα (τσίχλες και άλλα) και γιουχαΐζοντας, κάτι που αντιτίθεται στους κανονισμούς όταν παίζεται ο πόντος. Μέχρι και παίκτες (σ.σ. Κάνεφ) το έκαναν! Κατάφεραν να μας εκνευρίζουν, λέγοντάς μας "Τούρκους", ενώ και η διαιτησία ήταν απαράδεκτη. Για παράδειγμα, ο Ένεφ, στο παιχνίδι με τον Φώτο, σέρβιρε πατώντας συνεχώς τη γραμμή, όμως η παράβαση δόθηκε μόνο δύο φορές!(The game wasnt fair. The bulgarians used every mean to win. They were throwing stuff to our player and to me(coach) Even the players(kanef) were doing it. They were calling us Turks and the referee were unacceptable.Enef against kallias was stepping the line in his service multiple times but they only gave it fault 2 times). Ξέρουμε να χάνουμε, όμως χρησιμοποιήθηκαν όλα τα μέσα για να μας κλέψουν τη νίκη. Μας ενοχλεί ότι έγιναν 30 φορές παρατηρήσεις τόσο στην κερκίδα, όσο και στους παίκτες για να σταματήσουν, όμως δε δόθηκε ποτέ οδηγία να αποχωρήσει ο οποιοσδήποτε ενοχλητικός... Ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ στον κόσμο που μας στήριξε, τους φοιτητές που σπουδάζουν εδώ στη Βουλγαρία. Δυστυχώς δεν τους ικανοποιήσαμε, όμως είναι καλό που το άθλημα αρχίζει επιτέλους να παίρνει την προβολή και το ενδιαφέρον που του αξίζει".

Ξύλο στα αποδυτήρια
Κατά την απόσυρση των ομάδων, δημιουργήθηκε επεισόδιο, όταν ο Κάνεφ επιχείρησε να βιαιοπραγήσει κατά διεθνών μας. Το λόγο ζήτησε ο Πέτρος Παγδατής, ο οποίος χτυπήθηκε από τον Βούλγαρο! Το επεισόδιο αναφέρθηκε στη Βουλγάρα διαιτητή, η οποία είπε ότι θα καταγγείλει και τις δύο ομάδες (!), κάτι που σημαίνει ότι απειλούμαστε με τιμωρία παικτών ή πρόστιμο...(Kaned tried to hit the cypriot players. Eventually he hit marcos brother, Petros. The incident was told to the bulgarian referee, who said that she will make an official accusation for both teams(!!!)




Anw, i saw the game live on tv and i have to say that the linesmen who were Bulgarians were unacceptable. We saw amazing things from them. Thanks god we were playing on clay so the umpire saw most of the wrong calls of them. But in the doubles they really gave the game to their countryman players. I havent see anything like that in my life. Its ok, when they come in cyprus in the future they will se the opposite site of the coin.

We had a good time in Plovdiv despite the downpour on Friday.

We lost because we stupidly gave away the doubles and because Photos was not fit to play 3 matches...Many discussions took place amongst us whether Photos shouldn't have played only doubles and let Petros or Christopher play the two singles matches...a 3-2 win would have been enough.

I don't think the Bulgarian crowd were as bad as we like to make out. In fact, I wish our younger supporters (mainly students) and members of our team (including and especially Marcos), not to use again abusive and bad language chants as they did in Bulgaria. I was not proud of their behaviour.

As for line-judges, it's true somebody should have explained to them what is foot-fault...

Yet again it's all on the doubles...I will be violently sick if we have a repeat of the match with Bulgaria. Marcos was serving for the match in the doubles for what would have surely won the tie for Cyprus. He lost his serve, lost the tie-break and the final set 6-0 and the following day we ended up losing the tie 3-2...

Better than yesterday! Arrived at 12 to the courts but tere was no practise until 4. So me and my friend went to a mall(coz we live far away from the club so we couldnt go back home) and got some cheering gear. She did a poster and we wore big yellow hats ang got mop ends to use as pom poms :P
We went back to the club and we were coloring aour posters as The cyprus team walked in! Marcos took a look and said oh nice and a thumbs up :D
Baggy won his first match in straight sets but his brother lost the next match but we were still cheering him on. Every five minutes marcos and christopher gave us a thumbs up and smiled! Ater the match, marcos ran to the locker room as about 150 kids followed him shpouting marcos marcos!! He finally got in and his brother came out to me and my friend and asked us if we wanted anything signed and we gave him out poster and he ligned ' i love u too' The poster said i love baggy. Then we froze for and hour!

After their victory, they brought out a big cake and the egyptian coach was giving a speech that no one listened too because all the kids wanted an autograph from marcos and his brother. All i heard from the speech was thank you!! It was strange that marcos didnt give a speech. They congratulated the egyptian players who were playing well and again marcos was bombarded with a wave of kids as he went back to the hotel. I sneekily followed them to the hotel but they didnt see me :p

Yes and another thing: Marcos. That was really the key and mind you he was not playing at full gear, just enough to win. Well done Cyprus and congratulations. :bigclap:

Also, well done Egypt :hatoff: . Our team did not SOOOOOOOOO go down. 3-2 is a reasonable result. :)

Anyway, it was great seeing him play live. He is very pleasant overall, specially on court. He knows how to win the audience. It's not just being a pro but rather being genuine, himself. He didn't sign many autographs and ran to the locker room as fast as possible. Many kids were disappointed but Petros made up for it :D . He is as sweet as Marcos. Really nice family. :)

I lost my voice after so much screaming the day before and had a terrible backache. I couldn't imagine sitting on those nasty chairs again for 6 hours so I didn't go. I like Baggy a lot but am not obsessed with him like some people :p :lol: . Besides, Tafa had to practice for the upcoming tourney and we were tight for time. :)

BTW, I don't have a sister. She's one of my best friends and her name is not Dina, Dina. :D

Ok im uploading pics now..

I have a short report for the day they left though and u might like it..
After they won, they were leaving the club and i was looking for christopher and marcos and the rest of them to say goodbye. I didnt catch marcos but i cought chriss and we said goodbye and he told me they were to leave the next day at 2 or 3 pm so if i wanted to pass y the hotel, i could. So Me and hana went the next day and Marcos was sitting in the lobby on the phone and he smiled and waved. the rest had just finished breakfast so chris came and talked to us and marcos as well when he finished talkng on the phone (camille i bet :p ) He asked us y we were cheering for cyprus and my friend said shes british (she really is) and i said the lamest thing :eek: "i hate to see marcos lose!" He said thank u thank u. Sitting in the lobby, they asked us a few questions about egypt and the good places to visit and stuff like that. I asked them about Cyprus and chris is also form Limassol and theyve been best friends for ages. For some reason he asked if i could peak french and i said i could understand but i was too shy to ask if he spoke to camille in french or what (can somone verify?). us random questions like that! I was in a hurry and so were they so tha was the end of it :) I wont complain that the left, i'll take the good memories and save them until egypt plays cyprus again!haha! I said goodbye and c u in madrid and he said hopefully i wont be injured. So thats Marcos. As nice as we all think he is :worship:

Piks-Terrible quality i know! Theyre not worth it but i just uploaded them anyway ;)

My prediction is that Baghdatis will win easily today, Kallias will lose today, M.Baghdatis/P.Baghdatis will lose in the doubles but Baghdatis and Kallias will win their singles matches on Sunday.

Kallias plays Kanev on Sunday who is ranked in the 900's while Kallias is ranked in the 600's. Kanev is having a bad year whereas Kallias is having a good year as far as results are concerned.

I'll take pictures to post here :p

According to Cypriot newspapers Andrew Thomas will be playing under the Cypriot flag in the coming years. The 17 year old Andrew Thomas, born in Sydney, of Greek Cypriot parents is currently no.23 in the ITF juniors rankings.
Andrew was set to play in last weeks Davis Cup tie but some bureucratic processess could not be completed in time for him to play against Bulgaria.
The chairman of the Cyprus Tennis Federation stated in an interview that provided that there will not be any problems with Andrews current sponsorship deal (expires in July 2008)we may see Andrew competing in the American Open under the Cypriot flag.

Here are some links refering to the 17 year old Andrew Thomas:

If he keeps it up and they manage to take him for the Davis Cup team then having Marcos, Kallias and Thomas will make a great team :banana:

We will definitely make it to Group I in 2-3 years with such a team :p

Baghdatis won't play against Portugal

http://www.daviscup.com/news/newsarticle.asp?articleid=14618

Baghdatis pulls out
Marcos Baghdatis has notified the Cyprus Tennis Federation (CTF) that he won’t be making himself available for selection for his countries tie against Portugal on July 18 - 20.

Having previously knocked out Slovenia, Cyprus, who rely almost entirely on Baghdatis when they compete in the Davis Cup, they take on favourites Portugal, with a place in the Europe/Africa Zone Group 1 up for grabs.

World no. 25 Baghdadis made an early exit from Wimbledon this week after his defeat by Feliciano Lopez.
He was quoted in Cyprus's Politis daily earlier in the week as saying he was pulling out of the Davis Cup because of other commitments, but would not be quitting the team indefinitely.

"This difficult decision was taken after serious consideration because of my heavy schedule," the paper said, quoting a written statement from the player.

Baghdatis is due to participate in the U.S. Open, the Beijing Olympics and tournaments in Montreal and Cincinnati.

"I believe that his decision has been the result of his disappointment of having exited Wimbledon in the early stages but also because of his slip down the ATP rankings", said CTF President Filios Christodoulou.

"This is definitely a shock for us because we didn't expect a decision like this from Marcos. Had we known about this six months ago then we could have maybe arranged other alternatives but with ten days to go before we travel to Portugal, it has definitely come as a blow."

"I respect his decision despite the disappointment."

I thought it was strange that they would show it in Greece. Tennis doesn't get that much attention, as mostly Eurosport and Supersport show it sometimes, but I wouldn't expect this tie to be shown. :topic:, I know, but where are you in Greece? Just curious;)

Νίκη με τη βοήθεια του γιατρού
http://tennisnews.gr/images/news_images/Bagdatis/marcos-doctor.jpg

Συνεχίζοντας την παράδοση που θέλει τον Μάρκο Παγδατή να κερδίζει σε αγώνες Davis Cup, ο κύπριος πρωταθλητής, παίζοντας με τεράστια ψυχικά αποθέματα, κέρδισε μετά απο ένα συγκλονιστικό ματς, τον πρώτο αγώνα της ημέρας σε πέντε σετ, 6-7, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.


Ο Μάρκος, ο οποίος υπέφερε απο πόνους στο γόνατο στο 5-3 του πρώτου σετ, έχασε το πρώτο σετ στο "tie-break" απέναντι στο Ιρλανδό Λούκ Σόρενσεν. Το δεύτερο σετ τέλειωσε υπέρ του Παγδατή με σκορ 6-4, μετά και απο ιατρικό "time-out" στο 1-0.



Στο τρίτο σετ, η απόδοση του Ιρλανδού ανέβηκε κατακόρυφα, παίζοντας πολύ σταθερό και γρήγορο τένις, κερδίζοντας και το σετ με 6-3, μετά και απο δεύτερο ιατρικό "time-out" για τον Παγδατή. Στο τέταρτο και πέμπτο σετ, ο Μάρκος κατάφερε να επιβληθεί αν και δεν μπορούσε να κινηθεί όπως θα ήθελε μέσα στο γήπεδο και πήρε την πρώτη νίκη για την Κύπρο κερδίζοντας τα 2 τελευταία σετ με 7-5 και 6-4, δίνοντας το έναυσμα για πανηγυρισμούς στο στο κεντρικό γήπεδο του Εθνικού Κέντρου Τένις.

Σε δηλώσεις του ο Μάρκος τόνισε την κρισιμότητα του αυριανού αγώνα, κάνοντας έκκληση προς τον κόσμο να έρθει στο γήπεδο και να υποστηρίξει την Κυπριακή ομάδα, στο δύσκολο αγώνα του διπλού, ο οποίος σίγουρα θα είναι και ο πλέον καθοριστικός αγώνας, αγώνας ο οποίος ίσως κρίνει και τον νικητή της συνάντησης.

"...σίγουρα δεν έπαιξα το καλύτερο μου τένις σήμερα επειδή όπως είδατε υπέφερα κατά διαστήματα απο αρκετούς πόνους στο πόδι...το πρόβλημα στο αριστερό γόνατο δεν ήταν πολύ σοβαρό όμως δεν μου επέτρεπε να κινηθώ σωστά και να παίξω γρήγορο τένις...η αστάθεια στο πόδι σίγουρα επιδρούσε αρνητικά στην αυτοπεποίθηση μου μέσα στον αγώνα...οι καιρικές συνθήκες ήταν πολύ δύσκολες στην αρχή και έφεραν και την ανάλογη κούραση σε κάποια διαστήματα...ο αντίπαλος μου έπαιξε πολύ καλό τένις, χωρίς βεβιασμένα λάθη απο τη βασική γραμμή και σίγουρα έπρεπε να βρώ τις λύσεις για να κερδίσω τον αγώνα...έχω αρκετό χρόνο μπροστά μου να ξεκουραστώ για τον πολύ σημαντικό αγώνα του διπλού αύριο, τον οποίο αν κερδίσουμε, θα πάρουμε σοβαρό προβάδισμα...ευελπιστώ οτι όλος ο κόσμος θα βρεθεί δίπλα μας στο Εθνικό Κέντρο, υποστηρίζοντας την ομάδα μας..." δήλωσε ο Πρωταθλητής μας στην διάσκεψη τύπου.


Η Κύπρος παίζει με την Ιρλανδία στο δεύτερο γύρο του Davis Cup αυτό το Σαββατοκύριακο. Ο Μάρκος επιστρέφει μετά τον τραυματισμό του στον αγώνα με τον Raemon Sluiter στο Ordina Open. Ένας τραυματισμός που πόνεσε πολύ την ψυχολογία του Μάρκου, αλλά του έδωσε και τη δυνατότητα να ανασυνταχτεί.


Ο Φώτος Καλλίας θα υποδεχτεί ως δεύτερος παίκτης στα μονά για την Κύπρο και θα αντιμετωπίσει τον Ιρλανδό Conor Niland. Ο Μάρκος και ο Καλλίας θα ενώσουν τις δυνάμεις τους στα διπλά εναντίον του James McGee και του Colin O’Brien, πριν από τους επαναληπτικούς των μονών την Κυριακή, όπου ο Μάρκος θα παίξει και πάλι πρώτος.

I watched the first match too and Rares didn't play too bad but he hit loads of unforced errors at times.
I wonder why they didn't allocate Kallias to play against Mammoun instead of Rares.

Marcos said that he would rather win Wimbledon than Davis Cup :speakles:

What did you expect? There is absolutely no chance he ever wins Davis Cup without a second top 100 player playing for Cyprus. To win Wimbledon there is a very small chance like 0.5%. If he keeps playing like this he won't come close to winning anything.

does anyone know why baghdatis isn't representing cyprus against portugal in the davis cup.
cyprus and currently 2-0 down in rubbers and unfortunately can't win without marcos!

Baghdatis#1
07-11-2010, 02:05 AM
Now it's 3-0 :sobbing:
He said that he wouldn't play and I understand his decision. Kallias has a serious injury and he can't play. Without him, Baggy would win singles but Cyprus would lose doubles. But then again the tie is on clay in Portugal, so who knows if Marcos would even win both singles matches especially since he's in horrible form. Plus, Marcos needs some time off to find his form again and he really needed a rest since he's played almost every week since the beginning of the year :shrug:. He's only had two weeks off this whole year (not counting two week tournaments where he lost in the first week) :shrug:

jpatatsos
07-12-2010, 04:42 AM

Cyprus would've lost anyways because I think Photos Kallias retired so Marcos wouldn't have a great doubles partner :sad:

But yeah Cyprus lost 3-0 :sad:
But Cuzdriorean won 11 games against Kellner, great for him :yeah:. I remember last year against Egypt he played really well and in the end lost 3-6 4-6 5-7 or something like that, but he was still really great :yeah:
