Elias vs Klizan suddenly ended when Gastao was broke in the 3rd for 5-4*. Really weird...
There are more streams than the official website. You just have to search. Were allways availabre.
Gastćo *was doing the match of his life
Good Klizan and disgraceful Lacko. Lukas should have beaten that Sousa guy, but he is playing beyond terrible ...
I expect doubles pair Mertinak/Polasek to win tomorrow and then on Sunday :
Klizan vs. Sousa - previous meeting in DC says nothing, Klizan didn“t give a shit about that match - it is even on youtube. But Klizan is better than Sousa even on clay - in San Marino he defeated him something like 64 62 - and this is slow hardcourt out there. Even if he somehow lost, I think Lacko SHOULD beat Elias on any day. But, I would rather give my money on Klizan these days.
You probably aren't following the improvement of Joćo Sousa this year. He's playing really well, he's better than Gil and Machado, even without injuries. QF's in Estoril, 3rd round in Barcelona, and a lot of Challengers finals.
In today's match, for me, Sousa was the favourite. Lacko is playing crap recently. On ATP Race Joćo Sousa is going to top-80. Klizan is playing REALLY well but looks really tired and acused the pression today. And, remember, Joćo Sousa and Gastćo Elias aren't so bad in hard just like was Gil and Machado. The favourite surface of Elias and Sousa is hard court, mainly because their serves. Elias fired up 17 aces today!
Elias is playing crap tennis last weeks and did this today against Klizan o did more than 45 unforced erros today, ridiculous. If Klizan plays like this against Sousa, Sousa wins, no doubts. Sousa is more agressive than Gastćo and Klizan won't have an easy job.
By the way, your doubles team is the favourite for the match. But Joćo Sousa and Gastćo Elias plays together in doubles since 12 years old. Since last year they're improving a lot and in Estoril Open lost to the 1st seeds in the match tie-break, for e.x. The portuguese pair can surprise and if that happens, the pression will be huge in Klizan. If he was already nervous today, I can't imagine if he's oblished to win on Sunday.
And Joćo Sousa never played against Klizan this year. They face just last year (when Joćo Sousa wasn't 50% of what's today)
