Baghdatis' running forehand reminds me a little of Sampras'

    Well not quite unreal as Sampras' running forehand, but he
    has that explosive movement into the incoming ball and
    can club it.

    Actually, I like Baghdatis' movement on the court.
    Kinda like smooth, natural and athletic movements of
    Sampras(and Miloslav Mecir of late 80's).

    And he hits pretty flat. In this era of viscious topspin
    modern forehand, he seems to be one of the most
    flat-hitting shot makers in a long time.

    I just saw 1st full match of his and this guy can be
    very very dangerous.

    I agree. His running crosscourt forehand is somewhat like Sampras'. For one thing, he ALWAYS hits it crosscourt at a pretty sharp angle.
