British number one Andy Murray has claimed a place in the second round of the Japan Open after a tough three-set contest with Marcos Baghdatis.
The Scot, who won the Thailand Open last week, managed to come through a difficult match with a 7-6 2-6 6-4 victory.
Murray's Cypriot opponent put pressure on the world number four in the opening set by forcing the final match to a tie break.
The 24-year-old stumbled at the beginning of the second set after dropping two service games and was forced into a third set.
Despite Baghdatis's form, Murray was able to secure the winner and cement himself into the next round in Tokyo.
