Youzhny struggled in his last match so Marcos has a chance :)

quick week:( at least this way he's fresh for Shanghai

10-08-2010, 12:40 AM

10-09-2010, 10:34 AM
missed seeding by two positions, but the draw is still good:

R1 Qualifier
R2 Dolgopolov again or Almagro
R3 Murray who got owned by Ljubo this week

no excuses this week, go Marcos

10-10-2010, 02:56 PM
Chardy in round 1
I smell another early loss:o

10-11-2010, 11:14 AM
He was playing till 3-3 in the first set until it got postponed due to rain delay.

The other games are still continuing so not sure why they are still stopped, perhaps they are on the outside courts or something.

Well I don't think Jeremy Chardy should be easy, but if Marcos plays his normal solid game he should win.
But I don't know really, sometimes I feel like Marcos can beat the best players in the world but also lose to the worst.

10-11-2010, 07:01 PM
Hehe, yeah well its a shame he got knocked out first round, I expected better than that, Chardy beat him convincingly. Smashed him in the 2nd set.
Ahhhh well now we wait for him to get his form back again. :rolleyes:

10-13-2010, 03:23 AM
Horrible :tape:

10-17-2010, 03:51 PM
Marco is not in Stockholm to defend his title, but in Moscow instead.

Stakhovsky, Sergiy (7) vs Russell, Michael
Dolgopolov, Alexandr vs Q
Starace, Potito vs Gabashvili, Teymuraz (WC)
Bye vs Baghdatis, Marcos (4)

10-18-2010, 03:32 AM
Better choice :shrug:
With Federer and Soderling in Stockholm he wouldn't have a chance at defending those points :shrug:

I expect him to do well here. He should reach QF at least. If he loses to Gabashvili or Starace it would be awful :tape:. The QF can be tricky, as he lost to Stakhovsky and Dolgopolov the last time he played each of them so hopefully he faces Russell or Q in the QF, otherwise he'll probably lose :o. I'd be satisfied with SF. Anything other than that would be beyond pathetic, especially since it's indoors :shrug:

10-18-2010, 01:20 PM
if Stakhovsky is in good shape, it will be very hard to beat him for anybody in this draw
he shouldn't lose to anybody else in that section though, Dolgopolov is really overrated, even if he beat Marco last time

10-20-2010, 03:04 PM
Baggy leads Poto 6-4

10-20-2010, 03:38 PM
4 and 3:dance:
QF will be a bigger challenge for sure

10-20-2010, 09:56 PM
Marcos :yeah:

10-22-2010, 06:07 PM
6-2 7-6 over Dolgopolov:dance:

10-22-2010, 08:24 PM
Marcos :banana:
He saved 3 SP's in the tiebreak :yeah:
He is playing pretty well now :)

SF vs. Istomin (UZB) :bounce:

10-23-2010, 04:27 PM
6-4 6-7:scared:

10-23-2010, 09:01 PM
6-4 6-7 7-6! :bowdown:
16 aces :inlove:

Now in the final vs. Troicki :bounce:
I just hope he isn't too tired :unsure:

10-23-2010, 09:59 PM
fuck yeah, hope he can win the title
couldn't see the last set, but what a comeback from what I've read, must have shown some true grit:yeah:

10-24-2010, 03:57 PM
too bad, maybe he wasnt fresh enough in the end after his long match yesterday, still a nice achievement and he could defend almost all his points from Stockholm last year:)

now good luck for Vienna:rocker2:

10-24-2010, 09:21 PM
The umpires were horrid today :o
I didn't see it, but Marcos got robbed, just in Toronto vs. Chardy where Marcos had an easy draw and got robbed and then just gave up in the end :rolleyes:
He needs to learn to get over it and move on, otherwise he will never be in the top 10 again :mad:
This would've put him at #16, but instead he will be #19 tomorrow :rolleyes:

Anyways, GL in Vienna! :bounce:
He is the #4 seed and got a R1 bye and will play against F.Mayer or Phau in R2, hopefully Phau as Mayer is in great form :p
And he won't play until Wednesday or Thursday, so he will have some time to rest and re-group :)

10-24-2010, 09:22 PM

10-25-2010, 04:14 AM
:speakles:always so much drama in Marcos' matches

10-28-2010, 03:18 PM
he'll play Phau indeed, later today
reach the QFs by beating a player ranked around 90, won't get much easier than that, Baggy'd better take this chance:armed:

10-28-2010, 08:47 PM
7-5 6-2:dance: next up Berrer

10-29-2010, 06:31 PM

such a great chance with Haider-Maurer in the semis

10-29-2010, 08:39 PM

10-30-2010, 05:15 AM
Baggy :sad:

11-01-2010, 02:37 PM
And Baggy withdrew from the Swiss Tournament. Is he sick/hurt or just tired?

11-01-2010, 05:05 PM
shoulder injury, he's out of Paris too, year's over:sad:

11-02-2010, 09:55 PM

11-06-2010, 06:37 AM
Baggy :sad: It seems he does have so much trouble with injuries. Maybe he is playing too much?

11-11-2010, 03:22 PM
^Yes! He played 28 tournaments this year I think :o
