Finally some great serving!!!!!!!!!!!! 18 aces, 62%, only 28 unforced to rafa's 41. Great watch to watch. If he keeps this up, we are looking at USO quarters at worst

Wow, Baghdatis has stunned everyone to beat the number 1 player in the world!
Nadal was in good shape, and even said himself that he feels as fit as he's ever been for this tournament. So there is no excuse on his side of the camp to say he was not at his best form!!

Simply great playing by Marcos, what a fantastic match. 18 aces, and although 62% 1st serve is nothing to be fond of, it was good because Marcos averaged below 50% for the previous few games I think and he needed to pick up his first serve abit if he was to have any chance to beat Rafa.

He has now beaten the best players in the world, Federer, Nadal, Berdych, Davydenko, Roddick, Murray... If he just kept some consistency he would also be one of the best in the world, but honestly this is a huge breakthrough!

Now he comes up against Roger Federer. Of course he is beatable but I think again Marcos will have to be at his very best. Roger is the previous champion here and there is no way that he will want to lose to Marcos twice in a row and lose the chance to play in the final.
Even if Marcos loses though, he has ALREADY done better than most expected and I would still be happy for his progress, even if he loses. He will again go into the match as underdog but with confidence, and really he has not much to lose.

Well done Marcos, this is great preperation for the US open! He should get a descent draw, hopefully, and fingers crossed that he can go far.

He was nowhere near as competative against Federer than he was against Nadal, in particular his first serve % was only 28% in the 2nd set.

If Marcos can work on this and be more consistent with his serves then he can make a huge impact at the US Open. But we will wait and see.

Of course we should all be proud, he had a very difficult draw at Cincinnati and to have made it to the Semi finals is impressive, great work Marcos!

bad luck to marcos, he didnt play too bad, it was just his 1st serve percentage that let him down.
with the draw he had, i did not expect him to make it anywhere near the semis.. well done!

good luck for the rest of the season, and hopefully we see a rank close to where he was at in 2006, in the not too distant future

didnt watch the match, but from the stat sheet it looks to me as if the main problem wasnt his 1st-serve-%, but that he made so few points when he actuylly got his 1st serve in

Well, I have mixed feelings about Marcos playing the Pilot Pen Open this coming week in New Haven. It looks like he will be playing, no?
