almost forgot... some report from Eurosport site for the round 1 -->>

http://www.eurosport.com/tennis/atp-sydney/2007/sport_sto1048962.shtml

Marcos Baghdatis made a successful start to his preparation for the Australian Open with a straight sets 7-6 6-1 victory over Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis in Sydney.

Baghdatis burst on to the scene in the 2006 Australian Open with a dream run to the final where it took world number one Roger Federer to stop him.

The world number 11 - who has a large fanbase in Australia including a number of relatives - received a medical timeout after the first set for a sore hip but the soreness is not expected to prove a serious problem.

"After we massaged it, it was getting better," he said.

"I still have a bit of pain but by treating it, it will go away."

Baghdatis will now play Jan Hernych for a place in the quarter-finals after the Czech qualifier defeated 2006 finalist Andrea Seppi 6-4 6-2.

I hope he will be ok for the Australian open.
Bravo Marcos for winning!

That's what should be his first priority right now.Don't get himself injured or too tired just before AO even if he has to dissapoint some of his fans in Sydney.
