Ch Bratislava QF: Berankis def. Stakhovsky 6-7(6) 6-3 6-2
Big win for Rycka, who is provisionally ranked in the top 100 with this result. Stakhovsky had a *6-1 lead in the first set tiebreaker, and Berankis played great points to get to 6-6 and return second serve, but eventually lost the set on a letcord. The final two sets he was great on return and controlled baseline rallies. Stakhovsky wasn't bad, but Berankis was the clear better player. Now Berankis plays Rosol for a spot in the finals.
