Marseille this week for him, Dubai next. I think we can combine these two.

Marseille draw

(1) SODERLING, Robin SWE - BYE
STAKHOVSKY, Sergiy UKR - BOLELLI, Simone ITA
QUALIFIER - LLODRA, Michael FRA
BRANDS, Daniel GER – (7) BAGHDATIS, Marcos CYP

(4) ROBREDO, Tommy ESP - BYE
ZVEREV, Mischa GER - (WC) GUEZ, David FRA
HAJEK, Jan CZE - QUALIFIER
(WC) RUFIN, Guillaume FRA – (6) YOUZHNY, Mikhail RUS

(8) BENNETEAU, Julien FRA - QUALIFIER
KUNITSYN, Igor RUS - SERRA, Florent FRA
CLEMENT, Arnaud FRA - SEPPI, Andreas ITA
BYE – (3) MONFILS, Gael FRA

(5) SIMON, Gilles FRA - ROCHUS, Olivier BEL
QUALIFIER - QUALIFIER
ROCHUS, Christophe BEL - ISTOMIN, Denis UZB
BYE – (2) TSONGA, Jo-Wilfried FRA

With Söderling and Youzhny likely to withdraw or be tired, he has a fantastic draw and a great chance for a big result here. He so has to take it. Dubai will be way tougher with all the great names there and he won't be seeded.

I don't like his draw,no matter how Soderling supposedly will be tired-he seemed pretty hot to me!Hopefully Markos will be able to beat him anyway and please please let the Dubai draw be as good as possiblE!!

Doubles??lol long time we hadn't seen that.

Against Llodra the next match. Should be a straight set win for Baggy but then Soderling will be a very very tough matchup :help:

GL tomorrow!

Great result though :yeah:

Llodra is a brilliant player if he has a good day. I hope he doesn't today.:tape: They will start in a few minutes.

Ivanatis
02-17-2010, 02:17 PM
2-0 for Marcos, there we go.

Ivanatis
02-17-2010, 03:39 PM
6-7 4-4:scared:
that 1st set loss was so unnecessary
Llodra's been serving great so far
and Marcos just fell, but looks like he's fine

Ivanatis
02-17-2010, 03:43 PM
another clean backhand winner from Llodra for the break, that's it probably:crying2:

He had so many opportunities in that 1st set :rolleyes: But I fear it's too late now - Llodra about to serve for the match :sad:

Baghdatis72
02-17-2010, 03:48 PM
He's out. That's a surprise loss by someone who wants to get back to the top 10 :tape: :help:

I have no idea how he managed to lose when he started the match so well.

Ivanatis
02-17-2010, 03:50 PM
I have no idea how he managed to lose when he started the match so well.

He managed it with hitting sth. like 20% 1st serve in that first set.:D

Baghdatis72

That's a new low for his serve :eek:

*Ljubica*
02-17-2010, 03:52 PM
Llodra is always dangerous on fast hardcourts when his serve is working........ and he always plays well at home, so I don't think the loss is so surprising.

Anyway - it's Dubai next week.

Baghdatis#1
02-18-2010, 04:53 AM
Marcos :o
Now that's 2 real losses for the year. I'm not counting Hewitt (he was injured) and Davydenko (Marcos did as good as he could) :p

IKR! :o
If he wants to get back to the top 10, he needs to get a lot of ranking points so he really can't afford to lose in the second round of Marseille against Llodra, even if it is in his home country :shrug:

On to Dubai! :drive:

*Ljubica*

QF vs. Kolya is a must

Marcos is second on court tomorrow http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/495/op.pdf

Totally sh*t time for me as I'll be at work and no livestreams allowed :sad: But the tournament is televised here, so will set the VCR and watch it later.

Good luck Marcos.

Federer is out of the tournament with a lung infection btw.

Ivanatis

Llodra went on to win the tourney. What looked like a good draw turned out as a really bad one.

Llodra went on to win the tourney. What looked like a good draw turned out as a really bad one.

He was the most in form player of the tournament and yet Baggy had to commit suicide to lose the match against him.

cmon beat Somdev

Baghdatis72
02-23-2010, 08:57 PM
If he beats Somdev then Kolya awaits :tape:

Edit: Kolya is out with an injury so Berrer is after Somdev if he goes through :D

Ivanatis
02-24-2010, 01:49 PM
aaaaand he won:D needed 3 sets however

GL vs. Berrer

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 04:05 PM
Congrats Marcos :D Was at work and couldn't follow livescores properly, but seems he got through relatively easily with just that one blip in the second set.

Without Davydenko, this is a REAL opportunity for Marcos to reach a semi final of a 500 event - just hope he can make the most of it, - but not underestimate Berrer who will be fresh and rested.

Ivanatis
02-24-2010, 08:23 PM
Agreed. Berrer will be tough, should be 50:50. Michi is having a great year. Marcos will have a hard time breaking him, but hopefully he will scrape through.

Baghdatis72
02-24-2010, 10:53 PM
Actually Baggy saved 10 break points in the 3rd set so it wasn't as easy as it looked from the 6-1. He can beat Berrer tomorrow.

Pame Baggy :woohoo:

Jelena_78

Good luck to both guys :)

Yeah nice win from Baggy :D

He converted 2 out of 15 break points but it was enough :p

+ 1. I don't know whether to be sad or happy about tomorrow. At the end of the say, one of my favourites will be in the Final, but the other will have lost :sad: Guess I should just be proud of them both.

Marcos played very wll today - I was impressed. Hope it's a good match tomorrow.

Rosie, you're excused for the semi:hug:

Why against Nole though? :rolleyes:. He's my #2 fave :sad:
Pame Marcos! :bounce:

Baghdatis72
02-26-2010, 10:07 AM
Marcos is the outsider in this match. In their 3 encounters Nole has been the winner but Marcos got too close. He can beat him if he takes his chances and convert the break points.

*Ljubica*
02-26-2010, 10:55 AM
Rosie, you're excused for the semi:hug:
Make the final, Marco:rocker2:

:hug: I honestly can't cheer AGAINST either, so can't really cheer FOR either :sad: I just hope it's a great match and that the winner takes the trophy tomorrow :D

Ivanatis

Looks like there's quite a few people on this board who support Marcos and Nole.

Baggy 7-6(2)
and he's up a break in the 2nd

lol baghdatis broke his shoe and someone in his camp threw him a spare

Baghdatis72
02-26-2010, 04:25 PM
He converted 3 out of 16 break point chances and 1 of them was double fault. He is having serious mental issues he needs to sort out if he is ever gonna get where his talent deserves to be.

*Ljubica*
02-26-2010, 05:27 PM
Marcos :hug: He just got tired at the end and ran out of steam. But a semi in an ATP 500 event is no disgrace, and losing in a final set to the World Number 2 is no disgrace either :shrug: I'm pleased for Nole but can't really celebrate right now - that was a hellish match-up for me - didn't really enjoy it at all :sad:

Yeah, he would've won the match if he learned how to convert on BP's! :o

Ivanatis
02-27-2010, 02:08 AM
he would have won it too if he had held his fuckin' serve in the 2nd set:mad:
can't believe he managed to lose this match
he'd better deliver at IW:fiery:

Baghdatis72
02-27-2010, 05:12 AM
To be honest this is uncacceptable by any means. It's the 16th match he loses against Nole, Nadal or Federer and he had 16 break points from which he took only 3 and 1 was a double fault from Nole. He will never go far with a record like this. It's a clear sign of mental weakness and unless he gets therapy from a professional psychologist he will repeat the same chokes forever. The same pattern repeats again and again. He gets loads of break points, misses most of them, breaks after 6-7 chances and gets broken immediately after. To be honest it's frustrating and pathetic.
After carefully examining his break chances it is evident that he loses them because he loses his concentration and the anxiety takes over which leads to a passive gameplay which is not enough to win the point against the top players.

He needs a mental breakthrough and it's up to him to do it. He proved that he has what it takes and he is completely aware of the situation.
