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.
