Default Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

This guy never got to 3d round at US after 7 (!) attempts. Only three victories here - 2004 (Mutis), 2006 (Waske) and this year (Bachinger).

Well, it`s not unique thing in Open era when strong guy sucks at some Slam (I guess a plenty of fans know about Muster`s record at Wimbledon), but unusual thing nowadays. Even more, if it were RG - well, ok. But hard is Baggy`s favourite surface, he got to final at Slam on it, played in Cincy semi few years ago, etc. And never couldn`t win two matches in a row at US Open? Can`t believe, something is wrong here.

The only thing that can explain this is if in 2006, Simon Reed said that Baghdatis will win the USO

It is weird. JCF has been hopeless at RG since he won it and F.Lopez's record at RG has been 1-8 since 2004.

The early Christians cursed all male Cypriots, that's who.

Talented player but his physical condition to hang in grand slams is crap. So it's really no surprise.

No one cursed him he is just a really talented man who has been winging it for years but whenever he faces anyone professional with a plan a and plan b he goes down.

Total BS. Then why does he have 44-23 W-L in remaining slams and 3-7 at the USO? + F, 2 times R16 AO; SF, QF, R16 W; R16 RG. He has never been even remotely close to R16 at the USO.

I love Marcos. Great player, great personality. love to see him smiling, wining or losing. not sure about this 'curse thing' but I simply believe that he hasn't been fit enough to compete at the highest level. I expected great things from him after he reached the final of the AO back in 2006 but it didn't work out.

Default Re: Who cursed Marcos Baghdatis?

tactically, he's not as aggressive as he used to be. Also, he can't get enough first serves in consistently to really hold comfortably against a competent opponent. He just doesn't have that fire or power like he used to and that could be the physical condition you guys were talking about.
