Baghdatis in Sydney 2012

Postby kurupetos » Thu Jan 12, 2012 3:58 pm

Marcos Baghdatis closed on a second appearance in the Apia International Sydney final on Thursday night as he ousted top seed Juan Martin del Potro 7-6(7), 6-4 in the quarter-finals. The Cypriot won his fourth ATP World Tour title in Sydney in 2010 (d. Gasquet).

"I played some great tennis today," said Baghdatis. "[I'm] happy the way I'm playing. It's a great victory for me. I know I can beat anybody. I've beaten the best before. I think if I continue working on this aggressive play and the way I played today, I'm going to win more matches and [beat] bigger opponents."

Former World No. 4 del Potro served for the first set at 5-4, and held two set points at 6-4 in the ensuing tie-break but failed to convert. After fighting back to clinch the opener, Baghdatis broke del Potro in the seventh game of the second set to claim victory in one hour and 40 minutes.

He actually beat Del Potro (no: 11) in straight sets.

Serious mate. I have seen the Hellas Ottomania Fan Club of Australia in action. They know nothing of Tennis and yet they go to the Aussie Open with their Ottoman Flags and make completed dorks of themselves.

It really is embarrassing!
