Austrian Jurgen Melzer reached the Malaysian Open quarterfinals as he eliminated Rik de Voest of South Africa 6-0, 6-4.

Melzer was playing with lots of confidence and de Voest never looked like he could stand in the way of the Austrian’s victory.

“The first set was one of the best sets I’ve played all year for sure,” Melzer said after the match.

While I'll admit I laeuhgd about the too late to play in Laver Arena story at the time, I also knew that he would mature. He's got a great game, composure, and I like the way he thinks on court. Here in the US, where there's much gnashing of teeth over the state of American tennis, there is similar attention on Ryan Harrison at the moment. Harrison seems to love playing the villain , though in an all-too-conventional way. If these guys both mature, it could be a terrific future rivalry.
