2006 AUSTRALIAN OPEN

QF

      IVAN LJUBICIC  v   MARCOS BAGHDATIS

6-4, 6-2, 4-6, 3-6, 6-3

 

 

Unseeded Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis extended his extraordinary run at the Australian Open in Melbourne, upsetting seventh seed Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia to reach the semifinals. Baghdatis could have been so emotionally spent after crushing 2nd seeded Andy Roddick that he might have been wiped out by the powerful serving Ljubicic.  But the Cypress native came out on fire in the first two sets.  Ljubicic came back to tie the match at 2 sets all, but Baghdatis found his form again to finish off the match. Marcos later said,

"In the third set I started thinking a lot, I was putting some doubts in my head and he started playing well and got some confidence, the points were going too fast and I couldn't control the game.

"In the fifth set I just said 'don't miss a ball and play for every point' and that's what I did, I am very happy, I play great tennis again and I went through."
