Can you imagine that Wawrinka was Kiwi's first indoor masters main draw win since 1998? Maybe I overlooked one, but it's a weird stat. He also missed so many of them due to injury or had to play qualifying.
That can't be true, can it? Wow.
Kiwi won 6:1 6:3!
2 breaks in each set. Youzhny is clearly not in great form right now, so we could hope for a Kiefer win, but this scoreline is surprising.
Next up is Mr. Ace, Ivo "Dr. Ivo" Karlovic. We all know that one of Kiefer's strengths is usually his return. Ok, he didn't do much against, let's say, Berdych's serve in Halle (I don't remember any other match against a big server), but that was his first comeback match, so let's hope that his return skills are back 100%. He'll need them.
