    Baggy is very consistent tonight. He's gonna have to take the first set... otherwise no chance for him IMO.

    Bahgdatis has got to take advantage of those BS returns Nadal throws up.

    Baghdatis often doesn't seem to hit his backhand that hard, and then randomly just accelerates through it for a sick angle.

    Hold for 5 all.

    You can only watch it on Eurosport over here and you need to subscribe to a satellite channel to get that. It's too much money for me right now though.

    The national TV channel showed all his games from Australia and his only game at Marseilles, but i guess they didn't want to buy the rights for this tournament. Too expensive for them maybe? And some of the matches (like tonight) are at very inconvenient hours (right now it's 6:25am here) so maybe they though not many people would watch them live.

    Ah well...

    Go Marcos!

    2nd to last point in the first set, wow what a shot from Nadal.
    And yeah I agree - Baggy needs to attack more. Right now he's exclusively going for Nadal's backhand.

    Hmm not a good sign - Baggy looked clueless in that first game.

    Nadal with a break, 2-0, doesnt look good at all for Baggy.
