Ivo was feeling some pain in his right arm and obviously didnt serve and play at his best.Hope he'll be fine for tomorrow.

Given how well Ivo tends to do at Wimbledon, he may as well play on here and try to win the title.

Not a single tiebreaker in three sets

Seppi somehow broke him in the second set

Karlovic faced as many break points today, 3 in total, as he had done in his 5 previous matches on grass this season, and finally dropped his serve on the surface for the first time this year in the 2nd set.

i agree. He definetly improved a lot. he can sneak out some forehand winners and bh slice drop shots and finish points off the net. If his opponents underestimate his baseline game, karlovic will make them pay.

Re: Nottingham QF : Dr Ivo def Seppi 6-3 3-6 6-4

I like Karlovic although his game is quite one dimensional ,but I think that he deserves all the credit. Not much people believed that he is capable of doing something seriously in his tennis career when he was in his 19,20's !

For those who don't know Ivo is stutterer but he managed to win against that problem , It just shows that he is hard worker.

However, I don't expect him to do well at Wimbledon. His ability to serve in 5 setters is quite questionable.He lost last year in 1rd, simply because in the 4rth and 5th set his serve % dropped .
