Dolgopolov overcomes Baghdatis

Third seed Alexandr Dolgopolov came through a two-hour and 20-minute marathon against Marcos Baghdatis to book his place in the quarter-finals of the Moselle Open in Metz.

Dolgopolov ousted by Murray in four sets.

The Ukrainian battled back from a set down to triumph 6-7 (5/7) 7-5 6-3 and reach the last eight, where he will face either Xavier Malisse or Igor Kunitsyn, who won his first-round match against Frenchman Kenny De Schepper today.

Fourth seed Ivan Ljubicic also reached the last eight with a 7-5 7-5 win over French wild-card Nicolas Renavand, and eighth seed Gilles Muller joined him after a 7-6 (7/5) 6-4 success against Benoit Paire.

In remaining first-round action, veteran wild-card Arnaud Clement sprang a surprise with a 6-3 6-4 win over fifth seed Michael Llodra, and seventh seed Philipp Kohlschreiber beat Jonathan Dasnieres De Veig 6-4 7-6 (7/4).
