Tipsarevic beats Baghdatis to win Malaysian Open
Kuala Lumpur: Serbia`s Janko Tipsarevic defeated Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus 6-4, 7-5 on Sunday to win the Malaysian Open and capture his first ATP World Tour title.
The 27-year-old had been the only top-20 player without an ATP title after finishing runner-up in four previous finals.
The No. 3 seed clawed his way back into the match after trailing 0-3 to Baghdatis in the first set to win in 2 hours, 6 minutes.
Tipsarevic ended a fine run by Baghdatis, a wild card entry who ousted three of the Malaysian Open`s top-six seeds. Baghdatis, a former top-10 player, had been trying to revive his flagging season after starting the year ranked No. 20 but since falling 40 spots.
