CH Kosice QF: Hajek def. Crivoi 6-1 4-6 7-5
Jan was 6-1 4-*1 up with BPs for 5-1. At that point, Crivoi basically started hitting lines and Jan got tight as he often does. Jan fell apart, fell down 2-*0 in the third set, Crivoi had the chance for a double break at 3-0 and failed to capitalize. Crivoi got broken at *4-3 in a very long deuce game where he had several ADs, and was broken at *5-4. Jan stepped his game up defensively and started returning crisply, Crivoi started missing first serves and wasn't hitting the lines like he was for an hour.
Great escape, he's clearly tired after his tough week in Prostejov, but he came through, and this was a very important victory for him as he's almost top 100 now.
