Marcos Baghdatis produces a big upset in Nottingham after defeating seed no.1 David Ferrer in straight sets while Simon adds some more spice to the day after beating Granollers in an epic.

Baghdatis

Marcos played a very “clean” match against Ferrer to stun the seed no.1 with a great start in the first set (4-0). After winning the opener (6-2), the Cypriot battled to win the second at the breaker. The final result was 6-2 7-6 (4). Marcos will play rising star Alexander Zverev in the 3rd round.

Simon

Gilles had a nail-beating victory against Granollers 4-6 7-6 (3) 7-6 (0). The Frenchman had to recover from a 4-6 3-5 0-40 deficit (ie. 3 consecutive match points on Granollers’ serve) to win the 2nd set at the breaker (at 3).  The Spaniard squandered another opportunity after leading 3- in the breaker. Eventually Marcel was broken again in the 8th game (4-all) to completely implode in the final breaker at 0.

Simon will play Joao Sousa in the next match. Head to head is 1-all.
