Sydney: Baghdatis, Gasquet Into Final
Posted by gauloises1 on January 15, 2010
How about that for a final to look forward to? Two of the most talented and volatile players on the tour, each pursuing their own redemption narrative. Great stuff.
Gasquet had the more straightforward victory, overcoming fellow Frenchman and giant-killer Julien Benneteau 64 75.
Manfully attempts ‘brooding intensity’.
Baggy’s progress was a bit more … topsy-turvy.
If you rotate that picture 180 degrees, it looks like he’s desperately trying to stop the ceiling from crushing him, a la one of the Indiana Jones films, you know, the one where that happens. Anyway, he vanquished the Man Who Socks Forgot, 64 67(7) 76(5).
We heart you too, Marcos.
