Dude, Clement was ripping returns off of 142 mph serves for winners. Fifth set effort and level of play did seem to lag from Ivo, but he played brilliantly in the 4th. No choking, even the 1st set TB he lost was because Clement hit winners off of 3 Ivo 1st serves. Just because someone loses doesn't mean it's a choke. Did you even watch the match? Ivo looked pretty damn good. Broke Clement 4 times.
