    2-1 on serve. Keys to match for Baghdatis is gunna be getting those first serves in and staying on or inside the baseline. Roger's forehand looks great tonight.

    Baghdatis breaks! He is doing a good job of just getting the ball back into play and not going for too much. Showing some good patience, lets hope he can continue to serve well. Only 2 errors!

    Federer leads 5-4 still on serve. BaghDaddy looked good on that point at 30-15 on Federer's serve, staying on that baseline. Lets get a quick hold here Marcos!

    Marcos breaks at 5-5!! Notice how far in the court he is on the Federer second serve, thats why he is returning the ball so well - he is taking it early before it can get up on his shoulder.

    Lets go Marcos! Can't afford another hiccup here.

    Is something wrong with Fed, his first serve percentage is terrible. Seem like Bagh can hold his serve better.

    BAGHDATIS TAKES THE FIRST SET!! Amazing stuff from Baghdatis. He is doing exactly what he needs to do, serve well and stay inside the court.

    Federer isn't attacking the Baghdatis second serve enough. He needs to start playing more agressive. He is mixing it up well.

    Oh ****, did you see that opening point of the 2nd set? Federer ripped that forehand, just how he started the first set.

    Baghdatis breaks and wins the first game!

    He looks angry with some of his returns though in the second game. He's usually more cheerful, but he understands what's at stake here.

    But he gets the second one too.

    Why the hell is RF so tentative? Poor 1st serve percentages, too many short balls, missed passes.. Does he have a stomach problem or injury :rolleyes:?

    Should Federer stand a little bit back on the first serve of Baghdatis and move in on the second?

    I am worried about Roger! Too lackadaisacal so far, if he doesn't start attacking the Baghdatis serve, he is going to be in for a rough night.
