Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Great win for IVO and he moves on to the semi's. A whole load of aces again and saving BP's several times with serves as always. Hewitt had SP's in the second breaker but couldn't get the job done.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

For a serve fest, the match took awfully long to be completed. 2hrs and 7 min.

Hewitt must be feeling like crap now. Hope he gives a statement like Monfils did against Isner sometime back.

Hewiit now is bad...On his 3th setpoints in tie he was very passive and Ivo beat him...on IVO's MP Hewitt attack in 2nd Karlo's serve but ball flyes in volley....

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Lleyton has really lost all confidence mentally, how he managed to choke that 2nd TB, i have no idea.

Lleyton is much better than this

Well done Ivo

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Didn't really expect this given that Ivo doesn't recover so well from long matches in the previous day...excellent win!

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Ivo's drop shot at the 1st tb was the highlight of the match.

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

You can conclude after this match Ivo is well inside Lleyton´s head

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Dr.Ivo = Hewitt Killa.

Well done Karlovic. Got to love tennis. Karlovic can't beat Melzer 0-5. Melzer can't defeat Hewitt 0-5 or 0-6 and it seems Hewitt can't get over Karlovic 0-3.

Ivo now needs to do well in Slams.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Yeah it is strange.

I wonder how Ivo will do against Ferrer, given that the latter is also a bad match for him.

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Too bad I couldn't watch it.
Most remarkable stat for me is Ivo won only 9/22 points on second serve but still managed to not get broken. 73% first serves helped a lot apparently.

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

Ferrer should eat Ivo for breakfast realistically.

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Hewitt had a set point in the second set on his serve, but Karlovic hit a pretty good slice backhand down-the-line approach to save it. Hewitt played the next two points poorly though dumping some weak shots into the net. That seems to be a trademark of his these days on some important points.

In the late stages of the first set and in the tie-break (I didn't watch the first half of the set), Hewitt was hitting to Karlovic's backhand hoping for him to make an error and not really taking control of the point, while Ivo would keep it in play sometimes and go for it when he got a forehand. The second set was more of a formality with not much going on until the tie-break apart from one game where Karlovic saved some break points with good serving.

Re: Dr. Ivo defeats Hewitt 7-6 7-6

Ivo's serve is better then Isner's. So Ivo has a decent chance of holding then John did.
