Is he pulling a Coria?

I was glad to see him yell, the crowd is absolutely pathetic.

And booing a player when he's in obvious pain - good job! :o
My thoughts exactly.

I have to say though, with these first two matches, Agassi sure knows how to be part of a great match lol.

Is he pulling a Coria?Not watching, but he cramps all the time, so I suspect not.

No way. He was hurting.

Just joking. I think it was impossible to fake his body movements. However, he does run during the points.

Say what you will about the guy. He could have started the match better, but when it looked like he was about to lose, he upped his game and never looked back. Nothing detered him. Not the cramps, not the classless New Yorkers boos. The guy has got a very big heart. Good for him!

He wasn't faking. Come on, haven't you watched him play enough? And he WAS NOT running when he was really cramping, he was going for winners off of the first strike, and if that didn't work, Agassi would hit back for either a winner or for a ball that Bag was near but awkwardly stretched for. Why would he fake?

dmit424
09-01-2006, 04:39 AM
Bag looked like he wanted to kiss Agassi on the cheek, which I understand is customary, but he restrained. Good thing, with this crowd.

F.... the NY crowd. I hope they give Marcos his dues now that Andre has won.

You've got that right. I'm SO impressed with Marcos AND Andre. I applaud both of them for their fight.

And at the end, the New Yorkers gave Marcos the recognition he so richly deserved.

The New Yorkers weren't too bad in this match compared to against Pavel. Some people in the crowd actually cheered when Baghdatis won some points.

That's because alot of people don't know who Pavel is.

Booing somebody struggling physically is just unacceptable.

No way in hell he faked those cramps. He was letting balls pass him that earlier in the match he was reaching easily. Dude was hurting, and it hurt to see.

Incredible match, just amazing.

Yea, I was a little miffed at that part because I know how annoying and painful cramps can be.

i thought the crowd was much tamer than against pavel. and i thought baghdatis showed amazing fighting spirit. he definitely earned more fans tonight.

Yup. Baghdatis showed me a lot about his determination and grit during this match. He hit winners while barely able to move. Astonishing. He deserves congratulations for fighting so hard up until the last minute. Too bad he couldn't get into the match earlier, but one cannot say he didn't give his all.

Our NY crowd was cheering when Pavel would double fault. Now that was classless. They richly gave him his due after the match though, Baghdatis really showed what type of guy he is, I've liked him since Wimbledon just because even when losing he also show's a good sense of humor and just looks like an overall great guy. I'll be pulling for him in his future matches. (just hope he can increase his consistancy)

Marcos is wonderful, and yeah, he has a lot of heart.

Did anyone see his interview with JMac (who by the way was very funny, gotta love him) after the match? The fans stood up and gave him a big cheer, and showed appreciation for the match he was part of. Yes, they were bad, but it was a nice moment. Just celebrating tennis.

Too bad that on paper, it'll say he lost in the second round. He deserves all the ranking points and prestige of losing in a semifinal clash.

Great match :worship:

Baggy :worship: :worship:

Baggy has become one of my favourite players.

However in this US Open I would cheer for Agassi even if he plays Nadal.

Rep for Baghdatis

I'm rooting for Andre but I admit that he is better that Agassi in the net during the game. too bad he just had cramps during the 5th set and the crowd sucks.

Oh thats right, when Baghtadis cramps up and plays on, he has shown great "grit and determination".

Yet when its Murray doing the same, he is an unfit, fast food eating loser. :rolleyes:

yep he truly looks like a humble down to Earth guy that always looks at things in a funny way.

Even though he lost this year at the US Open, there is always next year as this year the Open is Agassis'.

until then.....COME ON BAGHDATIS!!!

You can put me on the list of Marcos Baghdatis fans. The man became a champion last night. That was amazing.

Huge respect for Marcos for that match - he lost 7-5 in the fifth, no shame in that, he overcame his own poor start, his opponent's form, cramping, a hostile crowd to make it back to 5-5 in the fifth and just couldn't quite take it to the breaker.

Amazing match.

From Andre's interview:

Q. What do you think about this guy, Marcos Baghdatis, his charisma? Is he someone who is going to follow up for you?

ANDRE AGASSI: It's a guy like that that makes you that makes it easier to walk away from the game because you see what kind of hands it's in. He's just a true professional with a lot of style and a lot of charisma and a lot of talent.

Very well said :yeah:

Baghdatis :worship:

Simply incredible to watch him struggling to walk to the baseline to receive before clumping crosscourt backhand return winners. I think his natural talent shone through in this match although it didn't quite win him the match. Of all the young guns he's the only one who has really good all round play. Great forehand, great backhand, great serve, great return and better volleys than most modern players. I rather suspect that although it will help him gain many fans his attitude will not help him win so many majors.

Martin

Much respect for Baghdatis, although I was desperate for Andre to win, you can't help but like the guy.

He's going to be around for a long time and with people like him in the game, then tennis will be much healthier for it.
