All expected wins IMO.
I expected Meffert to win, but I'm surprised Martin, Gojowczyk and Mertl lost. And I'm not just saying that because they were the top four seeds. Teixeira shouldn't be beating Mertl indoors. I know Knittel has nice memories from this tournament, but Gojowczyk really ought to win this kind of match at this stage of his career. Cervenak is a better player than Martin, but Martin was in great form and having watched the match, should have won.
