Mikhail Youzhny vs Marcos Baghdatis Pick and Prediction – 2015 ATP Zagreb

Updated: February 5, 2015

67th ranked Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis will face 56th ranked Russian Mikhail Youzhny in the 2015 Zagreb quarterfinals in Croatia. Baghdatis is very lucky to still be alive in the tournament after surviving Ivo Karlovic in the previous round.  Despite not being able to break the big man once in the whole game, Baghdatis was able to win both tiebreaks and escape with the win.  On the other hand, Youzhny had no problems disposing of Sergiy Stakhovsky as he cruised to a straight sets win.

Youzhny and Baghdatis know each other very well as they have played against each other six times on tour with the Russian leading the head to head series 4-2.  The Russian is much more relaxed and should be able to beat Baghdatis who may be set for a major letdown after a big win.

Prediction: 6-3 6-4 in favor of Mikhail Youzhny

Pick: Mikhail Youzhny 2-0
