Tomas Berdych beat Marcos Baghdatis 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 to secure a place in the semifinals of the World Tennis Championships in Abu Dhabi Thursday.
The Czech No. 6 now faces Rafael Nadal, who received a bye in the tournament.
Berdych got off to a strong start over the error-prone Baghdatis, using a steady service game and strong forehand to move out to a 3-1 lead on his way to winning the first set. Baghdatis, the Cypriot No. 20, fought back in the second set, using several well timed aces to even the match.
Berdych appeared to be coasting in the third, breaking Baghdatis in the sixth game on his way to a 5-2 lead. But Baghdatis again recovered, tying the match at 5 games a piece before Berdych took the final two games to win the match.
