Re: Kitzbühel R1: Klizan def. Thiem 6-1 3-6 7-5

1st set was all about Klizan´s dominance, Thiem didn´t win a single point by Klizan´s serve and didn´t know what to do against Klizan´s forehand. 6-1 Klizan.

2nd set started with tough game by Thiem´s serve where Thiem saved some BPs and got some confidence. Different match started, Thiem got a break immediately and started to serve fantastic. He was hitting 1st serves over 210 km/h, while Klizan started to struggle and was producing a lot of UEs. Thiem deserved to win that 2nd set but Klizan helped him a lot there to come back.

3rd set was very good tennis. Klizan started it with some problems but survived that scare. Thiem was fighting greatly there. He won a fantastic rally at 5-6 (30*-30) but hurt his leg there and wasn´t able to win another point since then which resulted to 5-7.

Win is all that matters for Klizan while 18-years old Thiem showed a lot of promise, he is a fighter, has a very very dangerous serve and solid groundstrokes.
