SOFIA: Denmark's Holger Rune beat Tim van Rijthoven 7-6(2), 7-6(6) in a hard-hitting first-round clash of the Sofia Open, here on Tuesday. There was little to separate Rune and Van Rijthoven. However, Run's ability to raise his level in a pair of tie-breaks ultimately proved decisive, ensuring his maiden appearance at the ATP 250 indoor hard-court event was a successful one. Despite firing only 18 winners to Van Rijthoven's 27, Rune showed his mettle under pressure at key moments in the pair's maiden ATP meeting, most significantly when he saved a set point at 5/6 in the second-set tie-break.
