See you in my town, Baghdatis!

Your ass is going to be kicked by some Portuguese foot on clay! :cool:

Baghdatis wasn't looking completely fit, I wasn't watching all the time, but I saw him call the trainer (for his back?).

This was a predictable result, no doubt. Baghdatis showed a little resistance, but that's about it.

Well played by Simone. :yeah:

Oh noo he really lost! I didn't expected to see him lost with this poor score... he hasn't enough preparation on clay, that's why he lost (I suppose). I wish that he will worked enough on grass and go further (in Wimbledon)!

Baghdatis is poor on clay and is just back from injury. An expected result in all honesty. Good that he is back playing tennis and the main thing is remain fit, try and keep motivated and if he can do that the results will follow.

As for Bolelli; still good to get the win and he has a very good draw here. A realistic shot at winning two or three more matches and really raising his ranking.

Expected. :o

First two sets there was some hope, But bags never took his chances. To many errors.

I just hope now he can prepare to defend all of his Grasscourt points (which I expect him to do)

expected one.. for the simple reason that bagho is not so good on clay and is coming back from an injury...

c'mon baghdatis in wimbledon.!!!

He isn't fit at all. Better not to come in RG. He was away from courts to long.

expected but still sad for him. Bolelli is coming along nicely yet another talent to watch

Simone has been one of the most impressive youngsters this clay season and he's nicely affirming the faith I have/had in him.

Unfit Baggy against on form SuperBol who has great clay season, I doubt that anyone expected different outcome.

Expected to anyone that knows their tennis. Obviously these guys don't:

French Open: Baghdatis beaten by little-known Bolelli
http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2008/may/26/baghdatis.out.of.french.open

"Marcos Baghdatis suffered a surprise defeat in the first round of the French Open, losing in three sets to Simone Bolelli of Italy, 6-2, 6-4, 6-2."

How much work would it have been for the journo to just check the bookies odds before the match?

This is bad yeah, but almost as bad was the commentator here in Holland saying Rafa was playing the completely unknown Bellucci :rolleyes:
These guys have tennis for a living and they don't know Bellucci?!

But good win by Bolelli. I saw of the match and he was firing all over the place again. Such big shots all the time. Kinda like Blake but Bolelli is willing to slice sometimes, Blake never slices. I think Bolelli has opponents that fit his game, I wouldn't want to see him playing a very solid guy like Monaco, Robredo, Ferrer etc.

For most of these commentators tennis ends at the ATP tournament level. What's actually worse is when they make comments such as "he has barely played any matches in the last few years", "he has very little match experience" and start wondering whether the player has been injured when they are faced with a player who plays challengers year-round.

It's still better than some commentators here saying that Kuerten has been playing with protected ranking and that he won't win a title in the near future with such display as with PHM. When they saw the farewell ceremony they were :eek:

Baghdatis is very bad for this time and I think he don't defend his points on Wimbledon..... For Bolelli i think Del Potro defeat him, if he don't have injury

Baghdatis off form, and very , very tough opponent this Bolleli. Maybe the toughest non seed.
I saw some parts of the match, and I am really amazed of the skills and shots Simone has.
