    That has to be one of the biggest comebacks last year...Nalbandian was playing Baghdatis straight in the baselines rallies in the first half. Then, Bagh. started hitting some CRAZY shots to off-throw the Argentine. I feel sorry for Nalbandian tho, I thought he had that one in the bag

    I thought it looked like Nalby ran out of gas in the end. It looked like Bags had more energy in the fifth set.

    That match was awesome. I was almost sure it would be a Federer/Nalbandian final.

    Typical 'bandy.

    His career would be dramatically different if he was a strong finisher.
    Hewitt at Wimby
    Roddick at USO
    Gaudio at RG
    Baghdatis at AO

    Somehow, he'll find a way...always does.
