This match is a great example of how one can dominate with superior serves and serve return.
John Tran has a ferocious forehand and a blistering backhand that Feth can't cope with (who can?). However, Tran could hardly return any of Stefan's serves without setting up Feth for a 3rd ball attack. Stefan, otoh, mostly returned Tran's serve effectively taking John "thwack" Tran out of his comfort zone.
