    Bookmakers pay marcos 7 to 1

    I think marcos tomorrow has a real chance of getting through obviously he is the underdog but if he plays well he can win

    This one could be interesting. If Baggy can win the first set, he's got a good chance.

    Anyway, still I think Ferrer will be too consistent. David in 4.

    Last time Marcos beat him in a slam, Daveed wasn't playing to this kind of form.

    No way Marcos takes this one. Might take a set, but Ferrer's too good in the end.

    I think he'll take a set. Ferru spoke of him with respect after his match with Smyczek (did I spell that right?).

    Is Marcos even seeded though?

    it's basically bagdhatis' call. he is a fabulous ball striker and if he has an "on day", he'll take it in 4.

    Bags is a good dude and a lot of fun to watch but I don't think Ferrer needs to have an 'on' day. His "on" is all about his consistency which he has in spades. Guy just doesn't miss..you literally have to "big shot" knock him off the court (e.g. Djoko) and I'm not sure Bags can 'bang big' consistently for 3-5 sets.

    My heart wants Baggy, but my head says Ferrer will beat him soundly. Hoping for a 4 or 5-setter.

    Baghdatis is too fat to play in this kind of heat against a beast like Ferrer. Ferrer in 4.

    Forecast to be a high in mid-70s...heat won't be the issue. DF to prevail in a tight one...hope it goes the distance!

    Baghdatis is my favourite player but I don't think he will win here. Ferrer is too consistent and although I see Marcos taking a set or possibly even two if things go really well, I still think Ferrer will come through. Hoping Marcos can play his best tennis, serve well, volley well, and be aggressive. :)

    Marcos will blow away Ferrer. Marcos strength is playing pushers. he loves and lives for that

    Don't care what anyone says. Pushers never get to #4 in the world, or even really the top 10.

    Not happening. Ferrer will win.

    Players with big groundies always have a chance to knock off Ferrer, so Baggy has a chance.

    If I lived in a country where betting was legal over the net I'd buy some of that. 7 to 1 is incredible. Baghdatis, IF he gets hot and is mentally engaged in the match, can easily push Ferrer around similar to Davydenko's win over Ferrer in Doha.

    I'll take Bags in 5. Definitely DVR'ing.

    Hehe, I would smile too if I just smacked the hell out of the Kia sign. Love watching Baggy enjoy himself on the court.

    He got loud? When? A small chuckle/smirk that is brought on by comedic moment, which he keeps to himself, is fine by me. But blatant COME ON!!! when you're up a set and then some against an eventual legend? No.

    I want Baggy to win, he's a character. Ferrer is good to watch against someone like nadal or Murray since he makes them work.

    He eggs on his fans big time. Keeps them hyped up and chanting which gets inside the opponents head. Of course he only does this when he is winning which is what several people were bad mouthing MaSha for.

    He'll win a point and then look straight up to his posse to get them chanting, waving towels, yelling, etc.

    I have nothing against it at all. In fact I love it when he gets into his matches like that. I hope he wins this one. I was just making the comment/comparison to the Sharipova/Williams match.

    Hey he just broke back, looked to his box, had a small fist pump, probably said something too, but loud enough to be picked up among the cheering crowd. Does that count?

    Do you remember the 06 AO semi-final against Nalbandian? It was different than the MaSha match because she was destroying Venus, but after Nalbandian took the first two sets, Bags was seriously getting the crowd into a frenzy when he started coming back and it got on Nalbandian's nerves so he did it even more!

    What about when he broke back, looked to his box and said something not loud enough to be picked up among the crowd, and a small fist pump? I mean, he broke back to even that set. Is that bad for the game too?
