    I wish Nalbandian had beaten Baghdatis, because that
    would be a great final Nalbandian-Federer and Nalbandian
    would have a great chance, however I think Fed will see
    off Bagdatis in 3 sets (prove me wrong Marcus!!! )

    I agree, D.Nalbandian and R.Fed would have been great. I don't thing that Bag is that good a player, he had a fluke run, not a dream run, David Nalbandian was injured from the start and Roddick has only got his serve anyway. I hate all that hype about Bag, it seems as if the Australian media just loves to fete yobbo clowns, no matter how talentless and tacky. Bag will fade back into obscurity where he belongs.

    Not true, it wasn't a fluke. Baghdatis was owning Federer for the first two sets. He ran out of legs and ran up on nerves.

    Not a fluke by any stretch of the imagination. We're going to be seeing a lot more of him...

    Baghdatis is 20 years old !

    Seriously, have you ever seen a player with such an understanding of the game at that age ? For an hour and a half Baghdatis was having his way with the best player in the world, and I don't think you realise how close Federer came to losing that match.

    Baghdatis might never actually win a slam, but we will definitely see a lot more of him in the next years. Besides, who in the ATP is really Slam material ? Hewitt and Roddick ? PLEASE ! Nalbandian, maybe. Safin, if healthy. Agassi ? Too late. I realise Federer is just too good, but seriously, is it possible that maybe the competition is very weak too ?

    Baghdatis will back up his huge final and finish the year in the top 20.

    top 10, and I think he will win a slam one day.

    I mean he's only 20.

    I'll take that one. Other than Federer ... and in no particular order...

    Baghdatis - I agree he's a contender
    Ljubicic - Late bloomer, but....
    Nadal - Duh!
    Nalbandian - Bores me, but he's SO steady
    Haas - Wow! Great comeback story
    Blake - See Haas ^^^
    Roddick - He's a fighter. He'll contend again
    Lopez - If he puts two good weeks together? Wow!

    Agassi - Don't see him past the Quarters anymore
    Hewitt - I believe he's "done with" for Slam events
    Safin - Loose screws over-ride his talent

    - KK

    Agassi not going past the quarters? I'm confident that he can beat anyone right now, although he'd have to a lot of luck to beat Federer (like holding serve at 4-2 30-love). Just imagine if he had held serve? AHHHHH. 5-2, he'd win the set definitely...and....damn.
