Marcos Baghdatis faces on Tuesday Steve Darcis, from Belgium, in the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy. In the same tournament, Baghdatis reached the second round in 2012.
According to a press release, the Cypriot tennis player carries a 2-1 head-to-head record into his clash against Darcis. His most recent meeting with Darcis was in Eastbourne 2012, after registering wins in Wimbledon 2008 and Winston-Salem 2011.
Marcos is contesting just his second clay-court match since Roland Garros 2013 and is seeking his first match win on the surface since advancing to the second round at the tournament the year prior. He is in the same half of the draw as second seed Gael Monfils.
