Nicely done Milos. :worship:
22 aces. 70/31 W/UE
Baggy: 6 aces, 58/21.

Great match. Milos was extremely calm under pressure.

Topsy-turvy. Almost lost my cool at numerous points of the match, but glad Milos got it done. He's slowly coming into form, which can only be good for the game.

Milos served 73 % first serves, Baggy 55 %. Last set 70 % vs 45 %. Made a huge difference in the end.
Really close match, though.

Poor Baggy, his career is really on a downward spiral.

Such a talented shot maker shouldn't be losing to no-footwork all-serve clowns like Raonic. Very sad news for tennis.

Raonic was leading first set TB 6-5*. Up until that point Baghdatis had won 30/35 of service points in that set. What does Marcos do? Double fault to lose the set. :o

Nice fight back to win the second set from Baghdatis, but good composure from Milos to break Baghdatis in the 3rd to take the match.

Yep you are right about that, last year when he played against Rafa i think Bangkok or Tokyo, i cant remember, but even tho those wasnt indoor like tournament but that actually look like it after seeing the whole match, he really troubled rafa so much in that match but rafa did well to get into the next round

And he played amazing in both San Jose and Memphis, two fast indoor courts

Not that surprising actually. Up til the start of the tiebreak he has won 25 of 30 on his serve, simplify that to 5 out of 6. In the TB, he won the first 5 and lost the 6th, otherwise known as 5 out of 6.

The pattern actually remained true, what changed was MR's serving.

pretty much this. Baghdatis is the much more talented player. the statistics on serve say it all; Baghdatis served poorly against one of the best servers on tour. sad that matches these days are decided purely on how many first serves someone can get in vs. actual pure talent, but that's life.

Marcos needs to get serious before time runs out, with athleticism and training / practicing the serve

Only way Baggy is going to crush anyone is by lying on top of them.
