Tennis fans could see an exciting match between Roger Federer and Marcos Baghdatis. If you watch this match live on TV then you should know that Marcos Baghdatis made an upset against top-seeded player Roger Federer after crashing him out of the Masters 1000 tournament at Indian Wells. After playing this match two hours and 22 minutes, he has snatched the victory in the third-round on Tuesday night. The world No. 1 player was beaten by his Cypriot opponent 5-7, 7-5, 7-6(4). The result of this match was ensured in a tie-break round. Federer took the control of the match after winning the first set. However, Baghdatis made his come back in the second set and forced Federer to fight in the third round. Luck did not favor Roger Federer so far. So, he got early elimination of this tournament.

Marcos Baghdat has made a history after beating Roger Federer in any tournament. However, he will face Spanish opponent Tommy Robredo in the fourth-round.

I am not sure about the rank of Marcos Baghdat because I have found his two different ranks in two websites. Some wrote that his rank is 27th and some said that he is 33rd ranked player. Whatever it is, it does not matter. The main thing is that fans will be watching to see how long he can move on in this tournament.
