Baghdatis suffers injury scare in Sydney January 13, 2007

Marcos Baghdatis suffered an injury scare in his 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 loss to Carlos Moya at the Sydney International yesterday but said he expected to play in next week’s Australian Open.

The charismatic Cypriot collapsed in pain after twisting his ankle in the third set and immediately called for a medical timeout to have the injury treated.

A relieved Baghdatis was able to resume playing after the pain quickly subsided and he was cleared of any serious damage but lost the match in a third set tiebreaker.

“I got scared in the beginning. I thought I twisted a tendon behind the left ankle,” said Baghdatis, a finalist at last year’s Australian Open.

“But then it went up to the calf and slowly, slowly it was getting better and better. I’m disappointed because I lost, of course, but I’m pretty happy with the way I’m playing. I guess I’m ready for Melbourne and that is the most positive thing.”
