CH Braunschweig R2: [WC] Struff def. Souza 5-7 7-6(5) 6-0

Souza served for the match at 7-5 *5-4, and basically choked. Was a pretty low quality match, a ton of errors, neither guy moves very well, but Struff upped his game in the tiebreaker and the third set was a complete run away, breaking serve off a FH return for *1-0 and then off a BH DTL for *3-0 in set three. Souza took a tactical medical timeout after being broken a second time in the final set, but to no avail. Struff simply too good a shotmaker for the Brazilian to handle. Struff lacks consistency but can hit some awesome clean winners, and it's good he backed up his win over Berlocq yesterday, in this match.

What's a medical tiebreak?

It should read medical timeout. And now it does!

Nice to see that there is a match where not Struff is the player who chokes. I watched him play twice in Hamburg qualifying. My impression in both matches was that he is top 100 material - until he had match points. He lost both matches (to Junqueia and to Crivoi).
