Stockholm: Bagh-Delpo

Del Potro emerged at the Stockholm Open where he played doubles with, wait for it…..Baggy!!  To be honest, my first reaction was “Does DelPo say yes to everyone who asks him?”  Then I quickly realized it’s Baggy, how could anyone say no to his smiling face?  He quickly shot to the top of the list of JMDP’s doubles partners.

Baggy is also proficient at the net while DelPo is a work in progress.  So Baggy is jolly, good-natured, AND charitable.  Screencaps below!

I’d love to walk in the park and see these two players.

Baghdelpo had a few communication mishaps early on.
After going a set down, they won the match in the champions’ tiebreak.  That means a smile from Baggy and a fist-pump from JMDP.  Awww

Baghdatis and Del Potro defeat Lipsky and Ram, which qualifies as a bit of an upset.  At 9-3 in the champions’ tiebreak, all players forgot to change ends.  Hah, I always wanted to see that in a match.  In any case, DelPo got his much-desired practice at the net while Baggy pulled through in the tiebreak to secure the win.  Now they just need to work on coordinating their outfits!

I play favorites with Juan Martin Del Potro, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, David Ferrer, Feliciano Lopez, Gilles Simon and the long line of mercurial talent that drives me to despair in front of the screen at odd hours during the week.

    Like how the photos are a study in contrasts: both in height and demeanor. 😉

      Baghdatis is listed at 6 ft though! Hmm, I have doubts about that. It’s hilarious how different they are in their demeanor. Baghdatis looks like a young boy while DelPo looks like DelPo, hah 😉
