AO Final Baghdatis v Federer **Spoiler**
 
Eight hours to wait.

I can't wait. If Federer starts shanking his shots like he has in some previous matches, it may be closer than we think. Go Baghdatis!

I really have no idea about this match! I think it could go any way...

So you should too!:D. But Jim Courier just said it would be the biggest upset in Grand Final history (Open Era). I only hope the match lives up to expectations.

For those of you who don't know, this is the Australian open, not the US open....don't think we'll be seeing a tiebreaker in the 5th.....

I think Federer will win in 5.................. 6-4 4-6 7-5 6-7 8-6

Baghdatis vs. Nalbandian - How do you get a choker to choke?
 
Don't know if anyone else has posited this, but I've been thinking Baghdatis rope-a-doped Nalbandian. Pushed the ball a lot during the first set and till 1-5 in the 2nd. Allowed Nalby to hit winners from everywhere.

Then, he started to get into a more aggressive mode and started to unsettle Nalby fighting back to 5-5 in the 2nd. Then he did a great job of mixing up his aggressive shots with his push shots, throwing Nalby off the rhythm he'd established when he was hitting all those winners.

It would have been a far different match, imo, if Baghy had come out aggressive -- because David is a such a superb counterpuncher.

"How do you get a choker to choke?" Right?

Ronaldo, :) yes, how indeed?

Isn't that a line from a song?...

GrahamIsSuper 01-28-2006 09:19 PM

Haha, Ronaldo. I imagine it will be even more ridiculous than that.

Post-Match quote from Federer:

"Well, I joost didn't feel up to snuff, you know? It vas liek I could feel dis pain in my Lymph Nodes...Which is where I generate my mojo."

Baghdatis; (6-2), (2-0)*ret

Won't be a quiet night. Lots of friends and relations arriving at the airport, including one who looked like Marcos' twin.

Yikes! I hope Roger isn't too perturbed by all the ruckus. I'm sure they feel they can make a difference. If the roof is closed, it's going to be LOUD!

Anyone who looked like Camille's twin?
