Roddick will meet Baghdatis in Thursday’s quarter final.

Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis will get an early indication of his form leading into the Australian Open when he meets second seed Andy Roddick in the quarter final of the Brisbane International on Thursday night. Baghdatis booked a date with Roddick after crushing Poland’s Lukasz Kubot 6-2 6-2 in just over an hour on Pat Rafter Arena on Wednesday night.

The win catapults the 25-year-old into yet another quarter final and he has continued on from his solid 2010 season. He made the quarter final or better in 11 tournaments last year and was the only player to beat Raphael Nadal and Roger Federer while they were No.1 during the season.

Baghdatis said getting the opportunity to play highly ranked players in Australian Open lead-up tournaments was the perfect preparation for the year’s opening Grand Slam event. “It’s nice to play guys like Andy – top 10 players,” Baghdatis told reporters. “It’s a test match before the Australian Open and it will be a great match. “It’s nice to get out there and see my negative things, positive things all the things I need to work on. “It’s a good test tomorrow because it’s Andy Roddick and he’s going to push me to the limits.”
