Jurgen Melzer into Vienna quarters

Jurgen Melzer into Vienna quarters

Jurgen Melzer defeated Lukasz Kubot 7-6 7-6 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Bank Austria Trophy where he will face the winner of the match between Philipp Kohlschreiber and Tobias Kamke.

It looked like at first that Melzer started the match in better shape. He got a break but then he lost four games and found himself 5-3 down. Kubot served at 5-4 and had a set point and was not able to converted it. The players reached the tiebreaker which Melzer won.

In the second set, Melzer went 4-1 up but was not able to keep his momentum. They reached another tie breaker and Jurgen converted his first match point when Kubot netted a return.

“It was far from easy as he took many risks,” Melzer said. “I was more consistent and tried to stick to my own game.”

“I was very glad to take that opener,” he added. “From then on, I knew I had to rely on my own strengths.”
