What a ride for Brian Baker
PARIS -- Nine years ago, Brian Baker finished as the world's No. 7-ranked junior, one spot behind Andy Murray and ahead of, among others, Richard Gasquet, Tomas Berdych and a spare 16-year-old Serb named Novak Djokovic, who came in at No. 118.
"Actually, he was one of the best, if not I think the best, junior in the world," Djokovic said Wednesday. "He won the Orange Bowl when I played, I remember. He's a very, very talented player. He always had a very smart game, a variety of shots."
