Baghdatis, who was unseeded, has now lost his last seven finals. Nevertheless, the 2006 Australian Open finalist was encouraged by his showing in Dubai, beating fourth-seed Roberto Bautista Agut, fifth-seed Viktor Troicki and sixth-seed Feliciano Lopez.
- Wawrinka, who has beaten Baghdatis all six times they’ve played, broke serve on a fifth set point in the 10th game to close out the first set.
- World number 57 Baghdatis, serving at 4-5, saved four set points but his serve deserted him again as he conceded the set.
So lets do:
- Stan Wawrinka blong to which country?
- Marcos Baghdatis associated with which games?
