Koubek upsets Baghdatis
VIENNA, Austria (AP) - Cyprus' Marcos Baghdatis was upset by Stefan Koubek of Austria, 1-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2 in the second round of the BA-CA Tennis Trophy on Thursday.
Baghdatis outplayed wild card Koubek in the first set, but found himself soon at 1-4 down in the second. The Australian Open finalist, coming back after missing two weeks due to a shoulder injury, got the re-break but lost in the tiebreaker. From 2-2 in the third set, Baghdatis lost four games in row.
"I was just too nervous at the beginning and needed a set to settle down. I was surprised myself that I could turn the match around," Koubek said.
The Austrian will play Dominik Hrbaty of Slovakia in the quarter-finals.
