    (4) Juan Martin Del Potro def. Marcos Baghdatis 4-6, 6-4, 7-6(4)

    World No. 7 Juan Martin Del Potro is through to the second round after rallying to oust former World No. 8 Marcos Baghdatis in three sets. The 24-year-old Argentine saved three match points before sealing the 4-6, 6-4, 7-6(4) victory in two hours and 29 minutes. Del Potro completed the winning effort with four aces and 45 of 59 first-service points captured.

    "He's a great player," said Del Potro. "He fights like me every point, and we had fantastic rallies. I'm so glad to beat him tonight in Dubai. I played fantastic forehands to keep playing this match. Then in the end, of course, you need a little bit of luck to win these kinds of matches, and I think I played solid on important points in the third."

    He is scheduled to take on India’s Somdev Devvarman in the next round.

    Michael Llodra def. (5) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6(3), 6-2

    Llodra will face wildcard Dmitry Tursunov in the second round.
