didnt actually see the match but he got through

was ahead 4-1 in the 4th set and gave one break back but he wasnt really threatened on either of his last 2 service games

I was quite scared when he lost the TB after being a break up in the set, and then trailed a break in the 2nd.
But he repaired it, good result. Stako is no clay guy, so to dispose quite easily of a good quali is nice.

In the first set Sergiy showed an example how you shouldn't blow leads. Serving for set - broken. Having a set point on serve in the tie-break, losing it. Otherwise nice result.

The Ukrainian played an aggressive match. Nice to see Stak play like that, wish he would do it more often. Served well throughout much of the match too but had some patchy moments. Guez played pretty well but lacks weapons. Overall, an expected result.

Guez led 7-6 3-1, right? That's all I saw then I come to see this :o
