Nice win. Plays Klahn next who beat Mitchell 7-6(6) 6-4.
Kyrgios lost to Klahn 6-3 6-2 in Australian Open qualifying earlier this year and now Klahn has the home country advantage. Obviously Kyrgios's results have improved out of sight since then, but Klahn has been playing great since July (3 Challenger finals including a title, plus a main draw win at the US Open).
The first time (out of two total) I bet on a sports result was Nadal versus Soderling French Open 2009 (Nadal -x.5 games).
Nick shellacked by Tim Smyczek, going down 36 16.
Nick was 1-3 down first set, got the break back to get to 34, then DF'd at 30-40 to give back the break. Then only won 1 game out of 8 games to lose the match.
