DAVIS CUP: Egypt tied at 1-1 against Baghdatis' Cyprus

Davis Cup matches are taking place this weekend and while all eyes are on the World Group first round ties of course, I wanted to check on the Group II Europe/Africa tie taking place in Limassol, Cyprus between Egypt and a Marcos Baghdatis-led Cypriot squad.

Two singles rubbers took place yesterday where Egyptian number 1, Karim Maamoun took out Rares Cuzdriorean in straights, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 before former Australian Open finalist, Baghdatis leveled the tie for Cyprus by easing past Sherif Sabry 6-2, 6-1, 6-1.

Egyptian duo, Maamoun and Sabry will face Baghdatis and Photos Kallias in the doubles tie today to try and salvage another point for Egypt.

Sunday's matches will feature the reversed singles where Maamoun faces Baghdatis and Sabry takes on Cuzdriorean (barring any last minute changes by the team captains).

Best of luck to the Egyptian squad who have a hefty task ahead of them against a recently rejuvenated Baghdatis.
