Props to Stan, he was better this time and Kiefer really had a big lack of concentration from 5-5, 5-6 on in the first set until 4-2 in the 2nd. His serves hardly hit the doubles alley then and he had poor mishits on his backhand.
Season over for Kiwi now, but he nevertheless had a good finish despite this first round loss. That was really okay :yeah:
it's a good win but Stani is really getting to the point where he needs to follow up these strong performances with more wins. Chela will be a good test. He wasted a chance at the US Open to make the quarter-finals when he lost their last encounter. this surface really should suit Wawrinka's game much more. He must win and give himself a crack at Nadal. He also has the chance to lock in a seeding at the Australian Open here.
