That's almost unreal. Ivo, Ivo...

Very surprising, you'd have thought his serve might have got him through a few.

It's becoming almost like tradition for Ivo to lose 1st round of the summer slams in 5 sets. That's three in a row at Wimby and now here at RG too.

You can almost understand why Croatia feels no urge to convince Ivo to play Davis Cup.

It's almost impossible to serve at a high level all the time in a 5 setters especially towards the end.

It's not surprising. If you want to win 5th set, you have to break. He can't break my grandma.

Serving only can get you so far.

Not at every slam
And he can break, he proves that in the normal tournaments, and also today against Ancic. Don't know what GSs do to his mind, same holds for Soderling.

The Santoro match was the worst loss of all of them. Ivo did not face a single bp until 4-5 in the fifth

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world
