Jonas.

I'm afraid we won't see him on the tour much longer. He is sort of the last of a kind.

You know things aren't going well when you get broken multiple times on grass by Karlovic...

But still, Jonas is a joy to watch and it'll be a sad day when he retires.

Jonas is indeed a great player to watch, but I guess his days on the tour are counted...

Congrats Dr. Ivo!

Looking up at this match I was thinking that Ivo should win here but still wonder if Ivo would win at an hypothetical best-of-five match at Wimbledon.

Players who are unbroken on grass 2008
Federer 5 matches played, 49/49 service games won
Karlovic 4 matches played, 48/48 service games won.
Dr.Ivo had quality opponent in Queens, Nadal, and he is still unbroken.
