Garin battles past Wawrinka to reach Erste Bank Open Vienna round 2
The 2nd set proved an even less interesting affair as both players served well and played well. Wawrinka had two consecutive set points late in the set again but Garin saved them both. He then forced another one in the same game but once again he could not pull through. After that, we ended up in the tiebreak where Garin jumped out to a 3-0 lead but Stan fought back to win it 11-9. Wawrinka barely won the tiebreak having botched several set points before using one. Despite the set victory, Stan came out flat in the final one. Garin quickly broke him in the 2nd game and found himself up 3-0.
After that, it was a calm cruise towards the end of the match. Wawrinka was winning his own game mainly due to lack of interest from Garin to contest it and Garin was winning his service because he was playing good enough to that. Ultimately it ended at 6-3 for Garin.
