    Marcos might need to flatten out his shots more, they're bouncing right into Fed's power zone.

    He's letting this get away. Hopefully he can fight back in the 4th set.

    Roger up 2 breaks. Has he solved this kid?

    Maybe. Marcos definitely looks rattled though.

    It's a Marcos whitewash in this 3rd set ... his freight train has slowed down.

    Looks like the end of the line for the Bag. Fed is starting to really dominate him now.

    2 breaks down, quite tough to fight back at the rate MB is going.

    Whoa! Fed almost took Bag's head off that time.

    5-0 Fed.

    Gotta love this kid. Roger hits it right to his face at the net and Bags lights up and everything is cool. Nice 'tude.

    Yeah, that's why you can't help root for him. Too bad he's up against Fed and he's starting to put squeeze on him.

    6-0 it is ... really hope Marcos can recover in the 4th and regain his composure.

    Are you dense or is this the way you generally are? I'm with Roger all the way, but you got to appreciate good play and good 'tude, no?

    Yeah, he has a great attitude and brings a breath of fresh air to tennis, instead of steaming hot heads or yelling brats.

    It's great to see the great mental toughness of both players. Fed, with his composure to figure out Baggy. And I'd love to see Baggy fight through this one.

    Fed's approach shots are unplayable.

    Man, that jerk in the crowd who yelled out when Bagdad was serving down set point in the 2nd set cost Bagdad the 2nd set!! :mad: His toss was in the air on his 1st serve when some jerk in the crowd yelled out which caused Bagdad to hit his 1st serve into the net. The way he has been winning most of his points when he gets his first serve in, the overwhelming odds were that he would have won that game and gone into the tiebreak. That guy in the crowd was a total idiot!!! :mad:

    Roger up 2-0 in the 4th. Hope Bags steps up or this may be over in a 20 min. But he seems to be cramping or on the verge of it, anyway.

    That's a cramp. MArcos should have got the time-out. He'll regret that.

    Nice drop shot. Marcos needs to mess w/ Fed's timing more.

    What are you talking about?! I was never part of the Bag bandwagon but I give props to him or anyone who goes up against Fed.

    You can tell that Marcos is trying to rush many shots and needs to play a patient game.

    LOL! Now the commentators are ripping on JHH after Bag shook off an apparent leg cramp.

    Oh, boy! Nice FH shot by Fed and he's now up 3-0.

    Yeah, amazing shot! He definitely deserves his no.1 seeding. Wonder if it's going to be another retirement ....

    Whatever...

    I'm enjoying the game too much to be bothered by a n00b.
