    Man, somewhere people still really really love Baghdatis and that somewhere is Melbourne Park.

    Makarova makes her 5th straight Round of 16 at AO.

    Baggy had an injury timeout for his leg/thigh bit seems ok. He played really well in that first set.

    Rather shaky at the end (like a 5.6 on the Richter scale), but Goerges got it done.

    I once heard a description of the '77 Wimbledon title match of Wade d Stove as, "Betty finally out-choked Ginny" and that's what the final 3 games felt like.

    I'm watching Dimitrov vs Baghs. It's interesting.

    There is some really good tennis. Best I've seen Baghs play in years (but still not 2006 levels), but Dimitrov is uneven.

    I thought I was done having my guts tied in knots when Roddick retired.

    I was never a fan of Marcos' vocal contingent to begin with. Now, playing my new guy, it's just really pissing me off.

    I know some are chanting for Grigor, but that's different.

    (And listening to Jeff Tarango call the match is just about enough to send me over the edge.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Marcos looks spent. (or maybe he's just saving it for the 5th)

    I'm really not enjoying Grigor putting me through the ringer. I actually don't care for him that much, but I thought he'd be a painless SP pick.

    With Goerges winning today, she has made R16 for the third time in four years.

    Re: '15 AO Day 5 OoP Discussion and Results

    First ten games of Bouchard-Garcia were pretty high quality and tight (1-all, 2-all, etc). Serve percentages were not high, so big returns on second serves led to six breaks of serve (one gave taking 14 minutes). But now Garcia has really come off the boil. She's been making a constant stream of errors and has now lost six games in a low.

    That was a really fun match. I hope Baggy takes only the positive with him. That was top 10 quality tennis.
