   INDIANAPOLIS – Paradorn Srichaphan, or Thai Fighter as he’s affectionately called, didn’t exactly breeze past competitor Paul Goldstein on Thursday. During the match he had to fight back, saving three match points in a 5-7, 6-3, 7-6 (7/3) victory.

   Back in 2003, Paradorn was the runner up to American Andy Roddick. This time the Thai Fighter righted the ship at the last minute for a hard fought victory, saving three match points in a momentum changing final set, in which he trailed 4-2.

   “I thought the match was lost,” said Paradorn, who is traveling on his own for much of the North American trip. “He seemed to tighten up as he served for 5-2. We both played well on returns. I’m glad to be in the quarter-finals again.”

   Paradorn will line up Friday against current defending champion Robby Ginepri, who found his way back against Russian Igor Kunitsyn 6-2, 6-7 (2/7), 6-1.
