qualifier is Grega Zemlja

great draw for Marco; I hope his health is fine; then I see no problem with making the 4th round and facing Murray

Hey fellow Baggy fans :wavey:

Very pleased with Baggy's performance last night, he always lifts when he's playing on RLA and last night was no exception. He also looks fitter than I've ever seen him and his movement has also improved. I'm really hoping he can get by Melzer and set up a 4th round clash with Murray. That has potential to be an epic under the lights...

I'll try and post in here more over the season :wavey:

Nothing better to watch in tennis for me than Marcos in primetime at the Aussie Open. Great playing. Hope he can get his serve percentage up and take it to Melzer. Marcos never likes playing lefties, but I think he will have his way with Melzer. He's fired up. Let's go

Sonja1989

He played great match against Del Potro. :bounce: I hope he will beat Melzer, but Melzer has good form. Come on Marcos!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good luck.
Anyone does know, has he problem with injury?

Good luck against Melzer, Marcos! I'm really looking forward to it. Marcos almost always gives a great match at night at the Australian Open. Hope he can keep up his good form! :bounce:

Poor Baghdatis!!! :sad:
What is his problem?
Get well soon, Marcos! :hug:

Damn, I left when he was leading 7-6 *1-0. Must have all gone downhill after that...

But it doesn't look like a serious injury.

I hope Murray don't care this tournament after his AO final. :) Marcos has chance.

6-4 6-1 for Marcos! Great result :D

Sonja1989

Feliciano Lopez will be easy after Murray. :)

02-10-2011, 01:51 AM
Great! :hatoff:

Yeah really a fantastic result. Although Murray was not in his best form, Marcos did play a great game it seems and has a good record against Andy now.

Lopez won't be an easy player to beat, he's a good ball striker and has beaten the likes of Nadal and Cilic only last year.
Cmon brother! Let's do it!

Baghdatis72
02-10-2011, 05:08 PM
He beat Feli too 7-6 6-3 :D

Next is Ljubo.

Sonja1989
02-10-2011, 05:18 PM
Ljobo won today very easy. But I guess Marcos will win. :)

stranger777
02-10-2011, 07:34 PM
Great win! Was close actually, only one break the entire match but it was enough! Good work Marcos :)

Ljubicic is in good form, and although Marcos has a good record against him, its always been close.
Also they haven't played since 2007, so will be interesting too see how that game goes.

Let's keep it up Marcos!

Jelena_78
02-11-2011, 09:25 AM
Well done so far! :worship:

When I first saw the draw, I said Murray was unlucky, not Marcos :p
And he proved me right :)

Pame Marko! :)

stranger777
02-11-2011, 12:23 PM
He's getting beaten pretty easily so far.
Lost the first set after an unconvincing finish to that set, so far hasn't won a point on Ljubicic's first serve, in fact he is lucky Ljubicic is landing less than half % of his first serves in otherwise it would be worse.

But they've both held serve on 2nd set so far 1 a piece, cmon Marcos, you need to turn things around.

stranger777
02-11-2011, 12:47 PM
still on serve, 4-4, cmon, missed a break point chance earlier but its not too late.

Jelena_78
02-11-2011, 01:10 PM

Amazing fight back, he's won the 2nd set in a tight tiebreaker...

Deciding set starting now,.

Sonja1989

Golubev is correct draw. :) Florian Mayer will be harder but I guess Marcos will play quarterfinal. :D
Good luck!!! :rocker2:

According to the french newspaper L'Equipe, he had a bad flu with high fever and a cough.

Baggy retired with a flu and fever apparently while down 0-4!!!

I hope he gets well soon and prepares for the Masters series in March.
