Only footage of him so far that I see on your tube. Glimpse of his serve and forehand. Skip to 1:21
Malisse, is a good veteran player. It would be a tough match for Baker to win but if he's capable of beating Davydenko he may have a chance against Malisse.
Any chance he can make it to Tsonga in 1/4s?
I think he can get through X-man but he's got a few tough customers up ahead. Next up is either Harrison/Simon. I believe Ryan can finally win this one. It's a toss-up between Harrison and Baker if it happens. I like Cinderella Man here. If he does manage to get through, Stan Wawrinka may put the brakes on. I'd love to see him play Tsonga again.
Simon is a very tough player on clay. He's a little older today and has some injuries but he's not what any pro would consider to be an easy opponent. This is a fairly tall order for Baker to get through.
Still, it might be do-able and it sure would be interesting to see if he can make the third round at the French Open.
Can he do it over Simon? Simon hits very flat and so does Baker. Gonna be a shootout.
Would be a great show if he makes it to Tsonga... I bet ink would be flowing
Baker is one set to the good! Tough breaker in the second though.
Unfortunately too tough...
Brian Baker vs. Gilles Simon tomorrow. Who do you think will win?
I know it's a tough ask for Baker (Simon being a previous top 10ner). He's also going to have to battle the crowd. I think he can do it. Anyone with me or think otherwise?
You don't expect a crowd phenomenon where people start cheering for him from what they read on Twitter? hehe wouldn't that be something...
