Wawrinka survives Klizan scare on Tour return

8 febrero 2018 22:50

Stan Wawrinka survived a scare on his first outing since the Australian Open to defeat Martin Klizan and reach the quarter-finals of the Sofia Open.

The three-time grand slam champion is still recovering from the knee injury that played a big part in his second-round exit to Tennys Sandgren in Melbourne.

It was not the best start for Wawrinka, but he soon found his groove to secure a 4-6 6-2 6-3 victory over his Slovakian opponent.

Wawrinka fired down 16 aces and dropped just eight of his first-service points as Klizan failed to maintain his first-set standard.

Next up for Wawrinka is sixth seed Viktor Troicki, who was a 7-6 (7-4) 1-6 7-6 (7-5) victor over Denis Istomin, while Gilles Muller (3) was also taken the distance in his beating of Andreas Seppi.

However, fellow seeds Adrian Mannarino and Joao Sousa both bit the dust, the former was a 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 6-1 loser against Marcos Baghdatis, and the latter fell 7-5 7-6 (8-6) to Maximilian Marterer. Marius Copil was a comfortable 6-2 6-2 winner against Blaz Kavcic.
