Kitzbuhel R2: Klizan d. Cervenak 6-4, 6-4

Expected and good. Klizan is more important tennis player for Slovakia than Cervenak. I still don´t get why the odds before the match were clearly in favour of Cervenak everywhere. Like 1.50 on Cervenak and 2.50 on Klizan.

Whatever, Bolelli/F.Mayer next in QF. Will be a tough one, but still playable.

expected? Klizan has the Olympics to attend, wasn't a given that he would actually win this one

Tough battle for Slovakian number 1 : Klizan climbs to number 54 with this one, just one rank behind Lacko.

His carreer best.

Maybe the odds were like that because Klizan hardly defeated Thiem in previous round or because of nearly Olympics.

To be honest, Klizan himself knows that he has no real chance on Olympics. He´s not that good on grass, one win for him there would be a very pleasant surprise and he has to be very lucky to get it. I think he´s competing in full power here in Kitzbuhel, no limitations there. He just needs points badly to secure his nice actual ranking and eventually to climb into top 50.

And I am not saying that Klizan vs. Cervenak was 100% lock for Klizan, just that Klizan was a favorite there in my point of view and I was really surprised that Cervenak was considered a favorite there (probably because of his recent wins vs. Haas, Stakhovsky, Darcis etc.). But Klizan is still simply a much better player than Pavol Cervenak.

All four guys in Olympics have a lot of money against them this week.

Klizan has a lousy form and Cervenak is playing out of his mind recently. I think the odds were right. Klizan won't make much impact in the olympics, but maybe they could notch some surprising wins with Lacko in the doubles, singles is out of the question.

It really was 2.50 on Klizan ? I would bet my car if I knew it !

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Bolelli did fine some years ago when he was actually promising and many were looking forward to his results, at this point very few people expect great things for him despite still being quite young.
