Yes, Stebe got a bit lucky in the end but he played really well to get to 4-5 in the 3rd at first. That was indoor tennis as you would want it. Shame these two had to meet this early.
And if Stebe goes on to win this tournament, then he gets my full credit (actually I really like him already
), I mean to deal with Greul, Becker, Berrer, Pospisil/Bemelmans and then Phau/Meffert in an indoor tournament is really tough (where I'd rate his R2 and QF more difficult than SF and F).
Now looking forward to a great QF this evening between two of my favourite Germans in Stebe and Berrer.
