The Spaniard Roberto Carballes Baena got the better of last year’s runner-up of St. Petersburg Open the Slovak Martin Klizan – 6/2, 7/5.

In 1 hour, 29 minutes the winner of the match managed to save 4 out 5 break-points. In the first set Klizan couldn’t do much agaisnt his opponent – the Spaniard broke twice to quickly win the set. In the second the Slovak staged a comeback but still it  wasn’t enough for last year’s finalist to take the match into the third set.

“I think, this is my first victory indoor on hard. The surface is slow, so there were a lot of long rallies. I hope that I will play my next match well”, The Spaniard commented on his victory.

In the next match Carballes-Baena face 3rd seeded Matteo Berrettini from Italy.
