(Note: wrong score, should be 6-3 in the second set)

Didn't see the first set, but according to the commentary the Russian stepped it up in the second. He was simply the better player from then on. Faced two breakpoints at 3-3 in the second set, but was quite clutch and immediately broke afterwards.

Interesting fact: Gabashvili had 0-40 early in the third set, but Lajovic served four consecutive aces to save them. Lost the advantage, then served another two aces. Out of nowhere, I've never seen anything like that.

Didn't help him in the hand though, got broken to love at 4-4 and Gabashvili served it out strong.
