Zagreb, Croatia (Sports Network) - Former champion Marcos Baghdatis was a second-round upset victim Thursday at the Zagreb Indoors tennis event.

Slovenian Blaz Kavcic ousted the sixth-seeded Cypriot 3-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-4 at Dom Sportova. The former Australian Open runner-up Baghdatis captured this tournament back in 2007.

Another upset came when capable Dutchman Robin Haase doused fifth-seeded Slovak Martin Klizan, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.

Meanwhile, fourth-seeded Austrian left-hander Jurgen Melzer avoided the upset bug by coming from behind to best Indian Somdev Devvarman, 1-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-2.

Up next for Melzer will be big-serving Czech Lukas Rosol, who snuck past Italian Flavio Cipolla, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.

Also on Day 3, German qualifier Philipp Petzschner dismissed Croatian lucky- loser Dino Marcan 6-3, 6-4. Marcan replaced second seed Andreas Seppi of Italy in the draw.

Petzschner will meet Haase in Friday's quarterfinals.
