Baghdatis beat Nishikori in Malaysian Open 2010

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP)—Marcos Baghdatis routed Kei Nishikori 6-1, 6-1 Tuesday in his first match after a month’s layoff to reach the second round of the Malaysian Open. Baghdatis, who was upset in the first round of the U.S. Open, will meet Santiago Giraldo.

“I had to stay focused and concentrate on the game as I have not played for four weeks,” he said. “I’m happy with the way I responded to Kei’s challenge and even happier that I didn’t give him a chance to find a way into the match. I’m still finding my feet out there.”

Two qualifiers—Russia’s Igor Andreev and Canada’s Milos Raonic—also advanced. Andreev beat Go Soeda 6-1, 6-4, while Raonic defeated Igor Kunitsyn 7-6 (8-6), 6-3. Defending champion Nikolay Davydenko will face Andreev on Wednesday.
