2007-11-02 07:18:24

Cypriot tennis player Marcos Baghdatis, 22th in world men's tennis ranking, has knocked out title holder Nikolay Davydenko with an impressive 6-2 6-2 win to keep alive his own Masters Cup hopes.

Baghdatis gave a near faultless display to set up a quarter-final with Spain's Tommy Robredo, the eighth seed, who moved past Argentine Guillermo Canas with a 7-5 7-5 win.

Russia's Davydenko, seeded fourth, looked sluggish before bowing out with a backhand error at the end of a one-sided contest lasting just 73 minutes.
