I have to say I really dig his head- and wristbands. Not too sur about the purple glitterband on his shorts though...I really hope this extra grass prep helps Nadal out Wimby-wise.
Oh cool, he put his Waldo kit back on.

After a shaky start he's not even playing that bad for a first grass match.
Whenever I see Baghdatis play, it always screams "unfullfilled potential' to me.
He really falls in the same category as Nalbandian, Monfils (or even Safin-light): players with crazy talent who could've won multiple slams had they been as dedicated/competitive as Nadal/Djokovic.
Especially with Nalbandian en Baghdatis, it always felt they were sllightly too heavy and not quite putting enough work in on the (cardio)fitness front.
After early success, Baghdatis seems content to 'just' be a good player, making very good money and living a very comfortable life, instead of busting his balls on a daily basis to be a perennial top-10 player and threat in slams.
Just my perception though, I could be way off.
if only he could finally fullfill his potential... :-|Look how long it took Wawrinka to put it all together and Baghdatis has had a fair share of injuries.
Yeah, but don't you also feel that Baggy has looked like he didn't want it quite enough at times? I'm still hoping he will give it his all the last 2 years of his career, but I just don't see it happening. Kinda like I have that same feeling about Monfils.Look how long it took Wawrinka to put it all together and Baghdatis has had a fair share of injuries.
Probably because he feels with a 2nd serve he can really atack the way he wants if he gives himself time, while with a 1st serve it's really just about getting it back, and have a better chance to win the point by redirecting and getting it back fast to the server.Nadal stands farther behind the baseline on the 2nd serve than the first...reason?
Meanwhile half the forum is wasting their lives hating on Nadal at every opportunity :lol:*Sigh* your over-the-top fanboy-is is exhausting. It's one thing to be a fan, a completely different thing losing all objectivity and almost deifying your idol.
