Shanghai R1: Klizan def. Bellucci 6-3 6-4
Well, it was tougher than scoreline says.
Klizan was quickly up 5-0 in first set, but he had to save bp´s on every game on serve while he converted both BP opportunities. Had setpoint at 5-1 40*-30, but fell down to 5-3 15*-40 - then he won next four points to clinch first set 6-3.
In second set were plenty of close games, Klizan was up 3-2 w/break, then down 3-4 and serving. Holded, broke and served for the match. At 5*-4 saved BP (obviously) and won 6-3 6-4.
Break point conversion says it all - Klizan 4 from 4 while Belluci 2 from 11.
Cilic or Kubot in second round.
