Re: Sofia QF: Basilashvili def. [8] Klizan 0-6, 6-3, 6-3

After the boring match Dimitrov and Troicki put on, i stayed to see the match in hope of some good ol'ballbashing from both these guys. This wasn't a letdown.

First set small margins in every department made up for huge difference in scoreline - better strokes, better serves, better depth from Klizan.

2nd set slow start for Basa and started to bully Klizan with his BH - actually it was quite a nice thing to see from a fan's point of view. Klizan started to fade after a good first set as per usual, and Basa took control of the rallies, where as Klizan tried to force control a few times until the end of the match on some rallies and he ended up making a lot of errors. I actually went on to put a bet on Niko at the end of the 2nd set - Martin was grimmacing and Basa was actually playing very smart - picking the right times to ballbash and the right times to just put the ball back in the court. Man, can this guy crack the ball when he is on... If only he had a better serve and more consistency... He'd definitely be a top 15 player.
