Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus rallied in the second set to beat Jesse Witten of the United States 6-4, 7-6 (2) Wednesday as his rowdy, flag-waving fans shouted and stomped to the beat of throbbing music in the first round of the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship. Top-seeded Andy Roddick had little trouble in defeating Oliver Maranch of Austria 6-3, 6-4 in a second round match.
