first_imgBy Nemanja BjedovMarcos Baghdatis, currently ranked 50th in the Emirates ATP Rankings, withdrew from the Winston-Salem Open citing personal reasons, but he is still on track to participate in the final grand slam of the season, the US Open, next week.The 28-year-old Cypriot was forced to withdraw in the first round at Winston-Salem in 2012 due to back problems, so he will not be losing any points for skipping the event this year, but he might be out of the Top 50 should Spaniard Pablo Andujar reach the third round.Andujar, who was eliminated in the second round last season, received a bye into the second round where he will take on Taiwanese Yen-Hsun Lu.last_img
