  • Baghdatis upends Mayer, Tomic advances

    3/23/12 1:32 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Marcos Baghdatis is off to a good start in Miami. The Cypriot took on Argentina’s Leonardo Mayer in the Sony Ericsson Open first round.

    Marcos Baghdatis def. Leonardo Mayer 6-1, 6-4

    The opening set of this first round encounter was a complete rout. Baghdatis converted on both break point opportunities he earned and kept Mayer to 1 game.

    The second set was far more drama-filled. The two men traded breaks of serve to open the set, but Mayer couldn’t hang with Baghdatis. The Argentine’s serve started to fall apart. He kicked in 5 double faults in the set, and donated a pair to Baghdatis in the fifth game to give the Cypriot the match-winning break.

    Baghdatis will battle world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in a compelling second round showdown.

    Bernard Tomic def. Sergiy Stakhovsky 7-6(4), 6-3

    Aussie teenager Bernard Tomic opened his Miami Masters campaign with a straight-set victory over Sergiy Stakhovsky. The world No. 36 came into Miami off a dismal showing in Indian Wells; Tomic lost there in the first round to Gilles Muller.

    Stakhovsky was able to keep pace in the first set, only just getting edged by the Aussie in the tiebreaker. The second set seemed on track to deliver another good fight with the set staying on serve through 3-3. But Stakhovsky lost his way and was unable to win another game for the match.

    Tomic will face down David Ferrer in the second round.
