The Dr gets another win and they are all good wins for him.

Did Massu get a break in the whole match?

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

no breaks for Massu, he had 3 chances to break

Ivo was 1/11 in BP conversion, he could and should have closed this match earlier

Any match with Massu that jerk takes at least 2 hours and a half.

Karlovic is a good enough player off the ground now that he should be able to get a break in two sets of tennis with Massu but it can be seen as a good sign that he got the job done in a tight match when he presumably didn't play his best. It wasn't that long ago that he never won matches without this sort of scoreline.

He took 1 hour 49 to lose 3 and 2 to Nadal last year and over five hours to lose to Sela in four in DC recently.

Re: Dr. Ivo beats Massu 7-6 6-7 6-4

on serving games from massu there were 50-60 seconds between points and I doubt that there were many baseline rallies there

There seemed to be about a 10 minute break at 5-5 in the 1st set. Anyone know what that was about?

I think Ivo is better at breaking serve on slower surfaces actually. You wouldn't think it would help him in rallies, but maybe it's because of the service return itself.
