All seeds through, all in three sets

All seeds through, all in three sets Zagreb Indoors
It was succesfull day for seeded players at the PBZ Zagreb Indoors, as all advanced to the second round on Tuesday, but all of them neeeded three sets to prevail.
Russian Mikhail Youzhny, who won Zagreb title in 2012 in both singles and doubles, was 2:4 down in the third set against Blaz Kavcic from Slovenia, before winning four consecutive games.
"It was up and down for me, I made too many mistakes in the second set, but finally found the way. Yes, it has been long time since I won the match, bit I did not play many tournaments since then", Russian said. It was his first singles win in 2015 and the first since the tournament in Moscow in October last year.
Andreas Seppi from Italy, fresh from his round of 16 showing at the Australian Open last month, where he defeated Roger Federer from Switzerland in the third round, defeated Robin Haase from the Netherlands, improving his win-loss record against Dutchman to 4-1.
Viktor Troicki, semifinalist in Zagreb in 2009, overcame Ukrainian qualifier Illya Marchenko in the third set tie-break, after failing to serve for the match at 5:4 in the decisive set. Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, who won title in Zagreb in 2007, came back from one set deficit against Croatian wild card Toni Androic (pictured), who never played an ATP level match before. Baghdatis won 6:7, 6:2, 6:3.
"I did not play very well, I am very tired. I gave a lot mentally in Australia and I don't know if it was good decision to come here. But I will try to do my best", said Baghdatis, who lost against Grigor Dimitrov from Bulgaria in five sets in the third round of the Australian Open. In three matches in Melbourne he played 14 sets.
