Baghdatis ousts Tomic, Muller defeats Millman

STOCKHOLM (AP) Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus upset fourth-seeded Bernard Tomic of Australia 7-6 (7), 6-3 Wednesday to advance to the Stockholm Open quarterfinals.

Baghdatis, who won the tournament in 2009, said he had used his ''brain a lot'' against Tomic.

''You need to be smart on court and not hurry too much,'' Baghdatis said. ''I think I did it very well.''

Baghdatis next plays eighth-seeded Gilles Muller of Luxembourg, who defeated John Millman of Australia 7-5, 6-3.

The 32-year-old Muller fired 14 aces in the 76-minute victory.
