Baghdatis upsets Mayer in Brisbane tennis
23:27 AEST Wed Jan 2 2013

The seeds continued to fall at the season-opening Brisbane International tennis event on Wednesday with German Florian Mayer toppled by former Australian Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis.

The 71-minute upset meant world No.28 Mayer was the second seed in the men's draw, on top of five in the high-quality women's field, to be bundled out of the tournament.

The sixth seed, who played a key role in Germany's Davis Cup victory over Australia in September, was far from his best as Baghdatis broke him four times on Pat Rafter Arena for a 6-4 6-2 victory.

The popular Cypriot will play third-seeded Frenchman Gilles Simon, who advanced to the quarter-finals with a tight 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-5) second-round win over Colombia's Alejandro Falla.

All the top four seeds received first-round byes. World No.3 Andy Murray meets local hope John Millman on Thursday to start his title defence.

Eighth-seeded Slovak Martin Klizak fell to Denis Istomin on Tuesday but Japanese fifth-seed Kei Nishikori moved into the quarter-finals on Wednesday with a 6-3 6-3 win over Spaniard Tommy Robredo.

Fourth seed Alexandr Dolgopolov will meet Nishikori in the quarter-finals with just 13 games under his belt after veteran Finn Jarkko Nieminen was forced to retire at 6-2 4-1 down on Wednesday night.

A distressed Nieminen received medical treatment on Pat Rafter Arena following the third game of the second set before pulling the pin two games later after leaving the court to be ill.

The world No.41, who triumphed at last year's Sydney International, had been suffering a migraine.
