  • Petzschner, Haas advance to Stockholm second round

    10/17/11 7:36 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Philipp Petzschner dismisses Lukasz Kubot in straight sets on Monday in Stockholm. Petzschner is joined in the second round by Tommy Haas, a straight-set winner over Somdev Devvarman.

    Philipp Petzschner d. Lukasz Kubot 6-2, 7-5

    Petzschner held all 10 of his service games--including the first nine with relative ease--as he advanced to the second round of the If Stockholm Open after one hour and 18 minutes of play on Monday. The German took control right from the start, breaking two straight times to open the match en route to a 4-0 lead. Two more holds wrapped up the first set in routine fashion for Petzschner.

    Kubot raised his level slightly in the second and managed to go toe-to-toe with his opponent on the way to a 5-5 deadlock. At that point, however, the 61st-ranke Pole cracked and donated his serve with a forehand in the net. Kubot suddenly saw his first three break chances of the match in the final game, but Petzschner saved all three with clutch serving. The world No. 64, who won 80 percent of his first-serve points, awaits either Milos Raonic or Marcos Baghdatis.

    (WC) Tommy Haas d. Somdev Devvarman 7-6(4), 6-4

    Playing for the first time since reaching the third round of the U.S. Open, Haas ousted Devvarman in one hour and 25 minutes during first-round action in Stockholm. The world No. 290 struggled to pull away from his opponent as a tight first set saw all six break points saved (two by Haas and four by Devvarman). Haas gave back a quick mini-break in the ensuing tiebreaker en route to 3-3, but he recovered with another mini-break for 4-3 and clinched his second set point after a grueling rally at 6-4.

    With momentum in hand, the 33-year-old German broke immediately in set two. Out of almost nowhere Haas returned the break with a poor service game at 4-3, but he got it right back with his second scalp of the Devvarman serve for 5-4. This time Haas made no mistake with the lead in hand and served out the proceedings at love to clinch victory. Next up for Haas is either Kevin Anderson or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.
