Favourable draw for Baghdatis at US Open

By Nemanja Bjedov

Marcos Baghdatis has been drawn to play a qualifier in the opening round of the U.S. Open, which is scheduled to start on Monday at New York’s Flushing Meadows.

If the 28-year-old Cypriot – now ranked 53rd in the Emirates ATP Rankings after falling out of the Top 50 for the first time since November 2011 – manages to advance into the second round, he would then face the winner of the match between 17th seed South African Kevin Anderson and Daniel Brands of Germany.

In the same quarter of the draw are last year’s winner Andy Murray and fifth-seeded Czech Tomas Berdych.

Baghdatis has never reached the third round of this event in seven attempts.

He progressed to the second round on three occasions, including last season when he was eliminated by Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov in four sets, while also recording four first-round exits.
