Halle R1: Troicki def. Becker 6-2 7-6(6)
Benni had 6-3 in the tiebreak and collapsed. Missed forehand, challenged on a ball he thought was out on the baseline that was in, and then Troicki came up with an awesome BH passing shot on the run, a point Becker had total control of. Viktor then hit an ace and Becker made a BH error to lose.
Overall, Viktor served very well, 21 aces, 71% first serves. Benni made too many poor mistakes, but played aggressively to get the lead in the breaker and started playing better near the end, things would have been interesting had it gone three sets, but it wasn't meant to be.
