That match was alot more difficult then i thought it should be. When i saw that stepanek had pulled out i expected a fast match for philipp but bemelmans took it to him, serving 18 aces in the process.
Was really frustrating when kohli had 3 match points at 6-3 in the 2nd set tiebreak and blew them all, inclusing double faulting at 6-5.

Pfew, that was close. But at least he got some match practice on grass. QF should be possible and then exit against Roger.

I hope to see more Bemelmans in the future, he has nice service motions and reminds me of young Escude (silhouette). Kohlschreiber wasted 5 match points in the 2nd set but the match was in his hands all the time...

That was a nice passing shot by Philipp to get the break in the 3rd to serve for it. Overall, he played decently and should have won the match in straights but he was always in control. Bemelmans served well but struggled returning.

He has a very good serve
