From Bosnia, 19 year old Mirza Basic (rank 449)

Mirza Basic is a 19 year old prospect, just beat Grega Zemlja (ranked 137) in the 2nd of the Sarajevo Challenger, a clutch scoreline of 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-4.

Could play Dmitry Tursunov in the QF.

What's the difference between a clutch score and a non-clutch one?

A clutch score is something like the above, coming from a set down, winning the 2nd in a close tiebreak under big pressure, and winning a battle of a third set, 6-4.

A non-clutch score would be something like 6-2, 1-6, 1-6 like the scoreline of the Nadal-Moya match, 2nd round of the Miami Masters back in 06. Winning the first set easily and then losing the next two even worse is the definition of non-clutch.

it's the one where you have a bet riding on one guy who just scrapes thru and you clutch your balls and yell 'f*** that was close'

Losing is always non-clutch.

Any winning score is clutch. That is, if you end up winning, you were "clutchier" in the important points, therefore "clutchier" overall.

Beat Tursunov 7-6(11) 7-6(1). He's a great ballstriker with a stunning BH. Been following him for a bit and this is the first time seeing him play - easily won me over as a fan.

He's been in a bit of a slump lately.
