If Marcos Baghdatis were a drink…

Cytuj:
World No.30, Marcos Baghdatis from Cyprus, who lost in the third round on Friday to Andy Murray, was kind enough to answer our “if you were…” questions.

If you were a country?

Cyprus. I love my country. I need to go home on a regular basis to recharge my batteries and get back in touch with my roots. I left Cyprus when I was 14 years old, which is undoubtedly why I feel so attached to it. I had a tennis court built so I can train at home and spend more time there.

If you were a city?

Sydney. I took a three-week vacation there and loved it.

If you were an appetizer?
Saganaki, a Greek cheese (resembles feta). You eat it as an appetizer and it’s fresh and delicious.

If you were a film?
Tie Break (a documentary about the Mouratoglou academy, where Marcos trained).

If you were a song?

“Genethlia,” which means birthday in Greek.

If you were a car?
An Audi R8 Spider.

If you were a drink?

(Someone suggests gin & tonic). Oh no! Water. Water is very good.

If you were a tournament?
Bâle. The people are really nice, the atmosphere is relaxed, and I feel good there.

If you had a special power?
Invincible, like Superman.

If you were a football player?
Wayne Rooney.

If you were a sport other than tennis?
Football.

If you were an airport?

Amsterdam.

If you were a time of day?
9pm.

If you were a website?
Twitter.

If you were a place in Paris?
My parents’ house, in Levallois.

If you were a romantic location?
A bateau-mouche (sightseeing boat on the Seine River).

The Last Word: ATP No. 20, Marcos Baghdatis

Obrazek
Baghdatis didn't make a deep run at a major
this season but is always capable of one.


Best of 2010
The shot-making showman excelled on the hard courts of Sydney, beating Viktor Troicki, Lleyton Hewitt, Mardy Fish and Richard Gasquet in succession to win his fourth career title. That performance was a prelude to the match he called “the best of my career”: A comeback win against Roger Federer in Indian Wells. Baghdatis battled back from a 1-4 third-set deficit and fought off three match points to win 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (5).

Worst of 2010

For all his wondrous racquet skills, the stocky Cypriot’s stamina remains suspect. Baghdatis failed to surpass the third round of any major and suffered opening-round exits to No. 75 Lukas Lacko (Wimbledon) and 32-year-old Arnaud Clement (U.S. Open). He failed to produce his best tennis in the biggest tournaments, posting a 4-4 record in Grand Slam play and going 8-8 in Masters 1000 events.

Year in Review

The 2006 Australian Open runner-up reinforced his reputation as a man who often plays his best tennis at the start of the season. Baghdatis captured Sydney, knocked off 18th-seeded David Ferrer in Melbourne and reached the semis of Dubai, where he lost to Novak Djokovic. Sporting his trademark shoulder-length hair, scraggly beard and a smile plastered across his face, Baghdatis also reached semifinals in Munich (losing to Marin Cilic) and Cincinnati (beating Tomas Berdych and Rafael Nadal before bowing to Federer) and was runner-up to David Nalbandian in Washington. But a sore shoulder prompted Baghdatis to pull the plug on his season after Moscow. Baghdatis has a tendency to try to serve bigger than his comfort zone permits—he served just 52 percent on the season—and could benefit by going for some higher-percentage strikes.

See for Yourself

The Bag Man pulls out all the shots—pounding backhands, a drop shot, lob winners, a running forehand and some huge serves—and beats Federer for the first time:



The Last Word

The flashy baseliner can be one of the most exciting players in the sport, but his questionable conditioning continues to be a road block in best-of-five-set matches. Since 2006, when he reached two Grand Slam final fours, Baghdatis has reached just one quarterfinal in 14 Grand Slam tournament appearances. The mental and physical demands required of consistent Top 10 players seems to be missing; Baghdatis was 7-19 when losing the first set this season and is just 29-85 (.254) lifetime after losing the opening set. But the former junior world No. 1 is so talented he should sustain a spot somewhere between No. 15 and No. 40, with the occasional spike in best-of-three-set events.

—Richard Pagliaro

Slimmer, Faster, Stronger Baghdatis Ready For 2011

Obrazek

Tennis fans will see a slimmer, faster and stronger Marcos Baghdatis in the first weeks of the 2011 ATP World Tour season in Brisbane and Sydney after the Cypriot’s commitment to his intensive off-season training schedule and nutrition plan has reaped plentiful rewards.

Indeed, fans will be able to see first-hand some of the hard work Baghdatis applied in a Tennis Channel feature about the Cypriot, due to air early in the New Year.

Unable to play his last two scheduled tournaments of the season in Basel and Paris due to a shoulder injury, the 25-year-old Cypriot took 10 days off before the hard work began in earnest on 14th November with his physical trainer Andreas Nicolaou, coach Guillaume Peyre, and physio Diego Martos.

After a series of fitness tests were conducted to evaluate Baghdatis’ condition, a training and nutrition programme was drawn up to target improving his aerobic capacity, speed and weight management.

With Baghdatis still recovering from his shoulder injury, the first week of the block was used for adaptation and saw the Limassol native swimming, biking, jogging, stretching, and doing exercises for injury prevention.

The following two weeks focussed on Baghdatis’ endurance training and core, involving mountain biking at high altitude in the Troodos mountains for six two-hour sessions and doing strengthening exercises for his body to be more compact and to absorb impact, thus avoiding injuries. The next two weeks then saw Baghdatis working on his power, speed, agility and footwork before gradually spending more time on the tennis court.

“Everything was different,” explained Baghdatis. “Some days we woke up very early, around 7 o’clock, took the bikes and we went up to the Troodos mountains. When we came down, we worked two hours in the gym in the afternoon doing a bit of everything – core, abdominal, muscle training and power.

“The next day we would wake up, go to the gym and work on the power, work on the treadmill a little bit, then in the afternoon we would go to play a bit of tennis, come back and go again to the gym or play soccer. It was different kinds of training so I wouldn’t get bored mentally; for me it was fun.”

BaghdatisAfter just a few weeks the results were beginning to show. “I feel stronger on the court, I feel faster and slowly, slowly I will get better and better. I think I have improved in all departments,” declared Baghdatis. Ahead of his final tests this week, Nicolaou reported that already, “He was running 10 metres in 1.7 seconds, now he can do it 1.6 seconds. So he has increased his speed. He used to struggle with 100 kg on the bench press; we can now increase it to 130 kg, which is good progress.”

Nicolaou also revealed the principle target for the off season had been to stabalise Baghdatis’ weight management through a nutritional programme that regulated the Cypriot’s portion control. “We’ve changed a lot of things in Marcos’ diet. He now eats five meals a day, but with small portions. He drank lots of water, avoided the fatty acids and foods that have a lot of fat like, lamb or veal. He doesn’t eat pizzas or burgers or fried things. Everything is steamed or grilled and the portions are the correct portions.”

Again, the results have come quickly for Baghdatis, despite Nicolaou admitting the new regime had driven his charge “crazy” at times. “He was 86 kg, 14.8 per cent body fat. Now he’s 82.3 kg and 10 per cent body fat, which is a really good number. The main thing is to be stable and stay on that number of 10 per cent body fat. The development plan is to decrease the fat and increase the muscle mass, so Marcos will be more powerful and more agile and quicker.”

A concerted effort by Mardy Fish to improve his fitness and weight management paid dividends last year, with the American enjoying a superb summer, including titles at Newport and Atlanta and reaching the finals at Cincinnati and The Queen’s Club. Baghdatis will certainly hope the same rings true for him as he bids to mount a serious charge in the testing conditions at the upcoming Australian Open, where he broke through to reach the final in 2006.

Reżim treningowy Baghdatisa

Marcos Baghdatis w pocie czoła przygotowuje się do nowego sezonu bo postawił przed sobą bardzo ambitny plan jakim jest niewątpliwie awans do czołowej dziesiątki rankingu tenisistów.W okresie przygotowawczym reprezentant Cypru postawił na przygotowanie kondycyjne i dzięki konsekwentnej pracy treningowej na siłowni stracił dziesięć kilogramów wagi.Kolarstwo górskie i odpowiednia dieta miały na to równie decydujący wpływ.

Trener Cypryjczyka Anderas Nicolau stwierdził że jego podopieczny pił dużo wody , unikał kwasów tłuszczowych i jego dieta była bogata w potrawy gotowane na parze.Po przedwczesnym zakończeniu sezonu z powodu kontuzji barku Marcos Baghdatis dwa tygodnie spędził na treningach wytrzymałościowych , a dwa następne na efektywnym cyklu treningowym realizowanym na korcie.Nicolau zauważył że jest spory postęp w formie jego zawodnika o czym mówią liczby.Powiedział że wcześniej Baghdatis biegł 10 metrów w 1,7 sekundy teraz może to zrobić w 1,6 sekundy.Kiedyś podnosił 100 kilogramów w wyciskaniu a teraz jest w stanie trenować ze sztangą na której znajduje się 130 kilogramów. Baghdatis zakończył sezon jako 20 zawodnik rankingu ATP co jest jego najlepszym wynikiem od 2006 roku kiedy sensacyjnie dotarł do wielkiego finału Australian Open.

BACK TO BASICS
DEUCE

Obrazek
At a crossroads: 25-year-old Marcos Baghdatis is dreaming of a Top 10 future again.

Former Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis, one of the game’s great ball-strikers, has rededicated himself to the sport and is dreaming big again.

Eight years ago Eurosport, the pan-European sports channel, shadowed Marcos Baghdatis during a year of transition, starting with his Australian Open junior triumph to his first tentative steps on the ATP Challenger Tour and Orange Bowl success, via Patrick Mouratoglou’s tennis academy in Paris.

Baghdatis, like the sport he loves so dearly, has naturally evolved over the years. His spirit may have taken a hit after a series of ankle, back, respiratory, rib and wrist problems following his Annus mirabilis of 2006, but it is testament to the Cypriot’s character and Mediterranean weather that his weary bones and mind are revitalised.

Cytuj:
"Winning a Grand Slam is the greatest thing, but I also want to be Top 10 again."

The agile, gifted entertainer, whose killer smile is always close to the surface, has nurtured the fire that burns so brightly in his bottomless brown eyes. As an ebullient character, who radiates immense enjoyment and draws spectators into his matches with his unstinting effort, the youthful enthusiasm of the wide-eyed junior at the dawn of his senior career remains.

“I think even after all the injuries I’ve had, I believe I love the sport even more,” reflects Baghdatis, whose life and career have been far from ordinary. “Winning a Grand Slam is the greatest thing, but I also want to be Top 10 again. That is what I am working towards.”

Baghdatis was, effectively, “born on a tennis court”. His Tripoli-born father, Christos, took to the sport in his mid-30s on the advice of his physio that tennis would not aggravate old injuries. “Marcos is right in that he was born on a tennis court. From the age of 18 months, Marcos spent hour-after-hour on-court as my elder sons, Marinos and Petros, played tournaments.”

His childhood was a “lost paradise”, spent among a close-knit working class family. He had followed in the footsteps of his brothers by playing at the Famagusta and Sporting Tennis Clubs, and taken part in beach football matches every Sunday. But that innocence ended at the age of 11 when his older brother Marinos, the top player in Cyprus, who Marcos considered a hero, suffered a serious car accident. Marinos stayed in hospital for one year.

By this stage, Christos Baghdatis had already recognised his younger son’s burgeoning talent. “His enthusiasm and will was so great, [but] Marcos did not play tennis for two years, not because of Marinos’ car accident, but because there were no suitable coaches in Cyprus to train him.”

When Baghdatis returned to the sport, he once again showcased the appetite and aptitude to become a tennis champion. Patrick Mouratoglou, a French coach, first watched the 13-and-a-half-year-old Baghdatis at “Les Petits As” in Tarbes.

Cytuj:
"The decision to send Marcos to Paris was very hard... You can imagine how hard it was."

Mouratoglou, who currently coaches Aravane Rezai and Laura Robson, remembers, “I immediately fell in love when I watched him. I saw someone different from the others. He was putting a lot of emotion on the court. I liked his game. The main thing was that I felt this young kid had a personality to go far in the men’s game.

“I met Christos during this tournament [in Tarbes] and they later came to my academy to talk about the future. Christos was very lucid and very ambitious for his son. He knew that staying in Limassol meant there was no chance of becoming a professional tennis player. He wanted Marcos to have a good chance of succeeding.”

Baghdatis visited Mouratoglou’s academy on a one-week trial in October 1999. Talks continued, but a decision needed to be made. Christos and Marcos’ mother, Andry, discussed the possibility of their youngest son moving from Paramytha to another country. “The decision to send Marcos to Paris was very hard,” explains Christos. “My wife and I spent weeks and months talking it through. You can imagine how hard it was.”

Care-free Baghdatis arrived in Paris out of condition, alone and with no knowledge of the language. “He was not an athlete at all,” recalls Mouratoglou. “I remember having him do some physical tests. Afterwards, the specialist said to me, ‘Sorry but this kid will never be a professional sportsman.’ I didn’t believe it. I thought that he would work and build his body for tennis.”

For Baghdatis, who had always been surrounded by his family, it was another life-defining moment. “When I left for Paris my family still had a big influence on me,” says Baghdatis. “It’s how my life was. I became the person I am from the way I grew up, from the things I learnt in life.” By day, he revelled in playing tennis. At night, he dreamt of life back in Cyprus.

“It’s been stated that he begged me for a return to Cyprus, but he didn’t,” says Christos Baghdatis. “I would ring him at 7 a.m. each day and he said everything was okay.”

Mouratoglou adds, “I knew that Marcos had trouble getting used to life in Paris. Seeing that he was sad, I worried and called his father. ‘Christos, your son is very sad. He is having trouble getting used to his new type of life. Maybe, this life isn’t for him.’

“’Don’t worry,’ Christos answered. ‘He’s going to get used to it,’ without any doubt in the voice. I decided to trust him and waited to see how Marcos would be a few months later. His father was right, finally he started to understand French, have friends, and get used to his new life.”

Christos and Andry Baghdatis later found out that Marcos had cried every night for the first three months of his new life. “No one in the family he stayed with had told me,” says Christos. “I have been portrayed as a hard father, but it is far from the truth. I wanted what was best for Marcos.

Cytuj:
"Over the years he had been a father-figure to his family, looking after them."

“We were taking a huge risk, sending Marcos to a new family. At times I thought it was a big mistake. Unfortunately Cyprus could not provide him with a platform to develop as an aspiring professional player. We took a big risk, but it paid off. I would not do it again.”

It would be 10 years before Baghdatis returned to Cyprus to train full-time. It was time to return to his spiritual home. "Over the years he had been a father-figure to his family, looking after them," admits his coach Guillaume Peyre. In October 2009, he arrived in Limassol for a fresh start. "Psychologically, I was a long way from home," says Baghdatis.

Last season, Baghdatis found himself at a crossroads. More than three years had passed since his fairytale run to the 2006 Australian Open final and a career-high No. 8 world ranking. His last run to a major quarter-final came in 2007 at Wimbledon. He was determined to make a positive change.

“I was not happy with my performances at Grand Slams, but if I am honest I wasn’t really preparing for Grand Slam play,” he says. “I didn’t think of preparing for the majors, for me it was about winning points, playing as many matches as I could.”

It was one of the reasons why he re-appointed his former coach Guillaume Peyre. “When I was younger we learned a lot about tennis together and even when we parted I admired him a lot as a coach. We stayed in touch and he is one of the people that has always believed in me.”

Baghdatis also signed for IMG, the global sports and media business, to build his profile and raise his profile international, and aged 25 he took the difficult decision to step down from Davis Cup duty in September. “It was definitely not an easy decision to step down from Davis Cup,” he says. “But I have to think that Cypriots and my fans will realise that winning a Grand Slam or breaking back into the Top 10 at this stage of my career is a better goal than playing in Division II.”

When his season was curtailed by a shoulder injury in late October, Baghdatis took 10 days off to recuperate. Then, from 14 November, for five straight weeks, Baghdatis gritted his teeth and subjected himself to an arduous training regimen. “There are always people who say what I am doing is not enough,” confirms Baghdatis, “yet if I focus on what I am doing then I know I will be happy.”

The goal was to step decisively in a new direction. To ensure that at the end of his career, he would not ask himself, ‘What if…?’ Living out of a suitcase, in yet another hotel room, with only his coach Peyre, physical trainer Andreas Nicolaou and physio Diego Martos for company, Baghdatis stepped into the unknown, determined to push himself harder than at any stage of his career.

Cytuj:
"I have a lot of problems with athleticism, so I have to put in the extra hours off court."

“Tennis has changed a lot since I had good results in 2005 and 2006,” explains Baghdatis. “Everyone is playing better tennis and I feel as if I am a better player myself. Each year, the sport evolves.

“I have a lot of problems with athleticism, so I have to put in the extra hours off court to ensure I am in good shape mentally and physically to compete at the highest level. Because, I know at 25, I will have some more chances at Grand Slams.”

Taking just Sundays off, Baghdatis trained for 26-30 hours per week. “Marcos may not have liked it at times, but he has always been disciplined in his training to become a better tennis player,” confesses Nicolaou. "He did the same off-season training three or four years ago, but with very different results."

At meal times, fried and fatty foods — like pizzas, burgers, lamb and veal — disappeared from the menu, replaced by five small steamed or grilled meals a day, in an effort to stabilise Baghdatis’ weight management. Turkey and cheese on whole wheat bread, sometimes with peanut butter, three white half egg-yolks, Weetabix cereal and honey became breakfast favourites as Baghdatis consumed up to 3,100 calories per day.

In an effort to stay mentally fresh, high altitude cycling on the Troodos Mountains, which helped build endurance, was interspersed with gym work that developed core strength. With the right motivation, Baghdatis began to run up to 36 kilometres per hour on the treadmill and cycled for up to two-and-a-half hours per day in power training. During the first few weeks, swimming, running and stretching also took priority over his desire to spend more time on court.

His performance was carefully monitored. The results were remarkable. “When he played football, you could see the change in his body,” says Nicolaou. “He was running 10 metres in 1.7 seconds, now he can do it 1.6 seconds. He used to struggle with 100 kilograms on the bench press. We can now increase it to 130 kilograms, which is good progress.

“He was 86 kilograms with 14.8 per cent body fat. Now he’s 82.3 kilograms and 10 per cent body fat. What has impressed me is how fast his heart recovers after extreme exercise. He can reach 180 beats per minute, yet drop down to 90 quickly. The main thing now is that we have to take care; we have to support these numbers. The development is to decrease the fat and increase the muscle mass, so Marcos will be more powerful and more agile.

"During the season we will look to maintain his fitness levels through injury prevention, core strength work and a regeneration program. A lot depends on how he does at tournaments, but that is the plan."

Cytuj:
"It was no accident he was in the Top 10, a few years ago."

Stanislas Wawrinka, who first met Baghdatis in the semi-finals of the 2001 under-16 European Championships, believes his friend is now capable of returning to the Top 10. “He’s been there before and he’s reached a final of a Grand Slam, and a semi-final,” said the Swiss. “He’s had some problems with injuries and that has set him back quite a bit. But I think if he can stay fit and play a full season then he has everything to get back up there.”

Peyre agrees. “It was no accident he was in the Top 10, a few years ago. As long as he keeps working hard, he’ll be in contention to attain his goals. For me, if he is to break back into the Top 10 he will also need to improve his first serve percentage. He’ll then be in contention to win a big tournament, which is a goal for both of us.”

In 2003, when Baghdatis turned professional and was crowned ITF Junior World Champion, he was very confident in his ability. He knew how good he was. “Every time he was playing someone that was supposed to be much better than him, he would go on court to beat him and that would pay off 90 per cent of the time,” remembers Mouratoglou. “He enjoyed moving up the rankings and was really excited with the idea of achieving big goals. This enthusiasm was very contagious.”

Mouratoglou believes with that attitude, Baghdatis can achieve anything. “When he wants to do something, he gives all his heart and dedication for it,” he says. “Then he can achieve unbelievable things. He just sometimes needs a click to decide, and then go straight in one direction.”

Last year, Baghdatis rose from No. 150 to back inside the Top 20 and after a gruelling off-season, the shaggy-haired World No. 21 has put himself back in contention again. “Marcos is a bright and determined kid,” says his proud father. “He appreciates what he’s got and is now ready to apply himself to maximise his talent.”

Where in the world is Marcos Baghdatis?

Obrazek

After Baghdatis’s first round loss to James Blake in Cincinnati last night…I began to wonder if Marcos Baghdatis will ever be able to recapture that form that saw him get to a career high ranking of 8 in the world back in 2006. Currently, he is ranked 40 in the world and his Summer hard court season has not been a good preparation for the 2011 US Open in a couple of weeks.

Since his semi-final showing at the Grass court tournament in s’Hertogenbosch there has been successive early round losses. Though he lost early at Wimbledon to Novak Djokovic it was still a hard fought battle. In his first tournament after Wimbledon, he went to Los Angeles where he was outplayed by Yen-Hsun Lu and lost easily. The next stop was in D.C. where he was pushed to three sets in the first two rounds before losing in straights to a much-improved Donald Young. And then just this last week in Montreal he lost to big serving John Isner…Baghdatis’s return game is just not where it has been or where it needs to be to beat a server like Isner. James Blake is not an ideal opponent to draw in the first round for Baghdatis who is trying to find some kind of form before the last Slam of the year.

Nobody should expect Baghdatis to be that same player that introduced himself to the world in 2005. He was a rookie to the experience and his competitors did not know his game and he was just going out there with no fear. The kid that, before he would serve each time, would have to bounce the ball between his legs. Thankfully, he still smiles quite a bit and tries to shake off bad points and bad decisions as quick as they happen.

He has suffered several injuries in his career. Particularly in 2008 when if it wasn’t his right wrist that was injured then it was back. All these injuries caused his ranking to drop down all the way to 100 and it has been a fight for him to get back to that form that took him to #8 five years ago. The top 10 is crowded these days but there is no reason that Baghdatis can’t reclaim his place again. Even in a match where he may be losing…it is still obvious that he has the fight and passion in him to play.

So what is missing? Where is Marcos Baghdatis’s winning form hiding? Maybe it ran ahead and is waiting for him on the grounds of the US Open. Maybe he’s like David Nalbandian who even when he has a bad season can find himself at a Slam and just turn it on.

With less than two weeks away…Marcos Baghdatis fans can only hope that he can have a great run at the Open and give his ranking a boost.

Baghdatis Closes On Milestone

Obrazek
Marcos Baghdatis is one victory away
from his 200th match win
.


Marcos Baghdatis inched closer to a career milestone Monday when he defeated Matthias Bachinger in the first round of the Moselle Open in Metz, France. Baghdatis dropped just four points on his first serve and saved the lone break point he faced in a 7-5. 6-2 win over the German, who was looking for his first tour-level win since Gstaad in late July.

“It was a very tight first set that could have gone both ways; not because I was playing bad but because he was playing good and serving extremely well," Baghdatis said. "I stayed positive and was able to manage the situation well today and I am very happy about that.”

Baghdatis, who improved to 21-21 on a mixed year, is now just one victory away from his 200th career win. In the next round the Cypriot faces third-seeded Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov. “My next match will be a very difficult one," the 2006 Australian Open finalist assessed. "He is a great player... we know we need to be ready to play big matches at early stages of tournaments. I will prepare this match with my coach and hopefully it will go well for me.”

Baghdatis Notches 200th Match Win

Cypriot wild card Marcos Baghdatis claimed his 200th match win Monday at the Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur 2011, by defeating sixth-seeded American Alex Bogomolov Jr. 7-6(3), 6-4 in one hour and 46 minutes.

“You don’t think about it (getting the 200th win),” admitted Baghdatis. “It is the first round so you just go in and try your best. Alex played well tonight so I had to up my game a little. It was very even, but I managed to get that little bit of an edge over him.”

Baghdatis batters Troicki, into Kuala Lumpur final

Marcos Baghdatis hammers Viktor Troicki in straight sets on Saturday in Kuala Lumpur. Baghdatis awaits either Janko Tipsarevic or Kei Nishikori in the final.

Marcos Baghdatis booked a spot in his 11th career ATP final and first of the season by crushing Viktor Troicki 6-3, 6-1 in the semis of the Malaysian Open on Saturday afternoon. Baghdatis broke serve six times and won a ridiculous 21 of 25 second-serve return points to advance in one hour and 24 minutes.

The first set saw Baghdatis join Troicki in the department of woeful serving. The 60th-ranked Cypriot donated his own serve twice mainly due to serving at 39 percent, but he seized three breaks of his own before a rare hold clinched the set at 5-3.

From there it was all over for Troicki, who slumped throughout the summer but appeared to get back on track with a pair of victories this week. Instead, the second-seeded Serb turned in another dismal performance. Troicki won a mere one of 13 second-serve points during set two and the match ended in appropriate fashion with one last Baghdatis break at 5-1.

Baghdatis, who fired three aces without double-faulting, is now 2-1 lifetime against Troicki. He is also 2-1 against Tipsarevic and 2-0 against Nishikori.

Former Champion Baghdatis To Return To Sydney

Obrazek
Marcos Baghdatis won the Sydney title in 2010.

Former champion Marcos Baghdatis and WTA stars Samantha Stosur and Li Na today all confirmed their participation in January’s Apia International Sydney.

The popular trio will join two-time Grand Slam winner and Apia International Sydney Ambassador Lleyton Hewitt at the January 8 to 14 event at Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre.

Cypriot crowd favourite Baghdatis, the 2010 men’s singles champion, said he was keen to return to Sydney in the hope of claiming his second Apia International Sydney title.

“I won the event two years ago so I am just excited to go back there and feel the heat, get in some good matches and have some fun with the crowd,” Baghdatis said.

“Sydney is definitely one of my favourite cities in the world and the fans there just love the sport and they are so relaxed and respectful. They always give me a lot of positive energy.”

Tournament Director Craig Watson said Baghdatis has been a great supporter of the Apia International Sydney over the years and remains one of the event’s most popular champions.

“I know Marcos was bitterly disappointed that he was unable to defend his title in 2011 because of injury so I expect him to be really determined when he arrives in Australia early in the New Year,” Watson explained.

“He has been in great form recently, having made the final in Kuala Lumpur, so he will certainly be a good chance to win his fifth career title in January.”

Watson also said that more star players, both male and female, will be added to the fields in the next few weeks.

“We have a number of top 20 players on our radar and we expect to be able to make some more exciting announcements very soon.”

Baghdatis Wins Opener
Vienna, Austria

Baghdatis wants to pick up pace in late season

Obrazek

Marcos Baghdatis is determined to give a major push over the closing weeks of the season with the one-time Australian Open finalist hoping to pick up his first title in almost two years.

It was back in January, 2010 that the smiling Cypriot last lifted a trophy as he won Sydney. His latest brush with glory was a losing final in Kuala Lumpur three weeks ago to Janko Tipsarevic.

But the No. 59 is now aiming to try for a rise in his fortunes as he closes out 2011, starting with this week's event in Vienna.

"The indoor season is tough, especially at the end of a year when guys are tired - I'm tired as well," admitted Baghdatis. "But that's where you have to push for two or three weeks, push until the end. Then there's a good holiday."

"I've just got to continue playing the way I am now: pushing, fighting and playing aggressive," he said.

Baghdatis broke even on 2011 as he reached the Vienna second round, lifting his season record to 26 wins and 25 losses.
