Hmm, Nole not looking nearly so sharp today and Marcos is looking very sharp and is serving beautifully. Miles MacLachlan now coaching Marcos! Hello?
Expect Nole will wake up now in second set.

Haha! Nole getting royally hammered in that first set. Miles is a good coach, so maybe he might do some good for Baghdatis.

Nole bites back :)

Yup looking more solid and composed, although this really isn't Nole at his best. You can tell by how hard he is hitting the forehand crosscourt.

He must be the bookies' favourite, for stunts like this.

99.9999% of people were placing odds against him during this year. Favorite bets were on "when it will end?".... Only one guy almost managed to keep betting on Novak to win till RG, and then failed...

This looks again like regular Novak, never knows what he brings on court :)
