Ivo did amazing on 2nd serves today winning 24 out of 29 points, and pulled out another clutch win, but in general I don't think 0 double faults is a good stat for Ivo to have. I think Ivo is too conservative on 2nd serves. He tends to have very very few double faults and he often stays back and tries to rally on the 2nd serve. I think he should put more on his 2nd serve like Isner, and he'd win a higher percentage of them even if his double faults went up a bit. I think 2 or 3 double faults a set would be fine, particularly against players like Federer and Ferrer, who he really can't compete with from the baseline.

Pim Pim match should be a close one. I definitely don't see any breaks coming in that one.

Ivo in QF Pim Pim withdrew due to illness Ivo had 2 days to recover from the Massu match,if he gets past Clement who is always tough for him because of his great return skills,I think he has a good chance to win it all!

I think you're right, if he can get by Clement he has an excellent chance of winning the tournament, especially if it's Blake in the final. Clement will be tough as always. I hope this surface favors Ivo and he makes his 1st serves in the tie breakers.

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

Not a nice way to win but a win is a win.
I'm a bit afraid of Clement. I still remember that USO match
But c'mon Ivo you can beat him

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

I think this was Ivo's 100th career singles win
And he finally gets positive in that 100-98 after today

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

It was not that close at all
6-4 6-3 vs. Haas
Didn't face a bp till he served for the match, then saved 3 (0:40), hit four aces in a row from 15:40 to close the match

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

I was watching the sports news on Croatian television and i'm not sure if i saw it correctly, but i think it was writing they'll show tomorrow's match live on HTV2
As I said, they didn't show any of his finals this year.
Finally

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

Let's go Ivo, beat ToJo and win tournament #3!

What do you want to bet Ivo draws Clement or Santoro 1st round next week at TMS. They both got into the main draw.

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

Ivo will draw a stronger seeded player for second round, i don't know about the first but he should win that however.

Re: ~Ivo Karlovic*["King Karlo"]*Thread!~

Title #3 this year. Croatia should be proud of Ivo. He really is now one of the top players on the ATP tour. Next year he will surely have some strong Grand Slam showings. He's just too good not to now. The Davis Cup captain should finally treat Ivo with respect and meet his requests, if it's not too late, so Ivo will play for his country even if they never supported him. I bet there is some way they can come to an agreement.
