    Marcos Baghdatis reached round two after rallying to upend 8th seed Viktor Troicki in three sets. The Cypriot converted five of seven break points, en route to a 4-6, 7-6(8), 6-2 victory in two hours and 43 minutes. He completed the successful effort with six aces and 43 of 60 first-service points captured. Troicki ended the day with four double faults and just 39% of his first serves made.

    Baghdatis will take on either Mikhail Youzhny or qualifier Michael Lammer for a place in the quarterfinal.

    He is slated to face either 5th seed Mardy Fish or qualifier James Blake in the next round.
