This match will start shortly.
2-1 Bags, he got an early break.
****, no-one's showing it here in Cyprus.
I'm watching it here in the tennis center. Berdych has a third breakpoint. Bags saved two already. Winner forehand. Saved third BP. Ace. Ad MB. Another ace. Game MB. 4-2.
Baggy up 4-2
Hey VamosRafa, how is Bags serving?
So far so good, as he's up a break. But he did have to save three BP's in the last game. He's at 30-15 now on his serve.
Just hit a DF, though. 30-30. Hit long. TB has breakpoint, 30-40.
Fault. Berdych overhits forehand. Deuce.
Fault. Ditto. Ad MB. Great serve. Game MB.
I'm probably going to mosey outy to Stadium 2 to watch this. No internet out there. But I can give you some impressions later, if you'd like.
Thanxs alot! 5-3 Bags now.
Cool, sounds good.
5-4, Bags, now serving for the first set.
Bags wins the first set, 6-4
You should watch the Hingis match. It is of higher quality and much more exciting.
Bags breaks Birdman, up 1-0 in the second set.
Bags up, 2-0 now.
Bags up 3-1 in the 2nd. I am surprised he is handling Berdych better than he did Gaudio. Why is that? Anyone watching it live?
He is up, 2 breaks now, its 4-1 Bags
Bags is serving alot better in this second set now.
Bags up 4-1 in the 2nd. Two breaks. Is he playing better than he did against Gaudio or is Berdych playing worse?
47 percent on first serves for Berdych, its a combination of both, Bags is playing good tennis.
Berdych has 6 doubles already and just 2 aces so I am guessing not playing too well.
Hey 8, Bags is serving better this set, he hasnt played all that well, but he is just more talented then Berdych in my mind.
C'mon Bags! Finish this quick! You need to be fresh for Nadal. After all you need to prove "greekness" correct and straight set Nadal.
Bags needs some improvements but the talent is there.
Ok cool thx. I wish I could see it live.
I wander if Bags will give Berdych some Greek salad with that bread stick he is baking for him...
Very impressive win for Marcos considering how well Tomas was playing coming into this match.
3 match points saved by Bird Man
4th match point!
Baggy defeats Birdman, 6-4, 6-1, now hopefully we get Nadal on the other side.
Done and done. Freshly baked bread stick right out of the oven!
Of course he will. I doubt Nadal will lose more than 8 games against Gros.
I have Baggy defeating Nadal.
I also think the spaniard will dispatch Sebastien with no trouble.
Bagh vs. Rafa is a match I'm waiting to watch since the chipriot reached the finals in Melbourne!
I wish i was as optimistic as you Ace Of Hearts but Nadal will be a tough test for Baghdatis. He has a real knack of disposing of top 10 players (Federer is the obvious exception) but this time i'm not certain he can do it. We'll see...
You should place a bet, Bags will be a huge underdog. Prob +300.
Berdych was playing like crap. The most exciting thing about the second set was when Marcos had a problem with his contact lens and had to get it fixed.
Marcos was playing well, but Berdych was serving horribly, and then he seemed to lose focus as nothing was working for him. I left after he got down two breaks. I got to the cafeteria, and I saw them both go by in the golf cart a few minutes later. Very disappointing match.
Roddick and Andreev is looking more promising, though.;
I don't think it was his contact lens. The commentator said he got stung by a bee or some flying insect got in on the side of his left eye. They showed his face and it was quite red around the eye area.
It was quite funny when the doctor/trainer tried to take it out. Baggy was oooing loud and the trainer and him were laughing together.
Didn't see the game but i don't think Baghdatis wears contacts anyway. Could be wrong though...
yeah I don't think he wears contacts either, at least I never heard that he has poor eyesight
I predict bags will beat Nadal too.
Bags-Nadal is really a match to savour. But on this occasion (and as much as I like Bags), I chose to watch Hingis beat Safina. Much more interesting, plus I like Hingis. Call me weird but I think her style and grace make her look sexy.
