Kitzbuhel, Austria (Sports Network) - Rain was the big winner Wednesday at the
Kitzbuhel Cup as much of the day's action was postponed or suspended, but a
trio of second-round matches were completed and second-seeded Florian Mayer of
Germany was among the losers.
Italy's Simone Bolelli knocked off the Wimbledon quarterfinalist on Wednesday
with a 6-2, 7-6 (7-4) victory. He'll next face fifth-seeded Martin Klizan, as
the Slovakian was also able to complete his second-round match and posted a
6-4, 6-4 triumph over countrymate Pavol Cervenak.
The only other completed match saw Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic claim a
6-3, 5-7, 6-3 win over Croatian qualifier Antonio Veic. Rosol, who provided
the biggest upset at Wimbledon this year with a second-round victory over
Rafael Nadal, will next meet the winner between top-seeded Philipp
Kohlschreiber of Germany and Hungarian qualifier Attila Balazs.
Kohlschreiber was probably thankful for the wet weather after Balazs won the
first three games of their second-round match before play was halted.
Weather permitting, the second round will resume Thursday with quarterfinal
action to follow.
