Now that he's had some good results and will likely have a few questionable results from here on out, he'll start to get his first few haters.

I can see the "Brian Fluker" nicknames, as we speak ...

Now come on, past form has suggested that his first game on a surface doesn't work out all that great for Baker. It's a poor loss but not much to panic over.

Baker wasn't there mentally. He was extremely impatient and kept netting the ball repeatedly. I don't know what was wrong but he didn't look like the player I've been watching since Nice. Baker started the match up a break at 3-0 and lost the first set 6-4. Baker broke to start the third set and gave the break back in the following game. I was watching the match on a poor stream and quickly lost interest.

With all the adversity Brian has already endured I am sure he will be able to bounce back from a bad match.

He'll be fine. He's pacing himself to peak at the US Open and take the title.

Sad part is, at least she was young when her fluke run happened...Baker is an old washed up dishrag as of now...He is too irrelevant and cant afford to lose to players like this if he wants to be taken seriously...
you are just wrong on so many levels. you do understand that sometimes it takes a little actions for players to adjust to surface changes? Kunitsyn is an active challenger player, of course he is pretty familiar at this moment with hard court, but Baker has played the majority of his short season on natural surfaces.

It was a bad loss but you are mistaken to call him an 'old dishrag'. washed up? you do realize he didn't play for many years because he was incapable of it? he certainly isn't an old dirty dishrag, if anything he is a relatively clean dishrag with question marks about the thread holding together / there being a hole in it.

he's not irrelevant obviously, no tennis players that wins matches on tour is. he's won enough in the past few months to be taken very seriously and it's silly to give up on a player because of one bad loss. I guess you will stop following Nadal and now consider him 'irrelevant' after his surprise Rosol loss?

dumb poster, get a reality check
