Re: The new kid on the block : Victor Crivoi

Gstaad R1: Vic beat Kohlschreiber 6-4, 6-0.
Great win. Congrats Vic!

From ATP site:
There was a surprise exit on Monday at the Allianz Suisse Open Gstaad as World No. 81 Victor Crivoi made the best possible tournament debut by ousting second-seeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4, 6-0 to reach the second round of the ATP World Tour 250 tennis tournament.

One break in the first game of the match, obtained as Kohlschreiber double faulted, was enough to secure the first set for Crivoi and the Romanian stunned his German opponent by racing away with three breaks of serve in the second set to clinch victory after only 64 minutes.

The No. 23-ranked Kohlschreiber, a semi-finalist in Gstaad in 2006 (l. to Gasquet), suffered just his third first-round loss of the season and dropped to a 30-16 match record.

The 27-year-old Crivoi, who last week reached a career-high No. 79 in the South African Airways 2009 ATP Rankings, won his fifth tour-level match of the season (5-10 record) and will look to reach his first ATP World Tour quarter-final when he faces Russian Teimuraz Gabashvili.
Haide Vic!
