I was at that match. It was so boring I left at the beginning of the 3rd, even though I had some great seats right behind the baseline. Some of the crowd was in to it because they were from Cyprus.

Looking at the stats, it looks like Bags couldnt even get a first serve in!Also had his chances in the 3rd set although he served 40 percent in that 3rd set.

You were there to! Those guys from Cyprus were nuts. I found the match a lot better/intense then the Blake match. I saw so many people I know there. The one ball boy from the first set of the Blake match goes to my clinics. Did you try the serve thing? I was pretty disapointed that I only got 87 m/h, espesially when those big brutes who did horrible serves would get 95 m/h.

Funny, they took it off ESPN part way into the second set. The way MacEnroe was going on and on about Bhagdatis though you would have thought there was no reason to keep watching; wish i could have seen it.

Ah the days of being young. When you grow up and see people, it always becomes this little chit chat about things no one gives a hoot about:
"Oh what are doing these days?"
"I work in waste disposal at the nuclear arms facility"
"I didn't know Canada had a nuclear weapons program?"
"Yeah, it's not anything official. Just some dudes who work at the Pickering Nuclear plant who tie radioactive carbon rods onto arrows and shoot them into Lake Ontario. Yeah, I gotta supervise 'the fun'"

next person
"Oh what are you doing these days?"
"Fluff boy"
"what's that?"
"look it up, it's a fascinating field"

And also coming with older age is the inability to just step up to the service box and start blasting without an extensive warmup. So, no, I didn't try it.

Just goes to show, different strokes for different folks. I watched the entire thing, and I thought that Benneteu played an unbelievable match. He was hitting all kinds of winners from both sides, drop volleys, everything. I kept thinking the guy should cool off at some point but he never did, he was pummeling Bag's second serve like it was nothing, hitting winner backhands etc. Awesome match.

TSN canada actually delayed Sports Centre and showed the entire match after Blake.

Marcos had no firts serve, and wasn't his energetic self, couldn't convert BP's, he needs some coaching about coming in for the approach shots. And Benneteau played well in sets 1 & 2.

Baghdatis can hang around the Danforth (Greek area of Toronto) while he's waiting for Cincy.

I saw the 1st set. It wasn't a high quality match. I knew Benneteau had a chance but I'm still shocked by the result. Baghdatis is proving to be pretty unreliable. He seems to play better when he is the underdog as opposed to a heavy favorite.

It was fun talking to the girl from Dunlop, who is from the main office. I am not sure about what happened. But she said the prices were so low because of some problem with the distrubuters, is this true or was she bull ****ting and trying to cover up the fact that dunlop is the suxors :p

yeah hitting as hard as you can in those fast serve booths are the worst things for your body. Its just plain ******** to serve hard with no long warm up. Those should be banned as all they can do is cause injury

Woot, I got up to 97 today. The only had fxp 6 and the airflow racquet. Funny to see some guys using the airflow racquet, espesially since they served like they should being using the racquet.
