Former Australian Open finalist, Marcos Baghdatis, managed to snap a 0-6 losing record to Roger Federer by upsetting the world number one in the Indian Wells third round, 5-7, 7-5, 7-6(4), on Tuesday.
"Seven is my lucky number," said Baghdatis to the crowd after beating the Swiss on their 7th encounter.
The Cypriot number 1, saved 3 match points en route to his incredible victory, and will next face Spain´s Tommy Robredo in the fourth round.
Baghdatis, whose ranking had slipped to as low as 151 mid last season and was playing challengers to improve his ranking until last October, is enjoying a decent comeback so far this season, which includes a title win in Sydney, a third round showing at the Australian Open and a semifinal appearance in Dubai (lost to Djokovic in 3).
The former world number 8, currently ranked at 33, expressed his delight following his win over Federer:
¨Don't know what to say...the biggest win in my career...I am so happy!¨ said Baghdatis on his twitter and facebook pages.
