Wild card Marcos Baghdatis pumped his fist with relief as he scores a two hour 49 minute 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(5) victory over Rendy Lu Yen-Hsun at the PROTON Malaysian Open.
Baghdatis has been struggling with confidence lately and he said the win was an important boost for him.
Earlier, Taylor Dent, also a wild card recipient, fought hard to come back in his match against Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(4).
I did not follow the earlier session but here's the complete results and OOP for Day 2.
