Have absolutely loved Wimbledon this year so far.

We've had some shocks, Nadal going out in the second round was pretty much the biggest slam upset ever in my opinion, we've had some great matches, some good five setters, the second longest match ever, the latest match finish ever and the best series of evening sesions we've seen in years. You had Nadal in his five setter and his loss, Federer very nearly going out in five sets and then last night with Murrays 11:02 finish. It's had it all so far, and it's just week one.

The Murray/Bagdhatis match last night was so fun to watch. Some great shot making, looked like Bagdhatis was going to take that third set too, full of drama, and the pace of the last set was unbelievable, some of Murrays shots were incredible. He needs to play better consistantly if he wants to reach the final though.

^ Agree with all of what you said. Watched just shy of 12 hours yesterday, i'm feeling those withdrawal symptoms today. Roll on tomorrow, although conditions don't sound too great this week, hoping for another enjoyable ride.

if Cilic can get his serve going he can give Murray problems, but I don't see Marin winning this unfortunately. He hasn't played well in a "big" match for a few years now.

I can see Cilic pulling through for some reason. He has to have a good game on his serve (IMO he has one of the most lethal serves in the game). Also Murray could still be carrying the injury he suffered during the Baghdatis game. Then again Cilic can be feeling the after affect from his long 5 setter in the last Round. Tough to predict, this should be an interesting contest.

About the Murray-Baghdatis game, I marked out when Marcos won the 2nd set, but like always with Marcos he chokes under pressure. He starts playing those ridiculous slices which fall awfully short. Also he keeps hitting the ball far too wide and far too long. At the end of the game I was very very disappointed and wonder now what could have happened for the rest of the tournament had Marcos won.

I still haven't given up hope on Marcos winning a grand slam, all he has to do is change his approach and mindset, because he definitely has the game to be a grand slam champion. I can see him getting close next Australian open because he always seems to thrive here in Australia.

Dream on. There's more chance of Adelaide beating Collingwood by 100 points! Baghdatis will be lucky to get to the last 8 of a slam. When was the last time he even managed that?

Can't wait for the second week. Despite the pain it's not been a bad time to be off work, getting to watch the Euros & Wimbledon, even though some of it was in hospital. Ferrer/Del Potro ought to be good but I have a bad feeling about Tsonga's match with Fish. Murray should have enough to get past Cilic, but it'll be tough after against Ferrer or Del Potro. It should be a breeze for Federer & Djokovic to get through their quarters of the draw.

Serena/Shvedova & Lisicki/Sharapova will be good too. Bring it on!

Lol you still going about that Crows-Collingwood prediction?
I was just excited after the Carlton win, that I got over over over confident.

Anways back on topic...the last time Baghdatis made it to the last 8 of a slam was Wimbledon 2007.
He was injured for most of 2008. Then injury disrupted the beginning of his 2009 season. Since then he has never fully recovered and on top of that he is mentally fragile. I still believe though that he is a top 20 sort of player and he can reach his 2006/07 form but like I said it all comes down to his mindset because he has the game and showed it against Murray until he stated to choke and that's what I am trying to explain.

Like my dad said while watching the game last night, "He makes the hard shots, but misses the easy ones".

I would love to see Baghdatis win a slam but he cant. He has no chance at all. He cant even make into the last 8 in a slam now. Last time was in 2007. What makes you think he can win a slam seeing his recent records at a slam? He cant and he will not win a slam.
