I saw it coming when I first saw the draw. It's still maddening though.

Joachim Johansson / Ivo Karlovic / Andy Roddick / Ernests Gulbis / John Isner / Chris Guccione / Feliciano Lopez / Jo-Wilfried Tsonga / Ivan Ljubicic / Mario Ancic / Michael Llodra / Gilles Muller / Xavier Malisse / Max Mirnyi / Nicolas Mahut / Robin Söderling / Frank Dancevic / Olivier Rochus / Robert Kendrick

This was a truly horrible match and Ivo choked badly
First set up 4-1*
Second up *4-3
Third went up *4-3,saved 0-40,and finally won it
Fourth went down 0-2,got back,missed 5 bp's,won the TB
Fifth just gave up after being broken early.

karlovic seems to be getting broken quite a bit recently.

good win for arnaud. he had a few unlucky shots with the net toward the end of the second and i thought he may not recover.
he has a good shot to make the third round now.

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.

i knew it when i saw the draw.
Great match from both players. It is shame karlovic had to lose today but he isn't losing any ranking points here.
So i can't wait for the indoor season to begin.
