YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
I am shocked and stoked all at the same time. Never would have thought he could do this yet on the circuit. Must have developed something in the off season. And thank god he did not fold after beating Moya!

Yay Somdev! I knew he could pull it off! Crowd was definitely behind him and probably made Ivo nervous, still such a big win. Wonder where this puts him ranking wise

Dev should be Top 50 player at the end of this season.

Re: Somdev Devvarman defeats Ivo Karlovic 7-6(4),6-4

Still yet to see him, but this is probably his best win to date, so well done!

However, it is a little easy to go overboard...Kim isn't a particularly great player, Moya is a little washed-up these days, and Karlovic can be unpredictable. But, to his credit, the latter two have a wealth of experience over him...

Re: Somdev Devvarman defeats Ivo Karlovic 7-6(4),6-4

from what I saw of it Dev was mostly pushing from way behind the the baseline though he was able to mix things up by slicing a few backhands which produced a hell of a lot of ue's from Ivo's forehand.

Ivo played like absolute shit. Let Devvarman escape 0-30 twice when he had control of points, missed a ton of easy shots in the tb, and should never have come close to being broken in that last game Dreadful stuff

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Hmmmm not so sure. He really needs to develop a weapon and a better serve. At least from what I saw on my tv screen a few times And these matches were during his college days.

Good win by dealing with the big man's serve.

Hopefully he developed some more muscle in the off season so he can get a weopen to hurt an ATP player.

He said that Andy worked on his serve with him during their 3-week training stint in the off-season, maybe it's a bit better now

Top 50 is not a reasonable goal at all. Still this is a good win and he returned serve pretty well
