    What happened to Baghdatis? I thought his career had a lot of promise a few years ago. Injuries? Off-court stuff?

    I'm psyched to see Del Porto - Nadal on Monday. He was another guy that I thought could breakthrough the glass ceiling after winning the U.S. open.

    Baghdatis was a flash in the pan, getting to the Australian Open final in 2006 and the Wimbledon semis later that year. I don't think he's been past a fourth round in any slam since then.

    Del Potro is legit. He missed most of an entire year with a wrist injury, thus the ranking drop, and is just now rounding into form. Barring further injury, he'll be back in the top 10 by the end of the year. He blitzed Nadal in the semis at the 2009 US Open, but Nadal was hurt at the time.

    Saturday: Serena

    I miss the old days when writers had editors.

    I simply can't watch women's tennis anymore. The shrieking and screaming with every shot, even on the first point of the match -- but not during warmups -- has finally become unbearable.

    I'd love to see Federer win one more Wimbledon title, or any slam, but it's hard to see Nadal losing in the final.

    I actually like the promos the WWL has run for Wimbledon with Kings and Queens playing in the background.

    Middle Sunday to let the grass rest. Time to talk of traditions and the great second Monday.

    I'm looking forward to the Nadal-Del Potro match. I've just got a gut feeling that Del Potro's going to pull off the upset and let everyone know that he's ready to be one of the very best players in the world again. (Now watch Nadal beat him 6-2, 6-2, 6-2.)

    Well, I guess now it doesn't matter which court Serena plays on ...

    His place in tennis history is secure. If USA has a rain delay during the U.S. Open, I'm sure you'll see his second-rounder from '06, A.K.A. Agassi's Last Stand.
    Baghdatis was the 8 seed that year. You wonder how much he left on the floor of Arthur Ashe that night.

    I'm sure you'll get a break today.
