Indian Wells R1: Kohlschreiber def. Bachinger 6-4 6-2 in all German battle.
Philipp was dominant on serve throughout the first set until 4-*3, where Bachinger had a break point and second serve return at *30-40. He didn't take the game and Kohli broke immediately at 4-4 and held to win the first set, then broke to love to start the second set to take control of the match. Bachinger had two break points to get it back on serve immediately in the second and didn't take them.
Glad Kohli won in the end, got out of a potentially tricky situation and did what was required. His serve stats weren't overly great from the middle of the first set onward so he'll need to look to improve on that.
