I have the strong feeling he can't repeat last year's performance and will lose early at the Australian Open. He will go down the rankings big time... I can't say I would be disappointed, on the contrary! :)

What do you think? :confused:

of course he can;t repeat last years performance. everyone is expecting him to do well and he cant cope with the expectation. he is solid rather than spectacular, he needs more weapons if he is going to rediscover his form from last year. he beat almost anyone, but lose to anyone in the next match.

Baggy will atleast reach the qf in the aussie open

He loves it here, his fave tournament ..has the greek support and always brings his best to the table at slams.

UNLUCKY AGAINST agassi, only losing to benny the clown at the french was the suprise, but he hates clay, great wimbledon.

He is star.

I see a fourth round for him.

It all depends on his draw, really - if he hits federer's quarter, he's in trouble.

Byrd
01-11-2007, 03:59 PM
He'll make 4th round or qf depending on his draw, so he'll drop down into the latter end of the top 20. He really needs to do good in the clay season as well because he'll have the same pressure at wimbledon where he doesn't get the same support in AUS which gets him through some matches that he shouldn't.

Same here, basically.

He'll also be in trouble if he hits Nadal's quarter, IMO. Other potentially difficult encounters would be Berdych, Roddick, Ljubicic and, yes, Murray.

No doubt about it.

Hewitt was inform in the run up to wimbledon 06.. i dont care what you say. Winning the stella proved this.

You cant win.

Just back off and do some praying for Max..

I agree that Baghdatis is better than Mirnyi (in singles anyway). But putting him on a level with Karlovic is absurd. Mirnyi has a much more complete game and it shows in his results (Karlovic's best GS result is 4th Rd, once, while Mirnyi has made it that far multiple times). Also, what has Ivo achieved in doubles?

I mean, no offense to Mirnyi, who is a legendary doubles player, but Tim, even if he has lost a step or two and a few kilometres off his serve, still has excellent technique on his volleys.

True, but Tim is a competent, albeit unimpressive, backcourt player because he can't afford to come to net as much as he used to - there are so many clean-hitting aggressive baseliners out there that can pass you at will that you have to pick and choose when you are going to volley.


Mirnyi is good - but, when you're playing doubles, you have to be. The court is too wide for anyone to stay back.

I like Baghdatis. He is a very good player and brings alot of energy and personality to the sport. I think that he needs to work more on conditioning than anything else. His loss to Fed last year and Agassi at the US Open had more to due with conditioning than his game. He played an incredible first set at the AO Final last year and has the game to be a solid top ten player. Give the guy a break and some respect.

Henman got a better time to play, before the slowing of courts.
Henman was never consistent going to the net after his second serve, maybe only in faster surfaces. Many times he did stay back, and that's enough for him not to be a full S&V.

So maybe Younes who depends more on forehand has better forehand than Federer who is not so dependent on forehand

ok I got your point about Mirnyi but still playing more S&V doesn't make you your volley better, and volley of Tim Henman are superior to any other volleys.

I'm saying that Mirnyi has good results only S&V. Henman has good baseline play. That makes Max's game dependent exclusively in two strokes, and if he can be a regular top 50 with that, it's a subjective way to show he's a better volley.
Anyway, anyone that has already seen him play can realise that, you must be blind.

They are a better team, but he's a better doubles player than both.

Well, actually, Federer has recently openly admitted to envying Henman's volleying skills.


I don't think Mirnyi is bad at all, don't get me wrong, he's definitely up there, but I do think you truly underestimate Henman's volleying skills. They kept him in the top 10 for several years and he regularly made the semifinals of Wimbledon with them, all the more impressive considering his extremely slight built and the fact that his serve has moderate zip on it. He's not a doubles specialist, but as far as singles though, a lot of players would kill to have the racquet control that he does at the net.

I agree. Henman's abilities are classic. You could say his serve&volleying has more in common with McEnroe than with Sampras, who was power s&v-er. Max, OTOH, has taken a more Samprasian approach, with significantly less touch. He is, of course, very, very good.

Not really. The reason why Tim was more successful than Max in singles is because he's a better move. Once they're there, Max's volleys are deadlier. He can accomplish things with just one volley that Tim usually needs two volleys for. These two are without a doubt the two best volleyers, though.

Yes the guy reached a grandslam final and a semifinal last season and he is still considered a fluke.His conditioning is the main problem he has to address.I think the main problem for Baghdatis is that he doesnt come from a country with great tennis tradition and noone takes him seriously although he has done more last year than all those murrays Djockovics and the likes.That Mirnyi comparison was probably the stupidest i have ever heard.He doesnt come even close to what Baghdatis has achived even in that age.And dont talk about doubles(who cares about them anyway).If Baggy was an american or british or blah blah blah he would have been respected more.But let me tell you this:i bet he ll win his first slam before murrays djokovics delportos and the likes:cool: .

I'm far away from being a Mirnyi fan, but his volleys are the best in the world. Henman can miss easy volleys. Especially when he starts choking.

About Baghdatis, the annoying crowd does half of the job for him. He's good but not that good.

Henman's volleying is unrivaled. It just because Henman doesn't completely rely on them like Mirnyi. If Mirnyi was at any stage as good his SINGLES ranking would have been better. I don't think he's ever broke the top 15 while Henman has spent a lot of his career inside it.

I do like Mirnyi by the way :lol: I just found insulting that you said Mirnyi's volleys are better than Henman's because it's just not true :)

:haha: About Baghdatis, I think he can wave goodbye to the majority of points he earnt here last year.

You're joking. Henman nets easy volleys everytime he's under pressure.

Mirnyi got to #18.

I saw Mirnyi net a few against Murray last week. What gives? :shrug:

Henman usually (or use to :p) got the result at the end of the match which is why he's been ranked so high for years. Mirnyi's gets stuck in a rut, especially if he has to cover all of the net. Henman has the better touch around the net some of the delicate volleys Henman can play Mirnyi wishes he could :p

I do like Mirnyi there aren't enough net players around but to suggest he is better at Henman at volleys is mad. Mirnyi at times is very inconsitent at the net. As this is what he relys on this probably explains his singles record, where success is limited.

Start new f....ing thread about Myrni and Henman. (Both who I like by the way). It's boring and not relevent to the original post. Baghdatis is better than Muarry, Djokovic, Berdych and Gasquet. The best way, I feel to measure a player is, how do they perform in a slam. After Fed and Nadal Baghdatis was arguebly one of the best players in slams last year. If not injured had a shot at the Masters as well.

Nobody is talking about the M-Block. How can you not. The M-block played a large part in the Baggy run into the finals last year and they will be out in full force this year as well. In fact, they will be better prepared.

You mean they're going to act more twattish than they did last year?

Yes. :p

Also, apparently, Marcos's run last year created so many non-cypriot/non-greek fans that they formed a group and are going to support him this year at the AO. So double trouble for his opponents.

Yeah, he's so good. 2nd round embarassing defeat against Monfils says it all.

As predicted earlier by me Baghdatis lost...

Could say "Told you so" but that is a song and you can't hear it. BTW, this song comes with a dance which you can't see, thus you have to miss out on that one as well... Unfortunately... :devil:
