The match between Kecmanović and Fric, the 61st and 20th tennis players in the world, lasted an hour and 58 minutes.
Both tennis players kept their serves in the first set, so the first part of the game was decided in a tie-break. The American opened the tie-break better and took the lead with 1: 5, and in the end he celebrated with 5: 7.
Kecmanović managed to break in the second set in the eighth game, and then used the third set ball in the next game.
