Re: Basel R2: Ivo Karlovic outsmarts James Blake 4:6 7:6(4) 6:4
Ivo looked great off the ground. Blake gets tight in the clutch but he certain has solid hard ground strokes, particularly the forehand, but Ivo really kept up well in the rallies and dished out his share of winners, including a few topspin backhands. I'm impressed, not so much by the win, but by his level of play.
