    haha, just following the dumb trend on these boards. Since he can't beat Federer and Nadal maybe he should just pack his bags and bail on the tour along with everyone else who can't beat them. I'm pointing out the absudity of the one who makes these threads to begin with.

    Baghdatis got bagelled by Nadal and yet Baghdatis took a set off of Federer in a Grand Slam final. Agassi almost took two sets off of Federer last year and he lost to Tommy Haas who couldn't beat Blake who lost in the first round of the SAP Open earlier this year. Federer should retire.

    Federer bagelled Baghdatis as well in that final. And that was when Baggy was actually playing like a man!

    He's obviously not in the same class as Federer & Nadal but he can still earn a good living as a tennis player. I'll think he'll continue to play tennis for awhile. It was nice to see Nadal put him in his place. I hope those "Bagh"heads will keep quiet for now. I was so sick & tired of everyone praising him after Melbourne. He's a great player but not in the same class is Roger or Rafa; but then again...who is?

    Agree. Baghdatis is a welcome apparition on tour but still not a serious contendant for Federer and Nadal. Now we all have a more accurate idea of his caliber and level.

    Murray maybe? We'll see. Time will tell.

    They should all retire and play table tennis instead.

    I'd like to "point out" the "absurdity" that some cannot simply spell words correctly!

    and I'd like to "point out" the "absurdity" that some people even care about this. :confused:

    This thread was made less than 2 months after him reaching a slam final. I guess some posters have always been dumb. Marcos should retire when he wants to, he deserves it. He gives his all

    Yeah he's only in his early 30s, still has 45+ more years on this planet so why not keep playing and keep getting paid. Retirement is nicer when you have more money. Plus, what is he going to do when he quits tennis? Teach, work for the ATP? The life of a touring tennis player is much more glamorous and exciting.

    The way this humourous bump seems to be turning into a revival of Bagdo Follow thread! ;-)
