    Baghdatis up a break. He seems really up and energetic, I think he could take this :)

    If Baghdatis wins today you can give the trophy to Federer already.

    Too soon to tell,
    Djoker can still win this in straight



    BTW, Baghy has beaten two number ones before last year...their name were Federer and Nadal.

    It's Novak. If he didn't go down an early break, he wouldn't be him.

    That defensive game by Djoker right there ...was insane, he lost the point but recovery was amazing

    4-2 Baghdatis. Novak doesn't seem to care much.

    Djokovic down 2-5 (double break). The first set is a goner.

    5-2 Baghtais. Novak looks like he did against Federer at the FO.

    Djoker sleeping or Baghy on top of his game?

    Or both? Baghy has the first set in the bag, he is not known as a chocker

    Djokovic misfiring and looking rusty, but Baghdatis deserves a lot of credit. He's playing about as well as I've seen in the past three or four years.

    But still, serving it out to love, with a second serve ace?

    On fire. Or Djokovic off fire.

    Bag has pulled some pretty passing shots. Not easy against a mover and anticipation like djoker has.

    Nice work Baghy. However, Djoker has shown he can come back from behind if he sniffs a chance early in the set, so if Baghy can get it to 3-0 second set, he may get a retirement (like Murray got in Cincy).

    I've seen too many twists to use the word "never" again.

    Actually, now since Djokovic has the break in the 2nd I think he's going to win.

    He's playing solid against rusty Nole indoors which favors him more as a better server.

    Baghdatis doesn't believe he can beat Nole.

    Djokovic isn't even playing all that great. He upped his gear from 2nd to 3rd and now has won the last 7 games.

    Nole's face is a bit redish, maybe fitness problem after long rest?

    Always smiling that's for sure. Easily for me one of the most likeable guys on tour since Safin. Kind of play a similar style too I guess. Not a huge fan, but I usually enjoy watching him play.

    Its been so obvious this year when Novak's been down and far from his best, looking to go out then just one point turns the whole match on its head, like today 2-2, 15-15 in the 2nd on Djokovic's serve Baggy has a perfect opportunity at the net to go up 15-30 and possibly have a chance to break but gives it straight back to Djokovic at the net after a long, tough rally and what do you know Baggy plays a terrible game at 3-2, loses his serve next game and loses 9 games in a row from there.
