Later on in the second and third set, while Maden continues to play patiently while Mies was just rushing to finish points. It's a good win though, since Mies does seem to have more power and heavy ground strokes from both wings.
Maden is always calm on the court. His strength is that everything he does seems planned and it's evident he knows what he is doing. He can get overpowered though and the match I saw last year Mies was clicking. But Maden probably out manuevered him and as you said out-thinked him on the court.
