Got the victory, but could have been much easier. Led 4-*1 in the first set and had three set points on return at 6-*5. Only won 3/9 break points in the first set overall. In the second set he was again up a break, breaking for a *4-3 lead, but was broken immediately thereafter. He then broke Smyczek again to serve for the match, but fell behind 15-30 and 30-40 in a game with several deuces before closing it out.

Tim has been in good form so it wasn't expected to be easy for Sam. Good job winning the match but the blown leads and struggles at the end of both sets are a little troubling going forward. He plays Almagro in R2, so if he's confident, he should be able to have a shot at winning.
